Memcached is a popular distributed memory object caching system, which can boost the loading speed and the performance of your websites greatly if they use a database or an API. This is achieved by caching the requests to the database/API and the replies that are delivered, so if a user searches for some product on your Internet site, for instance, the database will not have to be accessed to show the results and the entire operation will be performed notably faster. This is valid for all types of database-driven apps and not only for e-commerce portals, since anytime a given web page is opened, the app sends a database query to fetch the content that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your site open much faster, but it will also generate much less load. If any data in the database is modified, the cached replies will also be ‘refreshed’, so the site visitors will not see any old info.
Memcached in Cloud Web Hosting
Memcached comes as an optional upgrade with each and every cloud web hosting
account that we offer and in case you would like to use it for any script-based website that you host on our avant-garde cloud web hosting platform, you’ll be able to add it in several easy steps via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. During the process, you’ll be given the option to upgrade two different features – the number of instances and the memory. The first one is related to the number of the sites that can use the Memcached data caching system simultaneously, so if you need it for several sites, you can order a handful of instances. The second one refers to the maximum amount of memory that the system will be able to use to cache information, so for numerous websites (or for one traffic-hungry site), you should order more memory for improved performance. The memory is available in increments of 16 MB and more memory can be added every time you need it. With Memcached, every script-powered website hosted on our servers will load unbelievably fast.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can get Memcached as an upgrade with each of our Linux semi-dedicated packages
and since it works with any script-driven software app, you can use it for each site that you host on our semi-dedicated servers, regardless of what app you have used – Mambo, Joomla™
or WordPress, a custom-built app, etc. You can request the upgrade from the respective section of the Hepsia Control Panel from which you administer your semi-dedicated server account, and you can choose two different things – the instances and the amount of memory that they will use. In simple terms, these things determine the number of the websites that will use Memcached and the total amount of memory that the system will be able to use in order to cache your info. The two features are offered independently for more freedom and one instance does not come with a fixed amount of system memory. You can take advantage of the Memcached system with any type of website and both you and your site visitors will quickly distinguish the difference in the performance.
Memcached in VPS
You’ll get Memcached with any of the virtual private server
packages that we are offering if you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel and you will be able to activate the distributed memory object caching platform via the section with the exact same name. The configuration takes a few clicks and you will notice the difference in the performance of your websites almost momentarily. The amount of memory that Memcached can take advantage of to cache info depends on the particular Virtual Private Server plan that you’ve selected, but at any rate it will be at least several hundred megabytes, which is quite enough even for multiple popular websites. You can use Memcached with Internet sites powered by Joomla™
, WordPress or any other software app and decrease the load on your server, which will permit you to continue using the current VPS package rather than switching to a more powerful one, as you will simply not need it. Memcached is already being used by popular websites such as Reddit, Wikipedia and Zynga, which verifies its efficacy.
Memcached in Dedicated Hosting
You can take advantage of the full potential of Memcached with every dedicated server
that we’re offering in case you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. A section in it is dedicated to the object caching system and you can begin using Memcached for any site hosted on the machine with only a couple of clicks of the mouse. You can boost the performance of any website, irrespective of what script-driven software app you are using or how heavy the Internet site is, since the minimum amount of system memory that Memcached will be able to use is 3 GB and this amount increases seriously with the higher-end dedicated servers. Soon after the caching system is activated, it will start caching info anytime somebody accesses your website, so, once sufficient information has been cached, you will perceive the decreased load on your dedicated server and the enhanced overall performance of your site. The Memcached system is being used by a lot of websites, among them famous portals such as Zynga, Reddit and Wikipedia, which is an evidence of the efficiency of the caching system.
