Memcached is a widespread object caching platform, which can accelerate the speed and the overall performance of your Internet sites drastically in case they use an API or a database. This is accomplished by caching the requests to the database/API and the replies that are returned, so when a user searches for a given product on your site, for example, the database will not have to be accessed to display the results and the entire procedure will be completed notably faster. This is valid for all sorts of database-powered applications and not only for web stores, as anytime a given page is accessed, the app sends a database request to get the content that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your site open noticeably faster, but it will also create much less load. If any data in the database is updated, the cached responses will also be updated, so the visitors will not see any old info.
Memcached in Shared Hosting
Memcached comes as an upgrade with each shared hosting plan that we offer and in case you’d like to use it for any script-driven site that you host on our advanced cloud website hosting platform, you will be able to enable it in several easy steps through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. During the process, you’ll be offered the option to upgrade two different features – the instances and the memory. The first one is related to the number of the sites that can use the Memcached caching system simultaneously, so if you need it for several websites, you can get a handful of instances. The second one has to do with the maximum amount of memory that the system will be able to use to cache information, so for lots of sites (or for one traffic-heavy site), you should get more memory for improved performance. The memory is offered in increments of 16 MB and more memory can be added at any point. With the Memcached caching system, every script-based website hosted on our servers will load amazingly fast.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you obtain any of our semi-dedicated server packages, you’ll find Memcached as an optional feature in the Upgrades section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so if you wish to use it for any of the websites hosted in the account, you can add it with just a couple of mouse clicks. The caching platform is perfect for any script-based web app such as WordPress, Joomla, or even a custom one, and depending on your needs, you’ll be able to choose two separate things – how many websites will use Memcached, in other words – the number of instances; and how much info will be stored, in other words – the amount of memory that the platform will use. The two things are not tied to each other, so if you own a traffic-hungry site with a lot of data, you can order one instance and a larger amount of memory. The Memcached caching platform will optimize the overall performance of your sites soon after you activate it and both you and your visitors will enjoy better loading speeds.
Memcached in VPS Servers
Memcached is offered by default with each VPS server that we offer on the condition that you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel, so you will not have to pay anything extra to be able to take advantage of the full power of this object caching system. The more powerful VPS hosting package you pick, the more memory Memcached will have for information caching purposes, but you’ll have no less than several hundred MB all the time, which is much more than what you’d get with a shared plan. This will allow you to use the Memcached system for plenty of websites, no matter how heavy they are, which in turn means that you can use a low-end package for them without overloading the virtual server. The caching system is excellent for script-powered web apps like WordPress, OpenCart, Joomla or Mambo, and you can utilize it even with a custom-developed app. Soon after you enable the Memcached system, it will start caching data and you will notice the optimized overall performance of your websites.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers
Memcached comes free of charge with all Linux dedicated servers that we’re offering and the only requirement is that the dedicated machine must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can use the distributed memory object caching system for any database-driven site, including those based on popular applications – for example, a WordPress personal diary or a Joomla-driven community web portal. Each dedicated server is tied to a different amount of memory that Memcached can use, but the minimum amount you’ll get is 3 GB, which is quite enough to increase the load speed of very busy websites tremendously, since this very memory will be dedicated to storing the cached info. The system will begin caching information once it’s activated, so soon after that, you’ll distinguish the optimized performance of your websites and the reduced load on the server. Many websites use the Memcached system to enhance their efficacy, among them popular ones like Wikipedia and Reddit.
