Memcached is a distributed memory caching platform, which is used to increase the loading speed of database-driven Internet sites by caching the queries and the responses between the website visitor and the server. Simply put, anytime a certain web page on such a site is accessed, the script queries its database to fetch the info that should be shown to the visitor. In case the latter clicks a link to visit another web page, the whole operation is executed again and this leads to multiple database requests and high load on the server, especially if the website has lots of simultaneous visitors. Memcached "memorizes" this information exchange, so if any of these pages is requested again, the script no longer has to fetch any info from the database, since everything is provided by the caching platform. In this way, the overall load speed of your site will "soar" and you will have more pleased visitors and they will be able to navigate through your website faster. Also, the Memcached platform "refreshes" its cache when any info in the database is altered, so the users will never see outdated content.

Memcached in Website Hosting

Memcached is offered as an optional upgrade with each website hosting account offered by our company and if you would like to use it for any script-powered Internet site that you host on our innovative cloud hosting platform, you will be able to order it in a few easy steps through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. During the process, you’ll get the option to upgrade two separate things – the instances and the system memory. The first one refers to the number of the sites that can use the Memcached distributed memory object caching system at the same time, so if you need it for several Internet sites, you can order a number of instances. The second one has to do with the total amount of memory that the system will be allowed to use in order to cache information, so for lots of websites (or for one traffic-consuming site), you’d better order more memory for improved performance. The memory comes in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be added at any moment. With Memcached, any script-based website hosted on our cloud servers will load amazingly fast.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can add the Memcached object caching platform to any of the semi-dedicated servers that we’re offering and use its full capacity for any script-powered site hosted on our servers. The upgrade is accessible through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can choose two features – the instances and the memory. These things determine how many sites can use Memcached and how much memory it will use to cache your content. You can choose them independently, since one instance is not bound to a specific amount of memory, so you can use lots of memory for a single resource-requiring Internet site, for example. This feature is available in increments of 16 MB and you can get as much memory as you want. The platform can be used with any script-driven website irrespective of its type, including those based on widespread Internet applications like Joomla, Drupal or WordPress, and lots of companies like Wikipedia and Zynga are already using it to boost the overall performance of their sites.

Memcached in VPS Servers

When you buy a VPS server from us, you will be able to use Memcached at no additional fee, as the distributed memory caching platform is offered with all virtual machines ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. Even if you’ve got content-loaded sites, you’ll be able to optimize their overall performance without any effort and the decreased load on your VPS will allow you to keep using your current VPS hosting package rather than migrating to a more powerful one. The amount of memory that the Memcached caching platform can use to cache content depends on the package that you’re using, but even with a less powerful one, you will have at least several hundred MB, which is considerably more than the amount of memory you’d get with a shared hosting package, so the website performance boost will be significant. You can use the Memcached platform with any database-driven app, regardless of whether you’ve created it yourself or you’re using a ready-for-use one such as OpenCart, WordPress or Joomla.

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 begin using Memcached for any Internet site hosted on the dedicated machine with only a couple of clicks of the mouse. You can optimize the overall performance of any Internet site, irrespective of what script-based web app you rely on or how popular the website is, as the minimum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to employ is three gigabytes and this amount increases tremendously with the higher-end dedicated servers. Shortly after the system is activated, it will start caching data each time someone opens your site, so, once enough information has been cached, you’ll notice the reduced load and the improved performance of the Internet site. The Memcached caching system is used by numerous websites, including famous portals like Reddit, Zynga and Wikipedia, which is a confirmation of the efficiency of the Memcached system.
