Memcached is an object caching platform, which has been gaining popularity lately due to its efficiency. It is used to cache queries and responses between a database and the app that’s using it, which can increase the overall performance of your Internet site and decrease the produced server load drastically. Anytime a page on an application-powered site is accessed, the app connects to the database and "asks" what info should be shown, and then fetches it. With Memcached, these steps are skipped, as the platform has already cached all the content that should show up on a given page. If any content is changed, the Memcached content is updated as well, so the site visitors will never see old data. The platform is an excellent solution for every site that lures plenty of visitors, as it will make it really fast and will enhance the user experience.
Memcached in Shared Hosting
The Memcached caching system is available as an upgrade with every Linux shared hosting offered by our company and you can start using it the moment you add it, since the extension that it needs so as to work correctly is already available on our cutting-edge cloud platform. You can request the upgrade through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with each shared web hosting plan and a brand new section where you can manage Memcached will appear. The upgrade is divided into two parts – the number of instances and the system memory, so as to give you more versatility. The first one shows the number of the sites which can use Memcached, whereas the second, which is available in increments of 16 MB, specifies the maximum size of the content that the system can cache. A regularly visited website with a large-sized database may need more memory so as to take an even bigger advantage of Memcached, so in case you’d like to upgrade this service, you’ll be able to do it at any given time with a couple of clicks of the mouse.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you order any of our semi-dedicated server packages, you will find Memcached as an optional feature in the Upgrades section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so if you wish to use it for any of the sites hosted in the semi-dedicated account, you can enable it with just a couple of clicks. The content caching platform is ideal for any script-driven app like Joomla, WordPress, or even a custom-made application, and based on your demands, you’ll be able to choose two separate features – how many Internet sites will use Memcached, in other words – the number of instances; and how much data will be stored, in other words – the amount of memory that the platform will employ. The two things are not tied to each other, so if you manage a frequently visited website with a lot of content, you can order one instance and a larger amount of memory. Memcached will enhance the overall performance of your websites soon after you activate it and both you and your website visitors will enjoy faster load times.
Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting
If you purchase any of our Linux dedicated web hosting and if you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel on the order page, you will get the Memcached distributed memory object caching platform as standard and you can enable it for any Internet site that you host on the dedicated server without installing or upgrading anything. It will begin storing information as users access your website, so you’ll notice the results of using it soon thereafter. The minimum amount of system memory that will be available to the platform is 3 gigabytes and normally, the more powerful the plan, the more system memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will permit you to take advantage of the platform for plenty of sites or for an extremely popular site without weakening its efficiency. The Memcached caching platform will permit you to accelerate the loading speed of any database-powered website very quickly – a Joomla portal, a WordPress online blog, an OpenCart e-shop, etc., and to boost the overall performance of your server.
