Memcached is a distributed memory object caching system, which has been gaining popularity in recent years owing to its efficiency. It’s used to cache requests and responses between a database and the application that’s using it, which can accelerate the performance of your Internet site and lessen the created server load considerably. Every time a page on an application-powered Internet site is visited, the app connects to the database and "asks" what information should be shown, and then extracts it. With Memcached, these steps are omitted, since the platform has already cached the content that should appear on a specific webpage. In case any content is changed, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ too, so the visitors will never see out-of-date content. Memcached is a perfect option for any website that has a lot of visitors, since it will boost its speed and will improve the overall user experience.
Memcached in Shared Website Hosting
The Memcached object caching system comes as an upgrade with each shared website hosting package that we are offering and you’ll be able to start using it as soon as you add it, as the extension that it requires in order to run properly is already present on our leading-edge cloud website hosting platform. You can request the upgrade via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with every web hosting plan and a brand new Control Panel section where you can administer Memcached will appear. The upgrade is separated into two parts – the number of instances and the amount of system memory, so as to offer you more versatility. The first one refers to the number of the Internet sites that can use the Memcached caching system, while the second one, which comes in increments of 16 MB, indicates the maximum size of the content that can be cached by the system. A traffic-intensive Internet site with a large-size database may need more memory in order to take an even bigger advantage of Memcached, so in case you want to upgrade this feature, you will be able to do it at any given time with a few clicks.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can add the Memcached distributed memory caching platform to any of the semi-dedicated hosting that we’re offering and use its full potential for any script-powered website hosted on our servers. The upgrade is accessible through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can select two things – the number of instances and the memory. These things indicate the number of the websites that can use Memcached and the amount of system memory that it will use to store your info. You can choose them separately, since a given instance is not tied to a specific amount of system memory, so you can use a lot of memory for a single resource-heavy website, for example. This feature is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order as much memory as you need. The platform can be used with any script-powered website irrespective of its type, including those that are based on widely used Internet applications like Drupal, Joomla or WordPress, and lots of companies like Zynga and Wikipedia are already using it to enhance the loading speed of their sites.
Memcached in VPS Hosting
Memcached is offered by default with each virtual private server that we are offering provided that you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel, so you will not need to pay any extra cash to be able to use the full power of this distributed memory caching system. The more powerful Virtual Private Server hosting package you choose, the more system memory Memcached will have for content caching purposes, but you will have at least several hundred MB at all times, which is much more than what you would get with a shared hosting plan. This will permit you to use the Memcached system for a lot of sites, regardless of how heavy they are, which in turn means that you can use a lower-end plan for them without overloading your virtual server. The caching system is ideal for script-powered web apps such as OpenCart, WordPress, Joomla or Mambo, and you can use it even with a custom-created app. Shortly after you activate the Memcached system, it will begin caching content and you’ll spot the improved overall performance of your websites.
Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting
If you get one of our dedicated servers hosting packages and if you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel during the signup process, you’ll get the Memcached memory caching platform by default and you can use it with any site that you host on your dedicated machine without installing or upgrading anything. It will begin caching content as people visit your website, so you’ll see the results of using it shortly after that. The minimum amount of system memory that will be available to the Memcached platform is 3 gigabytes and normally, the more powerful the dedicate server package, the more memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will allow you to take advantage of the platform for many websites or for an extremely busy website without weakening its effectiveness. The Memcached platform will permit you to improve the load speed of any database-driven website in no time – a Joomla portal, a WordPress personal journal, an OpenCart e-store, etcetera, and to boost the performance of your server.
