Memcached is a popular caching system, which can increase the speed and the performance of your Internet sites considerably if they use an API or a database. This is achieved by caching the requests to the database/API and the replies that are returned, so if someone searches for a particular product on your Internet site, for instance, the database will not have to be accessed to show the results and the entire operation will be executed considerably faster. This goes for all sorts of database-powered applications and not only for e-shops, since every time a web page is accessed, the application sends a request to its database to fetch the data that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your website load significantly faster, but it will also produce much less load. If any data in the database is changed, the cached responses will also be updated, so the site visitors will not see any outdated information.
Memcached in Shared Web Hosting
Memcached comes as an optional upgrade with each shared web hosting plan that we offer and if you wish to use it for any script-powered site that you host on our avant-garde cloud hosting platform, you will be able to add it in a couple of easy steps via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. In the meantime, you will be offered the option to upgrade two separate features – the number of instances and the system memory. The first one has to do with the number of the Internet sites that can use the Memcached object caching system simultaneously, so if you need it for several sites, you can get a handful of instances. The second one refers to the maximum amount of memory that the system will be allowed to use in order to cache data, so for plenty of websites (or for one large site), you’d better get more memory for better results. The memory is available in increments of 16 MB and more memory can be ordered every time you need it. With the Memcached caching system, each script-driven site hosted on our cloud servers will open amazingly fast.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you get any of our semi-dedicated server plans, you’ll find Memcached as an optional feature in the Upgrades section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so if you would like to use it for any of the websites hosted in your account, you can activate it with just a few mouse clicks. The memory caching platform is perfect for any script-based web app like WordPress, Joomla, or even a custom-built one, and based on your needs, you’ll be able to select two separate features – how many sites will use the Memcached caching platform, i.e. the number of instances; and how much content will be cached, i.e. the amount of memory that the platform will use. The two things are not bound to each other, so if you manage a traffic-heavy Internet site with a lot of content, you can get one instance and a larger amount of memory. The Memcached caching platform will increase the performance of your sites shortly after you enable it and both you and your visitors will enjoy much faster loading times.
Memcached in VPS
Memcached comes by default with every virtual private server that we’re offering as long as you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel, so you won’t need to pay anything extra to be able to take advantage of the full capacity of this distributed memory object caching system. The more powerful package you select, the more system memory Memcached will have for information caching purposes, but you will have at least several hundred megabytes at all times, which is much more than the amount of memory you would get with a shared hosting plan. This will permit you to use the Memcached caching system for multiple websites, irrespective of how busy they are, which in turn goes to say that you can use a lower-end plan for them without overloading the virtual server. The caching system is excellent for script-based web applications such as OpenCart, Joomla, WordPress or Mambo, and you can utilize it even with a custom-built app. Shortly after you activate the Memcached caching system, it will begin caching information and you’ll perceive the enhanced performance of your sites.
Memcached in Dedicated Hosting
Memcached is available for free with all Linux dedicated hosting services that we’re offering and the only requirement is that the dedicated server must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can use the distributed memory caching system for any database-driven website, including those based on famous apps – for instance, a WordPress personal blog or a Joomla-driven social network. Each server is tied to a given amount of memory that the Memcached system can employ, but the minimum you will get is 3 gigabytes, which is sufficient enough to speed up very popular websites enormously, since this very memory will be dedicated to storing the cached content. The system will begin caching data once it’s enabled, so shortly thereafter, you’ll detect the optimized overall performance of your Internet sites and the lowered load on your dedicated machine. Many sites use Memcached to enhance their efficacy, including popular ones like Reddit and Wikipedia.
