Memcached is a widely used distributed memory caching system, which can increase the 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 when a customer searches for a specific product on your website, for instance, the database won’t have to be accessed to display the results and the whole operation will be completed significantly quicker. This is valid for all kinds of database-powered apps and not only for online shops, since every time a page is accessed, the application connects to its database to get the content that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your website load considerably faster, but it will also produce much less load. If any content in the database is changed, the cached replies will also be ‘refreshed’, so the website visitors won’t see any old information.
Memcached in Cloud Web Hosting
You can make use of the Memcached distributed memory caching system with all cloud web hosting
that we are offering. It’s available as an upgrade, which you can get with only a couple of mouse clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It requires an extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud hosting platform, so you can start using the Memcached caching system once you order it. The upgrade is divided into two parts, which will give you more freedom depending on the sites that you want to use it for. The first one defines the number of the sites that will use the Memcached caching system, or the ‘instances’, whereas the second one refers to the memory, in other words – to how much content the system will be able to cache. You can order more memory in increments of 16 MB and the more memory you’ve ordered, the more content will be cached, which may be an exceptionally good idea for frequently visited websites with large-size databases and a lot of concurrent visitors. Thus, you can supercharge the loading speed of any script-based website hosted on our servers with ease.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can get the Memcached object caching system as an optional upgrade with each of our semi-dedicated services
and since it works with any script-driven software app, you can use it for every Internet site that you host on our servers, regardless of what application you have used – Mambo, Joomla™
or WordPress, a custom-developed one, etc. You can add the upgrade through the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel from which you manage your semi-dedicated server account, and you can select two different features – the number of instances and the amount of system memory that they will use. In other words, these things determine the number of the Internet sites that will use the Memcached caching system and the amount of system memory that the system will be able to use in order to store your information. The two features are ordered separately for more freedom and one instance does not come with a particular amount of system memory. You can make the most of the Memcached system with any sort of site and both you and your website visitors will swiftly spot the difference in the performance.
Memcached in VPS Hosting
You will get Memcached with any of the virtual private server
plans that we are offering in case you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel and you will be able to activate the content caching platform via the section with the exact same name. The setup requires a couple of clicks and you’ll distinguish the difference in the overall performance of your Internet sites almost instantly. The amount of system memory that the Memcached caching platform can take advantage of to cache info depends on the given Virtual Private Server hosting plan that you have chosen, but at any rate it won’t be less than several hundred megabytes, which is more than enough even for multiple busy sites. You can use the Memcached platform with websites driven by WordPress, Joomla™
or any other software app and reduce the load on your VPS, which will allow you to keep using the current plan rather than moving to a more powerful one, as you simply won’t need it. The Memcached platform is already being used by popular websites such as Reddit, Zynga and Wikipedia, which confirms its efficacy.
Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting
Memcached comes free of charge with all dedicated hosting services
that we offer and the only requirement is that the dedicated server must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. You can use the distributed memory caching system for any database-powered site, including those based on widely used Internet apps – for instance, a WordPress online journal or a Joomla™
-driven community website. Each server comes with a particular amount of system memory that the Memcached system can use, but the minimum amount you will get is 3 gigabytes, which is sufficient enough to boost the speed of extremely busy sites tremendously, as this memory will be dedicated to storing the cached content. The system will begin caching data once it’s activated, so soon after that, you’ll see the enhanced performance of your sites and the decreased server load. Plenty of sites use the Memcached caching system to boost their effectiveness, among them famous ones like Reddit and Wikipedia.
