A large number of users work with Memcached to boost database performance. What is Memcached?
Memcached is a distributed memory caching platform, which is used to optimize the loading speed of database-driven websites by caching the calls and the replies between the user and the server. Put simply, anytime a specific page on such a site is opened, the script connects to its database to get the information that should be shown to the visitor. In case the latter clicks on a link to open a different page, the whole process is executed again and this generates multiple database queries and high load on the server, particularly if the site has a lot of concurrent visitors. Memcached "remembers" this exchange of information, so if any of these web pages is visited again, the script no longer has to fetch any info from the database, as everything is delivered by the Memcached platform. Thus, the overall speed of your site will "soar" and you will get more satisfied visitors and they will be able to surf through your website faster. What’s more, the Memcached platform updates its cache whenever any info in the database is modified, so the website users will never see old content.
Memcached in Website Hosting
Memcached is available as an optional upgrade with each and every website hosting
account that we’re offering and in case you would like to use it for any script-based website that you host on our advanced cloud platform, you will be able to order it in several simple steps through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. In the meantime, you will get the option to upgrade two separate things – the instances and the system memory. The first one has to do with the number of the Internet sites that can use the Memcached caching system simultaneously, so if you need it for several Internet sites, you can get a handful of instances. The second one refers to the total amount of memory that the system will be able to use to cache info, so for many sites (or for one resource-requiring site), you should get more memory for better performance. The memory comes in increments of 16 MB and more memory can be ordered at any moment. With Memcached, each script-driven website hosted on our cloud servers will load incredibly fast.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you order any of our semi-dedicated server
packages, you’ll find Memcached as an optional upgrade in the Upgrades part of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so if you want to use it for any of the Internet sites hosted in your semi-dedicated account, you can add it with only a few clicks. The data caching platform is ideal for any script-based web application like Joomla™
, WordPress, or even a custom-made application, and depending on your demands, you’ll be able to choose two separate things – how many websites will use the Memcached platform, in other words – the number of instances; and how much info will be cached, i.e. the amount of memory that the platform will employ. The two things are not tied to each other, so if you have a popular site with lots of data, you can get one instance and a larger amount of system memory. Memcached will enhance the performance of your Internet sites soon after you enable it and both you and your website visitors will enjoy much better loading times.
Memcached in VPS Hosting
You will get Memcached with each of the virtual private server
packages that we offer when you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel and you’ll be able to activate the distributed memory object caching platform through the Control Panel section with the same name. The setup takes a couple of mouse clicks and you’ll see the difference in the performance of your websites almost instantly. The amount of memory that the Memcached caching platform can employ to store info depends on the given VPS plan that you’ve chosen, but at any rate it will not be less than several hundred megabytes, which is more than enough even for multiple resource-intensive websites. You can use the Memcached platform with websites based on Joomla™
, WordPress or any other web-based app and lower the load on your VPS server, which will enable you to continue using the current plan instead of moving to a more powerful one, since you simply won’t need it. Memcached is already being used by popular websites like Zynga, Wikipedia and Reddit, which is a proof of its effectiveness.
Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting
You can use the full potential of Memcached with each and every dedicated server
offered by our company in case you select Hepsia as your Control Panel. A section in it is dedicated to the caching system and you can begin using Memcached for any website hosted on the dedicated machine with only several mouse clicks. You can accelerate the performance of any site, irrespective of what script-driven web application you rely on or how large the website is, as the minimum amount of system memory that Memcached will be able to use is three gigabytes and this amount grows seriously with the higher-end dedicated servers. Soon after the system is enabled, it will start caching data anytime somebody visits your website, so, as soon as enough data has been cached, you will notice the decreased load on the server and the optimized performance of your website. Memcached is used by a lot of websites, among them famous portals like Zynga, Reddit and Wikipedia, which confirms the efficiency of the Memcached caching system.
