Memcached is a caching system, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years due to its effectiveness. It’s used to cache requests and responses between a database and the application that is using it, which can increase the overall performance of your website and decrease the produced server load immensely. Anytime a webpage on an app-powered website is opened, the app connects to the database and "asks" what information should be shown, and then fetches it. With Memcached, these steps are omitted, as the platform has already cached all the content that should show up on a particular web page. In case any content is modified, the Memcached content is updated too, so the visitors will never see out-of-date data. The platform is an ideal solution for every site that draws a lot of viewers, since it will make it amazingly fast and will improve the user experience.
Memcached in Shared Website Hosting
Memcached is offered as an upgrade with each and every shared website hosting plan that we offer and in case you wish to use it for any script-based site that you host on our leading-edge cloud platform, you will be able to activate it in a couple of easy steps via your Hepsia Control Panel. In the meantime, you’ll get the option to upgrade two different features – the instances and the memory. The first one refers to the number of the Internet sites that can use the Memcached distributed memory object caching system simultaneously, so if you need it for several sites, you can get a handful of instances. The second one has to do with the total amount of memory that Memcached will be allowed to use in order to cache info, so for plenty of sites (or for one single frequently visited site), you should order more memory for improved performance. The memory comes in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be added at any moment. With the Memcached caching system, each script-based website hosted on our servers will load unbelievably fast.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you buy one of our semi-dedicated server packages, you will find Memcached as an optional feature in the Upgrades section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so if you’d like to use it for any of the websites hosted in the semi-dedicated server hosting account, you can enable it with just a few clicks. The distributed memory caching platform is perfect for any script-powered software app like WordPress, Joomla, or even a custom one, and depending on your demands, you will be able to choose two separate things – how many sites will use the Memcached caching platform, in other words – the number of instances; and how much info will be cached, i.e. the amount of system memory that the platform will employ. The two things are not tied to each other, so if you manage a traffic-heavy Internet site with lots of data, you can order one instance and a large amount of memory. The Memcached caching platform will improve the overall performance of your websites soon after you activate it and both you and your website visitors will enjoy much better load speeds.
Memcached in VPS Servers
You’ll get Memcached with any of the VPS server packages that we’re offering in case you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel and you will be able to activate the distributed memory caching platform via the Control Panel section with the same name. The activation takes a couple of clicks of the mouse and you’ll detect the difference in the overall performance of your websites almost immediately. The amount of system memory that Memcached can take advantage of to cache content depends on the particular VPS package that you have selected, but at any rate it won’t be less than several hundred MB, which is quite enough even for several resource-requiring sites. You can use the Memcached platform with websites based on Joomla, WordPress or any other app and decrease the load on your VPS, which will enable you to continue using the current package instead of switching to a more powerful one, as you simply won’t need it. The Memcached platform is already being used by famous websites such as Wikipedia, Reddit and Zynga, which verifies its efficacy.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers
You can unleash the full potential of Memcached with each dedicated server that we’re offering in case you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. A special Control Panel section is dedicated to the caching system and you can start using Memcached for any Internet site hosted on the dedicated machine with just a few mouse clicks. You can accelerate the performance of any Internet site, regardless of what script-driven software app you are using or how busy the site is, since the minimum amount of system memory that Memcached will be able to use is three gigabytes and this amount increases immensely with the higher-end servers. Soon after the caching system is activated, it will start caching information each time someone browses your website, so, once sufficient information has been cached, you will notice the decreased load on the dedicated server and the enhanced overall performance of your website. Memcached is being used by a lot of websites, among them famous portals such as Zynga, Wikipedia and Reddit, which is a proof of the effectiveness of the Memcached caching system.
