Memcached is an object caching platform, which has been gaining popularity in recent years owing to its effectiveness. It is used to cache queries and responses between a database and the application that is using it, which can increase the performance of your site and decrease the created load considerably. Anytime a page on an app-driven website is visited, the app connects to the database and "asks" what info should be displayed, and then pulls it. With Memcached, these steps are omitted, as the platform has already cached all of the content that should be shown on a specific page. If any content is changed, the Memcached content is updated as well, so the website visitors will never end up seeing out-of-date data. The platform is an ideal choice for every website that entices a lot of viewers, since it will make it astonishingly fast and will enhance the overall user experience.
Memcached in Shared Website Hosting
Memcached comes as an upgrade with each and every shared website hosting package offered by our company and in case you wish to use it for any script-driven site that you host on our avant-garde cloud web hosting platform, you’ll be able to add it in a couple of simple steps through your Hepsia Control Panel. In the meantime, you’ll be offered the option to upgrade two separate things – the instances and the system memory. The first one refers to the number of the Internet sites that can use the Memcached content caching system simultaneously, so if you need it for several websites, you can get a handful of instances. The second one refers to the total amount of memory that Memcached will be permitted to use to cache data, so for numerous sites (or for one single resource-intensive site), you’d better order more memory for better results. The memory is available in increments of 16 MB and more memory can be ordered at any time. With the Memcached caching system, each script-based website hosted on our servers will load incredibly fast.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you obtain one of our semi-dedicated server packages, you will find Memcached as an optional upgrade in the Upgrades part of your Hepsia Control Panel, so if you wish to use it for any of the sites hosted in the account, you can enable it with just a few mouse clicks. The content caching platform is ideal for any script-based software application like WordPress, Joomla, or even a tailor-made one, and based on your needs, you’ll be able to select two separate things – how many websites will use the Memcached caching platform, i.e. the number of instances; and how much information will be stored, i.e. the amount of system memory that the platform will use. The two features are not tied to each other, so if you have a regularly visited website with a lot of data, you can get one instance and a larger amount of system memory. The Memcached caching platform will boost the overall performance of your websites soon after you enable it and both you and your website visitors will enjoy much faster load speeds.
Memcached in VPS
Memcached comes as standard with all VPS services ordered with our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel. The PHP extension it requires to perform correctly is compiled when the virtual server is configured, so you can begin using the caching platform as soon as your brand-new VPS server is completely operational. The system memory that the Memcached platform can employ depends on the given Virtual Private Server plan, but even with the lower-end plans, you’ll get several hundred megabytes that will be at your disposal for this platform exclusively. This will allow you to boost the performance of multiple sites hosted on the server at the same time and to lower the load even if you have large-scale script-powered web pages with numerous viewers. The Memcached platform can be used with any script – Drupal, Joomla or Mambo, or a custom-built one, and you’ll see the faster overall performance shortly after you start using it.
Memcached in Dedicated Hosting
You can unlock the full potential of Memcached with every dedicated server that we’re offering in case you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. A special 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 accelerate the performance of any Internet site, regardless of what script-powered app you rely on or how large the website is, since the minimum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to use is 3 GB and this amount grows immensely with the more powerful dedicated servers. Shortly after the system is activated, it will begin caching information every time someone browses your site, so, once enough info has been stored, you will distinguish the decreased server load and the improved performance of your Internet site. Memcached is being used by a lot of sites, including popular portals like Wikipedia, Zynga and Reddit, which verifies the effectiveness of the Memcached system.
