Memcached is an object caching system, which has been gaining in popularity lately because of its efficiency. It is used to cache calls and replies between a database and the app that’s using it, which can improve the performance of your Internet site and decrease the created server load drastically. Anytime a webpage on an app-driven Internet site is accessed, the app connects to the database and "asks" what information should be displayed, and then fetches it. With Memcached, these procedures are skipped, as the platform has already cached all the content that should be displayed on a given page. When any data is modified, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the users will never end up seeing old content. Memcached is an excellent choice for every Internet site that attracts plenty of viewers, since it will make it extremely fast and will enhance the user experience.
Memcached in Cloud Hosting
If you host script-powered websites in a cloud hosting account with us, you will be able to add the Memcached memory caching system to your plan with just a few clicks through your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available momentarily and, since the required PHP extension is already installed on our innovative cloud hosting platform, you can begin using it right away. To give you more versatility, we offer two separate upgrades related to the number of instances (in other words – how many sites will use Memcached) and to the memory that the Memcached caching system will use. The latter comes in increments of 16 megabytes and you can add memory as many times as you need. Naturally, the more memory the Memcached caching system is allowed to use, the more content it will cache, so if you manage a traffic-consuming site with lots of data, you may need more memory so as to be able to make full use of the power that Memcached can offer you.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can add the Memcached data caching platform to any of the semi-dedicated servers that we offer and make use of its full capacity for any script-driven Internet site hosted on our servers. The upgrade is available through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can choose two features – the number of instances and the system memory. These things indicate how many sites can use the Memcached caching platform and how much memory it will use to store your info. You can choose them separately, since one instance is not bound to a fixed amount of system memory, so you can use a lot of memory for a single resource-intensive Internet site, for example. This feature comes in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order as much memory as you wish. The Memcached platform can be used with any script-powered website regardless of its nature, including those based on widely used web apps like Joomla, WordPress or Drupal, and a lot of companies like Wikipedia and Zynga are already using it to increase the overall performance of their sites.
Memcached in VPS Servers
When you order a VPS server from our company, you will be able to use Memcached at no extra cost, as the data caching platform comes with all virtual servers ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Even if you own popular websites, you will be able to optimize their performance effortlessly and the lowered load on the VPS server will enable you to keep your current VPS hosting package instead of upgrading to a more powerful one. The amount of system memory that the Memcached platform can use to store content depends on the plan that you are using, but even with a low-end one, you will have no less than several hundred MB, which is considerably more than what you’d get with a shared plan, so the website performance boost will be great. You can use Memcached with any database-driven app, no matter if you’ve built it on your own or you are using a ready-to-use one like OpenCart, WordPress or Joomla.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers
Each dedicated server ordered with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel comes with Memcached pre-installed by default, so you can start using this memory caching system once the server is completely operational, without having to activate or upgrade anything. The amount of memory that Memcached can employ depends on the very server that you have picked, but as our servers are really powerful and considering the fact that it is likely that you’ll host resource-consuming sites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the system can use will be three gigabytes. This will enable you to boost the overall performance of extremely popular websites effortlessly and you will see the difference soon after the Memcached caching system begins caching database queries. You can make use of the system with any database-driven portal, including those that are based on famous CMSs such as WordPress and Joomla.
