Memcached is a popular data caching platform, which can accelerate the speed and the overall performance of your Internet sites considerably in case 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 if somebody searches for a particular product on your Internet site, for example, the database will not have to be accessed to show the results and the entire task will be carried out noticeably quicker. That goes for all sorts of database-powered applications and not only for Internet shops, since every time a specific page is visited, the application connects to its database to fetch the data that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your site open considerably faster, but it will also create much less load. If any data in the database is edited, the cached replies will also be ‘refreshed’, so the website visitors won’t see any old information.
Memcached in Cloud Web Hosting
The Memcached distributed memory caching system is offered as an optional upgrade with each cloud web hosting plan offered by our company and you can begin using it once you enable it, as the PHP extension that it needs in order to perform correctly is pre-installed on our advanced cloud hosting platform. You can order the upgrade from the Hepsia Control Panel, which is available with each shared hosting package and a brand new Control Panel section where you can administer Memcached will appear. The upgrade is divided into two parts – the number of instances and the memory, so as to offer you more versatility. The first one shows the number of the Internet sites that can use Memcached, while the second one, which is available in increments of 16 megabytes, determines the total size of the content that can be cached by the system. A regularly visited Internet site with a large-size database may need more memory so as to take an even greater advantage of the Memcached caching system, so in case you want to upgrade this service, you’ll be able to do it at any time with several clicks.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you choose to host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you can take advantage of Memcached effortlessly, as the caching platform’s setup takes several mouse clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. The extension that is required is pre-installed on our servers, so you can begin using the Memcached platform the moment you add it to your semi-dedicated server account. You will be able to choose how many Internet sites can use it and how much content it will cache, in other words – there are two different upgradable features – the instances and the memory. You can get more of both, so if one of your websites becomes very popular, for example, you can always add more memory to it. Our system is extremely flexible in this regard and we do not tie a particular number of instances to a fixed amount of memory. You can take advantage of Memcached to boost the speed of any script-powered site, including those based on popular web-based applications, such as Joomla or WordPress.
Memcached in VPS Servers
You will get Memcached with each of the VPS server packages that we’re offering if you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel and you will be able to activate the platform through the Control Panel section with the same name. The setup requires several mouse clicks and you will detect the difference in the performance of your sites almost instantaneously. The amount of memory that the Memcached caching platform can employ to store info depends on the given Virtual Private Server hosting package that you have chosen, but in any case it will be at least several hundred megabytes, which is more than enough even for multiple large-sized sites. You can use the Memcached platform with Internet sites based on WordPress, Joomla or any other web-based app and lower the load on your Virtual Private Server, which will permit you to continue using the current VPS package instead of upgrading to a more powerful one, since you will simply not need it. Memcached is already being used by popular websites such as Zynga, Reddit and Wikipedia, which shows its efficiency.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers
You can make use of the full potential of Memcached with each and every dedicated server that we offer in case you select Hepsia as your Control Panel. A section in it is dedicated to the data caching system and you can begin using Memcached for any Internet site hosted on the dedicated machine with only several clicks of the mouse. You can improve the overall performance of any website, no matter what script-powered software application you rely on or how popular the site is, since the minimum amount of system memory that Memcached will be able to employ is 3 GB and this amount rises significantly with the more powerful dedicated servers. Shortly after the system is enabled, it will start caching content every time somebody browses your website, so, once enough information has been stored, you’ll see the decreased load on the dedicated server and the improved performance of your Internet site. The Memcached system is used by many websites, among them popular portals such as Wikipedia, Zynga and Reddit, which proves the effectiveness of the Memcached system.
