Memcached is a memory caching system, which is used to enhance the load speed of database-powered Internet sites by caching the queries and the responses between the user and the server. Put simply, anytime a particular page on such a website is accessed, the script sends a query to its database to request the info that should be displayed to the visitor. If the latter clicks on a link to open a different page, the whole process is carried out again and this leads to plenty of database queries and excessive load on the server, especially if the site has lots of concurrent visitors. Memcached "memorizes" this information exchange, so if any of these web pages is visited again, the script no longer has to fetch any content from the database, as everything is delivered by the Memcached platform. In this way, the overall loading speed of your website will increase and you’ll enjoy more gratified visitors and they will be able to navigate through your website much faster. In addition, Memcached "refreshes" its cache every time any content in the database is edited, so the website users will never wind up seeing old data.

Memcached in Shared Hosting

You can take advantage of the Memcached distributed memory object caching system with all Linux shared hosting service that we offer. It is available as an optional upgrade, which you can activate with only a few clicks via your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. It requires an extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud hosting platform, so you can begin using Memcached once you order it. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts, which will give you more versatility depending on the websites that you would like to use it for. The first one indicates the number of the Internet sites that will use Memcached, or the ‘instances’, while the second one refers to the memory, i.e. to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can get more memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you’ve got, the more data will be cached, which may be a rather good idea for busy websites with large databases and numerous users. In this way, you can boost the performance of any script-driven site hosted on our cloud servers without any effort.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you decide to host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to take advantage of Memcached with ease, as the object caching platform’s setup takes a few mouse clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. The PHP extension that is required is already installed on our semi-dedicated servers, so you can start using the Memcached caching platform the moment you add it to your semi-dedicated server account. You’ll be able to choose how many Internet sites can use it and how much information can be cached, i.e. there are two separate features that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the system memory. You can add more of both, so if one of your Internet sites becomes very busy, for example, you can always add more memory to it. Our system is extremely flexible in this regard and we don’t bind a given number of instances to a pre-defined amount of memory. You can employ the Memcached caching platform to boost the loading speed of any script-driven Internet site, including those based on famous software applications, such as WordPress or Joomla.

The amount of memory that the Memcached platform can take advantage of to store content depends on the given Virtual Private Server hosting package that you’ve picked, but at any rate it will be at least several hundred megabytes, which is quite enough even for multiple resource-consuming sites. You can use the Memcached platform with sites powered by Joomla, WordPress or any other web-based application and lower the load on your Virtual Private Server, which will enable you to continue using the current VPS plan rather than switching to a more powerful one, as you simply won’t need it. The Memcached platform is already being used by famous websites such as Zynga, Wikipedia and Reddit, which is a confirmation of its effectiveness.
