Discover what Memcached is and precisely why more and more people use it for their databases.
Memcached is a caching platform, which has been gaining popularity lately due to its effectiveness. It is used to cache queries and responses between a database and the application that’s using it, which can enhance the overall performance of your website and lessen the produced load considerably. Every time a webpage on an application-driven website is opened, the application connects to the database and "asks" what information should be displayed, and then drags it. With Memcached, these steps are skipped, as the platform has already cached the content that should appear on a given page. When any data is updated, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ too, so the website visitors will never see out-of-date data. The Memcached platform is an ideal choice for any website that draws plenty of viewers, since it will make it astonishingly fast and will improve the user experience.
Memcached in Cloud Hosting
Memcached is offered as an upgrade with each cloud hosting
plan offered by us and if you want to use it for any script-based Internet site that you host on our innovative cloud hosting platform, you will be able to order it in several simple steps through your Hepsia Control Panel. In the meantime, you will be offered the option to upgrade two separate features – the instances and the system memory. The first one is related to the number of the websites that can use the Memcached content caching system at the same time, so if you need it for several sites, you can get a handful of instances. The second one has to do with the maximum amount of memory that the system will be allowed to use in order to cache information, so for lots of websites (or for one single resource-consuming site), you should get more memory for better performance. The memory is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be added at any moment. With the Memcached caching system, each script-powered Internet site hosted on our servers will load extremely fast.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you decide to host your websites in a semi-dedicated server
account, you can take advantage of Memcached with ease, since the distributed memory object caching platform’s activation requires a couple of clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. The PHP extension that is required is pre-installed on our semi-dedicated servers, so you can begin using the Memcached caching platform the moment you add it to your semi-dedicated server account. You will be able to select how many websites can use it and how much info it will cache, i.e. there’re two different features that can be upgraded – the instances and the amount of memory. You can add more of both, so if one of your Internet sites becomes very popular, for example, you can always add more memory to it. Our system is very flexible in this regard and we do not bind a specific number of instances to a pre-defined amount of system memory. You can take advantage of Memcached to increase the loading speed of any script-driven Internet site, including those based on popular Internet apps, such as WordPress or Joomla™
Memcached in Dedicated Servers
Memcached comes free of charge with all dedicated servers
offered by our company and the sole requirement is that the dedicated server must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can use the distributed memory caching system for any database-powered site, including those based on widely used Internet applications – for instance, a WordPress personal weblog or a Joomla™
-driven community web portal. Each dedicated machine comes with a certain amount of memory that the Memcached system can use, but the minimum you will get is three gigabytes, which is quite enough to boost the speed of very popular sites seriously, since this memory will be dedicated to storing the cached info. The Memcached system will start caching info once it’s activated, so shortly after that, you’ll notice the optimized overall performance of your Internet sites and the lowered server load. Many websites use Memcached to improve their effectiveness, including famous ones such as Wikipedia and Reddit.
