Memcached is a distributed memory object caching system, which has been gaining popularity in recent years owing to its effectiveness. It is used to cache requests and responses between a database and the application that is using it, which can accelerate the performance of your Internet site and lessen the generated server load immensely. Every time a page on an app-driven site is opened, the application connects to the database and "asks" what information should be shown, and then fetches it. With Memcached, these procedures are skipped, since the platform has already cached the content that should show up on a given webpage. If any content is updated, the Memcached content is updated as well, so the site visitors will never see old data. The platform is an ideal solution for any site that entices a lot of visitors, as it will make it blazing-fast and will improve the user experience.
Memcached in Cloud Hosting
The Memcached memory caching system is available as an upgrade with each cloud service
that we are offering and you’ll be able to begin using it once you add it, as the PHP extension that it needs so as to run correctly is already installed on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform. You can request the upgrade via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is available with each shared web hosting plan and a brand-new section where you can administer Memcached will appear. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts – the number of instances and the amount of memory, so as to give you more versatility. The first one shows the number of the Internet sites that can use Memcached, whereas the second, which is offered in increments of 16 megabytes, specifies the maximum size of the content that can be cached by the system. A traffic-intensive site with a large database may need more memory to take an even greater advantage of the Memcached caching system, so in case you’d like to upgrade this feature, you’ll be able to do it at any given moment with a couple of clicks.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can get the Memcached memory caching system as an optional upgrade with all our semi-dedicated services
and since it works with any script-driven web app, you can use it for every Internet site that you host on our platform, irrespective of what app you have used – WordPress, Mambo or Joomla™
, a custom-built one, etc. You can order the upgrade via the respective section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel from which you manage your semi-dedicated account, and you can choose two different things – the instances and the amount of system memory that they will use. To put it simply, these things determine how many sites will use Memcached and the maximum amount of memory that the system will be able to use to cache your info. The two things are ordered separately for more flexibility and one instance does not come with a particular amount of system memory. You can take full advantage of the Memcached system with any kind of website and both you and the site visitors will swiftly detect the difference in the performance.
Memcached in VPS
Memcached is included by default with each virtual private server
that we offer as long as you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel, so you will not need to pay any extra cash to be able to take advantage of the full potential of this object caching system. The more powerful plan you select, the more system memory Memcached will have for content storage purposes, but you’ll have no less than several hundred MB at all times, which is much more than what you would get with a shared plan. This will allow you to use Memcached for many sites, no matter how large they are, which in turn means that you can use a less powerful package for them without overloading your virtual server. The caching system is suitable for script-based web applications like Joomla™
, OpenCart, WordPress or Mambo, and you can utilize it even with a custom-built app. Soon after you enable the Memcached system, it will start caching info and you’ll detect the optimized overall performance of your sites.
Memcached in Dedicated Hosting
You can take advantage of the full potential of Memcached with each dedicated server
that we are offering in case you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel. A special Control Panel section is dedicated to the distributed memory caching system and you can begin using Memcached for any website hosted on the machine with only several mouse clicks. You can increase the performance of any Internet site, irrespective of what script-based software app you’re using or how large the website is, as the minimum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to employ is 3 gigabytes and this amount grows seriously with the higher-end dedicated servers. Soon after the caching system is activated, it will start caching information every time somebody opens your website, so, as soon as enough info has been cached, you’ll perceive the reduced load on the dedicated machine and the improved overall performance of your site. The Memcached system is used by plenty of websites, among them famous portals like Zynga, Wikipedia and Reddit, which confirms the efficiency of the Memcached system.
