Memcached is a widespread content caching platform, which can improve the loading speed and the overall performance of your Internet sites drastically in case they use a database or an API. This is accomplished by caching the calls to the database/API and the replies that are returned, so if somebody searches for a given product on your site, for instance, the database will not have to be accessed to display the results and the whole task will be completed notably faster. That goes for all kinds of database-driven applications and not only for web shops, as every time a given web page is opened, the app sends a database query to fetch the data that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your site load considerably faster, but it will also produce much less server load. If any data in the database is modified, the cached replies will also be updated, so the website visitors will not see any outdated info.
Memcached in Shared Web Hosting
Memcached is available as an optional upgrade with each shared web hosting service offered by our company and you can start using it as soon as you activate it, since the extension that it requires so as to work properly is already available on our advanced cloud web hosting platform. You can request the upgrade via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is available with each and every plan and a brand new section where you can administer Memcached will show up. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts – the instances and the amount of memory, so as to offer you more flexibility. The first one shows the number of the Internet sites which can use the Memcached caching system, while the second, which is available in increments of 16 megabytes, indicates the maximum size of the content that can be cached by the system. A frequently visited site with a very large database may require more memory to take an even bigger advantage of Memcached, so if you need to upgrade this feature, you will be able to do it at any given time with several clicks.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can get the Memcached object caching system as an upgrade with each of our semi-dedicated hosting and since it works with any script-powered web application, you can use it for every website that you host on our platform, regardless of what application you have used – Mambo, Joomla or WordPress, a custom-built one, etc. You can add the upgrade from the respective section of the Hepsia Control Panel from which you manage your semi-dedicated account, and you can choose two different features – the number of instances and the amount of memory that they will use. Basically, these things determine the number of the Internet sites that will use the Memcached system and the maximum amount of memory that the system will be able to use in order to cache your info. The two things are ordered separately for more freedom and one instance does not come with a fixed amount of memory. You can make use of Memcached with any type of site and both you and the site visitors will quickly note the difference in the performance.
Memcached in VPS Web Hosting
You’ll get Memcached with any of the virtual private server plans that we’re offering when you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to activate the platform via the section with the same name. The activation takes a couple of clicks and you will see the difference in the performance of your websites almost immediately. The amount of memory that the Memcached platform can take advantage of to store information depends on the given VPS hosting package that you have picked, but at any rate it will not be less than several hundred MB, which is quite enough even for multiple resource-requiring sites. You can use Memcached with sites driven by Joomla, WordPress or any other web-based app and reduce the load on your VPS, which will allow you to keep using the current plan rather than migrating to a more powerful one, since you simply won’t need it. The Memcached platform is already being used by popular websites like Wikipedia, Reddit and Zynga, which shows its effectiveness.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting
Memcached is available for free with all Linux dedicated hosting services that we are offering and the sole condition is that the dedicated server must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can use the distributed memory object caching system for any database-powered Internet site, including those that are based on popular Internet apps – for example, a WordPress online diary or a Joomla-powered social networking site. Each dedicated server is tied to a different amount of memory that the Memcached caching system can use, but the minimum amount you’ll get is 3 gigabytes, which is sufficient enough to boost the loading speed of extremely popular websites tremendously, as this memory will be dedicated to storing the cached info. The Memcached system will begin caching information once it’s enabled, so shortly thereafter, you will notice the improved overall performance of your websites and the lowered load on the dedicated server. Lots of sites use Memcached to boost their effectiveness, including famous ones such as Wikipedia and Reddit.
