Memcached is a memory caching platform, which has been gaining popularity lately thanks to its effectiveness. It’s used to cache requests and responses between a database and the app that’s using it, which can improve the overall performance of your site and reduce the created load substantially. Anytime a webpage on an app-powered site is visited, the app connects to the database and "asks" what information should be displayed, and then pulls it. With Memcached, these procedures are skipped, since the platform has already cached all of the content that should be shown on a given page. In case any data is modified, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the visitors will never end up seeing old data. The platform is an ideal choice for any Internet site that entices a lot of visitors, as it will accelerate it and will enhance the user experience.
Memcached in Shared Hosting
Memcached is offered as an upgrade with each shared hosting
plan offered by our company and in case you would like to use it for any script-powered site that you host on our innovative cloud website hosting platform, you will be able to activate it in a few easy steps through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. During the process, you’ll be given the option to upgrade two separate features – the instances and the memory. The first one is related to the number of the websites that can use the Memcached distributed memory caching system simultaneously, so if you need it for several websites, you can order a handful of instances. The second one refers to the total amount of memory that Memcached will be permitted to use to cache information, so for plenty of sites (or for one single traffic-consuming site), you should order more memory for improved performance. The memory is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be ordered at any point. With the Memcached caching system, each script-based website hosted on our cloud servers will open lightning-fast.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you choose to host your sites in a semi-dedicated server
account, you can take advantage of Memcached effortlessly, as the distributed memory caching platform’s setup requires a couple of clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia Control Panel. The required PHP extension is pre-installed on our servers, so you can begin using the Memcached caching platform the moment you add it to your account. You will be able to choose how many Internet sites can use it and how much information can be cached, i.e. there are two different upgradable features – the number of instances and the amount of memory. You can order more of both, so if one of your Internet sites becomes extremely busy, for example, you can always get more memory. Our system is quite flexible in this regard and we don’t bind a given number of instances to a pre-defined amount of memory. You can use the Memcached platform to speed up any script-powered Internet site, including those that are based on famous web applications, such as WordPress or Joomla™
Memcached in VPS
If you buy a virtual private server
from our company, you will be able to use Memcached at no additional charge, as the caching platform is offered with all VPS servers ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. Even if you manage popular Internet sites, you can increase their overall performance with ease and the lowered load on your VPS server will allow you to keep using your current plan instead of switching to a more powerful one. The amount of memory that the Memcached platform can use to cache data depends on the plan that you’re using, but even with a low-end one, you will get no less than several hundred megabytes, which is considerably more than what you’d get with a shared plan, so the website performance boost will be enormous. You can take advantage of Memcached with any database-powered web app, regardless of whether you have built it on your own or you are using a ready-made one such as OpenCart, WordPress or Joomla™
Memcached in Dedicated Hosting
When you acquire one of our Linux dedicated hosting
and if you choose Hepsia as your web hosting Control Panel at signup, you will get the Memcached object caching platform by default and you can activate it for any Internet site that you host on your server without upgrading or installing anything. It will start caching info as users open your Internet site, so you’ll see the results of using it soon thereafter. The minimum amount of system memory that will be available to the Memcached platform is 3 GB and normally, the more powerful the plan, the more memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will permit you to use the caching platform for plenty of sites or for a very large website without compromising its effectiveness. Memcached will permit you to increase the loading speed of any database-driven Internet site very quickly – a Joomla™
portal, a WordPress personal diary, an OpenCart store, etcetera, and to optimize the performance of your server.
