Memcached is a data caching platform, which has been gaining popularity in recent years because of its effectiveness. It’s used to cache requests and replies between a database and the application that is using it, which can increase the overall performance of your site and decrease the produced load immensely. Every time a page on an application-driven site is visited, the application connects to the database and "asks" what information should be shown, and then extracts it. With Memcached, these procedures are skipped, as the platform has already cached all the content that should be displayed on a particular web page. In case any data is changed, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ too, so the visitors will never end up seeing out-of-date data. Memcached is an ideal option for every Internet site that attracts lots of visitors, since it will make it astonishingly fast and will improve the overall user experience.
Memcached in Hosting
When you host script-driven sites in a hosting account with our company, you can add Memcached to your hosting package with only a few clicks through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantly and, since the PHP extension required for it is already installed on our avant-garde cloud website hosting platform, you can start using it right away. To give you more versatility, we offer two different upgrades related to the number of instances (in other words – how many sites will use Memcached) and to the amount of memory that Memcached will use. The latter is available in increments of 16 MB and you can add memory as many times as you want. Logically, the more memory the Memcached caching system is permitted to use, the more data it will cache, so if you run a larger website with lots of content, 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 Hosting
You can get the Memcached content caching system as an upgrade with all our semi-dedicated hosting services and since it works with any script-driven software application, you can use it for each website that you host on our semi-dedicated servers, regardless of what application you have used – WordPress, Joomla or Mambo, a custom-built application, etc. You can order the upgrade via the respective section of the Hepsia Control Panel from which you manage your semi-dedicated server account, and you can select two separate features – the instances and the amount of system memory that they will use. To put it simply, these things determine the number of the sites that will use the Memcached caching system and the total amount of memory that the system will be able to use in order to cache your info. The two things are offered separately for more flexibility and one instance does not come bundled with a pre-defined amount of memory. You can make use of the Memcached system with any type of site and both you and your site visitors will quickly distinguish the difference in the performance.
Memcached in VPS Web Hosting
Memcached comes by default with every virtual private server that we are offering as long as you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel, so you will not have to pay any extra money to be able to take advantage of the full potential of this memory caching system. The more powerful Virtual Private Server hosting plan you pick, the more memory Memcached will have for information storage purposes, but you’ll have no less than several hundred MB at all times, which is much more than the amount of memory you would get with a shared web hosting package. This will enable you to use the Memcached caching system for plenty of Internet sites, irrespective of how large they are, which in turn goes to say that you can use a lower-end package for them without overloading the virtual server. The Memcached caching system is suitable for script-powered software apps such as Joomla, OpenCart, WordPress or Mambo, and you can utilize it even with a custom app. Soon after you enable the Memcached system, it will start caching content and you’ll distinguish the improved overall performance of your sites.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting
Memcached is available free of charge with all dedicated servers hosting that we’re offering and the only requirement is that the dedicated machine must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can use the distributed memory object caching system for any database-driven website, including those that are based on famous web-based applications – for instance, a WordPress weblog or a Joomla-driven community site. Each dedicated server comes with a specific amount of memory that the Memcached caching system can employ, but the minimum you’ll get is three gigabytes, which is sufficient enough to boost the load speed of extremely heavy websites tremendously, as this memory will be dedicated to storing the cached information. The system will begin caching content once it is enabled, so shortly after that, you will observe the optimized overall performance of your websites and the lowered load on the server. Lots of websites use Memcached to boost their efficiency, among them popular ones such as Reddit and Wikipedia.
