Memcached is a content caching system, which has been gaining in popularity lately owing to its efficiency. It’s used to cache requests and responses between a database and the application that uses it, which can increase the performance of your website and reduce the created load substantially. Every time a web page on an application-driven site is accessed, the app connects to the database and "asks" what info should be displayed, and then pulls it. With Memcached, these procedures are omitted, since the platform has already cached all of the content that should be shown on a particular web page. In case any data is updated, the Memcached content is updated too, so the site visitors will never see out-of-date data. The Memcached platform is an excellent option for any Internet site that entices lots of viewers, since it will make it super-fast and will improve the overall user experience.
Memcached in Cloud Hosting
The Memcached data caching system is available as an upgrade with every cloud hosting offered by our company and you will be able to start using it the moment you enable it, as the extension that it requires so as to run properly is already installed on our leading-edge cloud platform. You can order the upgrade through the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes bundled with every web hosting plan and a new Control Panel section where you can manage Memcached will appear. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts – the instances and the amount of memory, so as to offer you more freedom. The first one refers to the number of the websites that can use Memcached, whereas the second, which is available in increments of 16 megabytes, indicates the total size of the content that the system can cache. A heavy-traffic Internet site with a large-sized database may require more memory to take an even greater advantage of the Memcached caching system, so if you wish to upgrade this service, you will be able to do it at any given moment with a couple of mouse clicks.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you order one of our semi-dedicated server plans, you’ll find Memcached as an optional upgrade in the Upgrades part of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so if you wish to use it for any of the Internet sites hosted in the semi-dedicated account, you can activate it with just a couple of clicks of the mouse. The data caching platform is suitable for any script-based app like WordPress, Joomla, or even a tailor-made app, and based on your necessities, you will be able to choose two different features – how many sites will use the Memcached caching platform, i.e. the number of instances; and how much content will be stored, 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 have a busy Internet site with a lot of data, you can get one instance and a larger amount of system memory. The Memcached platform will accelerate the performance of your websites soon after you enable it and both you and your site visitors will enjoy much better load speeds.
Memcached in VPS Servers
When you buy a VPS server from our company, you will be able to use Memcached at no additional charge, as the content caching platform is offered with all VPSs ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Even if you’ve got large-sized websites, you can accelerate their overall performance with ease and the reduced load on your Virtual Private Server will permit you to continue using your current VPS package rather than upgrading to a more powerful one. The amount of system memory that the Memcached caching platform can use to store content depends on the plan that you’re using, but even with a lower-end one, you will have at least several hundred megabytes, which is significantly more than what you’d get with a shared package, so the website performance boost will be incredible. You can use Memcached with any database-powered app, regardless of whether you have created it yourself or you’re using a ready-to-use one like WordPress, Joomla or OpenCart.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers
Memcached comes for free with all dedicated service offered by us and the one and only condition is that the dedicated server must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can use the content caching system for any database-powered website, including those that are based on popular Internet applications – for example, a WordPress online diary or a Joomla-driven social network. Each dedicated server comes with a different amount of memory that the Memcached caching system can use, but the minimum amount you’ll get is 3 gigabytes, which is sufficient enough to improve the load speed of extremely popular websites seriously, since this very memory will be dedicated to storing the cached information. The system will start caching data once it is enabled, so shortly after that, you will observe the optimized overall performance of your sites and the reduced load on the server. Numerous Internet sites use Memcached to improve their effectiveness, including famous ones such as Wikipedia and Reddit.
