Memcached is a data caching platform, which has been gaining popularity in recent years owing to its efficiency. It’s used to cache requests and responses between a database and the app that is using it, which can boost the performance of your Internet site and lessen the generated server load drastically. Every time a web page on an app-driven site is opened, the application connects to the database and "asks" what information should be displayed, and then fetches it. With Memcached, these procedures are skipped, as the platform has already cached the content that should appear on a particular web page. When any data is modified, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ too, so the website visitors will never see old content. Memcached is a perfect solution for any Internet site that draws lots of visitors, as it will make it load much faster and will improve the user experience.
Memcached in Shared Hosting
If you host script-based sites in a shared hosting account with our company, you will be able to add the Memcached object caching system to your shared hosting plan with only a couple of clicks through your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantaneously and, since the PHP extension required for it is pre-installed on our avant-garde cloud platform, you can start using it straight away. To give you more flexibility, we offer two separate upgrades related to the number of instances (i.e. how many Internet sites will use Memcached) and to the amount of system memory that the Memcached caching system will use. The latter is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order memory whenever you wish. Naturally, the more memory Memcached is permitted to use, the more data it will cache, so if you’ve got a busy website with a lot of content, you may require more memory to be able to make full use of the power that Memcached can offer you.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you decide to host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to take advantage of Memcached with ease, since the object caching platform’s setup requires several clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia Control Panel. The required extension is pre-installed on our servers, so you can begin using Memcached as soon as 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’re two separate upgradable features – the number of instances and the memory. You can get more of both, so if one of your sites becomes very busy, for example, you can always order more memory. Our system is unbelievably flexible in this regard and we don’t bind a specific number of instances to a fixed amount of memory. You can employ the Memcached platform to boost the speed of any script-powered website, including those that are based on popular Internet apps, such as Joomla or WordPress.
Memcached in VPS Hosting
When you buy a virtual private server from our company, you will be able to use Memcached at no extra charge, as the data caching platform is offered with all Virtual Private Servers that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. Even if you’ve got popular sites, you can optimize their performance with no effort and the reduced load will allow you to keep using your current Virtual Private Server plan instead of switching to a more powerful one. The amount of system memory that Memcached can use to cache information depends on the package that you’re using, but even with a low-end one, you’ll have at least several hundred MB, which is considerably more than what you’d get with a shared web hosting package, so the website performance boost will be noticeable. You can take advantage of the Memcached platform with any database-driven application, no matter if you have developed it on your own or you are using a ready-to-use one like WordPress, Joomla or OpenCart.
Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting
You can unlock the full potential of Memcached with each and every dedicated server that we offer if you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel. A special section in it is dedicated to the data caching system and you can begin using Memcached for any Internet site hosted on the server with only several clicks of the mouse. You can enhance the performance of any Internet site, irrespective of what script-driven web app you are using or how heavy the website is, as the minimum amount of system memory that Memcached will be able to employ is 3 GB and this amount increases significantly with the higher-end servers. Soon after the system is activated, it will start caching information each time someone accesses your site, so, once sufficient info has been stored, you will detect the decreased load on your dedicated server and the improved performance of the website. The Memcached system is being used by a lot of websites, among them famous portals like Zynga, Reddit and Wikipedia, which proves the effectiveness of the caching system.
