Memcached is an object caching platform, which is used to boost the loading speed of database-powered websites by caching the requests and the replies between the user and the server. In simple terms, every time a particular web page on such a site is opened, the script queries its database to request the info that should be displayed to the website visitor. In case the latter clicks a link to visit another page, the whole operation is carried out again and this generates numerous database queries and higher server load, especially if the website has lots of simultaneous visitors. Memcached "memorizes" this information exchange, so in case any of these web pages is opened again, the script no longer needs to call any data from the database, as everything is delivered by the caching platform. Thus, the overall speed of your website will increase and you will get more pleased visitors and they will be able to navigate through your website faster. Plus, the Memcached platform updates its cache every time any information in the database is modified, so the website users will never see old content.

Memcached in Shared Website Hosting

Memcached is offered as an upgrade with each shared website hosting package offered by us and in case you want to use it for any script-powered Internet site that you host on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform, you’ll be able to order it in a few simple steps through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. During the process, you’ll be offered the option to upgrade two different things – the instances and the system memory. The first one refers to the number of the sites that can use the Memcached content caching system at the same time, so if you need it for several Internet sites, you can get a handful of instances. The second one refers to the total amount of memory that the system will be allowed to use in order to cache information, so for lots of sites (or for one large site), you’d better order more memory for improved performance. The memory is available in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be ordered at any moment. With Memcached, every script-powered Internet site hosted on our servers will open unbelievably fast.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can get the Memcached object caching system as an optional upgrade with all our semi-dedicated plans and since it works with any script-driven app, you can use it for every site that you host on our platform, no matter what application you have used – Joomla, WordPress or Mambo, a custom-built application, etc. You can order the upgrade from the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel from which you manage your semi-dedicated account, and you can choose two different things – the number of instances and the amount of system memory that they will use. To put it simply, these things show the number of the websites that will use the Memcached system and how much system memory the system will be able to use to store your info. The two things are ordered separately for more freedom and one instance does not come bundled with a particular amount of memory. You can make the most of Memcached with any kind of website and both you and the site visitors will quickly detect the difference in the performance.

Memcached in VPS Servers

You will get Memcached with any of the VPS server plans offered by our company if you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel and you’ll be able to activate the distributed memory caching platform via the Control Panel section with the very same name. The configuration takes a few clicks and you’ll distinguish the difference in the performance of your sites almost instantaneously. The amount of system memory that the Memcached platform can take advantage of to store content depends on the given Virtual Private Server package that you’ve chosen, but in any case it will not be less than several hundred megabytes, which is more than enough even for several intense-traffic websites. You can use Memcached with Internet sites based on Joomla, WordPress or any other application and lower the load on your server, which will permit you to keep using the current VPS hosting plan instead of moving to a more powerful one, since you will simply not need it. The Memcached platform is already being used by famous websites like Reddit, Wikipedia and Zynga, which demonstrates its effectiveness.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

Memcached comes free of charge with all dedicated web hosting plans offered by us and the sole condition is that the dedicated machine must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can use the memory caching system for any database-powered Internet site, including those based on famous software applications – for instance, a WordPress online diary or a Joomla-powered community site. Each dedicated machine comes with a certain amount of memory that the Memcached system can employ, but the minimum amount you will get is 3 GB, which is quite enough to enhance the speed of very large websites immensely, since this very memory will be dedicated to storing the cached content. The system will begin storing data the moment it is activated, so shortly thereafter, you’ll detect the improved performance of your Internet sites and the lowered load on your dedicated machine. Plenty of websites use the Memcached system to increase their efficiency, including famous ones like Wikipedia and Reddit.
