Memcached is a distributed memory caching system, which is used to supercharge the speed of database-driven Internet sites by caching the calls and the responses between the visitor and the server. In other words, every time a specific page on such a website is requested, the script connects to its database to fetch the information that should be shown to the website visitor. In case the latter clicks on a hyperlink to open some other web page, the whole procedure is performed again and this leads to numerous database requests and high load on the server, particularly if the website has lots of concurrent visitors. Memcached "remembers" this exchange of information, so if any of these web pages is opened again, the script no longer has to cull any content from the database, as everything is provided by the caching platform. Thus, the overall speed of your website will "soar" and you will get more gratified visitors and they will be able to browse your site faster. Additionally, Memcached "refreshes" its cache every time any information in the database is altered, so the users will never end up seeing old content.
Memcached in Cloud Web Hosting
Memcached comes as an upgrade with each and every cloud web hosting account offered by us and if you’d like to use it for any script-based site that you host on our advanced cloud website hosting platform, you’ll be able to order it in several simple steps via your Hepsia Control Panel. In the meantime, you will get the option to upgrade two separate features – the number of instances and the memory. The first one is related to the number of the Internet sites that can use the Memcached distributed memory caching system simultaneously, so if you need it for several websites, you can order a number of instances. The second one has to do with the maximum amount of memory that the system will be permitted to use in order to cache content, so for lots of sites (or for one single large-size site), you may want to get more memory for better results. The memory comes in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be ordered at any point. With Memcached, any script-driven site hosted on our cloud servers will load lightning-fast.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you choose to host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to take advantage of Memcached with ease, since the distributed memory caching platform’s setup takes a couple of mouse clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. The required PHP extension is pre-installed on our servers, so you can begin using the Memcached platform the moment you add it to your semi-dedicated server account. You’ll be able to select how many Internet sites can use it and how much info it will cache, in other words – there are two different upgradable features – the number of instances and the amount of memory. You can order more of both, so if one of your websites becomes very popular, for instance, you can always get more memory. Our system is exceptionally flexible in this regard and we don’t tie a specific number of instances to a fixed amount of memory. You can take advantage of the Memcached caching platform to boost the loading speed of any script-driven website, including those based on popular Internet applications, such as Joomla or WordPress.
Memcached in VPS Web Hosting
You will get Memcached with each of the virtual private server packages offered by us when you select Hepsia as your Control Panel and you will be able to activate the memory caching platform via the Control Panel section with the same name. The activation takes several clicks of the mouse and you will distinguish the difference in the overall performance of your Internet sites almost momentarily. The amount of system memory that the Memcached caching platform can employ to store data depends on the particular Virtual Private Server hosting plan that you have selected, but at any rate it will not be less than several hundred MB, which is more than enough even for multiple data-loaded Internet sites. You can use the Memcached platform with Internet sites driven by Joomla, WordPress or any other app and reduce the load on your VPS, which will allow you to keep using the current Virtual Private Server hosting plan instead of upgrading to a more powerful one, as you will simply not need it. The Memcached platform is already being used by famous websites such as Reddit, Zynga and Wikipedia, which confirms its efficiency.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting
You can unleash the full potential of Memcached with each and every dedicated server that we offer in case you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. A section in it is dedicated to the caching system and you can begin using Memcached for any site hosted on the server with just several clicks of the mouse. You can improve the performance of any Internet site, irrespective of what script-driven software application you’re using or how popular the site is, since the minimum amount of system memory that Memcached will be able to use is three gigabytes and this amount grows tremendously with the higher-end dedicated servers. Soon after the caching system is activated, it will begin caching content each time somebody accesses your website, so, as soon as sufficient content has been cached, you’ll distinguish the lowered load on the dedicated machine and the optimized performance of your Internet site. Memcached is used by numerous sites, including popular portals like Reddit, Zynga and Wikipedia, which proves the effectiveness of the Memcached system.
