Memcached is a widespread memory caching platform, which can increase the loading speed and the performance of your Internet sites greatly in case they use a database or an API. This is accomplished by caching the requests to the API/database and the responses that are delivered, so if someone conducts a search for a given product on your site, for example, the database will not have to be accessed to show the results and the whole operation will be executed notably faster. This is valid for all types of database-powered applications and not only for web shops, since every time a specific page is visited, the application sends a request to its database to get the content that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your website load much faster, but it will also create much less load. If any data in the database is updated, the cached responses will also be updated, so the site visitors will not see any out-of-date info.
Memcached in Web Hosting
If you host script-based websites in a web hosting account with us, you can add the Memcached distributed memory object caching system to your web hosting package with only a few clicks of the mouse via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantaneously and, since the PHP extension needed for it is pre-installed on our leading-edge cloud platform, you can begin using it straight away. To give you more flexibility, we offer two separate upgrades related to the number of instances (i.e. how many websites will use Memcached) and to the amount of system memory that the Memcached caching system will use. The latter is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and you can add as much memory as you like. Logically, the more memory the Memcached caching system is permitted to use, the more content it will cache, so if you’ve got a high-traffic site with a lot of data, you may need more memory so as to be able to take full advantage of the power that Memcached can give you.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you purchase any of our semi-dedicated server plans, you’ll find Memcached as an optional upgrade in the Upgrades section of your Hepsia Control Panel, so if you wish to use it for any of the sites hosted in the account, you can add it with just a few clicks of the mouse. The object caching platform is suitable for any script-driven web app such as WordPress, Joomla, or even a custom-developed one, and based on your requirements, you’ll be able to choose two different features – how many websites will use Memcached, in other words – the number of instances; and how much content will be stored, in other words – the amount of memory that the platform will employ. The two things are not bound to each other, so if you’ve got a traffic-intensive website with lots of content, you can get one instance and a larger amount of system memory. Memcached will boost the performance of your Internet sites shortly after you activate it and both you and your visitors will enjoy much faster load times.
Memcached in VPS Servers
If you acquire a VPS server from us, you’ll be able to use Memcached at no extra price, as the memory caching platform comes with all Virtual Private Servers ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. Even if you own resource-hungry sites, you’ll be able to increase their overall performance effortlessly and the lowered load on the Virtual Private Server will permit you to keep using your current package instead of upgrading to a more powerful one. The amount of system memory that the Memcached caching platform can use to cache content depends on the plan that you are using, but even with a low-end one, you’ll get at least several hundred megabytes, which is considerably more than what you’d get with a shared web hosting plan, so the website performance boost will be substantial. You can use the Memcached platform with any database-driven web application, regardless of whether you’ve written it yourself or you’re using a ready-for-use one like OpenCart, Joomla or WordPress.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers
You can make use of the full potential of Memcached with each and every dedicated server that we offer if you select Hepsia as your Control Panel. A section in it is dedicated to the object caching system and you can begin using Memcached for any site hosted on the dedicated server with only a few mouse clicks. You can boost the overall performance of any Internet site, no matter what script-driven application you rely on or how large the website is, as the minimum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to use is 3 gigabytes and this amount increases substantially with the more powerful servers. Shortly after the system is activated, it will begin caching information each time someone opens your website, so, as soon as sufficient content has been cached, you will see the reduced load on your server and the improved overall performance of the Internet site. The Memcached system is used by lots of websites, among them famous portals such as Wikipedia, Zynga and Reddit, which shows the effectiveness of the Memcached system.
