Memcached is a distributed memory caching platform, which has been gaining in popularity lately due to its efficiency. It’s used to cache calls and replies between a database and the app that is using it, which can enhance the performance of your website and reduce the created load substantially. Anytime a page on an application-driven Internet site is visited, the app connects to the database and "asks" what info should be displayed, and then drags it. With Memcached, these procedures are omitted, since the platform has already cached all the content that should be displayed on a certain webpage. In case any content is updated, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the site visitors will never see outdated data. The Memcached platform is an excellent choice for every website that attracts many visitors, since it will make it open faster and will enhance the overall user experience.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

You can take advantage of the Memcached content caching system with all Linux cloud packages offered by our company. It is available as an upgrade, which you can add with only a few clicks of the mouse via your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. It requires an extension, which is already installed on our cloud hosting platform, so you can begin using the Memcached caching system as soon as you order it. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts, which will offer you more flexibility depending on the Internet sites that you wish to use it for. The first one specifies the number of the sites that will use Memcached, or the so-called ‘instances’, while the second one is related to the memory, in other words – to how much content the system will be able to cache. You can get more system memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you’ve got, the more data will be cached, which may be a quite good idea for frequently visited sites with large-size databases and many simultaneous visitors. In this way, you can improve the speed of any script-based site hosted on our servers with ease.

Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting

Any dedicated server that’s ordered with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel comes with Memcached pre-installed by default, so you can start using this memory caching system as soon as your server is up and running, without the need to upgrade or install anything. The amount of memory that Memcached can use depends on the dedicated server that you’ve picked, but since our servers are amazingly powerful and given the fact that it is likely that you will host resource-hungry Internet sites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the system can use will be 3 GB. This will allow you to boost the overall performance of very popular sites effortlessly and you will notice the difference soon after the Memcached system begins caching database requests. You can take full advantage of the caching system with any database-driven site, including those based on famous Content Management Systems such as WordPress and Joomla.
