Memcached is a content caching system, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years because of its effectiveness. It’s used to cache calls and replies between a database and the app that uses it, which can accelerate the performance of your website and reduce the produced load significantly. Every time a page on an app-powered Internet site is opened, the application connects to the database and "asks" what info should be shown, and then drags it. With Memcached, these steps are skipped, since the platform has already cached all of the content that should be shown on a given web page. If any content is updated, the Memcached content is updated too, so the site visitors will never end up seeing outdated data. The Memcached platform is an excellent option for every Internet site that has numerous visitors, as it will make it truly fast and will enhance the overall user experience.
Memcached in Cloud Web Hosting
Memcached is offered as an upgrade with every Linux cloud web hosting plan offered by our company and you will be able to start using it the moment you activate it, since the extension that it needs so as to run correctly is already available on our cutting-edge cloud website hosting platform. You can request the upgrade from the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with each and every web hosting package and a brand-new Control Panel section where you can administer Memcached will appear. The upgrade is divided into two parts – the instances and the memory, so as to give you more freedom. The first one shows the number of the sites which can use Memcached, whereas the second one, which is offered in increments of 16 megabytes, indicates the maximum size of the content that can be cached by the system. A busy Internet site with a large-size database may require more memory in order to take an even greater advantage of Memcached, so if you would like to upgrade this feature, you’ll be able to do it at any moment with a few mouse clicks.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you obtain one of our semi-dedicated server packages, you’ll find Memcached as an optional feature in the Upgrades section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so if you’d like to use it for any of the websites hosted in the account, you can activate it with only a few clicks. The distributed memory object caching platform is perfect for any script-driven app such as WordPress, Joomla, or even a custom-made app, and depending on your necessities, you’ll be able to select two different things – how many sites will use the Memcached caching platform, in other words – the number of instances; and how much data will be stored, i.e. the amount of memory that the platform will use. The two things are not bound to each other, so if you manage a regularly visited Internet site with a lot of data, you can order one instance and a larger amount of system memory. Memcached will optimize the overall performance of your websites shortly after you activate it and both you and your site visitors will enjoy much better loading speeds.
Memcached in VPS Servers
You’ll get Memcached with any of the VPS server packages offered by us if you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to activate the data caching platform through the section with the very same name. The configuration takes a couple of clicks and you will notice the difference in the overall performance of your websites almost instantly. The amount of system memory that the Memcached caching platform can use to cache info depends on the particular Virtual Private Server package that you’ve selected, but in any case it will not be less than several hundred megabytes, which is more than enough even for several resource-consuming Internet sites. You can use Memcached with sites based on Joomla, WordPress or any other web-based app and lower the load on your virtual server, which will permit you to continue using the current Virtual Private Server hosting package instead of switching to a more powerful one, since you will simply not need it. The Memcached platform is already being used by famous websites such as Reddit, Zynga and Wikipedia, which is a confirmation of its efficacy.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers
Memcached is available free of charge with all dedicated web hosting plans offered by our company and the sole requirement is that the 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 software apps – for example, a WordPress blog or a Joomla-driven community portal. Each dedicated machine is tied to a different amount of memory that the Memcached caching system can employ, but the minimum you will get is 3 gigabytes, which is sufficient enough to speed up extremely heavy websites greatly, since this very memory will be dedicated to storing the cached data. The Memcached system will begin storing content once it’s activated, so shortly thereafter, you’ll note the improved performance of your sites and the reduced load on the dedicated machine. Many Internet sites use the Memcached system to improve their efficacy, including popular ones such as Reddit and Wikipedia.
