Memcached is a memory caching system, which has been gaining popularity in recent years owing to its efficiency. It’s used to cache requests and responses between a database and the application that uses it, which can accelerate the performance of your Internet site and reduce the generated server load significantly. Every time a web page on an app-powered site is accessed, the app connects to the database and "asks" what information should be displayed, and then fetches it. With Memcached, these steps are skipped, as the platform has already cached all the content that should appear on a certain page. If any data is edited, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ too, so the visitors will never end up seeing outdated data. The Memcached platform is a perfect option for any website that has lots of viewers, as it will increase its speed and will improve the user experience.
Memcached in Web Hosting
When you host script-driven sites in a web hosting account with our company, you will be able to add the Memcached distributed memory caching system to your web hosting plan with just a few clicks of the mouse from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available immediately and, since the extension needed for it is already installed on our avant-garde cloud platform, you can begin using it right away. To give you more versatility, we offer two different upgrades related to the number of instances (in other words – how many sites will use Memcached) and to the amount of system memory that Memcached will use. The latter comes in increments of 16 MB and you can order as much memory as you want. Naturally, the more memory the Memcached caching system is allowed to use, the more data it will cache, so if you’ve got a high-traffic website with lots of data, you may require more memory so as to be able to make full use of the power that Memcached can give you.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you order any of our semi-dedicated server plans, you will find Memcached as an optional upgrade in the Upgrades part of the Hepsia Control Panel, so if you want to use it for any of the sites hosted in your account, you can enable it with only a few clicks. The content caching platform is perfect for any script-driven application such as Joomla, WordPress, or even a custom-developed one, and depending on your demands, you’ll be able to choose two separate things – how many Internet sites will use Memcached, i.e. the number of instances; and how much data will be stored, i.e. the amount of system memory that the platform will employ. The two features are not tied to each other, so if you’ve got a traffic-intensive website with a lot of data, you can get one instance and a large amount of memory. The Memcached platform will increase the overall performance of your sites soon after you activate it and both you and your site visitors will enjoy faster load speeds.
Memcached in VPS Hosting
When you order a virtual private server from our company, you will be able to use Memcached at no extra fee, as the memory caching platform comes with all servers ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Even if you run busy sites, you can enhance their overall performance effortlessly and the reduced load on the server will permit you to continue using your current Virtual Private Server plan rather than migrating to a more powerful one. The amount of memory that Memcached can use to store info depends on the package that you’re using, but even with a low-end one, you’ll get at least several hundred megabytes, which is considerably more than what you’d get with a shared web hosting package, so the website performance boost will be considerable. You can take advantage of Memcached with any database-powered app, irrespective of whether you’ve developed it yourself or you’re using a ready-for-use one like WordPress, Joomla or OpenCart.
Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting
If you get any of our dedicated hosting services and if you choose Hepsia as your website hosting Control Panel on the order page, you’ll get Memcached as standard and you can use it with any site that you host on the dedicated server without installing or upgrading anything. It will start caching info as users open your Internet site, so you will notice the results of using it soon after that. The minimum amount of system memory that will be available to the platform is three gigabytes and naturally, the more powerful the dedicated plan, the more memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will enable you to use the caching platform for a large number of websites or for a very heavy site without compromising its efficacy. The Memcached caching platform will permit you to enhance the loading speed of any database-powered website very quickly – a Joomla portal, a WordPress online blog, an OpenCart e-shop, etc., and to improve the performance of your dedicated server.
