Memcached is a content caching platform, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years thanks to its effectiveness. It is used to cache calls and responses between a database and the app that is using it, which can boost the overall performance of your Internet site and decrease the produced server load substantially. Anytime a webpage on an app-driven site is accessed, the app connects to the database and "asks" what information should be shown, and then extracts it. With Memcached, these steps are skipped, as the platform has already cached all the content that should be shown on a given web page. When any data is modified, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ too, so the website visitors will never end up seeing out-of-date content. The Memcached platform is an ideal solution for every website that lures numerous viewers, since it will make it faster than the blink of an eye and will enhance the overall user experience.
Memcached in Cloud Hosting
Memcached comes as an optional upgrade with each and every cloud hosting
account that we are offering and if you want to use it for any script-based website that you host on our avant-garde cloud platform, you will be able to enable it in a few simple steps via your Hepsia Control Panel. During the process, you will be offered the option to upgrade two separate things – the instances and the system memory. The first one is related to the number of the sites that can use the Memcached distributed memory object caching system simultaneously, so if you need it for several sites, you can order a handful of instances. The second one has to do with the maximum amount of memory that the system will be allowed to use to cache information, so for many websites (or for one single frequently visited site), you should order more memory for improved performance. The memory is offered in increments of 16 MB and more memory can be added at any time. With Memcached, every script-based Internet site hosted on our cloud servers will open incredibly fast.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can add the Memcached object caching platform to any of the Linux semi-dedicated plans
that we’re offering and use its full potential for any script-driven site hosted on our servers. The upgrade is available through the Hepsia Control Panel and you can select two things – the instances and the amount of memory. These things determine the number of the websites that can use Memcached and the amount of memory that it will use to cache your info. You can choose them independently, since a given instance is not tied to a specific amount of memory, so you can use lots of memory for one large-sized site, for instance. This upgrade is available in increments of 16 MB and you can get as much memory as you want. The platform can be used with any script-driven site regardless of its type, including those based on popular software apps like WordPress, Drupal™
, and plenty of companies like Wikipedia and Zynga are already using it to improve the performance of their sites.
Memcached in VPS Servers
When you get a VPS server
from us, you will be able to use Memcached at no additional fee, as the object caching platform comes with all servers that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Even if you have resource-intensive websites, you’ll be able to improve their performance with ease and the reduced load on your virtual machine will permit you to keep using your current Virtual Private Server package instead of migrating to a more powerful one. The amount of system memory that the Memcached caching platform can use to cache content depends on the plan that you are using, but even with a lower-end one, you’ll get at least several hundred MB, which is considerably more than the amount of memory you’d get with a shared web hosting plan, so the website performance boost will be enormous. You can take advantage of Memcached with any database-driven web application, no matter if you’ve developed it on your own or you’re using a ready-for-use one like Joomla™
, OpenCart or WordPress.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers
If you get one of our Linux dedicated web hosting plans
and if you select Hepsia as your web hosting Control Panel during the order process, you’ll get Memcached by default and you can use it with each website that you host on your dedicated machine without upgrading or installing anything. It will start caching info as users visit your Internet site, so you will detect the result 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 plan, the more memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will permit you to use the platform for lots of sites or for a very popular Internet site without weakening its effectiveness. The Memcached caching platform will permit you to boost the loading speed of any database-driven site very quickly – a Joomla™
portal, a WordPress online blog, an OpenCart e-shop, etc., and to enhance the overall performance of your dedicated machine.
