Memcached is a distributed memory object caching platform, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years owing to its efficiency. It is used to cache queries and replies between a database and the application that uses it, which can improve the performance of your Internet site and reduce the created load considerably. Anytime a page on an app-powered site is opened, the application connects to the database and "asks" what information should be shown, and then fetches it. With Memcached, these steps are skipped, since the platform has already cached all of the content that should be displayed on a certain page. If any data is changed, the Memcached content is updated too, so the website visitors will never end up seeing old content. The platform is an ideal solution for any site that attracts plenty of viewers, as it will make it faster than the blink of an eye and will improve the overall user experience.

Memcached in Website Hosting

When you host script-driven sites in a website hosting account with us, you can add Memcached to your plan with only a couple of mouse clicks through your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantaneously and, since the necessary PHP extension is already installed on our avant-garde cloud website hosting platform, you can start using it right away. To give you more versatility, we offer two different upgrades related to the number of instances (i.e. how many websites will use Memcached) and to the memory that Memcached will use. The latter is available in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order as much memory as you need. Naturally, the more memory the Memcached caching system is allowed to use, the more content it will cache, so if you run a traffic-hungry website with a lot of data, you may require more memory to be able to make the most of the power that Memcached can give you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can add the Memcached data caching platform to any of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting plans that we offer and use its full capacity for any script-driven site hosted on our servers. The upgrade is offered through the Hepsia Control Panel and you can choose two features – the instances and the amount of system memory. These things indicate how many sites can use the Memcached platform and how much memory it will use to cache your content. You can select them separately, since a given instance is not bound to a particular amount of system memory, so you can use lots of memory for one resource-requiring website, for instance. This upgrade comes in increments of 16 megabytes and you can get as much memory as you like. The Memcached platform can be used with any script-driven website regardless of its type, including those that are based on popular web applications like Drupal, Joomla or WordPress, and plenty of companies like Zynga and Wikipedia are already using it to optimize the speed of their websites.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

Any dedicated server that is ordered with our Hepsia Control Panel comes with Memcached already installed by default, so you can start using this data caching system once the server is up and running, without having to upgrade or install anything. The amount of system memory that Memcached can employ depends on the very server that you have picked, but since our servers are unbelievably powerful and due to the fact that it’s likely that you will host resource-intensive sites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the caching system can use is three gigabytes. This will permit you to increase the overall performance of extremely busy Internet sites with ease and you will observe the difference soon after the Memcached caching system starts caching database requests. You can make use of the Memcached caching system with any database-powered web page, including those based on popular Content Management Systems like WordPress and Joomla.
