Memcached is a memory caching platform, which is used to accelerate the performance of database-driven Internet sites by caching the queries and the replies between the visitor and the server. To put it differently, every time a particular page on such a site is visited, the script sends a database query to request the information that should be displayed to the website visitor. In case the latter clicks a link to open another web page, the entire process is repeated and this leads to lots of database queries and excessive server load, particularly if the website has a lot of concurrent visitors. Memcached "remembers" this information exchange, so in case any of these pages is accessed again, the script no longer needs to cull any information from the database, since everything is delivered by the Memcached platform. Thus, the overall speed of your website will increase and you’ll have more satisfied visitors and they’ll be able to navigate through your website much faster. What’s more, the Memcached platform "refreshes" its cache every time any data in the database is updated, so the website visitors will never end up seeing old data.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

Memcached comes as an optional upgrade with each cloud hosting package that we’re offering and if you wish to use it for any script-powered site that you host on our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform, you’ll be able to order it in a few easy steps via your Hepsia Control Panel. During the process, you’ll get the option to upgrade two different features – the number of instances and the system memory. The first one has to do with the number of the sites that can use the Memcached data 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 refers to the maximum amount of memory that Memcached will be allowed to use to cache data, so for plenty of websites (or for one single resource-demanding site), you’d better order more memory for improved performance. The memory comes in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be added every time you need it. With Memcached, every script-powered site hosted on our servers will load amazingly fast.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you order one of our semi-dedicated server plans, you’ll find Memcached as an optional feature in the Upgrades part of the Hepsia Control Panel, so if you would like to use it for any of the sites hosted in your semi-dedicated server hosting account, you can add it with only a couple of clicks of the mouse. The distributed memory caching platform is ideal for any script-powered application such as WordPress, Joomla, or even a custom-developed app, and based on your necessities, you will be able to choose two different things – how many websites will use Memcached, in other words – the number of instances; and how much data will be cached, in other words – the amount of memory that the platform will use. The two things are not tied to each other, so if you manage a regularly visited website with a lot of data, you can order one instance and a larger amount of memory. Memcached will increase the overall performance of your Internet sites soon after you enable it and both you and your site visitors will enjoy much better loading times.

Memcached in VPS Servers

Memcached comes by default with every VPS server that we’re offering provided that you select Hepsia as your Control Panel, so you will not need to pay any extra cash to be able to make the most of the power of this data caching system. The more powerful VPS plan you choose, the more memory Memcached will have for data caching purposes, but you will have no less than several hundred megabytes at all times, which is much more than what you would get with a shared web hosting package. This will allow you to use the Memcached system for lots of websites, regardless of how large they are, which in turn goes to say that you can use a less powerful plan for them without overloading the virtual server. The Memcached caching system is suitable for script-driven software applications like WordPress, Joomla, OpenCart or Mambo, and you can utilize it even with a custom-created app. Shortly after you enable the Memcached caching system, it will begin storing content and you will observe the optimized performance of your sites.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

You can unlock the full potential of Memcached with each dedicated server offered by us in case you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel. A section in it is dedicated to the object caching system and you can start using Memcached for any website hosted on the server with only several mouse clicks. You can enhance the overall performance of any website, regardless of what script-based web application you are using or how large the Internet site is, as the minimum amount of system memory that Memcached will be able to employ is 3 GB and this amount increases tremendously with the more powerful dedicated servers. Soon after the system is enabled, it will begin caching info anytime someone visits your website, so, once enough data has been stored, you will distinguish the decreased load on the dedicated machine and the improved performance of your site. The Memcached caching system is being used by many websites, among them famous portals such as Reddit, Wikipedia and Zynga, which verifies the effectiveness of the caching system.
