Memcached is a distributed memory caching system, which has been gaining popularity lately because of its effectiveness. It’s used to cache requests and replies between a database and the app that is using it, which can increase the overall performance of your site and decrease the generated load drastically. Anytime a page on an application-powered website is opened, the application connects to the database and "asks" what information should be displayed, and then pulls it. With Memcached, these procedures are skipped, since the platform has already cached all of the content that should be shown on a given page. In case any content is changed, the Memcached content is updated too, so the site visitors will never see out-of-date content. The Memcached platform is a perfect option for every Internet site that entices numerous visitors, as it will increase its speed and will improve the overall user experience.
Memcached in Hosting
You can make use of the Memcached distributed memory object caching system with all Linux hosting
offered by us. It’s offered as an optional upgrade, which you can add with only a couple of clicks from your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. It needs an extension, which is already installed on our cloud web hosting platform, so you can start using Memcached once you add it. The upgrade is divided into two parts, which will give you more versatility depending on the websites that you wish to use it for. The first one shows the number of the Internet sites that will use Memcached, or the ‘instances’, whereas the second one is related to the system memory, in other words – to how much content the system will be able to cache. You can order more memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you’ve ordered, the more content will be cached, which may be a quite good idea for high-traffic sites with large-sized databases and many concurrent visitors. Thus, you can optimize the speed of every script-powered Internet site hosted on our cloud servers without any efforts.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can get the Memcached distributed memory caching system as an upgrade with all our semi-dedicated hosting
and since it works with any script-powered software app, you can use it for any website that you host on our semi-dedicated servers, no matter what application you have used – Joomla™
, WordPress or Mambo, a custom application, etc. You can add the upgrade through the respective section of the Hepsia Control Panel from which you administer your semi-dedicated account, and you can choose two different features – the instances and the amount of system memory that they will use. To put it in simple terms, these things indicate the number of the websites that will use Memcached and the amount of system memory that the system will be able to use to store your content. The two features are offered independently for more freedom and one instance does not come bundled with a fixed amount of system memory. You can make the most of the Memcached system with any type of website and both you and your visitors will swiftly note the difference in the overall performance.
Memcached in VPS Web Hosting
Memcached is included by default with each virtual private server
that we offer as long as you select Hepsia as your Control Panel, so you won’t have to pay any extra money to be able to make the most of the full potential of this object caching system. The more powerful plan you select, the more system memory Memcached will have for data caching purposes, but you will have no less than several hundred megabytes all the time, which is much more than the amount of memory you would get with a shared web hosting plan. This will permit you to use the Memcached caching system for many websites, no matter how busy they are, which in turn goes to say that you can use a less powerful plan for them without overloading your virtual server. The caching system is ideal for script-driven software apps such as WordPress, Joomla™
, OpenCart or Mambo, and you can utilize it even with a custom-made app. Shortly after you activate the Memcached caching system, it will begin storing info and you will perceive the enhanced performance of your sites.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting
If you purchase one of our Linux dedicated hosting services
and if you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel on the order page, you will get Memcached by default and you can use it with any website that you host on your dedicated machine without installing or upgrading anything. It will begin storing data as users visit your Internet site, so you’ll notice the effects of using it soon thereafter. The minimum amount of memory that will be available to the Memcached caching platform is 3 gigabytes and normally, the more powerful the dedicated package, the more system memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will permit you to take advantage of the caching platform for lots of Internet sites or for an extremely heavy Internet site without compromising its effectiveness. Memcached will allow you to speed up any database-powered Internet site in no time – a Joomla™
portal, a WordPress personal weblog, an OpenCart e-shop, etcetera, and to boost the overall performance of your server.
