Memcached is a data caching platform, which has been gaining popularity lately thanks to its efficiency. It’s used to cache requests and replies between a database and the app that’s using it, which can accelerate the overall performance of your site and decrease the generated server load substantially. Anytime a webpage on an app-driven website is accessed, the application connects to the database and "asks" what info should be displayed, and then fetches it. With Memcached, these steps are skipped, since the platform has already cached the content that should be shown on a particular webpage. If any data is modified, the Memcached content is updated too, so the site visitors will never end up seeing out-of-date content. The Memcached platform is an ideal choice for every Internet site that draws plenty of visitors, since it will make it ultra-fast and will enhance the user experience.
Memcached in Shared Web Hosting
You can use the Memcached distributed memory object caching system with all shared web hosting plans that we are offering. It is offered as an upgrade, which you can enable with just a few clicks of the mouse via your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. It needs a PHP extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud web hosting platform, so you can start using the Memcached caching system once you add it. The upgrade is separated into two parts, which will give you more freedom depending on the sites that you would like to use it for. The first one defines the number of the Internet sites that will use Memcached, or the so-called ‘instances’, while the second one refers to the system memory, i.e. to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can add more system memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you’ve ordered, the more data will be cached, which may be a very good idea for popular websites with large-sized databases and numerous users. In this way, you can optimize the performance of every script-powered site hosted on our servers effortlessly.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you acquire one of our semi-dedicated server plans, you will find Memcached as an optional feature in the Upgrades section of your Hepsia Control Panel, so if you want to use it for any of the sites hosted in the semi-dedicated account, you can activate it with only a few mouse clicks. The distributed memory object caching platform is ideal for any script-based application such as WordPress, Joomla, or even a custom application, and depending on your needs, you will be able to select two different features – how many sites will use the Memcached platform, in other words – the number of instances; and how much information will be stored, i.e. the amount of memory that the platform will use. The two features are not tied to each other, so if you manage a popular website with a lot of content, you can order one instance and a large amount of system memory. The Memcached caching platform will boost the overall performance of your websites shortly after you activate it and both you and your site visitors will enjoy faster load speeds.
Memcached in VPS Servers
If you buy a VPS server from us, you’ll be able to use Memcached at no extra fee, as the content caching platform is available with all VPS servers ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Even if you’ve got content-heavy sites, you’ll be able to improve their performance without efforts and the lowered load will permit you to keep using your current VPS package instead of migrating to a more powerful one. The amount of system memory that the Memcached caching platform can use to cache information depends on the package that you’re using, but even with a low-end one, you’ll get at least several hundred megabytes, which is significantly more than what you’d get with a shared plan, so the website performance boost will be substantial. You can use Memcached with any database-powered web app, irrespective of whether you’ve developed it on your own or you’re using a ready-to-use one like OpenCart, WordPress or Joomla.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers
Memcached is available for free with all dedicated servers that we’re offering and the sole condition is that the dedicated server must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can use the distributed memory object caching system for any database-driven website, including those that are based on famous software applications – for instance, a WordPress weblog or a Joomla-powered community site. Each dedicated machine is tied to a given amount of system memory that the Memcached system can use, but the minimum you’ll get is three gigabytes, which is sufficient enough to enhance the load speed of extremely busy websites substantially, since this very memory will be dedicated to storing the cached content. The Memcached system will start caching data the moment it is activated, so shortly after that, you’ll detect the optimized overall performance of your Internet sites and the reduced load on the dedicated machine. Lots of Internet sites use the Memcached caching system to boost their efficacy, among them famous ones like Wikipedia and Reddit.
