Memcached is a distributed memory caching platform, which is used to boost the speed of database-driven websites by caching the queries and the responses between the user and the server. In simple terms, every time a specific page on such a site is opened, the script sends a query to its database to get the info that should be shown to the website visitor. If the latter clicks a link to visit another web page, the entire operation is repeated and this results in lots of database requests and high load on the server, particularly if the website has a lot of concurrent visitors. Memcached "memorizes" this exchange of information, so in case any of these pages is accessed again, the script no longer has to request any information from the database, as everything is delivered by the caching platform. In this way, the overall loading speed of your website will increase and you’ll get more happy visitors and they will be able to browse your site much faster. Furthermore, the Memcached platform updates its cache when any data in the database is updated, so the users will never end up seeing outdated content.

Memcached in Web Hosting

You can make use of the Memcached distributed memory object caching system with all web hosting offered by us. It’s available as an optional upgrade, which you can get with just a couple of mouse clicks through your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. It needs an extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud platform, so you can begin using the Memcached caching system the moment you order it. The upgrade is divided into two parts, which will offer you more flexibility depending on the Internet sites that you’d like to use it for. The first part specifies the number of the Internet sites that will use the Memcached caching system, or the ‘instances’, while the second one refers to the system memory, in other words – to how much content the system will be able to cache. You can add more memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you have added, the more data will be cached, which may be a good idea for heavy-traffic websites with large databases and lots of concurrent visitors. In this way, you can increase the performance of any script-based Internet site hosted on our cloud servers without effort.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can add the Memcached distributed memory caching platform to any of the semi-dedicated hosting packages offered by our company and make use of its full potential for any script-driven website hosted on our servers. The upgrade is available through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can choose two features – the number of instances and the system memory. These things define the number of the sites that can use the Memcached platform and the amount of memory that it will use to store your content. You can select them independently, since one instance is not tied to a particular amount of memory, so you can use a lot of memory for one resource-hungry site, for instance. This feature is available in increments of 16 MB and you can get as much memory as you want. The Memcached platform can be used with any script-powered website irrespective of its type, including those that are based on widely used apps like Drupal, Joomla or WordPress, and many companies such as Zynga and Wikipedia are already using it to improve the performance of their websites.

Memcached in VPS Web Hosting

If you order a virtual private server from us, you’ll be able to use Memcached at no additional cost, as the distributed memory object caching platform is offered with all virtual machines that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Even if you manage busy Internet sites, you can enhance their overall performance without any effort and the reduced load on the virtual machine will allow you to keep your current VPS hosting package rather than upgrading to a more powerful one. The amount of system memory that Memcached can use to cache data depends on the plan that you are using, but even with a less powerful one, you will get no less than 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 serious. You can take advantage of Memcached with any database-driven app, regardless of whether you have built it on your own or you are using a ready-made one like WordPress, Joomla or OpenCart.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Each dedicated server that is ordered with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel comes with Memcached already installed by default, so you can begin using the object caching system once the server is fully ready, without the need to upgrade or install anything. The amount of system memory that Memcached can use depends on the very server that you’ve picked, but as our servers are truly powerful and due to the fact that it’s likely that you will host resource-heavy websites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the caching system can use will be three gigabytes. This will permit you to enhance the overall performance of extremely popular Internet sites without effort and you will note the difference shortly after the Memcached caching system begins caching database queries. You can make use of the system with any database-powered site, including those based on famous Content Management Systems like WordPress and Joomla.
