Memcached is a caching system, which is used to increase the loading speed of database-powered websites by caching the calls and the responses between the user and the server. To put it differently, every time a given page on such a website is accessed, the script connects to its database to get the info that should be displayed to the visitor. If the latter clicks a link to go to some other web page, the whole operation is carried out again and this generates a lot of database calls and excessive server load, particularly if the website has a lot of concurrent visitors. Memcached "memorizes" this exchange of information, so in case any of these pages is accessed again, the script no longer has to request any data from the database, as everything is delivered by the Memcached platform. In this way, the overall speed of your website will increase and you’ll enjoy more gratified visitors and they will be able to navigate through your site faster. Moreover, Memcached updates its cache every time any information in the database is edited, so the website users will never see old data.
Memcached in Website Hosting
You can take advantage of the Memcached caching system with all Linux website hosting services that we’re offering. It is available as an upgrade, which you can obtain with just a few mouse clicks through your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. It needs an extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud website hosting platform, so you can start using the Memcached caching system once you add it. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts, which will offer you more versatility depending on the websites that you would like to use it for. The first part indicates the number of the sites that will use the Memcached caching system, or the ‘instances’, while the second one refers to the system memory, i.e. to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can order more system memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you have ordered, the more data will be cached, which may be a very good idea for traffic-heavy sites with large-size databases and many concurrent visitors. Thus, you can enhance the performance of any script-driven website hosted on our cloud servers effortlessly.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you acquire one of our semi-dedicated server packages, you’ll 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 Internet sites hosted in the semi-dedicated server hosting account, you can enable it with just a few mouse clicks. The content caching platform is perfect for any script-driven application such as WordPress, Joomla, or even a custom one, and based on your demands, you will be able to choose two separate things – how many Internet sites will use the Memcached caching platform, i.e. the number of instances; and how much content will be stored, in other words – the amount of system memory that the platform will use. The two things are not tied to each other, so if you’ve got a high-demand website with a lot of data, you can get one instance and a larger amount of system memory. The Memcached caching platform will increase the performance of your Internet sites shortly after you enable it and both you and your site visitors will enjoy faster loading times.
Memcached in VPS
Memcached comes by default with every virtual private server that we’re offering if you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel, so you won’t have to pay any extra money to be able to make the most of the full capacity of this distributed memory object caching system. The more powerful plan you pick, the more system memory Memcached will have for content storage purposes, but you’ll have at least several hundred megabytes all the time, which is much more than what you would get with a shared package. This will permit you to use Memcached for a lot of sites, regardless of how heavy they are, which in turn goes to say that you can use a lower-end plan for them without overloading your VPS server. The caching system is excellent for script-based software applications such as WordPress, OpenCart, Joomla or Mambo, and you can utilize it even with a custom-developed app. Shortly after you enable Memcached, it will start storing information and you’ll perceive the optimized performance of your websites.
Memcached in Dedicated Hosting
When you buy one of our Linux dedicated hosting services and if you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel during the order process, you will get the Memcached content caching platform as standard and you can enable it for each site that you host on your dedicated server without upgrading or installing anything. It will start storing information as users visit your Internet site, so you’ll see the results of using it shortly thereafter. The minimum amount of memory that will be available to the caching platform is 3 gigabytes and normally, the more powerful the dedicated plan, the more system memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will allow you to use the platform for a large number of websites or for a very heavy website without compromising its effectiveness. Memcached will permit you to increase the speed of any database-powered Internet site in no time – a Joomla portal, a WordPress online diary, an OpenCart e-shop, etcetera, and to optimize the overall performance of your dedicated machine.
