Memcached is a commonly used data caching platform, which can increase the loading speed and the performance of your Internet sites substantially if they use a database or an API. This is achieved by caching the requests to the API/database and the replies that are delivered, so when a user conducts a search for some product on your website, for example, the database won’t have to be accessed to return the results and the whole operation will be executed much quicker. That goes for all sorts of database-powered apps and not only for online shopping portals, as every time a specific web page is opened, the application sends a database query to fetch the data that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your site load considerably faster, but it will also produce much less server load. If any data in the database is edited, the cached replies will also be updated, so the website visitors will not see any old information.
Memcached in Cloud Web Hosting
You can take advantage of the Memcached memory caching system with all cloud web hosting that we are offering. It is available as an optional upgrade, which you can add with just a few clicks of the mouse via your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. It requires a PHP extension, which is already installed on our cloud hosting platform, so you can start using the Memcached caching system once you add it. The upgrade is separated into two parts, which will give you more versatility depending on the sites that you would like to use it for. The first part indicates the number of the Internet sites that will use the Memcached caching system, or the ‘instances’, while the second one refers to the memory, i.e. to how much content the system will be able to cache. You can order more system memory in increments of 16 MB and the more memory you’ve added, the more data will be cached, which may be a very good idea for busy websites with large-sized databases and lots of users. In this way, you can increase the loading speed of any script-based site hosted on our servers without any effort.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can add the Memcached object caching platform to any of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we offer and use its full capacity for any script-driven Internet site hosted by us. The upgrade is offered through the Hepsia Control Panel and you can select two things – the number of instances and the system memory. These things determine the number of the sites that can use the Memcached platform and the amount of system memory that it will use to cache your content. You can select them independently, since a given instance is not tied to a fixed amount of system memory, so you can use a lot of memory for one resource-consuming website, for example. This feature comes in increments of 16 MB and you can get as much memory as you wish. The Memcached platform can be used with any script-powered site irrespective of its type, including those that are based on widespread applications like Drupal, WordPress or Joomla, and many companies like Wikipedia and Zynga are already using it to enhance the overall performance of their sites.
Memcached in VPS Hosting
You’ll get Memcached with each of the virtual private server packages that we offer if you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel and you’ll be able to activate the object caching platform via the Control Panel section with the same name. The configuration takes a couple of clicks and you will see the difference in the overall performance of your Internet sites almost immediately. The amount of memory that the Memcached caching platform can employ to store content depends on the given VPS package that you’ve picked, but in any case it will be at least several hundred MB, which is more than enough even for several traffic-heavy websites. You can use Memcached with Internet sites based on WordPress, Joomla or any other app and decrease the load on your virtual server, which will permit you to continue using the current package rather than moving to a more powerful one, as you simply won’t need it. The Memcached platform is already being used by famous websites like Reddit, Zynga and Wikipedia, which proves its efficacy.
Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting
Each dedicated server 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 your dedicated server is completely operational, without needing to activate or upgrade anything. The amount of system memory that Memcached can employ depends on the server that you’ve selected, but since our servers are rather powerful and due to the fact that it is likely that you’ll host resource-heavy sites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the caching system can use will be 3 gigabytes. This will permit you to enhance the overall performance of very popular sites without effort and you will observe the difference soon after the Memcached system begins caching database requests. You can take full advantage of the Memcached system with any database-driven site, including those based on widely used CMSs such as Joomla and WordPress.
