Memcached is a widespread content caching system, which can improve the speed and the overall performance of your Internet sites drastically if they use a database or an API. This is accomplished by caching the calls to the database/API and the responses that are returned, so when a user searches for a given product on your site, for instance, the database will not have to be accessed to show the results and the whole procedure will be performed considerably faster. This goes for all types of database-powered applications and not only for shopping portals, as anytime a particular page is opened, the application sends a database query to get the data that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your website load noticeably faster, but it will also create much less load. If any data in the database is edited, the cached replies will also be updated, so the website visitors won’t see any old information.
Memcached in Hosting
When you host script-based websites in a hosting account with us, you’ll be able to add the Memcached caching system to your web hosting package with only a few clicks of the mouse from your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantaneously and, since the extension needed for it is already installed on our cutting-edge cloud website hosting platform, you can begin using it right away. To give you more flexibility, we offer two separate upgrades related to the number of instances (i.e. how many Internet sites will use Memcached) and to the system memory that Memcached will use. The latter is available in increments of 16 megabytes and you can add memory whenever you wish. Logically, the more memory the Memcached caching system is permitted to use, the more content it will cache, so if you run a resource-requiring site with a lot of data, you may require more memory in order to be able to make full use of the power that Memcached can give you.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can get the Memcached distributed memory caching system as an upgrade with each of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting and since it works with any script-based app, you can use it for every website that you host on our platform, regardless of what app you have used – Mambo, Joomla or WordPress, a custom-created one, etc. You can order the upgrade from the respective section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel from which you administer your semi-dedicated server account, and you can choose two different features – the number of instances and the amount of memory that they will use. In simple terms, these things determine the number of the websites that will use the Memcached system and the maximum amount of system memory that the system will be able to use to store your content. The two things are offered independently for more freedom and one instance does not come bundled with a fixed amount of memory. You can use Memcached with any type of site and both you and the website visitors will swiftly note the difference in the performance.
Memcached in VPS
When you purchase a virtual private server from us, you’ll be able to use Memcached at no extra cost, as the distributed memory object caching platform is offered with all VPS servers ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. Even if you’ve got resource-heavy sites, you can enhance their performance effortlessly and the decreased load on the VPS will enable you to keep using your current VPS plan instead of migrating to a more powerful one. The amount of memory that the Memcached platform can use to store content depends on the plan that you are using, but even with a lower-end one, you will have at least several hundred megabytes, which is significantly more than what you’d get with a shared hosting package, so the website performance boost will be substantial. You can use Memcached with any database-powered web app, irrespective of whether you’ve created it on your own or you are using a ready-to-use one like OpenCart, WordPress or Joomla.
Memcached in Dedicated Hosting
If you acquire one of our Linux dedicated hosting and if you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel at signup, you will get the Memcached data caching platform by default and you can set it up for each website that you host on your dedicated machine without installing or upgrading anything. It will start storing data as users open your website, so you’ll notice the result of using it soon after that. The minimum amount of memory that will be available to the Memcached caching platform is three gigabytes and normally, the more powerful the dedicate server plan, the more system memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will enable you to take advantage of the platform for many sites or for a very busy site without compromising its efficiency. Memcached will allow you to speed up any database-powered site very quickly – a Joomla portal, a WordPress online journal, an OpenCart store, etcetera, and to enhance the performance of your server.
