Memcached is a distributed memory object caching system, which has been gaining popularity lately due to its efficiency. It is used to cache requests and replies between a database and the application that’s using it, which can enhance the overall performance of your website and reduce the produced server load drastically. Every time a page on an app-driven site is visited, the application connects to the database and "asks" what information should be displayed, and then pulls it. With Memcached, these procedures are skipped, since the platform has already cached all of the content that should show up on a specific page. If any data is edited, the Memcached content is updated too, so the visitors will never end up seeing out-of-date data. The Memcached platform is a perfect solution for any Internet site that draws numerous visitors, as it will make it truly fast and will improve the overall user experience.
Memcached in Cloud Web Hosting
You can take advantage of the Memcached memory caching system with all Linux cloud web hosting services
that we are offering. It’s available as an upgrade, which you can order with only a couple of clicks of the mouse through your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. It needs a PHP extension, which is already installed on our cloud web hosting platform, so you can start using Memcached the moment you add it. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts, which will offer you more versatility depending on the sites that you want to use it for. The first one concerns the number of the websites that will use Memcached, or the so-called ‘instances’, whereas the second one refers to the system memory, in other words – to how much content the system will be able to cache. You can add more system memory in increments of 16 MB and the more memory you’ve got, the more data will be cached, which may be a quite good idea for busy sites with large-size databases and numerous users. In this way, you can optimize the loading speed of any script-driven Internet site hosted on our servers with ease.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you acquire any of our semi-dedicated server
packages, you will find Memcached as an optional feature in the Upgrades part of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so if you wish to use it for any of the sites hosted in your account, you can activate it with only a few clicks. The memory caching platform is suitable for any script-powered web application like WordPress, Joomla™
, or even a custom-built application, and based on your demands, you will be able to select two separate features – how many sites will use the Memcached caching platform, in other words – the number of instances; and how much info will be cached, i.e. the amount of memory that the platform will employ. The two things are not bound to each other, so if you’ve got a traffic-intensive site with a lot of content, you can get one instance and a larger amount of memory. The Memcached platform will accelerate the overall performance of your sites soon after you activate it and both you and your website visitors will enjoy faster loading times.
Memcached in VPS Web Hosting
You’ll get Memcached with any of the virtual private server
packages that we offer in case you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel and you will be able to activate the platform through the Control Panel section with the very same name. The activation requires a few mouse clicks and you’ll notice the difference in the overall performance of your sites almost instantaneously. The amount of system memory that the Memcached platform can take advantage of to cache information depends on the given Virtual Private Server hosting plan that you’ve picked, but at any rate it will not be less than several hundred MB, which is more than enough even for multiple busy Internet sites. You can use Memcached with websites driven by WordPress, Joomla™
or any other software app and lower the load on your server, which will allow you to continue using the current VPS plan instead of upgrading to a more powerful one, as you will simply not need it. The Memcached platform is already being used by popular websites like Wikipedia, Reddit and Zynga, which verifies its efficacy.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting
You can make use of the full potential of Memcached with every dedicated server
that we’re offering if you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel. A special Control Panel section is dedicated to the object caching system and you can start using Memcached for any site hosted on the dedicated machine with only several clicks. You can boost the overall performance of any site, regardless of what script-based software application you are using or how large the site is, as the minimum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to employ is 3 GB and this amount rises immensely with the higher-end dedicated servers. Soon after the system is activated, it will begin caching info anytime someone visits your site, so, once enough info has been stored, you will notice the decreased load on your server and the improved performance of your website. The Memcached caching system is used by numerous sites, among them popular portals such as Wikipedia, Zynga and Reddit, which is a confirmation of the effectiveness of the Memcached system.
