Memcached is a data caching platform, which has been gaining popularity in recent years thanks to its efficiency. It is used to cache requests and responses between a database and the app that is using it, which can accelerate the performance of your website and lessen the created load substantially. Anytime a webpage on an application-powered site is opened, the application connects to the database and "asks" what information should be displayed, and then extracts it. With Memcached, these steps are omitted, as the platform has already cached all the content that should show up on a certain webpage. In case any content is updated, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the site visitors will never see out-of-date data. The platform is an ideal option for every site that draws plenty of viewers, since it will make it faster than the blink of an eye and will improve the user experience.

Memcached in Shared Hosting

You can make use of the Memcached memory caching system with all Linux shared packages that we’re offering. It’s offered as an optional upgrade, which you can add with just a few mouse clicks through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It needs a PHP extension, which is already installed on our cloud hosting platform, so you can start using the Memcached caching system as soon as you add it. The upgrade is separated into two parts, which will offer you more flexibility depending on the Internet sites that you would like to use it for. The first part reveals the number of the sites that will use Memcached, or the ‘instances’, while the second one is related to the system memory, i.e. to how much content the system will be able to cache. You can add more memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you’ve got, the more data will be cached, which may be a rather good idea for busy websites with large databases and plenty of concurrent visitors. Thus, you can boost the speed of any script-powered website hosted on our servers effortlessly.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can add the Memcached object caching platform to any of the Linux semi-dedicated packages that we’re offering and use its full potential for any script-powered Internet site hosted by us. The upgrade is available through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can select two things – the number of instances and the memory. These things indicate the number of the sites that can use Memcached and the amount of memory that it will use to store your information. You can select them independently, since one instance is not tied to a fixed amount of system memory, so you can use lots of memory for one resource-requiring site, for example. This upgrade is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order as much memory as you want. The platform can be used with any script-driven site regardless of its type, including those that are based on popular apps like Drupal, Joomla or WordPress, and a lot of companies such as Zynga and Wikipedia are already using it to enhance the loading speed of their websites.
