Memcached is a content caching system, which has been gaining in popularity lately because of its efficiency. It’s used to cache queries and replies between a database and the application that uses it, which can improve the performance of your site and lessen the produced server load drastically. Anytime a web page on an app-driven Internet site is opened, the app connects to the database and "asks" what information should be displayed, and then fetches it. With Memcached, these steps are skipped, since the platform has already cached all of the content that should be displayed on a specific webpage. If any data is changed, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the website visitors will never see out-of-date content. The platform is a perfect option for every website that draws plenty of visitors, as it will make it lightning-fast and will improve the overall user experience.
Memcached in Hosting
The Memcached object caching system is offered as an optional upgrade with each hosting service offered by our company and you’ll be able to begin using it the moment you activate it, as the PHP extension that it needs in order to perform properly is already available on our innovative cloud website hosting platform. You can order the upgrade via the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with every web hosting package and a brand-new section where you can manage Memcached will appear. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts – the instances and the amount of memory, so as to give you more versatility. The first one refers to the number of the websites that can use Memcached, while the second, which comes in increments of 16 MB, determines the maximum size of the content that the system can cache. A heavy-traffic site with a large-size database may need more memory in order to take an even greater advantage of Memcached, so in case you’d like to upgrade this feature, you will be able to do it at any time with a few mouse clicks.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you choose to host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to take advantage of Memcached effortlessly, since the distributed memory object caching platform’s activation requires a couple of clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia Control Panel. The extension that it requires is pre-installed on our servers, so you can begin using the Memcached caching platform the moment you add it to your account. You will be able to choose how many Internet sites can use it and how much content it will cache, in other words – there are two different upgradable features – the number of instances and the amount of system memory. You can add more of both, so if one of your sites becomes extremely popular, for instance, you can always order more memory. Our system is really flexible in this regard and we don’t tie a specific number of instances to a fixed amount of system memory. You can take advantage of the Memcached platform to boost the loading speed of any script-powered website, including those based on famous software applications, such as Joomla or WordPress.
Memcached in VPS Web Hosting
You will get Memcached with each of the virtual private server plans that we are offering when you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel and you will be able to activate the data caching platform via the section with the same name. The configuration takes a couple of clicks of the mouse and you will distinguish the difference in the overall performance of your sites almost immediately. The amount of memory that the Memcached caching platform can take advantage of to store data depends on the particular VPS hosting package that you have picked, but at any rate it will be at least several hundred MB, which is quite enough even for multiple content-heavy sites. You can use the Memcached platform with websites based on WordPress, Joomla or any other web-based app and decrease the load on your server, which will allow you to continue using the current VPS hosting package instead of upgrading to a more powerful one, since you will simply not need it. Memcached is already being used by famous websites like Reddit, Wikipedia and Zynga, which verifies its efficacy.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting
You can take advantage of the full potential of Memcached with each and every dedicated server offered by us if you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel. A section in it is dedicated to the distributed memory object caching system and you can begin using Memcached for any site hosted on the server with only several clicks of the mouse. You can optimize the performance of any website, irrespective of what script-driven web application you are using or how large the site is, since the minimum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to use is three gigabytes and this amount grows significantly with the more powerful dedicated servers. Shortly after the system is enabled, it will start caching data every time somebody accesses your site, so, once enough content has been cached, you’ll perceive the decreased server load and the optimized overall performance of the website. Memcached is used by numerous websites, among them popular portals such as Reddit, Wikipedia and Zynga, which shows the efficiency of the Memcached caching system.
