Memcached is a caching platform, which has been gaining popularity in recent years due to its effectiveness. It is used to cache requests and replies between a database and the app that is using it, which can increase the overall performance of your Internet site and lessen the produced server load substantially. Anytime a web page on an application-driven Internet site is accessed, the app connects to the database and "asks" what information should be shown, and then drags it. With Memcached, these procedures are skipped, since the platform has already cached the content that should show up on a particular page. In case any data is modified, the Memcached content is updated too, so the visitors will never end up seeing old content. The Memcached platform is an ideal option for any website that has a lot of viewers, since it will make it ultra-fast and will improve the user experience.
Memcached in Shared Web Hosting
When you host script-driven websites in a shared web hosting account with our company, you can add the Memcached object caching system to your shared web hosting plan with just a couple of mouse clicks via your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available immediately and, since the necessary extension is pre-installed on our innovative cloud web hosting platform, you can start using it straight away. To give you more flexibility, we offer two different upgrades related to the number of instances (in other words – how many Internet sites will use Memcached) and to the amount of system memory that the Memcached caching system will use. The latter is offered in increments of 16 MB and you can add as much memory as you need. Logically, the more memory Memcached is permitted to use, the more content it will cache, so if you have a traffic-intensive website with lots of data, you may need more memory to be able to make full use of the power that Memcached can offer you.
Memcached in VPS Servers
Memcached comes by default with each and every VPS server offered by our company provided that you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel, so you won’t need to pay anything extra to be able to take advantage of the power of this memory caching system. The more powerful plan you pick, the more system memory Memcached will have for content caching purposes, but you’ll have no less than several hundred megabytes at all times, which is much more than what you’d get with a shared web hosting package. This will permit you to use the Memcached caching system for a lot of websites, regardless of how busy they are, which in turn means that you can use a low-end plan for them without overloading the Virtual Private Server. The caching system is perfect for script-powered web apps like OpenCart, WordPress, Joomla or Mambo, and you can use it even with a custom-made app. Shortly after you activate Memcached, it will begin caching info and you’ll observe the optimized performance of your websites.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers
Memcached comes for free with all dedicated web hosting plans offered by us and the one and only requirement is that the server must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. You can use the distributed memory object caching system for any database-driven website, including those that are based on popular software applications – for example, a WordPress personal journal or a Joomla-driven social networking website. Each server is tied to a particular amount of memory that Memcached can employ, but the minimum you’ll get is 3 gigabytes, which is quite enough to boost the loading speed of very large websites considerably, as this very memory will be dedicated to storing the cached data. The system will start storing information as soon as it is activated, so soon after that, you will observe the improved overall performance of your sites and the reduced load on your server. Plenty of Internet sites use the Memcached system to boost their effectiveness, among them famous ones like Reddit and Wikipedia.
