Memcached is a popular caching system, which can enhance the speed and the overall performance of your websites significantly if they use an API or a database. This is accomplished by caching the requests to the API/database and the responses that are delivered, so if someone conducts a search for a particular product on your Internet site, for instance, the database won’t have to be accessed to show the results and the entire task will be performed noticeably faster. That goes for all sorts of database-powered applications and not only for online shops, since every time a particular page is accessed, the app sends a request to its database to fetch the data that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your site load significantly faster, but it will also produce much less load. If any data in the database is edited, the cached responses will also be ‘refreshed’, so the site visitors will not see any outdated info.
Memcached in Web Hosting
You can make use of the Memcached content caching system with all web hosting service that we’re offering. It’s offered as an optional upgrade, which you can acquire with only a few clicks through your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. It needs an extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud web hosting platform, so you can begin using Memcached as soon as you order it. The upgrade is separated into two parts, which will offer you more freedom depending on the Internet sites that you’d like to use it for. The first part reveals the number of the Internet sites that will use Memcached, or the ‘instances’, while the second one is related to the memory, i.e. to how much content the system will be able to cache. You can add more memory in increments of 16 MB and the more memory you have, the more data will be cached, which may be a good idea for heavy-traffic websites with large-sized databases and numerous visitors. In this way, you can improve the loading speed of every script-based Internet site hosted on our servers without any effort.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can get the Memcached memory caching system as an optional upgrade with all our Linux semi-dedicated hosting service and since it works with any script-driven app, you can use it for each website that you host on our servers, irrespective of what app you have used – WordPress, Mambo or Joomla, a custom-built app, etc. You can request the upgrade from the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel from which you manage your semi-dedicated account, and you can choose two different things – the number of instances and the amount of memory that they will use. In other words, these things determine the number of the Internet sites that will use Memcached and the maximum amount of system memory that the system will be able to use in order to cache your data. The two things are ordered separately for more freedom and one instance does not come bundled with a fixed amount of system memory. You can use the Memcached system with any sort of website and both you and the visitors will swiftly detect the difference in the performance.
Memcached in VPS Servers
Memcached is included by default with every VPS server that we’re offering as long as you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel, so you won’t need to pay any extra cash to be able to use the full power of this distributed memory caching system. The more powerful VPS hosting plan you choose, the more memory Memcached will have for information storage purposes, but you’ll have at least several hundred megabytes at all times, which is much more than the amount of memory you would get with a shared plan. This will enable you to use the Memcached system for numerous websites, irrespective of how popular they are, which in turn goes to say that you can use a less powerful package for them without overloading the VPS. The Memcached caching system is ideal for script-based apps like WordPress, OpenCart, Joomla or Mambo, and you can utilize it even with a custom app. Shortly after you activate the Memcached system, it will begin storing content and you will perceive the optimized performance of your websites.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers
Memcached comes free of charge with all dedicated servers that we’re offering and the one and only condition is that the dedicated machine must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. You can use the caching system for any database-driven Internet site, including those that are based on widely used Internet applications – for example, a WordPress personal diary or a Joomla-driven social network. Each dedicated server comes with a particular amount of memory that Memcached can use, but the minimum you will get is 3 gigabytes, which is quite enough to accelerate the speed of extremely large sites substantially, as this very memory will be dedicated to storing the cached info. The Memcached system will start storing information the moment it’s activated, so shortly thereafter, you will detect the improved performance of your sites and the lowered load. Plenty of Internet sites use the Memcached system to improve their efficacy, among them popular ones like Wikipedia and Reddit.
