Memcached is a content caching system, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years owing to its efficiency. It’s used to cache calls and replies between a database and the application that is using it, which can increase the overall performance of your Internet site and reduce the created load tremendously. Every time a webpage on an application-driven Internet site is accessed, the app connects to the database and "asks" what information should be shown, and then fetches it. With Memcached, these procedures are omitted, since the platform has already cached all of the content that should be displayed on a given page. If any data is edited, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ too, so the visitors will never end up seeing old content. The Memcached platform is a perfect solution for every website that lures plenty of visitors, since it will make it faster than the speed of light and will enhance the overall user experience.
Memcached in Cloud Website Hosting
You can make use of the Memcached distributed memory caching system with all Linux cloud website hosting that we are offering. It’s available as an optional upgrade, which you can obtain with only a couple of clicks from your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. It needs an extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud platform, so you can begin using Memcached once you order it. The upgrade is divided into two parts, which will give you more freedom depending on the sites that you would like to use it for. The first one determines the number of the sites that will use Memcached, or the so-called ‘instances’, whereas the second one refers to the system memory, i.e. to how much content the system will be able to cache. You can order more memory in increments of 16 MB and the more memory you’ve ordered, the more data will be cached, which may be a pretty good idea for heavy-traffic websites with large-sized databases and numerous visitors. In this way, you can increase the performance of any script-powered Internet site hosted on our cloud servers effortlessly.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you get any of our semi-dedicated server plans, you’ll find Memcached as an optional upgrade in the Upgrades section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so if you wish to use it for any of the Internet sites hosted in your semi-dedicated account, you can enable it with only a couple of clicks of the mouse. The object caching platform is suitable for any script-driven app such as WordPress, Joomla, or even a custom application, and based on your needs, you’ll be able to select two separate features – how many Internet sites will use Memcached, in other words – the number of instances; and how much information will be stored, i.e. the amount of memory that the platform will employ. The two things are not bound to each other, so if you manage a regularly visited website with lots of data, you can order one instance and a larger amount of system memory. The Memcached platform will enhance the overall performance of your websites shortly after you enable it and both you and your visitors will enjoy much better load times.
Memcached in VPS Servers
Memcached is offered by default with each VPS server that we offer if you select Hepsia as your Control Panel, so you won’t need to pay anything extra to be able to use the power of this object caching system. The more powerful plan you choose, the more system memory Memcached will have for information caching purposes, but you’ll have at least several hundred MB at all times, which is much more than the amount of memory you would get with a shared package. This will allow you to use the Memcached caching system for multiple websites, no matter how heavy they are, which in turn means that you can use a low-end package for them without overloading your VPS. The caching system is perfect for script-based apps like OpenCart, Joomla, WordPress or Mambo, and you can use it even with a custom-built app. Soon after you enable the Memcached caching system, it will start caching content and you will note the optimized overall performance of your sites.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers
Memcached is available free of charge with all dedicated servers that we offer and the sole condition is that the server must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can use the distributed memory caching system for any database-powered Internet site, including those that are based on famous web-based apps – for instance, a WordPress personal blog or a Joomla-powered community site. Each server is tied to a different amount of system memory that the Memcached system can employ, but the minimum you’ll get is three gigabytes, which is quite enough to boost the speed of extremely popular sites tremendously, as this memory will be dedicated to storing the cached info. The system will begin storing data once it’s activated, so soon after that, you will see the improved overall performance of your Internet sites and the reduced load on the server. Lots of websites use the Memcached system to boost their efficacy, including famous ones such as Wikipedia and Reddit.
