Memcached is a memory caching system, which has been gaining in popularity lately because of its effectiveness. It’s used to cache queries and responses between a database and the app that is using it, which can increase the performance of your website and decrease the produced load greatly. Every time a webpage on an application-powered site is accessed, the application connects to the database and "asks" what info should be displayed, and then fetches it. With Memcached, these procedures are omitted, since the platform has already cached the content that should appear on a particular web page. When any content is changed, the Memcached content is updated too, so the website visitors will never end up seeing outdated content. The Memcached platform is an ideal choice for any website that attracts numerous viewers, as it will speed it up and will improve the overall user experience.
Memcached in Shared Hosting
If you host script-powered sites in a shared hosting account with our company, you will be able to add the Memcached object caching system to your shared hosting plan with just a couple of mouse clicks via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantaneously and, since the extension needed for it is already installed on our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform, you can begin using it right away. To give you more flexibility, we offer two different upgrades related to the number of instances (in other words – how many Internet sites will use Memcached) and to the system memory that Memcached will use. The latter comes in increments of 16 MB and you can add memory as many times as you wish. Naturally, the more memory Memcached is allowed to use, the more content it will cache, so in case you have a large website with lots of content, you may need more memory so as 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 object caching system as an optional upgrade with each of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting and since it works with any script-powered software app, you can use it for any site that you host on our semi-dedicated servers, no matter what app you have used – Joomla, WordPress or Mambo, a custom app, etc. You can request the upgrade from the respective section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel from which you manage your semi-dedicated account, and you can select two different things – the number of instances and the amount of memory that they will use. Basically, these things show the number of the websites that will use the Memcached system and how much system memory the system will be able to use in order to store your data. The two features are ordered independently for more flexibility and one instance does not come with a pre-defined amount of system memory. You can make the most of Memcached with any sort of site and both you and your site visitors will swiftly see the difference in the overall performance.
Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting
Any dedicated server that is ordered with our Hepsia Control Panel comes with Memcached pre-installed by default, so you can start using the object caching system the moment your server is ready, without the need to install or upgrade anything. The amount of memory that Memcached can use depends on the very server that you have chosen, but as our servers are stunningly powerful and due to the fact that it’s likely that you will host resource-hungry sites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the caching system can use is 3 GB. This will enable you to accelerate the overall performance of very heavy websites effortlessly and you will detect the difference soon after the Memcached system starts caching database calls. You can take full advantage of the system with any database-driven web portal, including those based on popular Content Management Systems such as Joomla and WordPress.
