Memcached is a content caching system, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years thanks to its effectiveness. It’s used to cache calls and replies between a database and the application that’s using it, which can improve the overall performance of your site and lessen the produced load tremendously. Every time a webpage on an app-powered site is accessed, the application connects to the database and "asks" what information should be shown, and then pulls it. With Memcached, these procedures are skipped, as the platform has already cached all of the content that should appear on a specific webpage. In case any data is modified, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the site visitors will never end up seeing out-of-date content. The Memcached platform is a perfect solution for any site that lures lots of viewers, since it will make it open much faster and will enhance the user experience.
Memcached in Shared Website Hosting
When you host script-powered sites in a shared website hosting account with our company, you will be able to add the Memcached object caching system to your web hosting package with just a few mouse clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available momentarily and, since the necessary extension is pre-installed on our advanced cloud platform, you can start using it straight away. To give you more flexibility, we offer two separate upgrades related to the number of instances (in other words – how many Internet sites will use Memcached) and to the amount of system memory that the Memcached caching system will use. The latter comes in increments of 16 MB and you can add memory whenever you wish. Logically, the more memory the Memcached caching system is permitted to use, the more data it will cache, so if you run a high-demand website with lots of data, you may need more memory to be able to make the most of the power that Memcached can give you.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can add the Memcached caching platform to any of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting offered by our company and make use of its full potential for any script-driven Internet site hosted on our servers. The upgrade is offered through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can choose two features – the number of instances and the memory. These things define 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 content. You can select them independently, since one instance is not tied to a specific amount of memory, so you can use plenty of memory for a single frequently visited site, for example. This feature is available in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order as much memory as you wish. The platform can be used with any script-powered website irrespective of its nature, including those based on widespread web-based apps like WordPress, Joomla or Drupal, and plenty of companies like Wikipedia and Zynga are already using it to enhance the performance of their websites.
Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting
If you purchase one of our Linux dedicated web hosting and if you choose Hepsia as your website hosting Control Panel during the order process, you’ll get Memcached by default and you can enable it for each website that you host on the dedicated server without upgrading or installing anything. It will begin caching information as people visit your website, so you’ll see the effects of using it shortly after that. The minimum amount of memory that will be available to the platform is 3 gigabytes and naturally, the more powerful the dedicate server plan, the more system memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will enable you to take advantage of the caching platform for plenty of Internet sites or for an extremely large website without weakening its efficiency. The Memcached platform will permit you to accelerate any database-driven site very quickly – a Joomla portal, a WordPress online journal, an OpenCart web store, etc., and to boost the performance of your dedicated machine.
