Memcached is a distributed memory object caching platform, which is used to supercharge the performance of database-powered Internet sites by caching the requests and the responses between the visitor and the server. To put it differently, every time a specific web page on such a website is opened, the script calls its database to get the info that should be shown to the visitor. In case the latter clicks on a hyperlink to go to a different page, the entire procedure is performed again and this leads to numerous database calls and higher load on the server, even more so if the site has a lot of simultaneous visitors. Memcached "memorizes" this information exchange, so if any of these pages is accessed again, the script no longer has to fetch any data from the database, as everything is delivered by the Memcached platform. In this way, the overall loading speed of your website will "soar" and you’ll have more satisfied visitors and they will be able to navigate through your site faster. Furthermore, Memcached "refreshes" its cache when any info in the database is modified, so the website visitors will never end up seeing old data.

Memcached in Web Hosting

Memcached is available as an upgrade with each web hosting plan offered by our company and in case you wish to use it for any script-based website that you host on our innovative cloud hosting platform, you will be able to activate it in several simple steps via your Hepsia Control Panel. During the process, you’ll get the option to upgrade two separate features – the number of instances and the system memory. The first one refers to the number of the Internet sites that can use the Memcached distributed memory object caching system simultaneously, so if you need it for several sites, you can order a handful of instances. The second one has to do with the maximum amount of memory that Memcached will be allowed to use in order to cache info, so for lots of websites (or for one single traffic-consuming site), you’d better get more memory for improved performance. The memory is available in increments of 16 MB and more memory can be ordered at any moment. With Memcached, each script-based website hosted on our servers will load blazing-fast.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can get the Memcached distributed memory object caching system as an upgrade with all our Linux semi-dedicated hosting and since it works with any script-based software application, you can use it for any site that you host on our servers, no matter what app you have used – Mambo, Joomla or WordPress, a custom-built one, etc. You can add the upgrade from the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel from which you administer your semi-dedicated account, and you can choose two separate features – the instances and the amount of memory that they will use. In simple terms, these things determine how many sites will use the Memcached system and how much memory the system will be able to use in order to store your info. The two features are offered separately for more freedom and one instance does not come with a fixed amount of memory. You can make use of the Memcached system with any type of site and both you and the visitors will swiftly notice the difference in the overall performance.

Memcached in VPS Web Hosting

Memcached is offered by default with each and every virtual private server that we offer as long as you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel, so you will not have to pay anything extra to be able to make the most of the maximum capacity of this memory caching system. The more powerful VPS hosting plan you choose, the more system memory Memcached will have for data storage purposes, but you will have no less than several hundred megabytes all the time, which is much more than what you would get with a shared hosting plan. This will permit you to use the Memcached system for multiple Internet sites, regardless of how heavy they are, which in turn goes to say that you can use a less powerful package for them without overloading your virtual server. The Memcached caching system is ideal for script-based applications such as WordPress, Joomla, OpenCart or Mambo, and you can use it even with a custom-created app. Soon after you activate the Memcached system, it will start storing info and you’ll note the improved overall performance of your sites.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Memcached is available for free with all Linux dedicated servers hosting offered by our company and the sole requirement is that the dedicated server must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can use the object caching system for any database-driven Internet site, including those that are based on widely used web applications – for example, a WordPress online journal or a Joomla-powered community portal. Each dedicated server comes with a specific amount of memory that the Memcached caching system can use, but the minimum amount you’ll get is 3 gigabytes, which is quite enough to boost the load speed of very busy websites considerably, since this very memory will be dedicated to storing the cached information. The system will begin storing information once it’s enabled, so shortly thereafter, you’ll detect the optimized overall performance of your sites and the lowered load on your dedicated server. Plenty of Internet sites use the Memcached system to enhance their effectiveness, among them popular ones such as Reddit and Wikipedia.
