Memcached is a memory caching system, which is used to improve the overall performance of database-powered sites by caching the queries and the replies between the website visitor and the server. Simply put, anytime a certain web page on such a website is accessed, the script connects to its database to fetch the information that should be shown to the visitor. In case the latter clicks on a link to visit another web page, the whole process is carried out again and this results in a lot of database calls and excessive load on the server, especially if the website has lots of simultaneous visitors. Memcached "remembers" this information exchange, so in case any of these web pages is opened again, the script no longer has to cull any info from the database, since everything is provided by the Memcached platform. In this way, the overall speed of your site will increase and you will enjoy more gratified visitors and they will be able to navigate through your site much faster. Furthermore, the Memcached platform "refreshes" its cache whenever any info in the database is altered, so the site users will never wind up seeing out-of-date content.
Memcached in Shared Hosting
When you host script-based sites in a shared hosting account with our company, you can add Memcached to your web hosting package with just a couple of mouse clicks through your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantly and, since the extension required for it is already installed on our cutting-edge cloud website hosting platform, you can begin using it straight away. To give you more flexibility, we offer two separate upgrades related to the number of instances (i.e. how many websites will use Memcached) and to the amount of 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. Naturally, the more memory the Memcached caching system is allowed to use, the more data it will cache, so in case you have a traffic-hungry site with lots of data, 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
In case you choose to host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to take advantage of Memcached with ease, since the caching platform’s activation requires a couple of mouse clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The extension that it requires is pre-installed on our semi-dedicated servers, so you can begin using the Memcached caching platform as soon as you add it to your semi-dedicated server account. You’ll be able to choose how many sites can use it and how much content it will cache, in other words – there are two separate upgradable features – the instances and the system memory. You can get more of both, so if one of your sites becomes extremely busy, for example, you can always add more memory to it. Our system is stunningly flexible in this regard and we do not tie a particular number of instances to a fixed amount of system memory. You can take advantage of the Memcached platform to boost the speed of any script-powered website, including those that are based on widely used Internet applications, such as Joomla or WordPress.
Memcached in VPS Hosting
You will get Memcached with any of the virtual private server packages offered by our company when you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel and you will be able to activate the content caching platform via the Control Panel section with the exact same name. The setup takes a few mouse clicks and you will see the difference in the performance of your websites almost instantaneously. The amount of system memory that the Memcached caching platform can take advantage of to cache information depends on the particular VPS hosting plan that you have picked, but in any case it won’t be less than several hundred megabytes, which is quite enough even for multiple large Internet sites. You can use Memcached with sites driven by Joomla, WordPress or any other application and decrease the load on your virtual machine, which will enable you to continue using the current plan instead of upgrading to a more powerful one, since you will simply not need it. The Memcached platform is already being used by famous websites such as Reddit, Wikipedia and Zynga, which demonstrates its efficiency.
Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting
You can unleash the full potential of Memcached with every dedicated server that we are offering if you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. A special section in it is dedicated to the memory caching system and you can start using Memcached for any Internet site hosted on the dedicated machine with just several mouse clicks. You can improve the overall performance of any website, no matter what script-powered app you’re using or how heavy the site is, since the minimum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to use is 3 gigabytes and this amount grows considerably with the higher-end dedicated servers. Soon after the system is activated, it will start caching info each time someone visits your site, so, as soon as enough content has been cached, you’ll notice the lowered load on the server and the improved performance of your website. Memcached is being used by numerous sites, among them famous portals like Wikipedia, Reddit and Zynga, which is a proof of the efficiency of the Memcached system.
