Memcached is a memory caching system, which has been gaining popularity in recent years owing to its effectiveness. It is used to cache requests and replies between a database and the app that’s using it, which can accelerate the overall performance of your site and lessen the produced load immensely. Anytime a web page on an app-powered Internet site is accessed, the app connects to the database and "asks" what info should be displayed, and then fetches it. With Memcached, these procedures are skipped, since the platform has already cached all the content that should be shown on a specific page. If any content is changed, the Memcached content is updated as well, so the website visitors will never see outdated data. The Memcached platform is an excellent choice for any Internet site that lures numerous visitors, as it will boost its loading speed and will enhance the user experience.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

The Memcached memory caching system comes as an upgrade with every cloud plan offered by our company and you’ll be able to start using it once you add it, as the extension that it needs in order to function correctly is pre-installed on our avant-garde cloud platform. You can order the upgrade via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes bundled with every hosting package and a brand new section where you can administer Memcached will appear. The upgrade is divided into two parts – the instances and the memory, so as to give you more flexibility. The first one shows the number of the websites that can use the Memcached caching system, whereas the second one, which comes in increments of 16 megabytes, defines the maximum size of the content that the system can cache. A heavy-traffic site with a large-size 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 feature, you will be able to do it at any given time with several clicks of the mouse.

Memcached in VPS Servers

You’ll get Memcached with any of the VPS server packages that we are offering when you select Hepsia as your Control Panel and you will be able to activate the caching platform through the section with the exact same name. The activation requires several mouse clicks and you’ll notice the difference in the performance of your Internet sites almost instantaneously. The amount of system memory that the Memcached caching platform can use to store information depends on the particular VPS hosting plan that you have picked, but in any case it will be at least several hundred MB, which is more than enough even for several heavy websites. You can use the Memcached platform with Internet sites based on WordPress, Joomla or any other software application and reduce the load on your virtual server, which will allow you to keep using the current Virtual Private Server package rather than moving to a more powerful one, as you simply won’t need it. Memcached is already being used by popular websites like Zynga, Wikipedia and Reddit, which is a proof of its effectiveness.
