Memcached is a commonly used distributed memory object caching system, which can increase the speed and the overall performance of your sites significantly in case they use a database or an API. This is accomplished by caching the calls to the API/database and the responses that are returned, so if a customer conducts a search for a specific product on your website, for instance, the database won’t have to be accessed to show the results and the whole task will be executed notably quicker. That goes for all types of database-powered applications and not only for online shops, since anytime a particular web page is accessed, the application sends a database request to get the content that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your site load noticeably faster, but it will also create much less server load. If any data in the database is changed, the cached replies will also be updated, so the users will not see any out-of-date information.
Memcached in Web Hosting
When you host script-driven websites in a web hosting account with our company, you can add the Memcached caching system to your web hosting plan with only a couple of clicks of the mouse through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available momentarily and, since the required extension is already installed on our advanced cloud 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 Internet sites will use Memcached) and to the memory that the Memcached caching system will use. The latter comes in increments of 16 MB and you can add memory as many times as you like. Naturally, the more memory Memcached is allowed to use, the more data it will cache, so in case you own a resource-demanding site with a lot of data, you may require more memory to be able to take full advantage of the power that Memcached can offer you.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you choose to host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to take advantage of Memcached effortlessly, as the distributed memory caching platform’s activation takes a couple of clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia Control Panel. The required extension is already installed on our semi-dedicated servers, so you can begin using Memcached the moment you add it to your account. You will be able to select how many Internet sites can use it and how much info it will cache, in other words – there are two different features that can be upgraded – the instances and the amount of memory. You can order more of both, so if one of your sites becomes very busy, for example, you can always get more memory. Our system is truly flexible in this regard and we do not tie a specific number of instances to a fixed amount of system memory. You can employ Memcached to speed up any script-driven website, including those based on famous Internet apps, such as Joomla or WordPress.
Memcached in VPS Web Hosting
If you buy a virtual private server from us, you will be able to use Memcached at no extra cost, as the data caching platform is offered with all Virtual Private Servers ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. Even if you run content-heavy sites, you will be able to optimize their performance effortlessly and the lowered load on the Virtual Private Server will permit you to keep using your current Virtual Private Server plan instead of moving to a more powerful one. The amount of system memory that Memcached can use to store data depends on the plan that you’re using, but even with a low-end one, you will get at least several hundred megabytes, which is significantly more than the amount of memory you’d get with a shared plan, so the website performance boost will be significant. You can use the Memcached platform with any database-driven web application, irrespective of whether you have built it on your own or you’re using a ready-to-use one like Joomla, OpenCart or WordPress.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting
You can use the full potential of Memcached with every dedicated server offered by us in case you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. A special Control Panel section is dedicated to the object caching system and you can start using Memcached for any site hosted on the server with just a couple of clicks of the mouse. You can boost the performance of any website, irrespective of what script-based app you rely on or how popular the site is, since the minimum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to use is 3 GB and this amount increases seriously with the higher-end dedicated servers. Shortly after the system is enabled, it will begin caching info every time somebody browses your site, so, as soon as enough information has been stored, you will detect the decreased load on the dedicated machine and the enhanced overall performance of the website. The Memcached caching system is used by a lot of websites, among them famous portals like Wikipedia, Reddit and Zynga, which shows the efficiency of the Memcached system.
