Memcached is a distributed memory object caching system, which has been gaining popularity in recent years because of its effectiveness. It’s used to cache requests and replies between a database and the app that’s using it, which can boost the performance of your Internet site and decrease the produced load greatly. Every time a web page on an application-driven website is visited, the application connects to the database and "asks" what information should be shown, and then extracts it. With Memcached, these steps are omitted, as the platform has already cached the content that should show up on a particular web page. When any data is edited, the Memcached content is updated as well, so the website visitors will never see old content. The platform is an ideal solution for every website that lures plenty of visitors, as it will make it extra-fast and will improve the user experience.
Memcached in Cloud Hosting
The Memcached data caching system is offered as an upgrade with every Linux cloud hosting that we are offering and you can begin using it as soon as you order it, as the extension that it requires in order to work correctly is already present on our advanced cloud platform. You can request the upgrade from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with each and every shared web hosting plan and a brand new Control Panel section where you can administer Memcached will show up. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts – the instances and the memory, so as to offer you more flexibility. The first one shows the number of the Internet sites which can use the Memcached caching system, whereas the second one, which comes in increments of 16 MB, determines the maximum size of the content that the system can cache. A traffic-heavy Internet site with a large database may require more memory in order to take an even greater advantage of the Memcached caching system, so in case you’d like to upgrade this service, you will be able to do it at any moment with several clicks of the mouse.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can get the Memcached data caching system as an optional upgrade with all our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages and since it works with any script-driven application, you can use it for any site that you host on our platform, irrespective of what application you have used – Joomla, WordPress or Mambo, a custom-created app, etc. You can request the upgrade from the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel from which you administer your semi-dedicated account, and you can select two different features – the instances and the amount of memory that they will use. In simple terms, these things show how many websites will use the Memcached system and how much system memory the system will be able to use in order to store your data. The two things are ordered separately for more flexibility and one instance does not come with a particular amount of memory. You can take advantage of Memcached with any kind of site and both you and your visitors will swiftly spot the difference in the performance.
Memcached in VPS
Memcached comes by default with all Linux VPS packages that are ordered with our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel. The extension it needs in order to perform properly is compiled when the server is configured, so you can begin using the caching platform as soon as your new VPS is ready. The memory that the Memcached platform can use depends on the particular VPS plan, but even with the low-end ones, you’ll get several hundred megabytes that will be at your disposal for this platform exclusively. This will allow you to improve the overall performance of numerous sites hosted on the virtual server at the same time and to lower the load even if you run data-heavy script-powered portals with lots of viewers. The platform can be used with any script – Mambo, Joomla or Drupal, or a custom-developed script, and you will see the better overall performance shortly after you start using it.
Memcached in Dedicated Hosting
When you buy one of our dedicated servers hosting packages and if you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel on the order page, you’ll get the Memcached data caching platform by default and you can use it with any Internet site that you host on the server without installing or upgrading anything. It will begin storing information as users access your website, so you will notice the effects of using it soon thereafter. The minimum amount of memory that will be available to the caching platform is 3 gigabytes and naturally, the more powerful the dedicate server plan, the more system memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will enable you to use the platform for a lot of sites or for a very busy Internet site without weakening its efficiency. The Memcached platform will enable you to enhance the speed of any database-powered site in no time – a Joomla portal, a WordPress online blog, an OpenCart web shop, etc., and to boost the performance of your dedicated machine.
