Memcached is a famous content caching system, which can increase the loading speed and the overall performance of your Internet sites tremendously if they use a database or an API. This is achieved by caching the calls to the API/database and the replies that are returned, so if someone conducts a search for a certain product on your website, for example, the database will not have to be accessed to display the results and the entire task will be executed notably quicker. That goes for all types of database-driven applications and not only for shopping portals, as anytime a specific page is visited, the application sends a database request to fetch the data that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your site open considerably faster, but it will also create much less load. If any data in the database is modified, the cached responses will also be ‘refreshed’, so the site visitors will not see any out-of-date information.
Memcached in Shared Hosting
You can use the Memcached distributed memory object caching system with all Linux shared hosting service that we offer. It’s available as an upgrade, which you can get with only a couple of clicks of the mouse via your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. It requires a PHP extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud web hosting platform, so you can start using the Memcached caching system as soon as you add it. The upgrade is divided into two parts, which will give you more flexibility depending on the websites that you want to use it for. The first part reveals the number of the Internet sites that will use Memcached, or the ‘instances’, whereas the second one refers to the system memory, in other words – to how much content the system will be able to cache. You can order more memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you have, the more data will be cached, which may be a pretty good idea for popular sites with large-sized databases and a lot of simultaneous visitors. Thus, you can increase the speed of every script-powered website hosted on our cloud servers with ease.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you decide to host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to take advantage of Memcached effortlessly, since the memory caching platform’s activation takes a few mouse clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The extension that it requires is already installed on our semi-dedicated servers, so you can start using the Memcached platform the moment you add it to your semi-dedicated server account. You’ll be able to select how many Internet sites can use it and how much info it will cache, in other words – there’re two different features that can be upgraded – the instances and the memory. You can order more of both, so if one of your sites becomes very popular, for example, you can always order more memory. Our system is incredibly flexible in this regard and we do not tie a specific number of instances to a fixed amount of memory. You can use Memcached to increase the speed of any script-powered Internet site, including those based on widely used web apps, such as WordPress or Joomla.
Memcached in VPS Servers
You will get Memcached with each of the VPS server packages offered by our company if you select Hepsia as your Control Panel and you will be able to activate the distributed memory caching platform via the section with the exact same name. The configuration takes several clicks of the mouse and you’ll distinguish the difference in the performance of your Internet sites almost instantly. The amount of system memory that the Memcached platform can take advantage of to store info depends on the given Virtual Private Server hosting plan that you’ve chosen, but at any rate it won’t be less than several hundred megabytes, which is quite enough even for multiple resource-consuming websites. You can use Memcached with Internet sites powered by Joomla, WordPress or any other web application and reduce the load on your Virtual Private Server, which will permit you to keep using the current Virtual Private Server package instead of switching to a more powerful one, since you will simply not need it. Memcached is already being used by famous websites such as Zynga, Reddit and Wikipedia, which is an evidence of its efficacy.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers
Each dedicated server that is ordered with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel comes with Memcached already installed by default, so you can start using the distributed memory caching system the moment your dedicated server is assembled, without having to upgrade or install anything. The amount of memory that Memcached can employ depends on the server that you’ve picked, but since our servers are exceptionally powerful and due to the fact that it’s likely that you will host resource-demanding sites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the caching system can use will be 3 GB. This will permit you to enhance the overall performance of very large Internet sites without any effort and you will detect the difference shortly after Memcached starts caching database requests. You can make the most of the system with any database-driven web page, including those based on popular Content Management Systems such as Joomla and WordPress.
