Learn what Memcached is and how come many people try it for their databases.
Memcached is a distributed memory caching platform, which has been gaining popularity lately owing to its effectiveness. It’s used to cache calls and replies between a database and the app that’s using it, which can enhance the overall performance of your website and decrease the generated load immensely. Every time a page on an app-driven site is opened, the application connects to the database and "asks" what information should be displayed, and then drags it. With Memcached, these procedures are skipped, as the platform has already cached the content that should show up on a certain page. When any content is updated, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the site visitors will never see outdated data. The platform is a perfect solution for any site that entices numerous viewers, as it will boost its loading speed and will improve the user experience.
Memcached in Cloud Website Hosting
You can make use of the Memcached distributed memory caching system with all cloud website hosting
that we are offering. It is offered as an upgrade, which you can activate with only a couple of mouse clicks via your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. It needs an extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud web hosting platform, so you can start using the Memcached caching system as soon as you order it. The upgrade is divided into two parts, which will offer you more versatility depending on the Internet sites that you want to use it for. The first one determines the number of the websites that will use Memcached, or the so-called ‘instances’, whereas the second one refers to the memory, i.e. to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can add more system memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you’ve ordered, the more data will be cached, which may be a pretty good idea for heavy-traffic websites with large-sized databases and many users. In this way, you can optimize the overall performance of any script-powered Internet site hosted on our servers with ease.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can add the Memcached distributed memory caching platform to any of the semi-dedicated services
offered by us and make use of its full potential for any script-powered site hosted on our servers. The upgrade is accessible through the Hepsia Control Panel and you can select two features – the number of instances and the system memory. These things determine how many websites can use the Memcached platform and the amount of system memory that it will use to cache your content. You can choose them separately, since one instance is not linked to a specific amount of system memory, so you can use lots of memory for one frequently visited website, for example. This feature is available in increments of 16 MB and you can order as much memory as you want. The platform can be used with any script-powered website regardless of its nature, including those based on widely used software applications like Drupal™
, WordPress or Joomla™
, and a lot of companies such as Wikipedia and Zynga are already using it to boost the speed of their sites.
Memcached in VPS Hosting
If you order a virtual private server
from our company, you’ll be able to use Memcached at no extra charge, as the memory caching platform is available with all virtual machines that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Even if you’ve got regularly visited websites, you can optimize their performance without efforts and the reduced load on your virtual server will allow you to keep using your current VPS hosting package rather than migrating to a more powerful one. The amount of system memory that Memcached can use to store content depends on the package that you’re using, but even with a low-end one, you will get at least several hundred MB, which is significantly more than what you’d get with a shared hosting package, so the website performance boost will be immense. You can use the Memcached platform with any database-driven app, no matter if you have created it yourself or you are using a ready-for-use one such as WordPress, OpenCart or Joomla™
Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting
You can make use of the full potential of Memcached with each dedicated server
that we are offering in case you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel. A special section in it is dedicated to the memory caching system and you can begin using Memcached for any site hosted on the dedicated server with just a few clicks. You can enhance the performance of any website, regardless of what script-based web application you rely on or how heavy the site is, as the minimum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to employ is three gigabytes and this amount grows enormously with the more powerful dedicated servers. Shortly after the caching system is enabled, it will start caching information every time someone browses your website, so, as soon as enough data has been stored, you will distinguish the decreased load on the dedicated machine and the optimized performance of the Internet site. The Memcached system is used by lots of sites, including popular portals such as Wikipedia, Reddit and Zynga, which confirms the effectiveness of the caching system.
