Memcached is a content caching platform, which has been gaining in popularity lately owing to its effectiveness. It’s used to cache calls and responses between a database and the app that’s using it, which can enhance the overall performance of your site and reduce the generated server load substantially. Every time a page on an application-powered website is visited, the app connects to the database and "asks" what information should be shown, and then drags it. With Memcached, these procedures are skipped, as the platform has already cached all the content that should show up on a particular page. When any data is updated, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the users will never end up seeing out-of-date content. The Memcached platform is an excellent solution for every website that entices plenty of visitors, since it will boost its loading speed and will enhance the overall user experience.

Memcached in Website Hosting

The Memcached caching system comes as an upgrade with every Linux website hosting package offered by us and you will be able to begin using it as soon as you enable it, since the PHP extension that it needs in order to work properly is already present on our avant-garde cloud platform. You can order the upgrade from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with each and every shared web hosting plan and a brand-new Control Panel section where you can manage Memcached will show up. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts – the instances and the system memory, so as to offer you more freedom. The first one refers to the number of the Internet sites that can use Memcached, whereas the second one, which is offered in increments of 16 MB, indicates the total size of the content that can be cached by the system. A heavy-traffic Internet site with a large-size database may require more memory so as to take an even greater advantage of the Memcached caching system, so if you need to upgrade this feature, you will be able to do it at any time with a couple of mouse clicks.

Memcached in VPS Hosting

You will get Memcached with any of the virtual private server plans that we are offering if you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to activate the data caching platform through the Control Panel section with the exact same name. The activation requires several mouse clicks and you will detect the difference in the overall performance of your sites almost momentarily. The amount of memory that the Memcached platform can employ to store data depends on the given Virtual Private Server package that you have chosen, but in any case it will be at least several hundred MB, which is quite enough even for several traffic-consuming sites. You can use Memcached with websites driven by WordPress, Joomla or any other web-based app and decrease the load on your VPS server, which will permit you to continue using the current package instead of migrating to a more powerful one, since you simply won’t need it. Memcached is already being used by famous websites such as Zynga, Reddit and Wikipedia, which demonstrates its efficacy.
