Memcached is a widespread distributed memory caching platform, which can improve the speed and the performance of your websites greatly if they use an API or a database. This is achieved by caching the calls to the API/database and the replies that are returned, so if a customer searches for a specific product on your site, for instance, the database will not have to be accessed to display the results and the entire task will be executed considerably faster. That goes for all sorts of database-powered apps and not only for e-stores, as anytime a given page is accessed, the app sends a request to its database to fetch the data that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your site open considerably faster, but it will also generate much less load. If any data in the database is modified, the cached replies will also be ‘refreshed’, so the website visitors won’t see any outdated info.
Memcached in Web Hosting
You can take advantage of the Memcached data caching system with all Linux web hosting packages that we’re offering. It’s offered as an optional upgrade, which you can acquire with just a few clicks of the mouse from your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. It requires a PHP extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud web hosting platform, so you can begin using Memcached once you add it. The upgrade is divided into two parts, which will offer you more flexibility depending on the Internet sites that you would like to use it for. The first one determines the number of the websites that will use the Memcached caching system, or the so-called ‘instances’, while the second one refers to the memory, i.e. to how much content the system will be able to cache. You can order more memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you have, the more data will be cached, which may be a very good idea for popular websites with very large databases and plenty of simultaneous visitors. In this way, you can enhance the loading speed of every script-based Internet site hosted on our servers without efforts.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can get Memcached as an optional upgrade with all our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages and since it works with any script-driven app, you can use it for every Internet site that you host on our semi-dedicated servers, irrespective of what application you have used – Mambo, Joomla or WordPress, a custom-built one, etc. You can request the upgrade from the respective section of the Hepsia Control Panel from which you administer your semi-dedicated server account, and you can choose two different things – the number of instances and the amount of system memory that they will use. Basically, these things specify how many websites will use the Memcached caching system and the maximum amount of system memory that the system will be able to use to store your information. The two things are offered separately for more flexibility and one instance does not come bundled with a particular amount of system memory. You can make full use of the Memcached system with any kind of site and both you and the site visitors will quickly see the difference in the performance.
Memcached in VPS Hosting
Memcached is offered by default with each and every virtual private server that we are offering provided that you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel, so you won’t need to pay any extra cash to be able to use the full potential of this object caching system. The more powerful plan you choose, the more system 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 the amount of memory you’d get with a shared package. This will enable you to use the Memcached caching system for numerous websites, no matter how busy they are, which in turn means that you can use a lower-end package for them without overloading your VPS server. The caching system is excellent for script-based software apps like Joomla, WordPress, OpenCart or Mambo, and you can use it even with a custom-created app. Soon after you enable the Memcached caching system, it will start storing content and you’ll distinguish the optimized overall performance of your websites.
Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting
You can unleash the full potential of Memcached with every dedicated server that we offer if you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel. A special Control Panel section is dedicated to the object caching system and you can begin using Memcached for any site hosted on the dedicated server with just several clicks. You can optimize the performance of any website, regardless of what script-driven software app you are using or how popular the Internet site is, as the minimum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to use is 3 gigabytes and this amount rises tremendously with the higher-end servers. Soon after the caching system is enabled, it will start caching data anytime somebody visits your website, so, once sufficient info has been stored, you’ll perceive the reduced load on the dedicated server and the enhanced performance of your Internet site. The Memcached caching system is being used by numerous sites, including popular portals such as Zynga, Reddit and Wikipedia, which is a confirmation of the efficiency of the Memcached system.
