An increasing number of users employ Memcached so as to increase database performance. What is Memcached?
Memcached is a distributed memory caching system, which has been gaining popularity lately owing to its effectiveness. It is used to cache calls and responses between a database and the application that uses it, which can accelerate the performance of your site and reduce the generated load tremendously. Every time a web page on an application-driven Internet site is visited, the app connects to the database and "asks" what information should be displayed, and then extracts it. With Memcached, these procedures are skipped, since the platform has already cached all of the content that should show up on a specific web page. In case any content is modified, the Memcached content is updated too, so the users will never end up seeing outdated content. Memcached is a perfect solution for any site that has a lot of viewers, as it will make it incredibly fast and will improve the user experience.
Memcached in Website Hosting
Memcached comes as an upgrade with each website hosting
package offered by our company and if you want to use it for any script-driven website that you host on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform, you will be able to enable it in a few simple steps through your Hepsia Control Panel. In the meantime, you’ll be given the option to upgrade two separate features – the instances and the memory. The first one is related to the number of the Internet sites that can use the Memcached memory caching system at the same time, so if you need it for several Internet sites, you can order a handful of instances. The second one has to do with the total amount of memory that Memcached will be permitted to use to cache information, so for lots of sites (or for one single large-sized site), you may want to order more memory for better performance. The memory is available in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be added at any time. With the Memcached caching system, every script-based website hosted on our servers will load amazingly fast.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you obtain one of our semi-dedicated server
plans, you will 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 your account, you can enable it with just a couple of mouse clicks. The platform is suitable for any script-driven web app such as WordPress, Joomla™
, or even a custom app, and depending on your needs, you will be able to select two different things – how many Internet sites will use the Memcached platform, i.e. the number of instances; and how much information will be stored, in other words – the amount of memory that the platform will employ. The two things are not bound to each other, so if you manage a traffic-intensive site with lots of data, you can get one instance and a larger amount of memory. Memcached will boost the overall performance of your websites shortly after you enable it and both you and your visitors will enjoy much better load speeds.
Memcached in VPS Hosting
Memcached is included by default with each virtual private server
offered by us as long as you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel, so you will not need to pay anything extra to be able to make the most of the maximum potential of this data caching system. The more powerful VPS plan you select, the more system memory Memcached will have for information storage purposes, but you will have no less than several hundred MB at all times, which is much more than what you would get with a shared package. This will enable you to use the Memcached caching system for many Internet sites, irrespective of how busy they are, which in turn goes to say that you can use a lower-end package for them without overloading the virtual server. The Memcached caching system is ideal for script-driven applications such as Joomla™
, WordPress, OpenCart or Mambo, and you can utilize it even with a custom-built app. Soon after you activate Memcached, it will begin caching information and you will distinguish the optimized performance of your sites.
Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting
When you buy any of our Linux dedicated web hosting
and if you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel during the signup procedure, you will get the Memcached platform by default and you can use it with each Internet site that you host on the dedicated machine without installing or upgrading anything. It will begin caching info as people open your site, so you will detect the effects of using it soon after that. The minimum amount of memory that will be available to the Memcached caching platform is three gigabytes and normally, the more powerful the dedicated package, the more system memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will enable you to use the caching platform for multiple sites or for a very large site without compromising its efficacy. The Memcached caching platform will allow you to optimize the loading speed of any database-driven site very quickly – a Joomla™
portal, a WordPress online journal, an OpenCart e-store, etc., and to improve the performance of your dedicated machine.
