Memcached is a commonly used distributed memory caching system, which can boost the speed and the overall performance of your sites tremendously in case they use a database or an API. This is achieved by caching the requests to the database/API and the replies that are returned, so if a user searches for some product on your Internet site, for example, the database won’t have to be accessed to display the results and the entire operation will be performed noticeably faster. That goes for all kinds of database-powered apps and not only for shopping portals, as every time a given page is accessed, the application sends a query to its database to fetch the content that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your website load noticeably faster, but it will also create much less server load. If any data in the database is modified, the cached responses will also be updated, so the visitors won’t see any outdated information.
Memcached in Website Hosting
Memcached is available as an upgrade with each and every website hosting
account offered by our company and if you wish to use it for any script-driven Internet site that you host on our avant-garde cloud website hosting platform, you will be able to order it in a few simple steps via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. In the meantime, you’ll be given the option to upgrade two different features – the instances and the memory. The first one is related to the number of the websites that can use the Memcached caching system at the same time, so if you need it for several sites, you can get a handful of instances. The second one has to do with the total amount of memory that the system will be permitted to use in order to cache info, so for numerous sites (or for one popular site), you’d better order more memory for better results. The memory comes in increments of 16 MB and more memory can be ordered at any time. With Memcached, any script-driven site hosted on our servers will open much faster.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you order one of our semi-dedicated server
packages, you will find Memcached as an optional feature in the Upgrades section of your Hepsia Control Panel, so if you want to use it for any of the websites hosted in the account, you can enable it with only a few mouse clicks. The object caching platform is ideal for any script-driven software app like Joomla™
, WordPress, or even a custom-made one, and depending on your requirements, you will be able to choose two different things – how many Internet sites will use Memcached, in other words – the number of instances; and how much data will be cached, in other words – the amount of memory that the platform will employ. The two things are not bound to each other, so if you have a frequently visited website with lots of content, you can get one instance and a large amount of system memory. The Memcached caching platform will improve the overall performance of your Internet sites shortly after you enable it and both you and your website visitors will enjoy much better loading times.
Memcached in VPS Hosting
Memcached is available by default with all Linux VPS hosting
ordered with our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The extension it needs in order to function correctly is compiled when the virtual server is configured, so you can begin using the data caching platform as soon as your brand new Virtual Private Server is up and running. The system memory that the Memcached caching platform can employ depends on the given VPS plan, but even with the less powerful ones, several hundred megabytes will be at your disposal exclusively for this platform. This will permit you to enhance the overall performance of multiple websites hosted on the VPS server simultaneously and to reduce the load on the machine even if you have traffic-heavy script-driven web pages with many viewers. The Memcached platform can be used with any script – Drupal™
, Mambo or Joomla™
, or a custom-developed one, and you will observe the better performance shortly after you begin using it.
Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting
You can use the full potential of Memcached with each and every dedicated server
that we are offering if you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel. A special section in it is dedicated to the content caching system and you can start using Memcached for any site hosted on the dedicated server with just a few clicks. You can improve the overall performance of any website, irrespective of what script-driven web application you’re using or how large the site is, as the minimum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to employ is 3 gigabytes and this amount grows significantly with the more powerful dedicated servers. Shortly after the caching system is enabled, it will start caching data anytime someone accesses your website, so, once enough info has been cached, you’ll perceive the reduced load on the dedicated machine and the enhanced overall performance of your website. The Memcached caching system is being used by plenty of websites, among them popular portals such as Wikipedia, Zynga and Reddit, which is a proof of the effectiveness of the Memcached caching system.
