Memcached is a popular distributed memory caching system, which can improve the loading speed and the overall performance of your websites drastically if they use a database or an API. This is achieved by caching the calls to the API/database and the replies that are delivered, so when someone conducts a search for a certain product on your website, for instance, the database won’t have to be accessed to display the results and the entire procedure will be carried out notably faster. This goes for all sorts of database-driven applications and not only for Internet shops, as every time a specific page is opened, the app sends a request to its database to fetch the data that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your website open much faster, but it will also generate much less load. If any content in the database is changed, the cached replies will also be updated, so the users will not see any old info.
Memcached in Web Hosting
Memcached is available as an optional upgrade with each web hosting plan offered by us and if you want to use it for any script-driven Internet site that you host on our avant-garde cloud web hosting platform, you’ll be able to activate it in a few simple steps through your Hepsia Control Panel. In the meantime, you’ll be given the option to upgrade two separate things – the number of instances and the system memory. The first one refers to the number of the sites that can use the Memcached data caching system at the same time, so if you need it for several sites, you can order a handful 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 content, so for many websites (or for one resource-absorbing site), you should order more memory for improved performance. The memory is available in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be added at any time. With Memcached, any script-driven Internet site hosted on our cloud servers will load much faster.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can add the Memcached caching platform to any of the semi-dedicated plans that we offer and use its full potential for any script-powered site hosted by us. The upgrade is offered through the Hepsia Control Panel and you can select two things – the number of instances and the system memory. These things specify the number of the sites that can use the Memcached platform and how much system memory it will use to cache your information. You can choose them separately, since a given instance is not bound to a particular amount of system memory, so you can use lots of memory for one traffic-hungry Internet site, for instance. This upgrade comes in increments of 16 MB and you can get as much memory as you want. The platform can be used with any script-driven site irrespective of its type, including those that are based on popular web-based apps like Drupal, Joomla or WordPress, and lots of companies like Zynga and Wikipedia are already using it to increase the loading speed of their websites.
Memcached in VPS Servers
When you purchase a VPS server from our company, you’ll be able to use Memcached at no extra fee, as the memory caching platform is offered with all Virtual Private Servers that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. Even if you’ve got resource-hungry sites, you will be able to improve their overall performance with no effort and the lowered load on the VPS server will permit you to keep using your current Virtual Private Server package instead of upgrading to a more powerful one. The amount of memory that Memcached can use to store data depends on the plan that you are using, but even with a low-end one, you will get at least several hundred megabytes, which is significantly more than what you’d get with a shared hosting package, so the website performance boost will be considerable. You can use Memcached with any database-driven web application, no matter if you’ve developed it on your own or you are using a ready-for-use one like WordPress, OpenCart or Joomla.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers
Memcached is available free of charge with all dedicated web hosting plans offered by us and the sole condition is that the dedicated server must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. You can use the data caching system for any database-powered Internet site, including those that are based on popular web-based applications – for example, a WordPress blog or a Joomla-powered social networking site. Each dedicated machine is tied to a certain amount of memory that Memcached can employ, but the minimum you will get is three gigabytes, which is quite enough to optimize the speed of very busy sites substantially, since this very memory will be dedicated to storing the cached info. The system will begin caching information once it is enabled, so soon after that, you will observe the enhanced performance of your sites and the decreased load on your dedicated machine. Lots of Internet sites use the Memcached system to boost their effectiveness, including popular ones like Wikipedia and Reddit.
