Memcached is a commonly used content caching system, which can increase the loading speed and the overall performance of your sites considerably if they use an API or a database. This is accomplished by caching the requests to the API/database and the replies that are delivered, so when someone conducts a search for some product on your site, for example, the database won’t have to be accessed to return the results and the entire operation will be completed noticeably faster. That goes for all kinds of database-driven apps and not only for online shopping portals, since anytime a page is accessed, the app sends a database query to fetch the data that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your website load considerably faster, but it will also create much less load. If any data in the database is edited, the cached replies will also be ‘refreshed’, so the website visitors will not see any outdated information.
Memcached in Shared Hosting
Memcached is available as an upgrade with each shared hosting plan offered by our company and if you want to use it for any script-based Internet site that you host on our innovative cloud website hosting platform, you will be able to activate it in several easy steps through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. During the process, you’ll get the option to upgrade two separate features – the number of instances and the memory. The first one refers to the number of the websites that can use the Memcached distributed memory object caching system at the same time, so if you need it for several sites, you can get a number of instances. The second one has to do with the total amount of memory that the system will be able to use to cache info, so for multiple websites (or for one resource-hungry site), you should get more memory for better results. The memory is available in increments of 16 MB and more memory can be added at any moment. With Memcached, any script-driven site hosted on our cloud servers will open incredibly fast.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you choose to host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account, you can take advantage of Memcached easily, since the object caching platform’s activation takes a couple of clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. The PHP extension that it requires is already installed on our servers, so you can start using the Memcached caching platform as soon as you add it to your semi-dedicated server account. You’ll be able to choose how many sites can use it and how much information can be cached, i.e. there are two separate upgradable features – the number of instances and the system memory. You can add more of both, so if one of your Internet sites becomes extremely popular, for example, you can always get more memory. Our system is extremely flexible in this regard and we do not bind a specific number of instances to a pre-defined amount of system memory. You can take advantage of Memcached to boost the speed of any script-driven site, including those based on famous web applications, such as Joomla or WordPress.
Memcached in VPS
Memcached is available as standard with all Linux VPS ordered with our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The extension it requires in order to function properly is compiled when the virtual server is set up, so you can start using the memory caching platform as soon as your brand-new Virtual Private Server is fully ready. The system memory that the Memcached platform can employ depends on the particular Virtual Private Server plan, but even with the less powerful ones, several hundred megabytes will be at your disposal for this platform exclusively. This will allow you to optimize the performance of multiple websites hosted on the Virtual Private Server simultaneously and to lower the load even if you manage frequently visited script-driven sites with lots of users. The Memcached platform can be used with any script – Mambo, Joomla or Drupal, or a custom-made script, and you’ll see the better performance soon after you begin using it.
Memcached in Dedicated Hosting
Memcached comes free of charge with all Linux dedicated hosting that we’re offering and the sole condition is that the dedicated server must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can use the memory caching system for any database-driven site, including those that are based on widely used web applications – for example, a WordPress personal diary or a Joomla-driven social networking website. Each dedicated server comes with a specific amount of system memory that the Memcached caching system can use, but the minimum amount you’ll get is 3 gigabytes, which is quite enough to boost the speed of very busy websites seriously, since this very memory will be dedicated to storing the cached info. The system will begin caching info the moment it is activated, so shortly thereafter, you’ll observe the enhanced overall performance of your sites and the lowered load. A lot of Internet sites use the Memcached system to improve their efficiency, among them popular ones like Reddit and Wikipedia.
