Memcached is a distributed 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 website and decrease the generated load significantly. Every time a web page on an app-driven Internet site is visited, the app connects to the database and "asks" what info should be shown, and then fetches it. With Memcached, these procedures are omitted, since the platform has already cached all the content that should appear on a certain webpage. In case any content is changed, the Memcached content is updated too, so the visitors will never see old content. Memcached is an excellent choice for any site that entices plenty of visitors, as it will make it faster than the speed of light and will enhance the user experience.

Memcached in Cloud Web Hosting

Memcached is available as an optional upgrade with each and every Linux cloud web hosting that we are offering and you’ll be able to start using it the moment you order it, since the PHP extension that it requires so as to perform properly is pre-installed on our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform. You can order the upgrade from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with each and every hosting plan and a new Control Panel section where you can manage Memcached will appear. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts – the number of instances and the amount of system memory, so as to offer you more versatility. The first one shows the number of the Internet sites that can use the Memcached caching system, while the second one, which comes in increments of 16 MB, indicates the total size of the content that can be cached by the system. A heavy-traffic website with a very large database may require more memory so as to take an even greater advantage of the Memcached caching system, so in case you want to upgrade this service, you’ll be able to do it at any given point with several mouse clicks.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Any dedicated server that’s ordered with our Hepsia Control Panel comes with Memcached already installed by default, so you can start using this content caching system the moment the dedicated server is fully operational, without needing to upgrade or activate anything. The amount of system memory that Memcached can employ depends on the very server that you’ve chosen, but as our servers are incredibly powerful and due to the fact that it’s likely that you’ll host resource-hungry sites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the system can use is three gigabytes. This will permit you to increase the overall performance of very popular sites without any effort and you’ll note the difference soon after the Memcached system begins caching database queries. You can use the Memcached caching system with any database-driven site, including those based on famous Content Management Systems such as Joomla and WordPress.
