Memcached is a caching platform, which has been gaining in popularity lately owing to its effectiveness. It is used to cache requests and responses between a database and the app that is using it, which can accelerate the overall performance of your site and lessen the created load drastically. Anytime a web page on an app-driven site is accessed, the application connects to the database and "asks" what information 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 appear on a particular web page. In case any data is modified, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the website visitors will never end up seeing old data. The Memcached platform is an ideal solution for any site that draws plenty of viewers, as it will make it incredibly fast and will improve the overall user experience.
Memcached in Shared Hosting
You can make use of Memcached with all shared hosting offered by our company. It’s offered as an optional upgrade, which you can obtain with just a couple of clicks via your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. It requires a PHP extension, which is already installed on our cloud website hosting platform, so you can start using Memcached once you order it. The upgrade is divided into two parts, which will offer you more flexibility depending on the Internet sites that you’d like to use it for. The first one concerns the number of the Internet sites that will use the Memcached caching system, or the so-called ‘instances’, while 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 MB and the more memory you’ve added, the more data will be cached, which may be a really good idea for high-demand websites with very large databases and numerous users. In this way, you can enhance the overall performance of any script-based Internet site hosted on our cloud servers with no effort.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you decide to host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you can take advantage of Memcached effortlessly, since the memory caching platform’s setup requires a few clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The PHP extension that is required is already installed on our servers, so you can start using the Memcached caching platform the moment you add it to your account. You’ll be able to choose how many Internet sites can use it and how much data can be cached, i.e. there are two different features that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the amount of memory. You can order more of both, so if one of your sites becomes very busy, for instance, you can always order more memory. Our system is incredibly flexible in this regard and we don’t tie a particular number of instances to a pre-defined amount of memory. You can use the Memcached caching platform to increase the loading speed of any script-powered Internet site, including those that are based on widely used applications, such as Joomla or WordPress.
Memcached in VPS Servers
Memcached is offered by default with each VPS server that we are offering on the condition that you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel, so you won’t have to pay anything extra to be able to use the maximum potential of this caching system. The more powerful Virtual Private Server hosting plan you pick, the more system memory Memcached will have for content storage purposes, but you will have at least several hundred megabytes all the time, which is much more than what you’d get with a shared web hosting package. This will enable you to use the Memcached caching system for many websites, regardless of how heavy they are, which in turn means that you can use a less powerful package for them without overloading the server. The caching system is excellent for script-driven software apps such as WordPress, Joomla, OpenCart or Mambo, and you can use it even with a custom-developed app. Shortly after you enable the Memcached system, it will start caching information and you will detect the enhanced overall performance of your websites.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers
You can unlock the full potential of Memcached with every dedicated server offered by us if you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. A section in it is dedicated to the caching system and you can start using Memcached for any Internet site hosted on the server with only a couple of clicks. You can enhance the performance of any Internet site, no matter what script-driven web app you are using or how large the Internet site is, as the minimum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to use is three gigabytes and this amount rises significantly with the more powerful servers. Soon after the system is activated, it will begin caching data every time somebody visits your site, so, once enough content has been stored, you will see the decreased load on your dedicated machine and the optimized overall performance of your website. The Memcached system is used by numerous sites, including famous portals such as Wikipedia, Zynga and Reddit, which is a proof of the effectiveness of the caching system.
