Memcached is a distributed memory caching system, which has been gaining popularity in recent years thanks to its effectiveness. It is used to cache calls and replies between a database and the app that is using it, which can accelerate the overall performance of your website and decrease the created load substantially. Every time a web page on an app-driven website is opened, the app connects to the database and "asks" what information should be displayed, and then drags it. With Memcached, these steps are skipped, since the platform has already cached the content that should appear on a certain page. In case any data is updated, the Memcached content is updated as well, so the website visitors will never end up seeing outdated content. Memcached is a perfect solution for any Internet site that has plenty of visitors, as it will make it faster than light and will enhance the user experience.

Memcached in Shared Website Hosting

When you host script-based websites in a shared website hosting account with us, you can add the Memcached caching system to your hosting plan with just a couple of clicks via your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantaneously and, since the needed extension is pre-installed on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform, you can start using it straight away. To give you more flexibility, we offer two different upgrades related to the number of instances (in other words – how many sites will use Memcached) and to the memory that Memcached will use. The latter is available in increments of 16 megabytes and you can add memory whenever you need. Logically, the more memory Memcached is permitted to use, the more data it will cache, so in case you manage a traffic-consuming site with a lot of content, you may require more memory to be able to take advantage of the power that Memcached can offer you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you choose to host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account, you can take advantage of Memcached effortlessly, as the platform’s activation requires a couple of mouse clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The PHP extension that it requires is pre-installed on our servers, so you can start using the Memcached caching platform as soon as you add it to your semi-dedicated server account. You’ll be able to choose how many sites can use it and how much information can be cached, in other words – there’re two separate upgradable features – the number of instances and the system memory. You can add more of both, so if one of your sites becomes extremely busy, for example, you can always add more memory to it. Our system is amazingly flexible in this regard and we don’t tie a given number of instances to a fixed amount of system memory. You can use the Memcached caching platform to increase the speed of any script-powered Internet site, including those that are based on famous web applications, such as Joomla or WordPress.
