Memcached is a content caching system, which is used to increase the overall performance of database-driven sites by caching the queries and the replies between the user and the server. To put it simply, every time a given web page on such a site is visited, the script connects to its database to get the information that should be displayed to the website visitor. If the latter clicks on a link to open some other page, the entire operation is executed again and this leads to plenty of database requests and excessive load on the server, even more so if the site has a lot of concurrent visitors. Memcached "remembers" this exchange of information, so in case any of these web pages is opened again, the script no longer needs to cull any information from the database, as everything is delivered by the caching platform. Thus, the overall loading speed of your website will "soar" and you will get more gratified visitors and they’ll be able to browse your website much faster. Furthermore, Memcached updates its cache whenever any content in the database is modified, so the website visitors will never wind up seeing outdated content.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

Memcached is available as an optional upgrade with each cloud hosting plan offered by us and in case you’d like to use it for any script-powered Internet site that you host on our avant-garde cloud platform, you will be able to activate it in a few simple steps via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. In the meantime, you will be offered the option to upgrade two different features – the instances and the memory. The first one has to do with the number of the sites that can use the Memcached object caching system at the same time, so if you need it for several websites, you can get a handful of instances. The second one refers to the total amount of memory that the system will be able to use to cache information, so for numerous websites (or for one single popular site), you should get more memory for better results. The memory is offered in increments of 16 MB and more memory can be added at any time. With Memcached, any script-based site hosted on our servers will open unbelievably fast.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you obtain one of our semi-dedicated server plans, you’ll find Memcached as an optional upgrade in the Upgrades section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so if you’d like to use it for any of the sites hosted in the semi-dedicated server hosting account, you can enable it with just a few clicks of the mouse. The object caching platform is ideal for any script-driven software application like WordPress, Joomla, or even a custom-built app, and depending on your needs, you will be able to select two separate things – how many Internet sites will use the Memcached caching platform, in other words – the number of instances; and how much info will be stored, i.e. the amount of system memory that the platform will use. The two things are not tied to each other, so if you manage a popular Internet site with a lot of content, you can order one instance and a larger amount of memory. The Memcached caching platform will enhance the performance of your websites shortly after you activate it and both you and your visitors will enjoy faster loading speeds.

Memcached in VPS Servers

You will get Memcached with any of the VPS server plans that we’re offering in case you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to activate the caching platform through the Control Panel section with the exact same name. The activation requires several clicks of the mouse and you’ll notice the difference in the overall performance of your websites almost immediately. The amount of system memory that the Memcached platform can use to store information depends on the given VPS package that you have chosen, but at any rate it will be at least several hundred MB, which is quite enough even for several resource-consuming websites. You can use Memcached with websites based on Joomla, WordPress or any other web app and reduce the load on your VPS server, which will allow you to continue using the current Virtual Private Server hosting package rather than switching to a more powerful one, as you will simply not need it. The Memcached platform is already being used by famous websites such as Reddit, Zynga and Wikipedia, which proves its efficiency.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

You can take advantage of the full potential of Memcached with each and every dedicated server that we are offering if you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. A special section in it is dedicated to the memory caching system and you can start using Memcached for any site hosted on the server with just a couple of clicks. You can enhance the overall performance of any site, regardless of what script-based application you are using or how heavy the site is, as the minimum amount of system memory that Memcached will be able to employ is three gigabytes and this amount rises tremendously with the more powerful servers. Shortly after the system is enabled, it will start caching info anytime somebody visits your site, so, once sufficient info has been stored, you’ll distinguish the reduced load on your dedicated machine and the improved overall performance of your Internet site. Memcached is used by many sites, including popular portals such as Zynga, Wikipedia and Reddit, which proves the efficiency of the caching system.
