Memcached is a caching system, which has been gaining popularity lately because of its effectiveness. It’s used to cache queries and responses between a database and the app that uses it, which can accelerate the performance of your site and lessen the produced server load substantially. Anytime a page on an app-powered site is accessed, the app connects to the database and "asks" what information should be shown, and then drags it. With Memcached, these steps are omitted, since the platform has already cached all of the content that should be displayed on a specific webpage. In case any content is updated, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ too, so the website visitors will never end up seeing out-of-date content. The Memcached platform is an ideal choice for every site that attracts plenty of visitors, as it will make it load much faster and will improve the overall user experience.

Memcached in Shared Web Hosting

You can take advantage of Memcached with all Linux shared web hosting that we offer. It’s available as an upgrade, which you can add with just a few mouse clicks through your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. It needs an extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud website hosting platform, so you can start using Memcached the moment you order it. The upgrade is divided into two parts, which will give you more versatility depending on the sites that you would like to use it for. The first part specifies the number of the Internet sites that will use Memcached, or the so-called ‘instances’, while the second one refers to the memory, i.e. to how much content the system will be able to cache. You can add more system memory in increments of 16 MB and the more memory you’ve ordered, the more data will be cached, which may be a rather good idea for frequently visited websites with large databases and numerous concurrent visitors. Thus, you can boost the overall performance of any script-based site hosted on our cloud servers effortlessly.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Memcached comes for free with all Linux dedicated servers hosting that we offer and the one and only requirement is that the dedicated server must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. You can use the distributed memory object caching system for any database-powered Internet site, including those that are based on popular apps – for instance, a WordPress online diary or a Joomla-powered social networking site. Each dedicated server comes with a given amount of memory that the Memcached caching system can use, but the minimum you’ll get is three gigabytes, which is quite enough to boost the speed of extremely busy websites significantly, since this memory will be dedicated to storing the cached info. The system will start storing content the moment it’s activated, so shortly thereafter, you’ll observe the enhanced overall performance of your websites and the decreased load on your server. Lots of sites use the Memcached caching system to increase their efficiency, among them famous ones such as Wikipedia and Reddit.
