Memcached is a distributed memory object caching system, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years because of its effectiveness. It’s used to cache requests and replies between a database and the app that is using it, which can boost the performance of your website and lessen the produced load substantially. Every time a web page on an application-driven Internet site is visited, the application connects to the database and "asks" what information should be shown, and then pulls it. With Memcached, these steps are skipped, since the platform has already cached all the content that should be displayed on a given page. In case any content is changed, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ too, so the site visitors will never end up seeing old data. The Memcached platform is an excellent option for any site that attracts plenty of visitors, as it will make it really fast and will enhance the user experience.
Memcached in Website Hosting
If you host script-based websites in a website hosting account with us, you can add Memcached to your shared web hosting package with just a couple of mouse clicks via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantly and, since the needed PHP extension is pre-installed on our advanced cloud 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 Internet sites will use Memcached) and to the memory that Memcached will use. The latter is offered in increments of 16 MB and you can order memory whenever you like. Naturally, the more memory Memcached is allowed to use, the more data it will cache, so if you manage a high-demand website with a lot of data, you may require more memory in order to be able to take advantage of the power that Memcached can give you.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can add the Memcached distributed memory object caching platform to any of the semi-dedicated hosting plans that we are offering and make use of its full potential for any script-driven Internet site hosted on our servers. The upgrade is accessible through the Hepsia Control Panel and you can choose two things – the number of instances and the memory. These things show how many sites can use the Memcached platform and the amount of memory that it will use to store your content. You can select them separately, since a given instance is not bound to a specific amount of system memory, so you can use lots of memory for a single resource-consuming Internet site, for instance. This upgrade is available in increments of 16 megabytes and you can get as much memory as you want. The Memcached platform can be used with any script-powered site irrespective of its type, including those that are based on popular Internet apps like Drupal, WordPress or Joomla, and a lot of companies like Zynga and Wikipedia are already using it to increase the speed of their sites.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers
When you obtain one of our dedicated web hosting plans and if you pick Hepsia as your web hosting Control Panel during the signup procedure, you’ll get the Memcached memory caching platform by default and you can enable it for each Internet site that you host on the dedicated server without installing or upgrading anything. It will begin storing information as users visit your Internet site, so you’ll detect the result 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 dedicate server package, the more memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will enable you to take advantage of the platform for lots of Internet sites or for a very popular website without weakening its efficacy. Memcached will enable you to boost the speed of any database-driven website very quickly – a Joomla portal, a WordPress online diary, an OpenCart web store, etcetera, and to optimize the overall performance of your dedicated machine.
