Memcached is a memory caching system, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years because of its effectiveness. It’s used to cache requests and replies between a database and the app that’s using it, which can boost the overall performance of your site and decrease the created load greatly. Every time a web page on an app-powered Internet site is visited, the application connects to the database and "asks" what info should be displayed, and then extracts it. With Memcached, these steps are skipped, as the platform has already cached the content that should be displayed on a particular web page. If any data is updated, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the website visitors will never see outdated data. Memcached is an ideal choice for every website that entices numerous visitors, as it will make it faster than the speed of light and will improve the user experience.
Memcached in Cloud Hosting
Memcached is offered as an optional upgrade with each cloud hosting
account that we’re offering and if you would like to use it for any script-driven Internet site that you host on our innovative cloud hosting platform, you’ll be able to add it in a couple of simple steps through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. During the process, you will get the option to upgrade two different features – the instances and the system memory. The first one refers to the number of the Internet sites that can use the Memcached data caching system simultaneously, so if you need it for several Internet sites, you can order a handful of instances. The second one has to do with the total amount of memory that Memcached will be allowed to use in order to cache info, so for many websites (or for one single resource-intensive site), you should get more memory for better results. The memory is available in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be ordered at any point. With Memcached, each script-powered site hosted on our servers will load amazingly fast.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can add the Memcached distributed memory object caching platform to any of the Linux semi-dedicated service
that we are offering and use its full capacity for any script-powered Internet site hosted by us. The upgrade is accessible through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can choose two features – the instances and the system memory. These things show how many sites can use the Memcached caching platform and how much system memory it will use to cache your data. You can select them independently, since one instance is not linked to a particular amount of system memory, so you can use lots of memory for one traffic-hungry Internet site, for example. This feature is offered in increments of 16 MB and you can get as much memory as you wish. The platform can be used with any script-powered website irrespective of its type, including those that are based on widespread Internet applications like Joomla™
or WordPress, and many companies such as Wikipedia and Zynga are already using it to increase the loading speed of their websites.
Memcached in VPS Servers
Memcached is available by default with all Linux VPS servers
that are ordered with our custom Hepsia Control Panel. The PHP extension it requires in order to work properly is compiled when the server is set up, so you can begin using the object caching platform as soon as your brand new server is completely ready. The memory that the Memcached caching platform can use depends on the given plan, but even with the low-end plans, you will get several hundred megabytes that will be at your disposal exclusively for this platform. This will allow you to optimize the overall performance of multiple websites hosted on the VPS server at the same time and to lower the load on the machine even if you’ve got large-size script-driven sites with lots of viewers. The platform can be used with any script – Joomla™
, Mambo or Drupal™
, or a custom one, and you’ll observe the better performance soon after you begin using it.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers
You can use the full potential of Memcached with each dedicated server
that we are offering in case you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. A special Control Panel section is dedicated to the distributed memory object caching system and you can start using Memcached for any Internet site hosted on the machine with just a couple of clicks of the mouse. You can enhance the overall performance of any website, irrespective of what script-powered app you’re using or how large the site is, as the minimum amount of system memory that Memcached will be able to use is three gigabytes and this amount increases tremendously with the more powerful dedicated servers. Soon after the caching system is activated, it will start caching information anytime someone visits your site, so, once sufficient content has been cached, you’ll detect the decreased load on your server and the enhanced overall performance of your site. The Memcached system is being used by a lot of sites, including popular portals like Zynga, Wikipedia and Reddit, which verifies the efficiency of the caching system.
