Memcached is a content caching system, which has been gaining popularity in recent years owing to its efficiency. It’s used to cache requests and responses between a database and the app that is using it, which can improve the performance of your website and lessen the created load considerably. Anytime a web page on an application-powered Internet site is opened, the application connects to the database and "asks" what information should be displayed, and then extracts it. With Memcached, these procedures are omitted, since the platform has already cached all of the content that should be shown on a given webpage. If any data is changed, the Memcached content is updated too, so the users will never see out-of-date data. The Memcached platform is an ideal option for every website that entices lots of viewers, as it will increase its speed and will improve the overall user experience.
Memcached in Website Hosting
You can use the Memcached caching system with all Linux website hosting services that we’re offering. It is offered as an optional upgrade, which you can order with only a few mouse clicks via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It requires an extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud web hosting platform, so you can begin using Memcached once you add it. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts, which will offer you more versatility depending on the Internet sites that you would like to use it for. The first one specifies the number of the sites that will use the Memcached caching system, or the ‘instances’, while the second one is related to the memory, in other words – to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can get more memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you’ve added, the more content will be cached, which may be a good idea for regularly visited sites with very large databases and a lot of visitors. Thus, you can optimize the speed of every script-powered site hosted on our servers without efforts.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
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 websites hosted in the semi-dedicated server hosting account, you can activate it with only a few clicks. The caching platform is suitable for any script-driven web app like Joomla, WordPress, or even an in-house built application, and based on your necessities, you’ll be able to select two different features – how many sites will use the Memcached caching platform, i.e. the number of instances; and how much information will be cached, in other words – the amount of system memory that the platform will use. The two things are not tied to each other, so if you run a traffic-consuming site with a lot of content, you can get one instance and a larger amount of memory. The Memcached caching platform will increase the overall performance of your sites soon after you enable it and both you and your website visitors will enjoy much faster load times.
Memcached in VPS Hosting
You will get Memcached with each of the virtual private server packages offered by us when you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel and you’ll be able to activate the object caching platform through the section with the same name. The activation takes a couple of clicks of the mouse and you will detect the difference in the performance of your websites almost instantaneously. The amount of system memory that Memcached can take advantage of to store information depends on the given Virtual Private Server package that you have chosen, but at any rate it will be at least several hundred megabytes, which is more than enough even for multiple data-loaded Internet sites. You can use Memcached with sites based on WordPress, Joomla or any other web-based application and decrease the load on your VPS, which will permit you to continue using the current VPS plan instead of upgrading to a more powerful one, as you will simply not need it. Memcached is already being used by famous websites like Reddit, Zynga and Wikipedia, which is a proof of its efficacy.
Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting
Memcached comes for free with all dedicated web hosting that we offer and the one and only requirement is that the server must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can use the distributed memory object caching system for any database-driven site, including those that are based on famous applications – for example, a WordPress online journal or a Joomla-driven community site. Each server comes with a specific amount of system memory that the Memcached caching system can employ, but the minimum amount you’ll get is 3 gigabytes, which is sufficient enough to speed up extremely heavy websites considerably, since this very memory will be dedicated to storing the cached content. The system will begin caching info as soon as it is activated, so soon thereafter, you will note the improved performance of your sites and the decreased load on the dedicated machine. A lot of sites use the Memcached caching system to enhance their efficacy, including popular ones like Reddit and Wikipedia.
