Memcached is a widely used data caching platform, which can enhance the speed and the overall performance of your sites significantly in case they use a database or an API. This is achieved by caching the calls to the database/API and the replies that are delivered, so if a user conducts a search for a certain product on your Internet site, for example, the database will not have to be accessed to display the results and the whole operation will be completed significantly quicker. This is valid for all sorts of database-powered apps and not only for e-shops, since every time a specific web page is opened, the app connects to its database to get the data that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your website load considerably faster, but it will also produce much less load. If any data in the database is updated, the cached responses will also be updated, so the visitors will not see any old info.
Memcached in Shared Hosting
When you host script-driven websites in a shared hosting account with our company, you will be able to add the Memcached caching system to your plan with just a few clicks through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantly and, since the extension needed for it is pre-installed on our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform, you can start using it straight away. To give you more flexibility, we offer two different upgrades related to the number of instances (in other words – how many websites will use Memcached) and to the system memory that the Memcached caching system will use. The latter is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order as much memory as you need. Naturally, the more memory Memcached is allowed to use, the more data it will cache, so in case you have a high-traffic site with a lot of data, you may need more memory to be able to take full advantage of the power that Memcached can offer you.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you get any of our semi-dedicated server packages, you’ll find Memcached as an optional upgrade in the Upgrades part of the Hepsia Control Panel, so if you wish to use it for any of the websites hosted in your account, you can add it with just a few clicks. The data caching platform is ideal for any script-driven web application like Joomla, WordPress, or even an in-house made one, and based on your needs, you’ll be able to choose two different features – how many sites will use the Memcached caching platform, i.e. 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 tied to each other, so if you have a frequently visited Internet site with a lot of data, you can order one instance and a larger amount of system memory. Memcached will accelerate the overall performance of your websites shortly after you activate it and both you and your website visitors will enjoy much faster loading speeds.
Memcached in VPS Web Hosting
Memcached is available as standard with all VPS web hosting packages ordered with our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel. The extension it needs in order to perform properly is compiled when the Virtual Private Server is set up, so you can begin using the distributed memory object caching platform the moment your brand-new VPS is completely operational. The system memory that the Memcached platform can use depends on the given VPS plan, but even with the lower-end plans, several hundred megabytes will be at your disposal only for this platform. This will permit you to optimize the performance of multiple websites hosted on the VPS simultaneously and to lower the load on the virtual machine even if you manage resource-requiring script-powered online portals with many viewers. The caching platform can be used with any script – Mambo, Joomla or Drupal, or a custom-made script, and you will detect the better performance soon after you begin using it.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting
Memcached is available free of charge with all dedicated servers hosting packages that we’re offering and the only condition is that the dedicated machine must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can use the object caching system for any database-driven website, including those based on popular Internet apps – for example, a WordPress weblog or a Joomla-driven social network. Each dedicated server is tied to a specific amount of memory that the Memcached caching system can use, but the minimum amount you’ll get is 3 gigabytes, which is sufficient enough to improve the loading speed of very large sites seriously, as this memory will be dedicated to storing the cached info. The system will begin caching info as soon as it’s activated, so soon thereafter, you’ll note the enhanced overall performance of your websites and the reduced load. Lots of sites use the Memcached system to enhance their efficiency, including famous ones like Reddit and Wikipedia.
