Memcached is a caching system, which is used to increase the loading speed of database-driven Internet sites by caching the requests and the responses between the website visitor and the server. To put it simply, anytime a given page on such a website is visited, the script sends a database query to request the info that should be shown to the visitor. If the latter clicks a link to visit a different page, the entire operation is executed again and this generates a lot of database calls and high server load, particularly if the site has a lot of simultaneous visitors. Memcached "remembers" this exchange of information, so in case any of these web pages is visited again, the script no longer needs to call any information from the database, as everything is provided by the caching platform. Thus, the overall speed of your website will "soar" and you’ll get more satisfied visitors and they’ll be able to surf through your website faster. Also, the Memcached platform "refreshes" its cache if any data in the database is edited, so the users will never wind up seeing out-of-date data.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you choose to host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to take advantage of Memcached effortlessly, since the object caching platform’s setup takes a few clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The extension that is required is pre-installed on our servers, so you can begin using Memcached the moment you add it to your semi-dedicated server account. You will be able to select how many sites can use it and how much information it will cache, in other words – there’re two separate upgradable features – the number of instances and the system memory. You can order more of both, so if one of your sites becomes very busy, for example, you can always get more memory. Our system is extremely flexible in this regard and we do not tie a given number of instances to a fixed amount of memory. You can take advantage of Memcached to increase the speed of any script-driven Internet site, including those based on famous software apps, such as WordPress or Joomla.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting

When you purchase any of our Linux dedicated servers hosting and if you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel during the signup procedure, you will get the Memcached caching platform as standard and you can use it with any website that you host on the server without installing or upgrading anything. It will begin caching content as users access your website, so you will see the effect of using it soon after that. The minimum amount of memory that will be available to the Memcached caching platform is 3 gigabytes and normally, the more powerful the dedicate server package, the more memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will enable you to use the platform for multiple websites or for a very busy Internet site without compromising its efficacy. The Memcached platform will allow you to accelerate the load speed of any database-powered Internet site in no time – a Joomla portal, a WordPress weblog, an OpenCart web store, etcetera, and to enhance the overall performance of your dedicated machine.
