Memcached is a commonly used object caching platform, which can accelerate the loading speed and the performance of your Internet sites significantly in case they use an API or a database. This is achieved by caching the calls to the API/database and the responses that are delivered, so if a customer conducts a search for a specific product on your site, for instance, the database won’t have to be accessed to show the results and the whole task will be executed much quicker. This is valid for all kinds of database-powered applications and not only for web shops, as anytime a page is opened, the application connects to its database to get the data that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your website load noticeably faster, but it will also produce much less load. If any data in the database is updated, the cached responses will also be ‘refreshed’, so the users won’t see any outdated info.
Memcached in Cloud Hosting
If you host script-powered websites in a cloud hosting account with our company, you’ll be able to add the Memcached content caching system to your hosting package with only a few clicks through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available immediately and, since the necessary PHP extension is already installed on our advanced cloud web hosting platform, you can start using it straight away. To give you more flexibility, we offer two separate upgrades related to the number of instances (in other words – how many websites will use Memcached) and to the amount of memory that Memcached will use. The latter comes in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order memory as many times as you want. Logically, the more memory the Memcached caching system is permitted to use, the more content it will cache, so in case you manage a large-scale website with lots of content, you may need more memory to be able to make full use of the power that Memcached can give you.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can get the Memcached data caching system as an upgrade with all our semi-dedicated hosting plans and since it works with any script-based software app, you can use it for every website that you host on our platform, regardless of what application you have used – Mambo, WordPress or Joomla, a custom-developed app, etc. You can request the upgrade through the respective section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel from which you administer your semi-dedicated account, and you can select two separate features – the number of instances and the amount of system memory that they will use. To put it simply, these things specify the number of the Internet sites that will use the Memcached system and the amount of memory that the system will be able to use in order to store your information. The two things are ordered independently for more flexibility and one instance does not come bundled with a fixed amount of system memory. You can make the most of Memcached with any sort of site and both you and the visitors will swiftly distinguish the difference in the performance.
Memcached in VPS Servers
When you purchase a VPS server from us, you’ll be able to use Memcached at no additional charge, as the distributed memory object caching platform comes with all VPS servers ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Even if you manage content-rich sites, you’ll be able to optimize their overall performance effortlessly and the decreased load on your VPS server will enable you to continue using your current VPS hosting plan instead of migrating to a more powerful one. The amount of memory that Memcached can use to cache information depends on the plan that you’re using, but even with a less powerful one, you’ll get at least several hundred MB, which is considerably more than the amount of memory you’d get with a shared hosting plan, so the website performance boost will be considerable. You can take advantage of Memcached with any database-powered web app, regardless of whether you have created it on your own or you are using a ready-to-use one such as OpenCart, Joomla or WordPress.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers
You can use the full potential of Memcached with each and every dedicated server that we are offering in case you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. A special Control Panel section is dedicated to the memory caching system and you can start using Memcached for any Internet site hosted on the dedicated server with only a couple of mouse clicks. You can enhance the overall performance of any Internet site, irrespective of what script-based web application you rely on or how large the website is, as the minimum amount of system memory that Memcached will be able to employ is 3 gigabytes and this amount grows tremendously with the higher-end servers. Soon after the caching system is enabled, it will begin caching content every time somebody accesses your website, so, as soon as sufficient information has been cached, you will distinguish the decreased load on the dedicated server and the enhanced performance of your site. Memcached is used by a lot of sites, including famous portals such as Zynga, Reddit and Wikipedia, which proves the effectiveness of the Memcached caching system.
