Memcached is a memory caching platform, which has been gaining popularity lately thanks to its efficiency. It’s used to cache calls and responses between a database and the app that is using it, which can improve the performance of your Internet site and lessen the produced server load considerably. Every time a page on an application-driven site is accessed, the app connects to the database and "asks" what info should be displayed, and then pulls it. With Memcached, these procedures are omitted, since the platform has already cached all the content that should show up on a certain page. If any content is changed, the Memcached content is updated too, so the website visitors will never end up seeing out-of-date data. The Memcached platform is a perfect solution for every Internet site that has a lot of visitors, since it will make it super-fast and will improve the overall user experience.

Memcached in Cloud Web Hosting

Memcached is offered as an optional upgrade with each and every cloud web hosting plan that we’re offering and in case you want to use it for any script-driven Internet site that you host on our avant-garde cloud hosting platform, you’ll be able to order it in a few easy steps through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. In the meantime, you’ll be given the option to upgrade two different things – the instances and the system memory. The first one is related to the number of the websites that can use the Memcached memory caching system simultaneously, so if you need it for several Internet sites, you can order a number of instances. The second one refers to the maximum amount of memory that the system will be permitted to use in order to cache content, so for many websites (or for one single resource-demanding site), you may want to order more memory for improved performance. The memory comes in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be ordered at any time. With Memcached, every script-based site hosted on our servers will load extra-fast.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can get the Memcached memory caching system as an upgrade with each of our semi-dedicated plans and since it works with any script-based web app, you can use it for any Internet site that you host on our platform, irrespective of what application you have used – Joomla, WordPress or Mambo, a custom-built application, etc. You can order the upgrade from the respective section of the Hepsia Control Panel from which you administer your semi-dedicated account, and you can choose two different features – the number of instances and the amount of memory that they will use. Basically, these things indicate the number of the websites that will use the Memcached caching system and the maximum amount of system memory that the system will be able to use in order to cache your info. The two features are ordered separately for more flexibility and one instance does not come with a particular amount of memory. You can use the Memcached system with any sort of website and both you and your website visitors will quickly notice the difference in the overall performance.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

Any dedicated server ordered with our Hepsia Control Panel comes with Memcached already installed by default, so you can begin using this distributed memory caching system as soon as your dedicated server is up and running, without needing to install or upgrade anything. The amount of memory that Memcached can employ depends on the dedicated server that you have picked, but as our servers are exceptionally powerful and due to the fact that it’s likely that you will host resource-demanding sites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the caching system can use is three gigabytes. This will allow you to boost the performance of extremely busy sites effortlessly and you will see the difference soon after Memcached begins caching database queries. You can make use of the caching system with any database-powered portal, including those that are based on widely used CMSs like WordPress and Joomla.
