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 app that uses it, which can accelerate the performance of your Internet site and decrease the created load drastically. Every time a webpage on an app-driven Internet site is opened, the app connects to the database and "asks" what information should be shown, and then pulls it. With Memcached, these procedures are skipped, as the platform has already cached the content that should show up on a particular page. If any data is modified, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ too, so the visitors will never see out-of-date data. The platform is an excellent solution for any site that entices lots of viewers, since it will make it truly fast and will enhance the overall user experience.
Memcached in Hosting
Memcached is offered as an optional upgrade with each and every hosting package that we’re offering and if you’d like to use it for any script-based Internet site that you host on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform, you will be able to activate it in a few simple steps through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. During the process, you’ll be given 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 distributed memory object caching system at the same time, so if you need it for several sites, you can order a handful of instances. The second one refers to the maximum amount of memory that Memcached will be permitted to use in order to cache data, so for many sites (or for one single large-sized site), you may want to get more memory for better performance. The memory comes in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be added every time you need it. With Memcached, each script-driven website hosted on our servers will open extremely fast.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you choose to host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you can take advantage of Memcached effortlessly, since the content caching platform’s activation takes several mouse clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. The PHP extension that is required is already installed on our semi-dedicated servers, so you can begin using the Memcached platform as soon as you add it to your semi-dedicated server account. You will be able to choose how many Internet sites can use it and how much data can be cached, in other words – there are two different features that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the system memory. You can order more of both, so if one of your sites becomes extremely busy, for example, you can always add more memory to it. Our system is really flexible in this regard and we don’t tie a particular number of instances to a fixed amount of system memory. You can use the Memcached caching platform to accelerate any script-powered Internet site, including those based on famous web apps, such as WordPress or Joomla.
Memcached in VPS Servers
You will get Memcached with any of the VPS server packages offered by us in case you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel and you will be able to activate the object caching platform through the section with the very same name. The activation takes a few mouse clicks and you’ll distinguish the difference in the overall performance of your sites almost momentarily. The amount of system memory that Memcached can use to cache information depends on the particular VPS hosting plan that you’ve chosen, but in any case it will be at least several hundred MB, which is quite enough even for multiple busy websites. You can use the Memcached platform with websites based on Joomla, WordPress or any other software app and lower the load on your virtual server, which will permit you to continue using the current package rather than upgrading to a more powerful one, as you simply won’t need it. The Memcached platform is already being used by famous websites such as Wikipedia, Reddit and Zynga, which is a proof of its efficacy.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers
Any dedicated server ordered with our Hepsia Control Panel comes with Memcached already installed by default, so you can start using the data caching system once your server is fully operational, without the need to upgrade or activate anything. The amount of system memory that Memcached can use depends on the server that you have chosen, but as our servers are incredibly powerful and considering the fact that it is likely that you’ll host resource-consuming websites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the system can use is three gigabytes. This will enable you to boost the overall performance of extremely popular sites effortlessly and you’ll observe the difference shortly after Memcached begins caching database queries. You can take advantage of the Memcached caching system with any database-powered website, including those that are based on popular Content Management Systems such as Joomla and WordPress.
