Memcached is a content caching platform, which has been gaining popularity in recent years owing 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 performance of your Internet site and lessen the created server load significantly. Every time a web page on an app-driven site is opened, the app connects to the database and "asks" what information should be displayed, and then pulls it. With Memcached, these steps are omitted, since the platform has already cached all the content that should appear on a given page. In case any data is updated, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ too, so the visitors will never see out-of-date data. The Memcached platform is an ideal choice for every site that lures a lot of visitors, as it will make it astonishingly fast and will improve the user experience.
Memcached in Web Hosting
You can take advantage of the Memcached content caching system with all web hosting service that we offer. It’s offered as an upgrade, which you can obtain with only a few mouse clicks from your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. It requires an extension, which is already installed on our cloud website hosting platform, so you can begin using Memcached once you order it. The upgrade is separated into two parts, which will give you more flexibility depending on the Internet sites that you wish to use it for. The first one reveals the number of the websites that will use Memcached, or the so-called ‘instances’, whereas the second one is related to the memory, i.e. to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can order more memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you have added, the more data will be cached, which may be a good idea for frequently visited sites with large-size databases and many visitors. Thus, you can accelerate the overall performance of every script-driven site hosted on our servers with ease.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can add the Memcached memory caching platform to any of the Linux semi-dedicated servers offered by us and use its full capacity for any script-driven website hosted by us. The upgrade is available through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can select two features – the number of instances and the amount of system memory. These things define how many websites can use the Memcached caching platform and how much memory it will use to cache your information. You can choose them independently, since a given instance is not bound to a fixed amount of system memory, so you can use plenty of memory for a single resource-heavy website, for instance. This feature is offered in increments of 16 MB and you can get as much memory as you need. The Memcached platform can be used with any script-driven site regardless of its type, including those based on widespread Internet apps like Joomla, WordPress or Drupal, and lots of companies like Zynga and Wikipedia are already using it to boost the loading speed of their websites.
Memcached in VPS Servers
Memcached comes as standard with all Linux VPS servers ordered with our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel. The extension it needs to work correctly is compiled when the server is configured, so you can start using the memory caching platform once your brand new VPS is up and running. The system memory that the Memcached platform can use depends on the given VPS plan, but even with the less powerful ones, you will get several hundred megabytes that will be at your disposal exclusively for this platform. This will allow you to accelerate the performance of numerous websites hosted on the VPS simultaneously and to decrease the load even if you run traffic-consuming script-based websites with numerous users. The caching platform can be used with any script – Mambo, Drupal or Joomla, or a custom-developed script, and you will distinguish the better overall performance soon after you start using it.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers
Any dedicated server ordered with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel comes with Memcached pre-installed by default, so you can begin using the data caching system the moment the dedicated server is fully functional, without needing to activate or upgrade anything. The amount of system memory that Memcached can employ depends on the server that you have selected, but as our servers are unbelievably powerful and considering the fact that it’s likely that you’ll host resource-hungry sites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the system can use will be three gigabytes. This will enable you to boost the performance of very busy sites without effort and you will notice the difference soon after the Memcached caching system starts caching database calls. You can make use of the Memcached caching system with any database-powered site, including those that are based on popular Content Management Systems like Joomla and WordPress.
