Memcached is a distributed memory object caching system, which has been gaining popularity lately due to its efficiency. It’s used to cache calls and responses between a database and the application that’s using it, which can enhance the overall performance of your website and reduce the created load substantially. Anytime a webpage on an application-driven website is accessed, the app connects to the database and "asks" what information should be shown, and then fetches it. With Memcached, these procedures are omitted, since the platform has already cached the content that should appear on a particular web page. If any content is edited, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ too, so the visitors will never see old data. The Memcached platform is an ideal solution for any website that has a lot of visitors, since it will make it lightning-fast and will improve the overall user experience.
Memcached in Shared Hosting
Memcached comes as an optional upgrade with each shared hosting package that we are offering and in case you’d like to use it for any script-driven site that you host on our avant-garde cloud hosting platform, you’ll be able to order it in a few simple steps via your Hepsia Control Panel. During the process, you’ll get the option to upgrade two separate things – the instances and the memory. The first one is related to the number of the websites that can use the Memcached content caching system simultaneously, so if you need it for several Internet sites, you can get a handful of instances. The second one has to do with the total amount of memory that Memcached will be permitted to use in order to cache content, so for plenty of sites (or for one resource-requiring site), you should order more memory for improved performance. The memory comes in increments of 16 MB and more memory can be ordered at any point. With the Memcached caching system, every script-powered site hosted on our cloud servers will open unbelievably fast.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you acquire one of our semi-dedicated server plans, you will find Memcached as an optional upgrade in the Upgrades section of the Hepsia Control Panel, so if you wish to use it for any of the sites hosted in your account, you can add it with only a few clicks. The content caching platform is ideal for any script-based web app like Joomla, WordPress, or even an in-house built app, and based on your requirements, you’ll be able to select two separate features – how many Internet sites will use the Memcached caching platform, in other words – the number of instances; and how much info will be cached, i.e. the amount of system memory that the platform will use. The two features are not bound to each other, so if you run a popular site with a lot of content, you can order one instance and a larger amount of memory. The Memcached platform will boost the overall performance of your websites shortly after you enable it and both you and your visitors will enjoy much better loading speeds.
Memcached in VPS Servers
Memcached is included by default with every VPS server offered by our company provided that you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel, so you will not have to pay anything extra to be able to make the most of the potential of this object caching system. The more powerful package you choose, the more memory Memcached will have for information caching purposes, but you’ll have at least several hundred megabytes all the time, which is much more than what you would get with a shared package. This will allow you to use Memcached for plenty of websites, regardless of how heavy they are, which in turn goes to say that you can use a low-end plan for them without overloading the VPS server. The caching system is suitable for script-powered web applications such as Joomla, OpenCart, WordPress or Mambo, and you can utilize it even with a custom-developed app. Soon after you enable the Memcached caching system, it will begin storing data and you’ll perceive the optimized performance of your websites.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers
Memcached is available for free with all dedicated web hosting plans that we are offering and the sole condition is that the dedicated machine must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. You can use the content caching system for any database-powered site, including those based on popular web-based apps – for example, a WordPress weblog or a Joomla-powered social networking website. Each dedicated server comes with a specific amount of system memory that the Memcached system can use, but the minimum amount you will get is 3 GB, which is sufficient enough to increase the load speed of extremely large websites greatly, as this memory will be dedicated to storing the cached content. The Memcached system will start storing data the moment it’s activated, so shortly after that, you will distinguish the optimized overall performance of your Internet sites and the reduced load on the dedicated machine. Many sites use the Memcached system to enhance their efficiency, among them popular ones like Reddit and Wikipedia.
