Memcached is a caching platform, which is used to enhance the load speed of database-powered Internet sites by caching the queries and the replies between the visitor and the server. Simply put, anytime a particular page on such a website is opened, the script calls its database to request the information that should be shown to the visitor. In case the latter clicks a hyperlink to open a different web page, the entire process is repeated and this results in lots of database calls and high server load, even more so if the site has a lot of concurrent visitors. Memcached "remembers" this exchange of information, so if any of these pages is accessed again, the script no longer has to extract any content from the database, since everything is delivered by the Memcached platform. In this way, the overall loading speed of your site will "soar" and you will get more satisfied visitors and they will be able to surf through your site faster. Besides, the Memcached platform updates its cache when any information in the database is edited, so the users will never wind up seeing outdated content.

Memcached in Shared Hosting

Memcached is available as an upgrade with each and every shared hosting package that we offer and in case you want to use it for any script-driven website that you host on our cutting-edge cloud platform, you’ll be able to order it in a few easy steps through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. During the process, you will be offered the option to upgrade two separate features – the instances and the system memory. The first one refers to the number of the Internet sites that can use the Memcached caching system at the same time, so if you need it for several websites, you can order a number of instances. The second one has to do with the total amount of memory that the system will be permitted to use to cache content, so for lots of sites (or for one resource-hungry site), you should get more memory for improved performance. The memory comes in increments of 16 MB and more memory can be added at any point. With Memcached, each script-based Internet site hosted on our servers will open amazingly fast.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can get the Memcached caching system as an optional upgrade with each of our semi-dedicated hosting plans and since it works with any script-driven software application, you can use it for every Internet site that you host on our servers, regardless of what app you have used – WordPress, Mambo or Joomla, a custom one, etc. You can request the upgrade via the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel from which you manage your semi-dedicated server account, and you can choose two different features – the instances and the amount of system memory that they will use. To put it in simple terms, these things specify how many Internet sites will use the Memcached caching system and the amount of memory that the system will be able to use in order to store your information. The two things are offered independently for more freedom and one instance does not come bundled with a pre-defined amount of memory. You can make use of Memcached with any sort of website and both you and the visitors will swiftly notice the difference in the performance.

Memcached in VPS Servers

Even if you’ve got data-heavy sites, you will be able to accelerate their overall performance effortlessly and the reduced load on the virtual server will permit you to continue using your current VPS package rather than switching to a more powerful one. The amount of memory that the Memcached caching platform can use to cache info depends on the plan that you’re using, but even with a lower-end one, you’ll have at least several hundred MB, which is significantly more than the amount of memory you’d get with a shared package, so the website performance boost will be incredible. You can take advantage of the Memcached platform with any database-driven web application, irrespective of whether you have written it yourself or you’re using a ready-to-use one like Joomla, OpenCart or WordPress.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

A special Control Panel section is dedicated to the memory caching system and you can begin using Memcached for any Internet site hosted on the dedicated machine with only several mouse clicks. You can improve the performance of any website, regardless of what script-based software application you are using or how busy the Internet site is, since the minimum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to use is 3 gigabytes and this amount increases enormously with the higher-end dedicated servers. Soon after the system is activated, it will begin caching info anytime someone opens your website, so, as soon as sufficient content has been stored, you’ll notice the decreased load on the server and the enhanced performance of the Internet site. The Memcached caching system is used by lots of websites, including famous portals like Reddit, Wikipedia and Zynga, which verifies the effectiveness of the Memcached system.
