A large number of users use Memcached to raise database performance. What actually is Memcached?
Memcached is an object caching system, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years because of its efficiency. It is used to cache calls and responses between a database and the app that’s using it, which can enhance the performance of your site and decrease the generated server load considerably. Every time a web page on an app-driven website is opened, the application connects to the database and "asks" what information should be shown, and then pulls it. With Memcached, these procedures are skipped, since the platform has already cached the content that should be shown on a particular web page. If any data is modified, the Memcached content is updated as well, so the site visitors will never end up seeing old content. The platform is a perfect option for any Internet site that draws numerous visitors, since it will make it faster than light and will improve the user experience.
Memcached in Shared Hosting
Memcached comes as an upgrade with each and every shared hosting
account offered by our company and in case you’d like to use it for any script-based site that you host on our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform, you will be able to activate it in a couple of easy steps through your Hepsia Control Panel. During the process, you’ll be offered the option to upgrade two separate features – the number of instances and the system memory. The first one has to do with the number of the Internet sites that can use Memcached at the same time, so if you need it for several sites, you can order a number of instances. The second one has to do with the maximum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to use to cache info, so for lots of websites (or for one resource-requiring site), you may want to order more memory for improved performance. The memory is available in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be added every time you need it. With Memcached, each script-powered Internet site hosted on our servers will open unbelievably fast.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you decide to host your sites in a semi-dedicated server
account, you will be able to take advantage of Memcached effortlessly, as the memory caching platform’s setup requires a couple of mouse clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The PHP extension that is required is pre-installed on our servers, so you can begin using the Memcached caching platform as soon as you add it to your account. You will be able to select how many Internet sites can use it and how much information can be cached, i.e. there are two separate upgradable features – the number of instances and the amount of memory. You can add more of both, so if one of your sites becomes extremely busy, for example, you can always add more memory to it. Our system is rather flexible in this regard and we don’t tie a given number of instances to a pre-defined amount of memory. You can employ the Memcached platform to increase the loading speed of any script-powered Internet site, including those that are based on famous web-based applications, such as Joomla™
Memcached in VPS Servers
Memcached is offered by default with every VPS server
offered by us on the condition that you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel, so you will not need to pay anything extra to be able to use the full capacity of this content caching system. The more powerful plan you pick, the more memory Memcached will have for content caching purposes, but you will have no less than several hundred megabytes all the time, which is much more than what you’d get with a shared hosting plan. This will permit you to use the Memcached caching system for lots of sites, irrespective of how large they are, which in turn means that you can use a low-end plan for them without overloading the Virtual Private Server. The Memcached caching system is perfect for script-powered software applications such as Joomla™
, OpenCart, WordPress or Mambo, and you can use it even with a custom-created app. Soon after you activate Memcached, it will begin storing information and you will see the optimized overall performance of your websites.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers
When you get any of our dedicated servers
and if you choose Hepsia as your web hosting Control Panel on the order page, you will get the Memcached memory caching platform as standard and you can set it up for any site that you host on the server without upgrading or installing anything. It will start caching data as users access your website, so you will see the effects of using it shortly thereafter. The minimum amount of system memory that will be available to the caching platform is 3 GB and normally, the more powerful the plan, the more memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will enable you to take advantage of the caching platform for numerous Internet sites or for an extremely popular website without compromising its efficiency. The Memcached caching platform will allow you to optimize the loading speed of any database-driven website very quickly – a Joomla™
portal, a WordPress online blog, an OpenCart web store, etcetera, and to enhance the performance of your dedicated machine.
