Memcached is a data caching system, which has been gaining popularity lately thanks to its efficiency. It’s used to cache requests and replies between a database and the application that’s using it, which can boost the overall performance of your site and decrease the generated load considerably. Every time a web page on an application-driven Internet site is accessed, the application connects to the database and "asks" what info should be displayed, and then drags it. With Memcached, these procedures are skipped, since the platform has already cached all of the content that should appear on a specific webpage. When any content is modified, the Memcached content is updated too, so the site visitors will never see out-of-date data. The platform is an ideal solution for any Internet site that has plenty of visitors, as it will make it faster than the speed of sound and will enhance the user experience.
Memcached in Hosting
You can make use of the Memcached caching system with all hosting that we are offering. It is available as an optional upgrade, which you can enable with only a few mouse clicks from your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. It requires an extension, which is already installed on our cloud hosting platform, so you can begin using Memcached the moment you order it. The upgrade is divided into two parts, which will give you more versatility depending on the Internet sites that you’d like to use it for. The first one defines the number of the websites that will use the Memcached caching system, or the so-called ‘instances’, while the second one refers to the system memory, i.e. to how much content the system will be able to cache. You can get more memory in increments of 16 MB and the more memory you have ordered, the more data will be cached, which may be a pretty good idea for busy websites with large-size databases and lots of users. Thus, you can optimize the loading speed of every script-powered website hosted on our cloud servers without any efforts.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you decide to host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you can take advantage of Memcached with ease, as the distributed memory object caching platform’s activation requires a couple of clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia Control Panel. The PHP extension that it requires is already installed on our semi-dedicated servers, so you can start using Memcached the moment you add it to your account. You will be able to choose how many websites can use it and how much information it will cache, in other words – there are two different features that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the memory. You can get more of both, so if one of your sites becomes very busy, for example, you can always add more memory to it. Our system is stunningly flexible in this regard and we do not bind a particular number of instances to a pre-defined amount of memory. You can employ the Memcached platform to increase the speed of any script-powered Internet site, including those based on popular web applications, such as WordPress or Joomla.
Memcached in VPS Servers
Memcached is available by default with all VPS servers ordered with our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The extension it requires so as to function correctly is compiled when the VPS is configured, so you can begin using the distributed memory object caching platform once your brand-new server is fully operational. The system memory that Memcached can employ depends on the given plan, but even with the lower-end plans, you’ll get several hundred megabytes that will be at your disposal for this platform exclusively. This will allow you to boost the performance of multiple sites hosted on the VPS server simultaneously and to decrease the load on the virtual machine even if you’ve got regularly visited script-driven online portals with multiple users. The platform can be used with any script – Joomla, Drupal or Mambo, or a custom-built script, and you will distinguish the faster overall performance shortly after you begin using it.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers
Any dedicated server that’s ordered with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel comes with Memcached already installed by default, so you can start using the object caching system the moment the dedicated server is up and running, without the need to install or upgrade anything. The amount of memory that Memcached can employ depends on the dedicated server that you have selected, but since our servers are truly powerful and given the fact that it’s likely that you’ll host resource-requiring websites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the system can use is three gigabytes. This will enable you to accelerate the performance of very popular sites with no effort and you will see the difference shortly after the Memcached system starts caching database calls. You can take full advantage of the caching system with any database-powered portal, including those based on popular CMSs like WordPress and Joomla.
