Memcached is a content caching system, which has been gaining popularity lately owing to its effectiveness. It is used to cache calls and replies between a database and the application that is using it, which can improve the performance of your Internet site and lessen the generated server load substantially. Every time a page on an app-powered website is visited, the application connects to the database and "asks" what information should be displayed, and then drags it. With Memcached, these steps are skipped, as the platform has already cached all of the content that should show up on a particular web page. In case any content is edited, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ too, so the visitors will never see old data. The Memcached platform is an excellent solution for any site that attracts many viewers, as it will make it faster than the speed of light and will improve the overall user experience.
Memcached in Website Hosting
The Memcached memory caching system is available as an optional upgrade with every Linux website hosting that we’re offering and you will be able to start using it once you order it, as the extension that it needs in order to run correctly is already installed on our innovative cloud platform. You can request the upgrade via the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with each and every shared web hosting plan and a brand-new section where you can administer Memcached will appear. The upgrade is divided into two parts – the number of instances and the memory, so as to offer you more freedom. The first one shows the number of the Internet sites that can use Memcached, whereas the second, which comes in increments of 16 MB, specifies the maximum size of the content that can be cached by the system. A traffic-intensive website with a very large database may require more memory so as to take an even bigger advantage of Memcached, so in case you want to upgrade this feature, you will be able to do it at any time with several clicks of the mouse.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you buy one of our semi-dedicated server packages, you’ll find Memcached as an optional upgrade in the Upgrades section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so if you wish to use it for any of the websites hosted in the semi-dedicated server hosting account, you can enable it with just a few clicks. The distributed memory object caching platform is ideal for any script-based application such as Joomla, WordPress, or even a custom-developed application, and depending on your requirements, you’ll be able to choose two different things – how many sites will use the Memcached platform, in other words – the number of instances; and how much info will be cached, i.e. the amount of system memory that the platform will use. The two things are not tied to each other, so if you run a traffic-consuming website with lots of data, you can get one instance and a large amount of memory. Memcached will improve the performance of your Internet sites shortly after you enable it and both you and your site visitors will enjoy much faster loading times.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting
Memcached is available for free with all Linux dedicated servers hosting packages offered by our company and the one and only condition is that the server must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. You can use the content caching system for any database-powered Internet site, including those that are based on famous web-based apps – for example, a WordPress personal journal or a Joomla-powered community web portal. Each dedicated server is tied to a certain amount of system memory that the Memcached system can employ, but the minimum you will get is three gigabytes, which is sufficient enough to accelerate the speed of very heavy websites enormously, since this very memory will be dedicated to storing the cached info. The Memcached system will start caching content as soon as it is enabled, so soon thereafter, you will see the optimized overall performance of your websites and the reduced load on the dedicated machine. Plenty of sites use the Memcached caching system to boost their effectiveness, including popular ones such as Wikipedia and Reddit.
