Memcached is a commonly used data caching system, which can boost the speed and the performance of your Internet sites drastically if they use a database or an API. This is accomplished by caching the calls to the API/database and the responses that are returned, so if a client searches for a particular product on your Internet site, for instance, the database will not have to be accessed to return the results and the entire operation will be executed significantly quicker. This is valid for all types of database-driven applications and not only for online stores, since anytime a given web page is visited, the app sends a request to its database to fetch the content that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your website open much faster, but it will also produce much less server load. If any content in the database is modified, the cached replies will also be ‘refreshed’, so the users will not see any old information.
Memcached in Shared Website Hosting
Memcached is available as an upgrade with each and every shared website hosting package that we offer and in case you would like to use it for any script-driven website that you host on our advanced cloud hosting platform, you’ll be able to enable it in a few easy steps via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. In the meantime, you’ll get the option to upgrade two different things – the instances and the memory. The first one has to do with the number of the sites that can use the Memcached content caching system at the same time, so if you need it for several websites, you can order a handful of instances. The second one refers to the maximum amount of memory that the system will be permitted to use to cache data, so for a lot of websites (or for one single large-sized site), you may want to order more memory for better results. The memory is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be ordered every time you need it. With Memcached, any script-powered Internet site hosted on our cloud servers will load extremely fast.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can add the Memcached distributed memory object caching platform to any of the Linux semi-dedicated servers that we’re offering and use its full potential for any script-driven site hosted on our servers. The upgrade is offered through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can select two things – the number of instances and the amount of memory. These things determine how many websites can use Memcached and how much system memory it will use to store your content. You can select them separately, since a given instance is not linked to a fixed amount of memory, so you can use lots of memory for one resource-requiring Internet site, for example. This upgrade is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and you can get as much memory as you wish. The platform can be used with any script-powered website irrespective of its type, including those that are based on widely used web-based apps like Joomla, Drupal or WordPress, and many companies like Wikipedia and Zynga are already using it to increase the performance of their websites.
Memcached in VPS Servers
You’ll get Memcached with each of the VPS server packages that we are offering when you select Hepsia as your Control Panel and you will be able to activate the distributed memory caching platform via the Control Panel section with the same name. The setup requires a couple of mouse clicks and you’ll distinguish the difference in the overall performance of your Internet sites almost momentarily. The amount of system memory that the Memcached caching platform can employ to store information depends on the given Virtual Private Server plan that you’ve selected, but in any case it will not be less than several hundred megabytes, which is quite enough even for several traffic-consuming Internet sites. You can use Memcached with websites powered by WordPress, Joomla or any other web application and reduce the load on your virtual server, which will enable you to keep using the current Virtual Private Server plan instead of switching to a more powerful one, since you simply won’t need it. The Memcached platform is already being used by famous websites such as Reddit, Wikipedia and Zynga, which verifies its efficacy.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers
When you obtain any of our dedicated servers and if you select Hepsia as your web hosting Control Panel during the signup procedure, you’ll get the Memcached distributed memory caching platform as standard and you can use it with each Internet site that you host on the server without installing or upgrading anything. It will begin storing content as users open your Internet site, so you will notice the result of using it shortly thereafter. The minimum amount of memory that will be available to the caching platform is 3 gigabytes and naturally, the more powerful the dedicated package, the more memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will allow you to use the platform for plenty of Internet sites or for an extremely popular Internet site without compromising its efficacy. The Memcached platform will permit you to boost the loading speed of any database-driven site very quickly – a Joomla portal, a WordPress online diary, an OpenCart e-shop, etcetera, and to optimize the overall performance of your server.
