Memcached is a caching system, which has been gaining popularity in recent years thanks to its effectiveness. It is used to cache calls and responses between a database and the application that uses it, which can enhance the performance of your website and decrease the generated server load considerably. Anytime a webpage on an application-driven Internet site is visited, the application connects to the database and "asks" what info should be shown, and then extracts it. With Memcached, these procedures are skipped, since the platform has already cached all of the content that should show up on a certain page. When any data is edited, the Memcached content is updated too, so the website visitors will never see out-of-date data. Memcached is a perfect option for any website that lures many viewers, as it will make it faster than the speed of light and will improve the overall user experience.
Memcached in Cloud Website Hosting
You can make use of the Memcached data caching system with all Linux cloud website hosting service offered by our company. It is offered as an optional upgrade, which you can acquire with only a few clicks of the mouse through your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. It needs an extension, which is already installed on our cloud hosting platform, so you can start using the Memcached caching system the moment you order it. The upgrade is separated into two parts, which will offer you more flexibility depending on the Internet sites that you want to use it for. The first part determines the number of the sites that will use Memcached, or the so-called ‘instances’, while the second one is related to the system memory, i.e. to how much content the system will be able to cache. You can add more system memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you’ve ordered, the more content will be cached, which may be a very good idea for popular sites with large-sized databases and lots of visitors. Thus, you can enhance the overall performance of every script-driven Internet site hosted on our cloud servers without any effort.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you choose to host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to take advantage of Memcached effortlessly, since the memory caching platform’s setup takes several mouse clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. The required extension is already installed on our servers, so you can start using Memcached as soon as you add it to your semi-dedicated server account. You’ll be able to select how many Internet sites can use it and how much info can be cached, in other words – there are two separate features that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the amount of memory. You can get more of both, so if one of your sites becomes very popular, for instance, you can always order more memory. Our system is unbelievably flexible in this regard and we don’t bind a given number of instances to a fixed amount of memory. You can employ the Memcached platform to increase the speed of any script-powered Internet site, including those that are based on famous web-based apps, such as Joomla or WordPress.
Memcached in VPS Servers
Memcached is available by default with all Linux VPS servers that are ordered with our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel. The PHP extension it needs in order to function properly is compiled when the virtual server is configured, so you can begin using the data caching platform the moment your brand new VPS is completely ready. The memory that the Memcached platform can employ depends on the given VPS plan, but even with the lower-end plans, you’ll get several hundred megabytes that will be at your disposal exclusively for this platform. This will permit you to optimize the performance of numerous websites hosted on the virtual server simultaneously and to reduce the load on the virtual machine even if you manage resource-requiring script-based portals with multiple users. The platform can be used with any script – Mambo, Joomla or Drupal, or a custom-developed script, and you’ll see the better overall performance shortly after you start using it.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers
If you acquire one of our Linux dedicated servers and if you select Hepsia as your web hosting Control Panel during the order process, you’ll get the Memcached content caching platform by default and you can enable it for any site that you host on your dedicated server without upgrading or installing anything. It will start caching content as users access your Internet site, so you’ll notice the effects of using it shortly after that. The minimum amount of memory that will be available to the caching platform is 3 GB and naturally, the more powerful the dedicate server plan, the more memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will allow you to use the platform for many sites or for a very large site without compromising its efficacy. Memcached will enable you to boost the loading speed of any database-driven Internet site very quickly – a Joomla portal, a WordPress personal blog, an OpenCart web store, etc., and to optimize the performance of your server.
