Memcached is a widely used content caching system, which can boost the speed and the overall performance of your websites significantly in case they use a database or an API. This is accomplished by caching the calls to the database/API and the responses that are delivered, so if somebody searches for a specific product on your site, for example, the database will not have to be accessed to show the results and the entire task will be executed notably quicker. That goes for all sorts of database-driven apps and not only for e-stores, as anytime a given page is visited, the application connects to its database to get the content that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your website open noticeably faster, but it will also produce much less load. If any content in the database is edited, the cached responses will also be ‘refreshed’, so the website visitors won’t see any old info.
Memcached in Cloud Web Hosting
If you host script-driven websites in a cloud web hosting account with our company, you’ll be able to add the Memcached distributed memory caching system to your hosting package with only a couple of clicks of the mouse from your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available immediately and, since the required extension is pre-installed on our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform, you can start using it right away. To give you more versatility, we offer two separate upgrades related to the number of instances (i.e. how many Internet sites will use Memcached) and to the amount of system memory that Memcached will use. The latter is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and you can add memory as many times as you like. Logically, the more memory the Memcached caching system is permitted to use, the more content it will cache, so if you manage a popular website with a lot of data, you may need more memory so as to be able to make full use of the power that Memcached can give you.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you decide to host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to take advantage of Memcached easily, as the platform’s setup takes a few mouse clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The extension that it requires is pre-installed on our semi-dedicated servers, so you can start using Memcached as soon as you add it to your semi-dedicated server account. You will be able to choose how many websites can use it and how much info it will cache, in other words – there’re two separate features that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the system memory. You can get more of both, so if one of your websites becomes very popular, for instance, you can always get more memory. Our system is exceptionally flexible in this regard and we do not bind a particular number of instances to a pre-defined amount of system memory. You can use Memcached to increase the speed of any script-powered website, including those that are based on famous web-based apps, such as Joomla or WordPress.
Memcached in VPS Web Hosting
You’ll get Memcached with any of the virtual private server packages that we are offering if you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel and you will be able to activate the object caching platform through the Control Panel section with the very same name. The setup requires a couple of mouse clicks and you will detect the difference in the performance of your websites almost instantly. The amount of system memory that the Memcached platform can take advantage of to cache information depends on the particular Virtual Private Server hosting plan that you have picked, but at any rate it will not be less than several hundred megabytes, which is more than enough even for multiple content-heavy websites. You can use Memcached with Internet sites powered by WordPress, Joomla or any other Internet application and lower the load on your Virtual Private Server, which will allow you to continue using the current Virtual Private Server package rather than migrating to a more powerful one, as you simply won’t need it. The Memcached platform is already being used by famous websites like Reddit, Wikipedia and Zynga, which verifies its efficiency.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting
Memcached comes for free with all Linux dedicated servers hosting that we are offering and the one and only requirement is that the dedicated server must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can use the caching system for any database-driven site, including those based on popular Internet apps – for instance, a WordPress personal weblog or a Joomla-driven community portal. Each server comes with a certain amount of memory that the Memcached caching system can use, but the minimum you’ll get is 3 gigabytes, which is quite enough to improve the speed of very popular sites immensely, as this memory will be dedicated to storing the cached content. The Memcached system will begin storing content once it is activated, so soon after that, you’ll observe the enhanced performance of your sites and the decreased load on the dedicated machine. Numerous sites use the Memcached system to enhance their efficiency, among them famous ones such as Reddit and Wikipedia.
