Memcached is a caching system, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years thanks to its effectiveness. It is used to cache requests and replies between a database and the application that is using it, which can boost the overall performance of your website and lessen the produced server load greatly. Every time a webpage on an application-driven Internet site is opened, the app connects to the database and "asks" what information should be displayed, and then fetches it. With Memcached, these procedures are skipped, as the platform has already cached all the content that should appear on a given web page. If any content is modified, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ too, so the visitors will never end up seeing outdated data. Memcached is an excellent choice for every website that lures numerous visitors, since it will make it really fast and will enhance the overall user experience.
Memcached in Cloud Web Hosting
The Memcached content caching system comes as an optional upgrade with every cloud web hosting that we offer and you’ll be able to start using it once you enable it, since the extension that it needs so as to run properly is already present on our advanced cloud website hosting platform. You can order the upgrade via the Hepsia Control Panel, which is available with each and every shared web hosting package and a new Control Panel section where you can manage Memcached will show up. The upgrade is separated into two parts – the instances and the memory, so as to offer you more versatility. The first one shows the number of the websites that can use the Memcached caching system, while the second one, which is offered in increments of 16 MB, determines the maximum size of the content that can be cached by the system. A busy website with a large database may require more memory in order to take an even bigger advantage of the Memcached caching system, so if you want to upgrade this service, you will be able to do it at any time with a few mouse clicks.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can get the Memcached distributed memory caching system as an upgrade with all our Linux semi-dedicated servers and since it works with any script-driven web application, you can use it for any website that you host on our platform, no matter what application you have used – Mambo, Joomla or WordPress, a custom-developed app, etc. You can order the upgrade via the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel from which you manage your semi-dedicated account, and you can select two different features – the number of instances and the amount of memory that they will use. To put it in simple terms, these things define how many websites will use the Memcached system and the amount of system memory that the system will be able to use in order to store your content. The two things are ordered separately for more freedom and one instance does not come with a pre-defined amount of memory. You can take full advantage of the Memcached system with any kind of website and both you and the website visitors will swiftly detect the difference in the overall performance.
Memcached in VPS Servers
You will get Memcached with any of the VPS server packages that we offer in case you select Hepsia as your Control Panel and you will be able to activate the object caching platform via the Control Panel section with the same name. The configuration requires a couple of clicks and you will detect the difference in the performance of your sites almost immediately. The amount of memory that the Memcached caching platform can employ to store content depends on the particular VPS hosting plan that you have picked, but in any case it won’t be less than several hundred MB, which is quite enough even for multiple traffic-hungry sites. You can use Memcached with websites based on WordPress, Joomla or any other web-based app and lower the load on your virtual server, which will enable you to continue using the current Virtual Private Server hosting package rather than upgrading to a more powerful one, since you simply won’t need it. Memcached is already being used by famous websites like Wikipedia, Zynga and Reddit, which proves its effectiveness.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers
You can use 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 data caching system and you can start using Memcached for any Internet site hosted on the server with just a few clicks of the mouse. You can increase the overall performance of any Internet site, no matter what script-powered app you are using or how large the website is, as the minimum amount of system memory that Memcached will be able to use is 3 gigabytes and this amount increases considerably with the more powerful servers. Shortly after the caching system is activated, it will begin caching content each time somebody opens your site, so, once sufficient data has been stored, you will notice the reduced load on your dedicated server and the enhanced overall performance of your Internet site. The Memcached caching system is used by many sites, including famous portals like Reddit, Wikipedia and Zynga, which proves the efficiency of the Memcached caching system.
