Memcached is a famous content caching platform, which can increase the loading speed and the performance of your Internet sites tremendously in case they use a database or an API. This is accomplished by caching the requests to the API/database and the replies that are delivered, so when somebody searches for some product on your site, for instance, the database will not have to be accessed to return the results and the entire task will be executed notably faster. That goes for all sorts of database-driven apps and not only for online stores, as every time a page is opened, the app sends a request to its database to get the content that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your website load considerably faster, but it will also produce much less load. If any content in the database is changed, the cached replies will also be ‘refreshed’, so the website visitors won’t see any out-of-date information.
Memcached in Cloud Website Hosting
The Memcached object caching system is offered as an optional upgrade with every Linux cloud website hosting plan that we’re offering and you will be able to begin using it once you add it, since the extension that it needs so as to function correctly is already available on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform. You can order the upgrade via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with every shared web hosting plan and a brand-new Control Panel section where you can manage Memcached will show up. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts – the instances and the amount of memory, so as to give you more freedom. The first one refers to the number of the sites which can use the Memcached caching system, whereas the second one, which is offered in increments of 16 megabytes, specifies the total size of the content that can be cached by the system. A traffic-heavy site with a very large database may require more memory in order to take an even bigger advantage of Memcached, so in case you need to upgrade this feature, you will be able to do it at any moment with a couple of clicks.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you obtain any of our semi-dedicated server plans, you’ll find Memcached as an optional feature in the Upgrades section of your Hepsia Control Panel, so if you wish to use it for any of the sites hosted in your semi-dedicated server hosting account, you can enable it with only a few clicks. The object caching platform is ideal for any script-driven application such as Joomla, WordPress, or even an in-house made one, and depending on your necessities, you will be able to choose two different features – how many sites will use Memcached, in other words – the number of instances; and how much info will be stored, i.e. the amount of system memory that the platform will use. The two features are not bound to each other, so if you run a traffic-hungry website with lots of data, you can get one instance and a larger amount of system memory. The Memcached platform will accelerate the performance of your websites shortly after you activate it and both you and your visitors will enjoy much better load speeds.
Memcached in VPS Servers
You will get Memcached with each of the VPS server packages that we are offering if you select Hepsia as your Control Panel and you will be able to activate the content caching platform via the Control Panel section with the exact same name. The setup requires a few clicks and you will notice the difference in the overall performance of your Internet sites almost instantly. The amount of system memory that the Memcached platform can use to cache content depends on the given VPS package that you’ve selected, but in any case it won’t be less than several hundred megabytes, which is more than enough even for multiple content-heavy sites. You can use Memcached with sites driven by WordPress, Joomla or any other Internet application and lower the load on your server, which will allow you to continue using the current Virtual Private Server plan instead of migrating to a more powerful one, as you simply won’t need it. The Memcached platform is already being used by popular websites like Zynga, Reddit and Wikipedia, which confirms its effectiveness.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers
You can make use of the full potential of Memcached with every dedicated server offered by us if you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. A section in it is dedicated to the caching system and you can start using Memcached for any website hosted on the dedicated machine with just a few mouse clicks. You can boost the performance of any website, irrespective of what script-powered software application you rely on or how busy the website is, since the minimum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to use is 3 gigabytes and this amount rises significantly with the more powerful dedicated servers. Shortly after the system is enabled, it will start caching data every time somebody visits your website, so, once enough data has been stored, you will detect the lowered load on your dedicated machine and the improved performance of the Internet site. The Memcached system is used by plenty of websites, among them famous portals such as Zynga, Reddit and Wikipedia, which is a confirmation of the effectiveness of the Memcached caching system.
