Memcached is a popular distributed memory caching platform, which can improve the speed and the performance of your Internet sites considerably in case they use a database or an API. This is achieved by caching the calls to the API/database and the replies that are returned, so when a visitor searches for some product on your site, for example, the database won’t have to be accessed to display the results and the whole task will be carried out noticeably faster. This is valid for all types of database-powered applications and not only for e-commerce portals, since every time a particular web page is accessed, the app connects to its database to fetch the data that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your website load much faster, but it will also generate much less server load. If any data in the database is updated, the cached responses will also be ‘refreshed’, so the website visitors won’t see any out-of-date info.
Memcached in Hosting
When you host script-powered websites in a hosting account with us, you can add the Memcached distributed memory object caching system to your plan with only a couple of clicks via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available immediately and, since the extension needed for it is pre-installed on our avant-garde cloud hosting platform, you can start using it straight away. To give you more flexibility, 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 comes in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order memory whenever you need. Logically, the more memory Memcached is permitted to use, the more data it will cache, so in case you have a high-demand website with lots of data, you may need more memory so as to be able to make the most of the power that Memcached can give you.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can add the Memcached memory caching platform to any of the Linux semi-dedicated packages that we’re offering and make use of its full capacity for any script-driven Internet site hosted on our servers. The upgrade is available through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can select two things – the instances and the system memory. These things show how many websites can use the Memcached platform and the amount of system memory that it will use to store your information. You can choose them independently, since one instance is not tied to a fixed amount of memory, so you can use a lot of memory for one resource-heavy site, for instance. This upgrade is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and you can get as much memory as you wish. The Memcached platform can be used with any script-driven site irrespective of its nature, including those based on widely used applications like WordPress, Joomla or Drupal, and lots of companies such as Wikipedia and Zynga are already using it to improve the loading speed of their sites.
Memcached in VPS Web Hosting
Memcached is offered by default with each virtual private server offered by our company provided that you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel, so you won’t need to pay any extra money to be able to make the most of the full power of this memory caching system. The more powerful plan you choose, the more system memory Memcached will have for content storage purposes, but you will have at least several hundred MB at all times, which is much more than what you would get with a shared package. This will enable you to use the Memcached system for many websites, no matter how popular they are, which in turn goes to say that you can use a less powerful package for them without overloading the VPS server. The Memcached caching system is ideal for script-powered applications like OpenCart, WordPress, Joomla or Mambo, and you can use it even with a custom-made app. Soon after you enable Memcached, it will start storing information and you will spot the enhanced overall performance of your websites.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting
Memcached comes for free with all Linux dedicated servers hosting packages that we offer and the only requirement is that the dedicated machine must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. You can use the content caching system for any database-powered site, including those based on famous web-based apps – for instance, a WordPress online journal or a Joomla-powered community portal. Each server is tied to a particular amount of memory that Memcached can employ, but the minimum you’ll get is three gigabytes, which is quite enough to accelerate the loading speed of very large websites substantially, as this very memory will be dedicated to storing the cached content. The system will begin storing data the moment it is enabled, so soon thereafter, you’ll detect the enhanced overall performance of your Internet sites and the lowered server load. A lot of sites use Memcached to improve their effectiveness, among them popular ones like Wikipedia and Reddit.
