Memcached is a distributed memory caching platform, which is used to increase the performance of database-powered sites by caching the requests and the responses between the user and the server. Put simply, anytime a specific page on such a site is opened, the script calls its database to fetch the information that should be shown to the visitor. If the latter clicks on a hyperlink to go to a different web page, the whole operation is executed again and this generates plenty of database requests and excessive load on the server, particularly if the website has a lot of concurrent visitors. Memcached "memorizes" this information exchange, so if any of these web pages is accessed again, the script no longer has to fetch any content from the database, since everything is delivered by the caching platform. In this way, the overall load speed of your website will "soar" and you will enjoy more pleased visitors and they’ll be able to surf through your website faster. In addition, Memcached updates its cache if any content in the database is altered, so the visitors will never wind up seeing outdated data.

Memcached in Shared Website Hosting

When you host script-powered websites in a shared website hosting account with our company, you will be able to add the Memcached data caching system to your shared hosting package with just a few clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantaneously and, since the needed PHP extension is already installed on our avant-garde cloud web hosting platform, you can begin using it right away. To give you more flexibility, we offer two separate upgrades related to the number of instances (in other words – how many websites will use Memcached) and to the amount of memory that the Memcached caching system will use. The latter is offered in increments of 16 MB and you can order as much memory as you like. Logically, the more memory Memcached is allowed to use, the more data it will cache, so in case you have a busy website with lots of content, you may require more memory in order to be able to make the most of the power that Memcached can give you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you obtain any of our semi-dedicated server plans, you’ll find Memcached as an optional feature in the Upgrades part of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so if you want to use it for any of the Internet sites hosted in the semi-dedicated server hosting account, you can activate it with only a few mouse clicks. The object caching platform is suitable for any script-based application like Joomla, WordPress, or even a custom-developed app, and depending on your necessities, you’ll be able to select two separate things – how many websites will use the Memcached platform, in other words – the number of instances; and how much content will be stored, in other words – the amount of system memory that the platform will employ. The two things are not tied to each other, so if you manage a traffic-intensive site with lots of data, you can order one instance and a large amount of system memory. The Memcached platform will enhance the overall performance of your websites soon after you enable it and both you and your visitors will enjoy much faster load speeds.

Memcached in VPS Web Hosting

Memcached comes by default with every virtual private server that we are offering on the condition that you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel, so you won’t need to pay any extra cash to be able to make the most of the power of this content caching system. The more powerful VPS plan you choose, the more memory Memcached will have for information storage 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 hosting package. This will allow you to use the Memcached caching system for multiple websites, no matter how large they are, which in turn means that you can use a less powerful package for them without overloading the Virtual Private Server. The caching system is perfect for script-driven software applications such as WordPress, Joomla, OpenCart or Mambo, and you can use it even with a custom app. Shortly after you enable the Memcached caching system, it will begin caching content and you’ll observe the improved overall performance of your websites.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting

You can take advantage of the full potential of Memcached with each and every dedicated server offered by our company if you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel. A special section in it is dedicated to the distributed memory caching system and you can begin using Memcached for any Internet site hosted on the dedicated server with just a couple of mouse clicks. You can increase the performance of any site, no matter what script-driven software app you rely on or how popular the site is, as the minimum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to use is 3 gigabytes and this amount grows tremendously with the higher-end servers. Shortly after the system is enabled, it will start caching information each time someone browses your website, so, as soon as sufficient data has been cached, you will notice the lowered load on your dedicated machine and the optimized performance of your website. The Memcached caching system is being used by lots of sites, among them popular portals such as Reddit, Zynga and Wikipedia, which verifies the efficiency of the Memcached caching system.
