Memcached is a commonly used memory caching platform, which can increase the loading speed and the performance of your sites tremendously if they use an API or a database. This is accomplished by caching the calls to the database/API and the replies that are returned, so if somebody conducts a search for a given product on your Internet site, for example, the database will not have to be accessed to return the results and the entire operation will be performed much quicker. That goes for all sorts of database-powered applications and not only for online shopping portals, as anytime a page is accessed, the application sends a database request to get the content that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your site load significantly faster, but it will also generate much less server load. If any content in the database is modified, the cached replies will also be updated, so the site visitors will not see any old information.
Memcached in Cloud Hosting
When you host script-driven sites in a cloud hosting account with us, you can add the Memcached content caching system to your web hosting plan with only a few clicks via your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available immediately and, since the PHP extension needed for it is pre-installed on our advanced cloud hosting platform, you can begin using it straight away. To give you more flexibility, we offer two separate upgrades related to the number of instances (in other words – how many websites will use Memcached) and to the system memory that the Memcached caching system will use. The latter comes in increments of 16 MB and you can add as much memory as you need. Naturally, the more memory the Memcached caching system is allowed to use, the more data it will cache, so if you own a resource-hungry website with lots of content, you may require more memory in order to be able to take full advantage of the power that Memcached can offer you.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you acquire one of our semi-dedicated server plans, you’ll find Memcached as an optional feature in the Upgrades part of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so if you would like to use it for any of the websites hosted in your semi-dedicated server hosting account, you can add it with just a few clicks of the mouse. The data caching platform is ideal for any script-based application like Joomla, WordPress, or even a tailor-made one, and depending on your requirements, you’ll be able to select two different features – how many websites will use Memcached, i.e. the number of instances; and how much content will be stored, in other words – the amount of memory that the platform will employ. The two features are not tied to each other, so if you own a traffic-intensive site with lots of data, you can get one instance and a larger amount of memory. The Memcached platform will enhance the performance of your websites shortly after you enable it and both you and your site visitors will enjoy much faster load speeds.
Memcached in VPS Hosting
Memcached comes by default with all Linux VPS hosting that are ordered with our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The PHP extension it needs to function properly is compiled when the VPS is set up, so you can begin using the content caching platform the moment your brand-new Virtual Private Server is completely ready. The memory that the Memcached caching platform can employ depends on the given VPS plan, but even with the lower-end ones, several hundred megabytes will be at your disposal for this platform exclusively. This will allow you to accelerate the overall performance of multiple websites hosted on the VPS at the same time and to reduce the load on the machine even if you own content-rich script-powered portals with lots of users. The platform can be used with any script – Joomla, Mambo or Drupal, or a custom-developed one, and you will notice the faster performance shortly after you begin using it.
Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting
Memcached is available for free with all Linux dedicated web hosting that we’re offering and the sole requirement is that the server must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can use the distributed memory object caching system for any database-powered site, including those based on widely used Internet applications – for instance, a WordPress online journal or a Joomla-driven social networking website. Each server comes with a specific amount of memory that the Memcached system can use, but the minimum amount you will get is 3 gigabytes, which is sufficient enough to enhance the load speed of extremely large websites substantially, as this very memory will be dedicated to storing the cached content. The system will start storing info as soon as it is enabled, so soon after that, you will detect the optimized performance of your Internet sites and the reduced load on the dedicated server. Many Internet sites use the Memcached caching system to increase their efficacy, among them popular ones like Reddit and Wikipedia.
