Memcached is a distributed memory caching platform, which is used to supercharge the speed of database-driven websites by caching the requests and the responses between the visitor and the server. In simple terms, every time a given web page on such a website is requested, the script sends a query to its database to fetch the information that should be shown to the visitor. If the latter clicks a hyperlink to visit some other page, the whole process is performed again and this leads to multiple database queries and higher server load, especially if the site has lots of simultaneous visitors. Memcached "memorizes" this exchange of information, so in case any of these web pages is requested again, the script no longer needs to fetch any info from the database, since everything is provided by the Memcached platform. In this way, the overall speed of your website will increase and you’ll have more gratified visitors and they will be able to surf through your website faster. At the same time, Memcached updates its cache every time any information in the database is updated, so the site users will never wind up seeing out-of-date data.
Memcached in Cloud Hosting
Memcached is available as an optional upgrade with each and every cloud hosting package that we offer and in case you’d like to use it for any script-driven Internet site that you host on our leading-edge cloud website hosting platform, you’ll be able to enable it in several easy steps via your Hepsia Control Panel. During the process, you’ll get the option to upgrade two separate things – the instances and the system memory. The first one refers to the number of the websites that can use the Memcached data caching system simultaneously, so if you need it for several sites, you can get a number of instances. The second one has to do with the total amount of memory that Memcached will be able to use to cache content, so for numerous websites (or for one single busy site), you may want to order more memory for better performance. The memory is offered in increments of 16 MB and more memory can be ordered at any time. With the Memcached caching system, each script-driven site hosted on our servers will load extra-fast.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you obtain any of our semi-dedicated server packages, you’ll find Memcached as an optional feature in the Upgrades part of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so if you would like to use it for any of the sites hosted in the semi-dedicated server hosting account, you can add it with just a few mouse clicks. The memory caching platform is ideal for any script-powered software application such as Joomla, WordPress, or even a tailor-made application, and based on your necessities, you will be able to choose two different features – how many Internet sites will use the Memcached caching platform, in other words – the number of instances; and how much information will be cached, in other words – the amount of system memory that the platform will employ. The two features are not bound to each other, so if you manage a popular site with lots of content, you can get one instance and a large amount of memory. Memcached will accelerate the performance of your sites shortly after you enable it and both you and your site visitors will enjoy much better load speeds.
Memcached in VPS Servers
Memcached is included by default with each VPS server that we’re offering as long as you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel, so you won’t need to pay any extra cash to be able to take advantage of the power of this content caching system. The more powerful VPS hosting plan you choose, the more system memory Memcached will have for data storage purposes, but you will have at least several hundred megabytes all the time, which is much more than the amount of memory you’d get with a shared hosting plan. This will permit you to use Memcached for a lot of websites, regardless of how large they are, which in turn goes to say that you can use a low-end package for them without overloading your virtual server. The Memcached caching system is perfect for script-based web applications like WordPress, OpenCart, Joomla or Mambo, and you can utilize it even with a custom-developed app. Soon after you enable Memcached, it will start storing content and you’ll distinguish the enhanced performance of your websites.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers
You can unlock the full potential of Memcached with each and every dedicated server that we are offering in case you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel. A special section in it is dedicated to the memory caching system and you can begin using Memcached for any website hosted on the server with just several clicks. You can improve the performance of any site, regardless of what script-powered software application you rely on or how popular the website is, since the minimum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to use is 3 GB and this amount rises substantially with the more powerful servers. Soon after the system is enabled, it will begin caching info each time somebody opens your site, so, once enough data has been stored, you’ll see the decreased load and the improved performance of the Internet site. The Memcached system is used by a lot of sites, including famous portals such as Reddit, Wikipedia and Zynga, which verifies the effectiveness of the caching system.
