Memcached is an object caching platform, which has been gaining in popularity lately thanks to its effectiveness. It’s used to cache calls and replies between a database and the application that’s using it, which can accelerate the overall performance of your site and lessen the generated server load considerably. Every time a page on an app-driven site is accessed, the application connects to the database and "asks" what information should be shown, and then extracts it. With Memcached, these procedures are skipped, as the platform has already cached all of the content that should appear on a given webpage. In case any data is changed, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ too, so the users will never end up seeing out-of-date content. Memcached is a perfect solution for every Internet site that has a lot of viewers, as it will boost its speed and will improve the user experience.
Memcached in Shared Hosting
If you host script-driven websites in a shared hosting account with our company, you will be able to add the Memcached distributed memory caching system to your shared hosting plan with just a few mouse clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available immediately and, since the necessary PHP extension is pre-installed on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform, you can start using it straight away. To give you more flexibility, 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 add memory whenever you wish. Naturally, the more memory Memcached is permitted to use, the more content it will cache, so if you have a heavy-traffic website with a lot of data, you may require more memory in order to be able to make full use of the power that Memcached can offer you.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you decide to host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to take advantage of Memcached easily, since the data caching platform’s setup requires a few clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The PHP extension that is required is already installed on our semi-dedicated servers, so you can begin using the Memcached platform the moment you add it to your semi-dedicated server account. You will be able to select how many Internet sites can use it and how much data it will cache, i.e. there are two separate features that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the memory. You can order more of both, so if one of your websites becomes extremely busy, for example, you can always add more memory to it. Our system is stunningly flexible in this regard and we don’t tie a particular number of instances to a fixed amount of memory. You can take advantage of the Memcached caching platform to increase the loading speed of any script-powered Internet site, including those based on popular web apps, such as Joomla or WordPress.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers
You can unlock the full potential of Memcached with every dedicated server offered by our company if you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel. A special Control Panel section is dedicated to the distributed memory object caching system and you can start using Memcached for any Internet site hosted on the server with only a few clicks of the mouse. You can accelerate the overall performance of any website, irrespective of what script-powered 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 GB and this amount increases substantially with the higher-end dedicated servers. Shortly after the system is activated, it will begin caching info each time somebody accesses your site, so, as soon as enough information has been stored, you will perceive the lowered load on your dedicated server and the improved performance of the site. The Memcached caching system is being used by plenty of sites, including popular portals such as Reddit, Wikipedia and Zynga, which demonstrates the effectiveness of the Memcached caching system.
