Memcached is a widely used data caching system, which can accelerate the loading speed and the overall performance of your Internet sites tremendously if 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 if a customer conducts a search for a certain product on your site, for instance, the database won’t have to be accessed to return the results and the whole procedure will be executed much quicker. This goes for all kinds of database-powered apps and not only for e-shops, since every time a given page is accessed, the application sends a database request to get the content that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your website open considerably faster, but it will also produce much less load. If any data in the database is edited, the cached replies will also be ‘refreshed’, so the site visitors will not see any outdated info.
Memcached in Cloud Hosting
If you host script-driven websites in a cloud hosting account with us, you will be able to add the Memcached object caching system to your web hosting plan with just a couple of clicks of the mouse via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantly and, since the needed extension is pre-installed on our advanced cloud web hosting platform, you can begin using it right away. To give you more flexibility, we offer two different upgrades related to the number of instances (i.e. how many websites will use Memcached) and to the memory that Memcached will use. The latter is offered in increments of 16 MB and you can order memory whenever you wish. Naturally, the more memory the Memcached caching system is permitted to use, the more content it will cache, so if you manage a large-size site with lots of content, you may need more memory in order to be able to make full use of the power that Memcached can give you.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you choose to host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account, you can take advantage of Memcached easily, as the distributed memory object caching platform’s setup requires several clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The extension that is required is pre-installed on our semi-dedicated servers, so you can start using the Memcached caching platform the moment you add it to your semi-dedicated server account. You will be able to select how many sites can use it and how much data it will cache, in other words – there are two different upgradable features – the instances and the system memory. You can order more of both, so if one of your sites becomes extremely busy, for instance, you can always get more memory. Our system is unbelievably flexible in this regard and we do not bind a given number of instances to a fixed amount of system memory. You can use Memcached to improve the loading speed of any script-powered website, including those that are based on widely used Internet apps, such as WordPress or Joomla.
Memcached in VPS Servers
When you purchase a VPS server from our company, you will be able to use Memcached at no additional fee, as the distributed memory caching platform comes with all servers ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. Even if you run content-loaded Internet sites, you’ll be able to optimize their performance without efforts and the reduced load on your VPS will enable you to keep your current VPS hosting plan instead of migrating to a more powerful one. The amount of memory that Memcached can use to store content depends on the package that you’re using, but even with a less powerful one, you will have at least several hundred megabytes, which is considerably more than the amount of memory you’d get with a shared hosting plan, so the website performance boost will be substantial. You can use the Memcached platform with any database-powered app, irrespective of whether you have set it up on your own or you are using a ready-made one like OpenCart, Joomla or WordPress.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers
Each dedicated server that is ordered with our Hepsia Control Panel comes with Memcached already installed by default, so you can begin using the distributed memory object caching system as soon as your dedicated server is completely functional, without having to activate or upgrade anything. The amount of system memory that Memcached can employ depends on the server that you have chosen, but since our servers are very powerful and due to the fact that it is likely that you will host resource-intensive websites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the caching system can use is three gigabytes. This will enable you to accelerate the performance of very popular websites effortlessly and you will note the difference shortly after the Memcached system begins caching database queries. You can make full use of the Memcached caching system with any database-powered website, including those based on popular CMSs such as WordPress and Joomla.
