Memcached is a caching platform, which has been gaining popularity lately owing to its efficiency. It’s used to cache requests and responses between a database and the app that’s using it, which can enhance the overall performance of your Internet site and decrease the produced server load greatly. Anytime a page on an application-powered Internet site is accessed, the app connects to the database and "asks" what information should be displayed, and then drags it. With Memcached, these steps are omitted, since the platform has already cached all the content that should be shown on a specific web page. When any content is changed, the Memcached content is updated as well, so the website visitors will never end up seeing out-of-date content. The Memcached platform is an excellent choice for every website that draws plenty of visitors, as it will make it extra-fast and will improve the overall user experience.
Memcached in Shared Website Hosting
You can use the Memcached data caching system with all Linux shared website hosting packages that we’re offering. It’s available as an upgrade, which you can acquire with only a few clicks via your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. It needs an extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud website hosting platform, so you can begin using the Memcached caching system as soon as you order it. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts, which will offer you more freedom depending on the sites that you’d like to use it for. The first one determines the number of the websites that will use the Memcached caching system, or the ‘instances’, whereas the second one is related to the system memory, in other words – to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can add more system memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you have, the more content will be cached, which may be a quite good idea for high-demand sites with large-sized databases and numerous visitors. In this way, you can boost the speed of any script-based website hosted on our cloud servers effortlessly.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you choose to host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account, you can take advantage of Memcached with ease, as the content caching platform’s activation requires a few clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The required PHP extension is already installed on our semi-dedicated servers, so you can begin using the Memcached caching platform the moment you add it to your semi-dedicated server account. You’ll be able to select how many websites can use it and how much content it will cache, i.e. there are two separate upgradable features – the instances and the amount of memory. You can get more of both, so if one of your sites becomes extremely popular, for example, you can always add more memory to it. Our system is amazingly flexible in this regard and we don’t bind a given number of instances to a pre-defined amount of system memory. You can use the Memcached caching platform to accelerate any script-driven website, including those that are based on popular Internet applications, such as Joomla or WordPress.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting
You can take advantage of the full potential of Memcached with every dedicated server offered by us in case you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel. A section in it is dedicated to the object caching system and you can start using Memcached for any site hosted on the server with only several clicks. You can increase the overall performance of any website, irrespective of what script-powered application you’re using or how popular the Internet site is, since the minimum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to use is three gigabytes and this amount grows enormously with the more powerful dedicated servers. Soon after the system is enabled, it will start caching info every time someone visits your site, so, as soon as enough content has been cached, you’ll see the decreased load on your server and the optimized performance of your site. Memcached is being used by many websites, among them famous portals such as Zynga, Wikipedia and Reddit, which demonstrates the effectiveness of the Memcached system.
