Memcached is a commonly used distributed memory object caching system, which can accelerate the speed and the overall performance of your sites substantially in case they use a database or an API. This is accomplished by caching the requests to the database/API and the replies that are returned, so when someone conducts a search for a given product on your website, for instance, the database won’t have to be accessed to return the results and the entire procedure will be completed significantly faster. This is valid for all sorts of database-driven applications and not only for Internet shops, as anytime a specific web page is opened, the app sends a query to its database to get the data that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your site open noticeably faster, but it will also create much less server load. If any content in the database is changed, the cached replies will also be ‘refreshed’, so the users won’t see any out-of-date info.
Memcached in Hosting
You can use the Memcached memory caching system with all hosting services that we’re offering. It is offered as an optional upgrade, which you can activate with only a couple of clicks through your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. It needs an extension, which is already installed on our cloud website hosting platform, so you can begin using Memcached as soon as you order it. The upgrade is separated into two parts, which will offer you more versatility depending on the websites that you want to use it for. The first one indicates the number of the websites that will use the Memcached caching system, or the so-called ‘instances’, whereas the second one refers to the system memory, in other words – to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can add more system memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you’ve got, the more data will be cached, which may be a very good idea for high-demand websites with large-size databases and a lot of visitors. Thus, you can accelerate the loading speed of every script-based website hosted on our servers with no effort.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you obtain any of our semi-dedicated server packages, you will find Memcached as an optional upgrade in the Upgrades section of your Hepsia Control Panel, so if you would like to use it for any of the websites hosted in the account, you can add it with just a few clicks of the mouse. The platform is ideal for any script-based web app such as WordPress, Joomla, or even a tailor-made app, and based on your demands, you will be able to select two different features – how many sites will use Memcached, i.e. the number of instances; and how much info will be cached, in other words – the amount of memory that the platform will use. The two features are not bound to each other, so if you run a traffic-heavy Internet site with lots of data, you can order one instance and a larger amount of system memory. The Memcached caching platform will improve the overall performance of your Internet sites shortly after you enable it and both you and your site visitors will enjoy better loading speeds.
Memcached in VPS Web Hosting
If you get a virtual private server from us, you’ll be able to use Memcached at no extra charge, as the memory caching platform comes with all VPSs ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. Even if you own heavy sites, you can boost their performance with ease and the reduced load on your virtual machine will allow you to keep using your current Virtual Private Server plan instead of upgrading to a more powerful one. The amount of system memory that the Memcached platform can use to store information depends on the plan that you’re using, but even with a less powerful one, you’ll have at least several hundred MB, which is considerably more than the amount of memory you’d get with a shared package, so the website performance boost will be tremendous. You can take advantage of Memcached with any database-powered web application, regardless of whether you’ve set it up on your own or you’re using a ready-to-use one like Joomla, WordPress or OpenCart.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting
You can unlock the full potential of Memcached with every dedicated server that we offer in case you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. A special Control Panel section is dedicated to the distributed memory object caching system and you can start using Memcached for any site hosted on the dedicated server with only several clicks of the mouse. You can enhance the performance of any Internet site, no matter what script-powered web application you’re using or how busy the site is, as the minimum amount of system memory that Memcached will be able to use is 3 gigabytes and this amount increases tremendously with the higher-end dedicated servers. Soon after the caching system is enabled, it will start caching information every time someone accesses your website, so, as soon as enough data has been stored, you’ll notice the reduced load on your dedicated machine and the optimized performance of your site. The Memcached system is being used by numerous sites, among them famous portals like Reddit, Wikipedia and Zynga, which shows the efficiency of the Memcached caching system.
