Memcached is an object caching system, which is used to enhance the performance of database-powered sites by caching the calls and the responses between the visitor and the server. Put simply, every time a certain page on such a website is visited, the script sends a database query to fetch the info that should be displayed to the visitor. In case the latter clicks a link to open another page, the whole operation is performed again and this results in lots of database calls and excessive load on the server, especially if the site has a lot of concurrent visitors. Memcached "memorizes" this exchange of information, so in case any of these pages is accessed again, the script no longer has to extract any information from the database, as everything is provided by the caching platform. Thus, the overall load speed of your site will "soar" and you’ll have more happy visitors and they’ll be able to surf through your website faster. Besides, the Memcached platform updates its cache when any info in the database is modified, so the users will never wind up seeing out-of-date content.

Memcached in Website Hosting

Memcached comes as an upgrade with each website hosting account that we are offering and in case you would like to use it for any script-powered website that you host on our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform, you will be able to activate it in a few simple steps via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. In the meantime, you’ll be offered the option to upgrade two different features – the number of instances and the memory. The first one refers to the number of the sites that can use the Memcached memory caching system at the same time, so if you need it for several websites, you can get a handful of instances. The second one refers to the maximum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to use to cache info, so for many websites (or for one resource-intensive 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 time. With the Memcached caching system, every script-based website hosted on our cloud servers will open blazing-fast.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you acquire any of our semi-dedicated server packages, you will find Memcached as an optional feature in the Upgrades part of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so if you want to use it for any of the sites hosted in your account, you can enable it with only a couple of clicks of the mouse. The distributed memory object caching platform is suitable for any script-powered software application such as WordPress, Joomla, or even an in-house made one, and based on your needs, you’ll be able to select two separate things – how many websites will use Memcached, in other words – the number of instances; and how much information will be stored, i.e. the amount of memory that the platform will use. The two things are not tied to each other, so if you own a traffic-intensive website with lots of data, you can get one instance and a larger amount of system memory. The Memcached platform will boost the performance of your websites shortly after you enable it and both you and your website visitors will enjoy much faster loading speeds.

Memcached in VPS Hosting

Memcached is included by default with each and every virtual private server offered by our company if you select Hepsia as your Control Panel, so you will not have to pay any extra money to be able to use the power of this caching system. The more powerful Virtual Private Server hosting package you pick, the more system memory Memcached will have for information storage purposes, but you will have at least several hundred megabytes all the time, which is much more than what you’d get with a shared package. This will enable you to use the Memcached system for multiple websites, irrespective of how busy they are, which in turn goes to say that you can use a low-end package for them without overloading the VPS server. The caching system is perfect for script-driven software applications like WordPress, Joomla, OpenCart or Mambo, and you can use it even with a custom-made app. Soon after you activate Memcached, it will begin storing info and you will note the improved overall performance of your sites.

Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting

When you buy any of our Linux dedicated hosting services and if you pick Hepsia as your web hosting Control Panel on the order form, you will get the Memcached data caching platform as standard and you can use it with any site that you host on your dedicated machine without upgrading or installing anything. It will begin caching info as people open your website, so you will detect the result of using it shortly thereafter. The minimum amount of system memory that will be available to the Memcached caching platform is 3 gigabytes and naturally, the more powerful the dedicated package, the more system memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will permit you to take advantage of the platform for many sites or for an extremely heavy website without compromising its efficiency. The Memcached platform will allow you to increase the loading speed of any database-powered Internet site in no time – a Joomla portal, a WordPress personal diary, an OpenCart e-store, etcetera, and to enhance the performance of your server.
