Memcached is a data caching system, which is used to increase the load speed of database-powered Internet sites by caching the requests and the replies between the website visitor and the server. To put it differently, anytime a particular page on such a site is visited, the script connects to its database to get the information that should be displayed to the website visitor. In case the latter clicks a link to visit some other page, the entire operation is executed again and this leads to plenty of database calls and high load on the server, especially if the website has a lot of concurrent visitors. Memcached "remembers" this exchange of information, so if any of these pages is requested again, the script no longer has to call any info from the database, since everything is provided by the Memcached platform. In this way, the overall loading speed of your site will "soar" and you’ll enjoy more gratified visitors and they will be able to surf through your website much faster. At the same time, Memcached "refreshes" its cache whenever any info in the database is edited, so the site visitors will never see outdated data.
Memcached in Cloud Web Hosting
Memcached is available as an optional upgrade with each and every cloud web hosting
account that we’re offering and in case you want to use it for any script-based site that you host on our innovative cloud website hosting platform, you will be able to order it in a few simple steps through your Hepsia Control Panel. In the meantime, you’ll be offered the option to upgrade two separate features – the instances and the memory. The first one has to do with the number of the sites that can use the Memcached object caching system at the same time, so if you need it for several Internet sites, you can get a handful of instances. The second one refers to the maximum amount of memory that the system will be able to use to cache info, so for plenty of sites (or for one single traffic-heavy site), you should order 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-driven website hosted on our servers will load lightning-fast.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you choose to host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server
account, you will be able to take advantage of Memcached with ease, as the object caching platform’s setup requires several clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The extension that it requires is already installed on our semi-dedicated servers, so you can begin using the Memcached platform as soon as you add it to your account. You will be able to select how many sites can use it and how much info can be cached, in other words – there’re two separate features that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the system memory. You can get more of both, so if one of your Internet sites becomes extremely popular, for example, you can always order more memory. Our system is really flexible in this regard and we do not bind a specific number of instances to a pre-defined amount of system memory. You can take advantage of Memcached to increase the loading speed of any script-driven Internet site, including those that are based on popular Internet apps, such as WordPress or Joomla™
Memcached in VPS Web Hosting
You will get Memcached with each of the virtual private server
plans that we’re offering if you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel and you will be able to activate the distributed memory object caching platform via the section with the exact same name. The setup takes several clicks of the mouse and you will notice the difference in the performance of your Internet sites almost immediately. The amount of system memory that Memcached can take advantage of to store information depends on the particular Virtual Private Server package that you’ve picked, but at any rate it will be at least several hundred megabytes, which is quite enough even for several frequently visited sites. You can use the Memcached platform with Internet sites driven by WordPress, Joomla™
or any other app and decrease the load on your virtual server, which will permit you to keep using the current plan rather than switching to a more powerful one, as you simply won’t need it. Memcached is already being used by famous websites like Zynga, Wikipedia and Reddit, which demonstrates its efficacy.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting
You can take advantage of the full potential of Memcached with each dedicated server
offered by our company if you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel. A special Control Panel section is dedicated to the data caching system and you can begin using Memcached for any Internet site hosted on the dedicated machine with only a few clicks of the mouse. You can increase the overall performance of any site, regardless of what script-powered app you’re using or how large the website is, as the minimum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to employ is 3 gigabytes and this amount grows tremendously with the higher-end dedicated servers. Shortly after the caching system is enabled, it will start caching info anytime someone accesses your site, so, once enough data has been cached, you’ll detect the reduced load on the server and the improved overall performance of the website. The Memcached caching system is being used by a lot of sites, among them popular portals like Zynga, Wikipedia and Reddit, which is a confirmation of the effectiveness of the caching system.
