Memcached is a content caching system, which has been gaining in popularity lately because of its effectiveness. It is used to cache requests and replies between a database and the app that uses it, which can increase the performance of your Internet site and decrease the produced server load greatly. Every time a web page on an application-driven site is opened, the app connects to the database and "asks" what info should be shown, and then fetches it. With Memcached, these procedures are omitted, since the platform has already cached the content that should be displayed on a specific webpage. If any data is updated, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the visitors will never see old data. The Memcached platform is an ideal option for every Internet site that entices lots of viewers, as it will make it open faster and will enhance the user experience.
Memcached in Shared Hosting
Memcached comes as an optional upgrade with each shared hosting package offered by us and in case you want to use it for any script-powered site that you host on our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform, you will be able to enable it in a few easy steps via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. In the meantime, you will be given the option to upgrade two separate things – the instances and the system memory. The first one has to do with the number of the websites that can use the Memcached memory caching system at the same time, so if you need it for several Internet sites, you can get a handful of instances. The second one refers to the maximum amount of memory that Memcached will be allowed to use to cache content, so for numerous sites (or for one busy site), you may want to order more memory for better results. The memory comes in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be ordered at any moment. With the Memcached caching system, every script-driven website hosted on our servers will load amazingly fast.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you decide to host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to take advantage of Memcached with ease, since the distributed memory caching platform’s activation takes a couple of clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The extension that is required is pre-installed on our servers, so you can begin using the Memcached platform as soon as you add it to your account. You’ll be able to select how many Internet sites can use it and how much information can be cached, in other words – there are two different upgradable features – the number of instances and the amount of memory. You can add more of both, so if one of your sites becomes extremely busy, for instance, you can always get more memory. Our system is stunningly flexible in this regard and we don’t bind a specific number of instances to a fixed amount of system memory. You can employ the Memcached caching platform to increase the speed of any script-powered website, including those that are based on famous web-based apps, such as WordPress or Joomla.
Memcached in VPS Servers
If you acquire a VPS server from our company, you’ll be able to use Memcached at no additional charge, as the content caching platform is offered with all VPSs ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Even if you own large-size websites, you’ll be able to improve their performance with ease and the reduced load on the VPS server will enable you to keep your current VPS hosting plan instead of moving to a more powerful one. The amount of memory that the Memcached caching platform can use to cache information depends on the plan that you’re using, but even with a less powerful one, you will have at least several hundred megabytes, which is significantly more than what you’d get with a shared web hosting package, so the website performance boost will be immense. You can use Memcached with any database-driven web application, regardless of whether you have set it up yourself or you’re using a ready-to-use one such as OpenCart, Joomla or WordPress.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers
Memcached comes for free with all dedicated servers that we offer and the only requirement is that the server must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can use the content caching system for any database-powered site, including those that are based on famous applications – for instance, a WordPress personal weblog or a Joomla-powered community portal. Each server comes with a different amount of system memory that Memcached can use, but the minimum amount you will get is 3 GB, which is sufficient enough to improve the speed of very busy websites tremendously, since this very memory will be dedicated to storing the cached info. The Memcached system will begin storing content the moment it is activated, so soon thereafter, you will observe the enhanced overall performance of your websites and the decreased server load. Lots of websites use Memcached to increase their efficiency, including famous ones like Wikipedia and Reddit.
