Memcached is a distributed memory caching platform, which is used to enhance the overall performance of database-powered sites by caching the calls and the responses between the website visitor and the server. In simple terms, every time a given page on such a website is visited, the script sends a database query to request the info that should be shown to the website visitor. If the latter clicks on a hyperlink to open some other web page, the entire operation is carried out again and this results in numerous database calls and higher load on the server, even more so if the site has lots of simultaneous visitors. Memcached "memorizes" this information exchange, so if any of these web pages is accessed again, the script no longer needs to request any data from the database, since everything is provided by the Memcached platform. In this way, the overall loading speed of your site will increase and you will get more satisfied visitors and they’ll be able to surf through your website faster. Additionally, Memcached updates its cache when any information in the database is modified, so the site visitors will never end up seeing out-of-date content.
Memcached in Cloud Website Hosting
When you host script-based sites in a cloud website hosting account with our company, you will be able to add the Memcached memory caching system to your hosting plan with only a couple of mouse clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantly and, since the required extension is already installed on our innovative cloud website hosting platform, you can begin using it straight away. To give you more versatility, we offer two different upgrades related to the number of instances (in other words – how many Internet sites will use Memcached) and to the memory that Memcached will use. The latter is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and you can add as much memory as you wish. Naturally, the more memory the Memcached caching system is permitted to use, the more content it will cache, so in case you run a larger website with lots of data, you may need more memory so as to be able to make the most of the power that Memcached can offer you.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can add the Memcached caching platform to any of the semi-dedicated hosting plans that we are offering and make use of its full potential for any script-powered website hosted on our servers. The upgrade is offered through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can choose two things – the instances and the amount of memory. These things show the number of the sites that can use the Memcached platform and the amount of memory that it will use to cache your information. You can choose 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-consuming website, for example. This feature is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order as much memory as you want. The Memcached platform can be used with any script-driven site irrespective of its type, including those based on widespread web applications like Drupal, WordPress or Joomla, and a lot of companies such as Wikipedia and Zynga are already using it to boost the loading speed of their websites.
Memcached in VPS Servers
Memcached comes by default with every VPS server offered by our company on the condition that you select Hepsia as your Control Panel, so you won’t need to pay anything extra to be able to use the potential of this content caching system. The more powerful Virtual Private Server plan you select, the more memory Memcached will have for data caching purposes, but you’ll have at least several hundred MB at all times, which is much more than what you’d get with a shared package. This will permit you to use the Memcached system for lots of websites, irrespective of how large they are, which in turn means that you can use a lower-end package for them without overloading the virtual machine. The Memcached caching system is suitable for script-based software applications such as OpenCart, Joomla, WordPress or Mambo, and you can use it even with a custom-built app. Shortly after you activate the Memcached system, it will begin caching info and you’ll notice the improved overall performance of your websites.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers
You can use the full potential of Memcached with every dedicated server that we’re offering in case you select 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 machine with just a couple of clicks. You can accelerate the performance of any Internet site, regardless of what script-driven web app you rely on or how large the website is, as the minimum amount of system memory that Memcached will be able to employ is three gigabytes and this amount increases tremendously with the more powerful dedicated servers. Soon after the caching system is activated, it will begin caching information each time someone accesses your website, so, as soon as sufficient info has been cached, you will perceive the decreased load and the optimized performance of your website. The Memcached caching system is being used by lots of sites, among them famous portals like Zynga, Reddit and Wikipedia, which is a confirmation of the efficiency of the caching system.
