Memcached is a memory caching platform, which is used to optimize the overall performance of database-driven websites by caching the queries and the replies between the website visitor and the server. To put it simply, every time a given page on such a site is accessed, the script sends a database query to request the info that should be displayed to the website visitor. If the latter clicks on a hyperlink to go to another web page, the whole operation is repeated and this generates plenty of database queries and higher server load, even more so if the website has a lot of simultaneous visitors. Memcached "remembers" this information exchange, so in case any of these pages is requested again, the script no longer has to extract any info from the database, since everything is delivered by the caching platform. Thus, the overall speed of your website will "soar" and you’ll enjoy more happy visitors and they will be able to surf through your site much faster. Additionally, the Memcached platform updates its cache every time any info in the database is edited, so the visitors will never see old data.
Memcached in Cloud Website Hosting
Memcached comes as an upgrade with each and every cloud website hosting plan that we’re offering and in case you wish to use it for any script-driven Internet site that you host on our innovative cloud web hosting platform, you’ll be able to activate it in a few easy steps through your Hepsia Control Panel. In the meantime, you will be offered the option to upgrade two different features – the number of instances and the memory. The first one has to do with the number of the websites that can use the Memcached distributed memory caching system at the same time, so if you need it for several Internet sites, you can order a number of instances. The second one has to do with the total amount of memory that the system will be permitted to use to cache information, so for plenty of sites (or for one frequently visited site), you may want to get more memory for better results. The memory is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be added at any time. With Memcached, any script-based website hosted on our servers will load amazingly fast.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can add the Memcached content caching platform to any of the semi-dedicated hosting that we are offering and make use of its full potential for any script-powered Internet site hosted on our servers. The upgrade is accessible through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can select two things – the instances and the amount of system memory. These things show the number of the websites that can use the Memcached caching platform and the amount of system memory that it will use to cache your information. You can select them independently, since a given instance is not tied to a fixed amount of memory, so you can use a lot of memory for one large-sized website, for instance. This upgrade is available in increments of 16 MB and you can order as much memory as you like. The platform can be used with any script-powered website regardless of its type, including those that are based on widely used applications like Drupal, WordPress or Joomla, and many companies such as Zynga and Wikipedia are already using it to improve the loading speed of their sites.
Memcached in VPS Web Hosting
Memcached comes by default with every virtual private server offered by our company as long as you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel, so you will not need to pay any extra money to be able to make the most of the maximum capacity of this caching system. The more powerful VPS plan you pick, the more memory Memcached will have for content caching purposes, but you will have at least several hundred megabytes at all times, which is much more than the amount of memory you would get with a shared web hosting package. This will permit you to use the Memcached system for many sites, no matter how heavy they are, which in turn means that you can use a lower-end plan for them without overloading the virtual machine. The Memcached caching system is perfect for script-powered apps like WordPress, OpenCart, Joomla or Mambo, and you can utilize it even with a custom-created app. Shortly after you enable the Memcached system, it will start storing data and you will notice the optimized performance of your websites.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting
Memcached comes for free with all Linux dedicated hosting services that we’re offering and the one and only condition is that the dedicated machine must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can use the distributed memory object caching system for any database-driven site, including those based on famous applications – for instance, a WordPress personal blog or a Joomla-driven community site. Each dedicated machine is tied to a different amount of system memory that the Memcached system can employ, but the minimum amount you will get is 3 GB, which is quite enough to improve the speed of very large sites immensely, since this memory will be dedicated to storing the cached content. The Memcached system will begin storing content as soon as it’s activated, so soon thereafter, you will note the improved performance of your sites and the lowered load on the server. Numerous sites use the Memcached caching system to boost their efficiency, among them famous ones such as Reddit and Wikipedia.
