Memcached is a content caching platform, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years thanks to its effectiveness. It is used to cache queries and responses between a database and the application that’s using it, which can increase the performance of your website and reduce the generated server load tremendously. Every time a page on an application-powered website is visited, the app connects to the database and "asks" what information should be shown, and then pulls it. With Memcached, these procedures are omitted, since the platform has already cached all the content that should show up on a particular web page. If any data is modified, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the users will never end up seeing outdated data. The platform is a perfect solution for every website that has lots of visitors, as it will make it truly fast and will enhance the overall user experience.
Memcached in Website Hosting
The Memcached object caching system is offered as an optional upgrade with every Linux website hosting package offered by our company and you will be able to begin using it once you enable it, since the PHP extension that it needs so as to run correctly is already available on our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform. You can order the upgrade via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with each and every web hosting plan and a brand-new section where you can manage Memcached will appear. The upgrade is divided into two parts – the number of instances and the amount of memory, so as to offer you more versatility. The first one refers to the number of the websites which can use Memcached, while the second, which comes in increments of 16 megabytes, determines the total size of the content that can be cached by the system. A busy site with a large database may need more memory in order to take an even bigger advantage of Memcached, so if you would like to upgrade this feature, you will be able to do it at any point with a couple of clicks of the mouse.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you obtain any of our semi-dedicated server packages, you will find Memcached as an optional feature in the Upgrades part of your Hepsia Control Panel, so if you wish to use it for any of the Internet sites hosted in your account, you can enable it with only a couple of mouse clicks. The memory caching platform is ideal for any script-driven software application like WordPress, Joomla, or even a custom-made one, and based on your needs, you’ll be able to choose two separate features – how many websites will use Memcached, i.e. the number of instances; and how much data will be stored, i.e. the amount of system memory that the platform will employ. The two things are not bound to each other, so if you manage a frequently visited site with lots of content, you can order one instance and a large amount of memory. The Memcached platform will increase the performance of your websites soon after you enable it and both you and your website visitors will enjoy faster load times.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting
You can unlock the full potential of Memcached with each and every dedicated server that we’re offering in case you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. A section in it is dedicated to the data caching system and you can begin using Memcached for any Internet site hosted on the dedicated server with just a couple of clicks. You can optimize the overall performance of any website, no matter what script-based web application you are using or how heavy the Internet site is, since the minimum amount of system memory that Memcached will be able to employ is three gigabytes and this amount increases immensely with the more powerful servers. Shortly after the caching system is enabled, it will begin caching content anytime somebody opens your site, so, once sufficient content has been cached, you will see the reduced load on the server and the optimized performance of your website. The Memcached system is being used by many sites, including famous portals such as Zynga, Reddit and Wikipedia, which shows the effectiveness of the Memcached system.
