Memcached is a distributed memory object caching system, which has been gaining popularity lately due to its effectiveness. It’s used to cache queries and replies between a database and the application that uses it, which can boost the performance of your site and lessen the created server load substantially. Anytime a page on an application-powered Internet site is visited, the application connects to the database and "asks" what info should be displayed, and then fetches it. With Memcached, these steps are omitted, since the platform has already cached the content that should appear on a certain webpage. When any data is modified, the Memcached content is updated as well, so the website visitors will never see out-of-date data. The Memcached platform is an ideal choice for every Internet site that draws plenty of viewers, since it will make it astonishingly fast and will enhance the user experience.
Memcached in Shared Web Hosting
Memcached comes as an optional upgrade with each and every shared web hosting plan that we offer and you’ll be able to start using it once you add it, as the extension that it requires so as to work correctly is pre-installed on our avant-garde cloud website hosting platform. You can request the upgrade from the Hepsia Control Panel, which is available with each and every hosting package and a brand-new Control Panel section where you can administer Memcached will show up. The upgrade is separated into two parts – the number of instances and the memory, so as to offer you more versatility. The first one refers to the number of the websites that can use the Memcached caching system, while the second, which comes in increments of 16 megabytes, defines the total size of the content that the system can cache. A popular website with a large-size database may require more memory to take an even bigger advantage of the Memcached caching system, so if you want to upgrade this feature, you’ll be able to do it at any point with a few mouse clicks.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you choose to host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account, you can take advantage of Memcached with ease, since the distributed memory object caching platform’s setup requires a couple of mouse clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. The PHP extension that it requires is pre-installed on our semi-dedicated servers, so you can begin using the Memcached platform as soon as you add it to your account. You will be able to select how many Internet sites can use it and how much content it will cache, in other words – there are two different upgradable features – the instances and the amount of system memory. You can add more of both, so if one of your sites becomes very busy, for instance, you can always get more memory. Our system is extremely flexible in this regard and we don’t tie a given number of instances to a pre-defined amount of memory. You can take advantage of the Memcached platform to speed up any script-powered website, including those based on widely used applications, such as WordPress or Joomla.
Memcached in VPS Servers
When you obtain a VPS server from us, you’ll be able to use Memcached at no extra charge, as the memory caching platform is available with all VPS servers that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. Even if you manage resource-consuming Internet sites, you will be able to boost their performance with no effort and the reduced load on the Virtual Private Server will allow you to keep your current plan instead of moving to a more powerful one. The amount of system memory that Memcached can use to store info depends on the package that you are using, but even with a low-end one, you will get at least several hundred MB, which is considerably more than what you’d get with a shared hosting package, so the website performance boost will be enormous. You can take advantage of Memcached with any database-driven app, irrespective of whether you have built it on your own or you’re using a ready-for-use one such as WordPress, Joomla or OpenCart.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers
Each dedicated server that’s ordered with our Hepsia Control Panel comes with Memcached already installed by default, so you can start using the caching system the moment your dedicated server is completely operational, without the need to install or upgrade anything. The amount of memory that Memcached can use depends on the dedicated server that you have selected, but since our servers are exceptionally powerful and due to the fact that it’s likely that you’ll host resource-heavy Internet sites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the caching system can use will be three gigabytes. This will permit you to increase the overall performance of very heavy Internet sites without efforts and you’ll note the difference shortly after the Memcached system begins caching database queries. You can use the system with any database-powered web portal, including those based on widely used CMSs such as WordPress and Joomla.
