Memcached is a famous distributed memory caching system, which can increase the speed and the performance of your websites tremendously if they use an API or a database. This is achieved by caching the calls to the database/API and the replies that are returned, so when somebody searches for a given product on your website, for instance, the database won’t have to be accessed to display the results and the entire task will be executed noticeably quicker. This is valid for all sorts of database-driven apps and not only for online shopping portals, since anytime a page is accessed, the application sends a request to its database to get the content that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your website load much faster, but it will also produce much less load. If any content in the database is edited, the cached responses will also be ‘refreshed’, so the website visitors will not see any out-of-date information.
Memcached in Cloud Web Hosting
Memcached is offered as an upgrade with each cloud web hosting plan offered by us and in case you would like to use it for any script-based website that you host on our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform, you’ll be able to add it in a couple of easy steps through your Hepsia Control Panel. In the meantime, you’ll be given the option to upgrade two different features – the instances and the system memory. The first one is related to the number of the Internet sites that can use the Memcached distributed memory object 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 maximum amount of memory that Memcached will be allowed to use in order to cache content, so for plenty of sites (or for one traffic-hungry site), you should get more memory for better results. The memory comes in increments of 16 MB and more memory can be added at any point. With Memcached, any script-powered site hosted on our servers will load lightning-fast.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you decide to host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account, you can take advantage of Memcached effortlessly, since the distributed memory caching platform’s setup requires a couple of mouse clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. The PHP extension that is required is already installed on our semi-dedicated servers, so you can begin using the Memcached platform as soon as you add it to your account. You will be able to select how many websites can use it and how much info can be cached, in other words – there’re two separate features that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the memory. You can get more of both, so if one of your Internet sites becomes very busy, for instance, you can always order more memory. Our system is pretty flexible in this regard and we do not tie a particular number of instances to a fixed amount of memory. You can take advantage of Memcached to accelerate any script-powered website, including those that are based on popular software applications, such as Joomla or WordPress.
Memcached in VPS Hosting
You’ll get Memcached with any of the virtual private server packages offered by our company when you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel and you will be able to activate the data caching platform via the Control Panel section with the very same name. The configuration requires a couple of mouse clicks and you’ll see the difference in the performance of your Internet sites almost momentarily. The amount of memory that Memcached can use to cache content depends on the particular Virtual Private Server package that you’ve picked, but in any case it will not be less than several hundred MB, which is more than enough even for several large-scale sites. You can use the Memcached platform with Internet sites based on WordPress, Joomla or any other Internet application and decrease the load on your Virtual Private Server, which will allow you to keep using the current plan instead of moving to a more powerful one, since you simply won’t need it. The Memcached platform is already being used by famous websites such as Reddit, Wikipedia and Zynga, which verifies its effectiveness.
Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting
Memcached is available free of charge with all Linux dedicated servers hosting packages 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 distributed memory object caching system for any database-driven website, including those based on famous apps – for example, a WordPress blog or a Joomla-driven community web portal. Each dedicated machine is tied to a particular amount of memory that Memcached can employ, but the minimum you’ll get is 3 GB, which is sufficient enough to optimize the load speed of very popular sites seriously, since this very memory will be dedicated to storing the cached information. The Memcached system will begin storing content as soon as it’s enabled, so shortly thereafter, you’ll detect the enhanced performance of your sites and the reduced server load. Numerous Internet sites use the Memcached system to boost their effectiveness, among them famous ones like Wikipedia and Reddit.
