Memcached is a data caching system, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years thanks to its efficiency. It is used to cache calls and replies between a database and the app that is using it, which can increase the overall performance of your website and decrease the produced load substantially. Anytime a web page on an application-powered site is visited, the app connects to the database and "asks" what info should be displayed, and then fetches it. With Memcached, these procedures are omitted, since the platform has already cached the content that should be shown on a specific webpage. In case any content is edited, the Memcached content is updated too, so the site visitors will never end up seeing outdated data. The Memcached platform is an ideal choice for every website that attracts lots of visitors, since it will make it faster than light and will enhance the user experience.
Memcached in Shared Hosting
You can make use of Memcached with all shared service offered by us. It is available as an optional upgrade, which you can add with only a few mouse clicks through your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. It needs an extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud platform, so you can begin using the Memcached caching system the moment you add it. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts, which will offer you more versatility depending on the Internet sites that you’d like to use it for. The first part specifies the number of the Internet sites that will use the Memcached caching system, or the so-called ‘instances’, whereas the second one is related to the system memory, in other words – to how much content the system will be able to cache. You can add more memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you’ve added, the more content will be cached, which may be a rather good idea for frequently visited sites with large-sized databases and a lot of concurrent visitors. Thus, you can improve the speed of every script-based site hosted on our servers with ease.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can get the Memcached distributed memory object caching system as an optional upgrade with each of our Linux semi-dedicated service and since it works with any script-powered web app, you can use it for every website that you host on our servers, no matter what app you have used – WordPress, Joomla or Mambo, a custom-created one, etc. You can order the upgrade from the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel from which you manage your semi-dedicated server account, and you can select two separate features – the number of instances and the amount of system memory that they will use. In simple terms, these things indicate how many Internet sites will use the Memcached caching system and the total amount of memory that the system will be able to use to cache your content. The two things are ordered separately for more freedom and one instance does not come bundled with a pre-defined amount of system memory. You can make use of the Memcached system with any type of website and both you and your visitors will swiftly see the difference in the performance.
Memcached in VPS Servers
Memcached is included by default with each VPS server that we offer on the condition that you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel, so you will not need to pay anything extra to be able to take advantage of the maximum potential of this memory caching system. The more powerful package you select, the more memory Memcached will have for information storage purposes, but you’ll have at least several hundred MB all the time, which is much more than the amount of memory you would get with a shared package. This will allow you to use the Memcached system for numerous sites, irrespective of how busy they are, which in turn goes to say that you can use a low-end package for them without overloading the Virtual Private Server. The caching system is excellent for script-powered web apps like WordPress, OpenCart, Joomla or Mambo, and you can use it even with a custom-made app. Shortly after you activate the Memcached caching system, it will start caching data and you will observe the improved performance of your sites.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers
You can make use of the full potential of Memcached with every dedicated server that we are offering if you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. A special section in it is dedicated to the content caching system and you can start using Memcached for any website hosted on the dedicated machine with only a couple of clicks of the mouse. You can increase the performance of any website, regardless of what script-driven app you rely on or how popular the site is, since the minimum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to employ is 3 gigabytes and this amount rises seriously with the more powerful servers. Soon after the system is enabled, it will start caching info anytime someone visits your site, so, as soon as sufficient data has been cached, you will see the lowered load on the dedicated server and the enhanced overall performance of your site. Memcached is being used by numerous websites, including popular portals such as Wikipedia, Reddit and Zynga, which shows the effectiveness of the Memcached caching system.
