Memcached is a data caching platform, which has been gaining in popularity lately thanks to its efficiency. It’s used to cache requests and replies between a database and the app that is using it, which can increase the overall performance of your website and reduce the produced server load tremendously. Anytime a page on an app-driven website is opened, the app connects to the database and "asks" what info should be displayed, and then drags it. With Memcached, these steps are omitted, since the platform has already cached all of the content that should be displayed on a given web page. When any data is changed, the Memcached content is updated too, so the website visitors will never see out-of-date data. The platform is a perfect choice for every website that attracts lots of viewers, as it will make it ultra-fast and will improve the overall user experience.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

The Memcached object caching system is available as an upgrade with each and every Linux cloud package offered by our company and you will be able to begin using it once you activate it, as the extension that it needs in order to work correctly is already available on our advanced cloud hosting platform. You can request the upgrade via the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes bundled with each and every plan and a new section where you can manage Memcached will appear. The upgrade is divided into two parts – the instances and the memory, so as to offer you more flexibility. The first one shows the number of the websites that can use Memcached, while the second, which is offered in increments of 16 MB, specifies the maximum size of the content that the system can cache. A traffic-heavy site with a large database may need more memory to take an even bigger advantage of Memcached, so if you need to upgrade this service, you’ll be able to do it at any point with a few clicks of the mouse.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Memcached is available free of charge with all Linux dedicated servers hosting packages that we offer and the only requirement is that the dedicated machine must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can use the caching system for any database-driven website, including those that are based on widely used apps – for instance, a WordPress blog or a Joomla-powered social networking site. Each dedicated server comes with a specific amount of memory that Memcached can use, but the minimum amount you will get is three gigabytes, which is quite enough to enhance the speed of extremely heavy sites greatly, as this very memory will be dedicated to storing the cached content. The Memcached system will begin storing content once it is activated, so soon after that, you will distinguish the optimized performance of your Internet sites and the decreased server load. Many websites use Memcached to enhance their effectiveness, including famous ones like Reddit and Wikipedia.
