Memcached is a widespread content caching system, which can increase the loading speed and the performance of your websites substantially 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 somebody conducts a search for a certain product on your website, for instance, the database won’t have to be accessed to display the results and the whole task will be completed noticeably quicker. That goes for all types of database-driven apps and not only for online shopping portals, as every time a page is visited, the application sends a query to its database to get the data that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your website open considerably faster, but it will also generate much less load. If any content in the database is edited, the cached replies will also be ‘refreshed’, so the users will not see any outdated information.
Memcached in Cloud Hosting
The Memcached memory caching system is offered as an upgrade with each cloud hosting offered by our company and you will be able to start using it once you add it, as the extension that it needs in order to function properly is already available on our avant-garde cloud platform. You can order the upgrade from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is available with each hosting package and a brand new Control Panel section where you can administer Memcached will appear. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts – the number of instances and the system memory, so as to give you more flexibility. The first one refers to the number of the Internet sites which can use Memcached, whereas the second, which is available in increments of 16 megabytes, defines the total size of the content that can be cached by the system. A heavy-traffic site with a large database may require more memory so as to take an even greater advantage of Memcached, so if you wish to upgrade this feature, you will be able to do it at any moment with several mouse clicks.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can add the Memcached object caching platform to any of the semi-dedicated hosting that we are offering and use its full potential for any script-powered site hosted on our servers. The upgrade is accessible through the Hepsia Control Panel and you can choose two things – the instances and the amount of memory. These things specify how many sites can use the Memcached caching platform and the amount of system memory that it will use to store your data. You can choose them independently, since one instance is not tied to a specific amount of memory, so you can use lots of memory for one large-sized Internet site, for instance. This feature comes in increments of 16 MB and you can get as much memory as you want. The Memcached platform can be used with any script-driven website regardless of its type, including those based on widely used software applications like Joomla, Drupal or WordPress, and many companies such as Zynga and Wikipedia are already using it to improve the performance of their websites.
Memcached in VPS Web Hosting
You’ll get Memcached with each of the virtual private server plans that we’re offering in case you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to activate the data caching platform through the section with the very same name. The setup requires a couple of clicks and you’ll detect the difference in the performance of your websites almost immediately. The amount of memory that the Memcached caching platform can employ to store information depends on the particular VPS hosting package that you have chosen, but at any rate it won’t be less than several hundred MB, which is more than enough even for multiple regularly visited Internet sites. You can use the Memcached platform with Internet sites driven by WordPress, Joomla or any other web-based application and lower the load on your virtual machine, which will allow you to continue using the current VPS hosting plan instead of switching to a more powerful one, as you will simply not need it. The Memcached platform is already being used by famous websites such as Zynga, Reddit and Wikipedia, which shows its efficiency.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting
You can take advantage of the full potential of Memcached with every dedicated server that we offer in case you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. A section in it is dedicated to the distributed memory caching system and you can start using Memcached for any website hosted on the server with just several clicks. You can enhance the performance of any site, regardless of what script-powered software app you’re using or how large the site is, as the minimum amount of system memory that Memcached will be able to use is 3 GB and this amount increases immensely with the more powerful servers. Soon after the system is activated, it will start caching content each time somebody opens your site, so, as soon as enough info has been stored, you’ll detect the lowered load on your server and the improved overall performance of your website. The Memcached system is used by plenty of sites, including popular portals like Reddit, Wikipedia and Zynga, which is a proof of the effectiveness of the Memcached caching system.
