Memcached is a widely used distributed memory object caching platform, which can enhance the speed and the performance of your Internet sites drastically if they use a database or an API. This is accomplished by caching the requests to the API/database and the replies that are delivered, so when a client searches for a given product on your site, for example, the database won’t have to be accessed to show the results and the entire task will be performed considerably quicker. That goes for all sorts of database-driven applications and not only for e-commerce portals, as every time a given page is visited, the application sends a query to its database to get the content that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your website open noticeably faster, but it will also create much less server load. If any data in the database is updated, the cached replies will also be ‘refreshed’, so the site visitors won’t see any out-of-date info.
Memcached in Web Hosting
If you host script-powered websites in a web hosting account with us, you will be able to add the Memcached data caching system to your shared hosting plan with only a couple of mouse clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantly and, since the extension required for it is already installed on our cutting-edge cloud platform, you can begin using it straight away. To give you more versatility, we offer two separate upgrades related to the number of instances (i.e. how many sites will use Memcached) and to the system memory that Memcached will use. The latter is offered in increments of 16 MB and you can order memory whenever you need. Naturally, the more memory the Memcached caching system is permitted to use, the more data it will cache, so in case you have a resource-requiring website with lots of data, you may need more memory in order to be able to make the most of the power that Memcached can give you.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can add the Memcached distributed memory object caching platform to any of the Linux semi-dedicated servers that we are offering and make use of its full potential for any script-driven site hosted by us. The upgrade is accessible through the Hepsia Control Panel and you can choose two features – the instances and the memory. These things show the number of the websites that can use the Memcached platform and how much memory it will use to cache your information. You can select them independently, since one instance is not bound to a particular amount of memory, so you can use plenty of memory for one large site, for example. This feature comes in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order as much memory as you want. The Memcached platform can be used with any script-powered website regardless of its type, including those based on popular web-based apps like Drupal, Joomla or WordPress, and plenty of companies such as Zynga and Wikipedia are already using it to accelerate the overall performance of their sites.
Memcached in VPS Servers
When you acquire a VPS server from us, you’ll be able to use Memcached at no extra price, as the distributed memory object caching platform is available with all servers ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Even if you manage large-sized sites, you can boost their performance with no effort and the decreased load on the virtual machine will permit you to continue using your current plan instead of migrating to a more powerful one. The amount of memory that the Memcached platform can use to store content depends on the plan that you’re using, but even with a lower-end one, you will have at least several hundred MB, which is significantly more than what you’d get with a shared plan, so the website performance boost will be significant. You can take advantage of the Memcached platform with any database-powered web app, regardless of whether you have set it up on your own or you are using a ready-for-use one such as OpenCart, WordPress or Joomla.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers
Each dedicated server ordered with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel comes with Memcached pre-installed by default, so you can start using this caching system as soon as the server is fully ready, without having to upgrade or install anything. The amount of system memory that Memcached can employ depends on the very server that you’ve picked, but since our servers are very powerful and due to the fact that it is likely that you will host resource-heavy Internet sites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the system can use will be 3 gigabytes. This will enable you to enhance the performance of extremely busy sites without efforts and you’ll detect the difference shortly after the Memcached caching system begins caching database requests. You can make full use of the Memcached system with any database-driven web page, including those that are based on popular Content Management Systems such as Joomla and WordPress.
