Memcached is a caching platform, which is used to accelerate the load speed of database-driven Internet sites by caching the calls and the responses between the user and the server. To put it differently, anytime a specific web page on such a site is accessed, the script sends a database query to request the info that should be shown to the website visitor. If the latter clicks a hyperlink to visit another web page, the whole operation is carried out again and this generates plenty of database calls and high server load, especially if the site has a lot of simultaneous visitors. Memcached "remembers" this exchange of information, so if any of these web pages is opened again, the script no longer needs to cull any data from the database, as everything is delivered by the caching platform. Thus, the overall loading speed of your site will increase and you will get more happy visitors and they will be able to navigate through your website faster. Besides, the Memcached platform updates its cache whenever any content in the database is updated, so the website visitors will never wind up seeing outdated content.

Memcached in Cloud Web Hosting

Memcached is offered as an optional upgrade with each and every cloud web hosting plan that we offer and if you’d like to use it for any script-driven website that you host on our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform, you will be able to order it in a few easy steps through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. In the meantime, you’ll be given the option to upgrade two separate things – the number of instances and the system memory. The first one refers to the number of the websites that can use the Memcached content caching system simultaneously, so if you need it for several Internet sites, you can order a handful of instances. The second one refers to the total amount of memory that Memcached will be permitted to use to cache information, so for numerous websites (or for one single popular site), you may want to get more memory for improved performance. The memory comes in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be added at any time. With the Memcached caching system, any script-powered Internet site hosted on our cloud servers will open extremely fast.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you obtain one of our semi-dedicated server packages, you’ll find Memcached as an optional upgrade in the Upgrades section of your Hepsia Control Panel, so if you’d like to use it for any of the Internet sites hosted in the semi-dedicated account, you can enable it with just a few clicks of the mouse. The memory caching platform is perfect for any script-based application such as WordPress, Joomla, or even a custom-made application, and depending on your necessities, you will be able to select two different features – how many sites will use the Memcached caching platform, i.e. the number of instances; and how much info will be cached, i.e. the amount of system memory that the platform will use. The two things are not tied to each other, so if you run a traffic-heavy site with a lot of content, you can order one instance and a larger amount of memory. The Memcached caching platform will increase the overall performance of your Internet sites soon after you enable it and both you and your website visitors will enjoy much faster load times.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

You can take advantage of the full potential of Memcached with each and every dedicated server that we’re offering in case you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel. A special Control Panel section is dedicated to the distributed memory caching system and you can begin using Memcached for any website hosted on the dedicated server with only a few mouse clicks. You can improve the performance of any site, no matter what script-based application you rely on or how busy the website is, since the minimum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to employ is three gigabytes and this amount increases enormously with the more powerful servers. Shortly after the system is enabled, it will start caching content each time someone opens your website, so, once enough info has been cached, you will see the lowered load on your server and the optimized performance of the Internet site. Memcached is used by lots of sites, among them famous portals like Wikipedia, Zynga and Reddit, which is an evidence of the effectiveness of the Memcached caching system.
