A large number of users work with Memcached so as to boost database performance. What actually is Memcached?
Memcached is a memory caching system, which has been gaining popularity lately because of its effectiveness. It’s used to cache queries and replies between a database and the app that’s using it, which can accelerate the overall performance of your website and decrease the created server load tremendously. Every time a web page on an application-driven website is visited, the app connects to the database and "asks" what information should be shown, and then drags it. With Memcached, these steps are skipped, as the platform has already cached all of the content that should show up on a certain web page. In case any data is updated, the Memcached content is updated too, so the visitors will never see old data. Memcached is an excellent solution for any site that entices plenty of viewers, as it will make it incredibly fast and will enhance the user experience.
Memcached in Hosting
You can use the Memcached distributed memory object caching system with all Linux hosting
offered by us. It’s offered as an upgrade, which you can obtain with only a couple of clicks of the mouse from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It needs a PHP extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud website hosting platform, so you can start using the Memcached caching system the moment you add it. The upgrade is separated into two parts, which will offer you more flexibility depending on the websites that you would like to use it for. The first one reveals the number of the sites that will use Memcached, or the so-called ‘instances’, while the second one refers to the memory, in other words – to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can order more system memory in increments of 16 MB and the more memory you have, the more content will be cached, which may be a pretty good idea for high-demand websites with very large databases and plenty of visitors. In this way, you can optimize the overall performance of every script-based website hosted on our servers with ease.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can add Memcached to any of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages
offered by us and make use of its full capacity for any script-driven Internet site hosted by us. The upgrade is accessible through the Hepsia Control Panel and you can select two features – the instances and the memory. These things show the number of the websites that can use the Memcached caching platform and the amount of memory that it will use to store your data. You can select them separately, since one instance is not linked to a particular amount of system memory, so you can use lots of memory for a single large website, for example. This feature is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order as much memory as you want. The Memcached platform can be used with any script-driven website regardless of its type, including those that are based on widespread apps like Joomla™
or WordPress, and lots of companies like Zynga and Wikipedia are already using it to accelerate the performance of their sites.
Memcached in VPS Hosting
Memcached is available as standard with all VPS hosting
ordered with our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The PHP extension it requires to perform correctly is compiled when the Virtual Private Server is set up, so you can begin using the content caching platform once your new virtual server is completely functional. The memory that Memcached can use depends on the given VPS plan, but even with the low-end plans, you will get several hundred megabytes that will be at your disposal for this platform exclusively. This will permit you to boost the performance of numerous websites hosted on the virtual server at the same time and to lower the load on the machine even if you run data-heavy script-powered sites with numerous visitors. The Memcached caching platform can be used with any script – Mambo, Drupal™
, or a custom-built one, and you will distinguish the better overall performance soon after you start using it.
Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting
When you acquire one of our dedicated servers hosting packages
and if you pick Hepsia as your website hosting Control Panel during the signup process, you will get the Memcached content caching platform as standard and you can activate it for any site that you host on the dedicated machine without installing or upgrading anything. It will begin storing information as users open your website, so you’ll see the results of using it shortly thereafter. The minimum amount of system memory that will be available to the caching platform is 3 GB and normally, the more powerful the dedicated package, the more system memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will enable you to take advantage of the caching platform for multiple Internet sites or for an extremely heavy website without compromising its efficacy. The Memcached platform will allow you to enhance the loading speed of any database-powered site very quickly – a Joomla™
portal, a WordPress personal diary, an OpenCart e-store, etc., and to improve the overall performance of your server.
