Memcached is a data caching platform, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years thanks to its efficiency. It is used to cache queries and responses between a database and the application that uses it, which can enhance the overall performance of your Internet site and reduce the generated server load drastically. Anytime a page on an application-driven website is opened, the app connects to the database and "asks" what info should be shown, and then drags it. With Memcached, these procedures are skipped, as the platform has already cached all of the content that should show up on a specific page. If any content is edited, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the visitors will never see old content. Memcached is an ideal choice for any Internet site that lures a lot of viewers, since it will make it truly fast and will improve the overall user experience.
Memcached in Web Hosting
You can take advantage of the Memcached object caching system with all Linux web hosting service offered by us. It is available as an optional upgrade, which you can get with only a few mouse clicks from your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. It requires an extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud hosting platform, so you can start using Memcached as soon as you order it. The upgrade is separated into two parts, which will give you more versatility depending on the Internet sites that you wish to use it for. The first one concerns the number of the Internet sites that will use the Memcached caching system, or the ‘instances’, while the second one is related to the memory, i.e. to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can get more system memory in increments of 16 MB and the more memory you’ve got, the more data will be cached, which may be a really good idea for traffic-intensive sites with large databases and lots of concurrent visitors. In this way, you can supercharge the overall performance of every script-based site hosted on our cloud servers effortlessly.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you order any of our semi-dedicated server plans, you will find Memcached as an optional upgrade in the Upgrades section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so if you would like to use it for any of the Internet sites hosted in your account, you can enable it with just a few mouse clicks. The platform is perfect for any script-powered software app like Joomla, WordPress, or even an in-house made application, and based 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 data will be stored, i.e. the amount of memory that the platform will employ. The two features are not tied to each other, so if you have a high-demand website with a lot of data, you can get one instance and a large amount of memory. The Memcached platform will improve the overall performance of your websites shortly after you enable it and both you and your website visitors will enjoy faster loading times.
Memcached in VPS Servers
You’ll get Memcached with each of the VPS server plans that we are offering if you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to activate the content caching platform via the section with the exact same name. The setup takes a few clicks of the mouse and you will see the difference in the overall performance of your websites almost immediately. The amount of memory that Memcached can use to store info depends on the given Virtual Private Server hosting package that you have selected, but at any rate it will be at least several hundred megabytes, which is quite enough even for multiple large-size sites. You can use the Memcached platform with websites based on WordPress, Joomla or any other software application and decrease the load on your Virtual Private Server, which will permit you to keep using the current package instead of migrating to a more powerful one, since you will simply not need it. The Memcached platform is already being used by famous websites like Zynga, Wikipedia and Reddit, which verifies its efficiency.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers
When you buy one of our dedicated servers and if you pick Hepsia as your web hosting Control Panel during the signup procedure, you’ll get the Memcached distributed memory object caching platform as standard and you can enable it for each site that you host on your dedicated machine without upgrading or installing anything. It will begin storing info as people open your Internet site, so you will notice the effects of using it soon thereafter. The minimum amount of memory that will be available to the caching platform is 3 gigabytes and naturally, the more powerful the dedicated plan, the more system memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will allow you to take advantage of the caching platform for lots of websites or for an extremely popular website without compromising its effectiveness. Memcached will allow you to optimize the loading speed of any database-powered site in no time – a Joomla portal, a WordPress online journal, an OpenCart e-store, etcetera, and to enhance the performance of your dedicated server.
