Memcached is a distributed memory caching system, which is used to boost the speed of database-driven websites by caching the queries and the responses between the website visitor and the server. To put it simply, anytime a particular web page on such a website is accessed, the script connects to its database to fetch the information that should be displayed to the visitor. In case the latter clicks on a hyperlink to open another page, the whole process is performed again and this leads to plenty of database queries and excessive server load, particularly if the site has a lot of concurrent visitors. Memcached "remembers" this exchange of information, so if any of these pages is visited again, the script no longer has to request any content from the database, as everything is provided by the Memcached platform. In this way, the overall loading speed of your website will increase and you will enjoy more pleased visitors and they will be able to surf through your site much faster. Additionally, the Memcached platform "refreshes" its cache if any information in the database is changed, so the site visitors will never see outdated data.
Memcached in Cloud Web Hosting
Memcached is available as an optional upgrade with each cloud web hosting
package that we offer and in case you wish to use it for any script-based Internet site that you host on our cutting-edge cloud website hosting platform, you will be able to enable it in several easy steps through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. In the meantime, you will be given the option to upgrade two separate features – the instances and the memory. The first one refers 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 Internet sites, you can get a number of instances. The second one refers to the maximum amount of memory that Memcached will be allowed to use to cache information, so for numerous websites (or for one frequently visited site), you should order more memory for better results. The memory is available 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 servers will load unbelievably fast.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can get the Memcached distributed memory caching system as an optional upgrade with each of our Linux semi-dedicated packages
and since it works with any script-powered app, 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-developed one, etc. You can request the upgrade through the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel from which you manage your semi-dedicated server account, and you can select two different features – the instances and the amount of system memory that they will use. To put it in simple terms, these things show how many sites will use the Memcached caching system and the maximum amount of memory that the system will be able to use in order to cache your information. The two things are ordered independently for more freedom and one instance does not come bundled with a particular amount of memory. You can make the most of Memcached with any type of site and both you and the website visitors will quickly notice the difference in the performance.
Memcached in VPS Hosting
Memcached is offered by default with each and every virtual private server
offered by us as long as you select Hepsia as your Control Panel, so you will not have to pay any extra cash to be able to take advantage of the potential of this data caching system. The more powerful Virtual Private Server package you pick, the more system memory Memcached will have for information storage purposes, but you’ll have at least several hundred MB all the time, which is much more than the amount of memory you would get with a shared package. This will enable you to use Memcached for numerous sites, regardless of how popular they are, which in turn goes to say that you can use a low-end package for them without overloading the virtual machine. The caching system is ideal for script-driven web applications like Joomla™
, OpenCart, WordPress or Mambo, and you can utilize it even with a custom app. Soon after you enable the Memcached caching system, it will start caching content and you will observe the optimized performance of your websites.
Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting
Memcached comes free of charge with all Linux dedicated servers hosting packages
offered by us and the sole condition is that the dedicated machine must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can use the content caching system for any database-driven website, including those based on popular applications – for instance, a WordPress weblog or a Joomla™
-driven community website. Each server is tied to a different amount of memory that the Memcached caching system can use, but the minimum amount you’ll get is 3 GB, which is sufficient enough to speed up extremely large websites noticeably, as this memory will be dedicated to storing the cached information. The Memcached system will start caching data the moment it’s enabled, so shortly thereafter, you’ll notice the optimized overall performance of your Internet sites and the decreased load on your server. Numerous Internet sites use Memcached to increase their effectiveness, including popular ones such as Wikipedia and Reddit.
