Memcached is a distributed memory object caching system, which has been gaining popularity lately thanks to its effectiveness. It’s used to cache requests and responses between a database and the app that’s using it, which can boost the overall performance of your Internet site and decrease the produced server load immensely. Every time a webpage on an application-driven website is opened, the application connects to the database and "asks" what information should be shown, and then fetches it. With Memcached, these steps are omitted, as the platform has already cached all the content that should be displayed on a particular web page. In case any data is changed, the Memcached content is updated as well, so the users will never see out-of-date content. The platform is an excellent choice for every Internet site that has plenty of viewers, as it will make it truly fast and will improve the user experience.
Memcached in Website Hosting
You can use the Memcached object caching system with all Linux website hosting offered by our company. It is available as an optional upgrade, which you can get with only a few clicks of the mouse from your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. It requires an extension, which is already installed on our cloud web hosting platform, so you can begin using Memcached once you order it. The upgrade is separated into two parts, which will give you more versatility depending on the sites that you would like to use it for. The first one defines the number of the sites that will use Memcached, or the ‘instances’, while the second one refers to the system memory, i.e. to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can add more memory in increments of 16 MB and the more memory you have, the more data will be cached, which may be a pretty good idea for heavy-traffic sites with large-size databases and plenty of concurrent visitors. In this way, you can accelerate the overall performance of any script-based website hosted on our cloud servers with no effort.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can add the Memcached object caching platform to any of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages that we are offering and use its full capacity for any script-powered site hosted by us. The upgrade is offered through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can select two things – the number of instances and the memory. These things indicate how many sites can use Memcached and how much memory it will use to cache your content. You can select them independently, since one instance is not tied to a specific amount of memory, so you can use a lot of memory for one resource-intensive Internet site, for example. This upgrade comes in increments of 16 MB and you can get as much memory as you need. The Memcached platform can be used with any script-powered website regardless of its nature, including those that are based on widespread software applications like Joomla, WordPress or Drupal, and plenty of companies such as Zynga and Wikipedia are already using it to improve the speed of their sites.
Memcached in Dedicated Hosting
Each dedicated server that’s ordered with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel comes with Memcached already installed by default, so you can start using this content caching system the moment the server is fully ready, without needing to upgrade or activate anything. The amount of system memory that Memcached can use depends on the server that you’ve picked, but as our servers are quite powerful and given the fact that it’s likely that you will host resource-demanding Internet sites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the caching system can use will be three gigabytes. This will permit you to improve the performance of very large Internet sites without effort and you’ll observe the difference shortly after the Memcached caching system begins caching database requests. You can take full advantage of the Memcached caching system with any database-driven online portal, including those based on popular Content Management Systems like WordPress and Joomla.
