Memcached is a distributed memory object caching platform, which has been gaining in popularity lately due to its effectiveness. It’s used to cache requests and replies between a database and the app that uses it, which can accelerate the performance of your website and decrease the produced load immensely. Every time a page on an app-powered website is visited, the application connects to the database and "asks" what info should be displayed, and then pulls it. With Memcached, these steps are omitted, since the platform has already cached the content that should be displayed on a specific page. If any content is changed, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ too, so the visitors will never end up seeing old data. Memcached is an ideal option for every site that draws a lot of visitors, as it will make it faster than the speed of sound and will improve the overall user experience.
Memcached in Hosting
When you host script-powered websites in a hosting account with our company, you can add the Memcached caching system to your hosting plan with only a few clicks of the mouse from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantly and, since the needed extension is pre-installed on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform, you can begin using it straight away. To give you more versatility, we offer two separate upgrades related to the number of instances (i.e. how many sites will use Memcached) and to the memory that the Memcached caching system will use. The latter comes in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order as much memory as you need. Naturally, the more memory the Memcached caching system is permitted to use, the more content it will cache, so if you manage a larger website with a lot of content, you may require more memory to be able to take advantage of the power that Memcached can offer you.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can add the Memcached data caching platform to any of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting plans that we’re offering and make use of its full potential for any script-powered Internet site hosted on our servers. The upgrade is accessible through the Hepsia Control Panel and you can select two things – the number of instances and the memory. These things determine how many sites can use the Memcached platform and how much system memory it will use to cache your information. You can choose them separately, since a given instance is not tied to a specific amount of memory, so you can use a lot of memory for a single traffic-heavy Internet site, for instance. This feature is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and you can get as much memory as you want. The platform can be used with any script-powered website regardless of its nature, including those that are based on widely used web apps like Joomla, WordPress or Drupal, and many companies like Wikipedia and Zynga are already using it to improve the overall performance of their sites.
Memcached in VPS Servers
If you obtain a VPS server from us, you will be able to use Memcached at no extra charge, as the data caching platform is available with all servers ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. Even if you manage content-heavy websites, you’ll be able to increase their performance effortlessly and the reduced load on the server will enable you to keep your current plan rather than upgrading to a more powerful one. The amount of memory that the Memcached caching platform can use to cache information depends on the package that you are using, but even with a lower-end one, you will get at least several hundred MB, which is considerably more than the amount of memory you’d get with a shared hosting plan, so the website performance boost will be serious. You can take advantage of Memcached with any database-powered application, no matter if you have created it on your own or you are using a ready-for-use one such as OpenCart, WordPress or Joomla.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers
Memcached is available for free with all dedicated web hosting plans that we’re offering and the one and only condition is that the dedicated machine must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can use the caching system for any database-powered website, including those based on widely used web-based apps – for example, a WordPress weblog or a Joomla-powered community website. Each server comes with a particular amount of memory that the Memcached system can employ, but the minimum you’ll get is three gigabytes, which is sufficient enough to accelerate the speed of very heavy sites significantly, as this very memory will be dedicated to storing the cached content. The system will start caching data once it is activated, so shortly thereafter, you will observe the improved overall performance of your Internet sites and the decreased server load. A lot of Internet sites use Memcached to improve their efficiency, among them famous ones like Wikipedia and Reddit.
