Memcached is a famous distributed memory caching system, which can boost the speed and the overall performance of your sites immensely in case they use a database or an API. This is accomplished by caching the requests to the database/API and the responses that are delivered, so if a user searches for a particular product on your Internet site, for example, the database won’t have to be accessed to display the results and the whole operation will be carried out significantly faster. This is valid for all sorts of database-powered applications and not only for web shops, as every time a particular page is opened, the application sends a database query to fetch the data that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your site open considerably faster, but it will also produce much less server load. If any data in the database is modified, the cached responses will also be ‘refreshed’, so the site visitors won’t see any outdated info.
Memcached in Shared Web Hosting
The Memcached memory caching system is offered as an optional upgrade with each and every Linux shared web hosting package that we offer and you will be able to begin using it once you activate it, as the extension that it requires so as to run properly is already available on our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform. You can request the upgrade via the Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with each and every shared web hosting package and a new section where you can manage Memcached will show up. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts – the instances and the system memory, so as to offer you more versatility. The first one shows the number of the sites which can use Memcached, while the second one, which is offered in increments of 16 MB, determines the maximum size of the content that the system can cache. A heavy-traffic site with a large-sized database may need more memory so as to take an even bigger advantage of the Memcached caching system, so if you’d like to upgrade this service, you will be able to do it at any given moment with several mouse clicks.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you choose to host your websites in a semi-dedicated server account, you can take advantage of Memcached with ease, since the data caching platform’s setup requires a couple of mouse clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The PHP extension that it requires is already installed on our semi-dedicated servers, so you can start using Memcached as soon as you add it to your account. You will be able to choose how many Internet sites can use it and how much content it will cache, i.e. there are two different features that can be upgraded – the instances and the amount of system memory. You can add more of both, so if one of your Internet sites becomes extremely popular, for instance, you can always get more memory. Our system is exceptionally flexible in this regard and we don’t tie a given number of instances to a fixed amount of system memory. You can use the Memcached caching platform to boost the speed of any script-powered website, including those based on famous web-based applications, such as Joomla or WordPress.
Memcached in VPS Web Hosting
Memcached comes by default with all Linux VPS web hosting packages ordered with our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The extension it needs in order to function correctly is compiled when the server is set up, so you can start using the caching platform the moment your brand-new virtual server is completely operational. The system memory that the Memcached caching platform can employ depends on the given Virtual Private Server plan, but even with the low-end ones, several hundred megabytes will be at your disposal exclusively for this platform. This will allow you to optimize the overall performance of multiple websites hosted on the server simultaneously and to lower the load even if you own large-scale script-based portals with many viewers. The Memcached caching platform can be used with any script – Joomla, Drupal or Mambo, or a custom-made script, and you will see the better performance shortly after you begin using it.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting
You can unleash the full potential of Memcached with each and every dedicated server that we are offering if you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel. A special Control Panel section is dedicated to the object caching system and you can start using Memcached for any site hosted on the dedicated machine with just several mouse clicks. You can optimize the performance of any Internet site, irrespective of what script-powered web application you’re using or how busy the site is, since the minimum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to use is 3 GB and this amount increases significantly with the more powerful dedicated servers. Soon after the system is activated, it will start caching content every time somebody opens your site, so, once enough information has been stored, you’ll detect the reduced load on the dedicated server and the enhanced performance of the site. The Memcached caching system is used by numerous sites, among them famous portals such as Zynga, Reddit and Wikipedia, which proves the effectiveness of the caching system.
