Memcached is a memory caching platform, which has been gaining in popularity lately owing to its effectiveness. It is used to cache calls and responses between a database and the app that’s using it, which can increase the overall performance of your Internet site and reduce the generated load greatly. Every time a web page on an app-powered website is visited, the app connects to the database and "asks" what info should be shown, and then fetches it. With Memcached, these procedures are skipped, since the platform has already cached all the content that should be displayed on a specific page. When any data is edited, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the users will never see old data. Memcached is an ideal solution for every Internet site that entices a lot of visitors, since it will boost its loading speed and will enhance the user experience.
Memcached in Hosting
You can take advantage of the Memcached distributed memory object caching system with all hosting plans that we offer. It is available as an upgrade, which you can activate with just a few clicks through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It requires an extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud web hosting platform, so you can begin using the Memcached caching system once you order it. The upgrade is separated into two parts, which will offer you more versatility depending on the sites that you wish to use it for. The first one reveals the number of the Internet sites that will use Memcached, or the so-called ‘instances’, while the second one is related to the system memory, i.e. to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can order more system memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you have added, the more data will be cached, which may be a good idea for popular sites with very large databases and plenty of concurrent visitors. In this way, you can boost the overall performance of any script-based site hosted on our servers without effort.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can add the Memcached distributed memory caching platform to any of the semi-dedicated plans that we offer and make use of its full capacity for any script-driven website hosted on our servers. The upgrade is accessible through the Hepsia Control Panel and you can select two things – the instances and the system memory. These things determine how many sites can use the Memcached platform and the amount of system memory that it will use to cache your content. You can select them separately, since a given instance is not bound to a specific amount of system memory, so you can use lots of memory for a single traffic-intensive site, for example. This upgrade is available in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order as much memory as you wish. The platform can be used with any script-driven website regardless of its nature, including those based on widely used web apps like WordPress, Drupal or Joomla, and a lot of companies like Zynga and Wikipedia are already using it to enhance the performance of their websites.
Memcached in VPS Servers
Memcached is offered by default with each VPS server that we’re offering provided that you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel, so you won’t have to pay any extra cash to be able to take advantage of the potential of this memory caching system. The more powerful VPS plan you choose, the more system memory Memcached will have for content storage purposes, but you will have at least several hundred megabytes at all times, which is much more than the amount of memory you’d get with a shared web hosting package. This will enable you to use the Memcached caching system for lots of websites, no matter how busy they are, which in turn goes to say that you can use a low-end plan for them without overloading your VPS. The caching system is excellent for script-driven applications like WordPress, Joomla, OpenCart or Mambo, and you can use it even with a custom-made app. Soon after you activate Memcached, it will start storing information and you will detect the enhanced performance of your sites.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers
Memcached comes free of charge with all dedicated web hosting plans offered by us and the one and only requirement is that the server must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. You can use the distributed memory object caching system for any database-driven site, including those based on widely used web-based applications – for instance, a WordPress online blog or a Joomla-driven social networking site. Each dedicated machine comes with a different amount of system memory that the Memcached caching system can use, but the minimum you will get is three gigabytes, which is sufficient enough to accelerate the load speed of very large websites greatly, as this memory will be dedicated to storing the cached data. The Memcached system will start storing info once it’s enabled, so shortly thereafter, you’ll detect the optimized performance of your websites and the decreased load on your dedicated server. Many Internet sites use Memcached to increase their efficacy, including popular ones like Reddit and Wikipedia.
