Memcached is a caching system, which is used to boost the overall performance of database-powered websites by caching the requests and the responses between the user and the server. To put it in simple terms, anytime a particular web page on such a website is visited, the script queries its database to request the information that should be displayed to the visitor. If the latter clicks a hyperlink to visit some other web page, the entire procedure is performed again and this leads to lots of database queries and excessive load on the server, particularly if the website has lots of simultaneous visitors. Memcached "remembers" this information exchange, so if any of these web pages is visited again, the script no longer has to fetch any data from the database, as everything is delivered by the caching platform. Thus, the overall load speed of your website will "soar" and you will get more satisfied visitors and they’ll be able to surf through your site faster. Furthermore, Memcached updates its cache if any data in the database is edited, so the site visitors will never see old data.

Memcached in Website Hosting

You can take advantage of the Memcached caching system with all website hosting that we offer. It’s offered as an optional upgrade, which you can obtain with only a couple of clicks through your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. It requires an extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud web hosting platform, so you can begin using the Memcached caching system as soon as you add it. The upgrade is divided into two parts, which will give you more versatility depending on the Internet sites that you wish to use it for. The first part shows the number of the websites that will use Memcached, or the ‘instances’, whereas the second one refers to the memory, in other words – to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can add more system memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you’ve added, the more content will be cached, which may be a pretty good idea for traffic-heavy websites with large-sized databases and numerous visitors. Thus, you can supercharge the speed of any script-powered Internet site hosted on our cloud servers without any effort.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you order any of our semi-dedicated server plans, you’ll find Memcached as an optional feature in the Upgrades part of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so if you wish to use it for any of the sites hosted in the semi-dedicated server hosting account, you can activate it with only a few clicks. The memory caching platform is suitable for any script-powered software application such as Joomla, WordPress, or even a tailor-made one, and depending on your demands, you will be able to choose two separate features – how many sites will use Memcached, in other words – the number of instances; and how much content will be stored, in other words – the amount of memory that the platform will use. The two things are not bound to each other, so if you run a busy website with a lot of content, you can order one instance and a large amount of memory. The Memcached caching platform will improve the overall performance of your websites soon after you enable it and both you and your site visitors will enjoy better loading speeds.

Memcached in VPS Web Hosting

If you buy a virtual private server from us, you will be able to use Memcached at no additional price, as the data caching platform is offered with all VPS servers that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. Even if you have popular Internet sites, you can accelerate their performance without any effort and the decreased load on your server will permit you to keep using your current Virtual Private Server package instead of migrating to a more powerful one. The amount of system memory that the Memcached platform can use to cache information depends on the plan that you are using, but even with a lower-end one, you will get no less than several hundred MB, which is significantly more than the amount of memory you’d get with a shared hosting package, so the website performance boost will be immense. You can take advantage of Memcached with any database-driven web application, irrespective of whether you have built it on your own or you are using a ready-made one such as Joomla, OpenCart or WordPress.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Each dedicated server that is ordered with our Hepsia Control Panel comes with Memcached already installed by default, so you can begin using this memory caching system once the server is assembled, without the need to activate or upgrade anything. The amount of memory that Memcached can employ depends on the dedicated server that you’ve selected, but as our servers are very powerful and given the fact that it is likely that you’ll host resource-hungry Internet sites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the system can use will be three gigabytes. This will enable you to improve the overall performance of very large websites with no effort and you’ll note the difference shortly after the Memcached caching system begins caching database calls. You can make use of the Memcached caching system with any database-driven portal, including those based on famous CMSs like WordPress and Joomla.
