More and more users work with Memcached to raise database performance. What is Memcached?
Memcached is a distributed memory caching platform, which has been gaining popularity in recent years thanks to its efficiency. It is used to cache queries and replies between a database and the app that is using it, which can increase the overall performance of your Internet site and reduce the produced load immensely. Every time a webpage on an application-driven site is opened, the app connects to the database and "asks" what info should be shown, and then extracts it. With Memcached, these procedures are skipped, as the platform has already cached the content that should show up on a specific web page. When any content is updated, the Memcached content is updated as well, so the users will never see outdated content. The Memcached platform is an ideal choice for any site that draws plenty of viewers, as it will make it really fast and will improve the user experience.
Memcached in Website Hosting
Memcached is available as an upgrade with each and every website hosting
account that we offer and in case you wish to use it for any script-powered website that you host on our avant-garde cloud hosting platform, you will be able to activate it in a few easy steps via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. During the process, you’ll be offered the option to upgrade two separate things – the instances and the memory. The first one is related to the number of the sites that can use the Memcached data caching system simultaneously, so if you need it for several Internet sites, you can order a handful of instances. The second one refers to the total amount of memory that the system will be allowed to use to cache information, so for plenty of sites (or for one single traffic-intensive site), you may want to order more memory for better performance. The memory is available in increments of 16 MB and more memory can be ordered at any time. With Memcached, each script-powered Internet site hosted on our servers will load faster than the speed of light.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you decide to host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server
account, you’ll be able to take advantage of Memcached effortlessly, since the caching platform’s setup requires a couple of mouse clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. The PHP extension that is required is already installed on our semi-dedicated servers, so you can begin using Memcached the moment you add it to your account. You will be able to select how many Internet sites can use it and how much content it will cache, in other words – there are two separate upgradable features – the instances and the system memory. You can order more of both, so if one of your websites becomes extremely popular, for instance, you can always add more memory to it. Our system is quite flexible in this regard and we don’t bind a given number of instances to a pre-defined amount of memory. You can use the Memcached caching platform to boost the loading speed of any script-driven site, including those that are based on popular software applications, such as WordPress or Joomla™
Memcached in VPS Servers
Memcached comes by default with each VPS server
offered by our company provided that you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel, so you won’t need to pay anything extra to be able to use the full power of this distributed memory caching system. The more powerful Virtual Private Server hosting package you select, the more memory Memcached will have for information caching purposes, but you will have at least several hundred megabytes at all times, which is much more than the amount of memory you would get with a shared plan. This will allow you to use Memcached for plenty of websites, no matter how heavy they are, which in turn means that you can use a low-end plan for them without overloading the virtual machine. The Memcached caching system is suitable for script-based software applications such as WordPress, OpenCart, Joomla™
or Mambo, and you can use it even with a custom-made app. Soon after you activate Memcached, it will begin caching information and you’ll distinguish the enhanced overall performance of your websites.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers
Each dedicated server
that is ordered with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel comes with Memcached pre-installed by default, so you can begin using the data caching system the moment your server is ready, without the need to activate or upgrade anything. The amount of memory that Memcached can employ depends on the dedicated server that you’ve picked, but since our servers are exceptionally powerful and given the fact that it is likely that you’ll host resource-requiring Internet sites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the caching system can use is three gigabytes. This will enable you to improve the performance of extremely heavy Internet sites without any effort and you’ll detect the difference soon after the Memcached system begins caching database requests. You can make full use of the caching system with any database-powered web page, including those that are based on popular Content Management Systems such as Joomla™
