Memcached is a distributed memory object caching platform, which is used to accelerate the load speed of database-driven sites by caching the queries and the replies between the user and the server. To put it differently, every time a particular page on such a website is accessed, the script calls its database to get the info that should be displayed to the website visitor. In case the latter clicks on a link to go to another web page, the entire operation is carried out again and this leads to a lot of database queries and high load on the server, especially if the site has lots of simultaneous visitors. Memcached "remembers" this exchange of information, so in case any of these pages is opened again, the script no longer has to extract any content from the database, since everything is provided by the Memcached platform. Thus, the overall loading speed of your site will "soar" and you will enjoy more satisfied visitors and they’ll be able to browse your website faster. At the same time, the Memcached platform updates its cache when any content in the database is altered, so the website visitors will never end up seeing old data.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

Memcached is offered as an upgrade with each and every cloud hosting plan that we are offering and in case you wish to use it for any script-driven website that you host on our cutting-edge cloud platform, you’ll be able to order it in several easy steps via your Hepsia Control Panel. During the process, you will be offered the option to upgrade two different features – the number of instances and the system memory. The first one is related to the number of the sites that can use Memcached at the same time, so if you need it for several Internet sites, you can get a number of instances. The second one refers to the total amount of memory that Memcached will be permitted to use to cache info, so for multiple sites (or for one single traffic-intensive site), you should get more memory for better results. The memory comes in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be ordered at any moment. With the Memcached caching system, every script-based website hosted on our servers will open unbelievably fast.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can add the Memcached memory caching platform to any of the Linux semi-dedicated packages that we’re offering and use its full capacity for any script-powered website hosted on our servers. The upgrade is offered through the Hepsia Control Panel and you can choose two features – the instances and the system memory. These things indicate the number of the sites that can use Memcached and how much system memory it will use to cache your data. You can select them separately, since one instance is not tied to a particular amount of system memory, so you can use lots of memory for a single large-scale Internet site, for example. This upgrade is available in increments of 16 MB and you can get as much memory as you want. The platform can be used with any script-powered website regardless of its type, including those based on widespread web apps like Joomla, WordPress or Drupal, and a lot of companies such as Wikipedia and Zynga are already using it to boost the overall performance of their websites.

Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting

You can make use of the full potential of Memcached with each and every dedicated server that we offer in case you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel. A section in it is dedicated to the memory caching system and you can begin using Memcached for any Internet site hosted on the dedicated server with only several clicks of the mouse. You can increase the performance of any website, regardless of what script-powered software application you rely on or how busy the Internet site is, as the minimum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to use is 3 gigabytes and this amount rises considerably with the more powerful dedicated servers. Soon after the system is activated, it will begin caching info anytime somebody opens your website, so, as soon as enough information has been stored, you will notice the lowered load on your dedicated server and the improved overall performance of your Internet site. Memcached is being used by lots of sites, including famous portals such as Zynga, Reddit and Wikipedia, which is an evidence of the effectiveness of the Memcached system.
