Memcached is an object caching platform, which is used to optimize the performance of database-driven websites by caching the calls and the replies between the user and the server. To put it differently, anytime a certain page on such a website is accessed, the script queries its database to request the info that should be shown to the visitor. If the latter clicks a link to go to some other web page, the entire operation is executed again and this leads to numerous database requests and higher server load, especially if the website has lots of simultaneous visitors. Memcached "memorizes" this exchange of information, so if any of these web pages is visited again, the script no longer has to request any information from the database, since everything is provided by the Memcached platform. In this way, the overall loading speed of your website will "soar" and you will have more pleased visitors and they will be able to browse your website much faster. In addition, the Memcached platform "refreshes" its cache when any content in the database is edited, so the users will never see old data.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

Memcached is offered as an upgrade with each and every cloud hosting account offered by our company and if you’d like to use it for any script-based Internet site that you host on our advanced cloud web hosting platform, you’ll be able to order it in several simple steps via your Hepsia Control Panel. During the process, you will get the option to upgrade two different features – the instances and the system memory. The first one refers to the number of the sites that can use the Memcached object caching system simultaneously, so if you need it for several websites, you can get a handful of instances. The second one has to do with the maximum amount of memory that Memcached will be permitted to use to cache data, so for plenty of websites (or for one frequently visited site), you should order more memory for better results. The memory comes in increments of 16 MB and more memory can be added every time you need it. With Memcached, any script-driven Internet site hosted on our cloud servers will open lightning-fast.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can get the Memcached distributed memory caching system as an upgrade with all our Linux semi-dedicated hosting and since it works with any script-based application, you can use it for each Internet site that you host on our platform, irrespective of what application you have used – Joomla, Mambo or WordPress, a custom-developed app, etc. You can request the upgrade through the respective section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel from which you administer your semi-dedicated account, and you can choose two different features – the number of instances and the amount of memory that they will use. In other words, these things show the number of the Internet sites that will use the Memcached system and how much system memory the system will be able to use to cache your information. The two things are ordered separately for more freedom and one instance does not come bundled with a particular amount of system memory. You can take full advantage of Memcached with any kind of site and both you and the site visitors will quickly detect the difference in the overall performance.

Memcached in Dedicated Hosting

You can unlock the full potential of Memcached with each and every dedicated server offered by us in case you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. A section in it is dedicated to the memory caching system and you can start using Memcached for any Internet site hosted on the dedicated machine with just a couple of clicks. You can accelerate the overall performance of any Internet site, regardless of what script-powered software application you’re using or how heavy the site is, as the minimum amount of system memory that Memcached will be able to employ is 3 GB and this amount increases enormously with the higher-end dedicated servers. Soon after the system is activated, it will begin caching information every time someone browses your site, so, once sufficient information has been cached, you’ll distinguish the lowered load and the improved performance of your website. The Memcached caching system is being used by lots of sites, including popular portals like Zynga, Wikipedia and Reddit, which verifies the efficiency of the Memcached caching system.
