Memcached is a famous object caching system, which can increase the loading speed and the performance of your Internet sites tremendously 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 delivered, so if someone conducts a search for some product on your Internet site, for instance, the database will not have to be accessed to display the results and the entire procedure will be performed much quicker. This goes for all kinds of database-powered apps and not only for online shops, as every time a given page is accessed, the application connects to its database to fetch the content that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your website open considerably faster, but it will also generate much less server load. If any content in the database is modified, the cached responses will also be updated, so the website visitors won’t see any outdated info.
Memcached in Shared Hosting
Memcached is available as an optional upgrade with each Linux shared hosting
that we are offering and you will be able to begin using it once you add it, as the PHP extension that it requires in order to work properly is already present on our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform. You can order the upgrade through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with each hosting plan and a brand-new section where you can manage Memcached will appear. The upgrade is separated into two parts – the number of instances and the amount of system memory, so as to offer you more flexibility. The first one refers to the number of the websites that can use Memcached, whereas the second, which comes in increments of 16 MB, determines the maximum size of the content that the system can cache. A traffic-heavy site with a large-sized database may need more memory in order to take an even bigger advantage of Memcached, so if you want to upgrade this service, you’ll be able to do it at any time with several clicks.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can get the Memcached data caching system as an optional upgrade with all our semi-dedicated packages
and since it works with any script-powered app, you can use it for each Internet site that you host on our semi-dedicated servers, regardless of what app you have used – Mambo, WordPress or Joomla™
, a custom-built application, etc. You can add the upgrade from the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel from which you administer your semi-dedicated account, and you can choose two separate things – the number of instances and the amount of system memory that they will use. To put it simply, these things indicate the number of the Internet sites that will use the Memcached system and the total amount of system memory that the system will be able to use to cache your content. The two features are offered separately for more flexibility and one instance does not come with a particular amount of memory. You can make use of the Memcached system with any kind of website and both you and the visitors will swiftly notice the difference in the overall performance.
Memcached in VPS
If you buy a virtual private server
from our company, you’ll be able to use Memcached at no extra charge, as the data caching platform comes with all virtual machines ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. Even if you own resource-heavy sites, you’ll be able to optimize their performance without any effort and the decreased load on your server will enable you to keep your current package instead of migrating to a more powerful one. The amount of memory that Memcached can use to cache data depends on the package that you are using, but even with a less powerful one, you’ll get at least several hundred MB, which is significantly more than what you’d get with a shared web hosting package, so the website performance boost will be immense. You can take advantage of the Memcached platform with any database-driven web application, regardless of whether you have built it on your own or you’re using a ready-to-use one such as OpenCart, WordPress or Joomla™
Memcached in Dedicated Hosting
You can unleash the full potential of Memcached with every dedicated server
that we’re offering in case you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. A section in it is dedicated to the memory caching system and you can begin using Memcached for any Internet site hosted on the machine with only a couple of clicks of the mouse. You can improve the overall performance of any website, irrespective of what script-powered software app you’re using or how heavy the Internet site is, since the minimum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to use is 3 gigabytes and this amount increases significantly with the more powerful servers. Soon after the system is activated, it will begin caching info anytime somebody accesses your site, so, as soon as enough content has been stored, you’ll perceive the reduced load and the improved performance of the site. The Memcached system is used by a lot of sites, including popular portals like Zynga, Wikipedia and Reddit, which proves the effectiveness of the Memcached caching system.
