Memcached is a content caching platform, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years owing to its efficiency. It is used to cache queries and replies between a database and the app that is using it, which can enhance the overall performance of your Internet site and decrease the created load greatly. Every time a webpage on an app-driven site is accessed, the application 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 the content that should be shown on a given web page. In case any content is changed, the Memcached content is updated as well, so the users will never see old data. The platform is an ideal solution for every website that lures plenty of viewers, as it will make it truly fast and will improve the overall user experience.
Memcached in Cloud Website Hosting
Memcached comes as an upgrade with each and every cloud website hosting account that we offer and in case you wish to use it for any script-powered Internet site that you host on our cutting-edge cloud platform, you’ll be able to enable it in a couple of easy steps via your Hepsia Control Panel. In the meantime, you’ll get the option to upgrade two different features – the instances and the system memory. The first one has to do with the number of the Internet sites that can use the Memcached data caching system at the same time, so if you need it for several websites, you can order a handful of instances. The second one has to do with the maximum amount of memory that the system will be permitted to use in order to cache content, so for multiple websites (or for one single resource-absorbing site), you should order more memory for better performance. The memory is available in increments of 16 MB and more memory can be added at any moment. With Memcached, any script-based website hosted on our cloud servers will load much faster.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you choose to host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account, you can take advantage of Memcached easily, as the platform’s activation takes a couple of clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. The required extension is already installed on our semi-dedicated servers, so you can start using the Memcached platform as soon as you add it to your semi-dedicated server account. You will be able to choose how many websites can use it and how much information it will cache, in other words – there are two separate features that can be upgraded – the instances and the amount of system memory. You can order more of both, so if one of your websites becomes very busy, for example, you can always get more memory. Our system is very flexible in this regard and we don’t bind a specific number of instances to a pre-defined amount of system memory. You can employ Memcached to improve the speed of any script-driven site, including those that are based on popular Internet applications, such as WordPress or Joomla.
Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting
Any dedicated server that is ordered with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel comes with Memcached pre-installed by default, so you can start using the memory caching system once your dedicated server is assembled, without having to upgrade or install anything. The amount of system memory that Memcached can employ depends on the very server that you have chosen, but since our servers are amazingly powerful and due to the fact that it is likely that you’ll host resource-demanding websites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the caching system can use will be 3 gigabytes. This will enable you to enhance the overall performance of extremely large Internet sites without effort and you’ll detect the difference shortly after the Memcached system begins caching database calls. You can take advantage of the Memcached caching system with any database-driven web portal, including those that are based on widely used CMSs such as Joomla and WordPress.
