Memcached is an object caching platform, which has been gaining in popularity lately owing to its effectiveness. It’s used to cache calls and responses between a database and the app that’s using it, which can accelerate the overall performance of your website and lessen the created server load considerably. Every time a webpage on an application-driven website is opened, the application connects to the database and "asks" what info should be displayed, and then fetches it. With Memcached, these procedures are skipped, since the platform has already cached all of the content that should show up on a certain page. When any data is updated, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ too, so the website visitors will never see old data. Memcached is a perfect option for any site that draws numerous visitors, as it will boost its loading speed and will improve the user experience.
Memcached in Shared Web Hosting
If you host script-powered websites in a shared web hosting account with our company, you’ll be able to add the Memcached object caching system to your web hosting package with only a few clicks of the mouse through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available momentarily and, since the required PHP extension is already installed on our advanced cloud platform, you can begin 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 sites will use Memcached) and to the amount of memory that the Memcached caching system will use. The latter is available in increments of 16 megabytes and you can add memory whenever you wish. Naturally, the more memory Memcached is permitted to use, the more content it will cache, so if you manage a high-traffic site with lots of data, you may require more memory in order to be able to make full use of the power that Memcached can give you.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you choose to host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to take advantage of Memcached with ease, since the data caching platform’s setup takes a few clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. The extension that it requires is already installed on our servers, so you can begin using the Memcached platform the moment you add it to your semi-dedicated server account. You’ll be able to choose how many Internet sites can use it and how much data can be cached, i.e. there’re two separate features that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the amount of system memory. You can order more of both, so if one of your sites becomes very busy, for instance, you can always order more memory. Our system is truly flexible in this regard and we do not tie a specific number of instances to a pre-defined amount of memory. You can take advantage of the Memcached caching platform to boost the speed of any script-powered site, including those that are based on popular Internet applications, such as Joomla or WordPress.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting
Memcached comes free of charge with all Linux dedicated servers hosting that we’re offering and the one and only condition is that the dedicated server must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. You can use the caching system for any database-driven site, including those based on famous web-based applications – for example, a WordPress personal diary or a Joomla-powered social network. Each dedicated machine is tied to a certain amount of system memory that Memcached can employ, but the minimum you’ll get is 3 GB, which is sufficient enough to boost the load speed of very heavy websites greatly, as this very memory will be dedicated to storing the cached content. The Memcached system will start storing info as soon as it’s enabled, so soon after that, you will see the optimized overall performance of your Internet sites and the reduced load on your dedicated machine. A lot of websites use Memcached to enhance their effectiveness, including popular ones like Wikipedia and Reddit.
