Memcached is a content caching system, which has been gaining in popularity lately owing to its efficiency. It’s used to cache calls and responses between a database and the app that uses it, which can enhance the overall performance of your website and lessen the created server load tremendously. Anytime a page on an application-driven website is accessed, the application connects to the database and "asks" what info should be displayed, and then drags it. With Memcached, these steps are omitted, as the platform has already cached the content that should be shown on a specific webpage. If any data is modified, the Memcached content is updated as well, so the site visitors will never end up seeing outdated data. Memcached is a perfect solution for any site that entices plenty of viewers, since it will boost its loading speed and will improve the overall user experience.
Memcached in Cloud Hosting
Memcached is available as an upgrade with every Linux cloud hosting that we are offering and you can begin using it the moment you order it, since the extension that it requires so as to function correctly is already available on our innovative cloud website hosting platform. You can request the upgrade from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with each web hosting plan and a brand-new section where you can administer Memcached will show up. The upgrade is separated into two parts – the instances and the memory, so as to offer you more freedom. The first one shows the number of the Internet sites that can use the Memcached caching system, while the second one, which comes in increments of 16 megabytes, indicates the total size of the content that the system can cache. A frequently visited site with a large-sized database may require more memory so as to take an even bigger advantage of the Memcached caching system, so if you would like to upgrade this service, you will be able to do it at any point with a few clicks of the mouse.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you choose to host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to take advantage of Memcached with ease, since the platform’s setup takes a few clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. The PHP extension that it requires is pre-installed on our semi-dedicated servers, so you can begin using the Memcached caching platform as soon as you add it to your semi-dedicated server account. You’ll be able to select how many websites can use it and how much content it will cache, in other words – there are two separate features that can be upgraded – the instances and the amount of memory. You can get more of both, so if one of your Internet sites becomes very popular, for example, you can always add more memory to it. Our system is really flexible in this regard and we don’t bind a specific number of instances to a fixed amount of system memory. You can use the Memcached caching platform to increase the speed of any script-driven Internet site, including those based on popular software apps, such as Joomla or WordPress.
Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting
You can unlock the full potential of Memcached with each dedicated server that we are offering if you select Hepsia as your Control Panel. A special section in it is dedicated to the object caching system and you can begin using Memcached for any Internet site hosted on the dedicated machine with only several clicks of the mouse. You can optimize the performance of any Internet site, no matter what script-based web application you’re using or how busy the website is, as the minimum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to employ is three gigabytes and this amount grows immensely with the more powerful servers. Shortly after the system is enabled, it will start caching data every time somebody accesses your site, so, as soon as sufficient data has been stored, you’ll detect the lowered load on your dedicated machine and the optimized overall performance of the website. The Memcached system is being used by plenty of sites, among them popular portals such as Zynga, Wikipedia and Reddit, which is a confirmation of the efficiency of the Memcached caching system.
