Memcached is a caching platform, which has been gaining in popularity lately due to its effectiveness. It is used to cache calls and replies between a database and the application that uses it, which can enhance the performance of your website and decrease the created load immensely. Anytime a web page on an application-driven website is visited, the application connects to the database and "asks" what info should be shown, and then pulls it. With Memcached, these steps are omitted, as the platform has already cached all of the content that should show up on a particular webpage. When any data is modified, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the site visitors will never see out-of-date content. The platform is an excellent solution for every site that entices numerous visitors, since it will increase its loading speed and will improve the user experience.
Memcached in Cloud Website Hosting
You can use the Memcached data caching system with all cloud website hosting that we are offering. It is available as an upgrade, which you can activate with only a couple of clicks of the mouse from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It needs an extension, which is already installed on our cloud hosting platform, so you can begin using the Memcached caching system once you order it. The upgrade is divided into two parts, which will offer you more freedom depending on the websites that you’d like to use it for. The first one defines the number of the websites that will use Memcached, 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 add more memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you’ve added, the more content will be cached, which may be a rather good idea for frequently visited sites with large-sized databases and a lot of users. In this way, you can optimize the performance of every script-driven website hosted on our servers without any effort.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you decide to host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you can take advantage of Memcached with ease, as the distributed memory object caching platform’s activation takes a couple of mouse clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. The required PHP extension is already installed on our servers, so you can start using Memcached as soon as you add it to your account. You will be able to select how many sites can use it and how much content it will cache, i.e. there’re two separate features that can be upgraded – the instances and the memory. You can order more of both, so if one of your sites becomes very popular, for instance, you can always get more memory. Our system is stunningly flexible in this regard and we don’t tie a particular number of instances to a pre-defined amount of memory. You can employ the Memcached caching platform to increase the loading speed of any script-driven website, including those based on widely used web apps, such as Joomla or WordPress.
Memcached in VPS Servers
Memcached comes by default with each VPS server that we are offering as long as you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel, so you won’t have to pay any extra cash to be able to use the full potential of this memory caching system. The more powerful VPS hosting plan you select, the more system memory Memcached will have for content caching purposes, but you will have no less than several hundred MB at all times, which is much more than what you would get with a shared package. This will enable you to use the Memcached system for a lot of Internet sites, regardless of how large they are, which in turn means that you can use a less powerful package for them without overloading your virtual machine. The Memcached caching system is perfect for script-driven software apps such as WordPress, Joomla, OpenCart or Mambo, and you can use it even with a custom-created app. Shortly after you activate Memcached, it will begin caching info and you will note the improved performance of your sites.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers
Memcached comes free of charge with all dedicated servers offered by us and the sole condition is that the dedicated machine must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. You can use the object caching system for any database-driven website, including those that are based on famous apps – for example, a WordPress blog or a Joomla-driven community portal. Each dedicated server comes with a particular amount of memory that the Memcached caching system can use, but the minimum amount you’ll get is three gigabytes, which is sufficient enough to accelerate the loading speed of very popular websites considerably, since this memory will be dedicated to storing the cached data. The system will begin storing info as soon as it’s activated, so soon after that, you’ll observe the optimized overall performance of your websites and the lowered load on the dedicated machine. Numerous Internet sites use the Memcached system to enhance their efficiency, including popular ones such as Wikipedia and Reddit.
