Memcached is a data caching platform, which has been gaining popularity lately thanks to its effectiveness. It’s used to cache requests and replies between a database and the app that’s using it, which can accelerate the overall performance of your Internet site and decrease the produced server load considerably. Anytime a web page on an app-driven Internet site is opened, the app connects to the database and "asks" what info should be shown, and then drags it. With Memcached, these procedures are omitted, as the platform has already cached all of the content that should be displayed on a particular web page. In case any content is updated, the Memcached content is updated too, so the users will never end up seeing outdated content. Memcached is an ideal option for any website that draws a lot of viewers, as it will make it load faster and will enhance the user experience.
Memcached in Shared Hosting
When you host script-driven websites in a shared hosting account with our company, you can add Memcached to your plan with only a couple of mouse clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantly and, since the needed PHP extension is pre-installed on our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform, you can begin using it right away. To give you more versatility, we offer two separate upgrades related to the number of instances (in other words – how many websites will use Memcached) and to the system memory that Memcached will use. The latter is offered in increments of 16 MB and you can order memory whenever you want. Naturally, the more memory the Memcached caching system is permitted to use, the more data it will cache, so if you manage a frequently visited site with lots of content, you may require more memory so as to be able to make full use of the power that Memcached can offer you.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you acquire any of our semi-dedicated server plans, you’ll find Memcached as an optional feature in the Upgrades section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so if you want to use it for any of the Internet sites hosted in your account, you can enable it with just a few mouse clicks. The distributed memory caching platform is perfect for any script-based web application such as Joomla, WordPress, or even an in-house built app, and depending on your requirements, you’ll be able to choose two different features – how many Internet sites will use Memcached, in other words – the number of instances; and how much content will be cached, i.e. the amount of system memory that the platform will use. The two things are not bound to each other, so if you have a busy site with lots of data, you can get one instance and a large amount of system memory. The Memcached caching platform will accelerate the performance of your sites soon after you activate it and both you and your visitors will enjoy better loading speeds.
Memcached in VPS Servers
You’ll get Memcached with any of the VPS server packages that we’re offering in case you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel and you will be able to activate the platform through the Control Panel section with the same name. The setup requires a couple of mouse clicks and you will notice the difference in the performance of your sites almost instantly. The amount of memory that the Memcached caching platform can take advantage of to cache info depends on the given VPS plan that you have selected, but at any rate it won’t be less than several hundred MB, which is quite enough even for multiple popular sites. You can use Memcached with Internet sites powered by WordPress, Joomla or any other application and lower the load on your VPS, which will permit you to keep using the current VPS hosting plan rather than upgrading to a more powerful one, since you will simply not need it. Memcached is already being used by famous websites such as Reddit, Zynga and Wikipedia, which demonstrates its effectiveness.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers
You can take advantage of the full potential of Memcached with each and every dedicated server that we are offering if you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel. A special Control Panel section is dedicated to the data caching system and you can start using Memcached for any site hosted on the server with only several mouse clicks. You can optimize the performance of any Internet site, irrespective of what script-powered software application you are using or how heavy the Internet site is, since the minimum amount of system memory that Memcached will be able to use is 3 GB and this amount rises significantly with the more powerful dedicated servers. Soon after the caching system is activated, it will start caching content each time someone visits your site, so, as soon as enough info has been stored, you will perceive the decreased load on the dedicated server and the improved performance of the Internet site. The Memcached system is being used by a lot of sites, including popular portals such as Reddit, Zynga and Wikipedia, which is a confirmation of the effectiveness of the Memcached system.
