Learn what Memcached is and why many people try it for their databases.
Memcached is a caching system, which has been gaining popularity lately because of its effectiveness. It’s used to cache queries and responses between a database and the app that is using it, which can boost the overall performance of your website and reduce the generated load tremendously. Anytime a page on an app-powered website is opened, the app connects to the database and "asks" what information should be displayed, and then pulls it. With Memcached, these steps are skipped, since the platform has already cached the content that should appear on a particular webpage. In case any content is changed, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ too, so the users will never end up seeing out-of-date data. Memcached is a perfect solution for every website that lures numerous visitors, as it will make it super-fast and will enhance the user experience.
Memcached in Hosting
If you host script-based sites in a hosting
account with us, you’ll be able to add the Memcached caching system to your shared web hosting package with only a few mouse clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantly and, since the extension required for it is already installed on our avant-garde cloud hosting platform, you can begin using it right away. To give you more flexibility, we offer two separate upgrades related to the number of instances (i.e. how many websites will use Memcached) and to the memory that the Memcached caching system will use. The latter comes in increments of 16 MB and you can add memory whenever you wish. Naturally, the more memory the Memcached caching system is allowed to use, the more content it will cache, so in case you run a larger site with lots of data, you may require more memory in order to be able to make the most of the power that Memcached can offer you.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you purchase one of our semi-dedicated server
packages, you’ll find Memcached as an optional upgrade in the Upgrades section of your Hepsia Control Panel, so if you want to use it for any of the websites hosted in the semi-dedicated server hosting account, you can enable it with just a couple of mouse clicks. The distributed memory object caching platform is ideal for any script-driven software application such as WordPress, Joomla™
, or even a custom-built application, and based on your needs, you will be able to select two separate things – how many sites will use Memcached, i.e. the number of instances; and how much information will be cached, in other words – the amount of system memory that the platform will use. The two features are not tied to each other, so if you’ve got a traffic-hungry site with a lot of data, you can order one instance and a larger amount of memory. Memcached will increase the performance of your Internet sites soon after you activate it and both you and your website visitors will enjoy better loading times.
Memcached in VPS Web Hosting
You’ll get Memcached with each of the virtual private server
plans that we are offering in case you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel and you will be able to activate the memory caching platform via the Control Panel section with the exact same name. The configuration requires a few mouse clicks and you will see the difference in the performance of your sites almost immediately. The amount of system memory that the Memcached caching platform can use to store data depends on the given Virtual Private Server plan that you have selected, but at any rate it won’t be less than several hundred MB, which is more than enough even for several large-scale websites. You can use Memcached with Internet sites powered by WordPress, Joomla™
or any other web app and decrease the load on your Virtual Private Server, which will enable you to continue using the current Virtual Private Server plan rather than moving to a more powerful one, since you simply won’t need it. The Memcached platform is already being used by famous websites like Reddit, Wikipedia and Zynga, which confirms its efficacy.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting
Any dedicated server
that’s ordered with our Hepsia Control Panel comes with Memcached already installed by default, so you can begin using this memory caching system as soon as your server is up and running, without the need to install or upgrade anything. The amount of memory that Memcached can use depends on the very server that you have chosen, but as our servers are really powerful and given the fact that it is likely that you’ll host resource-demanding Internet sites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the caching system can use is 3 GB. This will allow you to boost the overall performance of extremely large Internet sites without any effort and you will distinguish the difference soon after the Memcached system begins caching database requests. You can take advantage of the Memcached system with any database-driven online portal, including those that are based on popular CMSs like WordPress and Joomla™
