Memcached is a widely used caching system, which can enhance the loading speed and the performance of your Internet sites greatly 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 delivered, so if a visitor conducts a search for a particular product on your Internet site, for instance, the database won’t have to be accessed to return the results and the whole task will be carried out significantly faster. That goes for all kinds of database-powered apps and not only for Internet shops, as every time a specific page is visited, the application sends a request to its database to get the content that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your website open noticeably faster, but it will also create much less server load. If any data in the database is updated, the cached responses will also be ‘refreshed’, so the website visitors will not see any out-of-date information.
Memcached in Web Hosting
When you host script-powered sites in a web hosting account with our company, you’ll be able to add the Memcached content caching system to your shared hosting plan with just a few clicks via your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available momentarily and, since the needed PHP extension is pre-installed on our leading-edge cloud website hosting platform, you can start using it right away. To give you more flexibility, we offer two separate upgrades related to the number of instances (in other words – how many Internet sites will use Memcached) and to the system memory that the Memcached caching system will use. The latter comes in increments of 16 megabytes and you can add as much memory as you need. Logically, the more memory the Memcached caching system is allowed to use, the more data it will cache, so if you own a traffic-consuming website with lots of content, you may need more memory so as to be able to make the most of the power that Memcached can offer you.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can add the Memcached content caching platform to any of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages that we offer and make use of its full capacity for any script-powered website hosted by us. The upgrade is accessible through the Hepsia Control Panel and you can select two things – the number of instances and the amount of system memory. These things specify the number of the sites that can use Memcached and how much memory it will use to store your data. You can choose them separately, since one instance is not linked to a fixed amount of system memory, so you can use a lot of memory for a single traffic-heavy Internet site, for instance. This upgrade is available in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order as much memory as you wish. The platform can be used with any script-driven website irrespective of its type, including those that are based on popular Internet applications like WordPress, Joomla or Drupal, and lots of companies such as Wikipedia and Zynga are already using it to boost the speed of their websites.
Memcached in VPS
If you purchase a virtual private server from our company, you will be able to use Memcached at no additional price, as the content caching platform is available with all VPSs ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. Even if you’ve got resource-hungry websites, you can optimize their overall performance with no effort and the reduced load on your VPS will enable you to keep your current Virtual Private Server package instead of migrating to a more powerful one. The amount of system memory that Memcached can use to store info depends on the plan that you are using, but even with a low-end one, you’ll have at least several hundred MB, which is significantly more than what you’d get with a shared web hosting package, so the website performance boost will be noticeable. You can take advantage of Memcached with any database-powered app, regardless of whether you’ve created it yourself or you are using a ready-to-use one like WordPress, OpenCart or Joomla.
Memcached in Dedicated Hosting
Memcached comes free of charge with all dedicated servers hosting packages offered by our company and the only requirement is that the dedicated machine must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can use the content caching system for any database-powered website, including those that are based on widely used web-based apps – for instance, a WordPress online journal or a Joomla-powered social network. Each dedicated machine comes with a different amount of memory that the Memcached caching system can use, but the minimum you’ll get is 3 GB, which is quite enough to optimize the load speed of very heavy sites substantially, since this memory will be dedicated to storing the cached information. The system will begin caching data the moment it’s enabled, so soon after that, you will see the enhanced performance of your Internet sites and the lowered load on your server. Lots of sites use Memcached to increase their efficacy, including famous ones such as Wikipedia and Reddit.
