Memcached is a popular content caching system, which can improve 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 replies that are returned, so when a user searches for a given product on your Internet site, for instance, the database will not have to be accessed to show the results and the entire task will be performed significantly faster. This is valid for all sorts of database-powered applications and not only for Internet shops, since every time a particular page is opened, the application sends a database request to get the data that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your site open considerably faster, but it will also create much less load. If any data in the database is modified, the cached replies will also be updated, so the site visitors will not see any old info.
Memcached in Website Hosting
Memcached is available as an optional upgrade with each and every website hosting package that we are offering and if you wish to use it for any script-powered site that you host on our innovative cloud platform, you’ll be able to add it in a couple of simple steps via your Hepsia Control Panel. During the process, you’ll be given the option to upgrade two separate features – the number of instances and the system memory. The first one is related to the number of the sites that can use the Memcached content caching system at the same time, so if you need it for several sites, you can get a number of instances. The second one has to do with the total amount of memory that the system will be able to use to cache data, so for a lot of sites (or for one traffic-intensive site), you’d better get more memory for better performance. The memory is offered in increments of 16 MB and more memory can be added every time you need it. With the Memcached caching system, every script-powered site hosted on our cloud servers will load extremely fast.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can add the Memcached content caching platform to any of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we are offering and make use of its full potential for any script-powered website hosted on our servers. The upgrade is offered through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can select two features – the instances and the system memory. These things specify how many sites can use the Memcached platform and how much system memory it will use to cache your info. You can choose them separately, since a given instance is not linked to a particular amount of memory, so you can use a lot of memory for one large-sized website, for instance. This feature is available in increments of 16 megabytes and you can get as much memory as you want. The Memcached platform can be used with any script-driven website regardless of its nature, including those that are based on widespread software applications like WordPress, Drupal or Joomla, and a lot of companies like Wikipedia and Zynga are already using it to improve the overall performance of their websites.
Memcached in VPS Web Hosting
Memcached is offered by default with each and every virtual private server offered by us provided that you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel, so you won’t have to pay any extra cash to be able to make the most of the full power of this object caching system. The more powerful plan you choose, the more memory Memcached will have for information caching purposes, but you’ll have at least several hundred MB all the time, 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 many websites, regardless of how busy they are, which in turn means that you can use a less powerful package for them without overloading the server. The caching system is excellent for script-driven apps such as OpenCart, Joomla, WordPress or Mambo, and you can utilize it even with a custom-made app. Shortly after you enable Memcached, it will start storing content and you’ll distinguish the improved performance of your sites.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting
If you obtain one of our Linux dedicated servers hosting and if you select Hepsia as your web hosting Control Panel during the order process, you’ll get the Memcached platform by default and you can use it with any website that you host on the dedicated server without upgrading or installing anything. It will begin caching data as people access your site, so you’ll detect the effects of using it shortly after that. The minimum amount of memory that will be available to the Memcached platform is 3 GB and naturally, the more powerful the plan, the more system memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will enable you to use the caching platform for lots of Internet sites or for an extremely popular Internet site without weakening its effectiveness. The Memcached platform will allow you to accelerate the speed of any database-driven site in no time – a Joomla portal, a WordPress online journal, an OpenCart e-store, etcetera, and to optimize the overall performance of your dedicated server.
