Memcached is a distributed memory caching system, which has been gaining popularity in recent years thanks to its efficiency. It’s used to cache requests and replies between a database and the app that is using it, which can enhance the overall performance of your Internet site and decrease the generated load considerably. Every time a page on an app-driven website is accessed, the app connects to the database and "asks" what info should be displayed, and then fetches it. With Memcached, these steps are omitted, as the platform has already cached the content that should be displayed on a specific web page. When any data is updated, the Memcached content is updated too, so the visitors will never end up seeing outdated content. The Memcached platform is a perfect option for every website that entices a lot of viewers, as it will make it really fast and will enhance the user experience.
Memcached in Web Hosting
You can use Memcached with all web hosting offered by our company. It is offered as an upgrade, which you can activate with only a couple of clicks from your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. It requires an extension, which is already installed on our cloud website hosting platform, so you can start using the Memcached caching system as soon as you add it. The upgrade is divided into two parts, which will give you more freedom depending on the sites that you wish to use it for. The first part shows the number of the Internet sites that will use the Memcached caching system, or the ‘instances’, while the second one is related to the memory, in other words – to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can get more system memory in increments of 16 MB and the more memory you have ordered, the more content will be cached, which may be a quite good idea for busy sites with large-sized databases and lots of concurrent visitors. Thus, you can supercharge the overall performance of every script-based site hosted on our servers with no effort.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can add the Memcached content caching platform to any of the semi-dedicated servers that we are offering and use its full capacity for any script-driven website hosted by us. The upgrade is offered through the Hepsia Control Panel and you can select two things – the instances and the system memory. These things show the number of the websites that can use the Memcached platform and how much memory it will use to cache your info. You can choose them separately, since one instance is not linked to a fixed amount of system memory, so you can use lots of memory for a single large-sized website, for instance. This feature comes in increments of 16 MB and you can order as much memory as you like. The Memcached platform can be used with any script-powered site irrespective of its nature, including those based on widespread apps like WordPress, Drupal or Joomla, and lots of companies like Wikipedia and Zynga are already using it to accelerate the performance of their websites.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers
When you acquire one of our dedicated servers and if you choose Hepsia as your web hosting Control Panel at signup, you will get the Memcached caching platform as standard and you can set it up for any website that you host on the dedicated machine without installing or upgrading anything. It will start storing data as people open your website, so you will detect the effects of using it shortly thereafter. The minimum amount of system memory that will be available to the platform is three gigabytes and normally, the more powerful the dedicated plan, the more system memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will enable you to use the platform for numerous sites or for an extremely heavy website without weakening its efficiency. Memcached will permit you to increase the speed of any database-powered site in no time – a Joomla portal, a WordPress weblog, an OpenCart e-store, etc., and to boost the overall performance of your dedicated server.
