Memcached is a caching platform, which has been gaining in popularity lately due to its efficiency. It’s used to cache requests and responses between a database and the application that’s using it, which can improve the performance of your website and lessen the produced server load tremendously. Anytime a page on an app-powered Internet site is accessed, the application connects to the database and "asks" what information should be shown, and then fetches it. With Memcached, these steps are skipped, since the platform has already cached all the content that should be shown on a particular webpage. When any data is modified, the Memcached content is updated too, so the visitors will never end up seeing out-of-date content. Memcached is an ideal solution for any site that has a lot of visitors, since it will make it astonishingly fast and will improve the overall user experience.
Memcached in Cloud Web Hosting
When you host script-based websites in a cloud web hosting account with us, you will be able to add the Memcached content caching system to your shared hosting plan with only a few clicks via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantaneously and, since the extension required for it is already installed on our advanced cloud web hosting platform, you can start using it straight away. To give you more versatility, we offer two separate upgrades related to the number of instances (i.e. how many websites will use Memcached) and to the amount of memory that Memcached will use. The latter is available in increments of 16 megabytes and you can add memory whenever you want. Naturally, the more memory Memcached is permitted to use, the more data it will cache, so if you run a large-scale site with lots of data, you may need more memory so as to be able to make the most of the power that Memcached can offer you.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can get the Memcached distributed memory caching system as an optional upgrade with each of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting service and since it works with any script-powered software application, you can use it for any website that you host on our servers, no matter what application you have used – Mambo, WordPress or Joomla, a custom app, etc. You can add the upgrade via the respective section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel from which you administer your semi-dedicated account, and you can select two different things – the number of instances and the amount of system memory that they will use. In other words, these things show how many sites will use the Memcached system and the amount of memory that the system will be able to use to cache your info. The two things are offered independently for more flexibility and one instance does not come bundled with a fixed amount of memory. You can make the most of the Memcached system with any sort of website and both you and the website visitors will swiftly perceive the difference in the performance.
Memcached in VPS Servers
When you purchase a VPS server from us, you will be able to use Memcached at no additional price, as the platform comes with all servers ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Even if you own data-heavy sites, you will be able to accelerate their performance with no effort and the decreased server load will enable you to keep your current plan rather than moving to a more powerful one. The amount of memory that the Memcached caching platform can use to cache info depends on the plan that you are using, but even with a lower-end one, you’ll have at least several hundred MB, which is significantly more than what you’d get with a shared web hosting package, so the website performance boost will be great. You can use the Memcached platform with any database-powered app, irrespective of whether you have created it on your own or you’re using a ready-for-use one like WordPress, OpenCart or Joomla.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers
Memcached is available for free with all dedicated service offered by our company and the only condition is that the dedicated machine must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. You can use the content caching system for any database-powered website, including those that are based on famous Internet apps – for instance, a WordPress online blog or a Joomla-driven social networking website. Each dedicated server is tied to a particular amount of memory that the Memcached system can employ, but the minimum amount you will get is three gigabytes, which is quite enough to increase the loading speed of very popular sites significantly, as this memory will be dedicated to storing the cached data. The Memcached system will begin storing info as soon as it’s enabled, so shortly thereafter, you’ll observe the enhanced performance of your websites and the reduced load on your dedicated server. A lot of websites use the Memcached system to boost their efficacy, among them popular ones like Reddit and Wikipedia.
