Memcached is a content caching platform, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years thanks to its effectiveness. It is used to cache requests and responses between a database and the app that’s using it, which can improve the overall performance of your website and reduce the created server load immensely. Anytime a web page on an app-powered website is accessed, the app connects to the database and "asks" what info should be shown, and then fetches it. With Memcached, these procedures are skipped, since the platform has already cached the content that should appear on a specific web page. In case any data is modified, the Memcached content is updated too, so the site visitors will never see out-of-date data. The platform is an ideal choice for any Internet site that lures plenty of visitors, since it will make it load much faster and will enhance the user experience.
Memcached in Shared Hosting
You can take advantage of the Memcached data caching system with all shared hosting that we are offering. It’s offered as an optional upgrade, which you can add with just a couple of clicks of the mouse from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It needs a PHP extension, which is already installed on our cloud website hosting platform, so you can begin using Memcached as soon as you order it. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts, which will offer you more freedom depending on the websites that you would like to use it for. The first one defines the number of the Internet sites that will use the Memcached caching system, or the ‘instances’, while the second one is related to the memory, i.e. to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can get more memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you have, the more content will be cached, which may be a pretty good idea for heavy-traffic sites with large databases and lots of simultaneous visitors. Thus, you can boost the speed of any script-driven site hosted on our servers without efforts.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you acquire any of our semi-dedicated server plans, you will find Memcached as an optional upgrade in the Upgrades part of your Hepsia Control Panel, so if you would like to use it for any of the Internet sites hosted in the semi-dedicated server hosting account, you can add it with just a few clicks of the mouse. The distributed memory object caching platform is perfect for any script-driven software application such as Joomla, WordPress, or even an in-house made app, and depending on your demands, you’ll be able to select two separate features – how many Internet sites will use the Memcached caching platform, in other words – the number of instances; and how much content will be stored, in other words – the amount of system memory that the platform will employ. The two features are not tied to each other, so if you run a frequently visited site with lots of data, you can get one instance and a large amount of memory. The Memcached platform will optimize the overall performance of your Internet sites soon after you enable it and both you and your visitors will enjoy better loading speeds.
Memcached in VPS Servers
You’ll get Memcached with any of the VPS server packages offered by our company when you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel and you will be able to activate the data caching platform via the Control Panel section with the very same name. The activation requires several mouse clicks and you will detect the difference in the overall performance of your sites almost momentarily. The amount of memory that the Memcached caching platform can employ to store information depends on the particular VPS hosting plan that you have selected, but at any rate it will not be less than several hundred megabytes, which is quite enough even for several regularly visited Internet sites. You can use the Memcached platform with sites based on Joomla, WordPress or any other web app and decrease the load on your Virtual Private Server, which will enable you to keep using the current Virtual Private Server hosting package instead of upgrading to a more powerful one, since you will simply not need it. The Memcached platform is already being used by famous websites like Reddit, Zynga and Wikipedia, which is a confirmation of its efficiency.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers
You can unlock the full potential of Memcached with each and every dedicated server that we are offering if you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. A section in it is dedicated to the memory caching system and you can begin using Memcached for any site hosted on the dedicated machine with just a couple of clicks. You can enhance the overall performance of any website, irrespective of what script-driven app you’re using or how popular the Internet site is, as the minimum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to use is three gigabytes and this amount grows considerably with the higher-end servers. Shortly after the caching system is enabled, it will begin caching data anytime somebody visits your website, so, once sufficient data has been cached, you will see the reduced server load and the optimized performance of your Internet site. The Memcached system is being used by plenty of sites, including popular portals such as Zynga, Wikipedia and Reddit, which proves the efficiency of the Memcached system.
