Memcached is a distributed memory object caching system, which has been gaining popularity lately because of its effectiveness. It is used to cache queries and replies between a database and the app that uses it, which can boost the performance of your website and lessen the created load significantly. Anytime a webpage on an application-powered site is opened, the app connects to the database and "asks" what info should be displayed, and then extracts it. With Memcached, these procedures are skipped, as the platform has already cached all the content that should be displayed on a certain webpage. When any content is updated, the Memcached content is updated too, so the visitors will never see old content. The Memcached platform is a perfect option for every site that entices lots of viewers, as it will make it faster than light and will improve the overall user experience.

Memcached in Shared Hosting

The Memcached distributed memory caching system is offered as an upgrade with every shared package offered by our company and you will be able to begin using it once you enable it, since the extension that it requires so as to perform properly is already installed on our leading-edge cloud website hosting platform. You can request the upgrade through the Hepsia Control Panel, which is available with each shared web hosting package and a brand-new Control Panel section where you can administer Memcached will appear. The upgrade is divided into two parts – the instances and the system memory, so as to give you more freedom. The first one refers to the number of the sites which can use Memcached, while the second, which comes in increments of 16 MB, defines the maximum size of the content that can be cached by the system. A frequently visited Internet site with a large-size database may require more memory so as to take an even greater advantage of the Memcached caching system, so in case you wish to upgrade this feature, you will be able to do it at any moment with a couple of mouse clicks.

Memcached in VPS Hosting

When you get a virtual private server from us, you will be able to use Memcached at no additional charge, as the distributed memory caching platform is available with all servers ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Even if you’ve got data-heavy websites, you’ll be able to increase their performance with ease and the reduced load on your VPS server will permit you to keep using your current package rather than switching to a more powerful one. The amount of memory that Memcached can use to cache content depends on the package that you’re using, but even with a less powerful one, you’ll get at least several hundred MB, which is significantly more than what you’d get with a shared package, so the website performance boost will be enormous. You can use the Memcached platform with any database-driven web application, no matter if you have developed it on your own or you are using a ready-for-use one like WordPress, OpenCart or Joomla.

Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting

You can unlock the full potential of Memcached with each dedicated server offered by us if you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel. A special section in it is dedicated to the caching system and you can start using Memcached for any Internet site hosted on the dedicated server with only a couple of clicks of the mouse. You can accelerate the performance of any site, irrespective of what script-driven web app you are using or how popular the site is, as the minimum amount of system memory that Memcached will be able to employ is three gigabytes and this amount grows significantly with the higher-end servers. Shortly after the caching system is enabled, it will start caching info every time somebody visits your website, so, as soon as sufficient data has been cached, you will see the decreased load on your dedicated server and the improved overall performance of your Internet site. The Memcached caching system is being used by lots of sites, among them popular portals such as Reddit, Zynga and Wikipedia, which is a proof of the effectiveness of the Memcached caching system.
