Memcached is a famous distributed memory caching system, which can enhance the loading speed and the performance of your websites significantly in case they use a database or an API. This is achieved by caching the requests to the API/database and the responses that are delivered, so if a customer conducts a search for a given product on your website, for example, the database won’t have to be accessed to display the results and the entire operation will be carried out much faster. This goes for all types of database-driven applications and not only for online shopping portals, as every time a page is opened, the application connects to its database to get the content that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your site load noticeably faster, but it will also create much less load. If any data in the database is modified, the cached responses will also be ‘refreshed’, so the users will not see any outdated info.
Memcached in Cloud Website Hosting
You can make use of the Memcached distributed memory object caching system with all Linux cloud website hosting offered by our company. It’s offered as an upgrade, which you can get with just a couple of clicks from your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. It requires a PHP extension, which is already installed on our cloud web hosting platform, so you can start using Memcached the moment you order it. The upgrade is divided into two parts, which will offer you more flexibility depending on the Internet sites that you want to use it for. The first one determines the number of the websites that will use the Memcached caching system, or the ‘instances’, whereas the second one is related to the system memory, i.e. to how much content the system will be able to cache. You can order more system memory in increments of 16 MB and the more memory you’ve got, the more content will be cached, which may be a pretty good idea for busy websites with large-size databases and many users. In this way, you can boost the loading speed of any script-based site hosted on our cloud servers with no effort.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can get the Memcached object caching system as an upgrade with all our Linux semi-dedicated hosting and since it works with any script-powered application, you can use it for every website that you host on our servers, no matter what app you have used – WordPress, Mambo or Joomla, a custom app, etc. You can order the upgrade via the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel from which you manage your semi-dedicated server account, and you can select two separate features – the number of instances and the amount of memory that they will use. In other words, these things show how many sites will use the Memcached system and how much system memory the system will be able to use in order to cache your data. The two things are offered separately for more flexibility and one instance does not come bundled with a particular amount of memory. You can make use of the Memcached system with any type of site and both you and the site visitors will quickly notice the difference in the overall performance.
Memcached in VPS Web Hosting
Memcached is available by default with all Linux VPS web hosting ordered with our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel. The extension it requires to function properly is compiled when the server is configured, so you can begin using the object caching platform as soon as your brand-new virtual server is fully functional. The memory that the Memcached platform can use depends on the particular VPS plan, but even with the low-end plans, you’ll get several hundred megabytes that will be at your disposal exclusively for this platform. This will allow you to accelerate the performance of multiple sites hosted on the VPS simultaneously and to reduce the load even if you manage content-heavy script-powered web portals with plenty of users. The platform can be used with any script – Joomla, Mambo or Drupal, or a custom one, and you will detect the faster overall performance soon after you begin using it.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting
If you obtain any of our Linux dedicated servers hosting and if you pick Hepsia as your web hosting Control Panel at signup, you’ll get the Memcached caching platform as standard and you can set it up for each website that you host on your server without installing or upgrading anything. It will begin storing data as users access your Internet site, so you’ll detect the results of using it soon after that. The minimum amount of memory that will be available to the caching platform is 3 gigabytes and naturally, the more powerful the dedicate server plan, the more memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will allow you to use the caching platform for lots of sites or for an extremely large Internet site without weakening its efficacy. The Memcached caching platform will allow you to enhance the load speed of any database-powered site very quickly – a Joomla portal, a WordPress online blog, an OpenCart web shop, etcetera, and to boost the performance of your dedicated machine.
