Memcached is a widely used content caching system, which can improve the speed and the performance of your sites immensely in case they use an API or a database. This is achieved by caching the requests to the API/database and the replies that are delivered, so when somebody conducts a search for a certain product on your Internet site, for instance, the database will not have to be accessed to display the results and the entire procedure will be completed noticeably faster. This is valid for all sorts of database-powered applications and not only for web stores, since every time a particular web page is opened, the app connects to its database to get the content that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your site load much faster, but it will also generate much less load. If any content in the database is changed, the cached responses will also be ‘refreshed’, so the site visitors won’t see any out-of-date info.
Memcached in Shared Hosting
Memcached is available as an optional upgrade with each shared hosting package that we’re offering and if you’d like to use it for any script-powered Internet site that you host on our innovative cloud website hosting platform, you will be able to order it in a couple of simple steps through your Hepsia Control Panel. In the meantime, you will be offered the option to upgrade two different things – the number of instances and the memory. The first one is related to the number of the Internet sites that can use the Memcached memory caching system simultaneously, so if you need it for several Internet sites, you can get a handful of instances. The second one has to do with the maximum amount of memory that the system will be able to use in order to cache information, so for numerous websites (or for one resource-absorbing site), you may want to order more memory for improved performance. The memory comes in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be added at any moment. With Memcached, each script-powered site hosted on our servers will load incredibly fast.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can get the Memcached distributed memory caching system as an upgrade with all our Linux semi-dedicated service and since it works with any script-powered web application, you can use it for any website that you host on our semi-dedicated servers, irrespective of what application you have used – WordPress, Mambo or Joomla, a custom-developed one, etc. You can add the upgrade from the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel from which you manage your semi-dedicated account, and you can choose two different things – the instances and the amount of memory that they will use. To put it in simple terms, these things specify how many websites will use Memcached and the maximum amount of memory that the system will be able to use in order to store your data. The two features are ordered independently for more flexibility and one instance does not come bundled with a pre-defined amount of system memory. You can take advantage of the Memcached system with any sort of site and both you and your visitors will quickly note the difference in the overall performance.
Memcached in VPS Servers
You’ll get Memcached with any of the VPS server plans offered by us when you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel and you’ll be able to activate the memory caching platform through the section with the exact same name. The configuration takes a few clicks of the mouse and you will detect the difference in the overall performance of your sites almost instantly. The amount of system memory that the Memcached caching platform can employ to store data depends on the given VPS package that you have selected, but at any rate it will not be less than several hundred MB, which is more than enough even for multiple resource-heavy sites. You can use Memcached with Internet sites driven by Joomla, WordPress or any other app and decrease the load on your virtual server, which will allow you to keep using the current VPS package instead of migrating to a more powerful one, as you will simply not need it. The Memcached platform is already being used by popular websites such as Reddit, Wikipedia and Zynga, which is a proof of its effectiveness.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers
Memcached comes for free with all dedicated servers that we offer and the sole condition is that the server must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. You can use the distributed memory caching system for any database-driven website, including those that are based on famous apps – for example, a WordPress online diary or a Joomla-powered community site. Each server is tied to a given amount of memory that Memcached can use, but the minimum amount you will get is three gigabytes, which is sufficient enough to enhance the load speed of very large sites considerably, since this memory will be dedicated to storing the cached information. The Memcached system will start storing data the moment it’s enabled, so soon thereafter, you will see the enhanced performance of your sites and the reduced load on the server. Numerous sites use the Memcached caching system to improve their efficacy, including popular ones such as Reddit and Wikipedia.
