Memcached is a distributed memory caching platform, which has been gaining in popularity lately due to its effectiveness. It is used to cache queries and responses between a database and the app that uses it, which can increase the performance of your Internet site and lessen the produced load greatly. Every time a webpage on an app-powered 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 skipped, since the platform has already cached all the content that should be displayed on a certain page. If any content is changed, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ too, so the users will never end up seeing outdated data. The Memcached platform is a perfect solution for every Internet site that lures numerous viewers, as it will make it faster than the blink of an eye and will enhance the user experience.
Memcached in Shared Website Hosting
If you host script-powered websites in a shared website hosting account with us, you’ll be able to add the Memcached object caching system to your shared web hosting plan with only a couple of clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available immediately and, since the required PHP extension is already installed on our leading-edge cloud website hosting platform, you can start using it straight away. To give you more versatility, we offer two separate upgrades related to the number of instances (i.e. how many websites will use Memcached) and to the amount of memory that Memcached will use. The latter comes in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order as much memory as you want. Logically, the more memory the Memcached caching system is allowed to use, the more data it will cache, so if you’ve got a high-traffic website with lots of data, you may require more memory to be able to make full use of the power that Memcached can give you.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can get the Memcached distributed memory caching system as an optional upgrade with each of our semi-dedicated hosting services and since it works with any script-based software app, you can use it for any website that you host on our platform, irrespective of what app you have used – WordPress, Joomla or Mambo, a custom-developed application, etc. You can add the upgrade via the respective section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel from which you administer your semi-dedicated server account, and you can choose two separate things – the number of instances and the amount of memory that they will use. Basically, these things indicate the number of the websites that will use Memcached and how much system memory the system will be able to use in order to store your information. The two things are offered independently for more freedom and one instance does not come with a pre-defined amount of system memory. You can make use of the Memcached system with any kind of site and both you and the visitors will quickly note the difference in the performance.
Memcached in VPS Hosting
If you order a virtual private server from us, you’ll be able to use Memcached at no extra fee, as the object caching platform is offered with all virtual servers that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. Even if you own large-size Internet sites, you’ll be able to accelerate their overall performance with no effort and the decreased load on the VPS will permit you to keep using your current Virtual Private Server hosting plan instead of upgrading to a more powerful one. The amount of memory that the Memcached caching platform can use to cache data depends on the plan that you’re using, but even with a lower-end one, you’ll have no less than several hundred megabytes, which is considerably more than what you’d get with a shared hosting plan, so the website performance boost will be enormous. You can take advantage of the Memcached platform with any database-powered app, irrespective of whether you’ve written it yourself or you’re using a ready-made one such as OpenCart, Joomla or WordPress.
Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting
If you acquire one of our Linux dedicated hosting services and if you select Hepsia as your website hosting Control Panel during the signup process, you will get the Memcached platform as standard and you can set it up for each site that you host on the dedicated machine without installing or upgrading anything. It will start storing data as users visit your website, so you’ll notice the results of using it soon after that. The minimum amount of system memory that will be available to the caching platform is 3 gigabytes and normally, the more powerful the dedicated package, the more system memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will enable you to take advantage of the platform for a lot of sites or for an extremely popular site without compromising its effectiveness. The Memcached caching platform will allow you to optimize the speed of any database-driven site in no time – a Joomla portal, a WordPress personal journal, an OpenCart web shop, etcetera, and to boost the overall performance of your dedicated server.
