Memcached is a memory caching system, which has been gaining popularity lately owing to its efficiency. It’s used to cache queries and responses between a database and the application that is using it, which can increase the overall performance of your Internet site and lessen the produced server load tremendously. Anytime a page on an application-driven Internet site is accessed, the app connects to the database and "asks" what information should be shown, and then extracts it. With Memcached, these steps are omitted, as the platform has already cached the content that should be shown on a certain webpage. When any content is modified, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the website visitors will never end up seeing out-of-date content. The platform is an excellent solution for any Internet site that has a lot of viewers, as it will make it incredibly fast and will improve the user experience.
Memcached in Shared Hosting
You can make use of the Memcached distributed memory caching system with all shared plans offered by our company. It’s offered as an upgrade, which you can activate with only a couple of clicks via your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. It requires an extension, which is already installed on our cloud hosting platform, so you can start using the Memcached caching system as soon as you order it. The upgrade is divided into two parts, which will offer you more versatility depending on the Internet sites that you would like to use it for. The first one specifies the number of the sites that will use the Memcached caching system, or the ‘instances’, whereas the second one refers to the memory, i.e. to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can add more system memory in increments of 16 MB and the more memory you’ve added, the more content will be cached, which may be a good idea for traffic-intensive websites with large databases and numerous visitors. Thus, you can increase the overall performance of any script-driven website hosted on our servers without efforts.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you choose to host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you can take advantage of Memcached with ease, since the data caching platform’s setup takes several mouse clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. The extension that it requires is pre-installed on our semi-dedicated servers, so you can start using Memcached as soon as you add it to your account. You’ll be able to select how many sites can use it and how much content can be cached, i.e. there are two different upgradable features – the instances and the amount of system memory. You can add more of both, so if one of your sites becomes very busy, for example, you can always get more memory. Our system is very flexible in this regard and we don’t bind a given number of instances to a pre-defined amount of system memory. You can employ Memcached to increase the loading speed of any script-powered Internet site, including those that are based on famous Internet applications, such as Joomla or WordPress.
Memcached in VPS Servers
Memcached is offered by default with each VPS server that we’re offering as long as you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel, so you won’t need to pay any extra money to be able to make the most of the maximum capacity of this distributed memory caching system. The more powerful package you choose, the more memory Memcached will have for content storage purposes, but you will have no less than several hundred megabytes all the time, which is much more than the amount of memory you would get with a shared package. This will permit you to use the Memcached caching system for lots of Internet sites, irrespective of how heavy they are, which in turn goes to say that you can use a lower-end plan for them without overloading the VPS server. The caching system is suitable for script-based apps like OpenCart, Joomla, WordPress or Mambo, and you can utilize it even with a custom-made app. Shortly after you activate Memcached, it will begin caching info and you will notice the optimized overall performance of your websites.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers
Memcached is available for free with all dedicated web hosting plans offered by us and the sole requirement is that the dedicated machine must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. You can use the memory caching system for any database-driven Internet site, including those that are based on famous apps – for instance, a WordPress online blog or a Joomla-driven social networking website. Each dedicated server is tied to a certain amount of memory that Memcached can use, but the minimum you will get is three gigabytes, which is quite enough to increase the load speed of very large websites noticeably, since this memory will be dedicated to storing the cached information. The Memcached system will start storing data as soon as it’s enabled, so soon thereafter, you’ll observe the enhanced performance of your websites and the reduced load on the dedicated machine. Numerous sites use the Memcached system to increase their efficacy, among them popular ones like Reddit and Wikipedia.
