Memcached is a widespread memory caching system, which can accelerate the speed and the performance of your websites significantly in case they use an API or a database. This is accomplished by caching the calls to the database/API and the replies that are returned, so if a user conducts a search for some product on your Internet site, for instance, the database won’t have to be accessed to display the results and the whole operation will be performed considerably quicker. That goes for all kinds of database-powered applications and not only for web shops, since every time a page is visited, the application sends a request to its database to get the content that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your website load significantly faster, but it will also create much less server load. If any data in the database is updated, the cached replies will also be updated, so the visitors will not see any outdated info.
Memcached in Shared Web Hosting
You can make use of the Memcached memory caching system with all Linux shared web hosting that we’re offering. It’s offered as an optional upgrade, which you can obtain with only a few mouse clicks from your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. It needs a PHP extension, which is already installed on our cloud website hosting platform, so you can begin using Memcached once you order it. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts, which will give you more flexibility depending on the websites that you’d like to use it for. The first part indicates the number of the sites that will use Memcached, or the ‘instances’, whereas the second one refers to the system memory, i.e. to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can add more system memory in increments of 16 MB and the more memory you’ve ordered, the more content will be cached, which may be a good idea for heavy-traffic sites with very large databases and a lot of concurrent visitors. Thus, you can optimize the overall performance of every script-based Internet site hosted on our cloud servers without any effort.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you get one of our semi-dedicated server plans, you’ll find Memcached as an optional feature in the Upgrades section of your Hepsia Control Panel, so if you’d like to use it for any of the websites hosted in your semi-dedicated server hosting account, you can add it with only a few clicks of the mouse. The distributed memory object caching platform is suitable for any script-driven software application such as Joomla, WordPress, or even a custom application, and depending on your demands, you will be able to choose two different things – how many Internet sites will use Memcached, i.e. the number of instances; and how much data will be cached, i.e. the amount of memory that the platform will employ. The two features are not tied to each other, so if you own a traffic-heavy site with lots of content, you can get one instance and a large amount of system memory. The Memcached platform will improve the overall performance of your websites shortly after you enable it and both you and your site visitors will enjoy much better load speeds.
Memcached in VPS Hosting
If you buy a virtual private server from us, you will be able to use Memcached at no additional fee, as the caching platform is available with all virtual servers ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. Even if you’ve got content-loaded sites, you can boost their performance without efforts and the lowered load on your server will allow you to keep using your current plan rather than switching to a more powerful one. The amount of memory that the Memcached caching platform can use to store info depends on the package that you are using, but even with a less powerful one, you will get at least several hundred MB, which is considerably more than what you’d get with a shared hosting package, so the website performance boost will be noticeable. You can use Memcached with any database-driven application, regardless of whether you have set it up on your own or you’re using a ready-to-use one like OpenCart, WordPress or Joomla.
Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting
Memcached comes for free with all dedicated hosting services that we offer and the sole condition is that the server must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can use the distributed memory object caching system for any database-powered website, including those that are based on widely used web applications – for instance, a WordPress weblog or a Joomla-powered social network. Each dedicated server comes with a certain amount of system memory that the Memcached system can employ, but the minimum you’ll get is 3 gigabytes, which is sufficient enough to optimize the speed of extremely large websites noticeably, since this very memory will be dedicated to storing the cached information. The system will begin storing data as soon as it’s enabled, so soon after that, you will observe the improved overall performance of your websites and the reduced load on your server. Lots of Internet sites use Memcached to boost their efficiency, including popular ones like Reddit and Wikipedia.
