Memcached is a distributed memory caching system, which has been gaining popularity lately due to its effectiveness. It is used to cache queries and responses between a database and the app that is using it, which can boost the performance of your website and lessen the generated server load drastically. Every time a webpage on an application-driven website is accessed, the app connects to the database and "asks" what information should be shown, and then drags it. With Memcached, these procedures are omitted, as the platform has already cached all the content that should show up on a given webpage. If any data is changed, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ too, so the site visitors will never end up seeing out-of-date content. Memcached is an ideal solution for any site that draws numerous viewers, as it will make it astonishingly fast and will enhance the overall user experience.
Memcached in Shared Hosting
Memcached is available as an upgrade with each shared hosting account that we offer and if you want to use it for any script-driven site that you host on our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform, you’ll be able to enable it in a few simple steps through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. During the process, you’ll be given the option to upgrade two different features – the number of instances and the system memory. The first one has to do with the number of the sites that can use the Memcached content caching system simultaneously, so if you need it for several websites, you can order a handful of instances. The second one refers to the maximum amount of memory that the system will be allowed to use to cache information, so for lots of websites (or for one single traffic-intensive site), you should get more memory for better results. The memory is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be added at any point. With Memcached, each script-based Internet site hosted on our servers will load faster than the speed of light.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you get any of our semi-dedicated server plans, you’ll find Memcached as an optional feature in the Upgrades section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so if you wish to use it for any of the websites hosted in the semi-dedicated server hosting account, you can add it with only a couple of mouse clicks. The data caching platform is suitable for any script-based web app like Joomla, WordPress, or even a custom-developed one, and based on your demands, you will be able to choose two separate features – how many Internet sites will use the Memcached platform, in other words – the number of instances; and how much data will be cached, in other words – the amount of memory that the platform will employ. The two features are not tied to each other, so if you’ve got a traffic-consuming Internet site with lots of content, you can get one instance and a large amount of system memory. The Memcached platform will boost the overall performance of your sites soon after you activate it and both you and your website visitors will enjoy much faster loading times.
Memcached in VPS Servers
You will get Memcached with each of the VPS server packages that we offer when you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel and you will be able to activate the object caching platform via the Control Panel section with the exact same name. The setup takes a couple of clicks and you’ll detect the difference in the performance of your websites almost momentarily. The amount of memory that the Memcached platform can use to store content depends on the particular VPS hosting package that you’ve chosen, but in any case it won’t be less than several hundred megabytes, which is more than enough even for several resource-intensive websites. You can use Memcached with sites driven by Joomla, WordPress or any other web-based application and reduce the load on your virtual server, which will allow you to continue using the current Virtual Private Server package instead of upgrading to a more powerful one, as you simply won’t need it. Memcached is already being used by popular websites like Wikipedia, Zynga and Reddit, which proves its effectiveness.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers
Any dedicated server that is ordered with our Hepsia Control Panel comes with Memcached already installed by default, so you can start using the distributed memory object caching system as soon as your dedicated server is completely ready, without having to install or upgrade anything. The amount of memory that Memcached can use depends on the dedicated server that you’ve picked, but since our servers are truly powerful and given the fact that it’s likely that you’ll host resource-heavy Internet sites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the caching system can use is 3 GB. This will allow you to optimize the overall performance of extremely popular websites effortlessly and you’ll distinguish the difference soon after Memcached starts caching database queries. You can make the most of the Memcached system with any database-powered website, including those based on famous Content Management Systems like Joomla and WordPress.
