Memcached is a distributed memory object caching platform, which has been gaining popularity in recent years because of its efficiency. It’s used to cache calls and replies between a database and the app that’s using it, which can enhance the overall performance of your website and decrease the produced server load greatly. Every time a page on an application-driven Internet site is opened, the app connects to the database and "asks" what info should be displayed, and then drags it. With Memcached, these procedures are omitted, as the platform has already cached all of the content that should appear on a specific page. If any data is modified, the Memcached content is updated as well, so the site visitors will never end up seeing outdated content. The platform is an ideal solution for any website that entices many viewers, since it will make it super-fast and will improve the user experience.

Memcached in Shared Hosting

You can use Memcached with all Linux shared hosting offered by us. It’s available as an upgrade, which you can get with only a few clicks of the mouse from your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. It needs a PHP extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud platform, so you can begin using the Memcached caching system the moment you add it. The upgrade is separated into two parts, which will give you more flexibility depending on the sites that you wish to use it for. The first part determines the number of the sites that will use Memcached, or the so-called ‘instances’, whereas the second one refers to the memory, i.e. to how much content the system will be able to cache. You can get more memory in increments of 16 MB and the more memory you’ve added, the more data will be cached, which may be an exceptionally good idea for busy websites with large-sized databases and many users. In this way, you can enhance the overall performance of every script-powered website hosted on our cloud servers without any effort.

Memcached in Dedicated Hosting

When you obtain one of our Linux dedicated hosting and if you choose Hepsia as your web hosting Control Panel during the signup procedure, you will get the Memcached content caching platform by default and you can set it up for any website that you host on your dedicated server without installing or upgrading anything. It will start caching data as people open your Internet site, so you will see the effects of using it shortly thereafter. The minimum amount of memory that will be available to the Memcached platform is three gigabytes and normally, the more powerful the dedicate server package, the more system memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will permit you to take advantage of the caching platform for a large number of Internet sites or for a very large Internet site without compromising its efficacy. The Memcached caching platform will allow you to increase the loading speed of any database-powered website very quickly – a Joomla portal, a WordPress personal blog, an OpenCart store, etcetera, and to optimize the overall performance of your dedicated machine.
