Memcached is a content caching system, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years owing to its effectiveness. It’s used to cache calls and replies between a database and the app that is using it, which can accelerate the overall performance of your site and lessen the produced server load tremendously. Every time a page on an application-powered Internet site is opened, the application connects to the database and "asks" what information should be shown, and then drags it. With Memcached, these procedures are omitted, as the platform has already cached the content that should be displayed on a particular page. If any content is changed, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the users will never end up seeing out-of-date data. The platform is a perfect solution for any site that draws lots of viewers, as it will accelerate it and will improve the overall user experience.
Memcached in Website Hosting
You can use the Memcached distributed memory object caching system with all Linux website hosting packages
offered by our company. It is available as an upgrade, which you can enable with just a few clicks of the mouse via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It needs an extension, which is already installed on our cloud hosting platform, so you can start using Memcached as soon as you order it. The upgrade is divided into two parts, which will offer you more versatility depending on the websites that you’d like to use it for. The first one shows the number of the websites that will use the Memcached caching system, or the so-called ‘instances’, while the second one refers to the system memory, i.e. to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can get more memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you’ve added, the more content will be cached, which may be a quite good idea for frequently visited websites with large-sized databases and lots of visitors. Thus, you can improve the overall performance of every script-driven site hosted on our cloud servers with no effort.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you acquire any of our semi-dedicated server
packages, you’ll find Memcached as an optional feature in the Upgrades section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so if you want to use it for any of the websites hosted in your semi-dedicated server hosting account, you can enable it with just a couple of mouse clicks. The data caching platform is ideal for any script-powered web application like WordPress, Joomla™
, or even an in-house made app, and based on your necessities, you will be able to choose two different things – how many Internet sites will use the Memcached caching platform, i.e. the number of instances; and how much content will be stored, in other words – the amount of system memory that the platform will employ. The two features are not tied to each other, so if you own a frequently visited Internet site with lots of data, you can get one instance and a large amount of system memory. Memcached will increase the performance of your sites soon after you activate it and both you and your site visitors will enjoy faster loading speeds.
Memcached in VPS Hosting
Memcached is available as standard with all Linux VPS hosting packages
ordered with our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The PHP extension it requires so as to perform correctly is compiled when the server is configured, so you can begin using the distributed memory caching platform the moment your new Virtual Private Server is fully operational. The system memory that the Memcached caching platform can use depends on the given plan, but even with the less powerful ones, several hundred megabytes will be at your disposal exclusively for this platform. This will permit you to enhance the overall performance of multiple websites hosted on the Virtual Private Server at the same time and to reduce the load on the machine even if you own frequently visited script-based sites with multiple visitors. The platform can be used with any script – Drupal™
, Mambo or Joomla™
, or a custom-made one, and you’ll see the better performance soon after you begin using it.
Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting
If you purchase one of our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages
and if you select Hepsia as your website hosting Control Panel at signup, you’ll get the Memcached caching platform as standard and you can use it with any Internet site that you host on your server without upgrading or installing anything. It will start storing information as people visit your Internet site, so you’ll see the result of using it shortly thereafter. The minimum amount of system memory that will be available to the Memcached caching platform is 3 gigabytes and naturally, the more powerful the dedicate server plan, the more system memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will permit you to use the caching platform for multiple Internet sites or for an extremely heavy Internet site without compromising its efficiency. Memcached will allow you to speed up any database-powered site in no time – a Joomla™
portal, a WordPress weblog, an OpenCart web shop, etc., and to enhance the performance of your dedicated machine.
