Memcached is a popular distributed memory caching platform, which can enhance the loading speed and the performance of your Internet sites greatly if they use a database or an API. This is achieved by caching the calls to the database/API and the responses that are delivered, so if a user searches for a particular product on your website, for example, the database will not have to be accessed to return the results and the entire operation will be completed much quicker. This goes for all sorts of database-powered applications and not only for online stores, since every time a given page is accessed, the app sends a database query to fetch the content that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your site load noticeably faster, but it will also generate much less load. If any content in the database is modified, the cached replies will also be ‘refreshed’, so the visitors will not see any out-of-date information.
Memcached in Shared Hosting
The Memcached distributed memory object caching system comes as an upgrade with each Linux shared package
offered by our company and you’ll be able to begin using it as soon as you activate it, since the PHP extension that it requires in order to perform properly is pre-installed on our advanced cloud hosting platform. You can request the upgrade via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with each and every hosting package and a new Control Panel section where you can manage Memcached will appear. The upgrade is divided into two parts – the number of instances and the system memory, so as to offer you more flexibility. The first one shows the number of the sites which can use Memcached, while the second, which comes in increments of 16 MB, specifies the total size of the content that the system can cache. A heavy-traffic Internet site with a very large database may need more memory to take an even greater advantage of Memcached, so in case you want to upgrade this service, you’ll be able to do it at any point with several clicks of the mouse.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you get any of our semi-dedicated server
plans, you’ll find Memcached as an optional upgrade in the Upgrades part of your Hepsia Control Panel, so if you want to use it for any of the websites hosted in your semi-dedicated server hosting account, you can enable it with just a few clicks of the mouse. The content caching platform is perfect for any script-based web application like Joomla™
, WordPress, or even a custom-developed application, and based on your necessities, you will be able to choose two separate features – how many Internet sites will use the Memcached caching platform, in other words – the number of instances; and how much information will be cached, in other words – the amount of memory that the platform will employ. The two features are not bound to each other, so if you have a high-demand site with lots of content, you can order one instance and a large amount of memory. The Memcached platform will improve the performance of your websites soon after you enable it and both you and your visitors will enjoy faster load times.
Memcached in VPS Web Hosting
Memcached is included by default with each virtual private server
that we’re offering on the condition that you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel, so you won’t need to pay any extra cash to be able to make the most of the full capacity of this object caching system. The more powerful Virtual Private Server plan you choose, the more memory Memcached will have for information caching purposes, but you will have no less than several hundred MB at all times, which is much more than the amount of memory you would get with a shared hosting plan. This will allow you to use Memcached for numerous websites, no matter how busy they are, which in turn means that you can use a less powerful package for them without overloading your VPS. The Memcached caching system is perfect for script-based applications such as WordPress, Joomla™
, OpenCart or Mambo, and you can utilize it even with a custom-created app. Shortly after you enable Memcached, it will begin storing data and you’ll observe the improved overall performance of your websites.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting
Memcached is available for free with all Linux dedicated servers hosting packages
that we are offering and the only requirement is that the dedicated machine must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can use the memory caching system for any database-powered Internet site, including those based on famous web apps – for instance, a WordPress blog or a Joomla™
-driven community web portal. Each server is tied to a certain amount of memory that the Memcached system can employ, but the minimum you will get is 3 gigabytes, which is quite enough to boost the loading speed of extremely large websites immensely, since this memory will be dedicated to storing the cached info. The Memcached system will begin storing content the moment it is activated, so soon thereafter, you’ll note the enhanced overall performance of your websites and the reduced load. Numerous Internet sites use Memcached to enhance their efficacy, among them popular ones such as Wikipedia and Reddit.
