Memcached is a distributed memory object caching system, which has been gaining in popularity lately thanks to its effectiveness. It is used to cache requests and responses between a database and the application that’s using it, which can accelerate the overall performance of your website and lessen the created load substantially. Every time a webpage on an application-powered Internet site is accessed, the app connects to the database and "asks" what information should be shown, and then fetches it. With Memcached, these procedures are omitted, since the platform has already cached all the content that should be displayed on a certain web page. In case any data is edited, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ too, so the users will never see old content. Memcached is an excellent option for every Internet site that has numerous visitors, as it will make it amazingly fast and will enhance the user experience.
Memcached in Hosting
Memcached comes as an optional upgrade with each and every hosting account that we offer and in case you’d like to use it for any script-based site that you host on our leading-edge cloud platform, you will be able to add it in several simple steps via your Hepsia Control Panel. In the meantime, you will get the option to upgrade two separate features – the instances and the memory. The first one has to do with the number of the websites that can use the Memcached distributed memory 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 permitted to use to cache content, so for plenty of sites (or for one single resource-consuming site), you’d better get more memory for improved performance. The memory is available in increments of 16 MB and more memory can be added every time you need it. With the Memcached caching system, any script-driven website hosted on our cloud servers will load extra-fast.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can get Memcached as an upgrade with all our semi-dedicated services and since it works with any script-based application, you can use it for each Internet site that you host on our semi-dedicated servers, no matter what application you have used – WordPress, Mambo or Joomla, a custom-built application, etc. You can add the upgrade via the respective section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel from which you manage your semi-dedicated server account, and you can choose two separate features – the instances and the amount of system memory that they will use. To put it in simple terms, these things define how many sites will use the Memcached caching system and how much system memory the system will be able to use to cache your info. The two features are offered independently for more freedom and one instance does not come bundled with a particular amount of system memory. You can use Memcached with any sort of website and both you and the site visitors will swiftly detect the difference in the performance.
Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting
Memcached comes for free with all Linux dedicated web hosting that we offer and the only condition is that the dedicated server must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. You can use the memory caching system for any database-powered Internet site, including those based on popular web-based applications – for example, a WordPress online blog or a Joomla-driven community portal. Each server comes with a given amount of system memory that the Memcached caching system can use, but the minimum amount you’ll get is 3 GB, which is quite enough to speed up very heavy sites considerably, since this very memory will be dedicated to storing the cached information. The Memcached system will start caching content as soon as it’s activated, so soon after that, you will notice the optimized overall performance of your Internet sites and the decreased load. A lot of sites use the Memcached caching system to enhance their efficiency, including popular ones like Reddit and Wikipedia.
