Memcached is a distributed memory caching platform, which has been gaining in popularity lately owing to its efficiency. It is used to cache calls and responses between a database and the application that uses it, which can boost the overall performance of your Internet site and lessen the generated load significantly. Every time a web page on an app-driven Internet site is visited, the app connects to the database and "asks" what info should be displayed, and then drags it. With Memcached, these procedures are skipped, since the platform has already cached all the content that should be displayed on a specific web page. When any data is updated, the Memcached content is updated as well, so the site visitors will never see out-of-date data. The Memcached platform is a perfect option for every site that draws a lot of visitors, as it will make it faster than the speed of light and will improve the user experience.
Memcached in Cloud Website Hosting
You can make use of the Memcached distributed memory object caching system with all cloud website hosting plans
offered by our company. It’s available as an upgrade, which you can get with just a few clicks of the mouse from your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. It needs a PHP extension, which is already installed on our cloud web hosting platform, so you can start using the Memcached caching system once you order it. The upgrade is divided into two parts, which will give you more versatility depending on the websites that you would like to use it for. The first part determines the number of the websites that will use the Memcached caching system, or the ‘instances’, whereas the second one is related to the system memory, i.e. to how much content the system will be able to cache. You can add more system memory in increments of 16 MB and the more memory you have, the more content will be cached, which may be a pretty good idea for high-demand sites with very large databases and a lot of visitors. Thus, you can enhance the speed of any script-driven Internet site hosted on our servers without efforts.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can add the Memcached object caching platform to any of the semi-dedicated plans
that we’re offering and use its full potential for any script-driven Internet site hosted by us. The upgrade is available through the Hepsia Control Panel and you can select two things – the instances and the amount of memory. These things show the number of the sites that can use Memcached and how much memory it will use to store your content. You can select them separately, since a given instance is not bound to a specific amount of memory, so you can use a lot of memory for one resource-consuming website, for example. This upgrade is offered in increments of 16 MB and you can order as much memory as you need. The platform can be used with any script-powered site irrespective of its nature, including those that are based on popular web-based apps like Joomla™
, WordPress or Drupal™
, and plenty of companies like Zynga and Wikipedia are already using it to enhance the loading speed of their websites.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers
You can use the full potential of Memcached with each dedicated server
offered by our company if you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel. A special Control Panel section is dedicated to the distributed memory caching system and you can start using Memcached for any website hosted on the dedicated server with only several clicks. You can optimize the performance of any Internet site, no matter what script-driven software application you’re using or how popular the site is, as the minimum amount of system memory that Memcached will be able to use is three gigabytes and this amount increases tremendously with the more powerful dedicated servers. Shortly after the caching system is enabled, it will begin caching information each time someone accesses your website, so, once enough information has been stored, you’ll perceive the decreased load on your dedicated server and the optimized overall performance of your site. Memcached is being used by lots of sites, including famous portals like Wikipedia, Reddit and Zynga, which is a proof of the efficiency of the Memcached caching system.
