Memcached is an object caching platform, which has been gaining in popularity lately thanks to its effectiveness. It’s used to cache calls and replies between a database and the application that is using it, which can enhance the performance of your Internet site and decrease the created server load greatly. Every time a page on an application-driven Internet site is visited, the app connects to the database and "asks" what information should be displayed, and then pulls it. With Memcached, these steps are omitted, since the platform has already cached all the content that should appear on a specific webpage. If any content is modified, the Memcached content is updated too, so the visitors will never see outdated data. The platform is a perfect choice for every site that draws many visitors, as it will make it astonishingly fast and will improve the user experience.

Memcached in Shared Website Hosting

Memcached is available as an upgrade with each and every shared website hosting package offered by us and if you want to use it for any script-powered site that you host on our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform, you will be able to order it in several easy steps through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. In the meantime, you will be given the option to upgrade two different features – the instances and the system memory. The first one has to do with the number of the websites that can use the Memcached distributed memory object caching system simultaneously, so if you need it for several sites, you can get a handful of instances. The second one has to do with the maximum amount of memory that the system will be allowed to use in order to cache info, so for lots of websites (or for one busy site), you should get more memory for improved performance. The memory is available in increments of 16 MB and more memory can be ordered at any point. With the Memcached caching system, each script-based site hosted on our servers will open extra-fast.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

Memcached comes free of charge with all dedicated servers that we offer and the only requirement is that the dedicated server must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. You can use the data caching system for any database-driven site, including those based on famous web apps – for instance, a WordPress personal journal or a Joomla-powered community site. Each server comes with a specific amount of memory that the Memcached caching system can use, but the minimum you will get is 3 GB, which is sufficient enough to accelerate extremely heavy websites enormously, as this memory will be dedicated to storing the cached data. The Memcached system will begin caching data once it’s enabled, so soon thereafter, you’ll notice the optimized overall performance of your websites and the lowered load on your server. Numerous websites use the Memcached caching system to enhance their efficacy, among them famous ones such as Reddit and Wikipedia.
