Memcached is a famous caching platform, which can increase the speed and the performance of your websites significantly if they use a database or an API. This is achieved by caching the calls to the database/API and the responses that are returned, so when a user conducts a search for a particular product on your website, for instance, the database will not have to be accessed to return the results and the whole task will be executed notably quicker. That goes for all kinds of database-powered apps and not only for e-shops, since every time a web page is visited, the app sends a database request to get the content that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your site load much faster, but it will also produce much less server load. If any content in the database is changed, the cached replies will also be ‘refreshed’, so the users won’t see any outdated info.
Memcached in Cloud Web Hosting
The Memcached distributed memory object caching system is offered as an upgrade with each and every Linux cloud web hosting offered by our company and you’ll be able to start using it as soon as you add it, as the PHP extension that it requires so as to function correctly is pre-installed on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform. You can order the upgrade from the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with each shared hosting plan and a brand new section where you can administer Memcached will show up. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts – the number of instances and the memory, so as to offer you more freedom. The first one shows the number of the Internet sites which can use the Memcached caching system, while the second, which is offered in increments of 16 MB, specifies the maximum size of the content that can be cached by the system. A frequently visited site with a large-sized database may require more memory to take an even greater advantage of Memcached, so in case you wish to upgrade this service, you’ll be able to do it at any given point with a few mouse clicks.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can get the Memcached object caching system as an optional upgrade with each of our semi-dedicated hosting service and since it works with any script-powered software application, you can use it for any Internet site that you host on our platform, no matter what application you have used – Mambo, Joomla or WordPress, a custom-developed app, etc. You can request the upgrade via the respective section of the Hepsia Control Panel from which you administer your semi-dedicated account, and you can choose two separate features – the number of instances and the amount of memory that they will use. In other words, these things indicate the number of the sites that will use the Memcached system and the maximum amount of memory that the system will be able to use to store your data. The two things are ordered independently for more flexibility and one instance does not come with a particular amount of system memory. You can take advantage of Memcached with any type of site and both you and the visitors will quickly notice the difference in the overall performance.
Memcached in VPS Servers
Memcached is available as standard with all VPS servers that are ordered with our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The extension it needs in order to work properly is compiled when the VPS server is set up, so you can start using the memory caching platform once your new Virtual Private Server is completely ready. The memory that Memcached can employ depends on the given Virtual Private Server plan, but even with the lower-end plans, you’ll get several hundred megabytes that will be at your disposal exclusively for this platform. This will allow you to accelerate the performance of numerous websites hosted on the virtual server simultaneously and to reduce the load on the machine even if you’ve got traffic-heavy script-powered web pages with lots of viewers. The Memcached platform can be used with any script – Drupal, Mambo or Joomla, or a custom-made script, and you’ll distinguish the faster overall performance soon after you start using it.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers
When you order any of our dedicated servers and if you select Hepsia as your website hosting Control Panel during the order process, you’ll get the Memcached data caching platform as standard and you can enable it for each Internet site that you host on your server without upgrading or installing anything. It will begin caching info as people access your website, so you’ll detect the result of using it soon after that. The minimum amount of memory that will be available to the Memcached caching platform is three gigabytes and normally, the more powerful the dedicated package, the more system memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will permit you to take advantage of the platform for numerous sites or for a very heavy website without compromising its efficacy. Memcached will permit you to optimize the load speed of any database-powered website in no time – a Joomla portal, a WordPress weblog, an OpenCart web shop, etc., and to boost the overall performance of your dedicated machine.
