Memcached is a caching platform, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years due to its effectiveness. It is used to cache queries and responses between a database and the app that’s using it, which can boost the performance of your Internet site and reduce the generated load immensely. Every time a page on an application-powered site is accessed, the application connects to the database and "asks" what information should be shown, and then extracts it. With Memcached, these steps are skipped, since the platform has already cached the content that should appear on a particular web page. If any content is updated, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the site visitors will never end up seeing old content. The Memcached platform is an ideal solution for any site that has plenty of visitors, since it will make it blazing-fast and will improve the overall user experience.
Memcached in Shared Website Hosting
The Memcached memory caching system is offered as an optional upgrade with each and every Linux shared website hosting package
offered by our company and you can begin using it as soon as you order it, since the extension that it needs in order to work properly is already present on our avant-garde cloud platform. You can request the upgrade from the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes bundled with each and every shared web hosting package and a brand-new Control Panel section where you can administer Memcached will appear. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts – the number of instances and the system memory, so as to offer you more flexibility. The first one shows the number of the Internet sites that can use Memcached, while the second, which comes in increments of 16 MB, specifies the total size of the content that can be cached by the system. A heavy-traffic Internet site with a large-size database may need more memory to take an even bigger advantage of Memcached, so in case you’d like to upgrade this feature, you’ll be able to do it at any time with a few mouse clicks.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can add the Memcached distributed memory caching platform to any of the Linux semi-dedicated packages
that we’re offering and make use of its full potential for any script-driven website hosted on our servers. The upgrade is offered through the Hepsia Control Panel and you can choose two features – the instances and the amount of memory. These things specify the number of the sites that can use Memcached and how much system memory it will use to cache your info. You can select them separately, since one instance is not bound to a particular amount of system memory, so you can use plenty of memory for a single busy website, for example. This feature is available in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order as much memory as you wish. The Memcached platform can be used with any script-powered site regardless of its type, including those based on widespread web applications like WordPress, Drupal™
, and a lot of companies such as Wikipedia and Zynga are already using it to accelerate the loading speed of their sites.
Memcached in VPS Web Hosting
Memcached is available as standard with all Linux VPS web hosting packages
that are ordered with our custom Hepsia Control Panel. The extension it needs so as to perform properly is compiled when the VPS is set up, so you can begin using the content caching platform as soon as your new server is fully ready. The memory that the Memcached platform can employ depends on the given Virtual Private Server plan, but even with the lower-end ones, you will get several hundred megabytes that will be at your disposal exclusively for this platform. This will allow you to accelerate the overall performance of multiple websites hosted on the virtual server at the same time and to decrease the load on the machine even if you run resource-heavy script-based web portals with numerous visitors. The platform can be used with any script – Joomla™
or Mambo, or a custom-developed script, and you’ll notice the faster performance soon after you begin using it.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting
You can unleash the full potential of Memcached with each dedicated server
offered by us in case you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel. A section in it is dedicated to the content caching system and you can start using Memcached for any website hosted on the machine with just several clicks. You can accelerate the performance of any site, no matter what script-powered application you’re using or how busy the Internet site is, since the minimum amount of system memory that Memcached will be able to employ is three gigabytes and this amount rises tremendously with the higher-end dedicated servers. Shortly after the system is enabled, it will begin caching info each time someone visits your site, so, once sufficient info has been cached, you’ll distinguish the decreased load on your dedicated server and the optimized overall performance of the Internet site. Memcached is used by a lot of websites, including popular portals such as Wikipedia, Reddit and Zynga, which demonstrates the effectiveness of the Memcached caching system.
