Memcached is a caching system, which has been gaining in popularity lately because of its efficiency. It is used to cache calls and replies between a database and the app that uses it, which can enhance the overall performance of your site and decrease the created load significantly. Every time a web page on an app-driven Internet site is accessed, the app connects to the database and "asks" what info should be displayed, and then extracts it. With Memcached, these steps are omitted, since the platform has already cached all of the content that should show up on a particular page. If any content is changed, the Memcached content is updated too, so the site visitors will never end up seeing old data. Memcached is an excellent option for any Internet site that lures numerous viewers, as it will make it truly fast and will enhance the user experience.
Memcached in Shared Website Hosting
Memcached comes as an upgrade with each shared website hosting plan offered by our company and in case you wish to use it for any script-powered website that you host on our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform, you’ll be able to add it in several simple steps through your Hepsia Control Panel. During the process, you’ll get the option to upgrade two separate features – the number of instances and the system memory. The first one has to do with the number of the websites that can use the Memcached content caching system simultaneously, so if you need it for several sites, you can order a handful of instances. The second one refers to the total amount of memory that Memcached will be able to use to cache information, so for a lot of websites (or for one frequently visited site), you should get more memory for better performance. The memory is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be added every time you need it. With the Memcached caching system, every script-driven website hosted on our servers will open amazingly fast.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can add the Memcached content caching platform to any of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting offered by us and use its full capacity for any script-driven website hosted on our servers. The upgrade is offered through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can select two things – the number of instances and the amount of system memory. These things indicate how many sites can use Memcached and how much system memory it will use to store your data. You can choose them separately, since one instance is not tied to a particular amount of system memory, so you can use lots of memory for one traffic-heavy Internet site, for example. This feature is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order as much memory as you wish. The platform can be used with any script-driven website regardless of its nature, including those based on widely used Internet applications like Drupal, WordPress or Joomla, and lots of companies like Wikipedia and Zynga are already using it to boost the speed of their sites.
Memcached in VPS Web Hosting
Memcached comes by default with all VPS web hosting that are ordered with our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The PHP extension it needs to perform correctly is compiled when the VPS server is set up, so you can begin using the memory caching platform as soon as your brand new server is completely ready. The memory that the Memcached platform can use depends on the particular Virtual Private Server plan, but even with the low-end plans, several hundred megabytes will be at your disposal for this platform exclusively. This will allow you to improve the overall performance of numerous sites hosted on the server at the same time and to reduce the load on the machine even if you’ve got content-rich script-driven portals with plenty of viewers. The platform can be used with any script – Mambo, Drupal or Joomla, or a custom-made script, and you will notice the better performance shortly after you start using it.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting
If you acquire any of our dedicated servers hosting and if you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel at signup, you’ll get the Memcached platform as standard and you can use it with each website that you host on your server without upgrading or installing anything. It will start caching content as people access your site, so you’ll notice the effects of using it shortly thereafter. The minimum amount of memory that will be available to the Memcached caching platform is three gigabytes and naturally, the more powerful the dedicate server package, the more system memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will enable you to use the caching platform for multiple sites or for a very heavy website without compromising its efficacy. The Memcached caching platform will enable you to accelerate the loading speed of any database-powered website very quickly – a Joomla portal, a WordPress personal diary, an OpenCart e-shop, etcetera, and to improve the performance of your server.
