Memcached is a memory caching platform, which has been gaining in popularity lately because of its efficiency. It’s used to cache requests and replies between a database and the application that’s using it, which can enhance the performance of your site and decrease the produced load immensely. Every time a web page on an application-powered website is visited, the app connects to the database and "asks" what info should be shown, and then extracts it. With Memcached, these procedures are omitted, since the platform has already cached all of the content that should appear on a given webpage. When any data is changed, the Memcached content is updated as well, so the site visitors will never end up seeing outdated data. The platform is an ideal option for any website that draws numerous visitors, since it will make it extremely fast and will improve the overall user experience.
Memcached in Shared Hosting
The Memcached distributed memory caching system comes as an upgrade with each and every Linux shared plan
that we are offering and you will be able to start using it the moment you add it, as the PHP extension that it needs so as to run correctly is pre-installed on our leading-edge cloud platform. You can order the upgrade via the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes bundled with each shared hosting package and a brand new Control Panel section where you can administer Memcached will appear. The upgrade is separated into two parts – the number of instances and the amount of system memory, so as to offer you more flexibility. The first one refers to the number of the websites which can use Memcached, whereas the second, which is offered in increments of 16 MB, defines the total size of the content that the system can cache. A traffic-heavy website with a large database may require more memory in order to take an even bigger advantage of the Memcached caching system, so in case you wish to upgrade this service, you’ll be able to do it at any given point with a few clicks of the mouse.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can add the Memcached object caching platform to any of the semi-dedicated plans
that we are offering and make use of its full capacity for any script-driven website hosted by us. The upgrade is offered through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can select two things – the number of instances and the amount of memory. These things show how many sites can use the Memcached caching platform and how much system memory it will use to store your data. You can choose them separately, since a given instance is not bound to a specific amount of memory, so you can use lots of memory for a single large-sized site, for example. This feature is offered in increments of 16 MB and you can get as much memory as you like. The platform can be used with any script-powered website irrespective of its type, including those based on popular software apps like Joomla™
, WordPress or Drupal™
, and many companies like Zynga and Wikipedia are already using it to accelerate the performance of their websites.
Memcached in VPS Servers
You’ll get Memcached with each of the VPS server
packages that we are offering in case you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel and you will be able to activate the content caching platform through the Control Panel section with the same name. The activation requires a couple of clicks of the mouse and you’ll detect the difference in the performance of your websites almost immediately. The amount of memory that Memcached can take advantage of to store info depends on the given VPS package that you’ve selected, but in any case it will not be less than several hundred megabytes, which is more than enough even for several large-sized sites. You can use the Memcached platform with sites driven by WordPress, Joomla™
or any other software app and lower the load on your virtual machine, which will permit you to continue using the current package instead of migrating to a more powerful one, as you will simply not need it. Memcached is already being used by popular websites such as Zynga, Wikipedia and Reddit, which proves its effectiveness.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers
You can unleash the full potential of Memcached with each dedicated server
offered by us in case you select Hepsia as your Control Panel. A section in it is dedicated to the data caching system and you can start using Memcached for any website hosted on the machine with only a few clicks of the mouse. You can improve the performance of any site, no matter what script-driven application you’re using or how heavy the site is, as the minimum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to employ is 3 gigabytes and this amount increases considerably with the higher-end dedicated servers. Shortly after the system is enabled, it will begin caching content every time someone opens your website, so, once sufficient data has been cached, you will detect the reduced server load and the enhanced performance of the site. Memcached is used by a lot of websites, including popular portals such as Reddit, Wikipedia and Zynga, which is a confirmation of the efficiency of the Memcached system.
