Memcached is a widely used data caching system, which can improve the loading speed and the overall performance of your sites significantly if they use a database or an API. This is achieved by caching the calls to the API/database and the responses that are delivered, so if a visitor searches for some product on your Internet site, for example, the database won’t have to be accessed to return the results and the entire task will be carried out noticeably faster. This goes for all types of database-powered apps and not only for e-shops, as anytime a specific page is visited, the app connects to its database to fetch the content that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your site open noticeably faster, but it will also generate much less load. If any data in the database is changed, the cached responses will also be ‘refreshed’, so the users will not see any outdated information.
Memcached in Cloud Hosting
If you host script-based websites in a cloud hosting account with us, you can add Memcached to your shared hosting plan with just a few clicks of the mouse via your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available momentarily and, since the needed extension is pre-installed on our innovative cloud website hosting platform, you can start using it right away. To give you more versatility, we offer two separate upgrades related to the number of instances (in other words – how many sites will use Memcached) and to the amount of memory that Memcached will use. The latter comes in increments of 16 MB and you can order memory as many times as you like. Logically, the more memory Memcached is permitted to use, the more content it will cache, so if you have a resource-requiring site with a lot of content, you may need more memory to be able to take full advantage of the power that Memcached can give you.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you choose to host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you can take advantage of Memcached effortlessly, since the content caching platform’s setup takes a couple of clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. The required extension is already installed on our semi-dedicated servers, so you can start using the Memcached caching platform the moment you add it to your account. You will be able to select how many Internet sites can use it and how much information can be cached, i.e. there are two different upgradable features – the instances and the system memory. You can order more of both, so if one of your websites becomes extremely popular, for example, you can always get more memory. Our system is extremely flexible in this regard and we do not bind a particular number of instances to a pre-defined amount of system memory. You can take advantage of Memcached to accelerate any script-driven Internet site, including those based on popular software apps, such as WordPress or Joomla.
Memcached in VPS Hosting
You will get Memcached with any of the virtual private server plans offered by our company if you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to activate the memory caching platform through the section with the same name. The setup requires a couple of clicks and you’ll distinguish the difference in the overall performance of your websites almost momentarily. The amount of memory that the Memcached platform can take advantage of to cache info depends on the particular VPS plan that you have picked, but at any rate it won’t be less than several hundred megabytes, which is more than enough even for multiple traffic-heavy websites. You can use Memcached with websites powered by WordPress, Joomla or any other application and lower the load on your VPS server, which will permit you to keep using the current package instead of migrating to a more powerful one, since you will simply not need it. Memcached is already being used by popular websites such as Reddit, Zynga and Wikipedia, which shows its effectiveness.
Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting
Any dedicated server that is ordered with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel comes with Memcached pre-installed by default, so you can begin using the distributed memory object caching system the moment the server is assembled, without having to install or upgrade anything. The amount of system memory that Memcached can use depends on the server that you have selected, but as our servers are rather powerful and given the fact that it’s likely that you will host resource-demanding websites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the system can use will be three gigabytes. This will allow you to optimize the overall performance of very busy sites without effort and you’ll notice the difference shortly after the Memcached system starts caching database calls. You can use the Memcached system with any database-powered online portal, including those that are based on widely used CMSs like WordPress and Joomla.
