Memcached is a distributed memory caching system, which has been gaining in popularity lately due to its effectiveness. It is used to cache calls and responses between a database and the app that is using it, which can boost the overall performance of your Internet site and decrease the created load substantially. Anytime a page on an app-driven site is opened, the app connects to the database and "asks" what info should be displayed, and then pulls it. With Memcached, these steps are omitted, as the platform has already cached all of the content that should be shown on a given web page. When any content is updated, the Memcached content is updated too, so the site visitors will never see out-of-date content. Memcached is a perfect option for every website that lures a lot of viewers, since it will make it faster than the speed of sound and will enhance the user experience.
Memcached in Cloud Hosting
Memcached is available as an optional upgrade with each cloud hosting package that we are offering and in case you would like to use it for any script-powered website that you host on our advanced cloud hosting platform, you’ll be able to enable it in several easy steps through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. During the process, you will get the option to upgrade two separate features – the number of instances and the memory. The first one has to do with the number of the sites that can use the Memcached caching system at the same time, so if you need it for several websites, you can get a number of instances. The second one has to do with the total amount of memory that Memcached will be able to use in order to cache data, so for lots of sites (or for one resource-intensive site), you should order more memory for better results. The memory comes in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be ordered at any time. With Memcached, any script-powered website hosted on our servers will open incredibly fast.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you choose to host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to take advantage of Memcached with ease, since the platform’s setup requires a couple of clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia Control Panel. The required extension is already installed on our servers, so you can begin using Memcached as soon as you add it to your account. You will be able to choose how many Internet sites can use it and how much info can be cached, in other words – there are two separate features that can be upgraded – the instances and the memory. You can add more of both, so if one of your Internet sites becomes extremely busy, for instance, you can always get more memory. Our system is pretty flexible in this regard and we do not bind a specific number of instances to a fixed amount of memory. You can take advantage of the Memcached caching platform to speed up any script-powered website, including those that are based on widely used applications, such as WordPress or Joomla.
Memcached in VPS Servers
When you order a VPS server from us, you’ll be able to use Memcached at no additional price, as the data caching platform is offered with all Virtual Private Servers ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. Even if you manage content-heavy sites, you can boost their performance with ease and the decreased load on your VPS server will allow you to keep using your current Virtual Private Server hosting plan instead of upgrading to a more powerful one. The amount of memory that the Memcached caching platform can use to store info depends on the package that you are using, but even with a lower-end one, you’ll have at least several hundred MB, which is significantly more than what you’d get with a shared plan, so the website performance boost will be great. You can use the Memcached platform with any database-driven application, irrespective of whether you have developed it on your own or you’re using a ready-made one like OpenCart, Joomla or WordPress.
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 begin using the content caching system the moment the server is fully ready, without the need to activate or upgrade anything. The amount of memory that Memcached can use depends on the server that you’ve chosen, but as our servers are rather powerful and considering the fact that it’s likely that you’ll host resource-demanding websites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the caching system can use is 3 gigabytes. This will permit you to improve the overall performance of very busy websites without any effort and you will notice the difference shortly after Memcached begins caching database requests. You can make the most of the Memcached caching system with any database-powered web portal, including those that are based on popular CMSs like Joomla and WordPress.
