Memcached is a distributed memory caching system, which is used to supercharge the speed of database-powered Internet sites by caching the calls and the responses between the website visitor and the server. In other words, anytime a given web page on such a website is opened, the script sends a query to its database to get the info that should be shown to the website visitor. If the latter clicks a hyperlink to visit some other page, the whole procedure is executed again and this generates multiple database queries and excessive load on the server, especially if the website has a lot of simultaneous visitors. Memcached "memorizes" this exchange of information, so in case any of these web pages is visited again, the script no longer has to request any data from the database, as everything is provided by the caching platform. In this way, the overall load speed of your website will "soar" and you will enjoy more happy visitors and they will be able to surf through your site faster. Also, the Memcached platform updates its cache whenever any content in the database is altered, so the users will never wind up seeing out-of-date data.
Memcached in Cloud Web Hosting
Memcached comes as an optional upgrade with each and every cloud web hosting
plan that we are offering and if you would like to use it for any script-based site that you host on our leading-edge cloud platform, you’ll be able to order it in several easy steps through your Hepsia Control Panel. During the process, you will be given the option to upgrade two separate things – the instances and the memory. The first one is related to the number of the websites that can use the Memcached distributed memory object caching system at the same time, so if you need it for several sites, you can order a number of instances. The second one refers to the maximum amount of memory that Memcached will be permitted to use to cache info, so for plenty of sites (or for one single large-sized site), you may want to order more memory for improved performance. The memory is available in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be added every time you need it. With the Memcached caching system, each script-based Internet site hosted on our cloud servers will load extra-fast.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you choose to host your websites in a semi-dedicated server
account, you will be able to take advantage of Memcached with ease, since the platform’s activation requires a few clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The required PHP extension is pre-installed on our servers, so you can start using Memcached as soon as you add it to your semi-dedicated server account. You’ll be able to choose how many sites can use it and how much info can be cached, i.e. there are two different features that can be upgraded – the instances and the amount of system memory. You can order more of both, so if one of your Internet sites becomes extremely popular, for instance, you can always order more memory. Our system is exceptionally flexible in this regard and we don’t bind a specific number of instances to a fixed amount of system memory. You can take advantage of the Memcached caching platform to improve the loading speed of any script-driven site, including those based on widely used web applications, such as Joomla™
Memcached in VPS Web Hosting
Memcached is included by default with each virtual private server
that we’re offering on the condition that you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel, so you will not have to pay anything extra to be able to make the most of the maximum potential of this memory caching system. The more powerful Virtual Private Server plan you pick, the more memory Memcached will have for data storage purposes, but you will have no less than several hundred MB at all times, which is much more than what you would get with a shared plan. This will enable you to use Memcached for a lot of Internet sites, no matter how busy they are, which in turn means that you can use a low-end package for them without overloading your virtual server. The Memcached caching system is suitable for script-powered apps such as OpenCart, WordPress, Joomla™
or Mambo, and you can utilize it even with a custom-built app. Shortly after you activate the Memcached caching system, it will start caching info and you’ll perceive the improved performance of your websites.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting
If you obtain any of our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages
and if you choose Hepsia as your web hosting Control Panel during the order process, you’ll get the Memcached memory caching platform as standard and you can use it with each site that you host on the dedicated server without upgrading or installing anything. It will begin storing data as users open your website, so you will see the results of using it soon thereafter. The minimum amount of system memory that will be available to the caching platform is 3 GB and normally, the more powerful the dedicated plan, the more system memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will permit you to use the platform for numerous Internet sites or for a very large website without compromising its efficacy. Memcached will allow you to enhance the load speed of any database-powered Internet site very quickly – a Joomla™
portal, a WordPress personal journal, an OpenCart store, etc., and to improve the overall performance of your dedicated server.
