Memcached is a memory caching system, which is used to increase the performance of database-powered websites by caching the queries and the replies between the user and the server. Put simply, every time a given page on such a website is requested, the script connects to its database to get the info that should be displayed to the visitor. If the latter clicks a hyperlink to open some other web page, the whole process is carried out again and this leads to multiple database queries and excessive load on the server, especially if the website has a lot of simultaneous visitors. Memcached "remembers" this exchange of information, so in case any of these web pages is visited again, the script no longer needs to extract any content from the database, as everything is delivered by the Memcached platform. Thus, the overall load speed of your site will increase and you will enjoy more pleased visitors and they’ll be able to browse your site much faster. Plus, Memcached "refreshes" its cache every time any info in the database is altered, so the site visitors will never see old data.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

You can make use of the Memcached memory caching system with all cloud plans offered by our company. It is offered as an upgrade, which you can order with only a couple of clicks of the mouse through your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. It needs an extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud platform, so you can begin using Memcached the moment you add it. The upgrade is separated into two parts, which will give you more freedom depending on the websites that you want to use it for. The first one indicates the number of the Internet sites that will use the Memcached caching system, or the ‘instances’, while the second one is related to the memory, in other words – to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can add more memory in increments of 16 MB and the more memory you’ve added, the more data will be cached, which may be a quite good idea for regularly visited sites with large-size databases and numerous concurrent visitors. In this way, you can enhance the overall performance of any script-driven Internet site hosted on our servers with ease.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can get the Memcached distributed memory caching system as an optional upgrade with all our semi-dedicated hosting plans and since it works with any script-based web application, you can use it for each Internet site that you host on our platform, irrespective of what application you have used – WordPress, Mambo or Joomla, a custom one, etc. You can add the upgrade through the respective section of the Hepsia Control Panel from which you administer your semi-dedicated server account, and you can select two separate things – the instances and the amount of memory that they will use. To put it simply, these things define how many Internet sites will use the Memcached caching system and the total amount of memory that the system will be able to use to store your content. The two features are ordered separately for more flexibility and one instance does not come with a particular amount of system memory. You can make use of the Memcached system with any kind of site and both you and your site visitors will quickly spot the difference in the performance.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

You can unlock the full potential of Memcached with each dedicated server that we offer if you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. A section in it is dedicated to the object caching system and you can start using Memcached for any Internet site hosted on the machine with just a few clicks of the mouse. You can enhance the overall performance of any website, no matter what script-based software app you rely on or how popular the website is, as the minimum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to use is three gigabytes and this amount rises immensely with the higher-end servers. Shortly after the system is activated, it will start caching info every time somebody opens your site, so, as soon as sufficient info has been stored, you’ll distinguish the lowered load on your dedicated machine and the improved performance of your website. The Memcached system is being used by many websites, including popular portals such as Zynga, Reddit and Wikipedia, which demonstrates the efficiency of the Memcached caching system.
