Memcached is a memory caching platform, which is used to optimize the load speed of database-powered Internet sites by caching the calls and the responses between the user and the server. Put simply, every time a particular web page on such a website is accessed, the script queries its database to fetch the information that should be displayed to the website visitor. If the latter clicks a link to open a different web page, the entire procedure is carried out again and this generates multiple database requests and high load on the server, especially if the website has a lot of simultaneous visitors. Memcached "memorizes" this information exchange, so if any of these web pages is opened again, the script no longer has to pull any data from the database, as everything is provided by the Memcached platform. Thus, the overall speed of your site will increase and you’ll get more gratified visitors and they’ll be able to browse your site much faster. Additionally, Memcached updates its cache whenever any info in the database is updated, so the website users will never see out-of-date content.
Memcached in Shared Web Hosting
You can take advantage of the Memcached distributed memory caching system with all Linux shared web hosting packages offered by our company. It’s available as an optional upgrade, which you can enable with only a couple of mouse clicks through your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. It needs an extension, which is already installed on our cloud platform, so you can begin using the Memcached caching system as soon as you add it. The upgrade is divided into two parts, which will give you more freedom depending on the websites that you would like to use it for. The first part indicates the number of the Internet sites that will use Memcached, or the so-called ‘instances’, while the second one refers to the system memory, in other words – to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can get more system memory in increments of 16 MB and the more memory you’ve ordered, the more content will be cached, which may be a pretty good idea for traffic-intensive sites with very large databases and many visitors. In this way, you can boost the speed of any script-based site hosted on our servers without efforts.
Memcached in VPS Web Hosting
You’ll get Memcached with each of the virtual private server plans that we are offering in case you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to activate the distributed memory object caching platform via the Control Panel section with the very same name. The configuration takes several clicks of the mouse and you will see the difference in the overall performance of your Internet sites almost immediately. The amount of system memory that Memcached can employ to store data depends on the given Virtual Private Server hosting package that you’ve chosen, but in any case it will not be less than several hundred MB, which is quite enough even for multiple large sites. You can use the Memcached platform with Internet sites powered by Joomla, WordPress or any other software application and decrease the load on your Virtual Private Server, which will permit you to continue using the current Virtual Private Server hosting package rather than moving to a more powerful one, since you simply won’t need it. Memcached is already being used by famous websites like Wikipedia, Reddit and Zynga, which shows its efficacy.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting
You can make use of the full potential of Memcached with every dedicated server offered by our company if you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel. A special section in it is dedicated to the distributed memory object caching system and you can start using Memcached for any site hosted on the machine with only several clicks. You can increase the overall performance of any site, irrespective of what script-driven app you’re using or how popular the website is, as the minimum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to employ is three gigabytes and this amount rises immensely with the more powerful servers. Soon after the caching system is activated, it will begin caching content every time someone visits your site, so, as soon as sufficient info has been stored, you’ll perceive the lowered load on your dedicated machine and the enhanced performance of your Internet site. The Memcached system is being used by a lot of websites, among them famous portals such as Wikipedia, Zynga and Reddit, which proves the efficiency of the Memcached caching system.
