Memcached is an object caching platform, which has been gaining in popularity lately due to its effectiveness. It’s used to cache requests and replies between a database and the application that uses it, which can accelerate the performance of your site and reduce the created load tremendously. Anytime a page on an application-driven site is visited, the application 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 the content that should be shown on a specific web page. When any data is edited, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ too, so the site visitors will never end up seeing old data. The Memcached platform is a perfect solution for every Internet site that draws numerous visitors, since it will make it ultra-fast and will enhance the overall user experience.
Memcached in Shared Website Hosting
When you host script-driven sites in a shared website hosting account with our company, you will be able to add the Memcached memory caching system to your shared web hosting plan with only a couple of clicks of the mouse through your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantly and, since the extension needed for it is already installed on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform, you can start using it straight away. To give you more flexibility, we offer two different upgrades related to the number of instances (i.e. how many websites will use Memcached) and to the system memory that Memcached will use. The latter is offered in increments of 16 MB and you can add memory as many times as you wish. Logically, the more memory Memcached is allowed to use, the more content it will cache, so in case you’ve got a resource-absorbing site with a lot of content, you may need more memory so as to be able to make the most of the power that Memcached can offer you.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can add the Memcached caching platform to any of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages offered by us and use its full potential for any script-driven site hosted by us. The upgrade is offered through the Hepsia Control Panel and you can select two features – the number of instances and the amount of memory. These things specify the number of the websites that can use the Memcached platform and how much system memory it will use to cache your content. You can select them independently, since one instance is not bound to a specific amount of memory, so you can use plenty of memory for one popular Internet site, for instance. This upgrade is offered in increments of 16 MB and you can order as much memory as you want. The Memcached platform can be used with any script-powered site irrespective of its nature, including those that are based on popular applications like Drupal, Joomla or WordPress, and many companies such as Wikipedia and Zynga are already using it to accelerate the overall performance of their websites.
Memcached in Dedicated Hosting
Memcached is available free of charge with all Linux dedicated servers hosting packages offered by us and the one and only condition is that the dedicated server must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. You can use the distributed memory caching system for any database-driven website, including those based on widely used apps – for example, a WordPress online diary or a Joomla-driven social networking site. Each dedicated server is tied to a particular amount of system memory that Memcached can employ, but the minimum amount you will get is 3 GB, which is sufficient enough to increase the load speed of extremely popular websites seriously, since this very memory will be dedicated to storing the cached content. The Memcached system will begin caching content as soon as it’s enabled, so soon after that, you will detect the enhanced overall performance of your websites and the reduced load on the dedicated machine. Lots of Internet sites use Memcached to boost their effectiveness, including famous ones like Wikipedia and Reddit.
