Memcached is a data caching system, which has been gaining popularity in recent years thanks to its effectiveness. It is used to cache requests and replies between a database and the app that uses it, which can boost the performance of your Internet site and lessen the produced load considerably. Anytime a page on an app-driven Internet site is opened, the application connects to the database and "asks" what info should be shown, and then drags it. With Memcached, these steps are skipped, since the platform has already cached the content that should be displayed on a specific webpage. When any content is changed, the Memcached content is updated as well, so the visitors will never end up seeing outdated content. The Memcached platform is an ideal solution for every site that attracts lots of visitors, since it will make it lightning-fast and will improve the user experience.
Memcached in Cloud Hosting
Memcached is available as an upgrade with each cloud hosting offered by us and you will be able to start using it once you activate it, since the PHP extension that it requires so as to run properly is pre-installed on our innovative cloud website hosting platform. You can request the upgrade via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes bundled with every web hosting plan and a brand-new section where you can administer Memcached will show up. The upgrade is divided into two parts – the instances and the system memory, so as to offer you more freedom. The first one shows the number of the Internet sites which can use the Memcached caching system, whereas the second, which is offered in increments of 16 MB, specifies the total size of the content that can be cached by the system. A popular website with a large-sized database may need more memory to take an even bigger advantage of Memcached, so if you want to upgrade this service, you will be able to do it at any given point with a few clicks of the mouse.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you get any of our semi-dedicated server plans, you’ll 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 websites hosted in your account, you can activate it with just a few mouse clicks. The content caching platform is suitable for any script-driven application like WordPress, Joomla, or even a custom app, and depending on your demands, you’ll be able to select two separate things – how many sites will use the Memcached caching platform, in other words – the number of instances; and how much information will be cached, in other words – the amount of memory that the platform will use. The two things are not tied to each other, so if you run a traffic-consuming site with a lot of content, you can order one instance and a larger amount of system memory. The Memcached caching platform will improve the overall performance of your sites shortly after you enable it and both you and your visitors will enjoy faster load times.
Memcached in VPS Servers
Memcached is offered by default with each and every VPS server that we are offering on the condition that you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel, so you won’t need to pay any extra cash to be able to make the most of the maximum potential of this distributed memory object caching system. The more powerful Virtual Private Server hosting plan you pick, the more memory Memcached will have for content caching purposes, but you’ll have no less than several hundred MB all the time, which is much more than what you’d get with a shared web hosting package. This will enable you to use the Memcached caching system for a lot of sites, no matter how popular they are, which in turn means that you can use a less powerful package for them without overloading your VPS. The caching system is ideal for script-based apps such as WordPress, OpenCart, Joomla or Mambo, and you can use it even with a custom-built app. Shortly after you enable Memcached, it will begin storing data and you’ll observe the optimized overall performance of your websites.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers
Memcached is available free of charge with all dedicated servers that we’re offering and the sole condition is that the dedicated server must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. You can use the distributed memory caching system for any database-powered website, including those that are based on popular web apps – for instance, a WordPress blog or a Joomla-driven community web portal. Each dedicated machine is tied to a specific amount of memory that Memcached can employ, but the minimum you’ll get is three gigabytes, which is quite enough to boost the speed of extremely busy websites enormously, as this very memory will be dedicated to storing the cached info. The Memcached system will begin storing info as soon as it is enabled, so soon after that, you’ll detect the improved overall performance of your sites and the reduced load on your dedicated machine. Lots of sites use the Memcached caching system to enhance their effectiveness, among them famous ones like Reddit and Wikipedia.
