Memcached is a data caching system, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years thanks to its effectiveness. It’s used to cache calls and replies between a database and the app that uses it, which can accelerate the overall performance of your site and decrease the created load drastically. Anytime a page on an app-driven website is accessed, the app connects to the database and "asks" what information should be shown, and then fetches it. With Memcached, these procedures are omitted, as the platform has already cached the content that should show up on a given web page. In case any content is modified, the Memcached content is updated as well, so the visitors will never end up seeing outdated data. The Memcached platform is a perfect choice for every website that attracts numerous viewers, since it will make it extra-fast and will improve the user experience.
Memcached in Hosting
When you host script-driven sites in a hosting account with us, you can add the Memcached object caching system to your shared web hosting plan with only a few clicks of the mouse from your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available immediately and, since the extension required for it is already installed on our advanced cloud hosting platform, you can begin using it right away. To give you more versatility, we offer two separate upgrades related to the number of instances (i.e. how many websites will use Memcached) and to the amount of system memory that Memcached will use. The latter is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order as much memory as you like. Logically, the more memory Memcached is allowed to use, the more data it will cache, so in case you have a larger site with lots of data, you may require more memory in order to be able to make the most of the power that Memcached can offer you.
Memcached in VPS Servers
Memcached is available as standard with all VPS servers that are ordered with our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel. The PHP extension it needs in order to function properly is compiled when the virtual server is configured, so you can begin using the caching platform as soon as your brand-new VPS server is completely functional. The system memory that Memcached can employ depends on the particular plan, but even with the low-end plans, you will get several hundred megabytes that will be at your disposal exclusively for this platform. This will permit you to enhance the performance of numerous sites hosted on the VPS server at the same time and to lower the load on the virtual machine even if you run traffic-intensive script-powered sites with numerous users. The caching platform can be used with any script – Joomla, Drupal or Mambo, or a custom-built script, and you will detect the faster performance shortly after you start using it.
