Memcached is a caching system, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years because of its efficiency. It’s used to cache requests and replies between a database and the app that is using it, which can enhance the performance of your website and lessen the produced load substantially. Every time a webpage on an app-driven website is opened, the application connects to the database and "asks" what information should be displayed, and then fetches it. With Memcached, these procedures are skipped, since the platform has already cached all the content that should appear on a particular page. If any content is updated, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ too, so the users will never end up seeing outdated content. Memcached is an excellent solution for any Internet site that has numerous viewers, since it will boost its loading speed and will enhance the user experience.
Memcached in Web Hosting
Memcached comes as an optional upgrade with each and every web hosting package that we are offering and in case you want to use it for any script-powered Internet site that you host on our avant-garde cloud hosting platform, you will be able to order it in a few easy steps through your Hepsia Control Panel. During the process, you’ll be given the option to upgrade two separate things – the instances and the system memory. The first one has to do with the number of the sites that can use the Memcached memory caching system simultaneously, so if you need it for several Internet sites, you can get a number of instances. The second one has to do with the maximum amount of memory that the system will be permitted to use to cache content, so for numerous websites (or for one large-sized site), you’d better order more memory for better results. The memory is offered in increments of 16 MB and more memory can be ordered at any time. With Memcached, each script-powered Internet site hosted on our cloud servers will load amazingly fast.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can add the Memcached content caching platform to any of the semi-dedicated hosting service offered by our company and make use of its full capacity for any script-driven site hosted on our servers. The upgrade is available through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can choose two things – the instances and the memory. These things define how many sites can use the Memcached platform and the amount of memory that it will use to store your info. You can select them independently, since one instance is not bound to a particular amount of memory, so you can use plenty of memory for one resource-hungry site, for example. This feature comes in increments of 16 MB and you can get as much memory as you wish. The platform can be used with any script-powered site irrespective of its nature, including those that are based on widespread software applications like Joomla, WordPress or Drupal, and a lot of companies such as Zynga and Wikipedia are already using it to increase the overall performance of their sites.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers
If you order any of our Linux dedicated servers and if you select Hepsia as your website hosting Control Panel during the order process, you’ll get the Memcached platform as standard and you can use it with each site that you host on your dedicated machine without installing or upgrading anything. It will begin caching data as people access your site, so you’ll detect the effects of using it soon after that. The minimum amount of system memory that will be available to the Memcached platform is 3 gigabytes and normally, the more powerful the plan, the more memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will enable you to take advantage of the caching platform for plenty of sites or for an extremely popular Internet site without weakening its effectiveness. The Memcached platform will enable you to accelerate the load speed of any database-powered Internet site very quickly – a Joomla portal, a WordPress weblog, an OpenCart e-store, etcetera, and to optimize the overall performance of your dedicated machine.
