Memcached is a distributed memory object caching system, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years because of its efficiency. It is used to cache queries and replies between a database and the application that’s using it, which can enhance the performance of your site and lessen the produced server load considerably. Every time a web page on an app-driven website is visited, the application connects to the database and "asks" what information should be displayed, and then extracts it. With Memcached, these procedures are omitted, as the platform has already cached all of the content that should be displayed on a certain web page. If any data is changed, the Memcached content is updated too, so the users will never see old content. Memcached is an excellent option for every Internet site that attracts a lot of visitors, since it will make it extremely fast and will enhance the overall user experience.
Memcached in Cloud Website Hosting
You can use the Memcached data caching system with all Linux cloud website hosting service that we’re offering. It is available as an optional upgrade, which you can activate with just a couple of clicks of the mouse through your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. It needs a PHP extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud website hosting platform, so you can start using the Memcached caching system once you add it. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts, which will give you more versatility depending on the Internet sites that you wish to use it for. The first one defines the number of the Internet sites that will use Memcached, or the ‘instances’, while the second one is related to the memory, in other words – to how much content the system will be able to cache. You can order more system memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you have ordered, the more data will be cached, which may be a really good idea for high-traffic sites with large databases and numerous concurrent visitors. In this way, you can enhance the speed of any script-based Internet site hosted on our cloud servers effortlessly.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you choose to host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to take advantage of Memcached easily, as the object caching platform’s setup requires a few mouse clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The required extension is pre-installed on our semi-dedicated servers, so you can begin using the Memcached platform the moment you add it to your semi-dedicated server account. You’ll be able to choose how many websites can use it and how much content can be cached, in other words – there’re two separate upgradable features – the number of instances and the memory. You can get more of both, so if one of your websites becomes extremely popular, for instance, you can always get more memory. Our system is unbelievably flexible in this regard and we don’t bind a specific number of instances to a pre-defined amount of memory. You can employ the Memcached platform to increase the speed of any script-driven site, including those that are based on widely used web apps, such as Joomla or WordPress.
Memcached in VPS Servers
Memcached is offered by default with each and every VPS server that we’re offering if 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 power of this object caching system. The more powerful plan you choose, the more memory Memcached will have for data caching purposes, but you’ll have no less than several hundred megabytes all the time, which is much more than what you would get with a shared package. This will allow you to use Memcached for many Internet sites, no matter how busy they are, which in turn means that you can use a less powerful package for them without overloading your virtual machine. The caching system is perfect for script-powered web applications like WordPress, OpenCart, Joomla or Mambo, and you can utilize it even with a custom-made app. Soon after you activate the Memcached caching system, it will begin storing data and you’ll spot the improved performance of your sites.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers
Each dedicated server that’s ordered with our Hepsia Control Panel comes with Memcached already installed by default, so you can start using this data caching system once your server is up and running, without needing to activate or upgrade anything. The amount of system memory that Memcached can employ depends on the very server that you have selected, but since our servers are stunningly powerful and due to the fact that it is likely that you will host resource-intensive sites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the system can use will be 3 GB. This will allow you to accelerate the performance of very busy Internet sites with ease and you will notice the difference shortly after Memcached starts caching database queries. You can use the Memcached system with any database-powered site, including those that are based on widely used CMSs such as WordPress and Joomla.
