Memcached is a memory caching platform, which has been gaining popularity in recent years because of its efficiency. It’s used to cache requests and replies between a database and the app that is using it, which can improve the overall performance of your site and decrease the created server load greatly. Every time a web page on an application-driven website is visited, the application connects to the database and "asks" what info should be shown, and then pulls it. With Memcached, these procedures are skipped, since the platform has already cached all the content that should be shown on a certain page. When any content is modified, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the users will never end up seeing old data. The platform is an ideal option for every website that draws numerous viewers, as it will make it ultra-fast and will enhance the overall user experience.
Memcached in Shared Hosting
If you host script-driven sites in a shared hosting account with our company, you will be able to add the Memcached object caching system to your hosting plan with only a few clicks through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available momentarily and, since the PHP extension required for it is pre-installed on our innovative cloud platform, you can begin using it straight away. To give you more versatility, we offer two separate upgrades related to the number of instances (i.e. how many Internet sites will use Memcached) and to the memory that the Memcached caching system will use. The latter is available in increments of 16 MB and you can order as much memory as you like. Logically, the more memory the Memcached caching system is permitted to use, the more content it will cache, so if you’ve got a resource-demanding website with lots of data, you may need more memory so as to be able to take advantage of the power that Memcached can give you.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can add Memcached to any of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we’re offering and make use of its full potential for any script-powered site hosted on our servers. The upgrade is accessible through the Hepsia Control Panel and you can select two things – the instances and the system memory. These things define how many websites can use the Memcached platform and how much memory it will use to store your data. You can select them independently, since one instance is not linked to a particular amount of system memory, so you can use plenty of memory for a single large-scale Internet site, for example. This feature comes in increments of 16 megabytes and you can get as much memory as you wish. The Memcached platform can be used with any script-driven site regardless of its type, including those based on widely used software apps like WordPress, Drupal or Joomla, and a lot of companies like Zynga and Wikipedia are already using it to accelerate the speed of their websites.
Memcached in VPS Web Hosting
When you get a virtual private server from our company, you will be able to use Memcached at no additional price, as the data caching platform is available with all virtual servers ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. Even if you run traffic-hungry websites, you’ll be able to improve their performance with ease and the lowered load on your VPS server will enable you to continue using your current Virtual Private Server hosting plan rather than upgrading to a more powerful one. The amount of system memory that the Memcached platform can use to cache info depends on the package that you’re using, but even with a low-end one, you’ll have at least several hundred MB, which is considerably more than what you’d get with a shared plan, so the website performance boost will be significant. You can use Memcached with any database-driven app, no matter if you’ve developed it yourself or you are using a ready-made one like OpenCart, Joomla or WordPress.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting
If you acquire one of our Linux dedicated servers hosting and if you select Hepsia as your website hosting Control Panel during the signup process, you will get the Memcached distributed memory object caching platform by default and you can enable it for any Internet site that you host on the server without upgrading or installing anything. It will begin caching content as people visit your site, so you will notice the effect of using it shortly thereafter. The minimum amount of memory that will be available to the Memcached platform is 3 gigabytes and naturally, the more powerful the dedicated plan, the more memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will allow you to take advantage of the platform for a large number of sites or for a very large Internet site without weakening its efficacy. The Memcached caching platform will permit you to accelerate the speed of any database-powered site in no time – a Joomla portal, a WordPress personal weblog, an OpenCart web shop, etcetera, and to boost the performance of your dedicated machine.
