Memcached is a data caching system, which is used to supercharge the performance of database-driven sites by caching the requests and the responses between the website visitor and the server. Simply put, anytime a given web page on such a website is accessed, the script sends a query to its database to request the information that should be shown to the visitor. In case the latter clicks a hyperlink to go to a different page, the whole operation is performed again and this generates lots of database requests and higher server load, particularly if the website has a lot of concurrent visitors. Memcached "remembers" this exchange of information, so if any of these web pages is accessed again, the script no longer needs to call any data from the database, since everything is delivered by the caching platform. Thus, the overall load speed of your website will increase and you’ll have more happy visitors and they’ll be able to surf through your site much faster. Plus, Memcached "refreshes" its cache when any content in the database is altered, so the website visitors will never wind up seeing old data.
Memcached in Cloud Web Hosting
When you host script-powered websites in a cloud web hosting account with us, you can add Memcached to your shared hosting plan with just a couple of clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantly and, since the extension needed for it is already installed on our avant-garde cloud platform, you can start using it right away. To give you more versatility, we offer two separate upgrades related to the number of instances (i.e. how many Internet sites will use Memcached) and to the memory that the Memcached caching system will use. The latter comes in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order as much memory as you wish. Logically, the more memory Memcached is permitted to use, the more content it will cache, so in case you manage a popular website with a lot of data, you may need more memory to be able to make the most of the power that Memcached can offer you.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can add the Memcached memory caching platform to any of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we are offering and use its full capacity for any script-powered website hosted by us. The upgrade is offered through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can choose two things – the instances and the amount of system memory. These things define how many sites can use the Memcached platform and the amount of memory that it will use to store your info. You can select them independently, since a given instance is not bound to a fixed amount of memory, so you can use a lot of memory for one traffic-intensive site, for instance. This upgrade comes in increments of 16 MB and you can order as much memory as you need. The platform can be used with any script-driven website irrespective of its nature, including those based on popular apps like Joomla, Drupal or WordPress, and plenty of companies like Wikipedia and Zynga are already using it to boost the performance of their websites.
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 won’t need to pay any extra cash to be able to make the most of the maximum capacity of this memory caching system. The more powerful VPS hosting plan you select, the more memory Memcached will have for content caching purposes, but you will have no less than several hundred megabytes all the time, which is much more than what you would get with a shared hosting package. This will allow you to use Memcached for multiple Internet sites, regardless of how large they are, which in turn goes to say that you can use a low-end package for them without overloading the virtual machine. The caching system is excellent for script-based software apps like Joomla, OpenCart, WordPress or Mambo, and you can utilize it even with a custom app. Shortly after you activate the Memcached caching system, it will start storing data and you’ll see the enhanced performance of your sites.
Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting
You can use the full potential of Memcached with each and every dedicated server that we are offering if you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel. A section in it is dedicated to the data caching system and you can start using Memcached for any site hosted on the dedicated server with just several clicks. You can accelerate the performance of any website, regardless of what script-based web app you rely on or how heavy the site is, since the minimum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to use is three gigabytes and this amount increases seriously with the higher-end servers. Shortly after the caching system is activated, it will begin caching info every time somebody visits your website, so, as soon as enough content has been stored, you’ll notice the decreased server load and the enhanced performance of your website. The Memcached caching system is used by numerous sites, among them popular portals such as Wikipedia, Reddit and Zynga, which is a proof of the effectiveness of the caching system.
