Memcached is a memory caching platform, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years thanks to its efficiency. It’s used to cache calls and replies between a database and the application that uses it, which can improve the overall performance of your website and reduce the produced load substantially. Anytime a page on an application-powered site is visited, the app connects to the database and "asks" what info should be displayed, and then extracts it. With Memcached, these steps are omitted, as the platform has already cached all the content that should be shown on a particular webpage. When any data is modified, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ too, so the site visitors will never end up seeing out-of-date content. The platform is a perfect choice for every site that lures lots of viewers, as it will make it load faster and will improve the overall user experience.
Memcached in Shared Hosting
Memcached is offered as an upgrade with each and every shared hosting offered by our company and you’ll be able to begin using it once you add it, as the extension that it needs in order to function properly is already installed on our cutting-edge cloud platform. You can order the upgrade through the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with each and every plan and a brand-new Control Panel section where you can administer Memcached will appear. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts – the number of instances and the amount of system memory, so as to offer you more freedom. The first one shows the number of the sites that can use Memcached, whereas the second, which comes in increments of 16 MB, indicates the total size of the content that can be cached by the system. A traffic-heavy Internet site with a large-sized database may need more memory so as to take an even bigger advantage of the Memcached caching system, so if you want to upgrade this service, you will be able to do it at any point with a couple of mouse clicks.
Memcached in VPS Servers
You will get Memcached with any of the VPS server packages offered by our company if you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel and you’ll be able to activate the caching platform through the section with the very same name. The configuration takes a few clicks of the mouse and you’ll detect the difference in the overall performance of your sites almost instantly. The amount of system memory that the Memcached caching platform can take advantage of to cache information depends on the particular Virtual Private Server hosting plan that you have chosen, but at any rate it will be at least several hundred megabytes, which is more than enough even for multiple high-demand websites. You can use Memcached with Internet sites based on WordPress, Joomla or any other web application and reduce the load on your Virtual Private Server, which will allow you to continue using the current VPS plan rather than switching to a more powerful one, as you will simply not need it. Memcached is already being used by popular websites like Zynga, Wikipedia and Reddit, which verifies its effectiveness.
