Memcached is an object caching system, which has been gaining popularity lately owing to its effectiveness. It’s used to cache requests and responses between a database and the application that’s using it, which can enhance the overall performance of your site and decrease the produced server load significantly. Anytime a web page on an app-powered site is accessed, the application connects to the database and "asks" what info should be shown, and then fetches it. With Memcached, these steps are skipped, since the platform has already cached the content that should be displayed on a particular web page. When any data is edited, the Memcached content is updated too, so the website visitors will never end up seeing outdated data. The Memcached platform is an ideal solution for every site that draws numerous viewers, since it will boost its speed and will improve the overall user experience.
Memcached in Shared Website Hosting
When you host script-based sites in a shared website hosting account with us, you will be able to add the Memcached data caching system to your hosting plan with only a couple of clicks via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantly and, since the needed PHP extension is already installed on our innovative cloud hosting 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 memory that Memcached will use. The latter comes in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order as much memory as you want. Logically, the more memory the Memcached caching system is permitted to use, the more data it will cache, so in case you have a larger site with a lot of content, you may need more memory in order to be able to make the most of the power that Memcached can offer you.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you choose to host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to take advantage of Memcached effortlessly, since the distributed memory caching platform’s activation requires a few clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The required PHP extension is pre-installed on our servers, so you can start using Memcached the moment you add it to your semi-dedicated server account. You’ll be able to choose how many websites can use it and how much information it will cache, in other words – there are two different features that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the amount of system memory. You can add more of both, so if one of your sites becomes very busy, for example, you can always get more memory. Our system is really flexible in this regard and we do not bind a given number of instances to a pre-defined amount of system memory. You can use the Memcached platform to improve the loading speed of any script-driven site, including those that are based on famous Internet applications, such as Joomla or WordPress.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers
Memcached is available free of charge with all dedicated web hosting plans that we’re offering and the sole requirement is that the dedicated machine must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. You can use the object caching system for any database-driven website, including those based on famous software apps – for example, a WordPress personal diary or a Joomla-powered social networking website. Each dedicated server comes with a given amount of memory that the Memcached caching system can use, but the minimum amount you will get is 3 gigabytes, which is quite enough to increase the loading speed of extremely popular sites enormously, since this very memory will be dedicated to storing the cached info. The Memcached system will begin storing content once it’s enabled, so shortly thereafter, you will see the improved overall performance of your websites and the lowered load on the dedicated machine. A lot of sites use the Memcached system to increase their effectiveness, including popular ones such as Reddit and Wikipedia.
