Memcached is a famous memory caching system, which can enhance the speed and the overall performance of your sites significantly in case they use an API or a database. This is achieved by caching the requests to the database/API and the responses that are returned, so if a client conducts a search for a certain product on your Internet site, for instance, the database will not have to be accessed to return the results and the entire operation will be carried out notably quicker. This is valid for all sorts of database-powered apps and not only for shopping portals, as anytime a web page is accessed, the application sends a query to its database to get the content that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your website load significantly faster, but it will also create much less load. If any content in the database is updated, the cached replies will also be updated, so the users won’t see any out-of-date information.
Memcached in Cloud Hosting
The Memcached content caching system is available as an upgrade with each cloud hosting
that we are offering and you’ll be able to begin using it as soon as you add it, since the extension that it needs in order to work properly is pre-installed on our advanced cloud website hosting platform. You can order the upgrade from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is available with each shared hosting plan and a brand-new Control Panel section where you can manage Memcached will show up. The upgrade is separated into two parts – the number of instances and the system memory, so as to give you more versatility. The first one refers to the number of the websites which can use the Memcached caching system, while the second one, which comes in increments of 16 MB, specifies the total size of the content that can be cached by the system. A heavy-traffic website with a large-size database may require more memory so as to take an even bigger advantage of the Memcached caching system, so in case you wish to upgrade this service, you will be able to do it at any moment with a couple of mouse clicks.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you buy one of our semi-dedicated server
packages, you’ll find Memcached as an optional upgrade in the Upgrades part of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so if you’d like to use it for any of the sites hosted in your semi-dedicated server hosting account, you can add it with only a few mouse clicks. The content caching platform is ideal for any script-based software app such as WordPress, Joomla™
, or even a custom-built application, and depending on your needs, you will be able to choose two separate features – how many websites will use the Memcached caching platform, in other words – the number of instances; and how much content will be cached, i.e. the amount of system memory that the platform will use. The two features are not bound to each other, so if you manage a regularly visited site with a lot of content, you can get one instance and a larger amount of system memory. The Memcached caching platform will enhance the performance of your websites soon after you activate it and both you and your site visitors will enjoy much better loading times.
Memcached in VPS Servers
Memcached is offered by default with each and every VPS server
offered by our company on the condition that you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel, so you will not need to pay any extra cash to be able to take advantage of the maximum potential of this distributed memory caching system. The more powerful VPS hosting plan you choose, the more memory Memcached will have for information caching purposes, but you’ll have at least several hundred megabytes at all times, which is much more than the amount of memory you’d get with a shared package. This will allow you to use the Memcached system for numerous sites, irrespective of how busy they are, which in turn means that you can use a lower-end package for them without overloading your server. The caching system is excellent for script-based web apps such as Joomla™
, WordPress, OpenCart or Mambo, and you can use it even with a custom app. Shortly after you enable the Memcached system, it will start storing information and you’ll spot the optimized performance of your websites.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers
You can make use of the full potential of Memcached with each and every dedicated server
that we offer if you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel. A special section in it is dedicated to the distributed memory object caching system and you can begin using Memcached for any Internet site hosted on the machine with just a couple of clicks of the mouse. You can improve the overall performance of any Internet site, regardless of what script-driven app you’re using or how heavy the Internet site is, as the minimum amount of system memory that Memcached will be able to employ is three gigabytes and this amount grows enormously with the more powerful dedicated servers. Soon after the system is enabled, it will start caching info anytime somebody accesses your site, so, once sufficient information has been stored, you’ll detect the reduced load on the dedicated machine and the enhanced overall performance of your site. The Memcached caching system is being used by many sites, among them famous portals like Reddit, Zynga and Wikipedia, which verifies the effectiveness of the caching system.
