Find out what Memcached is and precisely why a great number of use it for their databases.
Memcached is a memory caching system, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years because of its efficiency. It is used to cache calls and responses between a database and the application that is using it, which can increase the overall performance of your site and reduce the produced server load greatly. Anytime a webpage on an app-driven website is visited, the app connects to the database and "asks" what info should be displayed, and then pulls it. With Memcached, these procedures are skipped, since the platform has already cached all the content that should show up on a certain page. In case any data is updated, the Memcached content is updated too, so the website visitors will never see old content. The platform is a perfect solution for every Internet site that attracts lots of viewers, since it will make it faster than the speed of light and will improve the overall user experience.
Memcached in Cloud Hosting
You can take advantage of the Memcached data caching system with all cloud plans
that we are offering. It is available as an optional upgrade, which you can acquire with only a few clicks of the mouse via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It needs an extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud web hosting platform, so you can begin using the Memcached caching system once you order it. The upgrade is separated into two parts, which will offer you more flexibility depending on the sites that you’d like to use it for. The first part concerns the number of the sites that will use Memcached, or the so-called ‘instances’, while the second one is related to the memory, in other words – to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can get more system memory in increments of 16 MB and the more memory you have added, the more content will be cached, which may be a very good idea for busy websites with very large databases and many simultaneous visitors. Thus, you can enhance the overall performance of every script-based site hosted on our servers effortlessly.
Memcached in VPS Servers
You’ll get Memcached with each of the VPS server
plans offered by us when you select Hepsia as your Control Panel and you’ll be able to activate the data caching platform via the section with the same name. The activation takes several clicks of the mouse and you’ll detect the difference in the performance of your sites almost instantly. The amount of system memory that Memcached can employ to cache info depends on the particular Virtual Private Server hosting plan that you have selected, but in any case it will be at least several hundred MB, which is more than enough even for multiple resource-hungry websites. You can use the Memcached platform with sites powered by Joomla™
, WordPress or any other web app and decrease the load on your virtual server, which will allow you to continue using the current Virtual Private Server hosting plan rather than migrating to a more powerful one, since you simply won’t need it. The Memcached platform is already being used by popular websites like Reddit, Wikipedia and Zynga, which is an evidence of its efficacy.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers
You can make use of the full potential of Memcached with every dedicated server
that we are offering in case you select Hepsia as your Control Panel. A special Control Panel section is dedicated to the data caching system and you can begin using Memcached for any Internet site hosted on the machine with just a couple of mouse clicks. You can optimize the overall performance of any Internet site, irrespective of what script-based software application you rely on or how large the site is, as the minimum amount of system memory that Memcached will be able to use is three gigabytes and this amount grows considerably with the more powerful servers. Shortly after the system is activated, it will start caching content each time someone opens your website, so, once enough info has been stored, you will perceive the lowered load and the improved overall performance of the website. The Memcached caching system is being used by a lot of websites, among them popular portals like Zynga, Wikipedia and Reddit, which shows the effectiveness of the Memcached system.
