Memcached is an object caching system, which has been gaining in popularity lately because of its efficiency. It is used to cache queries and responses between a database and the application that uses it, which can enhance the performance of your site and reduce the generated server load drastically. Every time a page on an app-driven Internet site is opened, the application connects to the database and "asks" what info should be displayed, and then fetches it. With Memcached, these procedures are skipped, since the platform has already cached all of the content that should appear on a certain web page. In case any content is modified, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the site visitors will never see old data. The Memcached platform is a perfect choice for any website that has lots of visitors, since it will increase its loading speed and will enhance the overall user experience.
Memcached in Cloud Website Hosting
You can take advantage of Memcached with all cloud website hosting packages offered by our company. It’s offered as an upgrade, which you can add with only a few mouse clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It needs an extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud platform, so you can start using the Memcached caching system once you add it. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts, which will offer you more versatility depending on the websites that you’d like to use it for. The first part shows the number of the websites that will use the Memcached caching system, or the ‘instances’, while the second one is related to the system memory, i.e. to how much content the system will be able to cache. You can add more system memory in increments of 16 MB and the more memory you’ve ordered, the more content will be cached, which may be a really good idea for heavy-traffic sites with very large databases and plenty of visitors. Thus, you can boost the overall performance of every script-based website hosted on our servers without effort.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you decide to host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to take advantage of Memcached easily, as the platform’s setup requires several clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The extension that it requires is already installed on our servers, so you can begin using the Memcached platform as soon as you add it to your account. You will be able to choose how many Internet sites can use it and how much data it will cache, in other words – there are two separate upgradable features – the number of instances and the amount of system memory. You can get more of both, so if one of your websites becomes extremely popular, for instance, you can always add more memory to it. Our system is pretty flexible in this regard and we do not tie a specific number of instances to a pre-defined amount of system memory. You can use the Memcached caching platform to improve the loading speed of any script-powered site, including those that are based on popular web-based apps, such as Joomla or WordPress.
Memcached in VPS
You’ll get Memcached with any of the virtual private server plans that we offer when you select Hepsia as your Control Panel and you’ll be able to activate the caching platform via the section with the exact same name. The activation requires several clicks and you will see the difference in the overall performance of your websites almost momentarily. The amount of memory that the Memcached platform can employ to store information depends on the particular Virtual Private Server package that you’ve picked, but at any rate it won’t be less than several hundred megabytes, which is quite enough even for several content-heavy sites. You can use the Memcached platform with sites based on Joomla, WordPress or any other web application and decrease the load on your virtual server, which will enable you to keep using the current VPS hosting plan instead of moving to a more powerful one, since you simply won’t need it. Memcached is already being used by famous websites like Wikipedia, Zynga and Reddit, which proves its efficiency.
Memcached in Dedicated Hosting
Memcached is available free of charge with all Linux dedicated hosting that we’re offering and the only condition is that the server must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can use the memory caching system for any database-powered website, including those that are based on famous software apps – for instance, a WordPress personal blog or a Joomla-driven social networking site. Each dedicated server is tied to a particular amount of memory that the Memcached system can use, but the minimum amount you’ll get is 3 gigabytes, which is quite enough to accelerate the load speed of extremely busy websites substantially, as this memory will be dedicated to storing the cached information. The Memcached system will begin storing information as soon as it’s enabled, so soon thereafter, you’ll notice the enhanced overall performance of your websites and the reduced load on your server. Numerous websites use the Memcached caching system to improve their efficiency, among them famous ones like Wikipedia and Reddit.
