Memcached is a memory caching platform, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years due to its effectiveness. It’s used to cache queries and replies between a database and the application that uses it, which can improve the performance of your website and reduce the generated server load significantly. Anytime a webpage on an app-driven Internet site is visited, the application connects to the database and "asks" what info should be shown, and then extracts it. With Memcached, these steps are skipped, since the platform has already cached the content that should appear on a specific web page. If any content is edited, the Memcached content is updated too, so the visitors will never see out-of-date content. Memcached is an excellent solution for any Internet site that attracts a lot of viewers, since it will boost its loading speed and will enhance the overall user experience.

Memcached in Cloud Website Hosting

When you host script-based sites in a cloud website hosting account with our company, you’ll be able to add the Memcached data caching system to your web hosting package with only a couple of clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantaneously and, since the required extension is pre-installed on our avant-garde cloud hosting platform, you can begin using it right away. To give you more versatility, we offer two separate upgrades related to the number of instances (in other words – how many sites will use Memcached) and to the amount of memory that Memcached will use. The latter comes in increments of 16 MB and you can add memory as many times as you like. Naturally, the more memory the Memcached caching system is permitted to use, the more content it will cache, so if you own a resource-absorbing website with a lot of content, you may require more memory to be able to take advantage of the power that Memcached can give you.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

When you obtain one of our dedicated servers and if you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel during the signup procedure, you’ll get the Memcached content caching platform by default and you can activate it for each website that you host on the dedicated server without upgrading or installing anything. It will start caching data as people access your website, so you’ll notice the results of using it soon thereafter. The minimum amount of memory that will be available to the caching platform is three gigabytes and normally, the more powerful the dedicated plan, the more memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will permit you to use the caching platform for multiple Internet sites or for a very heavy site without compromising its efficiency. The Memcached caching platform will enable you to increase the loading speed of any database-powered site very quickly – a Joomla portal, a WordPress weblog, an OpenCart e-store, etcetera, and to improve the performance of your server.
