Memcached is a widespread caching platform, which can enhance the speed and the overall performance of your Internet sites greatly if they use an API or a database. This is achieved by caching the calls to the API/database and the replies that are delivered, so if a visitor searches for some product on your site, for instance, the database won’t have to be accessed to return the results and the entire procedure will be carried out considerably faster. This is valid for all kinds of database-driven apps and not only for web shops, since anytime a particular web page is opened, the app sends a request to its database to fetch the data that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your website open noticeably faster, but it will also create much less load. If any content in the database is changed, the cached responses will also be ‘refreshed’, so the users will not see any old information.
Memcached in Cloud Hosting
If you host script-powered websites in a cloud hosting account with our company, you’ll be able to add the Memcached content caching system to your hosting package with just a couple of clicks through your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available momentarily and, since the necessary PHP extension is already installed on our innovative cloud platform, you can start using it right away. To give you more versatility, we offer two separate upgrades related to the number of instances (i.e. how many websites will use Memcached) and to the amount of system memory that Memcached will use. The latter is available in increments of 16 MB and you can order memory as many times as you wish. Logically, the more memory Memcached is permitted to use, the more content it will cache, so if you own a popular website with a lot of content, you may require more memory in order to be able to take advantage of the power that Memcached can give you.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can add the Memcached caching platform to any of the semi-dedicated hosting offered by us and use its full capacity for any script-driven Internet site hosted by us. The upgrade is offered through the Hepsia Control Panel and you can choose two things – the instances and the system memory. These things determine the number of the sites that can use Memcached and the amount of memory that it will use to store your content. You can select them separately, since a given instance is not linked to a particular amount of system memory, so you can use plenty of memory for a single popular website, for example. This feature comes in increments of 16 MB and you can order as much memory as you like. The Memcached platform can be used with any script-driven site regardless of its type, including those based on popular web-based applications like Drupal, Joomla or WordPress, and a lot of companies like Wikipedia and Zynga are already using it to boost the performance of their websites.
Memcached in VPS Hosting
You’ll get Memcached with any of the virtual private server packages offered by our company in case you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel and you will be able to activate the platform via the section with the very same name. The setup requires a few clicks and you will distinguish the difference in the overall performance of your Internet sites almost immediately. The amount of memory that Memcached can employ to cache content depends on the particular Virtual Private Server package that you’ve picked, but at any rate it will be at least several hundred megabytes, which is quite enough even for multiple intense-traffic sites. You can use Memcached with Internet sites based on WordPress, Joomla or any other application and decrease the load on your virtual machine, which will allow you to continue using the current VPS hosting package rather than migrating to a more powerful one, since you simply won’t need it. Memcached is already being used by popular websites like Reddit, Zynga and Wikipedia, which is an evidence of its effectiveness.
Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting
Each dedicated server that’s ordered with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel comes with Memcached already installed by default, so you can start using this data caching system as soon as your dedicated server is set up, without needing to install or upgrade anything. The amount of memory that Memcached can use depends on the server that you’ve picked, but since our servers are very powerful and considering the fact that it is likely that you’ll host resource-requiring Internet sites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the caching system can use will be three gigabytes. This will enable you to boost the overall performance of very popular websites with ease and you will notice the difference soon after the Memcached system begins caching database requests. You can make full use of the Memcached caching system with any database-powered site, including those based on widely used CMSs like Joomla and WordPress.
