Memcached is a widespread content caching platform, which can enhance the loading speed and the overall performance of your sites considerably in case they use an API or a database. This is accomplished by caching the requests to the API/database and the responses that are returned, so when a client searches for a given product on your website, for instance, the database won’t have to be accessed to show the results and the whole task will be carried out significantly quicker. This goes for all types of database-driven apps and not only for Internet shops, since every time a particular page is accessed, the application sends a request to its database to get the content that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your website load significantly faster, but it will also create much less load. If any content in the database is modified, the cached responses will also be ‘refreshed’, so the users won’t see any out-of-date info.
Memcached in Shared Website Hosting
Memcached comes as an optional upgrade with each shared website hosting account that we’re offering and if you wish to use it for any script-driven website that you host on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform, you will be able to activate it in a few simple steps via your Hepsia Control Panel. During the process, you’ll be offered the option to upgrade two different things – the instances and the memory. The first one is related to the number of the websites that can use the Memcached content caching system at the same time, so if you need it for several websites, you can order a number of instances. The second one has to do with the total amount of memory that Memcached will be allowed to use to cache data, so for lots of sites (or for one resource-intensive site), you’d better get more memory for improved performance. The memory comes in increments of 16 MB and more memory can be ordered at any time. With Memcached, each script-based site hosted on our cloud servers will load much faster.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can get the Memcached data caching system as an optional upgrade with all our semi-dedicated servers and since it works with any script-based application, you can use it for any website that you host on our servers, no matter what application you have used – Joomla, Mambo or WordPress, a custom-created application, etc. You can order the upgrade via the respective section of the Hepsia Control Panel from which you manage your semi-dedicated account, and you can choose two separate things – the instances and the amount of memory that they will use. In simple terms, these things specify the number of the sites that will use the Memcached caching system and how much memory the system will be able to use in order to store your data. The two things are offered separately for more flexibility and one instance does not come with a particular amount of system memory. You can take full advantage of the Memcached system with any kind of site and both you and your visitors will swiftly distinguish the difference in the overall performance.
Memcached in VPS Servers
When you purchase a VPS server from our company, you’ll be able to use Memcached at no extra fee, as the content caching platform is offered with all virtual servers that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. Even if you run resource-intensive sites, you will be able to improve their overall performance effortlessly and the lowered load on your Virtual Private Server will allow you to keep your current plan rather than switching to a more powerful one. The amount of memory that Memcached can use to cache info depends on the package that you’re using, but even with a less powerful one, you will get at least several hundred MB, which is considerably more than what you’d get with a shared hosting package, so the website performance boost will be substantial. You can take advantage of Memcached with any database-driven web application, no matter if you’ve written it on your own or you’re using a ready-to-use one such as WordPress, OpenCart or Joomla.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers
Memcached is available for free with all Linux dedicated service that we are offering and the one and only condition is that the server must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. You can use the content caching system for any database-driven site, including those that are based on widely used Internet apps – for example, a WordPress personal weblog or a Joomla-driven community web portal. Each dedicated machine comes with a given amount of system memory that the Memcached caching system can use, but the minimum amount you’ll get is 3 gigabytes, which is sufficient enough to speed up very large websites noticeably, since this memory will be dedicated to storing the cached information. The Memcached system will start storing data the moment it’s activated, so soon after that, you’ll detect the improved performance of your websites and the lowered load on your dedicated server. Plenty of Internet sites use the Memcached caching system to boost their efficacy, among them famous ones like Wikipedia and Reddit.
