Memcached is a content caching system, which is used to accelerate the load speed of database-driven sites by caching the requests and the replies between the visitor and the server. To put it differently, every time a given web page on such a website is visited, the script connects to its database to fetch the info that should be shown to the website visitor. If the latter clicks on a hyperlink to go to a different web page, the entire procedure is executed again and this leads to numerous database calls and high load on the server, even more so if the site has a lot of simultaneous visitors. Memcached "memorizes" this information exchange, so in case any of these pages is requested again, the script no longer has to call any data from the database, since everything is delivered by the Memcached platform. In this way, the overall speed of your site will increase and you will get more gratified visitors and they’ll be able to surf through your website faster. Additionally, the Memcached platform "refreshes" its cache if any information in the database is updated, so the website users will never end up seeing out-of-date data.

Memcached in Web Hosting

You can take advantage of the Memcached data caching system with all Linux web hosting services offered by us. It’s available as an upgrade, which you can get with just a few clicks through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It needs an extension, which is already installed on our cloud platform, so you can begin using Memcached the moment you order it. The upgrade is divided into two parts, which will give you more versatility depending on the Internet sites that you wish to use it for. The first one determines the number of the websites that will use the Memcached caching system, or the ‘instances’, whereas the second one refers to the system memory, i.e. to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can order more system memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you have, the more content will be cached, which may be a very good idea for heavy-traffic sites with very large databases and a lot of users. Thus, you can boost the performance of every script-based website hosted on our servers with no effort.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can add the Memcached caching platform to any of the semi-dedicated services that we are offering and make use of its full potential for any script-driven Internet site hosted on our servers. The upgrade is available through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can choose two things – the number of instances and the amount of system memory. These things define the number of the sites that can use Memcached and the amount of memory that it will use to cache your information. You can select them separately, since a given instance is not bound to a specific amount of memory, so you can use plenty of memory for one traffic-hungry site, for example. This feature is available in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order as much memory as you like. The Memcached platform can be used with any script-driven website regardless of its nature, including those based on widespread software apps like WordPress, Joomla or Drupal, and plenty of companies such as Zynga and Wikipedia are already using it to increase the loading speed of their sites.

Memcached in VPS Web Hosting

You will get Memcached with each of the virtual private server plans that we are offering when you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to activate the object caching platform through the section with the very same name. The setup takes several clicks and you’ll detect the difference in the performance of your Internet sites almost instantaneously. The amount of memory that the Memcached caching platform can use to store info depends on the given Virtual Private Server hosting package that you’ve chosen, but in any case it won’t be less than several hundred MB, which is more than enough even for multiple popular sites. You can use the Memcached platform with websites powered by WordPress, Joomla or any other web application and reduce the load on your server, which will permit you to keep using the current Virtual Private Server package rather than upgrading to a more powerful one, as you will simply not need it. The Memcached platform is already being used by popular websites such as Wikipedia, Reddit and Zynga, which is a proof of its effectiveness.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting

If you purchase any of our Linux dedicated servers hosting and if you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel at signup, you will get the Memcached distributed memory object caching platform as standard and you can set it up for any website that you host on the dedicated machine without upgrading or installing anything. It will begin storing information as people visit your Internet site, so you’ll detect the result of using it shortly after that. The minimum amount of memory that will be available to the platform is 3 GB and naturally, the more powerful the dedicate server plan, the more memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will permit you to use the caching platform for a large number of websites or for an extremely busy website without compromising its efficacy. The Memcached caching platform will enable you to improve the speed of any database-driven site very quickly – a Joomla portal, a WordPress online journal, an OpenCart store, etcetera, and to enhance the performance of your dedicated machine.
