Memcached is a memory caching platform, which is used to improve the speed of database-powered sites by caching the calls and the replies between the website visitor and the server. In other words, anytime a particular web page on such a website is visited, the script connects to its database to request the information that should be displayed to the website visitor. In case the latter clicks a link to go to a different page, the whole operation is performed again and this results in a lot of database requests and higher load on the server, especially if the website has a lot of concurrent visitors. Memcached "memorizes" this exchange of information, so if any of these pages is opened again, the script no longer needs to call any info from the database, as everything is provided by the Memcached platform. In this way, the overall load speed of your site will increase and you’ll get more pleased visitors and they’ll be able to browse your website faster. Additionally, Memcached "refreshes" its cache if any data in the database is edited, so the site users will never end up seeing out-of-date data.
Memcached in Cloud Hosting
Memcached is offered as an optional upgrade with each and every cloud hosting plan that we’re offering and in case you’d like to use it for any script-powered Internet site that you host on our avant-garde cloud web hosting platform, you will be able to activate it in a few easy steps through your Hepsia Control Panel. In the meantime, you will be given the option to upgrade two different features – the instances and the system memory. The first one is related to the number of the Internet sites that can use the Memcached distributed memory object caching system simultaneously, so if you need it for several sites, you can order a number of instances. The second one refers to the total amount of memory that Memcached will be allowed to use in order to cache info, so for plenty of websites (or for one single busy site), you may want to get more memory for better results. The memory is available in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be added every time you need it. With Memcached, each script-driven Internet site hosted on our cloud servers will load unbelievably fast.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you choose to host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to take advantage of Memcached with ease, since the platform’s activation requires several clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. The required extension is already installed on our semi-dedicated servers, so you can begin using the Memcached caching platform the moment you add it to your account. You’ll be able to choose how many Internet sites can use it and how much data it will cache, i.e. there’re two different features that can be upgraded – the instances and the system memory. You can get more of both, so if one of your websites becomes extremely popular, for example, you can always add more memory to it. Our system is really flexible in this regard and we do not bind a particular number of instances to a fixed amount of system memory. You can employ the Memcached platform to boost the speed of any script-powered website, including those based on widely used applications, such as WordPress or Joomla.
Memcached in VPS Web Hosting
Memcached is included by default with each and every virtual private server that we’re offering provided that you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel, so you will not need to pay anything extra to be able to use the full power of this memory caching system. The more powerful Virtual Private Server hosting package you choose, the more memory Memcached will have for content storage purposes, but you’ll have at least several hundred MB all the time, which is much more than what you would get with a shared hosting package. This will permit you to use the Memcached caching system for numerous sites, irrespective of how popular they are, which in turn goes to say that you can use a less powerful package for them without overloading your VPS server. The Memcached caching system is perfect for script-driven software apps like Joomla, WordPress, OpenCart or Mambo, and you can use it even with a custom app. Shortly after you activate the Memcached system, it will start storing information and you’ll detect the enhanced overall performance of your websites.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting
If you get any of our dedicated hosting services and if you select Hepsia as your web hosting Control Panel at signup, you’ll get the Memcached content caching platform by default and you can set it up for any site that you host on your server without upgrading or installing anything. It will start storing information as users access your site, so you will detect the results of using it soon thereafter. The minimum amount of system memory that will be available to the platform is 3 gigabytes and normally, the more powerful the dedicated plan, the more memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will allow you to take advantage of the caching platform for many sites or for a very busy Internet site without weakening its efficacy. Memcached will permit you to boost the load speed of any database-driven website in no time – a Joomla portal, a WordPress personal weblog, an OpenCart web shop, etc., and to improve the performance of your dedicated server.
