Memcached is an object caching system, which is used to enhance the loading speed of database-powered sites by caching the queries and the replies between the visitor and the server. Simply put, every time a particular web page on such a site is opened, the script calls its database to request the information that should be shown to the visitor. In case the latter clicks on a hyperlink to visit another web page, the whole procedure is executed again and this leads to lots of database requests and higher load on the server, even more so if the website has a lot of concurrent visitors. Memcached "remembers" this information exchange, so in case any of these web pages is requested again, the script no longer needs to extract any information from the database, since everything is delivered by the Memcached platform. In this way, the overall load speed of your website will increase and you will get more satisfied visitors and they will be able to navigate through your site much faster. Moreover, the Memcached platform "refreshes" its cache if any content in the database is updated, so the users will never see outdated content.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

You can take advantage of the Memcached memory caching system with all Linux cloud hosting that we are offering. It is available as an optional upgrade, which you can obtain with only a few clicks via your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. It needs a PHP extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud website hosting platform, so you can begin using the Memcached caching system once you order it. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts, which will give you more versatility depending on the sites that you want to use it for. The first one determines the number of the websites that will use the Memcached caching system, or the ‘instances’, while the second one refers to the memory, i.e. to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can add more memory in increments of 16 MB and the more memory you’ve ordered, the more data will be cached, which may be a very good idea for popular websites with very large databases and a lot of simultaneous visitors. In this way, you can supercharge the speed of every script-driven website hosted on our servers without efforts.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you decide to host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to take advantage of Memcached effortlessly, as the distributed memory caching platform’s activation requires several clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. The PHP extension that is required is pre-installed on our servers, so you can start using the Memcached platform as soon as you add it to your account. You will be able to choose how many sites can use it and how much data it will cache, in other words – there’re two different features that can be upgraded – the instances and the system memory. You can add more of both, so if one of your websites becomes very popular, for instance, you can always get more memory. Our system is unbelievably flexible in this regard and we do not bind a given number of instances to a pre-defined amount of memory. You can use the Memcached platform to boost the loading speed of any script-powered site, including those that are based on popular web apps, such as WordPress or Joomla.

Memcached in VPS Hosting

You’ll get Memcached with each of the virtual private server packages that we are offering if you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel and you will be able to activate the distributed memory caching platform through the Control Panel section with the very same name. The configuration requires a few clicks and you’ll detect the difference in the performance of your sites almost immediately. The amount of system memory that Memcached can employ to cache info depends on the particular Virtual Private Server hosting package that you’ve chosen, but at any rate it won’t be less than several hundred megabytes, which is quite enough even for multiple content-heavy Internet sites. You can use Memcached with Internet sites based on Joomla, WordPress or any other application and decrease the load on your server, which will permit you to continue using the current Virtual Private Server hosting plan instead of moving to a more powerful one, as you will simply not need it. Memcached is already being used by popular websites like Reddit, Zynga and Wikipedia, which proves its efficiency.

Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting

You can make use of the full potential of Memcached with each and every dedicated server that we offer in case you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. A section in it is dedicated to the caching system and you can start using Memcached for any website hosted on the server with just several clicks. You can accelerate the overall performance of any Internet site, no matter what script-driven app you rely on or how heavy the Internet site is, since the minimum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to use is three gigabytes and this amount rises significantly with the higher-end dedicated servers. Shortly after the caching system is enabled, it will start caching info every time somebody opens your website, so, as soon as sufficient content has been stored, you will distinguish the lowered load on your dedicated server and the improved overall performance of the site. The Memcached caching system is used by plenty of sites, including popular portals like Reddit, Wikipedia and Zynga, which proves the efficiency of the Memcached caching system.
