Find out what Memcached is and exactly why a lot more people utilize it for their databases.
Memcached is a caching platform, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years owing to its effectiveness. It is used to cache requests and replies between a database and the app that’s using it, which can accelerate the overall performance of your site and lessen the created load immensely. Anytime a web page on an application-driven Internet site is opened, the application connects to the database and "asks" what info should be shown, and then drags it. With Memcached, these procedures are skipped, as the platform has already cached all the content that should be displayed on a given page. In case any data is updated, the Memcached content is updated as well, so the visitors will never end up seeing outdated content. The Memcached platform is an ideal solution for every website that has plenty of viewers, as it will make it extremely fast and will enhance the overall user experience.
Memcached in Shared Web Hosting
If you host script-powered sites in a shared web hosting
account with our company, you will be able to add the Memcached content caching system to your shared web hosting plan with just a couple of clicks of the mouse via your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantly and, since the required extension is pre-installed on our avant-garde cloud web hosting platform, you can start using it straight away. To give you more versatility, we offer two different upgrades related to the number of instances (i.e. how many websites will use Memcached) and to the amount of system memory that the Memcached caching system will use. The latter comes in increments of 16 MB and you can order memory as many times as you want. Naturally, the more memory Memcached is permitted to use, the more data it will cache, so if you have a resource-intensive website with a lot of data, you may need more memory to be able to make full use of the power that Memcached can offer you.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can get the Memcached distributed memory caching system as an upgrade with each of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting
and since it works with any script-powered software app, you can use it for each website that you host on our servers, no matter what application you have used – Mambo, Joomla™
or WordPress, a custom one, etc. You can add the upgrade via the respective section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel from which you manage your semi-dedicated server account, and you can choose two different features – the number of instances and the amount of system memory that they will use. To put it simply, these things define the number of the sites that will use Memcached and the total amount of system memory that the system will be able to use to cache your information. The two features are offered independently for more flexibility and one instance does not come bundled with a particular amount of system memory. You can take advantage of Memcached with any type of site and both you and the website visitors will swiftly notice the difference in the overall performance.
Memcached in VPS Hosting
You will get Memcached with any of the virtual private server
plans that we’re offering when you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel and you will be able to activate the distributed memory caching platform via the Control Panel section with the same name. The configuration requires a couple of clicks of the mouse and you’ll distinguish the difference in the overall performance of your websites almost momentarily. The amount of memory that the Memcached platform can take advantage of to store data depends on the given VPS package that you’ve selected, but in any case it won’t be less than several hundred MB, which is quite enough even for several resource-demanding websites. You can use the Memcached platform with sites based on Joomla™
, WordPress or any other Internet application and reduce the load on your server, which will permit you to keep using the current Virtual Private Server hosting plan rather than moving to a more powerful one, since you will simply not need it. The Memcached platform is already being used by famous websites like Zynga, Wikipedia and Reddit, which confirms its efficacy.
Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting
You can use the full potential of Memcached with every dedicated server
that we’re offering if you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. A special section in it is dedicated to the content caching system and you can start using Memcached for any Internet site hosted on the server with just a couple of clicks of the mouse. You can increase the performance of any Internet site, regardless of what script-based software application you are using or how busy the website is, since the minimum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to use is 3 gigabytes and this amount increases enormously with the higher-end dedicated servers. Shortly after the system is enabled, it will begin caching info every time somebody visits your website, so, as soon as enough info has been stored, you’ll detect the reduced load on your server and the improved overall performance of the site. Memcached is used by a lot of sites, among them popular portals such as Zynga, Wikipedia and Reddit, which shows the effectiveness of the Memcached caching system.
