Memcached is a widespread distributed memory caching system, which can accelerate the speed and the performance of your Internet sites substantially in case they use a database or an API. This is achieved by caching the calls to the database/API and the responses that are returned, so when a user conducts a search for some product on your site, for instance, the database won’t have to be accessed to show the results and the whole operation will be completed notably quicker. This is valid for all kinds of database-driven applications and not only for e-shops, since anytime a page is accessed, the app sends a database request to fetch the content that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your website open considerably faster, but it will also produce much less load. If any data in the database is edited, the cached replies will also be updated, so the visitors will not see any out-of-date information.
Memcached in Cloud Web Hosting
When you host script-driven websites in a cloud web hosting account with us, you’ll be able to add the Memcached data caching system to your plan with only a few mouse clicks via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantaneously and, since the needed extension is pre-installed on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform, you can start using it straight away. To give you more flexibility, we offer two separate upgrades related to the number of instances (in other words – how many sites will use Memcached) and to the system memory that the Memcached caching system will use. The latter is available in increments of 16 megabytes and you can add memory as many times as you wish. Naturally, the more memory Memcached is allowed to use, the more data it will cache, so in case you run a traffic-intensive website with lots of data, you may need more memory so as to be able to make the most of the power that Memcached can give you.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can add the Memcached object caching platform to any of the Linux semi-dedicated packages that we’re offering and use its full capacity for any script-driven Internet site hosted on our servers. The upgrade is available through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can choose two things – the number of instances and the amount of memory. These things specify the number of the sites that can use the Memcached platform and how much system memory it will use to cache your info. You can choose them independently, since a given instance is not bound to a fixed amount of system memory, so you can use lots of memory for a single busy website, for example. This upgrade comes in increments of 16 megabytes and you can get as much memory as you want. The platform can be used with any script-driven website regardless of its type, including those based on popular web-based applications like Joomla, Drupal or WordPress, and many companies like Wikipedia and Zynga are already using it to improve the speed of their websites.
Memcached in VPS Web Hosting
You’ll get Memcached with each of the virtual private server packages that we’re offering if you select Hepsia as your Control Panel and you’ll be able to activate the caching platform via the section with the very same name. The activation takes several mouse clicks and you will distinguish the difference in the performance of your websites almost instantly. The amount of memory that the Memcached platform can take advantage of to cache information depends on the given Virtual Private Server package that you’ve selected, but at any rate it won’t be less than several hundred MB, which is quite enough even for several resource-requiring Internet sites. You can use Memcached with Internet sites driven by WordPress, Joomla or any other web-based application and reduce the load on your VPS server, which will permit you to continue using the current Virtual Private Server hosting package rather than upgrading to a more powerful one, as you simply won’t need it. The Memcached platform is already being used by popular websites such as Reddit, Wikipedia and Zynga, which demonstrates its efficacy.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting
When you order one of our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages and if you pick Hepsia as your web hosting Control Panel on the order form, you’ll get the Memcached distributed memory object caching platform as standard and you can activate it for any website that you host on your dedicated machine without installing or upgrading anything. It will start caching content as users open your site, so you’ll notice the results of using it shortly thereafter. The minimum amount of memory that will be available to the Memcached platform is 3 gigabytes and naturally, the more powerful the plan, the more memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will permit you to take advantage of the platform for plenty of websites or for an extremely popular site without weakening its efficacy. The Memcached platform will enable you to enhance the load speed of any database-driven Internet site very quickly – a Joomla portal, a WordPress personal blog, an OpenCart store, etcetera, and to optimize the overall performance of your dedicated machine.
