Memcached is a memory caching platform, which has been gaining popularity lately due to its effectiveness. It is used to cache queries and responses between a database and the app that is using it, which can boost the performance of your Internet site and reduce the created load considerably. Every time a page on an application-driven website is opened, 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 all of the content that should appear on a certain page. When any data is edited, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ too, so the users will never see old data. The platform is an excellent choice for any Internet site that lures many visitors, since it will speed it up and will improve the overall user experience.
Memcached in Website Hosting
Memcached is offered as an upgrade with each website hosting plan that we offer and in case you would like to use it for any script-powered site that you host on our avant-garde cloud website hosting platform, you’ll be able to enable it in a few easy steps via your Hepsia Control Panel. During the process, you’ll be offered the option to upgrade two different features – the instances and the memory. The first one refers to the number of the sites that can use the Memcached data caching system simultaneously, so if you need it for several Internet sites, you can order a number of instances. The second one refers to the maximum amount of memory that the system will be permitted to use in order to cache data, so for many websites (or for one resource-hungry 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 ordered every time you need it. With the Memcached caching system, any script-driven Internet site hosted on our cloud servers will open incredibly fast.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can get the Memcached content caching system as an optional upgrade with each of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting and since it works with any script-based web application, you can use it for every website that you host on our servers, no matter what application you have used – Joomla, Mambo or WordPress, a custom app, etc. You can request the upgrade from the respective section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel from which you administer your semi-dedicated account, and you can select two separate features – the instances and the amount of memory that they will use. To put it in simple terms, these things specify the number of the websites that will use the Memcached system and how much memory the system will be able to use to cache your content. The two features are offered separately for more flexibility and one instance does not come with a pre-defined amount of memory. You can use Memcached with any kind of site and both you and your visitors will swiftly note the difference in the overall performance.
Memcached in VPS
Memcached is included by default with each and every virtual private server offered by our company provided that you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel, so you will not need to pay anything extra to be able to take advantage of the maximum capacity of this distributed memory object caching system. The more powerful Virtual Private Server plan you select, the more system memory Memcached will have for data caching purposes, but you’ll have at least several hundred megabytes at all times, which is much more than the amount of memory you would get with a shared web hosting package. This will allow you to use Memcached for a lot of websites, no matter how large they are, which in turn means that you can use a low-end plan for them without overloading your virtual machine. The caching system is perfect for script-based web applications like WordPress, OpenCart, Joomla or Mambo, and you can utilize it even with a custom-built app. Shortly after you activate Memcached, it will start caching info and you’ll notice the enhanced performance of your sites.
Memcached in Dedicated Hosting
Each dedicated server ordered with our Hepsia Control Panel comes with Memcached pre-installed by default, so you can begin using the caching system the moment your dedicated server is ready, without needing to upgrade or activate anything. The amount of memory that Memcached can employ depends on the dedicated server that you’ve picked, but since our servers are truly powerful and due to the fact that it’s likely that you will host resource-consuming sites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the system can use is 3 gigabytes. This will permit you to optimize the performance of extremely busy sites effortlessly and you’ll observe the difference soon after the Memcached system starts caching database requests. You can take advantage of the Memcached system with any database-powered website, including those based on popular Content Management Systems like Joomla and WordPress.
