Memcached is a caching platform, which has been gaining popularity in recent years because of its efficiency. It’s used to cache calls and replies between a database and the app that is using it, which can accelerate the overall performance of your site and reduce the generated load substantially. Anytime a webpage on an application-driven Internet site is opened, the application connects to the database and "asks" what info should be displayed, and then fetches it. With Memcached, these steps are omitted, as the platform has already cached all the content that should be shown on a certain webpage. In case any data is changed, the Memcached content is updated too, so the users will never end up seeing old content. The platform is a perfect option for any website that draws many viewers, since it will make it incredibly fast and will improve the user experience.
Memcached in Web Hosting
Memcached is offered as an upgrade with each and every web hosting package that we’re offering and if you want to use it for any script-driven Internet site that you host on our avant-garde cloud hosting platform, you’ll be able to add it in a few easy steps through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. In the meantime, you will be given the option to upgrade two different things – the number of instances and the memory. The first one has to do with the number of the websites that can use Memcached at the same time, so if you need it for several sites, you can order a handful of instances. The second one refers to the total amount of memory that the system will be able to use to cache content, so for lots of websites (or for one single frequently visited site), you should order more memory for improved performance. The memory comes in increments of 16 MB and more memory can be ordered at any moment. With the Memcached caching system, each script-based site hosted on our cloud servers will load unbelievably fast.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can get the Memcached memory caching system as an upgrade with each of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages and since it works with any script-powered web app, you can use it for any website that you host on our servers, irrespective of what app you have used – Mambo, WordPress or Joomla, a custom-created one, etc. You can request the upgrade from the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel from which you manage your semi-dedicated account, and you can select two different things – the instances and the amount of memory that they will use. Basically, these things show how many websites will use Memcached and the total amount of memory that the system will be able to use to cache your content. The two features are ordered independently for more flexibility and one instance does not come with a fixed amount of system memory. You can make full use of Memcached with any type of website and both you and the site visitors will quickly see the difference in the overall performance.
Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting
When you acquire one of our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages and if you choose Hepsia as your website hosting Control Panel during the signup process, you’ll get the Memcached caching platform as standard and you can enable it for any Internet site that you host on your dedicated machine without upgrading or installing anything. It will begin caching content as users open your website, so you will detect the result of using it shortly after that. The minimum amount of memory that will be available to the platform is 3 GB and normally, the more powerful the dedicated package, the more memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will permit you to use the platform for lots of sites or for a very busy website without weakening its efficiency. The Memcached caching platform will enable you to enhance the loading speed of any database-driven Internet site in no time – a Joomla portal, a WordPress personal diary, an OpenCart web shop, etcetera, and to improve the overall performance of your dedicated machine.
