Memcached is a caching system, which has been gaining popularity in recent years thanks to its efficiency. It’s used to cache queries and responses between a database and the app that is using it, which can boost the performance of your site and reduce the generated server load tremendously. Anytime a web page on an app-driven site is accessed, the application connects to the database and "asks" what info should be shown, and then drags it. With Memcached, these procedures are omitted, since the platform has already cached all the content that should show up on a specific page. When any content is modified, the Memcached content is updated too, so the users will never see outdated data. The platform is an ideal choice for any Internet site that attracts many viewers, as it will increase its loading speed and will improve the user experience.

Memcached in Shared Hosting

You can use the Memcached object caching system with all shared hosting that we’re offering. It is available as an upgrade, which you can acquire with only a few mouse clicks via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It requires a PHP extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud website hosting platform, so you can start using Memcached as soon as you add it. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts, which will offer you more flexibility depending on the sites that you’d like to use it for. The first one shows the number of the websites that will use the Memcached caching system, or the ‘instances’, whereas the second one refers to the system memory, i.e. to how much content the system will be able to cache. You can add more system memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you have added, the more data will be cached, which may be a very good idea for traffic-heavy sites with very large databases and a lot of simultaneous visitors. Thus, you can supercharge the performance of every script-based website hosted on our servers with no effort.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

Memcached is available free of charge with all dedicated servers that we’re offering and the one and only condition is that the dedicated machine must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. You can use the distributed memory caching system for any database-driven site, including those that are based on famous Internet apps – for instance, a WordPress weblog or a Joomla-powered community portal. Each server is tied to a different amount of system memory that the Memcached system can use, but the minimum you will get is 3 gigabytes, which is sufficient enough to optimize the load speed of extremely busy websites immensely, since this memory will be dedicated to storing the cached information. The Memcached system will begin caching info the moment it is activated, so soon thereafter, you’ll detect the optimized overall performance of your Internet sites and the reduced load. Plenty of sites use Memcached to increase their efficiency, including famous ones like Wikipedia and Reddit.
