Memcached is a content caching system, which is used to improve the load speed of database-powered sites by caching the requests and the responses between the website visitor and the server. In simple terms, anytime a specific page on such a site is visited, the script calls its database to request the info that should be displayed to the visitor. If the latter clicks a link to visit some other page, the whole operation is repeated and this leads to multiple database queries and high server load, particularly if the site has a lot of simultaneous visitors. Memcached "memorizes" this exchange of information, so in case any of these web pages is requested again, the script no longer needs to extract any information from the database, as everything is provided by the caching platform. In this way, the overall load speed of your website will increase and you will have more gratified visitors and they will be able to navigate through your site faster. Plus, Memcached "refreshes" its cache every time any information in the database is edited, so the website users will never end up seeing old content.

Memcached in Cloud Website Hosting

When you host script-powered websites in a cloud website hosting account with us, you can add the Memcached data caching system to your shared hosting package with only a couple of clicks of the mouse from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantaneously and, since the extension required for it is pre-installed on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform, you can begin 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 offered in increments of 16 MB and you can order memory as many times as you wish. Naturally, the more memory the Memcached caching system is permitted to use, the more content it will cache, so if you manage a resource-requiring site with lots of data, you may need more memory so as to be able to take full advantage of the power that Memcached can give you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you order any of our semi-dedicated server packages, you’ll find Memcached as an optional upgrade in the Upgrades section of the Hepsia Control Panel, so if you’d like to use it for any of the websites hosted in your semi-dedicated account, you can add it with only a few mouse clicks. The object caching platform is perfect for any script-powered application such as Joomla, WordPress, or even a custom-developed app, and depending on your necessities, you will be able to choose two separate features – how many Internet sites will use the Memcached platform, i.e. the number of instances; and how much info will be cached, i.e. the amount of memory that the platform will employ. The two features are not bound to each other, so if you own a traffic-intensive site with lots of data, you can get one instance and a large amount of memory. Memcached will enhance the performance of your sites shortly after you activate it and both you and your website visitors will enjoy much better loading speeds.

Memcached in VPS Servers

You will get Memcached with each of the VPS server packages offered by us when you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to activate the memory caching platform through the section with the exact same name. The setup takes a couple of clicks of the mouse and you will detect the difference in the performance of your websites almost instantaneously. The amount of memory that Memcached can employ to store information depends on the given VPS plan that you have selected, but at any rate it will not be less than several hundred megabytes, which is quite enough even for multiple large Internet sites. You can use the Memcached platform with websites based on Joomla, WordPress or any other Internet app and reduce the load on your virtual machine, which will enable you to keep using the current VPS plan rather than moving to a more powerful one, since you simply won’t need it. Memcached is already being used by famous websites like Zynga, Reddit and Wikipedia, which verifies its effectiveness.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

You can make use of the full potential of Memcached with each and every dedicated server that we’re offering in case you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. A special Control Panel section is dedicated to the distributed memory object caching system and you can begin using Memcached for any site hosted on the machine with only a couple of clicks. You can boost the performance of any website, no matter what script-powered app you rely on or how popular the site is, as the minimum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to employ is 3 GB and this amount increases considerably with the more powerful dedicated servers. Shortly after the caching system is enabled, it will start caching info anytime someone accesses your site, so, as soon as sufficient info has been cached, you’ll see the reduced load on your dedicated server and the enhanced performance of the Internet site. Memcached is being used by plenty of websites, among them famous portals like Wikipedia, Zynga and Reddit, which is an evidence of the effectiveness of the Memcached caching system.
