Memcached is a widely used content caching platform, which can enhance the speed and the overall performance of your websites significantly if they use an API or a database. This is achieved by caching the requests to the database/API and the responses that are delivered, so when a customer conducts a search for a particular product on your site, for example, the database won’t have to be accessed to return the results and the entire task will be performed considerably faster. This goes for all types of database-driven apps and not only for e-shops, as every time a page is visited, the app sends a database query to fetch the data that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your website load much faster, but it will also create much less load. If any content in the database is changed, the cached responses will also be updated, so the site visitors will not see any old info.
Memcached in Hosting
When you host script-based sites in a hosting
account with our company, you can add the Memcached caching system to your shared hosting plan with just a few clicks via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available momentarily and, since the PHP extension needed for it is pre-installed on our cutting-edge cloud web hosting 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 system memory that the Memcached caching system will use. The latter is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and you can add memory whenever you wish. Naturally, the more memory the Memcached caching system is allowed to use, the more data it will cache, so if you manage a busy website with lots of content, you may require more memory to be able to take full advantage of the power that Memcached can offer you.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can get the Memcached data caching system as an optional upgrade with each of our semi-dedicated servers
and since it works with any script-powered web app, you can use it for any site that you host on our semi-dedicated servers, no matter what application you have used – Mambo, WordPress or Joomla™
, a custom-developed application, etc. You can order the upgrade via the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel from which you administer your semi-dedicated server account, and you can choose two separate features – the instances and the amount of memory that they will use. In other words, these things determine the number of the websites that will use the Memcached caching system and the total amount of system memory that the system will be able to use in order to cache your data. The two things are ordered separately for more freedom and one instance does not come with a pre-defined amount of system memory. You can make full use of the Memcached system with any kind of website and both you and your site visitors will swiftly notice the difference in the performance.
Memcached in VPS Servers
You will get Memcached with any of the VPS server
packages that we’re offering if you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to activate the data caching platform via the Control Panel section with the exact same name. The activation requires a few clicks and you will distinguish the difference in the performance of your sites almost instantaneously. The amount of memory that Memcached can take advantage of to cache info depends on the particular VPS package that you’ve picked, but at any rate it will not be less than several hundred megabytes, which is more than enough even for several large sites. You can use Memcached with Internet sites based on Joomla™
, WordPress or any other Internet application and decrease the load on your server, which will permit you to continue using the current Virtual Private Server package rather than moving to a more powerful one, since you simply won’t need it. Memcached is already being used by popular websites such as Reddit, Zynga and Wikipedia, which demonstrates its efficacy.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers
Memcached comes free of charge with all dedicated servers
that we’re offering and the only condition is that the dedicated server must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can use the object caching system for any database-driven site, including those based on popular applications – for instance, a WordPress weblog or a Joomla™
-driven community website. Each server is tied to a specific amount of system memory that the Memcached system can employ, but the minimum amount you will get is 3 gigabytes, which is sufficient enough to improve the speed of extremely large websites greatly, since this memory will be dedicated to storing the cached content. The Memcached system will begin storing info as soon as it is activated, so soon after that, you’ll distinguish the improved performance of your sites and the lowered load on your dedicated server. Lots of Internet sites use the Memcached caching system to increase their efficiency, including popular ones like Reddit and Wikipedia.
