Memcached is a widespread object caching platform, which can boost the speed and the 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 customer searches for a given product on your website, for instance, the database won’t have to be accessed to return the results and the whole operation will be executed noticeably quicker. This is valid for all kinds of database-powered applications and not only for online shops, as every time a web page is opened, the app sends a database request to fetch the content that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your website load much faster, but it will also produce much less server load. If any data in the database is changed, the cached replies will also be ‘refreshed’, so the site visitors will not see any out-of-date information.
Memcached in Website Hosting
You can make use of the Memcached caching system with all Linux website hosting service offered by our company. It is offered as an upgrade, which you can obtain with only a few clicks from your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. It requires a PHP extension, which is already installed on our cloud web hosting platform, so you can begin using Memcached the moment you order it. The upgrade is divided into two parts, which will offer you more freedom depending on the sites that you’d like to use it for. The first one indicates the number of the sites that will use the Memcached caching system, or the ‘instances’, while the second one refers to the system memory, in other words – to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can get more system memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you’ve ordered, the more data will be cached, which may be an exceptionally good idea for traffic-heavy websites with very large databases and many simultaneous visitors. Thus, you can enhance the loading speed of any script-based site hosted on our cloud servers effortlessly.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you choose to host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to take advantage of Memcached with ease, as the memory caching platform’s setup takes a couple of clicks of the mouse 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 as soon as you add it to your account. You will be able to choose how many Internet sites can use it and how much data it will cache, in other words – there are two separate features that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the system memory. You can order more of both, so if one of your Internet sites becomes extremely popular, for example, you can always order more memory. Our system is rather flexible in this regard and we don’t tie a particular number of instances to a fixed amount of system memory. You can employ Memcached to boost the speed of any script-powered website, including those based on famous software applications, such as WordPress or Joomla.
Memcached in VPS Servers
You’ll get Memcached with any of the VPS server plans that we’re offering in case you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to activate the distributed memory caching platform through the Control Panel section with the same name. The activation takes a few mouse clicks and you’ll see the difference in the performance of your sites almost instantly. The amount of memory that Memcached can use to store information depends on the given VPS package that you’ve picked, but at any rate it will be at least several hundred megabytes, which is quite enough even for several resource-consuming websites. You can use Memcached with sites powered by Joomla, WordPress or any other software app and reduce the load on your VPS, which will allow you to continue using the current Virtual Private Server package rather than switching to a more powerful one, since you simply won’t need it. Memcached is already being used by famous websites like Zynga, Reddit and Wikipedia, which is a proof of its effectiveness.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers
Memcached is available free of charge with all dedicated service that we are offering and the sole requirement is that the dedicated server must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can use the distributed memory caching system for any database-powered website, including those based on widely used applications – for instance, a WordPress personal blog or a Joomla-driven social network. Each dedicated server is tied to a given amount of system memory that the Memcached caching system can employ, but the minimum amount you’ll get is 3 gigabytes, which is quite enough to enhance the load speed of extremely busy websites seriously, as this memory will be dedicated to storing the cached data. The Memcached system will begin caching data once it is enabled, so soon thereafter, you will observe the improved performance of your sites and the decreased load. A lot of websites use the Memcached system to increase their efficacy, including famous ones like Reddit and Wikipedia.
