Memcached is a content caching system, which is used to enhance the overall performance of database-powered websites by caching the queries and the responses between the visitor and the server. In other words, anytime a particular page on such a site is visited, the script sends a query to its database to request the info that should be shown to the website visitor. In case the latter clicks on a hyperlink to go to some other page, the whole procedure is repeated and this generates lots of database requests and excessive load on the server, especially if the website has lots of concurrent visitors. Memcached "memorizes" this information exchange, so if any of these web pages is requested again, the script no longer has to call any data from the database, since everything is provided by the caching platform. Thus, the overall speed of your website will increase and you’ll have more gratified visitors and they will be able to surf through your site much faster. Besides, Memcached "refreshes" its cache when any data in the database is edited, so the users will never wind up seeing old data.
Memcached in Shared Web Hosting
You can make use of the Memcached distributed memory object caching system with all shared web hosting packages that we’re offering. It is offered as an optional upgrade, which you can enable with only a couple of clicks from your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. It needs an extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud web hosting platform, so you can start using Memcached the moment you add it. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts, which will give you more versatility depending on the websites that you want to use it for. The first part shows the number of the sites that will use Memcached, or the ‘instances’, whereas the second one refers to the system memory, i.e. to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can order more system memory in increments of 16 MB and the more memory you’ve got, the more content will be cached, which may be a good idea for regularly visited sites with large-size databases and many simultaneous visitors. In this way, you can accelerate the overall performance of every script-powered site hosted on our servers without efforts.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you decide to host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you can take advantage of Memcached easily, since the memory caching platform’s setup takes a couple of clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The extension that is required is pre-installed on our semi-dedicated servers, so you can begin using Memcached the moment you add it to your account. You’ll be able to select how many websites can use it and how much information can be cached, in other words – there are two separate upgradable features – the number of instances and the amount of memory. You can add more of both, so if one of your Internet sites becomes extremely popular, for example, you can always get more memory. Our system is quite flexible in this regard and we do not tie a specific number of instances to a pre-defined amount of system memory. You can use the Memcached platform to speed up any script-powered website, including those based on widely used web-based applications, such as Joomla or WordPress.
Memcached in VPS Web Hosting
You’ll get Memcached with each of the virtual private server packages offered by us when you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to activate the platform via the Control Panel section with the same name. The configuration requires a few clicks of the mouse and you will see the difference in the performance of your websites almost momentarily. The amount of system memory that the Memcached caching platform can use to store information depends on the given VPS hosting package that you have picked, but in any case it won’t be less than several hundred MB, which is more than enough even for multiple resource-heavy websites. You can use the Memcached platform with sites driven by WordPress, Joomla or any other web-based app and reduce the load on your server, which will enable you to keep using the current Virtual Private Server hosting plan rather than migrating to a more powerful one, as you simply won’t need it. The Memcached platform is already being used by famous websites such as Wikipedia, Reddit and Zynga, which is a proof of its efficacy.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting
You can unleash the full potential of Memcached with each dedicated server that we are offering in case you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. A special section in it is dedicated to the caching system and you can begin using Memcached for any site hosted on the server with just a few clicks of the mouse. You can enhance the overall performance of any site, irrespective of what script-based app you’re using or how heavy the Internet site is, since the minimum amount of system memory that Memcached will be able to use is three gigabytes and this amount grows substantially with the higher-end servers. Shortly after the caching system is activated, it will start caching data every time somebody visits your site, so, as soon as enough data has been stored, you will see the reduced server load and the improved performance of the website. The Memcached system is being used by many websites, including popular portals such as Reddit, Zynga and Wikipedia, which proves the efficiency of the Memcached caching system.
