Memcached is a distributed memory caching platform, which has been gaining popularity lately because of its efficiency. It’s used to cache requests and replies between a database and the app that is using it, which can boost the performance of your site and decrease the created server load significantly. Every time a webpage on an app-driven site is accessed, the app connects to the database and "asks" what info should be shown, and then extracts it. With Memcached, these steps are omitted, as the platform has already cached all of the content that should show up on a specific web page. In case any content is changed, the Memcached content is updated as well, so the site visitors will never see out-of-date data. The Memcached platform is an ideal choice for every website that lures a lot of viewers, since it will make it open much faster and will improve the overall user experience.
Memcached in Cloud Hosting
Memcached is available as an optional upgrade with each and every cloud hosting account offered by our company and if you’d like to use it for any script-driven website that you host on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform, you’ll be able to order it in a few easy steps via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. In the meantime, you will be offered the option to upgrade two separate features – the instances and the memory. The first one has to do with the number of the sites that can use the Memcached content caching system at the same time, so if you need it for several Internet sites, you can get a handful of instances. The second one has to do with the maximum amount of memory that Memcached will be allowed to use to cache info, so for plenty of sites (or for one single resource-requiring site), you’d better get more memory for better results. The memory comes in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be added every time you need it. With Memcached, each script-driven Internet site hosted on our servers will open lightning-fast.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you decide to host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to take advantage of Memcached with ease, since the data caching platform’s activation requires several mouse clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. The extension that it requires is already installed on our servers, so you can begin using the Memcached caching platform as soon as you add it to your account. You’ll be able to select how many sites can use it and how much data can be cached, i.e. there are two different features that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the amount of memory. You can add more of both, so if one of your websites becomes very popular, for example, you can always get more memory. Our system is rather flexible in this regard and we don’t tie a specific number of instances to a fixed amount of system memory. You can take advantage of Memcached to increase the loading speed of any script-driven website, including those that are based on widely used web applications, such as WordPress or Joomla.
Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting
Memcached comes free of charge with all Linux dedicated servers hosting packages that we’re offering and the sole requirement is that the dedicated server must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. You can use the distributed memory object caching system for any database-driven Internet site, including those that are based on widely used software apps – for example, a WordPress weblog or a Joomla-powered community portal. Each dedicated machine is tied to a certain amount of memory that the Memcached caching system can use, but the minimum you will get is three gigabytes, which is quite enough to enhance the loading speed of extremely large sites significantly, as this memory will be dedicated to storing the cached info. The Memcached system will begin caching info the moment it’s activated, so soon after that, you’ll distinguish the enhanced performance of your sites and the decreased load on the dedicated server. A lot of sites use Memcached to improve their efficiency, among them famous ones like Wikipedia and Reddit.
