Memcached is an object caching system, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years owing to its efficiency. It’s used to cache queries and responses between a database and the application that’s using it, which can enhance the performance of your Internet site and decrease the produced load immensely. Anytime a page on an app-driven Internet site is opened, the application connects to the database and "asks" what information should be shown, and then pulls it. With Memcached, these steps are omitted, as the platform has already cached the content that should show up on a specific page. If any content is modified, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ too, so the visitors will never end up seeing out-of-date data. The Memcached platform is a perfect solution for every website that draws numerous viewers, since it will make it load faster and will improve the overall user experience.

Memcached in Cloud Web Hosting

You can take advantage of the Memcached data caching system with all Linux cloud web hosting offered by us. It’s offered as an upgrade, which you can add with only a couple of mouse clicks through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It needs an extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud hosting platform, so you can start using the Memcached caching system as soon as you order it. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts, which will offer you more versatility depending on the websites that you’d like to use it for. The first one reveals the number of the Internet sites that will use Memcached, or the so-called ‘instances’, whereas the second one refers to the memory, i.e. to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can order more memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you have, the more content will be cached, which may be a good idea for regularly visited sites with very large databases and numerous users. Thus, you can supercharge the overall performance of every script-powered website hosted on our cloud servers without effort.

Memcached in Dedicated Hosting

When you acquire one of our Linux dedicated hosting and if you select Hepsia as your website hosting Control Panel at signup, you’ll get the Memcached caching platform as standard and you can use it with each Internet site that you host on the dedicated machine without upgrading or installing anything. It will begin caching content as people visit your Internet site, so you’ll detect the effect of using it shortly after that. The minimum amount of memory that will be available to the platform is three gigabytes and naturally, the more powerful the plan, the more system memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will permit you to use the platform for a large number of websites or for an extremely popular site without compromising its efficiency. The Memcached caching platform will enable you to boost the load speed of any database-driven Internet site in no time – a Joomla portal, a WordPress personal weblog, an OpenCart e-shop, etc., and to enhance the overall performance of your dedicated server.
