Memcached is a memory caching platform, which has been gaining popularity lately thanks to its efficiency. It is used to cache queries and replies between a database and the app that’s using it, which can accelerate the overall performance of your site and decrease the generated server load substantially. Anytime a web page on an application-driven site is accessed, the app connects to the database and "asks" what info should be shown, and then extracts it. With Memcached, these procedures are skipped, since the platform has already cached all the content that should be shown on a specific webpage. When any content is modified, the Memcached content is updated as well, so the site visitors will never end up seeing outdated data. The platform is an excellent option for any website that draws a lot of visitors, since it will accelerate it and will improve the overall user experience.
Memcached in Cloud Hosting
Memcached is offered as an optional upgrade with each and every cloud hosting account that we offer and in case you wish to use it for any script-powered site that you host on our innovative cloud hosting platform, you’ll be able to add it in a couple of simple steps via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. During the process, you’ll get the option to upgrade two separate features – the number of instances and the memory. The first one refers to the number of the websites that can use the Memcached content caching system at the same time, so if you need it for several sites, you can get a number of instances. The second one has to do with the total amount of memory that the system will be allowed to use to cache content, so for many websites (or for one single resource-demanding site), you may want to get more memory for better results. The memory comes in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be ordered at any time. With Memcached, every script-driven site hosted on our servers will open incredibly fast.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you choose to host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to take advantage of Memcached effortlessly, since the caching platform’s activation takes a couple of mouse clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. The PHP extension that it requires is pre-installed on our servers, so you can start using Memcached the moment you add it to your account. You will be able to select how many sites can use it and how much information it will cache, i.e. there’re two different features that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the system memory. You can get more of both, so if one of your sites becomes very popular, for example, you can always get more memory. Our system is exceptionally flexible in this regard and we don’t tie a given number of instances to a fixed amount of system memory. You can take advantage of the Memcached caching platform to improve the speed of any script-driven Internet site, including those that are based on popular software apps, such as Joomla or WordPress.
Memcached in VPS Servers
You will get Memcached with any of the VPS server plans that we are offering if you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel and you will be able to activate the distributed memory object caching platform via the section with the same name. The setup requires a couple of mouse clicks and you’ll distinguish the difference in the overall performance of your sites almost momentarily. The amount of memory that Memcached can take advantage of to store information depends on the given VPS hosting plan that you’ve picked, but in any case it will be at least several hundred megabytes, which is more than enough even for multiple frequently visited sites. You can use Memcached with Internet sites driven by Joomla, WordPress or any other app and decrease the load on your virtual machine, which will allow you to keep using the current VPS hosting package rather than migrating to a more powerful one, since you simply won’t need it. The Memcached platform is already being used by famous websites like Wikipedia, Reddit and Zynga, which confirms its efficacy.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers
If you buy any of our dedicated web hosting plans and if you pick Hepsia as your website hosting Control Panel during the signup process, you’ll get the Memcached memory caching platform by default and you can use it with any website that you host on your dedicated server without upgrading or installing anything. It will begin storing information as users access your website, so you’ll notice the result of using it soon after that. The minimum amount of system memory that will be available to the Memcached platform is 3 GB and normally, the more powerful the package, the more system memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will permit you to take advantage of the platform for numerous sites or for an extremely busy website without weakening its efficiency. Memcached will permit you to boost the loading speed of any database-powered website very quickly – a Joomla portal, a WordPress personal weblog, an OpenCart web store, etc., and to boost the performance of your dedicated machine.
