Memcached is a distributed memory object caching platform, which is used to supercharge the speed of database-driven Internet sites by caching the calls and the responses between the visitor and the server. To put it simply, anytime a certain page on such a site is visited, the script connects to its database to fetch the info that should be shown to the visitor. In case the latter clicks a hyperlink to go to another web page, the whole operation is repeated and this results in plenty of database calls and higher load on the server, especially if the site has lots of simultaneous visitors. Memcached "remembers" this information exchange, so in case any of these pages is requested again, the script no longer needs to call any content from the database, since everything is delivered by the Memcached platform. In this way, the overall speed of your site will "soar" and you will get more pleased visitors and they will be able to browse your site much faster. Plus, Memcached updates its cache every time any content in the database is modified, so the visitors will never end up seeing old data.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

If you host script-driven sites in a cloud hosting account with us, you can add the Memcached data caching system to your hosting package with just a few mouse clicks through your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantaneously and, since the extension required for it is already installed on our avant-garde cloud website hosting platform, you can begin using it straight away. To give you more flexibility, we offer two different upgrades related to the number of instances (i.e. how many Internet sites will use Memcached) and to the amount of system memory that the Memcached caching system will use. The latter is available in increments of 16 MB and you can order as much memory as you wish. Naturally, the more memory the Memcached caching system is permitted to use, the more content it will cache, so in case you own a traffic-consuming website with a lot of data, you may require more memory so as to be able to make the most of the power that Memcached can offer you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can add the Memcached memory caching platform to any of the semi-dedicated hosting offered by our company and make use of its full potential for any script-driven Internet site hosted by us. The upgrade is available through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can choose two features – the number of instances and the memory. These things specify the number of the sites that can use the Memcached caching platform and how much system memory it will use to cache your information. You can choose them separately, since a given instance is not linked to a particular amount of system memory, so you can use a lot of memory for one resource-consuming site, for example. This upgrade is offered in increments of 16 MB and you can get as much memory as you want. The Memcached platform can be used with any script-driven site irrespective of its type, including those based on widely used web apps like WordPress, Drupal or Joomla, and lots of companies like Zynga and Wikipedia are already using it to boost the loading speed of their sites.

Memcached in VPS Hosting

Memcached comes by default with each and every virtual private server offered by our company provided that you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel, so you will not have to pay any extra cash to be able to make the most of the full potential of this content caching system. The more powerful Virtual Private Server hosting plan you choose, the more memory Memcached will have for data storage purposes, but you’ll have at least several hundred MB all the time, which is much more than the amount of memory you’d get with a shared web hosting package. This will permit you to use Memcached for multiple sites, irrespective of how heavy they are, which in turn means that you can use a low-end package for them without overloading your VPS. The Memcached caching system is ideal for script-powered apps such as OpenCart, Joomla, WordPress or Mambo, and you can use it even with a custom-made app. Shortly after you enable the Memcached system, it will begin storing info and you’ll detect the enhanced performance of your sites.

Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting

If you acquire any of our dedicated web hosting and if you choose Hepsia as your website hosting Control Panel at signup, you will get the Memcached memory caching platform by default and you can enable it for each website that you host on your server without upgrading or installing anything. It will begin storing content as people visit your site, so you’ll detect the results of using it soon thereafter. The minimum amount of memory that will be available to the Memcached platform is 3 GB and naturally, the more powerful the plan, the more system memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will allow you to take advantage of the platform for numerous websites or for a very large site without compromising its efficiency. The Memcached caching platform will enable you to improve the speed of any database-driven website in no time – a Joomla portal, a WordPress personal weblog, an OpenCart e-shop, etc., and to boost the overall performance of your dedicated server.
