Memcached is a content caching system, which is used to improve the overall performance of database-driven websites by caching the calls and the responses between the user and the server. To put it differently, anytime a given web page on such a site is opened, the script sends a database query to request the info that should be shown to the website visitor. If the latter clicks on a hyperlink to go to a different page, the entire procedure is performed again and this leads to lots of database queries and higher server load, particularly if the website has lots of concurrent visitors. Memcached "memorizes" this information exchange, so in case any of these pages is visited again, the script no longer has to call any info from the database, as everything is delivered by the caching platform. Thus, the overall speed of your website will "soar" and you will have more pleased visitors and they’ll be able to surf through your website faster. Moreover, Memcached "refreshes" its cache when any info in the database is updated, so the users will never end up seeing old data.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

Memcached is available as an optional upgrade with each and every cloud hosting plan offered by us and in case you’d like to use it for any script-based website that you host on our leading-edge cloud platform, you will be able to enable it in several easy steps through your Hepsia Control Panel. During the process, you will be given the option to upgrade two different things – the number of instances and the memory. The first one has to do with the number of the sites that can use the Memcached caching system simultaneously, so if you need it for several sites, you can get a handful of instances. The second one has to do with the maximum amount of memory that Memcached will be permitted to use in order to cache info, so for plenty of sites (or for one busy site), you should get more memory for better results. The memory is available in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be ordered at any point. With Memcached, each script-based site hosted on our cloud servers will load lightning-fast.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can get Memcached as an upgrade with each of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting and since it works with any script-based app, you can use it for every website that you host on our semi-dedicated servers, regardless of what app you have used – Joomla, WordPress or Mambo, a custom application, etc. You can order the upgrade via the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel from which you manage your semi-dedicated account, and you can select two separate things – the number of instances and the amount of system memory that they will use. To put it in simple terms, these things determine how many Internet sites will use the Memcached caching system and the maximum amount of memory that the system will be able to use in order to cache your information. The two things are offered separately for more freedom and one instance does not come with a fixed amount of memory. You can take full advantage of Memcached with any sort of site and both you and the visitors will swiftly perceive the difference in the performance.

Memcached in VPS Hosting

You will get Memcached with each of the virtual private server packages offered by our company if you select Hepsia as your Control Panel and you will be able to activate the caching platform via the section with the same name. The activation requires a couple of clicks and you will distinguish the difference in the overall performance of your sites almost momentarily. The amount of memory that the Memcached caching platform can take advantage of to store information depends on the given VPS plan that you have selected, but in any case it won’t be less than several hundred MB, which is quite enough even for several high-demand websites. You can use the Memcached platform with Internet sites driven by Joomla, WordPress or any other software app and decrease the load on your virtual server, which will allow you to continue using the current package instead of switching to a more powerful one, since you will simply not need it. Memcached is already being used by popular websites like Reddit, Wikipedia and Zynga, which demonstrates its effectiveness.

Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting

You can use the full potential of Memcached with each and every dedicated server that we’re offering if you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. A section in it is dedicated to the data caching system and you can start using Memcached for any website hosted on the server with just a couple of clicks. You can boost the performance of any Internet site, regardless of what script-based software application you are using or how heavy the site is, as the minimum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to employ is 3 GB and this amount increases seriously with the higher-end servers. Soon after the caching system is enabled, it will start caching content each time somebody opens your website, so, once sufficient data has been cached, you will notice the decreased server load and the improved overall performance of the Internet site. Memcached is used by a lot of websites, among them popular portals such as Reddit, Wikipedia and Zynga, which proves the effectiveness of the Memcached system.
