Memcached is a content caching system, which has been gaining popularity lately because of its effectiveness. It’s used to cache requests and responses between a database and the app that is using it, which can increase the performance of your site and reduce the created load drastically. Every time a webpage on an app-driven site is accessed, the app connects to the database and "asks" what information should be displayed, and then extracts it. With Memcached, these steps are skipped, as the platform has already cached all of the content that should be shown on a specific page. When any data is edited, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the site visitors will never end up seeing old data. The platform is an ideal choice for any website that has lots of viewers, as it will make it extremely fast and will improve the overall user experience.
Memcached in Website Hosting
You can make use of the Memcached caching system with all Linux website hosting packages that we are offering. It is available as an upgrade, which you can add with just a few clicks of the mouse through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It needs an extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud hosting platform, so you can begin using the Memcached caching system as soon as you add it. The upgrade is divided into two parts, which will give you more flexibility depending on the Internet sites that you’d like to use it for. The first part concerns the number of the sites that will use Memcached, or the ‘instances’, while the second one is related to the system memory, i.e. to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can order more memory in increments of 16 MB and the more memory you’ve added, the more content will be cached, which may be a rather good idea for high-demand sites with very large databases and lots of visitors. In this way, you can improve the performance of any script-driven site hosted on our servers without any effort.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you purchase any of our semi-dedicated server packages, you will find Memcached as an optional feature in the Upgrades part of your Hepsia Control Panel, so if you’d like to use it for any of the sites hosted in the semi-dedicated server hosting account, you can add it with just a couple of clicks of the mouse. The distributed memory caching platform is ideal for any script-powered application like Joomla, WordPress, or even an in-house built one, and depending on your necessities, you will be able to select two different features – how many Internet sites will use the Memcached platform, in other words – the number of instances; and how much data will be stored, i.e. the amount of memory that the platform will employ. The two features are not bound to each other, so if you run a traffic-consuming site with lots of content, you can get one instance and a larger amount of memory. Memcached will increase the overall performance of your websites shortly after you enable it and both you and your site visitors will enjoy better load times.
Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting
Each dedicated server that’s ordered with our Hepsia Control Panel comes with Memcached pre-installed by default, so you can start using the data caching system once the dedicated server is fully ready, without needing to install or upgrade anything. The amount of memory that Memcached can employ depends on the very server that you have chosen, but as our servers are unbelievably powerful and due to the fact that it’s likely that you will host resource-heavy websites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the system can use is 3 GB. This will enable you to boost the overall performance of very large Internet sites without effort and you will notice the difference shortly after Memcached begins caching database queries. You can make full use of the Memcached system with any database-driven web portal, including those that are based on widely used CMSs such as Joomla and WordPress.
