Memcached is a data caching platform, which is used to optimize the overall performance of database-powered Internet sites by caching the calls and the responses between the visitor and the server. To put it in simple terms, every time a given page on such a site is accessed, the script calls its database to get the information that should be displayed to the visitor. If the latter clicks on a hyperlink to visit another web page, the whole process is carried out again and this results in lots of database calls and excessive server load, even more so if the site has lots of concurrent visitors. Memcached "remembers" this information exchange, so if any of these pages is visited again, the script no longer has to pull any data from the database, as everything is provided by the caching platform. Thus, the overall loading speed of your site will increase and you will enjoy more satisfied visitors and they will be able to surf through your site much faster. Additionally, Memcached updates its cache every time any information in the database is updated, so the users will never end up seeing outdated content.
Memcached in Cloud Website Hosting
Memcached comes as an optional upgrade with each cloud website hosting plan offered by our company and if you wish to use it for any script-driven website that you host on our innovative cloud website hosting platform, you will be able to order it in a couple of simple steps via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. In the meantime, you’ll be offered 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 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 total amount of memory that Memcached will be able to use to cache info, so for multiple websites (or for one large-size site), you’d better get more memory for better results. The memory comes in increments of 16 MB and more memory can be added at any time. With Memcached, any script-powered Internet site hosted on our cloud servers will open blazing-fast.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you purchase any of our semi-dedicated server packages, you’ll find Memcached as an optional feature in the Upgrades section of your Hepsia Control Panel, so if you’d like to use it for any of the sites hosted in the semi-dedicated server hosting account, you can add it with just a few mouse clicks. The memory caching platform is suitable for any script-based application such as Joomla, WordPress, or even a tailor-made application, and depending on your demands, you’ll be able to select two different things – how many sites will use Memcached, i.e. the number of instances; and how much information will be cached, in other words – the amount of system memory that the platform will use. The two things are not tied to each other, so if you manage a traffic-heavy website with a lot of data, you can order one instance and a larger amount of system memory. The Memcached platform will accelerate the overall performance of your sites shortly after you enable it and both you and your website visitors will enjoy much better loading times.
Memcached in VPS
Memcached is included by default with each virtual private server that we offer if you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel, so you will not have to pay any extra cash to be able to take advantage of the maximum potential of this caching system. The more powerful Virtual Private Server plan you select, the more system memory Memcached will have for information storage purposes, but you will have no less than several hundred MB at all times, which is much more than the amount of memory you’d get with a shared package. This will permit you to use Memcached for many Internet sites, irrespective of how heavy they are, which in turn goes to say that you can use a lower-end plan for them without overloading the virtual machine. The Memcached caching system is ideal for script-powered software applications such as Joomla, WordPress, OpenCart or Mambo, and you can utilize it even with a custom-made app. Shortly after you activate the Memcached caching system, it will begin storing information and you will observe the enhanced performance of your websites.
Memcached in Dedicated Hosting
If you purchase one of our dedicated hosting and if you choose Hepsia as your web hosting Control Panel during the order process, you’ll get the Memcached content caching platform by default and you can activate it for each Internet site that you host on your dedicated server without installing or upgrading anything. It will begin storing info as people access your Internet site, so you’ll see the result of using it soon after that. The minimum amount of memory that will be available to the caching platform is 3 GB and naturally, the more powerful the dedicated plan, the more system memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will allow you to take advantage of the platform for numerous sites or for a very large website without weakening its effectiveness. The Memcached platform will allow you to accelerate any database-driven Internet site in no time – a Joomla portal, a WordPress personal journal, an OpenCart e-store, etcetera, and to enhance the overall performance of your dedicated server.
