Memcached is a popular object caching platform, which can enhance the loading speed and the performance of your websites significantly in case they use an API or a database. This is accomplished by caching the calls to the database/API and the responses that are returned, so when a client searches for some product on your site, for instance, the database will not have to be accessed to display the results and the whole operation will be executed significantly faster. This goes for all kinds of database-powered applications and not only for e-commerce portals, since anytime a given page is opened, the app sends a database request to fetch the data that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your site load much faster, but it will also create much less server load. If any data in the database is changed, the cached responses will also be ‘refreshed’, so the users won’t see any outdated info.
Memcached in Cloud Web Hosting
If you host script-powered sites in a cloud web hosting
account with us, you will be able to add the Memcached caching system to your hosting plan with just a couple of mouse clicks through your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available momentarily and, since the PHP extension required for it is already installed on our cutting-edge cloud platform, you can start using it right away. To give you more versatility, we offer two separate upgrades related to the number of instances (i.e. how many sites will use Memcached) and to the amount of memory that the Memcached caching system will use. The latter is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order memory as many times as you need. Naturally, the more memory Memcached is permitted to use, the more content it will cache, so in case you own a traffic-consuming website with lots of content, you may require more memory to be able to make full use of the power that Memcached can give you.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you buy one of our semi-dedicated server
plans, you will find Memcached as an optional upgrade in the Upgrades section of the Hepsia Control Panel, so if you want to use it for any of the websites hosted in the semi-dedicated account, you can enable it with just a couple of mouse clicks. The data caching platform is perfect for any script-based web app like WordPress, Joomla™
, or even a custom-built one, and depending on your requirements, you will be able to choose two separate things – how many websites will use the Memcached caching platform, i.e. the number of instances; and how much content will be stored, in other words – the amount of memory that the platform will use. The two things are not bound to each other, so if you run a high-demand website with lots of content, you can get one instance and a larger amount of system memory. Memcached will enhance the overall performance of your websites shortly after you activate it and both you and your visitors will enjoy much better loading times.
Memcached in VPS Hosting
You will get Memcached with any of the virtual private server
packages offered by our company if you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel and you will be able to activate the platform through the section with the very same name. The activation requires several clicks and you’ll notice the difference in the overall performance of your Internet sites almost instantly. The amount of memory that Memcached can take advantage of to cache content depends on the given VPS package that you’ve picked, but at any rate it won’t be less than several hundred megabytes, which is more than enough even for multiple content-loaded Internet sites. You can use Memcached with sites driven by WordPress, Joomla™
or any other Internet application and reduce the load on your virtual server, which will enable you to keep using the current package rather than migrating to a more powerful one, as you simply won’t need it. The Memcached platform is already being used by popular websites like Wikipedia, Reddit and Zynga, which confirms its effectiveness.
Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting
You can make use of the full potential of Memcached with each and every dedicated server
offered by our company if you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. A special Control Panel section is dedicated to the memory caching system and you can start using Memcached for any Internet site hosted on the dedicated machine with only a few clicks. You can accelerate the performance of any site, no matter what script-driven application you’re using or how heavy the website is, as the minimum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to employ is 3 GB and this amount rises substantially with the more powerful dedicated servers. Soon after the caching system is activated, it will begin caching info every time somebody visits your site, so, once enough information has been cached, you’ll distinguish the reduced load on your server and the optimized overall performance of the site. Memcached is being used by lots of websites, including popular portals like Wikipedia, Reddit and Zynga, which is an evidence of the effectiveness of the Memcached system.
