Memcached is an object caching platform, which is used to accelerate the load speed of database-driven sites by caching the requests and the replies between the website visitor and the server. To put it differently, every time a given web page on such a website is visited, the script queries its database to fetch the information that should be displayed to the website visitor. In case the latter clicks on a link to visit a different web page, the entire operation is executed again and this leads to a lot of database queries and higher server load, especially if the website has lots of concurrent visitors. Memcached "memorizes" this information exchange, so in case any of these pages is opened again, the script no longer has to fetch any info from the database, since everything is provided by the caching platform. In this way, the overall speed of your site will "soar" and you will have more satisfied visitors and they’ll be able to browse your website much faster. Also, the Memcached platform updates its cache every time any content in the database is edited, so the visitors will never wind up seeing outdated data.

Memcached in Web Hosting

If you host script-driven websites in a web hosting account with our company, you will be able to add the Memcached distributed memory object caching system to your shared hosting package with just a few mouse clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantly and, since the necessary extension is already installed on our leading-edge cloud platform, you can begin using it straight away. To give you more flexibility, we offer two separate upgrades related to the number of instances (i.e. how many sites will use Memcached) and to the system memory that the Memcached caching system will use. The latter is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order memory whenever you wish. Logically, the more memory the Memcached caching system is allowed to use, the more data it will cache, so in case you manage a regularly visited website with a lot of data, you may require more memory so as to be able to take advantage of the power that Memcached can offer you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you purchase one of our semi-dedicated server plans, you will find Memcached as an optional upgrade in the Upgrades part of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so if you would like to use it for any of the websites hosted in the account, you can add it with just a few mouse clicks. The caching platform is ideal for any script-powered web application such as WordPress, Joomla, or even a custom one, and based on your needs, you will be able to select two separate features – how many websites will use the Memcached caching platform, in other words – the number of instances; and how much information will be cached, i.e. the amount of system memory that the platform will employ. The two things are not bound to each other, so if you have a traffic-consuming website with lots of content, you can get one instance and a large amount of system memory. The Memcached platform will boost the performance of your websites soon after you activate it and both you and your website visitors will enjoy much better load speeds.

Memcached in VPS

You will get Memcached with any of the virtual private server plans offered by us if you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to activate the data caching platform via the Control Panel section with the same name. The setup requires a few mouse clicks and you will see the difference in the performance of your Internet sites almost instantaneously. The amount of system memory that the Memcached platform can employ to store content depends on the particular Virtual Private Server package that you’ve chosen, but in any case it won’t be less than several hundred megabytes, which is quite enough even for multiple resource-hungry sites. You can use the Memcached platform with Internet sites based on Joomla, WordPress or any other software app and reduce the load on your VPS, which will enable you to continue using the current VPS plan rather than migrating to a more powerful one, since you simply won’t need it. The Memcached platform is already being used by famous websites like Reddit, Zynga and Wikipedia, which demonstrates its efficiency.

Memcached in Dedicated Hosting

You can unlock the full potential of Memcached with every dedicated server offered by our company if you pick 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 just a few clicks of the mouse. You can boost the performance of any Internet site, no matter what script-powered software app you are using or how large the site is, as the minimum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to employ is 3 GB and this amount rises considerably with the more powerful dedicated servers. Shortly after the caching system is activated, it will begin caching data anytime somebody opens your website, so, as soon as sufficient content has been stored, you’ll see the reduced load on your dedicated machine and the enhanced performance of the website. Memcached is used by many websites, among them famous portals like Zynga, Wikipedia and Reddit, which is an evidence of the efficiency of the caching system.
