Memcached is a widely used memory caching system, which can enhance the loading speed and the overall performance of your websites considerably if they use a database or an API. This is accomplished by caching the requests to the database/API and the responses that are returned, so when a visitor searches for a certain product on your website, for example, the database won’t have to be accessed to display the results and the entire operation will be performed considerably quicker. That goes for all kinds of database-powered apps and not only for e-shops, since anytime a given web page is accessed, 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 load. If any content in the database is updated, the cached replies will also be updated, so the site visitors will not see any old information.
Memcached in Shared Web Hosting
Memcached comes as an upgrade with each and every shared web hosting
account offered by our company and in case you wish to use it for any script-driven website that you host on our innovative cloud web hosting platform, you will be able to activate it in several easy steps through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. During the process, you’ll be offered the option to upgrade two different things – the number of instances and the system memory. The first one is related to the number of the sites that can use the Memcached distributed memory object caching system at the same time, so if you need it for several Internet sites, you can order a handful of instances. The second one has to do with the maximum amount of memory that the system will be allowed to use to cache content, so for multiple websites (or for one single busy site), you’d better get more memory for better performance. The memory is offered in increments of 16 MB and more memory can be added at any moment. With the Memcached caching system, each script-driven site hosted on our cloud servers will load lightning-fast.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can get the Memcached caching system as an optional upgrade with each of our semi-dedicated hosting services
and since it works with any script-based software application, you can use it for any site that you host on our semi-dedicated servers, no matter what application you have used – Mambo, Joomla™
or WordPress, a custom-developed application, etc. You can add the upgrade through the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel from which you administer your semi-dedicated server account, and you can choose two different features – the instances and the amount of memory that they will use. To put it simply, these things determine how many websites will use the Memcached system and the amount of memory that the system will be able to use in order to store your info. The two things are offered separately for more freedom and one instance does not come bundled with a particular amount of system memory. You can take advantage of the Memcached system with any sort of site and both you and the website visitors will quickly see the difference in the performance.
Memcached in VPS Hosting
You will get Memcached with any of the virtual private server
packages that we are offering if you select Hepsia as your Control Panel and you’ll be able to activate the memory caching platform via the section with the very same name. The activation requires a few mouse clicks and you will notice the difference in the overall performance of your websites almost instantly. The amount of memory that the Memcached platform can employ to cache info depends on the given Virtual Private Server hosting package that you’ve picked, but in any case it will be at least several hundred megabytes, which is quite enough even for multiple intense-traffic sites. You can use Memcached with Internet sites powered by Joomla™
, WordPress or any other software application and reduce the load on your Virtual Private Server, which will permit you to continue using the current Virtual Private Server plan instead of upgrading to a more powerful one, as you will simply not need it. Memcached is already being used by famous websites like Reddit, Zynga and Wikipedia, which is an evidence of its efficacy.
Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting
Memcached is available for free with all Linux dedicated web hosting
that we’re offering and the only condition is that the server must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. You can use the object caching system for any database-driven Internet site, including those that are based on widely used web applications – for instance, a WordPress online journal or a Joomla™
-powered social networking website. Each server is tied to a different amount of memory that Memcached can use, but the minimum you will get is three gigabytes, which is quite enough to increase the loading speed of extremely large websites considerably, as this memory will be dedicated to storing the cached data. The Memcached system will begin storing data as soon as it is enabled, so soon after that, you will note the optimized overall performance of your Internet sites and the decreased load on your dedicated machine. Lots of Internet sites use the Memcached system to improve their effectiveness, among them popular ones such as Reddit and Wikipedia.
