Memcached is a data caching system, which is used to supercharge the load speed of database-powered sites by caching the queries and the replies between the visitor and the server. To put it in simple terms, every time a given web page on such a site is visited, the script sends a database query to get the info that should be shown to the visitor. In case the latter clicks a hyperlink to open another page, the entire process is performed again and this results in numerous database calls and higher server load, even more so if the site has lots of concurrent visitors. Memcached "remembers" this exchange of information, so in case any of these web pages is requested again, the script no longer needs to request any information from the database, as everything is delivered by the Memcached platform. In this way, the overall speed of your site will increase and you will get more happy visitors and they’ll be able to navigate through your site much faster. At the same time, the Memcached platform "refreshes" its cache when any information in the database is modified, so the website users will never end up seeing out-of-date data.

Memcached in Cloud Web Hosting

Memcached comes as an upgrade with each and every cloud web hosting package offered by us and if you would like to use it for any script-based website that you host on our innovative cloud web hosting platform, you will be able to activate it in several simple steps via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. In the meantime, you will get the option to upgrade two separate things – the instances and the system memory. The first one refers to the number of the websites that can use the Memcached object caching system at the same time, so if you need it for several sites, you can order a number of instances. The second one refers to the total amount of memory that Memcached will be permitted to use in order to cache info, so for multiple sites (or for one single large site), you should get more memory for improved performance. The memory is offered in increments of 16 MB and more memory can be added at any moment. With Memcached, every script-driven Internet site hosted on our cloud servers will load faster than the speed of light.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can get Memcached as an upgrade with each of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting services and since it works with any script-driven software app, you can use it for each site that you host on our servers, regardless of what application you have used – Joomla, Mambo or WordPress, a custom-built one, etc. You can order the upgrade from the respective section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel from which you manage your semi-dedicated account, and you can choose two different features – the instances and the amount of system memory that they will use. In other words, these things determine how many websites will use Memcached and the total amount of system memory that the system will be able to use in order to cache 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 the most of Memcached with any kind of website and both you and your website visitors will quickly detect the difference in the performance.

Memcached in VPS

Memcached is offered by default with each and every virtual private server that we offer on the condition that you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel, so you will not have to pay anything extra to be able to use the potential of this caching system. The more powerful Virtual Private Server package you choose, the more system memory Memcached will have for data storage purposes, but you’ll have at least several hundred megabytes all the time, which is much more than the amount of memory you would get with a shared package. This will enable you to use the Memcached system for numerous Internet sites, regardless of how heavy they are, which in turn goes to say that you can use a low-end package for them without overloading the virtual machine. The caching system is ideal for script-based applications such as Joomla, WordPress, OpenCart or Mambo, and you can utilize it even with a custom-built app. Soon after you activate the Memcached system, it will begin storing content and you will distinguish the optimized overall performance of your sites.

Memcached in Dedicated Hosting

You can take advantage of the full potential of Memcached with every dedicated server offered by us in case you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel. A special Control Panel section is dedicated to the object caching system and you can begin using Memcached for any Internet site hosted on the dedicated machine with only a few clicks of the mouse. You can improve the overall performance of any Internet site, irrespective of what script-based web app you are using or how large the site is, since the minimum amount of system memory that Memcached will be able to use is 3 gigabytes and this amount rises seriously with the higher-end dedicated servers. Soon after the system is enabled, it will begin caching info every time somebody accesses your website, so, as soon as enough data has been stored, you’ll distinguish the lowered load on the server and the optimized overall performance of the Internet site. The Memcached system is being used by lots of sites, among them popular portals like Wikipedia, Zynga and Reddit, which is a proof of the efficiency of the caching system.
