Memcached is a widely used caching system, which can boost the loading speed and the performance of your sites considerably if they use a database or an API. This is accomplished by caching the requests to the API/database and the replies that are returned, so if a user searches for a particular product on your site, for instance, the database won’t have to be accessed to return the results and the whole procedure will be completed significantly quicker. This is valid for all sorts of database-driven applications and not only for e-stores, as every time a particular web page is visited, the app sends a database request to fetch the content that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your site load considerably faster, but it will also create much less server load. If any content in the database is updated, the cached responses will also be updated, so the visitors won’t see any old information.
Memcached in Shared Website Hosting
Memcached comes as an optional upgrade with each shared website hosting account that we offer and if you would like to use it for any script-driven site that you host on our advanced cloud hosting platform, you’ll be able to enable it in several easy steps via your Hepsia Control Panel. During the process, you will be offered the option to upgrade two separate features – the number of instances and the memory. The first one refers to the number of the sites that can use the Memcached distributed memory object caching system simultaneously, so if you need it for several Internet sites, you can order a number of instances. The second one refers to the total amount of memory that Memcached will be permitted to use in order to cache info, so for plenty of sites (or for one single traffic-heavy site), you’d better get more memory for better performance. The memory comes in increments of 16 MB and more memory can be ordered at any point. With Memcached, every script-driven website hosted on our servers will open unbelievably fast.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you decide to host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you can take advantage of Memcached with ease, since the object caching platform’s setup requires several mouse clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. The extension that is required is pre-installed on our servers, so you can start using Memcached the moment you add it to your account. You’ll be able to select how many Internet sites can use it and how much information can be cached, i.e. there’re two separate upgradable features – the number of instances and the system memory. You can add more of both, so if one of your Internet sites becomes extremely popular, for instance, you can always get more memory. Our system is very flexible in this regard and we do not tie a specific number of instances to a pre-defined amount of memory. You can take advantage of the Memcached caching platform to increase the speed of any script-driven Internet site, including those based on popular Internet applications, such as Joomla or WordPress.
Memcached in VPS Hosting
Memcached is offered by default with every virtual private server offered by us if you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel, so you will not need to pay any extra money to be able to make the most of the full power of this caching system. The more powerful Virtual Private Server hosting plan you pick, the more memory Memcached will have for content storage purposes, but you’ll have no less than several hundred megabytes all the time, which is much more than what you would get with a shared web hosting plan. This will allow you to use the Memcached caching system for numerous Internet sites, irrespective of how heavy they are, which in turn goes to say that you can use a low-end plan for them without overloading your Virtual Private Server. The caching system is ideal for script-based software applications like Joomla, WordPress, OpenCart or Mambo, and you can utilize it even with a custom-created app. Soon after you activate the Memcached caching system, it will begin caching information and you’ll spot the optimized overall performance of your websites.
Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting
Any dedicated server that’s ordered with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel comes with Memcached pre-installed by default, so you can start using this caching system the moment the dedicated server is completely operational, without the need to activate or upgrade anything. The amount of memory that Memcached can employ depends on the server that you have picked, but since our servers are rather 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 GB. This will enable you to boost the performance of very heavy sites with ease and you will see the difference shortly after the Memcached caching system begins caching database requests. You can take full advantage of the Memcached system with any database-driven web page, including those based on widely used Content Management Systems like Joomla and WordPress.
