Memcached is a data caching system, which has been gaining popularity lately due to its efficiency. It is used to cache queries and responses between a database and the application that’s using it, which can improve the overall performance of your Internet site and lessen the produced load tremendously. Every time a webpage on an app-driven Internet site is visited, the app connects to the database and "asks" what info should be displayed, and then drags it. With Memcached, these procedures are omitted, since the platform has already cached all of the content that should be shown on a certain page. If any data is modified, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the users will never end up seeing old content. Memcached is an excellent choice for any website that has a lot of visitors, since it will make it amazingly fast and will improve the overall user experience.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you order one of our semi-dedicated server packages, you will find Memcached as an optional feature in the Upgrades section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so if you wish to use it for any of the Internet sites hosted in your account, you can activate it with just a couple of clicks. The platform is perfect for any script-driven web application such as Joomla, WordPress, or even a tailor-made application, and based on your requirements, you will be able to select two different features – how many sites will use Memcached, i.e. the number of instances; and how much information will be stored, in other words – the amount of system memory that the platform will employ. The two things are not tied to each other, so if you own a high-demand Internet site with a lot of content, you can order one instance and a large amount of system memory. The Memcached platform will optimize the performance of your websites shortly after you enable it and both you and your visitors will enjoy better loading times.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

If you get one of our dedicated web hosting plans and if you choose Hepsia as your website hosting Control Panel at signup, you’ll get the Memcached caching platform by default and you can use it with any website that you host on your dedicated machine without upgrading or installing anything. It will begin storing information as users open your site, so you’ll see the effect of using it soon after that. The minimum amount of memory that will be available to the Memcached platform is 3 gigabytes and naturally, the more powerful the dedicate server package, the more memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will allow you to take advantage of the caching platform for many Internet sites or for a very popular Internet site without weakening its efficacy. The Memcached caching platform will enable you to optimize the loading speed of any database-powered site very quickly – a Joomla portal, a WordPress personal diary, an OpenCart e-shop, etcetera, and to optimize the performance of your server.
