Memcached is a distributed memory caching platform, which is used to accelerate the performance of database-driven Internet sites by caching the requests and the replies between the visitor and the server. Put simply, anytime a certain page on such a website is requested, the script calls its database to get the information that should be displayed to the visitor. In case the latter clicks on a hyperlink to visit some other web page, the whole process is carried out again and this results in multiple database queries and higher server load, especially if the website has a lot of concurrent visitors. Memcached "remembers" this exchange of information, so in case any of these pages is accessed again, the script no longer has to call any information from the database, since everything is provided by the Memcached platform. In this way, the overall loading speed of your website will increase and you’ll have more gratified visitors and they will be able to surf through your website faster. Moreover, Memcached updates its cache every time any info in the database is updated, so the site visitors will never see out-of-date content.
Memcached in Cloud Website Hosting
You can use the Memcached distributed memory object caching system with all Linux cloud website hosting packages offered by our company. It’s offered as an optional upgrade, which you can order with only a few mouse clicks from your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. It needs an extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud platform, so you can begin using the Memcached caching system as soon as you add it. The upgrade is divided into two parts, which will give you more freedom depending on the websites that you wish to use it for. The first part concerns the number of the websites that will use Memcached, or the ‘instances’, whereas the second one refers to the system memory, i.e. to how much content the system will be able to cache. You can order more memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you have ordered, the more content will be cached, which may be a really good idea for frequently visited sites with large-size databases and numerous concurrent visitors. Thus, you can increase the performance of every script-driven website hosted on our servers without any efforts.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can get the Memcached distributed memory object caching system as an optional upgrade with all our Linux semi-dedicated packages and since it works with any script-powered web app, you can use it for each site that you host on our semi-dedicated servers, irrespective of what app you have used – Joomla, Mambo or WordPress, a custom-built app, etc. You can order the upgrade through the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel from which you administer your semi-dedicated server account, and you can choose two different things – the instances and the amount of memory that they will use. Basically, these things indicate the number of the sites that will use Memcached and how much memory the system will be able to use to store your info. The two things are offered independently for more flexibility and one instance does not come with a fixed amount of system memory. You can take full advantage of the Memcached system with any sort of website and both you and your site visitors will quickly note the difference in the performance.
Memcached in VPS
Memcached comes by default with each and every virtual private server offered by our company if you select Hepsia as your Control Panel, so you won’t need to pay any extra money to be able to use the potential of this content caching system. The more powerful VPS hosting plan you choose, the more system memory Memcached will have for data storage purposes, but you’ll have no less than several hundred megabytes at all times, which is much more than the amount of memory you would get with a shared hosting package. This will enable you to use Memcached for multiple websites, irrespective of how popular they are, which in turn goes to say that you can use a low-end package for them without overloading your server. The caching system is suitable for script-based apps such as Joomla, WordPress, OpenCart or Mambo, and you can use it even with a custom app. Shortly after you activate the Memcached system, it will start caching content and you’ll notice the enhanced overall performance of your sites.
Memcached in Dedicated Hosting
You can unlock the full potential of Memcached with each dedicated server that we’re offering in case you select Hepsia as your Control Panel. A special section in it is dedicated to the content caching system and you can start using Memcached for any Internet site hosted on the server with only several clicks of the mouse. You can increase the performance of any site, irrespective of what script-powered software app you are using or how popular the website is, as the minimum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to employ is 3 GB and this amount rises tremendously with the higher-end dedicated servers. Soon after the system is activated, it will begin caching information every time somebody opens your site, so, as soon as enough data has been cached, you will distinguish the lowered server load and the enhanced overall performance of the Internet site. The Memcached caching system is being used by numerous websites, among them famous portals such as Reddit, Zynga and Wikipedia, which verifies the effectiveness of the Memcached caching system.
