Memcached is a popular content caching system, which can enhance the loading speed and the overall performance of your Internet sites tremendously if they use a database or an API. This is achieved by caching the calls to the database/API and the responses that are delivered, so if a user searches for a given product on your site, for instance, the database won’t have to be accessed to display the results and the whole task will be carried out considerably faster. This goes for all types of database-driven apps and not only for web shops, since every time a specific page is opened, the app sends a database query to fetch the content that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your site open considerably faster, but it will also produce much less server load. If any data in the database is modified, the cached replies will also be ‘refreshed’, so the visitors won’t see any outdated info.
Memcached in Hosting
Memcached comes as an upgrade with each and every hosting account that we offer and if you’d like to use it for any script-based site that you host on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform, you’ll be able to order it in several easy steps through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. During the process, you’ll be offered the option to upgrade two different things – the number of instances and the system memory. The first one has to do with the number of the Internet sites that can use the Memcached caching system simultaneously, so if you need it for several Internet sites, you can get a number of instances. The second one has to do with the maximum amount of memory that the system will be able to use in order to cache data, so for many websites (or for one single large site), you may want to get more memory for improved performance. The memory is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be ordered every time you need it. With Memcached, every script-driven Internet site hosted on our cloud servers will open lightning-fast.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you choose to host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to take advantage of Memcached effortlessly, as the object caching platform’s setup requires a few mouse clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. The extension that is required is pre-installed on our semi-dedicated servers, so you can begin using the Memcached caching platform the moment you add it to your semi-dedicated server account. You will be able to select how many sites can use it and how much content it will cache, i.e. there’re two separate upgradable features – the instances and the memory. You can order more of both, so if one of your Internet sites becomes extremely popular, for instance, you can always add more memory to it. Our system is truly flexible in this regard and we do not tie a given number of instances to a pre-defined amount of memory. You can take advantage of Memcached to increase the speed of any script-driven site, including those that are based on widely used Internet apps, such as WordPress or Joomla.
Memcached in VPS Servers
Memcached is included by default with every VPS server that we’re offering provided that you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel, so you won’t have to pay anything extra to be able to use the full potential of this caching system. The more powerful Virtual Private Server package you choose, the more system memory Memcached will have for data caching purposes, but you will have no less than several hundred megabytes at all times, which is much more than what you would get with a shared hosting plan. This will enable you to use Memcached for plenty of websites, no matter how popular they are, which in turn goes to say that you can use a low-end package for them without overloading your VPS server. The caching system is suitable for script-powered apps such as WordPress, Joomla, OpenCart or Mambo, and you can utilize it even with a custom-made app. Shortly after you activate Memcached, it will start storing data and you’ll observe the optimized performance of your websites.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers
You can unleash the full potential of Memcached with each dedicated server that we are offering in case you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel. A special Control Panel section is dedicated to the distributed memory object caching system and you can start using Memcached for any site hosted on the dedicated machine with only a few mouse clicks. You can enhance the performance of any website, irrespective of what script-based web app you rely on or how busy the Internet site is, as the minimum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to employ is 3 gigabytes and this amount grows enormously with the more powerful servers. Shortly after the system is enabled, it will begin caching info every time somebody accesses your website, so, once enough info has been stored, you will distinguish the reduced load and the optimized overall performance of your website. The Memcached system is being used by many sites, including popular portals like Reddit, Wikipedia and Zynga, which is a confirmation of the effectiveness of the Memcached system.
