Memcached is a distributed memory caching system, which is used to boost the overall performance of database-driven sites by caching the calls and the responses between the website visitor and the server. To put it differently, every time a particular web page on such a site is opened, the script connects to its database to fetch the info that should be displayed to the website visitor. If the latter clicks on a hyperlink to go to some other page, the whole procedure is executed again and this leads to plenty of database requests and high server load, even more so if the site has a lot of simultaneous visitors. Memcached "memorizes" this exchange of information, so if any of these pages is accessed again, the script no longer needs to request any information from the database, as everything is provided by the Memcached platform. In this way, the overall load speed of your website will "soar" and you’ll get more pleased visitors and they will be able to browse your site much faster. Additionally, the Memcached platform "refreshes" its cache if any content in the database is updated, so the users will never wind up seeing outdated content.

Memcached in Shared Hosting

When you host script-powered sites in a shared hosting account with us, you’ll be able to add the Memcached content caching system to your web hosting package with only a couple of clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available momentarily and, since the extension needed for it is already installed on our cutting-edge cloud platform, you can begin using it straight away. To give you more flexibility, we offer two different upgrades related to the number of instances (in other words – how many websites will use Memcached) and to the amount of system memory that the Memcached caching system will use. The latter comes in increments of 16 megabytes and you can add as much memory as you like. Logically, the more memory the Memcached caching system is permitted to use, the more content it will cache, so in case you manage a traffic-hungry website with a lot of content, you may require more memory to be able to take full advantage of the power that Memcached can offer you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you buy one of our semi-dedicated server plans, you will find Memcached as an optional upgrade in the Upgrades section of your Hepsia Control Panel, so if you wish to use it for any of the websites hosted in your semi-dedicated server hosting account, you can add it with only a few mouse clicks. The content caching platform is ideal for any script-driven application like Joomla, WordPress, or even a custom app, and based on your requirements, you will be able to select two different features – how many websites will use the Memcached caching platform, i.e. the number of instances; and how much info will be cached, i.e. the amount of system memory that the platform will use. The two features are not tied to each other, so if you have a traffic-consuming website with lots of content, you can get one instance and a larger amount of memory. The Memcached platform will boost the performance of your Internet sites shortly after you enable it and both you and your visitors will enjoy faster load speeds.

Memcached in VPS Hosting

Memcached is offered by default with each virtual private server offered by us if 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 full power of this memory caching system. The more powerful VPS package you choose, the more system memory Memcached will have for content caching purposes, but you’ll have no less than several hundred megabytes all the time, which is much more than what you’d get with a shared hosting package. This will permit you to use Memcached for many websites, no matter how busy they are, which in turn goes to say that you can use a lower-end plan for them without overloading your VPS server. The caching system is perfect for script-driven applications such as Joomla, WordPress, OpenCart or Mambo, and you can utilize it even with a custom-developed app. Soon after you enable Memcached, it will start storing content and you will observe the enhanced performance of your sites.

Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting

You can unlock the full potential of Memcached with every dedicated server that we’re offering if you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. A special Control Panel section is dedicated to the distributed memory caching system and you can start using Memcached for any Internet site hosted on the dedicated server with just several clicks of the mouse. You can improve the performance of any site, irrespective of what script-powered application you are using or how busy the site is, as the minimum amount of system memory that Memcached will be able to use is 3 GB and this amount increases immensely with the higher-end dedicated servers. Soon after the system is activated, it will start caching information each time somebody accesses your website, so, once sufficient content has been cached, you will detect the decreased load on your server and the optimized performance of the Internet site. The Memcached caching system is used by plenty of sites, among them famous portals like Reddit, Wikipedia and Zynga, which shows the effectiveness of the Memcached caching system.
