Memcached is a widely used data caching platform, which can enhance the loading speed and the performance of your Internet sites considerably in case 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 certain product on your Internet site, for example, the database won’t have to be accessed to show the results and the entire task will be performed considerably quicker. That goes for all kinds of database-powered apps and not only for online stores, since anytime a page is opened, the app connects to its database to get the content that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your website load noticeably faster, but it will also create much less server load. If any data in the database is modified, the cached responses will also be updated, so the visitors will not see any out-of-date info.
Memcached in Hosting
Memcached is offered as an optional upgrade with each hosting package offered by our company and in case you wish to use it for any script-driven site that you host on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform, you’ll be able to add it in a few easy steps via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. During the process, you will be given the option to upgrade two different things – the instances and the system memory. The first one refers to the number of the Internet sites that can use the Memcached distributed memory object caching system simultaneously, 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 data, so for lots of websites (or for one traffic-intensive site), you should order more memory for better results. The memory is available in increments of 16 MB and more memory can be added at any time. With the Memcached caching system, each script-driven website hosted on our cloud servers will open amazingly fast.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you decide to host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to take advantage of Memcached effortlessly, since the caching platform’s activation requires several clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. The PHP extension that it requires is pre-installed on our servers, so you can start using the Memcached platform as soon as you add it to your account. You’ll be able to choose how many sites can use it and how much information can be cached, i.e. there’re two different features that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the system memory. You can add more of both, so if one of your Internet sites becomes extremely busy, for instance, you can always order more memory. Our system is quite flexible in this regard and we don’t bind a specific number of instances to a pre-defined amount of memory. You can take advantage of Memcached to boost the speed of any script-powered site, including those based on widely used web applications, such as WordPress or Joomla.
Memcached in VPS Web Hosting
You’ll get Memcached with each of the virtual private server plans offered by us if you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel and you will be able to activate the memory caching platform via the section with the very same name. The setup takes a few clicks of the mouse and you will notice the difference in the performance of your sites almost immediately. The amount of memory that the Memcached caching platform can take advantage of to cache data depends on the given Virtual Private Server hosting plan that you’ve chosen, but at any rate it will not be less than several hundred megabytes, which is more than enough even for several traffic-hungry websites. You can use the Memcached platform with websites powered by WordPress, Joomla or any other Internet application and decrease the load on your virtual server, which will enable you to keep using the current Virtual Private Server plan instead of migrating to a more powerful one, as you will simply not need it. The Memcached platform is already being used by popular websites such as Zynga, Reddit and Wikipedia, which verifies its efficacy.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting
You can take advantage of the full potential of Memcached with each and every dedicated server offered by us in case you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel. A special Control Panel section is dedicated to the content caching system and you can begin using Memcached for any Internet site hosted on the dedicated machine with only a couple of mouse clicks. You can improve the performance of any site, regardless of what script-based application you rely on or how busy the Internet site is, as the minimum amount of system memory that Memcached will be able to employ is three gigabytes and this amount rises significantly with the higher-end servers. Shortly after the caching system is enabled, it will start caching data every time someone visits your site, so, as soon as enough content has been cached, you’ll perceive the decreased load and the improved performance of the Internet site. The Memcached caching system is used by lots of sites, including famous portals like Wikipedia, Zynga and Reddit, which verifies the effectiveness of the caching system.
