Memcached is a data caching system, which is used to supercharge the loading speed of database-driven sites by caching the calls and the replies between the website visitor and the server. To put it differently, anytime a certain page on such a website is opened, the script sends a query to its database to request the info that should be displayed to the website visitor. In case the latter clicks a hyperlink to go to another page, the whole procedure is repeated and this leads to plenty of database queries and higher load on the server, particularly if the site has lots of concurrent visitors. Memcached "remembers" this information exchange, so in case any of these pages is accessed again, the script no longer needs to fetch any information from the database, as everything is delivered by the Memcached platform. In this way, the overall load speed of your website will increase and you will have more satisfied visitors and they will be able to browse your website much faster. Besides, Memcached "refreshes" its cache if any content in the database is modified, so the site users will never end up seeing out-of-date content.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

You can make use of the Memcached caching system with all cloud hosting plans offered by our company. It’s offered as an upgrade, which you can enable with only a few mouse clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It needs an extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud website hosting platform, so you can start using Memcached as soon as you add it. The upgrade is divided into two parts, which will give you more freedom depending on the sites that you wish to use it for. The first part shows the number of the sites that will use the Memcached caching system, or the ‘instances’, while the second one refers to the memory, in other words – to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can get more memory in increments of 16 MB and the more memory you’ve ordered, the more content will be cached, which may be a pretty good idea for traffic-heavy websites with large-sized databases and plenty of users. Thus, you can accelerate the speed of every script-powered website hosted on our servers with no effort.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can get the Memcached distributed memory caching system as an upgrade with all our semi-dedicated plans and since it works with any script-driven web app, you can use it for each site that you host on our platform, no matter what application you have used – Joomla, WordPress or Mambo, a custom-developed application, etc. You can request the upgrade through the respective section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel from which you administer your semi-dedicated server account, and you can choose two different things – the instances and the amount of system memory that they will use. Basically, these things determine how many websites will use the Memcached system and how much system memory the system will be able to use to store your info. The two things are offered independently for more freedom and one instance does not come bundled with a pre-defined amount of system memory. You can make use of Memcached with any type of site and both you and your visitors will swiftly perceive the difference in the overall performance.

Memcached in VPS Servers

When you order a VPS server from our company, you will be able to use Memcached at no additional cost, as the memory caching platform comes with all VPSs that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Even if you manage regularly visited sites, you’ll be able to enhance their overall performance without any effort and the reduced load on your virtual machine will permit you to keep your current plan rather than upgrading to a more powerful one. The amount of system memory that the Memcached platform can use to store info depends on the package that you’re using, but even with a lower-end one, you will have no less than several hundred MB, which is considerably more than what you’d get with a shared web hosting plan, so the website performance boost will be noticeable. You can use the Memcached platform with any database-driven application, irrespective of whether you’ve set it up yourself or you’re using a ready-made one such as Joomla, WordPress or OpenCart.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

Any dedicated server ordered with our Hepsia Control Panel comes with Memcached pre-installed by default, so you can start using this object caching system as soon as the dedicated server is ready, without the need to install or upgrade anything. The amount of system memory that Memcached can use depends on the very server that you’ve selected, but since our servers are rather powerful and considering the fact that it is likely that you will host resource-hungry sites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the system can use is three gigabytes. This will allow you to boost the performance of very large sites without effort and you will note the difference shortly after the Memcached caching system begins caching database calls. You can make the most of the Memcached system with any database-powered web page, including those that are based on widely used CMSs like Joomla and WordPress.
