Memcached is a memory caching platform, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years because of its effectiveness. It’s used to cache requests and replies between a database and the application that is using it, which can increase the overall performance of your site and decrease the produced server load significantly. Every time a webpage on an application-powered Internet site is accessed, the application connects to the database and "asks" what info should be displayed, and then extracts it. With Memcached, these procedures are omitted, since the platform has already cached all of the content that should be displayed on a particular page. If any data is edited, the Memcached content is updated too, so the users will never see old content. Memcached is a perfect option for any site that lures a lot of viewers, since it will make it extremely fast and will improve the user experience.
Memcached in Cloud Hosting
Memcached comes as an optional upgrade with each and every cloud hosting account offered by our company and if you wish to use it for any script-powered website that you host on our innovative cloud web hosting platform, you will be able to add it in several easy steps via your Hepsia Control Panel. During the process, you will get the option to upgrade two separate features – the number of instances and the memory. The first one is related to the number of the websites that can use the Memcached memory caching system simultaneously, so if you need it for several Internet sites, you can get a handful of instances. The second one has to do with the maximum amount of memory that Memcached will be allowed to use in order to cache information, so for a lot of sites (or for one single resource-demanding site), you may want to get more memory for better results. The memory is available in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be added at any point. With the Memcached caching system, each script-driven Internet site hosted on our cloud servers will load much faster.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you buy one of our semi-dedicated server plans, you’ll find Memcached as an optional upgrade in the Upgrades part of your Hepsia Control Panel, so if you’d like to use it for any of the sites hosted in the semi-dedicated server hosting account, you can activate it with just a few mouse clicks. The platform is perfect for any script-based web app such as Joomla, WordPress, or even a custom-built app, and depending on your requirements, you will be able to choose two separate features – how many sites will use Memcached, in other words – the number of instances; and how much data will be stored, in other words – the amount of memory that the platform will use. The two things are not tied to each other, so if you have a frequently visited Internet site with lots of content, you can order one instance and a larger amount of memory. The Memcached caching platform will increase the overall performance of your sites soon after you enable it and both you and your website visitors will enjoy faster load speeds.
Memcached in VPS Servers
If you order a VPS server from us, you’ll be able to use Memcached at no extra fee, as the distributed memory caching platform comes with all virtual servers ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Even if you’ve got content-heavy sites, you’ll be able to increase their overall performance without efforts and the decreased load on your virtual machine will permit you to continue using your current VPS package instead of switching to a more powerful one. The amount of system memory that the Memcached platform can use to cache content depends on the package that you are using, but even with a low-end one, you will get at least several hundred MB, which is significantly more than the amount of memory you’d get with a shared plan, so the website performance boost will be noticeable. You can take advantage of the Memcached platform with any database-powered web application, no matter if you have built it on your own or you’re using a ready-made one such as OpenCart, WordPress or Joomla.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers
Any dedicated server that is ordered with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel comes with Memcached already installed by default, so you can start using the distributed memory caching system once your dedicated server is fully functional, without having to upgrade or install anything. The amount of system memory that Memcached can use depends on the dedicated server that you’ve picked, but as our servers are amazingly powerful and considering the fact that it is likely that you’ll host resource-hungry websites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the caching system can use will be three gigabytes. This will permit you to increase the overall performance of extremely popular sites with ease and you’ll note the difference soon after the Memcached caching system begins caching database calls. You can make full use of the system with any database-powered web page, including those based on famous CMSs such as Joomla and WordPress.
