Memcached is a caching platform, which has been gaining popularity lately due to its efficiency. It’s used to cache queries and replies between a database and the application that’s using it, which can increase the overall performance of your site and decrease the generated load significantly. Every time a web page on an application-powered website is opened, the application connects to the database and "asks" what info should be shown, and then pulls it. With Memcached, these steps are skipped, as the platform has already cached all of the content that should appear on a given webpage. If any data is updated, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ too, so the visitors will never see out-of-date content. The platform is an ideal solution for any Internet site that draws plenty of viewers, since it will make it truly fast and will improve the overall user experience.
Memcached in Website Hosting
Memcached is offered as an upgrade with each and every website hosting plan that we offer and in case you’d like to use it for any script-based website that you host on our innovative cloud hosting platform, you’ll be able to add it in a few simple steps via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. In the meantime, you will get the option to upgrade two separate things – the number of instances and the system memory. The first one refers to the number of the Internet sites that can use the Memcached content caching system simultaneously, so if you need it for several Internet sites, you can order a number of instances. The second one has to do with the total amount of memory that the system will be able to use in order to cache content, so for lots of websites (or for one popular site), you’d better get more memory for better performance. The memory is available in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be ordered at any time. With the Memcached caching system, any script-powered Internet site hosted on our servers will load blazing-fast.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can add the Memcached distributed memory caching platform to any of the semi-dedicated servers offered by our company and make use of its full potential for any script-powered Internet site hosted by us. The upgrade is available through the Hepsia Control Panel and you can choose two features – the number of instances and the amount of memory. These things show the number of the sites that can use the Memcached caching platform and the amount of memory that it will use to store your information. You can select them separately, since one instance is not tied to a particular amount of memory, so you can use a lot of memory for a single resource-demanding Internet site, for example. This feature is available in increments of 16 MB and you can order as much memory as you want. The Memcached platform can be used with any script-powered site irrespective of its type, including those that are based on widely used web applications like Joomla, WordPress or Drupal, and many companies like Zynga and Wikipedia are already using it to improve the performance of their sites.
Memcached in VPS Servers
If you order a VPS server from our company, you will be able to use Memcached at no additional charge, as the distributed memory object caching platform is available with all virtual servers that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Even if you’ve got resource-hungry websites, you can accelerate their performance with no effort and the reduced load on your VPS server will enable you to keep your current Virtual Private Server package rather than switching to a more powerful one. The amount of memory that Memcached can use to store data depends on the package that you’re using, but even with a less powerful one, you will have no less than several hundred MB, which is significantly more than what you’d get with a shared hosting package, so the website performance boost will be substantial. You can use Memcached with any database-powered web app, no matter if you have created it yourself or you’re using a ready-for-use one such as OpenCart, Joomla or WordPress.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers
Memcached is available for free with all dedicated servers offered by our company and the one and only requirement is that the dedicated server must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. You can use the object caching system for any database-powered Internet site, including those based on famous applications – for example, a WordPress weblog or a Joomla-driven community portal. Each dedicated server is tied to a different amount of memory that the Memcached caching system can use, but the minimum amount you’ll get is three gigabytes, which is quite enough to enhance the speed of very popular websites tremendously, as this very memory will be dedicated to storing the cached data. The Memcached system will start storing information the moment it’s activated, so soon after that, you’ll see the enhanced overall performance of your sites and the lowered server load. Numerous sites use the Memcached caching system to boost their efficiency, including popular ones like Wikipedia and Reddit.
