Memcached is a widely used data caching system, which can enhance the loading speed and the overall performance of your websites significantly if they use a database or an API. This is achieved by caching the requests to the API/database and the replies that are returned, so if a client conducts a search for a specific product on your website, for example, the database won’t have to be accessed to show the results and the whole procedure will be performed significantly quicker. This goes for all sorts of database-driven apps and not only for web shops, as anytime a given web page is accessed, the application sends a query to its database to get the data that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your website open significantly faster, but it will also create much less load. If any data in the database is modified, the cached replies will also be ‘refreshed’, so the users won’t see any out-of-date information.
Memcached in Hosting
If you host script-driven websites in a hosting account with our company, you can add the Memcached content caching system to your hosting package with just a few clicks of the mouse via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available momentarily and, since the required PHP extension is already installed on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform, you can start using it straight away. To give you more flexibility, we offer two different upgrades related to the number of instances (in other words – how many websites will use Memcached) and to the amount of memory that the Memcached caching system will use. The latter is available in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order memory whenever you like. Logically, the more memory Memcached is permitted to use, the more data it will cache, so in case you manage a larger site with lots of data, you may need more memory in order 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 object caching platform to any of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting offered by us and use its full capacity for any script-driven Internet site hosted on our servers. The upgrade is offered through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can select two features – the instances and the amount of system memory. These things specify how many websites can use the Memcached caching platform and how much memory it will use to store your data. You can select them independently, since one instance is not bound to a fixed amount of memory, so you can use plenty of memory for one popular Internet site, for example. This upgrade is available in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order as much memory as you wish. The platform can be used with any script-powered site regardless of its type, including those that are based on popular software apps like Drupal, WordPress or Joomla, and lots of companies such as Wikipedia and Zynga are already using it to increase the loading speed of their sites.
Memcached in VPS Hosting
You’ll get Memcached with each of the virtual private server packages that we are offering in case you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel and you will be able to activate the data caching platform through the section with the exact same name. The configuration takes a few mouse clicks and you’ll distinguish the difference in the overall performance of your websites almost instantaneously. The amount of system memory that the Memcached caching platform can use to cache content depends on the particular Virtual Private Server plan that you have chosen, but at any rate it will be at least several hundred megabytes, which is more than enough even for multiple resource-intensive websites. You can use the Memcached platform with sites driven by Joomla, WordPress or any other app and decrease the load on your server, which will allow you to continue using the current VPS hosting package instead of moving to a more powerful one, since you will simply not need it. The Memcached platform is already being used by popular websites like Reddit, Wikipedia and Zynga, which confirms its efficacy.
Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting
Memcached comes free of charge with all Linux dedicated web hosting offered by our company and the one and only condition is that the dedicated server must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. You can use the object caching system for any database-powered website, including those that are based on widely used web apps – for instance, a WordPress online journal or a Joomla-powered social networking site. Each server comes with a given amount of memory that the Memcached system can employ, but the minimum amount you’ll get is three gigabytes, which is sufficient enough to enhance the loading speed of very large websites seriously, as this memory will be dedicated to storing the cached info. The system will start storing data once it’s activated, so shortly thereafter, you will see the improved overall performance of your sites and the reduced load on your server. Numerous websites use the Memcached caching system to boost their effectiveness, among them popular ones such as Reddit and Wikipedia.
