Memcached is a memory caching system, which has been gaining popularity in recent years due to its effectiveness. It is used to cache queries and responses between a database and the app that is using it, which can increase the performance of your Internet site and lessen the generated server load considerably. Anytime a web page on an application-powered Internet site is visited, the app connects to the database and "asks" what information should be displayed, and then pulls it. With Memcached, these steps are skipped, since the platform has already cached all of the content that should show up on a specific web page. In case any content is edited, the Memcached content is updated as well, so the users will never end up seeing old data. The Memcached platform is a perfect solution for any website that has lots of viewers, as it will make it amazingly fast and will enhance the user experience.
Memcached in Shared Hosting
If you host script-powered websites in a shared hosting account with us, you can add the Memcached caching system to your hosting plan with just a few mouse clicks via your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantaneously and, since the PHP extension needed for it is pre-installed on our avant-garde cloud hosting platform, you can begin using it right away. To give you more versatility, we offer two different upgrades related to the number of instances (i.e. how many sites will use Memcached) and to the amount of memory that the Memcached caching system will use. The latter is available in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order memory as many times as you want. Naturally, the more memory Memcached is permitted to use, the more data it will cache, so in case you have a traffic-intensive site with lots of content, you may require more memory so as to be able to take advantage of the power that Memcached can offer you.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you choose to host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to take advantage of Memcached effortlessly, as the distributed memory object caching platform’s setup requires a couple of clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. The required extension is already installed on our servers, so you can start using Memcached the moment you add it to your semi-dedicated server account. You will be able to choose how many Internet sites can use it and how much info can be cached, i.e. there are two different upgradable features – the instances and the system memory. You can order more of both, so if one of your sites becomes very busy, for instance, you can always order more memory. Our system is stunningly flexible in this regard and we do not bind a particular number of instances to a pre-defined amount of system memory. You can use the Memcached platform to increase the loading speed of any script-driven site, including those based on popular software applications, such as WordPress or Joomla.
Memcached in VPS Servers
You will get Memcached with any of the VPS server packages that we are offering if you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to activate the data caching platform through the Control Panel section with the exact same name. The configuration takes a few clicks and you will see the difference in the overall performance of your Internet sites almost instantaneously. The amount of system memory that the Memcached platform can use to cache data depends on the particular Virtual Private Server hosting plan that you have picked, but in any case it won’t be less than several hundred MB, which is quite enough even for multiple resource-hungry Internet sites. You can use Memcached with Internet sites driven by Joomla, WordPress or any other application and reduce the load on your VPS, which will allow you to keep using the current Virtual Private Server plan instead of switching to a more powerful one, since you simply won’t need it. Memcached is already being used by famous websites like Wikipedia, Zynga and Reddit, which shows its efficacy.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers
Memcached is available for free with all dedicated servers offered by our company and the one and only condition is that the dedicated server must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. You can use the object caching system for any database-driven site, including those based on popular Internet apps – for example, a WordPress personal blog or a Joomla-driven social network. Each dedicated server comes with a certain amount of system memory that the Memcached system can use, but the minimum amount you’ll get is 3 gigabytes, which is sufficient enough to boost the loading speed of extremely heavy websites considerably, as this very memory will be dedicated to storing the cached info. The system will begin caching content as soon as it’s enabled, so soon after that, you’ll distinguish the enhanced performance of your websites and the reduced load on the dedicated machine. Lots of Internet sites use the Memcached system to boost their effectiveness, including popular ones like Reddit and Wikipedia.
