Memcached is a distributed memory object caching platform, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years because of its effectiveness. It’s used to cache queries and replies between a database and the application that’s using it, which can increase the performance of your site and decrease the produced server load significantly. Every time a webpage on an application-driven site is visited, the application connects to the database and "asks" what info should be displayed, and then pulls it. With Memcached, these steps are skipped, as the platform has already cached the content that should be shown on a certain page. In case any content is changed, the Memcached content is updated as well, so the users will never see old data. Memcached is a perfect solution for every Internet site that has many viewers, since it will make it lightning-fast and will improve the overall user experience.
Memcached in Cloud Web Hosting
The Memcached caching system is offered as an optional upgrade with each Linux cloud web hosting package
that we are offering and you will be able to start using it as soon as you activate it, as the extension that it requires so as to function correctly is pre-installed on our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform. You can order the upgrade from the Hepsia Control Panel, which is available with every web hosting package and a brand new section where you can manage Memcached will show up. The upgrade is separated into two parts – the instances and the amount of memory, so as to give you more flexibility. The first one shows the number of the websites which can use the Memcached caching system, whereas the second, which comes in increments of 16 MB, determines the total size of the content that the system can cache. A traffic-intensive website with a very large database may need more memory in order to take an even bigger advantage of the Memcached caching system, so in case you would like to upgrade this feature, you will be able to do it at any given moment with a couple of clicks.

, a custom application, etc. You can order the upgrade via the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel from which you administer your semi-dedicated server account, and you can select two different features – the instances and the amount of memory that they will use. To put it simply, these things determine the number of the Internet sites that will use the Memcached caching system and how much system memory the system will be able to use in order to cache your information.

This will permit you to enhance the overall performance of numerous sites hosted on the VPS at the same time and to lower the load on the virtual machine even if you’ve got frequently visited script-powered web pages with plenty of viewers.

You can enhance the overall performance of any website, regardless of what script-based web app you are using or how busy the site is, as the minimum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to use is 3 GB and this amount increases considerably with the more powerful servers. Soon after the system is enabled, it will begin caching information anytime someone visits your website, so, as soon as sufficient content has been cached, you’ll notice the lowered load on the server and the optimized overall performance of your Internet site.
