Memcached is a data caching system, which has been gaining popularity lately due to its efficiency. It’s used to cache requests and responses between a database and the app that’s using it, which can improve the overall performance of your website and decrease the generated server load substantially. Anytime a web page on an app-powered website is visited, the app connects to the database and "asks" what information should be displayed, and then extracts it. With Memcached, these procedures are skipped, as the platform has already cached all the content that should be shown on a specific web page. In case any content is updated, the Memcached content is updated as well, so the visitors will never end up seeing outdated data. Memcached is an excellent choice for every Internet site that entices plenty of viewers, since it will boost its loading speed and will enhance the overall user experience.
Memcached in Shared Hosting
If you host script-based websites in a shared hosting account with our company, you’ll be able to add the Memcached object caching system to your shared web hosting plan with just a few clicks of the mouse from your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantly and, since the necessary extension is already installed on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform, you can begin using it right away. To give you more flexibility, we offer two different upgrades related to the number of instances (in other words – how many websites will use Memcached) and to the amount of system memory that the Memcached caching system will use. The latter is available in increments of 16 MB and you can order as much memory as you like. Logically, the more memory Memcached is allowed to use, the more content it will cache, so if you own a larger website with lots of data, you may require more memory to be able to make the most of the power that Memcached can offer you.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you choose to host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to take advantage of Memcached easily, since the data caching platform’s setup takes a few clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia Control Panel. The extension that it requires is already installed on our servers, so you can begin using the Memcached caching platform as soon as you add it to your account. You’ll be able to choose how many sites can use it and how much information can be cached, in other words – there are two different upgradable features – the instances and the system memory. You can order more of both, so if one of your websites becomes very popular, for instance, you can always add more memory to it. Our system is exceptionally flexible in this regard and we don’t tie a given number of instances to a pre-defined amount of system memory. You can employ the Memcached platform to improve the loading speed of any script-powered website, including those that are based on widely used Internet apps, such as Joomla or WordPress.
Memcached in VPS Servers
Memcached comes as standard with all VPS servers that are ordered with our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The PHP extension it needs to work properly is compiled when the VPS is configured, so you can start using the object caching platform the moment your brand-new VPS is fully operational. The system memory that the Memcached platform can employ depends on the particular plan, but even with the less powerful ones, you’ll get several hundred megabytes that will be at your disposal only for this platform. This will permit you to optimize the performance of multiple websites hosted on the Virtual Private Server at the same time and to decrease the load on the virtual machine even if you own data-rich script-powered web pages with numerous users. The Memcached caching platform can be used with any script – Drupal, Mambo or Joomla, or a custom one, and you’ll see the better overall performance shortly after you start using it.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers
Any dedicated server that’s ordered with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel comes with Memcached already installed by default, so you can begin using the memory caching system as soon as your dedicated server is fully ready, without having to install or upgrade anything. The amount of system memory that Memcached can use depends on the very server that you’ve picked, but as our servers are truly powerful and due to the fact that it’s likely that you will host resource-consuming websites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the system can use will be 3 gigabytes. This will allow you to boost the overall performance of extremely heavy websites without effort and you’ll note the difference shortly after the Memcached system starts caching database queries. You can use the Memcached caching system with any database-powered site, including those based on famous Content Management Systems such as WordPress and Joomla.
