Memcached is a data caching platform, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years because of its effectiveness. It is used to cache requests and responses between a database and the app that’s using it, which can boost the overall performance of your website and reduce the created load immensely. Anytime a webpage on an application-powered website is opened, the application connects to the database and "asks" what info should be displayed, and then fetches it. With Memcached, these procedures are skipped, as the platform has already cached the content that should appear on a given page. If any content is updated, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ too, so the visitors will never see out-of-date data. Memcached is a perfect solution for every site that has many visitors, since it will increase its speed and will improve the user experience.
Memcached in Web Hosting
The Memcached object caching system is offered as an upgrade with each and every Linux web hosting service
offered by us and you’ll be able to begin using it once you order it, as the PHP extension that it needs in order to perform correctly is already present on our leading-edge cloud website hosting platform. You can request the upgrade through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with each and every web hosting package and a new Control Panel section where you can administer Memcached will appear. The upgrade is separated into two parts – the instances and the system memory, so as to offer you more freedom. The first one refers to the number of the sites that can use Memcached, while the second one, which is available in increments of 16 megabytes, determines the total size of the content that the system can cache. A regularly visited Internet site with a large database may need more memory so as to take an even bigger advantage of Memcached, so in case you wish to upgrade this service, you will be able to do it at any given moment with a couple of clicks of the mouse.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can get the Memcached caching system as an upgrade with each of our semi-dedicated hosting
and since it works with any script-powered software app, you can use it for each website that you host on our semi-dedicated servers, no matter what app you have used – Joomla™
, Mambo or WordPress, a custom-built application, etc. You can add the upgrade through the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel from which you administer your semi-dedicated account, and you can select two separate features – the number of instances and the amount of memory that they will use. In simple terms, these things determine the number of the sites that will use Memcached and the maximum amount of system memory that the system will be able to use to cache your data. The two things are offered separately for more flexibility and one instance does not come with a particular amount of memory. You can make the most of the Memcached system with any sort of site and both you and your website visitors will swiftly distinguish the difference in the performance.
Memcached in VPS Web Hosting
Memcached is included by default with each virtual private server
that we are offering provided that you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel, so you will not need to pay anything extra to be able to take advantage of the power of this distributed memory caching system. The more powerful VPS plan you pick, the more memory Memcached will have for information storage purposes, but you will have no less than several hundred MB at all times, which is much more than the amount of memory you’d get with a shared hosting plan. This will allow you to use Memcached for multiple Internet sites, no matter how large they are, which in turn goes to say that you can use a lower-end plan for them without overloading the virtual machine. The Memcached caching system is perfect for script-driven web applications like WordPress, Joomla™
, OpenCart or Mambo, and you can use it even with a custom-made app. Shortly after you activate the Memcached system, it will start caching info and you’ll perceive the optimized performance of your sites.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting
You can use the full potential of Memcached with each and every dedicated server
that we offer in case you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. A section in it is dedicated to the content caching system and you can start using Memcached for any website hosted on the machine with only a couple of clicks of the mouse. You can boost the overall performance of any site, regardless of what script-driven application you are using or how popular the site is, since the minimum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to employ is 3 gigabytes and this amount increases substantially with the higher-end dedicated servers. Soon after the caching system is activated, it will begin caching data each time someone browses your website, so, as soon as sufficient content has been stored, you will notice the lowered load on your dedicated machine and the enhanced overall performance of the website. The Memcached caching system is being used by plenty of sites, among them famous portals such as Zynga, Reddit and Wikipedia, which demonstrates the effectiveness of the Memcached caching system.
