Memcached is a data caching system, which has been gaining popularity in recent years due to its efficiency. It is used to cache requests and replies between a database and the application that’s using it, which can improve the performance of your Internet site and decrease the produced load significantly. Every time a web page on an app-powered Internet site is opened, the application connects to the database and "asks" what information should be shown, and then pulls it. With Memcached, these steps are omitted, since the platform has already cached all of the content that should be shown on a specific page. If any data is changed, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ too, so the website visitors will never see out-of-date data. The platform is a perfect option for every site that draws numerous visitors, as it will make it incredibly fast and will enhance the overall user experience.
Memcached in Hosting
If you host script-powered sites in a hosting account with our company, you can add the Memcached object caching system to your hosting package with only a few clicks through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available immediately and, since the required extension is already installed on our cutting-edge cloud website hosting platform, you can begin using it right away. To give you more flexibility, we offer two separate upgrades related to the number of instances (i.e. how many Internet sites will use Memcached) and to the amount of system memory that Memcached will use. The latter is available in increments of 16 MB and you can add as much memory as you wish. Logically, the more memory Memcached is permitted to use, the more data it will cache, so if you own a traffic-intensive website with lots of content, you may need more memory in order to be able to make full use of the power that Memcached can give you.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can add the Memcached content caching platform to any of the semi-dedicated hosting offered by our company and use its full potential for any script-driven Internet site hosted on our servers. The upgrade is offered through the Hepsia Control Panel and you can choose two things – the number of instances and the amount of system memory. These things define the number of the websites that can use the Memcached caching platform and the amount of memory that it will use to cache your data. You can choose them independently, since a given instance is not bound to a specific amount of system memory, so you can use plenty of memory for a single large-size Internet site, for example. This feature comes in increments of 16 MB and you can get as much memory as you wish. The Memcached platform can be used with any script-driven site irrespective of its type, including those that are based on popular web-based applications like WordPress, Joomla or Drupal, and many companies like Wikipedia and Zynga are already using it to improve the overall performance of their websites.
Memcached in VPS
Memcached is included by default with each virtual private server that we’re offering as long as you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel, so you will not have to pay any extra cash to be able to take advantage of the maximum capacity of this object caching system. The more powerful Virtual Private Server plan you select, the more memory Memcached will have for content storage purposes, but you’ll have at least several hundred megabytes all the time, which is much more than the amount of memory you’d get with a shared web hosting package. This will enable you to use the Memcached caching system for plenty of sites, no matter how popular they are, which in turn means that you can use a low-end plan for them without overloading the server. The caching system is suitable for script-driven applications like WordPress, OpenCart, Joomla or Mambo, and you can utilize it even with a custom-developed app. Soon after you activate Memcached, it will start storing info and you’ll see the improved performance of your websites.
Memcached in Dedicated Hosting
When you buy one of our dedicated hosting and if you select Hepsia as your website hosting Control Panel during the signup procedure, you’ll get the Memcached platform by default and you can enable it for each site that you host on the dedicated machine without installing or upgrading anything. It will begin caching content as users visit your Internet site, so you will see the effects of using it soon after that. The minimum amount of system memory that will be available to the Memcached caching platform is three gigabytes and normally, the more powerful the dedicated plan, the more memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will enable you to use the platform for numerous Internet sites or for a very popular website without weakening its efficacy. The Memcached caching platform will permit you to boost the load speed of any database-powered website very quickly – a Joomla portal, a WordPress personal weblog, an OpenCart e-store, etcetera, and to enhance the performance of your dedicated server.
