Memcached is a content caching platform, which has been gaining in popularity lately because of its effectiveness. It’s used to cache queries and responses between a database and the app that uses it, which can boost the overall performance of your site and reduce the created load tremendously. Anytime a webpage on an application-driven site is opened, the application connects to the database and "asks" what information should be displayed, and then pulls it. With Memcached, these steps are skipped, as the platform has already cached all of the content that should be displayed on a particular web page. When any content is modified, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ too, so the visitors will never end up seeing out-of-date content. The Memcached platform is an excellent choice for any Internet site that lures many viewers, since it will make it super-fast and will improve the overall user experience.
Memcached in Shared Hosting
The Memcached distributed memory caching system is available as an upgrade with each Linux shared hosting offered by our company and you will be able to start using it as soon as you enable it, as the PHP extension that it needs in order to run properly is already present on our innovative cloud web hosting platform. You can request the upgrade via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with each hosting package and a brand new Control Panel section where you can manage Memcached will show up. The upgrade is separated into two parts – the instances and the amount of system memory, so as to give you more freedom. The first one refers to the number of the sites that can use Memcached, whereas the second one, which comes in increments of 16 megabytes, specifies the maximum size of the content that the system can cache. A popular site with a large-sized database may need more memory to take an even greater advantage of the Memcached caching system, so if you would like to upgrade this service, you’ll be able to do it at any given time with a few clicks of the mouse.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can add the Memcached object caching platform to any of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we offer and use its full potential for any script-driven site hosted by us. The upgrade is available through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can choose two things – the instances and the memory. These things determine the number of the sites that can use the Memcached platform and the amount of system memory that it will use to cache your info. You can select them separately, since a given instance is not bound to a particular amount of system memory, so you can use lots of memory for a single busy site, for example. This feature comes in increments of 16 MB and you can get as much memory as you wish. The Memcached platform can be used with any script-powered website irrespective of its nature, including those based on popular apps like Joomla, Drupal or WordPress, and many companies such as Wikipedia and Zynga are already using it to improve the performance of their websites.
Memcached in VPS Hosting
You’ll get Memcached with each of the virtual private server plans offered by our company when you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to activate the distributed memory object caching platform through the Control Panel section with the very same name. The activation takes a couple of clicks and you’ll notice the difference in the overall performance of your sites almost instantly. The amount of system memory that the Memcached caching platform can take advantage of to store information depends on the given Virtual Private Server hosting plan that you’ve selected, but at any rate it will be at least several hundred MB, which is more than enough even for several content-heavy websites. You can use the Memcached platform with sites powered by Joomla, WordPress or any other app and decrease the load on your virtual server, which will allow you to continue using the current package rather than moving to a more powerful one, as you will simply not need it. Memcached is already being used by popular websites like Wikipedia, Reddit and Zynga, which shows its effectiveness.
Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting
Memcached is available free of charge with all Linux dedicated web hosting that we are offering and the only requirement is that the server must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. You can use the caching system for any database-powered Internet site, including those based on popular web-based apps – for instance, a WordPress personal journal or a Joomla-driven social networking website. Each dedicated machine comes with a certain amount of system memory that the Memcached system can use, but the minimum you will get is 3 GB, which is sufficient enough to accelerate extremely busy sites greatly, as this very memory will be dedicated to storing the cached content. The system will begin storing info the moment it’s activated, so shortly thereafter, you will observe the improved overall performance of your sites and the lowered load on your dedicated server. Lots of Internet sites use the Memcached caching system to enhance their effectiveness, including popular ones like Wikipedia and Reddit.
