Memcached is a distributed memory caching system, which has been gaining popularity lately owing to its efficiency. It’s used to cache requests and responses between a database and the app that’s using it, which can improve the overall performance of your site and reduce the produced load significantly. Anytime a webpage on an application-powered website is opened, the application connects to the database and "asks" what info should be shown, and then extracts it. With Memcached, these steps are omitted, as the platform has already cached the content that should appear on a given web page. If any data is updated, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the site visitors will never end up seeing old data. The platform is an excellent solution for every Internet site that draws plenty of visitors, as it will accelerate it and will improve the user experience.
Memcached in Shared Hosting
You can use the Memcached object caching system with all Linux shared hosting offered by us. It is available as an upgrade, which you can obtain with just a few clicks from your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. It needs a PHP extension, which is already installed on our cloud hosting platform, so you can begin using the Memcached caching system the moment you add it. The upgrade is separated into two parts, which will give you more freedom depending on the websites that you’d like to use it for. The first part shows the number of the websites that will use Memcached, or the so-called ‘instances’, whereas the second one refers to the memory, i.e. to how much content the system will be able to cache. You can get more memory in increments of 16 MB and the more memory you’ve ordered, the more data will be cached, which may be a pretty good idea for frequently visited sites with large-sized databases and numerous simultaneous visitors. Thus, you can boost the speed of any script-driven website hosted on our servers with ease.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you decide to host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you can take advantage of Memcached effortlessly, as the distributed memory object caching platform’s setup requires a few clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia Control Panel. The PHP extension that it requires is pre-installed on our semi-dedicated servers, so you can begin using the Memcached 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, in other words – there’re two different features that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the amount of memory. You can add more of both, so if one of your websites becomes extremely popular, for instance, you can always get more memory. Our system is pretty flexible in this regard and we do not bind a given number of instances to a fixed amount of memory. You can take advantage of the Memcached caching platform to improve the loading speed of any script-driven website, including those based on widely used web-based apps, such as Joomla or WordPress.
Memcached in VPS Hosting
You’ll get Memcached with each of the virtual private server packages that we’re offering in case you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel and you will be able to activate the object caching platform through the Control Panel section with the exact same name. The configuration takes several clicks of the mouse and you’ll notice the difference in the overall performance of your websites almost momentarily. The amount of system memory that the Memcached platform can employ to store content depends on the given Virtual Private Server package that you have selected, but in any case it will be at least several hundred MB, which is more than enough even for several large-size sites. You can use the Memcached platform with websites based on Joomla, WordPress or any other software app and decrease the load on your VPS, which will permit you to continue using the current plan rather than switching to a more powerful one, as you will simply not need it. Memcached is already being used by popular websites such as Wikipedia, Zynga and Reddit, which is an evidence of its effectiveness.
Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting
You can take advantage of the full potential of Memcached with every dedicated server offered by our company if you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel. A special section in it is dedicated to the data caching system and you can start using Memcached for any Internet site hosted on the server with only a few mouse clicks. You can increase the overall performance of any Internet site, regardless of what script-driven web app you are using or how busy the site is, as the minimum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to employ is 3 GB and this amount increases substantially with the more powerful servers. Shortly after the system is activated, it will begin caching data anytime someone browses your website, so, as soon as sufficient info has been cached, you will distinguish the reduced load and the optimized overall performance of your website. The Memcached caching system is used by a lot of sites, including famous portals such as Wikipedia, Reddit and Zynga, which demonstrates the efficiency of the caching system.
