Memcached is a distributed memory caching system, which has been gaining in popularity lately due to its efficiency. It is used to cache queries and responses between a database and the application that uses it, which can improve the overall performance of your Internet site and lessen the generated load significantly. Anytime a webpage on an application-driven Internet site is visited, the app connects to the database and "asks" what information should be shown, and then drags it. With Memcached, these procedures are omitted, as the platform has already cached all the content that should appear on a given webpage. When any data is edited, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the users will never end up seeing old data. The Memcached platform is an excellent choice for any website that entices numerous viewers, since it will make it faster than the blink of an eye and will improve the overall user experience.
Memcached in Shared Hosting
If you host script-powered websites in a shared hosting account with us, you will be able to add the Memcached distributed memory object caching system to your plan with just a few mouse clicks through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available immediately and, since the PHP extension needed for it is pre-installed on our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform, you can begin using it right away. To give you more versatility, we offer two separate upgrades related to the number of instances (in other words – how many websites will use Memcached) and to the amount of system memory that the Memcached caching system will use. The latter is available in increments of 16 MB and you can add memory as many times as you need. Logically, the more memory the Memcached caching system is allowed to use, the more content it will cache, so in case you own a traffic-hungry site with lots of content, you may need more memory so as to be able to make the most of the power that Memcached can give you.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you acquire one of our semi-dedicated server plans, you will find Memcached as an optional upgrade in the Upgrades section of your Hepsia Control Panel, so if you’d like to use it for any of the sites hosted in your semi-dedicated account, you can enable it with just a couple of mouse clicks. The distributed memory caching platform is ideal for any script-driven app like Joomla, WordPress, or even an in-house built one, and based on your needs, you will be able to select two separate things – how many sites will use the Memcached platform, in other words – the number of instances; and how much info will be cached, i.e. the amount of system memory that the platform will employ. The two things are not tied to each other, so if you run a frequently visited site with a lot of data, you can order one instance and a larger amount of system memory. The Memcached caching platform will accelerate the performance of your websites soon after you activate it and both you and your website visitors will enjoy faster load speeds.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers
You can use the full potential of Memcached with each dedicated server that we’re offering in case you select Hepsia as your Control Panel. A special Control Panel section is dedicated to the memory caching system and you can start using Memcached for any Internet site hosted on the server with only several clicks of the mouse. You can increase the performance of any site, irrespective of what script-based web app you rely on or how busy the site is, since the minimum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to employ is 3 gigabytes and this amount increases seriously with the higher-end servers. Shortly after the caching system is enabled, it will start caching info every time someone opens your website, so, once sufficient information has been stored, you will detect the reduced load on your server and the enhanced performance of the site. The Memcached system is used by a lot of sites, among them popular portals such as Reddit, Zynga and Wikipedia, which demonstrates the efficiency of the Memcached caching system.
