Memcached is a caching system, 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 is using it, which can boost the overall performance of your website and lessen the created server load significantly. Every time a page on an app-driven site is visited, the application connects to the database and "asks" what information should be displayed, and then pulls it. With Memcached, these procedures are skipped, as the platform has already cached all of the content that should appear on a given page. When any content is updated, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ too, so the visitors will never see out-of-date data. The Memcached platform is an excellent solution for any site that attracts lots of viewers, as it will make it truly fast and will enhance the user experience.
Memcached in Website Hosting
You can make use of the Memcached memory caching system with all Linux website hosting packages
offered by us. It’s available as an optional upgrade, which you can obtain with just a couple of mouse clicks through your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. It needs an extension, which is already installed on our cloud web hosting platform, so you can begin using the Memcached caching system as soon as you order it. The upgrade is divided into two parts, which will give you more freedom depending on the Internet sites that you want to use it for. The first part defines the number of the sites that will use the Memcached caching system, or the so-called ‘instances’, while the second one refers to the memory, i.e. to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can order more memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you have, the more content will be cached, which may be a quite good idea for heavy-traffic sites with large-size databases and many concurrent visitors. In this way, you can improve the performance of every script-driven site hosted on our servers without any effort.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can add the Memcached data caching platform to any of the Linux semi-dedicated packages
that we’re offering and use its full potential for any script-driven Internet site hosted by us. The upgrade is offered through the Hepsia Control Panel and you can choose two features – the instances and the system memory. These things determine the number of the sites that can use Memcached and the amount of memory that it will use to store your information. You can choose them independently, since one instance is not tied to a fixed amount of memory, so you can use lots of memory for a single regularly visited Internet site, for instance. This feature is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and you can get as much memory as you like. The platform can be used with any script-powered website irrespective of its type, including those that are based on widely used web apps like Drupal™
, WordPress or Joomla™
, and lots of companies such as Wikipedia and Zynga are already using it to increase the loading speed of their sites.
Memcached in VPS
Memcached is available as standard with all Linux VPS packages
ordered with our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The PHP extension it needs in order to perform properly is compiled when the server is set up, so you can begin using the object caching platform once your new VPS server is ready. The memory that Memcached can use depends on the given plan, but even with the lower-end plans, you will get several hundred megabytes that will be at your disposal exclusively for this platform. This will permit you to enhance the overall performance of numerous sites hosted on the VPS server simultaneously and to reduce the load on the virtual machine even if you have busy script-powered portals with plenty of visitors. The Memcached caching platform can be used with any script – Drupal™
, Mambo or Joomla™
, or a custom-developed one, and you will distinguish the faster performance soon after you start using it.
Memcached in Dedicated Hosting
Any dedicated server
that is ordered with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel comes with Memcached already installed by default, so you can begin using this content caching system once your dedicated server is fully functional, without having to upgrade or install anything. The amount of system memory that Memcached can employ depends on the server that you have picked, but as our servers are incredibly powerful and considering the fact that it is likely that you’ll host resource-consuming websites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the caching system can use is 3 GB. This will allow you to enhance the performance of extremely popular websites with ease and you’ll notice the difference soon after Memcached begins caching database requests. You can use the system with any database-driven web page, including those that are based on widely used Content Management Systems such as Joomla™
