Memcached is a popular data caching system, which can improve the loading speed and the performance of your websites substantially if they use an API or a database. This is achieved by caching the calls to the API/database and the replies that are returned, so if a client searches for some product on your website, for instance, the database will not have to be accessed to display the results and the entire operation will be executed considerably faster. This goes for all types of database-driven apps and not only for e-commerce portals, since anytime a given web page is accessed, the app sends a database query to fetch the content that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your site open significantly faster, but it will also generate much less server load. If any content in the database is updated, the cached responses will also be ‘refreshed’, so the users will not see any old info.
Memcached in Cloud Web Hosting
Memcached is available as an upgrade with each cloud web hosting account that we are offering and in case you wish to use it for any script-driven website that you host on our leading-edge cloud platform, you’ll be able to add it in a few easy steps through your Hepsia Control Panel. During the process, you will get the option to upgrade two separate features – the number of instances and the system memory. The first one has to do with the number of the sites that can use the Memcached memory caching system at the same time, so if you need it for several sites, you can order a number of instances. The second one has to do with the maximum amount of memory that the system will be permitted to use to cache info, so for numerous sites (or for one large site), you should get more memory for improved performance. The memory is available in increments of 16 MB and more memory can be ordered every time you need it. With the Memcached caching system, every script-based website hosted on our servers will load much faster.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can add Memcached to any of the semi-dedicated hosting offered by us and make use of its full potential for any script-powered site hosted by us. The upgrade is accessible through the Hepsia Control Panel and you can select two features – the instances and the system memory. These things specify the number of the websites that can use the Memcached caching platform and how much memory it will use to store your information. You can select them separately, since a given instance is not tied to a specific amount of system memory, so you can use lots of memory for one popular site, for example. This feature is available in increments of 16 MB and you can order as much memory as you like. The platform can be used with any script-driven site irrespective of its nature, including those based on widespread web-based applications like Drupal, WordPress or Joomla, and plenty of companies like Zynga and Wikipedia are already using it to enhance the performance of their sites.
Memcached in VPS Hosting
You will get Memcached with any of the virtual private server packages that we’re offering if you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel and you will be able to activate the memory caching platform through the section with the very same name. The setup takes several clicks and you will detect the difference in the overall performance of your sites almost instantly. The amount of memory that Memcached can employ to store information depends on the given Virtual Private Server hosting package that you’ve picked, but at any rate it won’t be less than several hundred megabytes, which is more than enough even for multiple content-loaded sites. You can use Memcached with sites powered by WordPress, Joomla or any other web application and reduce the load on your virtual machine, which will permit you to continue using the current Virtual Private Server hosting plan instead of migrating 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 comes free of charge with all dedicated servers hosting packages that we offer and the one and only requirement is that the server must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. You can use the data caching system for any database-powered site, including those based on famous web-based apps – for instance, a WordPress online diary or a Joomla-driven community website. Each server is tied to a given amount of memory that Memcached can employ, but the minimum amount you’ll get is 3 GB, which is quite enough to improve the speed of very large sites significantly, since this memory will be dedicated to storing the cached data. The system will begin caching content the moment it is activated, so soon thereafter, you’ll distinguish the enhanced overall performance of your sites and the decreased load on the dedicated machine. A lot of Internet sites use the Memcached system to increase their efficiency, among them famous ones such as Wikipedia and Reddit.
