Memcached is a widespread distributed memory object caching system, which can improve the loading speed and the overall performance of your Internet sites greatly if they use a database or an API. This is accomplished by caching the calls to the database/API and the responses that are returned, so if somebody conducts a search for a certain product on your Internet site, for instance, the database won’t have to be accessed to display the results and the entire task will be executed considerably faster. This is valid for all sorts of database-powered applications and not only for e-stores, as every time a page is visited, the app sends a request to its database to fetch the content that should be displayed. 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any content in the database is edited, the cached replies will also be updated, so the site visitors will not see any outdated information.
Memcached in Cloud Hosting
If you host script-powered websites in a cloud hosting account with us, you will be able to add the Memcached distributed memory object caching system to your web hosting plan with just a few clicks through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantly and, since the required PHP extension is already installed on our innovative cloud web hosting platform, you can start using it straight away. To give you more flexibility, we offer two different upgrades related to the number of instances (i.e. how many websites will use Memcached) and to the amount of system memory that the Memcached caching system will use. The latter comes in increments of 16 megabytes and you can add memory whenever you wish. Logically, the more memory the Memcached caching system is allowed to use, the more data it will cache, so in case you run a high-traffic site with lots of data, you may need more memory so as to be able to take advantage of the power that Memcached can give you.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you purchase one of our semi-dedicated server packages, you’ll find Memcached as an optional upgrade in the Upgrades section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so if you wish to use it for any of the sites hosted in your semi-dedicated server hosting account, you can activate it with just a few mouse clicks. The memory caching platform is ideal for any script-driven software application such as Joomla, WordPress, or even a tailor-made application, and based on your demands, you’ll be able to select two different things – how many sites will use the Memcached platform, in other words – the number of instances; and how much information will be cached, in other words – the amount of system memory that the platform will use. The two features are not tied to each other, so if you’ve got a traffic-intensive site with lots of data, you can get one instance and a large amount of system memory. Memcached will increase the overall performance of your Internet sites shortly after you activate it and both you and your visitors will enjoy much faster loading speeds.
Memcached in VPS Web Hosting
When you purchase a virtual private server from us, you will be able to use Memcached at no additional fee, as the caching platform is available with all VPSs ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Even if you have resource-heavy sites, you’ll be able to enhance their overall performance effortlessly and the lowered load on your Virtual Private Server will permit you to continue using your current VPS hosting plan instead of migrating to a more powerful one. The amount of system memory that Memcached can use to cache information depends on the package that you are using, but even with a low-end one, you will have no less than several hundred MB, which is significantly more than the amount of memory you’d get with a shared plan, so the website performance boost will be great. You can use Memcached with any database-driven application, irrespective of whether you have built it on your own or you are using a ready-made one such as WordPress, OpenCart or Joomla.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting
Memcached is available free of charge with all Linux dedicated servers hosting that we are offering and the only requirement is that the dedicated machine must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can use the caching system for any database-powered Internet site, including those that are based on widely used applications – for instance, a WordPress personal blog or a Joomla-driven community web portal. Each server comes with a given amount of memory that the Memcached caching system can employ, but the minimum you will get is three gigabytes, which is sufficient enough to boost the loading speed of extremely busy websites tremendously, as this very memory will be dedicated to storing the cached info. The Memcached system will begin caching info as soon as it is enabled, so soon after that, you’ll notice the enhanced overall performance of your Internet sites and the reduced load on the dedicated machine. Numerous Internet sites use the Memcached caching system to increase their efficacy, including famous ones such as Wikipedia and Reddit.
