Memcached is a commonly used distributed memory object caching platform, which can boost the speed and the overall performance of your sites immensely if they use an API or a database. This is accomplished by caching the calls to the database/API and the responses that are delivered, so if a customer searches for a given product on your website, for example, the database will not have to be accessed to return the results and the entire procedure will be carried out notably quicker. This is valid for all types of database-powered applications and not only for shopping portals, as anytime a given page is visited, the application connects to its database to get the data that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your site load considerably faster, but it will also create much less load. If any content in the database is modified, the cached responses will also be ‘refreshed’, so the website visitors won’t see any old info.
Memcached in Web Hosting
You can take advantage of Memcached with all Linux web hosting that we offer. It is offered as an upgrade, which you can acquire with only a couple of clicks of the mouse through your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. It requires an extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud hosting platform, so you can start using Memcached as soon as you add it. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts, which will offer you more versatility depending on the Internet sites that you wish to use it for. The first part defines the number of the websites that will use the Memcached caching system, or the ‘instances’, while the second one is related to the system memory, in other words – to how much content the system will be able to cache. You can order more system memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you’ve got, the more data will be cached, which may be a really good idea for heavy-traffic sites with very large databases and numerous users. Thus, you can enhance the performance of any script-powered website hosted on our servers effortlessly.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you get any of our semi-dedicated server plans, you will find Memcached as an optional upgrade in the Upgrades part of the Hepsia Control Panel, so if you’d like to use it for any of the sites hosted in your semi-dedicated account, you can enable it with only a couple of clicks of the mouse. The content caching platform is ideal for any script-powered software app like Joomla, WordPress, or even an in-house built application, and depending on your demands, you will be able to choose two separate things – how many websites will use the Memcached platform, in other words – the number of instances; and how much info will be cached, in other words – the amount of memory that the platform will employ. The two things are not bound to each other, so if you’ve got a regularly visited website with lots of content, you can order one instance and a large amount of system memory. The Memcached platform will increase the overall performance of your sites soon after you activate it and both you and your visitors will enjoy faster load speeds.
Memcached in VPS Web Hosting
You’ll get Memcached with any of the virtual private server plans offered by us when you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to activate the distributed memory object caching platform via the Control Panel section with the very same name. The activation takes a few mouse clicks and you will notice the difference in the overall performance of your Internet sites almost immediately. The amount of memory that the Memcached caching platform can use to cache data depends on the given VPS hosting plan that you have picked, but in any case it won’t be less than several hundred MB, which is quite enough even for several content-loaded websites. You can use Memcached with Internet sites based on Joomla, WordPress or any other Internet app and lower the load on your server, which will permit you to keep using the current VPS hosting plan rather than upgrading to a more powerful one, since you will simply not need it. The Memcached platform is already being used by famous websites like Zynga, Reddit and Wikipedia, which is a confirmation of its effectiveness.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting
You can unlock the full potential of Memcached with every dedicated server offered by our company if you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. A special section in it is dedicated to the caching system and you can start using Memcached for any Internet site hosted on the machine with only several mouse clicks. You can accelerate the performance of any website, regardless of what script-based software application you rely on or how heavy the site is, since the minimum amount of system memory that Memcached will be able to employ is three gigabytes and this amount grows seriously with the higher-end dedicated servers. Soon after the system is activated, it will start caching data each time somebody visits your site, so, as soon as sufficient info has been stored, you will detect the lowered load and the optimized overall performance of the website. The Memcached system is being used by plenty of sites, among them popular portals such as Reddit, Zynga and Wikipedia, which demonstrates the efficiency of the Memcached system.
