Learn what Memcached is and why more and more people utilize it for their databases.
Memcached is a content caching platform, which has been gaining popularity in recent years owing to its efficiency. It is used to cache requests and responses between a database and the application that’s using it, which can improve the overall performance of your website and reduce the produced server load greatly. Anytime a webpage on an application-powered Internet site is opened, the application connects to the database and "asks" what information should be shown, and then drags it. With Memcached, these procedures are skipped, since the platform has already cached all the content that should appear on a given page. If any data is modified, the Memcached content is updated as well, so the site visitors will never see old data. The Memcached platform is an excellent option for every website that draws numerous viewers, as it will make it faster than the blink of an eye and will enhance the overall user experience.
Memcached in Cloud Hosting
If you host script-driven websites in a cloud hosting
account with our company, you will be able to add the Memcached caching system to your plan with just a few mouse clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantly and, since the extension needed for it is pre-installed on our cutting-edge cloud platform, you can begin using it straight away. To give you more flexibility, we offer two different upgrades related to the number of instances (i.e. how many Internet sites will use Memcached) and to the amount of memory that the Memcached caching system will use. The latter is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order as much memory as you wish. Naturally, the more memory the Memcached caching system is allowed to use, the more data it will cache, so in case you have a regularly visited site with a lot of data, you may require more memory in order to be able to make the most of the power that Memcached can give you.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can add the Memcached distributed memory object caching platform to any of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages
offered by our company and use its full potential for any script-powered website hosted on our servers. The upgrade is offered through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can select two things – the instances and the amount of memory. These things define how many sites can use Memcached and how much memory it will use to store your information. You can choose them separately, since one instance is not bound to a specific amount of memory, so you can use lots of memory for a single traffic-intensive website, for example. This upgrade is available in increments of 16 megabytes and you can get as much memory as you want. The platform can be used with any script-powered site irrespective of its nature, including those that are based on widespread web-based apps like Drupal™
, WordPress or Joomla™
, and a lot of companies like Wikipedia and Zynga are already using it to enhance the overall performance of their sites.
Memcached in Dedicated Hosting
If you purchase one of our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages
and if you pick Hepsia as your web hosting Control Panel at signup, you will get the Memcached distributed memory caching platform as standard and you can enable it for any website that you host on your dedicated machine without installing or upgrading anything. It will begin storing data as users access your site, so you will see the effects of using it soon after that. The minimum amount of system memory that will be available to the caching platform is three gigabytes and normally, the more powerful the dedicated package, the more memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will enable you to use the caching platform for plenty of sites or for a very large Internet site without weakening its efficacy. The Memcached platform will permit you to speed up any database-powered website in no time – a Joomla™
portal, a WordPress online diary, an OpenCart e-shop, etc., and to optimize the performance of your server.
