Memcached is a popular data caching system, which can accelerate the speed and the overall performance of your websites immensely if they use a database or an API. This is achieved by caching the calls to the API/database and the responses that are delivered, so if somebody searches for a given product on your website, for instance, the database will not have to be accessed to display the results and the whole operation will be carried out considerably faster. That goes for all kinds of database-driven applications and not only for e-shops, as anytime a particular page is accessed, the app sends a database query to get the data that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your site open considerably faster, but it will also create 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any content in the database is modified, the cached replies will also be updated, so the site visitors will not see any outdated info.
Memcached in Web Hosting
If you host script-powered websites in a web hosting
account with us, you’ll be able to add the Memcached distributed memory caching system to your web hosting plan with only a couple of mouse clicks through your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantaneously and, since the extension needed for it is pre-installed on our cutting-edge cloud platform, you can begin using it right away. To give you more flexibility, we offer two different upgrades related to the number of instances (in other words – how many websites will use Memcached) and to the amount of memory that Memcached will use. The latter is offered in increments of 16 MB and you can order memory as many times as you like. Logically, the more memory the Memcached caching system is allowed to use, the more data it will cache, so if you run a high-traffic website with lots of content, you may need more memory to be able to take advantage of the power that Memcached can give you.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can add the Memcached object caching platform to any of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting plans
offered by us and use its full potential for any script-powered website hosted by us. The upgrade is available through the Hepsia Control Panel and you can choose two features – the number of instances and the memory. These things define the number of the websites that can use the Memcached caching platform and how much memory it will use to cache your information. You can choose them separately, since one instance is not bound to a specific amount of memory, so you can use lots of memory for a single large Internet site, for example. This upgrade is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and you can get as much memory as you want. The platform can be used with any script-powered site regardless of its type, including those that are based on widespread applications like Joomla™
, WordPress or Drupal™
, and a lot of companies like Zynga and Wikipedia are already using it to boost the speed of their sites.
Memcached in VPS Servers
If you obtain a VPS server
from our company, you’ll be able to use Memcached at no additional cost, as the platform is offered with all servers ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Even if you have frequently visited Internet sites, you can increase their performance without effort and the reduced load on your virtual machine will allow you to keep your current Virtual Private Server hosting plan instead of upgrading to a more powerful one. The amount of memory that the Memcached caching platform can use to cache data depends on the plan that you are using, but even with a low-end one, you’ll get no less than several hundred MB, which is considerably more than the amount of memory you’d get with a shared hosting package, so the website performance boost will be significant. You can take advantage of Memcached with any database-powered app, irrespective of whether you’ve created it yourself or you’re using a ready-for-use one such as Joomla™
, OpenCart or WordPress.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers
You can unlock the full potential of Memcached with each dedicated server
offered by our company if you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel. A section in it is dedicated to the distributed memory caching system and you can begin using Memcached for any website hosted on the machine with only several mouse clicks. You can enhance the performance of any website, regardless of what script-driven web app you rely on or how busy the website is, as the minimum amount of system memory that Memcached will be able to employ is 3 gigabytes and this amount increases significantly with the more powerful servers. Soon after the caching system is enabled, it will begin caching content every time someone visits your website, so, as soon as sufficient information has been stored, you will see the decreased load on the server and the improved overall performance of your site. The Memcached caching system is used by plenty of websites, among them popular portals like Zynga, Reddit and Wikipedia, which demonstrates the effectiveness of the Memcached system.
