Memcached is a distributed memory caching system, which is used to accelerate the loading speed of database-driven sites by caching the requests and the replies between the website visitor and the server. To put it simply, anytime a specific web page on such a site is requested, the script queries its database to request the info that should be displayed to the visitor. In case the latter clicks a link to open some other web page, the whole process is repeated and this leads to numerous database requests and excessive load on the server, especially if the site has a lot of simultaneous visitors. Memcached "remembers" this exchange of information, so if any of these pages is accessed again, the script no longer has to pull any info from the database, since everything is delivered by the Memcached platform. In this way, the overall speed of your website will increase and you will enjoy more pleased visitors and they will be able to navigate through your website much faster. In addition, the Memcached platform "refreshes" its cache every time any content in the database is modified, so the visitors will never end up seeing old data.
Memcached in Cloud Web Hosting
You can take advantage of the Memcached content caching system with all Linux cloud web hosting service that we’re offering. It is available as an upgrade, which you can acquire with just a few clicks of the mouse through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It needs an extension, which is already installed on our cloud website hosting platform, so you can start using Memcached once you order it. The upgrade is separated into two parts, which will give you more flexibility depending on the websites that you’d like to use it for. The first part determines the number of the websites that will use Memcached, or the ‘instances’, whereas the second one refers to the memory, i.e. to how much content the system will be able to cache. You can get more system memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you have ordered, the more content will be cached, which may be a quite good idea for traffic-intensive sites with large databases and lots of visitors. In this way, you can supercharge the loading speed of any script-driven Internet site hosted on our servers without any efforts.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can add the Memcached distributed memory object caching platform to any of the semi-dedicated hosting service that we’re offering and use its full capacity for any script-driven website hosted on our servers. The upgrade is offered through the Hepsia Control Panel and you can select two things – the instances and the amount of memory. These things specify how many sites can use the Memcached platform and the amount of system memory that it will use to store your info. You can select them independently, since one instance is not linked to a specific amount of memory, so you can use a lot of memory for one resource-heavy website, for example. This upgrade comes in increments of 16 megabytes and you can get as much memory as you wish. The platform can be used with any script-powered website regardless of its nature, including those that are based on popular applications like Joomla, Drupal or WordPress, and a lot of companies like Wikipedia and Zynga are already using it to improve the performance of their sites.
Memcached in VPS Servers
Memcached comes by default with each VPS server offered by us on the condition that you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel, so you will not have to pay any extra cash to be able to use the power of this caching system. The more powerful VPS hosting plan you pick, the more memory Memcached will have for content caching purposes, but you’ll have at least several hundred megabytes at all times, which is much more than the amount of memory you would get with a shared plan. This will enable you to use the Memcached system for a lot of Internet sites, no matter how heavy they are, which in turn goes to say that you can use a lower-end package for them without overloading the VPS. The caching system is excellent for script-based software apps such as WordPress, OpenCart, Joomla or Mambo, and you can utilize it even with a custom app. Soon after you enable Memcached, it will start storing info and you’ll detect the enhanced overall performance of your websites.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers
If you obtain any of our Linux dedicated service and if you pick Hepsia as your web hosting Control Panel during the order process, you will get the Memcached content caching platform as standard and you can enable it for any site that you host on your server without installing or upgrading anything. It will start caching data as people access your website, so you’ll detect the result of using it soon thereafter. The minimum amount of system memory that will be available to the Memcached platform is 3 GB and naturally, the more powerful the dedicated plan, the more memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will enable you to use the platform for many sites or for a very busy Internet site without compromising its efficiency. The Memcached platform will enable you to enhance the load speed of any database-powered website in no time – a Joomla portal, a WordPress blog, an OpenCart e-store, etcetera, and to boost the performance of your dedicated server.
