Memcached is a commonly used content caching system, which can increase the loading speed and the overall performance of your websites significantly if they use a database or an API. This is accomplished by caching the requests to the database/API and the replies that are delivered, so when a client conducts a search for a specific product on your site, for example, the database will not have to be accessed to show the results and the whole procedure will be completed notably faster. That goes for all sorts of database-driven apps and not only for e-stores, as every time a given page is accessed, the app sends a database query to get the content that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your website open noticeably faster, but it will also produce much less load. If any data in the database is changed, the cached replies will also be updated, so the visitors will not see any old info.
Memcached in Cloud Hosting
If you host script-driven websites in a cloud hosting
account with us, you’ll be able to add the Memcached content caching system to your shared web hosting plan with just a few clicks through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantly 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 (i.e. how many Internet sites will use Memcached) and to the memory that Memcached will use. The latter comes in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order as much memory as you need. Naturally, the more memory Memcached is permitted to use, the more data it will cache, so if you manage a resource-absorbing site with lots of content, you may require more memory so as to be able to make the most of the power that Memcached can give you.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can get the Memcached content caching system as an upgrade with each of our semi-dedicated hosting services
and since it works with any script-driven software application, you can use it for any site that you host on our platform, no matter what application you have used – WordPress, Mambo or Joomla™
, a custom-developed one, etc. You can request the upgrade via the respective section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel from which you administer your semi-dedicated server account, and you can choose two different features – the number of instances and the amount of system memory that they will use. In simple terms, these things indicate the number of the Internet sites that will use the Memcached caching system and how much memory the system will be able to use to cache your content. The two features are ordered separately for more freedom and one instance does not come with a pre-defined amount of memory. You can make full use of the Memcached system with any kind of website and both you and your website visitors will quickly spot the difference in the performance.
Memcached in VPS Web Hosting
You’ll get Memcached with any of the virtual private server
plans that we are offering in case you select Hepsia as your Control Panel and you’ll be able to activate the platform via the Control Panel section with the very same name. The configuration takes several clicks and you’ll notice the difference in the performance of your websites almost immediately. The amount of system memory that the Memcached caching platform can employ to store info depends on the given VPS hosting plan that you’ve chosen, but in any case it will be at least several hundred megabytes, which is more than enough even for multiple content-heavy websites. You can use the Memcached platform with websites powered by WordPress, Joomla™
or any other app and reduce the load on your virtual machine, which will enable you to keep using the current VPS hosting plan rather than switching to a more powerful one, since you simply won’t need it. The Memcached platform is already being used by popular websites like Wikipedia, Reddit and Zynga, which is an evidence of its efficiency.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting
You can unlock the full potential of Memcached with each and every dedicated server
that we’re offering if you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel. A special section in it is dedicated to the data caching system and you can start using Memcached for any site hosted on the machine with just a few clicks of the mouse. You can enhance the overall performance of any Internet site, regardless of what script-driven software application you rely on or how heavy the website is, since the minimum amount of system memory that Memcached will be able to use is 3 GB and this amount increases immensely with the higher-end servers. Soon after the system is activated, it will start caching content every time someone accesses your website, so, as soon as enough data has been cached, you’ll detect the reduced load on your server and the optimized overall performance of the Internet site. The Memcached system is used by a lot of sites, including famous portals such as Wikipedia, Reddit and Zynga, which is a proof of the effectiveness of the caching system.
