Memcached is a memory caching system, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years because of its efficiency. It’s used to cache calls and replies between a database and the app that’s using it, which can boost the overall performance of your website and lessen the produced load considerably. Anytime 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 steps are skipped, since the platform has already cached all of the content that should be displayed on a given web page. If any content is changed, the Memcached content is updated as well, so the website visitors will never end up seeing outdated content. Memcached is an excellent option for any Internet site that lures a lot of visitors, as it will increase its loading speed and will improve the overall user experience.
Memcached in Shared Web Hosting
Memcached comes as an optional upgrade with each shared web hosting account that we are offering and in case you would like to use it for any script-powered Internet site that you host on our cutting-edge cloud platform, you will be able to activate it in a few simple steps through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. In the meantime, you will be given the option to upgrade two separate features – the instances and the system memory. The first one has to do with the number of the Internet sites that can use Memcached at the same time, so if you need it for several websites, you can order a handful of instances. The second one refers to the total amount of memory that Memcached will be allowed to use in order to cache information, so for plenty of websites (or for one frequently visited site), you should get more memory for better performance. The memory comes in increments of 16 MB and more memory can be ordered at any moment. With Memcached, each script-based site hosted on our servers will load incredibly fast.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you get any of our semi-dedicated server packages, you will find Memcached as an optional upgrade in the Upgrades part of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so if you would like to use it for any of the Internet sites hosted in the semi-dedicated account, you can enable it with just a few clicks. The data caching platform is ideal for any script-based app like WordPress, Joomla, or even a custom-built one, and depending on your necessities, you’ll be able to select two different features – how many Internet sites will use the Memcached caching platform, in other words – the number of instances; and how much information will be stored, i.e. the amount of system memory that the platform will use. The two features are not tied to each other, so if you’ve got a popular website with a lot of content, you can get one instance and a large amount of memory. Memcached will accelerate the performance of your sites soon after you activate it and both you and your site visitors will enjoy better loading times.
Memcached in VPS Servers
Memcached is included by default with every VPS server that we’re offering on the condition that you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel, so you won’t need to pay anything extra to be able to make the most of the potential of this data caching system. The more powerful VPS plan you choose, the more memory Memcached will have for information storage purposes, but you will have at least several hundred megabytes at all times, which is much more than what you’d get with a shared plan. This will allow you to use the Memcached system for a lot of Internet sites, no matter how popular they are, which in turn goes to say that you can use a low-end plan for them without overloading your server. The caching system is ideal for script-based apps like OpenCart, WordPress, Joomla or Mambo, and you can use it even with a custom-developed app. Shortly after you enable the Memcached caching system, it will begin caching info and you will perceive the optimized performance of your websites.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers
Memcached is available for free with all Linux dedicated service offered by us and the only condition is that the dedicated server must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. You can use the distributed memory object caching system for any database-driven website, including those that are based on widely used web applications – for instance, a WordPress online blog or a Joomla-driven community web portal. Each dedicated machine comes with a particular amount of memory that the Memcached system can employ, but the minimum you’ll get is three gigabytes, which is sufficient enough to optimize the speed of extremely popular sites immensely, as this very memory will be dedicated to storing the cached data. The system will begin caching info as soon as it is activated, so soon after that, you’ll note the optimized overall performance of your websites and the reduced load on your dedicated server. A lot of websites use Memcached to enhance their efficiency, among them famous ones such as Wikipedia and Reddit.
