Memcached is a data caching system, which is used to enhance the speed of database-powered sites by caching the queries 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 calls its database to request the information that should be shown to the website visitor. In case the latter clicks a link to go to another web page, the whole procedure is carried out again and this generates numerous database requests and higher server load, particularly if the website has lots of concurrent visitors. Memcached "memorizes" this information exchange, so if any of these web pages is opened again, the script no longer needs to pull any data from the database, since everything is provided by the Memcached platform. In this way, the overall speed of your site will "soar" and you’ll get more gratified visitors and they will be able to navigate through your site much faster. In addition, the Memcached platform updates its cache every time any info in the database is changed, so the visitors will never wind up seeing outdated data.

Memcached in Hosting

Memcached comes as an optional upgrade with each and every hosting plan offered by our company and if you want to use it for any script-driven website that you host on our leading-edge cloud website hosting platform, you’ll be able to enable it in a couple of easy 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 memory. The first one refers to the number of the sites that can use the Memcached data caching system simultaneously, so if you need it for several websites, you can get a handful of instances. The second one refers to the maximum amount of memory that Memcached will be allowed to use to cache data, so for many websites (or for one popular site), you should get more memory for better results. The memory is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be ordered at any point. With the Memcached caching system, any script-powered Internet site hosted on our cloud servers will open unbelievably fast.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can get the Memcached content caching system as an optional upgrade with all our semi-dedicated servers and since it works with any script-driven web application, you can use it for any website that you host on our semi-dedicated servers, regardless of what application you have used – Mambo, WordPress or Joomla, a custom-created application, etc. You can order the upgrade via the respective section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel from which you administer your semi-dedicated server account, and you can select two different features – the number of instances and the amount of system memory that they will use. In simple terms, these things indicate how many sites will use Memcached and the maximum amount of memory that the system will be able to use to store your info. The two things are ordered separately for more freedom and one instance does not come bundled with a fixed amount of system memory. You can make the most of Memcached with any sort of site and both you and your visitors will swiftly note the difference in the overall performance.

Memcached in VPS Servers

You’ll get Memcached with any of the VPS server plans that we offer when you select Hepsia as your Control Panel and you’ll be able to activate the distributed memory object caching platform via the section with the same name. The setup requires a couple of mouse clicks and you will detect the difference in the performance of your Internet sites almost momentarily. The amount of system memory that Memcached can take advantage of to cache info depends on the given Virtual Private Server hosting plan that you’ve picked, but at any rate it will not be less than several hundred megabytes, which is quite enough even for several content-loaded Internet sites. You can use Memcached with Internet sites powered by WordPress, Joomla or any other web app and decrease the load on your VPS, which will enable you to continue using the current Virtual Private Server hosting package rather than migrating to a more powerful one, since you will simply not need it. Memcached is already being used by popular websites like Zynga, Reddit and Wikipedia, which verifies its efficacy.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

You can use the full potential of Memcached with every dedicated server offered by us in case you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel. A special section in it is dedicated to the data caching system and you can begin using Memcached for any Internet site hosted on the machine with only several mouse clicks. You can enhance the performance of any website, regardless of what script-driven web app you rely on or how large the website is, since the minimum amount of system memory that Memcached will be able to employ is three gigabytes and this amount increases significantly with the more powerful servers. Shortly after the caching system is activated, it will begin caching information each time someone browses your site, so, as soon as sufficient information has been cached, you’ll perceive the reduced load on your dedicated server and the improved performance of the site. Memcached is used by numerous sites, including popular portals like Zynga, Reddit and Wikipedia, which is a confirmation of the efficiency of the Memcached system.
