Memcached is an object caching system, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years thanks to its efficiency. It is used to cache queries and responses between a database and the application that is using it, which can accelerate the performance of your site and reduce the generated server load drastically. Every time a webpage on an app-driven website is opened, the application connects to the database and "asks" what info should be shown, and then pulls it. With Memcached, these steps are skipped, since the platform has already cached the content that should show up on a particular web page. In case any content is modified, the Memcached content is updated too, so the site visitors will never end up seeing old data. The platform is a perfect option for every Internet site that draws numerous viewers, as it will accelerate it and will improve the user experience.
Memcached in Website Hosting
You can use the Memcached memory caching system with all Linux website hosting offered by us. It is available as an optional upgrade, which you can order with just a few clicks through your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. It requires an extension, which is already installed on our cloud web hosting platform, so you can begin using the Memcached caching system the moment you add it. The upgrade is separated into two parts, which will give you more versatility depending on the sites that you’d like to use it for. The first one shows the number of the websites that will use Memcached, or the so-called ‘instances’, whereas the second one refers to the memory, in other words – to how much content the system will be able to cache. You can add more memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you have, the more content will be cached, which may be a rather good idea for traffic-heavy websites with very large databases and many simultaneous visitors. Thus, you can optimize the loading speed of every script-based website hosted on our servers without any effort.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you purchase any of our semi-dedicated server plans, you will find Memcached as an optional feature in the Upgrades section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so if you want to use it for any of the websites hosted in your account, you can enable it with just a couple of clicks of the mouse. The distributed memory object caching platform is perfect for any script-based app like WordPress, Joomla, or even a custom application, and depending on your requirements, you will be able to choose two separate things – how many websites will use the Memcached caching platform, i.e. the number of instances; and how much data will be cached, i.e. the amount of system memory that the platform will employ. The two things are not bound to each other, so if you’ve got a popular website with lots of data, you can order one instance and a large amount of memory. Memcached will boost the overall performance of your Internet sites shortly after you activate it and both you and your visitors will enjoy much faster loading times.
Memcached in VPS Hosting
When you order a virtual private server from our company, you’ll be able to use Memcached at no extra fee, as the platform is available with all VPS servers ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Even if you’ve got data-heavy websites, you’ll be able to optimize their performance with no effort and the decreased load on the VPS will allow you to keep your current package rather than switching to a more powerful one. The amount of memory that the Memcached caching platform can use to store information depends on the plan that you are using, but even with a low-end one, you’ll get at least several hundred megabytes, which is considerably more than what you’d get with a shared package, so the website performance boost will be significant. You can take advantage of Memcached with any database-powered web application, no matter if you have built it on your own or you are using a ready-made one such as WordPress, Joomla or OpenCart.
Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting
When you obtain one of our Linux dedicated web hosting and if you select Hepsia as your website hosting Control Panel on the order form, you will get the Memcached object caching platform by default and you can use it with any Internet site that you host on your dedicated server without installing or upgrading anything. It will start storing information as people visit your website, so you’ll detect the effect of using it soon after that. The minimum amount of memory that will be available to the caching platform is 3 GB and normally, the more powerful the dedicated plan, the more system memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will permit you to use the platform for lots of Internet sites or for an extremely heavy website without weakening its efficiency. Memcached will enable you to boost the loading speed of any database-driven Internet site very quickly – a Joomla portal, a WordPress online journal, an OpenCart web shop, etc., and to boost the performance of your dedicated server.
