Memcached is a famous object caching platform, which can boost the loading speed and the overall performance of your sites tremendously if they use a database or an API. This is accomplished by caching the requests to the database/API and the replies that are returned, so if a customer conducts a search for a certain product on your website, for instance, the database will not have to be accessed to return the results and the entire operation will be performed considerably quicker. That goes for all kinds of database-driven apps and not only for online stores, as anytime a specific web page is visited, the application sends a request to its database to get the data that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your website load considerably faster, but it will also create much less server load. If any content in the database is edited, the cached responses will also be ‘refreshed’, so the users won’t see any out-of-date information.
Memcached in Cloud Hosting
You can make use of the Memcached memory caching system with all Linux cloud packages offered by our company. It is available as an upgrade, which you can enable with only a few mouse clicks through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It requires an extension, which is already installed on our cloud platform, so you can start using Memcached as soon as you order it. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts, which will give you more flexibility depending on the sites that you want to use it for. The first part determines the number of the websites that will use Memcached, or the so-called ‘instances’, while the second one refers to the memory, i.e. to how much content the system will be able to cache. You can get more memory in increments of 16 MB and the more memory you’ve got, the more data will be cached, which may be an exceptionally good idea for heavy-traffic sites with very large databases and lots of visitors. In this way, you can improve the performance of any script-powered website hosted on our servers without effort.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you choose to host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account, you can take advantage of Memcached effortlessly, since the distributed memory caching platform’s setup takes several mouse clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. The extension that it requires is already installed on our semi-dedicated servers, so you can begin using Memcached as soon as you add it to your account. You’ll be able to choose how many sites can use it and how much content it will cache, i.e. there’re two separate features that can be upgraded – the instances and the amount of system memory. You can add more of both, so if one of your websites becomes very busy, for example, you can always get more memory. Our system is quite flexible in this regard and we don’t tie a specific number of instances to a fixed amount of memory. You can use Memcached to boost the speed of any script-powered site, including those based on popular applications, such as Joomla or WordPress.
Memcached in VPS
Memcached is offered by default with each virtual private server that we are offering on the condition that you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel, so you won’t need to pay any extra money to be able to make the most of the potential of this caching system. The more powerful Virtual Private Server hosting plan you select, the more system memory Memcached will have for data caching purposes, but you’ll have no less than several hundred megabytes at all times, which is much more than what you’d get with a shared hosting package. This will permit you to use the Memcached caching system for many Internet sites, regardless of how heavy they are, which in turn means that you can use a low-end plan for them without overloading your server. The caching system is ideal for script-driven applications such as WordPress, OpenCart, Joomla or Mambo, and you can use it even with a custom app. Shortly after you activate the Memcached system, it will begin storing information and you will perceive the enhanced overall performance of your websites.
Memcached in Dedicated Hosting
When you get one of our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages and if you select Hepsia as your web hosting Control Panel during the signup procedure, you’ll get Memcached by default and you can use it with any website that you host on the server without installing or upgrading anything. It will start caching data as people access your site, so you will see the results of using it shortly after that. The minimum amount of memory that will be available to the caching platform is 3 gigabytes and normally, the more powerful the dedicated package, the more memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will enable you to use the caching platform for many Internet sites or for a very large Internet site without weakening its efficacy. The Memcached platform will allow you to boost the speed of any database-powered site in no time – a Joomla portal, a WordPress weblog, an OpenCart e-store, etcetera, and to optimize the overall performance of your dedicated machine.
