Memcached is a data caching system, which has been gaining in popularity lately because of its efficiency. It is used to cache requests and replies between a database and the application that is using it, which can boost the performance of your website and reduce the created server load considerably. Anytime a page on an application-driven website is accessed, the app connects to the database and "asks" what info should be displayed, and then extracts it. With Memcached, these procedures are skipped, since the platform has already cached all of the content that should show up on a particular web page. When any content is changed, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the visitors will never end up seeing out-of-date data. The Memcached platform is an ideal choice for any website that has a lot of visitors, since it will increase its speed and will enhance the user experience.
Memcached in Shared Hosting
Memcached is available as an upgrade with each shared hosting account that we are offering and if you want to use it for any script-driven website that you host on our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform, you’ll be able to enable it in several easy steps via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. In the meantime, you will be given the option to upgrade two different things – the number of instances and the system memory. The first one is related to the number of the websites that can use the Memcached content caching system simultaneously, so if you need it for several websites, you can get a number of instances. The second one refers to the maximum amount of memory that Memcached will be permitted to use in order to cache information, so for a lot of websites (or for one single resource-absorbing site), you should get more memory for better results. The memory is available in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be ordered at any moment. With Memcached, any script-powered website hosted on our cloud servers will open much faster.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you acquire any of our semi-dedicated server packages, you’ll find Memcached as an optional upgrade in the Upgrades part of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so if you would like to use it for any of the websites hosted in your semi-dedicated server hosting account, you can activate it with just a few clicks. The content caching platform is ideal for any script-based web app like WordPress, Joomla, or even an in-house made application, and depending on your necessities, you will be able to choose two separate things – how many websites will use Memcached, in other words – the number of instances; and how much information will be stored, in other words – the amount of memory that the platform will use. The two things are not bound to each other, so if you have a traffic-consuming site with lots of data, you can get one instance and a larger amount of memory. The Memcached caching platform will improve the performance of your sites shortly after you enable it and both you and your website visitors will enjoy faster load speeds.
Memcached in VPS Web Hosting
If you buy a virtual private server from our company, you’ll be able to use Memcached at no extra charge, as the caching platform is offered with all Virtual Private Servers that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. Even if you manage content-loaded Internet sites, you will be able to enhance their overall performance without efforts and the lowered load on your VPS will allow you to keep your current VPS hosting package rather than moving to a more powerful one. The amount of system memory that the Memcached platform can use to store data depends on the package that you are using, but even with a low-end one, you’ll get no less than several hundred MB, which is significantly more than what you’d get with a shared hosting plan, so the website performance boost will be serious. You can take advantage of the Memcached platform with any database-powered web application, no matter if you’ve created it yourself or you are using a ready-to-use one like WordPress, OpenCart or Joomla.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting
Memcached is available free of charge with all Linux dedicated servers hosting packages that we’re offering and the one and only requirement 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 based on popular web-based applications – for instance, a WordPress personal journal or a Joomla-powered social networking website. Each dedicated server is tied to a specific amount of memory that the Memcached system can employ, but the minimum you will get is three gigabytes, which is quite enough to improve the load speed of extremely heavy websites tremendously, since this very memory will be dedicated to storing the cached information. The Memcached system will begin caching info as soon as it is activated, so shortly thereafter, you will distinguish the improved overall performance of your sites and the reduced load on your server. A lot of sites use the Memcached caching system to enhance their efficacy, including popular ones like Reddit and Wikipedia.
