Memcached is a distributed memory object caching platform, which has been gaining popularity lately because of its effectiveness. It’s used to cache calls and replies between a database and the app that uses it, which can improve the overall performance of your Internet site and reduce the generated server load substantially. Anytime a webpage on an app-driven site is opened, the application connects to the database and "asks" what information should be displayed, and then pulls it. With Memcached, these steps are omitted, as the platform has already cached all the content that should show up on a given web page. When any content is modified, the Memcached content is updated as well, so the site visitors will never see out-of-date data. Memcached is an excellent solution for every Internet site that has many visitors, since it will make it really fast and will enhance the user experience.
Memcached in Shared Hosting
Memcached comes as an optional upgrade with each and every shared hosting plan offered by our company and in case you wish to use it for any script-powered website that you host on our avant-garde cloud web hosting platform, you’ll be able to enable it in a couple of simple steps via your Hepsia Control Panel. During the process, you will be given the option to upgrade two different things – the number of instances and the memory. The first one is related to the number of the sites that can use the Memcached distributed memory caching system simultaneously, so if you need it for several sites, you can get a handful of instances. The second one has to do with the maximum amount of memory that the system will be allowed to use in order to cache info, so for multiple websites (or for one popular site), you should get more memory for better performance. The memory is offered in increments of 16 MB and more memory can be added every time you need it. With the Memcached caching system, each script-driven site hosted on our servers will load incredibly fast.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you purchase one of our semi-dedicated server plans, you’ll find Memcached as an optional upgrade in the Upgrades part of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so if you wish to use it for any of the websites hosted in the semi-dedicated account, you can enable it with only a few clicks. The caching platform is suitable for any script-powered software app such as Joomla, WordPress, or even a custom application, and depending on your needs, you will be able to select two different features – how many websites will use the Memcached caching platform, in other words – the number of instances; and how much content will be cached, in other words – the amount of system memory that the platform will employ. The two things are not bound to each other, so if you own a frequently visited site with a lot of content, you can get one instance and a larger amount of memory. The Memcached platform will optimize the overall performance of your Internet sites shortly after you enable it and both you and your website visitors will enjoy better loading times.
Memcached in VPS Hosting
Memcached is available by default with all Linux VPS hosting services ordered with our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The PHP extension it needs in order to work properly is compiled when the server is configured, so you can begin using the data caching platform the moment your brand-new VPS server is fully functional. The memory that Memcached can employ depends on the given Virtual Private Server plan, but even with the less powerful plans, you’ll get several hundred megabytes that will be at your disposal exclusively for this platform. This will allow you to accelerate the performance of numerous websites hosted on the server at the same time and to decrease the load on the machine even if you have traffic-hungry script-based web portals with plenty of visitors. The platform can be used with any script – Joomla, Drupal or Mambo, or a custom-built one, and you will notice the faster performance shortly after you start using it.
Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting
You can unleash the full potential of Memcached with each dedicated server that we offer in case you select Hepsia as your Control Panel. A special section in it is dedicated to the memory caching system and you can begin using Memcached for any Internet site hosted on the machine with only a few clicks. You can enhance the overall performance of any Internet site, no matter what script-based application you are using or how large the site is, since the minimum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to use is 3 gigabytes and this amount grows considerably with the higher-end dedicated servers. Soon after the caching system is enabled, it will start caching content anytime somebody accesses your site, so, as soon as enough info has been cached, you will distinguish the reduced server load and the optimized performance of the site. The Memcached caching system is used by many sites, including famous portals such as Reddit, Wikipedia and Zynga, which is a proof of the effectiveness of the Memcached system.
