Memcached is a widespread caching system, which can improve the speed and the overall performance of your websites drastically in case they use an API or a database. This is accomplished by caching the requests to the API/database and the responses that are delivered, so if a customer searches for a given 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 performed notably faster. This is valid for all kinds of database-powered applications and not only for Internet shops, since every time a web page is visited, the application sends a query to its database to fetch the content that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your website load noticeably faster, but it will also produce much less server load. If any data in the database is modified, the cached replies will also be ‘refreshed’, so the visitors will not see any old info.
Memcached in Website Hosting
Memcached comes as an upgrade with each website hosting package that we are offering and in case you’d like to use it for any script-driven website that you host on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform, you’ll be able to order it in several easy steps through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. During the process, you will be given the option to upgrade two separate features – the instances and the system memory. The first one is related to the number of the websites that can use the Memcached data caching system at the same time, so if you need it for several websites, you can get a handful of instances. The second one refers to the total amount of memory that the system will be permitted to use in order to cache data, so for numerous sites (or for one large-size site), you should order more memory for better performance. The memory comes in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be ordered at any moment. With Memcached, every script-driven Internet site hosted on our servers will open blazing-fast.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you decide to host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you can take advantage of Memcached with ease, since the distributed memory object caching platform’s setup takes a couple of clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The required extension is already installed on our semi-dedicated servers, so you can begin using Memcached as soon as you add it to your semi-dedicated server account. You will be able to select how many websites can use it and how much info it will cache, i.e. there’re two different features that can be upgraded – the instances and the memory. You can get more of both, so if one of your Internet sites becomes very popular, for example, you can always get more memory. Our system is amazingly flexible in this regard and we do not bind a given number of instances to a pre-defined amount of system memory. You can employ Memcached to accelerate any script-powered Internet site, including those that are based on popular web applications, such as WordPress or Joomla.
Memcached in VPS Servers
If you acquire a VPS server from us, you will be able to use Memcached at no additional charge, as the distributed memory object caching platform is available with all servers that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. Even if you run resource-hungry sites, you’ll be able to improve their performance with no effort and the lowered load on the virtual machine will allow you to continue using your current Virtual Private Server hosting package instead of moving to a more powerful one. The amount of memory that the Memcached platform can use to cache data depends on the plan that you’re using, but even with a lower-end one, you’ll have no less than several hundred megabytes, which is considerably more than the amount of memory you’d get with a shared web hosting plan, so the website performance boost will be tremendous. You can use Memcached with any database-powered web app, regardless of whether you’ve created it on your own or you are using a ready-for-use one like WordPress, OpenCart or Joomla.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers
Memcached comes for free with all Linux dedicated service that we offer and the one and only requirement is that the server must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. You can use the memory caching system for any database-powered site, including those that are based on widely used applications – for example, a WordPress personal diary or a Joomla-driven social networking website. Each dedicated machine comes with a specific amount of system memory that the Memcached system can employ, but the minimum amount you’ll get is 3 gigabytes, which is quite enough to increase the speed of extremely busy sites immensely, since this very memory will be dedicated to storing the cached information. The system will start caching data the moment it is activated, so soon after that, you will notice the optimized performance of your Internet sites and the decreased load on the server. Many Internet sites use the Memcached system to boost their effectiveness, including popular ones such as Reddit and Wikipedia.
