Memcached is a memory caching platform, which has been gaining popularity lately due to its effectiveness. It’s used to cache queries and replies between a database and the app that uses it, which can enhance the performance of your Internet site and reduce the produced server load substantially. Every time a page on an app-powered website is opened, the app connects to the database and "asks" what information should be shown, and then extracts it. With Memcached, these procedures are omitted, as the platform has already cached all the content that should show up on a particular page. If any data is edited, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the site visitors will never see outdated data. The Memcached platform is an ideal choice for any website that has plenty of visitors, since it will make it blazing-fast and will improve the user experience.

Memcached in Website Hosting

The Memcached distributed memory object caching system is offered as an optional upgrade with every website hosting that we offer and you will be able to start using it the moment you activate it, as the PHP extension that it needs so as to function properly is pre-installed on our advanced cloud hosting platform. You can order the upgrade via the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with each web hosting package and a new section where you can manage Memcached will appear. The upgrade is divided into two parts – the instances and the amount of system memory, so as to offer you more freedom. The first one shows the number of the Internet sites which can use the Memcached caching system, while the second one, which is available in increments of 16 megabytes, defines the total size of the content that can be cached by the system. A regularly visited Internet site with a very large database may need more memory in order to take an even bigger advantage of the Memcached caching system, so if you need to upgrade this service, you will be able to do it at any moment with several clicks.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can get the Memcached memory caching system as an optional upgrade with all our semi-dedicated servers and since it works with any script-based application, you can use it for every Internet site that you host on our servers, irrespective of what app you have used – Joomla, WordPress or Mambo, a custom app, etc. You can add the upgrade from the respective section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel from which you manage your semi-dedicated account, and you can select two different features – the instances and the amount of memory that they will use. To put it in simple terms, these things show how many sites will use the Memcached caching system and the amount of system memory that the system will be able to use to cache your info. The two features are ordered separately for more freedom and one instance does not come bundled with a pre-defined amount of system memory. You can make full use of Memcached with any kind of website and both you and your site visitors will quickly detect the difference in the overall performance.
