Memcached is a content caching system, which is used to boost the speed of database-powered websites by caching the queries and the replies between the website visitor and the server. Put simply, every time a specific page on such a site is opened, the script sends a query to its database to fetch the info that should be shown to the visitor. If the latter clicks on a hyperlink to visit a different page, the whole procedure is carried out again and this results in numerous database calls and excessive load on the server, especially if the site 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 request any info from the database, since everything is provided by the caching platform. Thus, the overall loading speed of your website will increase and you will enjoy more happy visitors and they will be able to navigate through your website much faster. Furthermore, Memcached updates its cache every time any data in the database is updated, so the visitors will never see out-of-date data.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

When you buy any of our Linux dedicated servers and if you pick Hepsia as your website hosting Control Panel on the order page, you’ll get the Memcached object caching platform by default and you can use it with any Internet site that you host on your server without upgrading or installing anything. It will begin storing info as users visit your Internet site, so you will notice the effect of using it shortly after that. The minimum amount of memory that will be available to the platform is three gigabytes and normally, the more powerful the dedicated package, the more memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will enable you to use the platform for lots of websites or for a very heavy website without weakening its effectiveness. The Memcached platform will enable you to accelerate the load speed of any database-powered Internet site in no time – a Joomla portal, a WordPress online journal, an OpenCart e-store, etcetera, and to optimize the performance of your dedicated server.
