Memcached is a memory caching system, which has been gaining in popularity lately owing to its efficiency. It is used to cache queries and responses between a database and the application that uses it, which can increase the performance of your Internet site and reduce the produced server load substantially. Anytime a webpage on an app-powered site is accessed, the application connects to the database and "asks" what info should be displayed, and then extracts it. With Memcached, these procedures are skipped, as the platform has already cached all of the content that should appear on a certain page. In case any data is changed, the Memcached content is updated too, so the website visitors will never end up seeing outdated data. The Memcached platform is an excellent option for any site that entices lots of viewers, as it will make it faster than the blink of an eye and will enhance the overall user experience.
Memcached in Shared Website Hosting
Memcached comes as an upgrade with each shared website hosting
account that we are offering and in case you would like to use it for any script-driven site that you host on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform, you will be able to activate it in a few simple steps via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. During the process, you will be offered the option to upgrade two different features – the instances and the memory. The first one refers to the number of the sites that can use the Memcached caching system at the same time, so if you need it for several sites, you can get a handful of instances. The second one refers to the maximum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to use in order to cache information, so for plenty of sites (or for one resource-intensive site), you should get more memory for better performance. The memory comes in increments of 16 MB and more memory can be ordered at any moment. With the Memcached caching system, any script-driven site hosted on our cloud servers will load faster than the speed of light.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can get Memcached as an optional upgrade with all our Linux semi-dedicated hosting
and since it works with any script-based app, you can use it for any site that you host on our platform, regardless of what app you have used – Mambo, WordPress or Joomla™
, a custom-developed one, etc. You can order the upgrade via the respective section of the Hepsia Control Panel from which you manage your semi-dedicated server account, and you can select two separate features – the number of instances and the amount of memory that they will use. In other words, these things show the number of the Internet sites that will use the Memcached system and the total amount of system memory that the system will be able to use to cache your information. The two features are ordered separately for more flexibility and one instance does not come with a pre-defined amount of memory. You can take advantage of Memcached with any sort of site and both you and your visitors will swiftly detect the difference in the overall performance.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting
When you purchase any of our Linux dedicated servers hosting
and if you choose Hepsia as your website hosting Control Panel at signup, you will get the Memcached caching platform as standard and you can set it up for each Internet site that you host on the dedicated machine without upgrading or installing anything. It will start storing content as people open your website, so you will see the results of using it soon after that. The minimum amount of memory that will be available to the caching platform is 3 GB and naturally, the more powerful the dedicate server package, the more system memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will allow you to use the platform for multiple websites or for an extremely heavy Internet site without weakening its effectiveness. Memcached will enable you to increase the load speed of any database-powered website in no time – a Joomla™
portal, a WordPress personal diary, an OpenCart e-store, etcetera, and to boost the overall performance of your dedicated machine.
