Memcached is a widespread distributed memory caching platform, which can boost the speed and the overall performance of your sites significantly in case they use an API or a database. This is achieved by caching the requests to the API/database and the replies that are delivered, so if somebody conducts a search for a given product on your Internet site, for instance, the database will not have to be accessed to show the results and the whole procedure will be executed notably faster. This goes for all sorts of database-powered applications and not only for web stores, as every time a page is opened, the app sends a database query to fetch the content that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your site open considerably faster, but it will also produce much less load. If any data in the database is modified, the cached responses will also be ‘refreshed’, so the site visitors will not see any old info.
Memcached in Cloud Hosting
You can make use of the Memcached distributed memory caching system with all Linux cloud hosting packages that we’re offering. It is offered as an upgrade, which you can enable with just a few clicks of the mouse through your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. It requires an extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud web hosting platform, so you can start using the Memcached caching system as soon as you order it. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts, which will give you more flexibility depending on the Internet sites that you would like to use it for. The first part indicates the number of the websites that will use the Memcached caching system, or the so-called ‘instances’, whereas the second one is related to the memory, in other words – to how much content the system will be able to cache. You can get more system memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you have ordered, the more data will be cached, which may be a very good idea for heavy-traffic sites with large databases and a lot of visitors. In this way, you can improve the speed of every script-powered website hosted on our servers effortlessly.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you acquire any of our semi-dedicated server plans, you will find Memcached as an optional upgrade in the Upgrades part of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so if you’d like to use it for any of the Internet sites hosted in the account, you can add it with just a few clicks of the mouse. The distributed memory caching platform is suitable for any script-driven software application such as WordPress, Joomla, or even a tailor-made app, and depending on your demands, you’ll be able to choose two separate features – how many sites will use Memcached, in other words – 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 things are not tied to each other, so if you’ve got a regularly visited website with a lot of data, you can get one instance and a larger amount of memory. The Memcached caching platform will improve the performance of your Internet sites soon after you activate it and both you and your site visitors will enjoy much better loading times.
Memcached in VPS Hosting
When you get a virtual private server from our company, you’ll be able to use Memcached at no additional charge, as the object caching platform comes with all servers ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. Even if you manage regularly visited websites, you can optimize their overall performance without effort and the decreased load on your virtual server will permit you to keep your current VPS package rather than upgrading to a more powerful one. The amount of memory that the Memcached caching platform can use to store content depends on the package that you are using, but even with a lower-end one, you’ll get no less than several hundred megabytes, which is considerably more than what you’d get with a shared web hosting package, so the website performance boost will be incredible. You can take advantage of Memcached with any database-powered web app, no matter if you’ve developed it on your own or you are using a ready-to-use one like OpenCart, Joomla or WordPress.
Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting
Memcached comes for free with all dedicated web hosting that we’re offering and the one and only requirement is that the dedicated server must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. You can use the caching system for any database-driven Internet site, including those based on famous applications – for example, a WordPress online diary or a Joomla-powered social networking site. Each server is tied to a particular amount of memory that the Memcached system can use, but the minimum you will get is 3 gigabytes, which is sufficient enough to enhance the loading speed of extremely heavy websites significantly, as this memory will be dedicated to storing the cached data. The system will begin storing data as soon as it is enabled, so shortly after that, you will detect the optimized performance of your Internet sites and the reduced load on the server. Plenty of websites use Memcached to increase their efficacy, among them popular ones such as Wikipedia and Reddit.
