Memcached is a famous distributed memory caching platform, which can boost the speed and the performance of your sites greatly if they use an API or a database. This is achieved by caching the calls to the database/API and the replies that are returned, so when a client conducts a search for a particular product on your Internet site, for instance, the database will not have to be accessed to show the results and the whole operation will be performed noticeably quicker. This goes for all kinds of database-powered apps and not only for shopping portals, as anytime a given web page is opened, the app connects to its database to get the data that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your site load much faster, but it will also create much less load. If any content in the database is modified, the cached responses will also be ‘refreshed’, so the site visitors won’t see any out-of-date information.
Memcached in Cloud Hosting
Memcached is offered as an upgrade with each cloud hosting account that we’re offering and in case you would like to use it for any script-powered site that you host on our innovative cloud website hosting platform, you’ll be able to order it in a few simple steps via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. During the process, you will get the option to upgrade two separate things – the number of instances and the system memory. The first one has to do with the number of the sites that can use the Memcached memory caching system simultaneously, so if you need it for several Internet sites, you can get a number of instances. The second one has to do with the maximum amount of memory that the system will be permitted to use to cache information, so for lots of websites (or for one resource-intensive site), you may want to order more memory for better results. The memory is available in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be ordered at any moment. With the Memcached caching system, any script-driven Internet site hosted on our servers will open blazing-fast.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you get one of our semi-dedicated server plans, you’ll find Memcached as an optional feature in the Upgrades part of your Hepsia Control Panel, so if you wish to use it for any of the sites hosted in your semi-dedicated server hosting account, you can add it with just a couple of clicks of the mouse. The distributed memory caching platform is perfect for any script-based software application such as WordPress, Joomla, or even an in-house made app, and based on your necessities, you’ll be able to choose two different things – how many Internet sites will use the Memcached caching platform, in other words – the number of instances; and how much info will be stored, in other words – the amount of system memory that the platform will use. The two features are not tied to each other, so if you manage a frequently visited site with a lot of content, you can get one instance and a large amount of system memory. The Memcached platform will boost the performance of your Internet sites soon after you enable it and both you and your visitors will enjoy faster load times.
Memcached in VPS Servers
You’ll get Memcached with any of the VPS server plans offered by us if you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel and you will be able to activate the data caching platform via the section with the same name. The configuration takes a couple of mouse clicks and you will detect the difference in the performance of your Internet sites almost instantly. The amount of system memory that the Memcached caching platform can use to cache info depends on the particular Virtual Private Server hosting plan that you’ve selected, but at any rate it will not be less than several hundred MB, which is quite enough even for several frequently visited websites. You can use the Memcached platform with sites driven by WordPress, Joomla or any other app and decrease the load on your server, which will permit you to continue using the current VPS plan rather than switching to a more powerful one, since you will simply not need it. Memcached is already being used by famous websites like Zynga, Reddit and Wikipedia, which is a confirmation of its efficiency.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers
Memcached is available for free with all dedicated service that we are offering and the only condition is that the dedicated server must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. You can use the content caching system for any database-powered Internet site, including those based on popular web apps – for instance, a WordPress online blog or a Joomla-powered community portal. Each dedicated machine comes with a given amount of memory that the Memcached system can use, but the minimum you will get is 3 GB, which is quite enough to accelerate the load speed of very heavy websites substantially, since this memory will be dedicated to storing the cached info. The system will begin caching information the moment it is enabled, so shortly thereafter, you’ll notice the improved overall performance of your sites and the decreased load on the dedicated server. Many websites use the Memcached system to boost their effectiveness, including popular ones like Wikipedia and Reddit.
