Memcached is an object caching platform, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years owing to its efficiency. It’s used to cache requests and responses between a database and the application that is using it, which can increase the overall performance of your site and decrease the created server load immensely. Every time a web page on an app-driven website is accessed, the application connects to the database and "asks" what info should be displayed, and then drags it. With Memcached, these steps are omitted, since the platform has already cached the content that should be shown on a certain web page. When any content is edited, the Memcached content is updated as well, so the site visitors will never see old data. The platform is an excellent choice for every Internet site that has lots of visitors, as it will make it load much faster and will improve the user experience.
Memcached in Shared Website Hosting
If you host script-based sites in a shared website hosting account with our company, you’ll be able to add the Memcached distributed memory object caching system to your web hosting package with only a couple of clicks of the mouse via your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantaneously and, since the extension required for it is pre-installed on our advanced cloud website hosting platform, you can start using it straight away. To give you more versatility, we offer two separate upgrades related to the number of instances (i.e. how many Internet sites will use Memcached) and to the system memory that Memcached will use. The latter is available in increments of 16 megabytes and you can add as much memory as you like. Logically, the more memory the Memcached caching system is allowed to use, the more data it will cache, so if you have a large-scale website with lots of data, you may require more memory to be able to take full advantage of the power that Memcached can give you.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you buy one of our semi-dedicated server packages, you will find Memcached as an optional feature in the Upgrades section of your Hepsia Control Panel, so if you’d like to use it for any of the Internet sites hosted in the semi-dedicated account, you can activate it with just a couple of clicks. The object caching platform is suitable for any script-powered web app like Joomla, WordPress, or even a custom-built application, and based on your needs, you’ll be able to choose two separate features – how many sites will use the Memcached platform, in other words – the number of instances; and how much information will be cached, in other words – the amount of system memory that the platform will use. The two features are not bound to each other, so if you’ve got a frequently visited Internet site with lots of data, you can get one instance and a large amount of system memory. The Memcached caching platform will optimize the performance of your Internet sites soon after you enable it and both you and your website visitors will enjoy better load speeds.
Memcached in VPS Servers
You will get Memcached with any of the VPS server packages that we offer if you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to activate the distributed memory object caching platform through the Control Panel section with the exact same name. The setup takes a couple of clicks and you will see the difference in the performance of your Internet sites almost instantly. The amount of memory that Memcached can use to store data depends on the given VPS package that you’ve selected, but in any case it will not be less than several hundred megabytes, which is more than enough even for multiple popular websites. You can use Memcached with Internet sites powered by WordPress, Joomla or any other app and reduce the load on your VPS, which will permit you to keep using the current Virtual Private Server package rather than migrating to a more powerful one, as you will simply not need it. The Memcached platform is already being used by popular websites like Wikipedia, Reddit and Zynga, which confirms its effectiveness.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers
Memcached comes for free with all Linux dedicated web hosting plans offered by us and the sole requirement is that the dedicated server must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can use the caching system for any database-driven website, including those that are based on famous Internet applications – for example, a WordPress personal blog or a Joomla-powered community website. Each server is tied to a particular 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 speed of extremely heavy sites enormously, since this very memory will be dedicated to storing the cached content. The system will begin storing info the moment it is enabled, so shortly after that, you’ll see the optimized overall performance of your websites and the reduced load. Lots of Internet sites use the Memcached caching system to boost their effectiveness, among them famous ones such as Wikipedia and Reddit.
