Memcached is a caching platform, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years owing to its effectiveness. It is used to cache queries and replies between a database and the app that uses it, which can improve the performance of your Internet site and lessen the produced server load substantially. Every time a web page on an application-powered site is accessed, the application connects to the database and "asks" what info should be shown, and then extracts it. With Memcached, these procedures are skipped, as the platform has already cached the content that should be displayed on a specific webpage. In case any content is edited, the Memcached content is updated as well, so the site visitors will never see old content. The platform is an ideal solution for any website that entices lots of visitors, since it will boost its loading speed and will improve the user experience.
Memcached in Cloud Website Hosting
When you host script-based sites in a cloud website hosting account with our company, you can add the Memcached distributed memory object caching system to your shared hosting package with only a couple of clicks through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available immediately and, since the necessary extension is already installed on our advanced cloud web hosting platform, you can begin using it straight away. To give you more versatility, we offer two separate upgrades related to the number of instances (i.e. how many sites will use Memcached) and to the system memory that the Memcached caching system will use. The latter is offered in increments of 16 MB and you can order memory as many times as you need. Naturally, the more memory the Memcached caching system is allowed to use, the more data it will cache, so if you own a regularly visited site with lots of data, you may require more memory so as to be able to make the most of the power that Memcached can give you.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can add the Memcached data caching platform to any of the semi-dedicated servers that we offer and make use of its full capacity for any script-powered website hosted by us. The upgrade is available through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can select two features – the number of instances and the amount of system memory. These things indicate the number of the websites that can use the Memcached caching platform and the amount of memory that it will use to cache your content. You can select them separately, since one instance is not tied to a fixed amount of memory, so you can use plenty of memory for one busy website, for example. This upgrade is available in increments of 16 MB and you can order as much memory as you want. The Memcached platform can be used with any script-driven website irrespective of its nature, including those that are based on widespread Internet applications like Joomla, WordPress or Drupal, and lots of companies such as Wikipedia and Zynga are already using it to boost the overall performance of their sites.
Memcached in VPS Servers
Memcached comes by default with each VPS server that we’re offering on the condition that you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel, so you will not need to pay any extra money to be able to make the most of the potential of this content caching system. The more powerful VPS hosting package you choose, the more memory Memcached will have for content caching purposes, but you’ll have at least several hundred MB all the time, which is much more than what you’d get with a shared hosting plan. This will allow you to use the Memcached system for multiple Internet sites, irrespective of how popular they are, which in turn goes to say that you can use a less powerful plan for them without overloading the virtual machine. The caching system is perfect for script-based software apps such as OpenCart, Joomla, WordPress or Mambo, and you can use it even with a custom-developed app. Shortly after you activate the Memcached system, it will begin caching data and you’ll detect the improved performance of your sites.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers
Memcached is available free of charge with all dedicated servers offered by our company and the one and only requirement is that the server must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. You can use the object caching system for any database-powered site, including those that are based on widely used software apps – for example, a WordPress online blog or a Joomla-powered social networking website. Each server is tied to a given amount of memory that the Memcached system can employ, but the minimum you will get is 3 gigabytes, which is quite enough to optimize the loading speed of very heavy sites enormously, since this very memory will be dedicated to storing the cached content. The system will start storing data the moment it is activated, so soon thereafter, you will observe the improved overall performance of your Internet sites and the decreased load on the dedicated server. A lot of Internet sites use the Memcached system to boost their effectiveness, among them popular ones such as Reddit and Wikipedia.
