Memcached is a caching platform, which has been gaining in popularity lately thanks to its efficiency. It is used to cache queries and replies between a database and the app that’s using it, which can increase the performance of your Internet site and reduce the generated server load immensely. Every time a page on an app-driven Internet site is visited, the application connects to the database and "asks" what information should be displayed, and then fetches it. With Memcached, these steps are skipped, as the platform has already cached all the content that should appear on a particular webpage. In case any data is edited, the Memcached content is updated as well, so the visitors will never see old content. The platform is an excellent option for any website that draws numerous viewers, as it will make it incredibly fast and will enhance the overall user experience.
Memcached in Cloud Website Hosting
If you host script-powered sites in a cloud website hosting account with us, you’ll be able to add the Memcached memory caching system to your plan with just a few mouse clicks through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantaneously and, since the needed extension is already installed on our innovative cloud hosting platform, you can begin using it straight away. To give you more versatility, we offer two different upgrades related to the number of instances (in other words – how many websites will use Memcached) and to the amount of memory that the Memcached caching system will use. The latter is available in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order as much memory as you want. Logically, the more memory the Memcached caching system is allowed to use, the more content it will cache, so if you run a popular website with lots of data, you may need more memory to be able to take advantage of the power that Memcached can give you.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can add the Memcached caching platform to any of the semi-dedicated servers that we are offering and use its full capacity for any script-driven website hosted on our servers. The upgrade is offered through the Hepsia Control Panel and you can choose two features – the instances and the amount of system memory. These things specify how many websites can use the Memcached platform and how much system memory it will use to cache your content. You can select them independently, since a given instance is not tied to a specific amount of system memory, so you can use plenty of memory for a single traffic-heavy website, for example. This feature is available in increments of 16 megabytes and you can get as much memory as you want. The platform can be used with any script-driven website irrespective of its nature, including those that are based on widespread web-based applications like Joomla, WordPress or Drupal, and a lot of companies such as Zynga and Wikipedia are already using it to accelerate the speed of their websites.
Memcached in VPS Servers
When you order a VPS server from us, you will be able to use Memcached at no extra charge, as the object caching platform comes with all virtual servers ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. Even if you run large-scale Internet sites, you can boost their overall performance with no effort and the lowered load on your Virtual Private Server will permit you to keep using your current VPS package rather than moving to a more powerful one. The amount of memory that Memcached can use to cache content depends on the plan that you are using, but even with a lower-end one, you’ll get at least several hundred MB, which is significantly more than what you’d get with a shared package, so the website performance boost will be considerable. You can use Memcached with any database-powered application, regardless of whether you’ve developed it on your own or you are using a ready-made one such as Joomla, WordPress or OpenCart.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers
Each dedicated server ordered with our Hepsia Control Panel comes with Memcached already installed by default, so you can start using the distributed memory object caching system as soon as the dedicated server is set up, without having to upgrade or activate anything. The amount of system memory that Memcached can employ depends on the server that you have selected, but as our servers are unbelievably powerful and due to the fact that it’s likely that you’ll host resource-intensive Internet sites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the caching system can use is 3 gigabytes. This will permit you to increase the overall performance of extremely popular sites without efforts and you will detect the difference shortly after the Memcached system starts caching database calls. You can take advantage of the Memcached caching system with any database-powered site, including those based on widely used Content Management Systems such as Joomla and WordPress.
