Learn what Memcached is and precisely why a great number of utilize it for their databases.
Memcached is a caching system, which has been gaining popularity in recent years because of its effectiveness. It’s used to cache requests and replies between a database and the application that’s using it, which can boost the performance of your site and lessen the generated server load greatly. Anytime a page on an application-driven site is visited, the application connects to the database and "asks" what info should be displayed, and then pulls it. With Memcached, these steps are omitted, as the platform has already cached the content that should appear on a certain page. When any content is updated, the Memcached content is updated as well, so the website visitors will never end up seeing old data. Memcached is a perfect choice for every website that draws lots of viewers, since it will make it amazingly fast and will enhance the overall user experience.
Memcached in Cloud Website Hosting
Memcached is offered as an upgrade with each and every cloud website hosting
package that we’re offering and in case you would like to use it for any script-based website that you host on our avant-garde cloud web hosting platform, you will be able to activate it in a few simple steps via your Hepsia Control Panel. During the process, you’ll get the option to upgrade two different features – the number of instances and the system memory. The first one has to do with the number of the Internet sites that can use the Memcached memory caching system simultaneously, so if you need it for several sites, you can order a number of instances. The second one has to do with the maximum amount of memory that the system will be allowed to use to cache data, so for plenty of websites (or for one single busy site), you’d better order more memory for better results. The memory is available in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be added at any moment. With Memcached, every script-driven Internet site hosted on our servers will open lightning-fast.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you order any of our semi-dedicated server
packages, you will find Memcached as an optional upgrade in the Upgrades part of your Hepsia Control Panel, so if you wish to use it for any of the websites hosted in your semi-dedicated account, you can add it with just a couple of clicks of the mouse. The content caching platform is suitable for any script-driven web application such as Joomla™
, WordPress, or even a custom-developed application, and based on your necessities, you will be able to select two separate things – how many websites will use the Memcached platform, i.e. the number of instances; and how much information will be cached, i.e. the amount of memory that the platform will use. The two things are not bound to each other, so if you manage a high-demand website with lots of content, you can get one instance and a large amount of system memory. The Memcached caching platform will optimize the performance of your Internet sites soon after you activate it and both you and your site visitors will enjoy better loading times.
Memcached in VPS Servers
You will get Memcached with each of the VPS server
plans that we’re offering in case you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to activate the distributed memory caching platform via the Control Panel section with the very same name. The setup takes a couple of clicks of the mouse and you will detect the difference in the performance of your sites almost immediately. The amount of system memory that Memcached can employ to cache information depends on the given VPS hosting package that you have selected, but in any case it will be at least several hundred MB, which is quite enough even for several frequently visited Internet sites. You can use Memcached with websites driven by Joomla™
, WordPress or any other web-based app and lower the load on your Virtual Private Server, which will permit you to continue using the current Virtual Private Server package rather than moving to a more powerful one, as you will simply not need it. The Memcached platform is already being used by popular websites such as Zynga, Reddit and Wikipedia, which is a proof of its efficiency.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers
Any dedicated server
that’s ordered with our Hepsia Control Panel comes with Memcached pre-installed by default, so you can start using the memory caching system as soon as the server is fully operational, without having to install or upgrade anything. The amount of system memory that Memcached can use depends on the very server that you have picked, but since our servers are unbelievably powerful and due to the fact that it’s likely that you will host resource-intensive sites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the caching system can use is three gigabytes. This will allow you to optimize the overall performance of extremely heavy Internet sites with ease and you will note the difference soon after the Memcached caching system begins caching database queries. You can make full use of the system with any database-driven portal, including those that are based on widely used CMSs like Joomla™
