An increasing number of users work with Memcached to increase database performance. What actually is Memcached?
Memcached is an object caching platform, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years due to its efficiency. It is used to cache calls and responses between a database and the application that uses it, which can boost the performance of your Internet site and lessen the created server load greatly. Anytime a page on an app-powered site is accessed, the application connects to the database and "asks" what information should be displayed, and then extracts it. With Memcached, these procedures are skipped, as the platform has already cached all of the content that should be displayed on a certain page. In case any data is edited, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ too, so the visitors will never end up seeing out-of-date content. Memcached is an ideal choice for every Internet site that draws lots of visitors, since it will make it lightning-fast and will improve the overall user experience.
Memcached in Cloud Website Hosting
You can use the Memcached content caching system with all cloud website hosting plans
offered by our company. It’s offered as an upgrade, which you can acquire with just a few clicks of the mouse through your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. It needs a PHP extension, which is already installed on our cloud website hosting platform, so you can begin using the Memcached caching system as soon as you add it. The upgrade is separated into two parts, which will offer you more flexibility depending on the websites that you want to use it for. The first one determines the number of the sites that will use the Memcached caching system, or the ‘instances’, whereas the second one is related to the system memory, i.e. to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can get more memory in increments of 16 MB and the more memory you have added, the more content will be cached, which may be a good idea for high-demand sites with large-sized databases and plenty of simultaneous visitors. In this way, you can improve the performance of any script-based site hosted on our cloud servers with ease.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you acquire any of our semi-dedicated server
packages, you’ll find Memcached as an optional upgrade in the Upgrades section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so if you’d like to use it for any of the websites hosted in the semi-dedicated server hosting account, you can enable it with only a couple of clicks of the mouse. The memory caching platform is suitable for any script-driven web application like WordPress, Joomla™
, or even an in-house built app, and depending on your requirements, you’ll be able to choose two separate things – how many websites will use Memcached, in other words – the number of instances; and how much information will be stored, i.e. the amount of system memory that the platform will employ. The two things are not bound to each other, so if you own a traffic-consuming site with a lot of content, you can get one instance and a large amount of system memory. The Memcached caching platform will optimize the overall performance of your Internet sites soon after you enable it and both you and your visitors will enjoy much faster load times.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers
Memcached comes free of charge with all dedicated web hosting plans
that we’re offering and the one and only condition is that the dedicated server must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. You can use the content caching system for any database-driven site, including those that are based on famous web applications – for example, a WordPress personal weblog or a Joomla™
-driven social networking website. Each dedicated server comes with a given amount of system memory that Memcached can use, but the minimum amount you’ll get is 3 GB, which is quite enough to accelerate the loading speed of extremely popular websites seriously, since this memory will be dedicated to storing the cached information. The system will begin storing data as soon as it is enabled, so soon after that, you’ll detect the improved performance of your Internet sites and the lowered load on the dedicated server. A lot of Internet sites use the Memcached caching system to enhance their effectiveness, including famous ones such as Reddit and Wikipedia.
