Find out what Memcached is and precisely why more and more people utilize it for their databases.
Memcached is a content caching platform, which is used to supercharge the overall performance of database-powered Internet sites by caching the calls and the replies between the user and the server. To put it in simple terms, every time a given page on such a website is visited, the script calls its database to request the info that should be shown to the website visitor. In case the latter clicks a link to go to a different page, the whole procedure is carried out again and this generates lots of database requests and excessive load on the server, especially if the site has lots of simultaneous visitors. Memcached "remembers" this exchange of information, so in case any of these web pages is requested again, the script no longer needs to request any information from the database, since everything is provided by the caching platform. Thus, the overall loading speed of your site will increase and you will get more pleased visitors and they will be able to browse your website much faster. Moreover, the Memcached platform updates its cache if any information in the database is altered, so the visitors will never see out-of-date data.
Memcached in Cloud Hosting
You can make use of the Memcached distributed memory caching system with all Linux cloud hosting service
that we are offering. It’s offered as an optional upgrade, which you can order with just a few 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 as soon as you add it. The upgrade is divided into two parts, which will offer you more freedom depending on the Internet sites that you want to use it for. The first part determines the number of the Internet sites that will use Memcached, or the so-called ‘instances’, while the second one is related to the memory, i.e. to how much content the system will be able to cache. You can add more system memory in increments of 16 MB and the more memory you’ve got, the more data will be cached, which may be a very good idea for traffic-intensive websites with very large databases and plenty of simultaneous visitors. Thus, you can boost the speed of every script-based site hosted on our cloud servers without any efforts.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you order one of our semi-dedicated server
plans, you will find Memcached as an optional upgrade in the Upgrades section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so if you’d like to use it for any of the sites hosted in your account, you can activate it with just a couple of clicks of the mouse. The distributed memory object caching platform is perfect for any script-driven web app such as WordPress, Joomla™
, or even a custom-developed application, and depending on your requirements, you’ll be able to select two separate features – how many Internet sites will use Memcached, in other words – the number of instances; and how much information will be stored, in other words – the amount of system memory that the platform will employ. The two things are not tied to each other, so if you have a traffic-heavy Internet site with a lot of content, you can get one instance and a larger amount of memory. The Memcached caching platform will improve the overall performance of your Internet sites soon after you activate it and both you and your website visitors will enjoy much better load times.

You can use Memcached with websites powered by WordPress, Joomla™
or any other application and reduce the load on your server, which will allow you to continue using the current VPS plan instead of migrating to a more powerful one, since you simply won’t need it.

A section in it is dedicated to the caching system and you can start using Memcached for any Internet site hosted on the machine with just several clicks of the mouse. You can optimize the overall performance of any site, no matter what script-based software application you’re using or how popular the site is, as the minimum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to employ is three gigabytes and this amount grows seriously with the more powerful servers. Soon after the system is enabled, it will begin caching info anytime somebody browses your website, so, once enough content has been cached, you’ll distinguish the reduced load on the dedicated machine and the enhanced overall performance of the website. The Memcached caching system is being used by numerous websites, including popular portals like Wikipedia, Zynga and Reddit, which is an evidence of the efficiency of the Memcached system.
