Memcached is an object caching system, which has been gaining popularity lately due to its efficiency. It’s used to cache queries and responses between a database and the application that is using it, which can improve the overall performance of your Internet site and lessen the generated load tremendously. Anytime a webpage on an application-powered site is visited, the app connects to the database and "asks" what information should be displayed, and then drags it. With Memcached, these steps are omitted, as the platform has already cached all of the content that should appear on a specific web page. When any content is modified, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ too, so the site visitors will never see out-of-date content. The platform is an ideal option for any site that attracts a lot of viewers, as it will make it really fast and will improve the overall user experience.
Memcached in Cloud Hosting
The Memcached distributed memory object caching system comes as an optional upgrade with each and every cloud hosting that we are offering and you can begin using it the moment you order it, since the PHP extension that it needs in order to run correctly is pre-installed on our leading-edge cloud platform. You can request the upgrade through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with each and every web hosting plan and a brand new Control Panel section where you can manage Memcached will show up. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts – the instances and the system memory, so as to give you more freedom. The first one refers to the number of the Internet sites which can use Memcached, whereas the second one, which is offered in increments of 16 megabytes, indicates the maximum size of the content that can be cached by the system. A traffic-intensive site with a very large database may need more memory so as to take an even greater advantage of the Memcached caching system, so if you’d like to upgrade this service, you will be able to do it at any given moment with a few mouse clicks.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you choose to host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account, you can take advantage of Memcached effortlessly, as the data caching platform’s setup takes several clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. The extension that is required is already installed on our 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 can be cached, i.e. there’re two separate features that can be upgraded – the instances and the system memory. You can order more of both, so if one of your websites becomes extremely popular, for example, you can always add more memory to it. Our system is pretty flexible in this regard and we do not tie a particular number of instances to a pre-defined amount of system memory. You can employ the Memcached platform to increase the speed of any script-powered website, including those that are based on famous Internet apps, such as Joomla or WordPress.
Memcached in VPS Servers
Memcached comes by default with every VPS server offered by us as long as you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel, so you won’t need to pay any extra money to be able to take advantage of the maximum potential of this data caching system. The more powerful Virtual Private Server plan you pick, the more memory Memcached will have for content caching purposes, but you will have no less than several hundred megabytes at all times, which is much more than what you would get with a shared web hosting package. This will allow you to use the Memcached caching system for many sites, irrespective of how busy they are, which in turn means that you can use a low-end package for them without overloading your Virtual Private Server. The caching system is excellent for script-based software apps such as OpenCart, Joomla, WordPress or Mambo, and you can use it even with a custom-created app. Shortly after you enable Memcached, it will start storing info and you will observe the improved performance of your websites.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers
When you get one of our dedicated service and if you pick Hepsia as your website hosting Control Panel during the signup procedure, you will get the Memcached memory caching platform as standard and you can use it with each website that you host on your server without upgrading or installing anything. It will start storing information as users open your Internet site, so you’ll detect the result of using it shortly after that. The minimum amount of memory that will be available to the caching platform is 3 gigabytes and normally, the more powerful the plan, the more memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will permit you to take advantage of the caching platform for lots of Internet sites or for a very busy Internet site without weakening its effectiveness. The Memcached platform will permit you to accelerate the loading speed of any database-driven Internet site very quickly – a Joomla portal, a WordPress online blog, an OpenCart e-store, etcetera, and to boost the overall performance of your server.
