Memcached is an object caching platform, which is used to accelerate the load speed of database-driven Internet sites by caching the requests and the replies between the visitor and the server. To put it in simple terms, anytime a given page on such a website is accessed, the script calls its database to request the information that should be displayed to the visitor. In case the latter clicks on a link to open a different page, the whole procedure is repeated and this leads to lots of database calls and excessive server load, even more so if the site has a lot of simultaneous visitors. Memcached "memorizes" this information exchange, so in case any of these web pages is requested again, the script no longer needs to pull any content from the database, since everything is delivered by the Memcached platform. Thus, the overall speed of your site will increase and you’ll enjoy more happy visitors and they’ll be able to navigate through your website faster. Additionally, Memcached updates its cache every time any data in the database is changed, so the site visitors will never see out-of-date data.
Memcached in Cloud Website Hosting
Memcached is available as an optional upgrade with each cloud website hosting account that we are offering and if you want to use it for any script-based Internet site that you host on our cutting-edge cloud website hosting platform, you’ll be able to activate it in a few easy steps via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. In the meantime, you’ll get the option to upgrade two different features – the instances and the system memory. The first one refers to the number of the Internet sites that can use Memcached at the same time, so if you need it for several sites, you can get a number of instances. The second one has to do with the maximum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to use to cache data, so for lots of websites (or for one traffic-consuming site), you’d better order more memory for better results. The memory is available in increments of 16 MB and more memory can be added at any moment. With the Memcached caching system, every script-driven website hosted on our servers will load blazing-fast.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can add Memcached to any of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we’re offering and make use of its full capacity for any script-powered Internet site hosted by us. The upgrade is offered through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can choose two things – the number of instances and the amount of system memory. These things define the number of the websites that can use Memcached and the amount of memory that it will use to store your content. You can choose them independently, since one instance is not linked to a specific amount of memory, so you can use a lot of memory for a single frequently visited Internet site, for instance. This upgrade is offered in increments of 16 MB and you can get as much memory as you need. The Memcached platform can be used with any script-powered website regardless of its nature, including those based on widespread web apps like WordPress, Joomla or Drupal, and plenty of companies such as Wikipedia and Zynga are already using it to accelerate the overall performance of their websites.
Memcached in VPS Web Hosting
When you acquire a virtual private server from our company, you’ll be able to use Memcached at no additional price, as the distributed memory object caching platform comes with all servers ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Even if you own data-heavy websites, you will be able to boost their performance with no effort and the reduced load on the VPS will enable you to continue using your current VPS hosting plan instead of switching to a more powerful one. The amount of system memory that Memcached can use to store info depends on the plan that you are using, but even with a lower-end one, you will have at least several hundred MB, which is considerably more than the amount of memory you’d get with a shared plan, so the website performance boost will be great. You can take advantage of Memcached with any database-driven web app, irrespective of whether you’ve built it yourself or you are using a ready-made one such as Joomla, WordPress or OpenCart.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting
You can unlock the full potential of Memcached with each dedicated server offered by us if you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. A special Control Panel section is dedicated to the caching system and you can begin using Memcached for any site hosted on the dedicated server with just a couple of clicks. You can optimize the performance of any website, regardless of what script-based app you rely on or how heavy the Internet site is, as the minimum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to employ is 3 GB and this amount rises enormously with the higher-end dedicated servers. Shortly after the system is enabled, it will begin caching content each time someone opens your website, so, once sufficient information has been stored, you will detect the decreased load on the dedicated server and the improved overall performance of your website. The Memcached system is being used by a lot of sites, including famous portals such as Zynga, Reddit and Wikipedia, which is a proof of the effectiveness of the Memcached system.
