Memcached is a commonly used distributed memory caching platform, which can enhance the speed and the overall performance of your sites immensely if they use an API or a database. This is accomplished by caching the requests to the API/database and the replies that are delivered, so if someone conducts a search for a specific product on your Internet site, for instance, the database will not have to be accessed to return the results and the whole task will be executed much quicker. This goes for all sorts of database-powered applications and not only for Internet shops, since every time a particular page is accessed, the application sends a request to its database to fetch the data that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your site open considerably faster, but it will also generate much less load. If any content in the database is modified, the cached replies will also be updated, so the visitors won’t see any old information.
Memcached in Shared Hosting
The Memcached data caching system comes as an upgrade with every shared hosting that we’re offering and you’ll be able to start using it once you add it, since the extension that it requires in order to run correctly is already installed on our leading-edge cloud platform. You can order the upgrade from the Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with each and every web hosting package and a new section where you can administer Memcached will appear. The upgrade is separated into two parts – the number of instances and the system memory, so as to offer you more freedom. The first one refers to the number of the sites that can use the Memcached caching system, while the second, which is available in increments of 16 MB, determines the total size of the content that the system can cache. A busy site with a very large database may require more memory so as to take an even greater advantage of the Memcached caching system, so in case you wish to upgrade this service, you will be able to do it at any time with a few mouse clicks.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you decide to host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to take advantage of Memcached with ease, since the distributed memory caching platform’s setup requires several clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The extension that is required is pre-installed on our semi-dedicated servers, so you can start using the Memcached platform the moment you add it to your semi-dedicated server account. You will be able to choose how many websites can use it and how much data can be cached, in other words – there are two separate upgradable features – the instances and the memory. You can order more of both, so if one of your websites becomes very busy, for example, you can always get more memory. Our system is unbelievably flexible in this regard and we don’t tie a given number of instances to a fixed amount of system memory. You can take advantage of the Memcached caching platform to improve the loading speed of any script-driven website, including those that are based on famous apps, such as Joomla or WordPress.
Memcached in VPS Servers
Memcached comes as standard with all VPS servers ordered with our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel. The extension it requires in order to work correctly is compiled when the VPS server is set up, so you can begin using the memory caching platform the moment your brand new VPS is ready. The system memory that Memcached can use depends on the particular plan, but even with the less powerful ones, several hundred megabytes will be at your disposal for this platform exclusively. This will permit you to accelerate the overall performance of multiple sites hosted on the Virtual Private Server at the same time and to lower the load on the virtual machine even if you’ve got resource-demanding script-powered web portals with lots of users. The caching platform can be used with any script – Mambo, Drupal or Joomla, or a custom-developed script, and you’ll see the faster overall performance soon after you begin using it.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers
You can make use of the full potential of Memcached with each and every dedicated server offered by our company if you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. A special Control Panel section is dedicated to the caching system and you can start using Memcached for any website hosted on the machine with just several mouse clicks. You can accelerate the overall performance of any Internet site, regardless of what script-based software application you rely on or how heavy the Internet site is, since the minimum amount of system memory that Memcached will be able to employ is 3 gigabytes and this amount grows substantially with the more powerful dedicated servers. Shortly after the caching system is activated, it will start caching info anytime somebody visits your site, so, once enough data has been stored, you will detect the decreased load and the improved performance of the Internet site. The Memcached system is used by a lot of sites, including famous portals like Reddit, Zynga and Wikipedia, which is a proof of the efficiency of the Memcached caching system.
