Memcached is a widespread object caching platform, which can enhance the speed and the performance of your sites immensely in case they use a database or an API. This is accomplished by caching the calls to the API/database and the replies that are delivered, so when a visitor searches for a specific product on your Internet site, for instance, the database will not have to be accessed to display the results and the whole procedure will be performed significantly faster. That goes for all sorts of database-powered apps and not only for online stores, as anytime a web page is visited, the application connects to its database to fetch the data that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your site load considerably faster, but it will also create much less server load. If any content in the database is modified, the cached replies will also be ‘refreshed’, so the visitors won’t see any old information.
Memcached in Shared Hosting
You can use the Memcached distributed memory caching system with all Linux shared hosting service offered by our company. It is offered as an optional upgrade, which you can get with just a few clicks of the mouse via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It requires an extension, which is already installed on our cloud hosting platform, so you can start using Memcached once you order it. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts, which will give you more freedom depending on the sites that you wish to use it for. The first part determines the number of the sites that will use the Memcached caching system, or the so-called ‘instances’, while the second one refers to the system memory, in other words – to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can order more memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you’ve added, the more data will be cached, which may be a good idea for popular websites with large-size databases and lots of users. In this way, you can supercharge the loading speed of any script-driven Internet site hosted on our servers without any efforts.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can add the Memcached content caching platform to any of the Linux semi-dedicated servers offered by our company and make use of its full potential for any script-powered website hosted by us. The upgrade is accessible through the Hepsia Control Panel and you can select two things – the instances and the amount of system memory. These things show how many sites can use Memcached and the amount of system memory that it will use to store your info. You can choose them independently, since a given instance is not tied to a particular amount of system memory, so you can use lots of memory for a single large-size site, for instance. This upgrade comes in increments of 16 megabytes and you can get as much memory as you need. The Memcached platform can be used with any script-driven website irrespective of its nature, including those based on widely used software applications like Joomla, WordPress or Drupal, and many companies such as Wikipedia and Zynga are already using it to increase the performance of their sites.
Memcached in VPS Servers
Memcached is available as standard with all VPS servers that are ordered with our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The extension it requires in order to function properly is compiled when the virtual server is set up, so you can begin using the distributed memory object caching platform the moment your new server is fully functional. The memory that the Memcached platform can use depends on the given Virtual Private Server plan, but even with the low-end plans, you’ll get several hundred megabytes that will be at your disposal exclusively for this platform. This will allow you to boost the overall performance of numerous websites hosted on the server simultaneously and to lower the load even if you manage large-size script-powered portals with a lot of viewers. The platform can be used with any script – Mambo, Joomla or Drupal, or a custom-developed script, and you’ll notice the faster overall performance soon after you start using it.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers
Memcached is available for free with all Linux dedicated service that we are offering and the only requirement is that the dedicated server must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can use the object caching system for any database-powered Internet site, including those that are based on popular web apps – for example, a WordPress weblog or a Joomla-driven community site. Each server comes with a certain amount of system memory that the Memcached caching system can use, but the minimum amount you’ll get is 3 gigabytes, which is quite enough to boost the loading speed of extremely busy sites considerably, since this very memory will be dedicated to storing the cached data. The Memcached system will begin caching information the moment it is activated, so shortly after that, you will notice the enhanced overall performance of your websites and the lowered server load. A lot of Internet sites use the Memcached system to enhance their efficacy, among them popular ones like Reddit and Wikipedia.
