Memcached is a content caching platform, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years due to its efficiency. It is used to cache calls and replies between a database and the app that is using it, which can accelerate the overall performance of your website and decrease the generated load considerably. Every time a web page on an application-driven Internet site is visited, the application connects to the database and "asks" what information should be shown, and then pulls it. With Memcached, these procedures are skipped, since the platform has already cached the content that should appear on a specific webpage. When any content is edited, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the users will never see out-of-date data. The Memcached platform is an excellent option for every site that lures plenty of visitors, since it will make it lightning-fast and will enhance the user experience.
Memcached in Shared Hosting
The Memcached data caching system comes as an upgrade with each Linux shared package offered by our company and you’ll be able to start using it once you order it, since the PHP extension that it needs in order to work properly is already installed on our leading-edge cloud website hosting platform. You can order the upgrade through the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with every web hosting plan and a new section where you can administer Memcached will appear. The upgrade is separated into two parts – the number of instances and the amount of system memory, so as to give you more flexibility. The first one shows the number of the sites which can use Memcached, while the second, which is offered in increments of 16 MB, defines the total size of the content that can be cached by the system. A traffic-heavy Internet site with a large-size database may need more memory in order to take an even bigger advantage of the Memcached caching system, so in case you’d like to upgrade this service, you will be able to do it at any time with several clicks.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can add the Memcached data caching platform to any of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages that we’re offering and make use of its full capacity for any script-powered website hosted on our servers. The upgrade is accessible through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can select two features – the instances and the amount of memory. These things indicate how many sites can use the Memcached platform and how much system memory it will use to store your information. You can choose them independently, since a given instance is not bound to a specific amount of system memory, so you can use plenty of memory for a single large-scale site, for example. This feature is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order as much memory as you like. The platform can be used with any script-powered website regardless of its type, including those based on widely used Internet apps like Joomla, WordPress or Drupal, and lots of companies such as Zynga and Wikipedia are already using it to boost the speed of their websites.
Memcached in VPS Hosting
Memcached is included by default with every virtual private server that we offer if you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel, so you will not need to pay anything extra to be able to use the maximum potential of this content caching system. The more powerful Virtual Private Server plan you select, the more memory Memcached will have for data caching purposes, but you’ll have no less than several hundred megabytes at all times, which is much more than what you’d get with a shared web hosting package. This will permit you to use the Memcached system for a lot of Internet sites, no matter how busy they are, which in turn goes to say that you can use a less powerful package for them without overloading your virtual machine. The Memcached caching system is ideal for script-powered web applications like WordPress, Joomla, OpenCart or Mambo, and you can utilize it even with a custom-created app. Shortly after you activate the Memcached system, it will begin storing information and you will note the optimized overall performance of your websites.
Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting
Memcached comes free of charge with all Linux dedicated servers hosting packages offered by our company and the one and only requirement is that the dedicated server must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can use the content caching system for any database-driven site, including those that are based on famous Internet applications – for example, a WordPress online diary or a Joomla-driven social network. Each server is tied to a specific amount of system memory that the Memcached caching system can use, but the minimum you’ll get is three gigabytes, which is quite enough to enhance the load speed of very popular websites immensely, as this memory will be dedicated to storing the cached data. The Memcached system will begin caching information once it’s enabled, so soon thereafter, you will notice the improved overall performance of your sites and the decreased load on your dedicated machine. Plenty of sites use the Memcached system to boost their efficiency, including famous ones such as Wikipedia and Reddit.
