Memcached is a distributed memory object caching system, which is used to boost the overall performance of database-powered sites by caching the calls and the replies between the visitor and the server. In other words, every time a given web page on such a website is accessed, the script calls its database to request the information that should be displayed to the visitor. In case the latter clicks on a link to open a different web page, the entire operation is performed again and this leads to a lot of database requests and higher load on the server, even more so if the website has lots of simultaneous visitors. Memcached "memorizes" this exchange of information, so in case any of these web pages is visited again, the script no longer needs to cull any information from the database, as everything is provided by the Memcached platform. In this way, the overall loading speed of your website will "soar" and you’ll enjoy more pleased visitors and they’ll be able to surf through your site much faster. Moreover, the Memcached platform "refreshes" its cache every time any content in the database is modified, so the users will never see old content.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

You can make use of Memcached with all cloud hosting that we are offering. It is available as an upgrade, which you can get with only a couple of mouse clicks via your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. It requires an extension, which is already installed on our cloud web hosting platform, so you can start using the Memcached caching system the moment you order it. The upgrade is separated into two parts, which will offer you more flexibility depending on the sites that you’d like to use it for. The first one reveals the number of the websites that will use the Memcached caching system, or the ‘instances’, while the second one refers to the system memory, in other words – to how much content the system will be able to cache. You can get more system memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you have ordered, the more data will be cached, which may be a pretty good idea for heavy-traffic sites with large databases and numerous simultaneous visitors. In this way, you can accelerate the speed of every script-driven site hosted on our servers without efforts.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can add the Memcached content caching platform to any of the Linux semi-dedicated packages offered by us and make use of its full capacity for any script-driven site hosted by us. The upgrade is offered through the Hepsia Control Panel and you can select two features – the number of instances and the amount of system memory. These things indicate how many websites can use the Memcached caching platform and the amount of memory that it will use to store your information. You can select them separately, since one instance is not tied to a particular amount of system memory, so you can use plenty of memory for a single popular Internet site, for example. This upgrade is offered in increments of 16 MB and you can get as much memory as you want. The platform can be used with any script-driven website regardless of its nature, including those that are based on widely used apps like Drupal, WordPress or Joomla, and lots of companies like Zynga and Wikipedia are already using it to improve the overall performance of their websites.

Memcached in VPS Web Hosting

When you order a virtual private server from us, you’ll be able to use Memcached at no extra charge, as the content caching platform comes with all virtual servers ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Even if you own resource-requiring sites, you’ll be able to increase their performance effortlessly and the lowered load on your VPS server will enable you to continue using your current VPS package rather than moving to a more powerful one. The amount of memory that the Memcached caching platform can use to store data depends on the package that you are using, but even with a less powerful one, you’ll have no less than several hundred megabytes, which is considerably more than what you’d get with a shared hosting plan, so the website performance boost will be considerable. You can take advantage of Memcached with any database-driven application, irrespective of whether you have set it up yourself or you are using a ready-to-use one like WordPress, Joomla or OpenCart.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Each dedicated server ordered with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel comes with Memcached pre-installed by default, so you can start using the content caching system the moment the dedicated server is ready, without needing to upgrade or install anything. The amount of system memory that Memcached can use depends on the server that you’ve selected, but as our servers are rather powerful and due to the fact that it is likely that you’ll host resource-consuming websites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the caching system can use will be 3 GB. This will permit you to optimize the performance of extremely heavy Internet sites without effort and you’ll note the difference soon after the Memcached system starts caching database queries. You can make full use of the Memcached caching system with any database-powered portal, including those based on famous CMSs like WordPress and Joomla.
