Memcached is a caching platform, which has been gaining popularity in recent years owing to its efficiency. It’s used to cache calls and replies between a database and the app that is using it, which can increase the performance of your site and decrease the generated server load drastically. Every time a webpage on an application-powered website is accessed, the application connects to the database and "asks" what info should be shown, and then drags it. With Memcached, these procedures are skipped, as the platform has already cached all the content that should appear on a particular web page. In case any data is updated, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the site visitors will never end up seeing old content. The Memcached platform is an ideal choice for every website that has a lot of viewers, as it will make it faster than light and will enhance the user experience.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

When you host script-based sites in a cloud hosting account with us, you’ll be able to add the Memcached distributed memory caching system to your web hosting plan with only a few mouse clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available immediately and, since the PHP extension needed for it is pre-installed on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform, you can start using it right away. To give you more versatility, we offer two separate upgrades related to the number of instances (i.e. how many Internet sites will use Memcached) and to the system memory that Memcached will use. The latter is offered in increments of 16 MB and you can order as much memory as you want. Naturally, the more memory the Memcached caching system is permitted to use, the more content it will cache, so if you own a large-scale site with lots of data, you may require more memory so as to be able to make the most of the power that Memcached can give you.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

Memcached is available for free with all dedicated servers that we’re offering and the one and 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-powered Internet site, including those based on famous software apps – for example, a WordPress online journal or a Joomla-driven community site. Each dedicated server comes with a certain amount of memory that the Memcached caching system can employ, but the minimum you’ll get is 3 gigabytes, which is sufficient enough to boost the load speed of extremely large websites immensely, as this memory will be dedicated to storing the cached data. The system will start storing content the moment it is enabled, so soon after that, you’ll notice the optimized performance of your websites and the lowered load on the dedicated machine. Plenty of websites use the Memcached caching system to boost their efficacy, including famous ones like Reddit and Wikipedia.
