Memcached is a content caching platform, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years due to its effectiveness. It’s used to cache requests and responses between a database and the application that uses it, which can enhance the overall performance of your Internet site and reduce the produced server load immensely. Every time a page on an app-powered website is visited, the app connects to the database and "asks" what info should be shown, and then fetches it. With Memcached, these steps are skipped, as the platform has already cached all the content that should be shown on a specific web page. When any data is updated, the Memcached content is updated too, so the website visitors will never see old content. The platform is an ideal solution for any site that attracts lots of viewers, since it will make it really fast and will enhance the user experience.
Memcached in Hosting
Memcached is offered as an optional upgrade with each hosting package offered by our company and in case you wish to use it for any script-based Internet site that you host on our avant-garde cloud web hosting platform, you’ll be able to add it in several simple steps via your Hepsia Control Panel. In the meantime, you will be offered the option to upgrade two different things – the number of instances and the memory. The first one has to do with the number of the sites that can use the Memcached data caching system at the same time, so if you need it for several websites, you can get a number of instances. The second one has to do with the total amount of memory that the system will be allowed to use to cache data, so for multiple sites (or for one single resource-demanding site), you may want to order more memory for improved performance. The memory comes in increments of 16 MB and more memory can be ordered at any point. With the Memcached caching system, any script-driven Internet site hosted on our servers will load much faster.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you decide to host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account, you can take advantage of Memcached with ease, as the platform’s setup takes a couple of mouse clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The PHP extension that it requires is already installed on our semi-dedicated servers, so you can begin using Memcached the moment you add it to your account. You’ll be able to choose how many sites can use it and how much data can be cached, i.e. there’re two separate features that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the memory. You can add more of both, so if one of your Internet sites becomes very popular, for instance, you can always order more memory. Our system is rather flexible in this regard and we don’t bind a specific number of instances to a pre-defined amount of system memory. You can take advantage of the Memcached platform to speed up any script-driven website, including those that are based on widely used software applications, such as Joomla or WordPress.
Memcached in VPS Web Hosting
You will get Memcached with each of the virtual private server plans offered by our company when you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel and you will be able to activate the distributed memory object caching platform through the section with the exact same name. The activation requires several clicks and you’ll notice the difference in the overall performance of your Internet sites almost momentarily. The amount of system memory that the Memcached caching platform can use to store data depends on the particular VPS package that you’ve picked, but at any rate it will be at least several hundred megabytes, which is more than enough even for multiple large-scale Internet sites. You can use Memcached with sites driven by WordPress, Joomla or any other Internet application and decrease the load on your virtual server, which will permit you to continue using the current Virtual Private Server package rather than moving to a more powerful one, as you simply won’t need it. The Memcached platform is already being used by famous websites like Reddit, Wikipedia and Zynga, which verifies its efficacy.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting
Memcached is available free of charge with all Linux dedicated servers hosting packages that we’re offering and the sole requirement is that the dedicated server must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can use the object caching system for any database-powered website, including those based on popular Internet apps – for instance, a WordPress online blog or a Joomla-powered community site. Each dedicated machine is tied to a different amount of system memory that the Memcached system can use, but the minimum amount you will get is three gigabytes, which is sufficient enough to accelerate the speed of extremely busy sites tremendously, as this very memory will be dedicated to storing the cached data. The Memcached system will begin storing info as soon as it’s activated, so soon after that, you will note the optimized overall performance of your Internet sites and the decreased load on the dedicated server. Numerous Internet sites use the Memcached caching system to enhance their efficiency, including popular ones like Reddit and Wikipedia.
