Memcached is a data caching system, which has been gaining in popularity lately because of its effectiveness. It’s used to cache queries and replies between a database and the app that’s using it, which can increase the performance of your Internet site and reduce the produced load immensely. Every time a webpage on an app-powered website is visited, the application connects to the database and "asks" what info should be displayed, and then fetches it. With Memcached, these steps are omitted, as the platform has already cached all the content that should show up on a particular page. In case any data is changed, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ too, so the site visitors will never see outdated content. The platform is an ideal solution for every site that entices plenty of visitors, since it will increase its loading speed and will enhance the user experience.
Memcached in Shared Website Hosting
When you host script-powered websites in a shared website hosting account with us, you’ll be able to add the Memcached object caching system to your web hosting package with only a couple of clicks via your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available immediately and, since the required PHP extension is pre-installed on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform, you can begin using it straight away. To give you more versatility, we offer two different upgrades related to the number of instances (i.e. how many sites will use Memcached) and to the system memory that the Memcached caching system will use. The latter is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order memory whenever you like. Naturally, the more memory Memcached is allowed to use, the more data it will cache, so in case you’ve got a traffic-intensive website with lots of content, you may require more memory to be able to take advantage of the power that Memcached can offer you.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can get the Memcached object caching system as an upgrade with all our Linux semi-dedicated hosting and since it works with any script-driven app, you can use it for each site that you host on our servers, regardless of what application you have used – Joomla, WordPress or Mambo, a custom-built one, etc. You can order the upgrade via the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel from which you administer your semi-dedicated account, and you can select two separate things – the instances and the amount of memory that they will use. To put it simply, these things determine how many Internet sites will use the Memcached caching system and the maximum amount of memory that the system will be able to use in order to cache your data. The two things are offered independently for more flexibility and one instance does not come with a pre-defined amount of memory. You can take full advantage of the Memcached system with any sort of website and both you and your visitors will swiftly see the difference in the overall performance.
Memcached in Dedicated Hosting
Any dedicated server ordered with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel comes with Memcached pre-installed by default, so you can begin using the memory caching system once the dedicated server is fully functional, without the need to install or upgrade anything. The amount of system memory that Memcached can employ depends on the server that you’ve chosen, but since our servers are rather powerful and considering the fact that it’s likely that you’ll host resource-demanding websites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the caching system can use will be 3 GB. This will allow you to enhance the performance of very popular websites without effort and you will detect the difference shortly after Memcached begins caching database requests. You can make full use of the Memcached system with any database-driven portal, including those that are based on widely used Content Management Systems such as Joomla and WordPress.
