Memcached is a content caching system, which has been gaining popularity in recent years because of its effectiveness. It is used to cache requests and responses between a database and the app that uses it, which can enhance the overall performance of your site and lessen the generated load drastically. Every time a web page on an app-driven Internet site is accessed, the app connects to the database and "asks" what information should be displayed, and then extracts it. With Memcached, these steps are omitted, since the platform has already cached all the content that should show up on a given page. In case any data is edited, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ too, so the visitors will never see out-of-date content. The platform is an ideal choice for any Internet site that draws plenty of visitors, since it will make it blazing-fast and will enhance the user experience.
Memcached in Shared Website Hosting
When you host script-powered sites in a shared website hosting
account with us, you will be able to add the Memcached content caching system to your web hosting plan with just a couple of clicks of the mouse from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available momentarily and, since the PHP extension required for it is already installed on our advanced cloud web hosting platform, you can begin using it straight away. To give you more versatility, we offer two separate upgrades related to the number of instances (in other words – how many sites will use Memcached) and to the amount of system memory that the Memcached caching system will use. The latter is available in increments of 16 MB and you can order memory as many times as you want. Logically, the more memory Memcached is permitted to use, the more data it will cache, so if you manage a resource-requiring website with a lot of data, you may require more memory in order to be able to make full use of the power that Memcached can offer you.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can get the Memcached distributed memory caching system as an upgrade with each of our semi-dedicated hosting
and since it works with any script-driven web app, you can use it for each website that you host on our servers, irrespective of what app you have used – WordPress, Mambo or Joomla™
, a custom-developed application, etc. You can order the upgrade through the respective section of the Hepsia Control Panel from which you manage your semi-dedicated server account, and you can select two different things – the instances and the amount of memory that they will use. In other words, these things define how many websites will use the Memcached caching system and how much memory the system will be able to use to store your data. The two things are ordered separately for more flexibility and one instance does not come bundled with a particular amount of system memory. You can take advantage of the Memcached system with any kind of website and both you and the website visitors will swiftly see the difference in the performance.
Memcached in VPS Web Hosting
Memcached is included by default with each virtual private server
that we are offering provided that you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel, so you will not have to pay any extra cash to be able to make the most of the maximum capacity of this memory caching system. The more powerful Virtual Private Server hosting plan you pick, the more memory Memcached will have for data storage purposes, but you will have no less than several hundred megabytes at all times, which is much more than what you’d get with a shared web hosting plan. This will permit you to use the Memcached system for numerous sites, no matter how large they are, which in turn goes to say that you can use a lower-end package for them without overloading the virtual server. The Memcached caching system is perfect for script-driven web applications like WordPress, Joomla™
, OpenCart or Mambo, and you can use it even with a custom-created app. Soon after you enable Memcached, it will start storing content and you will notice the enhanced overall performance of your websites.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting
You can take advantage of the full potential of Memcached with every dedicated server
offered by us in case you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel. A special Control Panel section is dedicated to the distributed memory caching system and you can begin using Memcached for any website hosted on the dedicated machine with only several mouse clicks. You can optimize the performance of any site, irrespective of what script-powered web app you’re using or how busy the website is, as the minimum amount of system memory that Memcached will be able to use is three gigabytes and this amount rises tremendously with the more powerful servers. Shortly after the caching system is enabled, it will start caching content anytime somebody accesses your website, so, once enough data has been cached, you’ll detect the decreased load on the dedicated server and the improved overall performance of your website. The Memcached system is used by many sites, among them popular portals like Reddit, Wikipedia and Zynga, which confirms the efficiency of the Memcached caching system.
