Memcached is an object caching system, which has been gaining in popularity lately thanks to its efficiency. It’s used to cache queries and replies between a database and the app that uses it, which can improve the performance of your Internet site and reduce the produced load significantly. Anytime a web page on an app-driven site is opened, the application 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 the content that should show up on a particular web page. In case any data is updated, the Memcached content is updated too, so the site visitors will never end up seeing old content. The platform is an ideal option for any site that lures plenty of viewers, since it will make it load faster and will improve the overall user experience.

Memcached in Shared Web Hosting

When you host script-driven websites in a shared web hosting account with our company, you will be able to add the Memcached data caching system to your hosting package with only a couple of clicks via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available immediately and, since the PHP extension needed for it is already installed on our innovative cloud website hosting platform, you can start using it right away. To give you more flexibility, we offer two separate upgrades related to the number of instances (i.e. how many Internet sites will use Memcached) and to the memory that the Memcached caching system will use. The latter is available in increments of 16 MB and you can add memory as many times as you want. Logically, the more memory the Memcached caching system is allowed to use, the more content it will cache, so if you run a busy website with a lot of data, you may require more memory in order to be able to take full advantage of the power that Memcached can offer you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you decide to host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to take advantage of Memcached effortlessly, since the object caching platform’s setup takes a few clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia Control Panel. The extension that is required is pre-installed on our servers, so you can begin using the Memcached platform as soon as you add it to your semi-dedicated server account. You’ll be able to choose how many Internet sites can use it and how much content it will cache, in other words – there’re two separate upgradable features – the number of instances and the memory. You can get more of both, so if one of your websites becomes extremely busy, for example, you can always add more memory to it. Our system is very flexible in this regard and we don’t bind a given number of instances to a fixed amount of memory. You can take advantage of Memcached to improve the speed of any script-driven Internet site, including those based on widely used web applications, such as Joomla or WordPress.
