Memcached is a memory caching platform, which is used to accelerate the load speed of database-driven sites by caching the queries and the responses between the user and the server. In simple terms, every time a particular page on such a website is requested, the script calls its database to fetch the information that should be displayed to the visitor. In case the latter clicks a link to go to another page, the entire process is executed again and this generates a lot of database requests and high server load, particularly if the site has lots of simultaneous visitors. Memcached "memorizes" this exchange of information, so in case any of these pages is requested again, the script no longer has to cull any data from the database, since everything is delivered by the caching platform. In this way, the overall load speed of your site will "soar" and you’ll get more satisfied visitors and they’ll be able to browse your website much faster. Plus, Memcached "refreshes" its cache every time any data in the database is altered, so the website visitors will never wind up seeing old content.

Memcached in Web Hosting

When you host script-powered websites in a web hosting account with our company, you can add the Memcached data caching system to your hosting plan with just a couple of clicks of the mouse from your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available momentarily and, since the required extension is pre-installed on our innovative cloud 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 websites will use Memcached) and to the memory that the Memcached caching system will use. The latter is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and you can add memory whenever you need. Logically, the more memory the Memcached caching system is permitted to use, the more data it will cache, so in case you own a resource-absorbing website with lots of content, you may need more memory in order to be able to take advantage of the power that Memcached can give you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you acquire any of our semi-dedicated server plans, you will find Memcached as an optional feature in the Upgrades part of the Hepsia Control Panel, so if you would like to use it for any of the sites hosted in your account, you can add it with just a few clicks of the mouse. The content caching platform is perfect for any script-powered application such as Joomla, WordPress, or even an in-house made app, and depending on your necessities, you’ll be able to choose two separate features – how many websites will use the Memcached caching platform, in other words – the number of instances; and how much content will be cached, in other words – the amount of memory that the platform will employ. The two features are not tied to each other, so if you have a traffic-heavy site with lots of data, you can get one instance and a large amount of memory. The Memcached platform will accelerate the performance of your Internet sites soon after you enable it and both you and your website visitors will enjoy much faster load speeds.

Memcached in VPS Servers

You will get Memcached with each of the VPS server plans that we are offering when you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel and you will be able to activate the content caching platform through the section with the very same name. The setup takes a couple of mouse clicks and you’ll distinguish the difference in the overall performance of your Internet sites almost momentarily. The amount of memory that the Memcached caching platform can employ to store data depends on the particular Virtual Private Server hosting package that you’ve selected, but in any case it will not be less than several hundred MB, which is quite enough even for multiple resource-hungry Internet sites. You can use the Memcached platform with Internet sites based on Joomla, WordPress or any other application and decrease the load on your VPS, which will enable you to keep using the current VPS hosting plan instead of moving to a more powerful one, as you simply won’t need it. Memcached is already being used by popular websites like Reddit, Zynga and Wikipedia, which confirms its efficiency.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

You can make use of the full potential of Memcached with each and every dedicated server that we are offering if you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. A section in it is dedicated to the content caching system and you can begin using Memcached for any site hosted on the dedicated machine with just several mouse clicks. You can increase the performance of any website, regardless of what script-powered software app you rely on or how large the site is, as the minimum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to employ is three gigabytes and this amount increases immensely with the higher-end servers. Soon after the caching system is activated, it will begin caching content every time somebody visits your site, so, once enough information has been cached, you will distinguish the lowered load and the enhanced performance of your site. The Memcached system is used by a lot of websites, including famous portals such as Wikipedia, Zynga and Reddit, which is a proof of the effectiveness of the Memcached caching system.
