Memcached is a widespread distributed memory object caching system, which can improve the loading speed and the overall performance of your websites immensely in case they use a database or an API. This is accomplished by caching the requests to the API/database and the replies that are delivered, so when a customer searches for a given product on your website, for example, the database won’t have to be accessed to display the results and the entire procedure will be completed noticeably faster. This goes for all types of database-driven apps and not only for shopping portals, as anytime a web page is visited, the application connects to its database to fetch the content that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your website load significantly faster, but it will also generate much less load. If any data in the database is updated, the cached replies will also be ‘refreshed’, so the website visitors won’t see any out-of-date information.
Memcached in Cloud Website Hosting
When you host script-driven websites in a cloud website hosting account with us, you’ll be able to add the Memcached object caching system to your shared hosting plan with only a few mouse clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available momentarily and, since the PHP extension required for it is already installed on our advanced cloud website hosting platform, you can start using it straight away. To give you more versatility, we offer two different upgrades related to the number of instances (in other words – how many websites will use Memcached) and to the memory that Memcached will use. The latter comes in increments of 16 MB and you can add as much memory as you want. Logically, the more memory the Memcached caching system is permitted to use, the more content it will cache, so in case you’ve got a frequently visited site with a lot of data, you may require more memory so as to be able to make the most of the power that Memcached can offer you.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can add the Memcached data caching platform to any of the Linux semi-dedicated packages offered by us and use its full potential for any script-driven site hosted on our servers. The upgrade is accessible through the Hepsia Control Panel and you can select two things – the number of instances and the amount of memory. These things specify how many websites can use the Memcached platform and the amount of system memory that it will use to cache your information. You can choose them separately, since one instance is not linked to a particular amount of system memory, so you can use a lot of memory for a single resource-requiring Internet site, for instance. This upgrade is available in increments of 16 megabytes and you can get as much memory as you wish. The platform can be used with any script-driven site regardless of its type, including those that are based on widely used web apps like WordPress, Drupal or Joomla, and lots of companies such as Wikipedia and Zynga are already using it to boost the performance of their websites.
Memcached in VPS Hosting
Memcached comes by default with each and every virtual private server that we’re offering provided that you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel, so you will not need to pay any extra money to be able to use the maximum potential of this memory caching system. The more powerful plan you choose, the more memory Memcached will have for content caching purposes, but you will have no less than several hundred megabytes at all times, which is much more than what you’d get with a shared web hosting plan. This will allow you to use Memcached for numerous Internet sites, regardless of how popular they are, which in turn goes to say that you can use a less powerful package for them without overloading the virtual server. The caching system is excellent for script-driven applications such as OpenCart, Joomla, WordPress or Mambo, and you can utilize it even with a custom-built app. Shortly after you activate the Memcached system, it will start storing data and you will note the improved overall performance of your sites.
Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting
Each dedicated server ordered with our Hepsia Control Panel comes with Memcached pre-installed by default, so you can start using the memory caching system as soon as the server is assembled, without needing to install or upgrade anything. The amount of memory that Memcached can use depends on the server that you’ve picked, but since our servers are exceptionally powerful and due to the fact that it is likely that you will host resource-hungry sites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the system can use will be 3 GB. This will enable you to accelerate the performance of very heavy Internet sites without effort and you’ll note the difference soon after the Memcached system starts caching database queries. You can make use of the caching system with any database-driven site, including those that are based on widely used CMSs such as Joomla and WordPress.
