Memcached is a distributed memory object caching platform, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years due to its effectiveness. It’s used to cache queries and replies between a database and the application that’s using it, which can boost the performance of your site and reduce the produced server load substantially. Every time a web page on an application-driven website is visited, the app connects to the database and "asks" what information should be shown, and then fetches it. With Memcached, these procedures are skipped, as the platform has already cached all of the content that should appear on a specific page. If any data is changed, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ too, so the site visitors will never see out-of-date data. The platform is an ideal solution for any Internet site that lures plenty of viewers, as it will make it really fast and will enhance the overall user experience.
Memcached in Cloud Website Hosting
When you host script-driven sites in a cloud website hosting
account with us, you will be able to add the Memcached data caching system to your shared hosting plan with just a couple of clicks of the mouse from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantaneously and, since the necessary PHP extension is already installed on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform, you can begin using it right away. To give you more flexibility, we offer two different upgrades related to the number of instances (i.e. how many Internet sites will use Memcached) and to the amount of memory that the Memcached caching system will use. The latter comes in increments of 16 megabytes and you can add as much memory as you wish. Logically, the more memory Memcached is allowed to use, the more content it will cache, so in case you run a resource-requiring site with lots of content, you may require more memory in order to be able to make the most of the power that Memcached can give you.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you get one of our semi-dedicated server
packages, you’ll find Memcached as an optional feature in the Upgrades section of your Hepsia Control Panel, so if you want to use it for any of the websites hosted in the account, you can enable it with only a few clicks. The distributed memory object caching platform is ideal for any script-powered software application such as WordPress, Joomla™
, or even a custom-made application, and based on your demands, you’ll be able to choose two different features – how many sites will use the Memcached platform, i.e. the number of instances; and how much info will be stored, i.e. the amount of system memory that the platform will employ. The two things are not bound to each other, so if you own a popular Internet site with a lot of data, you can get one instance and a larger amount of system memory. Memcached will improve the performance of your websites shortly after you enable it and both you and your site visitors will enjoy much better loading times.
Memcached in VPS
You will get Memcached with any of the virtual private server
plans that we are offering when you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel and you will be able to activate the distributed memory caching platform via the Control Panel section with the exact same name. The configuration requires a couple of clicks and you’ll distinguish the difference in the performance of your websites almost immediately. The amount of memory that Memcached can employ to store information depends on the given Virtual Private Server hosting plan that you have chosen, but in any case it will be at least several hundred MB, which is quite enough even for several resource-requiring Internet sites. You can use the Memcached platform with sites powered by Joomla™
, WordPress or any other web app and lower the load on your server, which will permit you to keep using the current Virtual Private Server package instead of migrating to a more powerful one, since you simply won’t need it. Memcached is already being used by popular websites like Zynga, Wikipedia and Reddit, which demonstrates its efficacy.
Memcached in Dedicated Hosting
When you purchase one of our Linux dedicated hosting services
and if you pick Hepsia as your website hosting Control Panel on the order form, you’ll get the Memcached platform as standard and you can enable it for any site that you host on your server without installing or upgrading anything. It will begin storing info as users visit your site, so you will detect the results of using it shortly after that. The minimum amount of memory that will be available to the Memcached platform is 3 GB and normally, the more powerful the package, the more system memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will permit you to take advantage of the platform for lots of Internet sites or for a very popular site without compromising its efficacy. The Memcached platform will allow you to optimize the speed of any database-powered website very quickly – a Joomla™
portal, a WordPress personal blog, an OpenCart e-store, etc., and to enhance the overall performance of your dedicated server.
