A large number of users work with Memcached in order to enhance database performance. What is Memcached?
Memcached is a data caching system, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years thanks to its effectiveness. It’s used to cache queries and responses between a database and the app that’s using it, which can enhance the overall performance of your website and decrease the generated server load tremendously. Every time a web page on an application-driven Internet site is opened, the application connects to the database and "asks" what info should be displayed, and then pulls it. With Memcached, these procedures are omitted, since the platform has already cached the content that should be shown on a particular webpage. When any data is changed, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ too, so the visitors will never see out-of-date content. The platform is an ideal choice for any Internet site that draws a lot of viewers, as it will make it faster than the speed of sound and will improve the user experience.
Memcached in Shared Web Hosting
You can take advantage of the Memcached distributed memory caching system with all Linux shared web hosting services
offered by our company. It’s available as an optional upgrade, which you can order with only a few mouse clicks through your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. It requires a PHP extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud hosting platform, so you can start using Memcached the moment you add it. The upgrade is separated into two parts, which will offer you more freedom depending on the Internet sites that you’d like to use it for. The first part reveals the number of the sites that will use Memcached, or the ‘instances’, while the second one is related to the system memory, i.e. to how much content the system will be able to cache. You can add more memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you have ordered, the more data will be cached, which may be a rather good idea for high-demand sites with large-size databases and numerous simultaneous visitors. Thus, you can boost the overall performance of every script-based website hosted on our cloud servers with no effort.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can add the Memcached object caching platform to any of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting services
that we’re offering and use its full capacity for any script-driven Internet site hosted by us. The upgrade is accessible through the Hepsia Control Panel and you can choose two features – the number of instances and the amount of memory. These things specify the number of the websites that can use the Memcached platform and the amount of memory that it will use to cache your data. You can choose them independently, since one instance is not bound to a particular amount of memory, so you can use a lot of memory for a single resource-heavy website, for example. This feature is offered in increments of 16 MB and you can get as much memory as you want. The Memcached platform can be used with any script-powered website regardless of its nature, including those based on popular software applications like WordPress, Joomla™
, and a lot of companies like Wikipedia and Zynga are already using it to improve the speed of their websites.
Memcached in VPS Web Hosting
When you order a virtual private server
from our company, you will be able to use Memcached at no extra price, as the caching platform is available with all Virtual Private Servers that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. Even if you manage content-rich websites, you will be able to improve their performance with no effort and the reduced load on the VPS server will allow you to keep using your current Virtual Private Server hosting package rather than upgrading to a more powerful one. The amount of system memory that the Memcached caching platform can use to cache data depends on the package that you are using, but even with a less powerful one, you’ll get no less than several hundred MB, which is considerably more than the amount of memory you’d get with a shared web hosting plan, so the website performance boost will be immense. You can use Memcached with any database-driven web application, no matter if you’ve built it yourself or you are using a ready-to-use one like OpenCart, WordPress or Joomla™
Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting
Memcached is available free of charge with all dedicated hosting services
offered by us and the sole requirement is that the dedicated machine must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can use the object caching system for any database-powered website, including those based on famous Internet apps – for instance, a WordPress personal journal or a Joomla™
-driven community site. Each server comes with a certain amount of memory that the Memcached system can employ, but the minimum you will get is 3 GB, which is quite enough to boost the loading speed of extremely busy sites immensely, as this very memory will be dedicated to storing the cached content. The system will begin storing info once it is enabled, so soon thereafter, you will see the enhanced overall performance of your Internet sites and the decreased load on the dedicated server. Many sites use the Memcached caching system to boost their effectiveness, among them famous ones like Wikipedia and Reddit.
