Memcached is a caching system, which is used to enhance the loading speed of database-driven sites by caching the queries and the replies between the user and the server. In other words, anytime a specific web page on such a website is requested, the script connects to its database to get the information that should be displayed to the website visitor. If the latter clicks on a link to open a different page, the entire operation is carried out again and this results in numerous database requests and higher load on the server, even more so if the website has a lot of simultaneous visitors. Memcached "memorizes" this information exchange, so if any of these web pages is requested again, the script no longer has to fetch any content from the database, as everything is provided by the Memcached platform. In this way, the overall load speed of your site will increase and you will have more satisfied visitors and they’ll be able to browse your website much faster. What’s more, the Memcached platform updates its cache when any information in the database is edited, so the website users will never end up seeing old content.

Memcached in Cloud Website Hosting

When you host script-driven websites in a cloud website hosting account with us, you’ll be able to add the Memcached object caching system to your shared web hosting package with only a few clicks of the mouse from your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantly and, since the needed extension is pre-installed on our avant-garde cloud web hosting platform, you can start using it straight away. To give you more versatility, we offer two separate upgrades related to the number of instances (i.e. how many websites will use Memcached) and to the memory that the Memcached caching system will use. The latter is available in increments of 16 MB and you can add memory whenever you want. Logically, the more memory the Memcached caching system is permitted to use, the more data it will cache, so in case you have a large website with a lot of content, you may require more memory so as to be able to take full advantage of the power that Memcached can give you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can add the Memcached object caching platform to any of the semi-dedicated hosting plans offered by us and make use of its full capacity for any script-powered Internet site hosted on our servers. The upgrade is offered through the Hepsia Control Panel and you can choose two features – the number of instances and the memory. These things indicate the number of the websites that can use Memcached and the amount of memory that it will use to store your info. You can choose them independently, since one instance is not tied to a particular amount of memory, so you can use a lot of memory for a single large-scale site, for instance. This upgrade is available in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order as much memory as you like. The platform can be used with any script-driven website irrespective of its type, including those that are based on widespread web applications like Joomla, WordPress or Drupal, and plenty of companies such as Wikipedia and Zynga are already using it to enhance the loading speed of their websites.

Memcached in VPS Servers

You’ll get Memcached with any of the VPS server packages that we are offering if you select Hepsia as your Control Panel and you will be able to activate the data caching platform through the Control Panel section with the same name. The setup requires several mouse clicks and you will distinguish the difference in the performance of your websites almost instantaneously. The amount of memory that Memcached can employ to cache data depends on the particular VPS hosting plan that you’ve chosen, but at any rate it won’t be less than several hundred MB, which is more than enough even for several traffic-hungry websites. You can use Memcached with websites powered by Joomla, WordPress or any other application and lower the load on your VPS, which will enable you to keep using the current plan rather than moving to a more powerful one, since you simply won’t need it. Memcached is already being used by famous websites like Zynga, Reddit and Wikipedia, which is a proof of its effectiveness.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

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 special section in it is dedicated to the data caching system and you can start using Memcached for any site hosted on the dedicated machine with just several clicks of the mouse. You can improve the overall performance of any Internet site, regardless of what script-based software application you’re using or how large the website is, since the minimum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to use is three gigabytes and this amount rises immensely with the more powerful dedicated servers. Soon after the caching system is activated, it will start caching data anytime somebody visits your website, so, once enough information has been stored, you will detect the reduced load on your dedicated server and the improved performance of the Internet site. The Memcached caching system is being used by a lot of websites, among them popular portals such as Wikipedia, Zynga and Reddit, which is a confirmation of the efficiency of the Memcached caching system.
