Memcached is a content caching system, which is used to supercharge the speed of database-driven websites by caching the requests and the replies between the website visitor and the server. To put it in simple terms, anytime a particular web page on such a site is opened, the script sends a query to its database to get the information that should be displayed to the website visitor. If the latter clicks on a link to open another page, the entire procedure is repeated and this generates multiple database calls and excessive load on the server, even more so if the site has a lot of concurrent visitors. Memcached "remembers" this information exchange, so in case any of these pages is opened again, the script no longer needs to pull any information from the database, as everything is provided by the caching platform. Thus, the overall load speed of your site will "soar" and you will enjoy more gratified visitors and they will be able to surf through your website much faster. What’s more, Memcached "refreshes" its cache when any content in the database is modified, so the users will never see outdated content.

Memcached in Shared Hosting

Memcached is offered as an optional upgrade with each shared hosting package that we’re offering and if you want to use it for any script-driven Internet site that you host on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform, you will be able to order it in a few simple steps via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. During the process, you’ll be offered the option to upgrade two separate things – the instances and the memory. The first one has to do with the number of the sites that can use the Memcached content caching system simultaneously, so if you need it for several Internet sites, you can get a handful of instances. The second one refers to the maximum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to use in order to cache content, so for lots of sites (or for one single traffic-intensive site), you’d better get more memory for better results. The memory comes in increments of 16 MB and more memory can be ordered every time you need it. With Memcached, each script-driven Internet site hosted on our cloud servers will load amazingly fast.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can add the Memcached data caching platform to any of the semi-dedicated hosting services that we are offering and make use of its full potential for any script-driven site hosted by us. The upgrade is accessible through the Hepsia Control Panel and you can select two features – the number of instances and the memory. These things define the number of the sites that can use the Memcached platform and the amount of memory that it will use to cache your information. You can select them independently, since one instance is not linked to a fixed amount of system memory, so you can use plenty of memory for a single resource-consuming site, for instance. This upgrade is offered in increments of 16 MB and you can order as much memory as you wish. The platform can be used with any script-driven website irrespective of its type, including those that are based on popular web-based apps like Joomla, Drupal or WordPress, and plenty of companies such as Wikipedia and Zynga are already using it to accelerate the performance of their websites.

Memcached in VPS Web Hosting

Memcached comes by default with every virtual private server that we offer as long as you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel, so you will not need to pay anything extra to be able to make the most of the maximum potential of this content caching system. The more powerful Virtual Private Server hosting plan you pick, the more memory Memcached will have for information caching purposes, but you’ll have no less than several hundred megabytes at all times, which is much more than what you’d get with a shared web hosting package. This will permit you to use the Memcached system for lots of sites, regardless of how heavy they are, which in turn means that you can use a lower-end package for them without overloading the Virtual Private Server. The caching system is perfect for script-based software applications like OpenCart, Joomla, WordPress or Mambo, and you can use it even with a custom app. Shortly after you activate the Memcached caching system, it will start storing data and you will notice the enhanced overall performance of your websites.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Any dedicated server that’s ordered with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel comes with Memcached already installed by default, so you can begin using this object caching system as soon as the server is set up, without needing to install or upgrade anything. The amount of memory that Memcached can employ depends on the server that you have chosen, but since our servers are incredibly powerful and due to the fact that it’s likely that you’ll host resource-consuming websites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the caching system can use is 3 gigabytes. This will allow you to optimize the performance of extremely large websites with ease and you will observe the difference soon after Memcached begins caching database queries. You can take full advantage of the Memcached system with any database-powered website, including those that are based on famous CMSs like Joomla and WordPress.
