Memcached is a data caching platform, which has been gaining in popularity lately thanks to its efficiency. It is used to cache calls and replies between a database and the app that uses it, which can enhance the overall performance of your site and decrease the generated load drastically. Every time a webpage on an app-driven site is visited, the app connects to the database and "asks" what information should be displayed, and then extracts it. With Memcached, these procedures are skipped, since the platform has already cached all of the content that should be displayed on a certain web page. When any content is changed, the Memcached content is updated as well, so the users will never end up seeing out-of-date data. The platform is a perfect solution for any site that entices numerous visitors, since it will make it open faster and will enhance the overall user experience.
Memcached in Shared Web Hosting
You can take advantage of the Memcached memory caching system with all shared web hosting plans
that we are offering. It’s offered as an optional upgrade, which you can add with only a few clicks of the mouse through your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. It needs an extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud website hosting platform, so you can start using the Memcached caching system as soon as you add it. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts, which will offer you more versatility depending on the sites that you want to use it for. The first part indicates the number of the Internet sites that will use Memcached, or the so-called ‘instances’, while the second one refers to the memory, i.e. to how much content the system will be able to cache. You can get more system memory in increments of 16 MB and the more memory you’ve got, the more content will be cached, which may be an exceptionally good idea for traffic-intensive sites with large-size databases and plenty of concurrent visitors. Thus, you can accelerate the performance of every script-driven Internet site hosted on our servers without efforts.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can add the Memcached data caching platform to any of the Linux semi-dedicated servers
offered by our company and make use of its full potential for any script-driven site hosted by us. The upgrade is available through the Hepsia Control Panel and you can choose two features – the number of instances and the memory. These things specify how many sites can use Memcached and how much system memory it will use to store your content. You can select them separately, since one instance is not tied to a fixed amount of memory, so you can use plenty of memory for a single traffic-heavy Internet site, for instance. This feature is available in increments of 16 MB and you can get as much memory as you need. The Memcached platform can be used with any script-powered website regardless of its type, including those that are based on popular Internet apps like WordPress, Drupal™
, and plenty of companies such as Wikipedia and Zynga are already using it to increase the overall performance of their websites.
Memcached in VPS Servers
You will get Memcached with each of the VPS server
packages that we are offering if you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel and you will be able to activate the platform via the section with the same name. The activation requires a few mouse clicks and you will notice the difference in the overall performance of your Internet sites almost immediately. The amount of memory that the Memcached caching platform can use to store data depends on the particular VPS package that you’ve selected, but at any rate it will not be less than several hundred megabytes, which is more than enough even for multiple intense-traffic websites. You can use the Memcached platform with sites based on Joomla™
, WordPress or any other script and reduce the load on your virtual machine, which will enable you to continue using the current Virtual Private Server hosting package instead of upgrading to a more powerful one, since you simply won’t need it. Memcached is already being used by popular websites like Zynga, Reddit and Wikipedia, which demonstrates its efficiency.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers
Memcached is available free of charge with all dedicated servers
offered by our company and the one and only condition is that the dedicated server must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. You can use the object caching system for any database-powered site, including those that are based on popular web-based applications – for instance, a WordPress blog or a Joomla™
-driven community site. Each dedicated server is tied to a particular amount of memory that the Memcached caching system can employ, but the minimum you’ll get is three gigabytes, which is quite enough to enhance the load speed of extremely busy websites substantially, since this memory will be dedicated to storing the cached data. The Memcached system will start storing info as soon as it is activated, so shortly thereafter, you’ll see the improved performance of your sites and the lowered load on the server. Lots of Internet sites use the Memcached caching system to enhance their effectiveness, among them popular ones like Wikipedia and Reddit.
