Memcached is a distributed memory caching platform, which has been gaining in popularity lately thanks to its effectiveness. It’s used to cache requests and replies between a database and the app that uses it, which can boost the overall performance of your site and reduce the created load immensely. Anytime a page on an app-driven website is accessed, the app connects to the database and "asks" what info should be displayed, and then fetches it. With Memcached, these procedures are omitted, as the platform has already cached all of the content that should show up on a given webpage. When any content is modified, the Memcached content is updated as well, so the users will never end up seeing old data. The Memcached platform is an ideal solution for every website that lures many viewers, since it will make it extremely fast and will improve the overall user experience.
Memcached in Cloud Hosting
Memcached is available as an optional upgrade with each and every cloud hosting plan that we are offering and in case you’d like to use it for any script-based Internet site that you host on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform, you will be able to activate it in several simple steps via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. In the meantime, you will be given the option to upgrade two different things – the instances and the system memory. The first one is related to the number of the websites that can use the Memcached data caching system at the same time, so if you need it for several Internet sites, you can order a number of instances. The second one refers to the maximum amount of memory that Memcached will be allowed to use in order to cache info, so for numerous sites (or for one resource-consuming site), you should get more memory for improved performance. The memory comes in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be added at any time. With Memcached, each script-based Internet site hosted on our servers will open faster than the speed of light.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can add the Memcached memory caching platform to any of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages offered by our company and use its full capacity for any script-driven website hosted on our servers. The upgrade is accessible through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can choose two features – the number of instances and the amount of memory. These things specify the number of the websites that can use the Memcached caching platform and the amount of system memory that it will use to cache your data. You can choose them independently, since one instance is not linked to a fixed amount of system memory, so you can use a lot of memory for one traffic-heavy site, for instance. This feature is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order as much memory as you need. The Memcached platform can be used with any script-powered site regardless of its type, including those that are based on widely used Internet apps like WordPress, Drupal or Joomla, and a lot of companies like Zynga and Wikipedia are already using it to accelerate the speed of their sites.
Memcached in VPS Hosting
You will get Memcached with any of the virtual private server plans that we offer if you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to activate the caching platform through the section with the very same name. The activation takes a couple of clicks of the mouse and you will see the difference in the performance of your sites almost instantaneously. The amount of system memory that the Memcached caching platform can employ to cache data depends on the given VPS package that you have chosen, but at any rate it will not be less than several hundred MB, which is more than enough even for multiple resource-requiring Internet sites. You can use the Memcached platform with websites based on WordPress, Joomla or any other Internet application and decrease the load on your Virtual Private Server, which will permit you to continue using the current VPS plan rather than switching to a more powerful one, as you will simply not need it. Memcached is already being used by popular websites like Reddit, Wikipedia and Zynga, which confirms its effectiveness.
Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting
When you purchase one of our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages and if you choose Hepsia as your website hosting Control Panel at signup, you will get the Memcached platform by default and you can use it with each website that you host on your dedicated server without upgrading or installing anything. It will start storing data as users visit your website, so you’ll see the effects of using it soon after that. The minimum amount of system memory that will be available to the caching platform is 3 GB and naturally, the more powerful the dedicate server package, the more system memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will allow you to use the caching platform for multiple websites or for an extremely large site without compromising its efficiency. The Memcached caching platform will enable you to increase the loading speed of any database-driven site in no time – a Joomla portal, a WordPress personal weblog, an OpenCart web store, etc., and to optimize the overall performance of your server.
