Memcached is a data caching platform, which is used to supercharge the overall performance of database-powered sites by caching the calls and the replies between the user and the server. To put it differently, anytime a particular web page on such a site is accessed, the script sends a database query to request the info that should be shown to the website visitor. If the latter clicks on a link to visit a different page, the whole process is executed again and this leads to plenty of database queries and higher load on the server, particularly if the site has lots of simultaneous visitors. Memcached "remembers" this exchange of information, so in case any of these web pages is requested again, the script no longer needs to request any data from the database, as everything is delivered by the Memcached platform. In this way, the overall loading speed of your website will "soar" and you will have more gratified visitors and they will be able to navigate through your website much faster. At the same time, Memcached updates its cache every time any information in the database is updated, so the site visitors will never see outdated content.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

If you host script-powered websites in a cloud hosting account with our company, you can add the Memcached memory caching system to your shared hosting package with only a few clicks of the mouse via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available momentarily and, since the necessary extension is already installed on our leading-edge cloud platform, you can begin using it right away. To give you more versatility, we offer two different upgrades related to the number of instances (in other words – how many sites will use Memcached) and to the memory that Memcached will use. The latter comes in increments of 16 megabytes and you can add memory as many times as you need. Logically, the more memory Memcached is permitted to use, the more content it will cache, so in case you manage a traffic-intensive website with lots of content, you may require more memory to be able to make the most of the power that Memcached can offer you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you choose to host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you can take advantage of Memcached effortlessly, since the object caching platform’s setup requires several clicks 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 choose how many sites can use it and how much data can be cached, i.e. there’re two different upgradable features – the number of instances and the amount of system memory. You can order more of both, so if one of your sites becomes very popular, for instance, you can always order more memory. Our system is amazingly flexible in this regard and we do not bind a particular number of instances to a pre-defined amount of memory. You can use the Memcached caching platform to accelerate any script-driven site, including those based on widely used software apps, such as WordPress or Joomla.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting

When you obtain one of our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages and if you choose Hepsia as your web hosting Control Panel during the signup process, you will get the Memcached data caching platform as standard and you can activate it for any website that you host on the dedicated server without installing or upgrading anything. It will begin caching content as users open your website, so you’ll detect the results of using it shortly after that. The minimum amount of system memory that will be available to the Memcached caching platform is 3 gigabytes and naturally, the more powerful the dedicate server plan, the more memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will enable you to use the platform for multiple Internet sites or for a very large site without compromising its efficiency. Memcached will permit you to boost the loading speed of any database-driven website very quickly – a Joomla portal, a WordPress blog, an OpenCart e-store, etc., and to enhance the overall performance of your dedicated machine.
