Memcached is a commonly used data caching platform, which can increase the loading speed and the overall performance of your websites immensely if they use a database or an API. This is accomplished by caching the requests to the API/database and the replies that are returned, so if somebody searches 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 task will be carried out considerably quicker. That goes for all types of database-driven apps and not only for e-shops, as every time a page is accessed, the app connects to its database to get the content that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your website open noticeably faster, but it will also create much less server load. If any data in the database is modified, the cached responses will also be updated, so the visitors won’t see any old information.
Memcached in Cloud Website Hosting
If you host script-based sites in a cloud website hosting account with us, you will be able to add the Memcached distributed memory object caching system to your web hosting plan with just a couple of clicks through your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantly and, since the necessary PHP extension is pre-installed on our cutting-edge cloud website hosting platform, you can begin using it straight away. To give you more versatility, we offer two different upgrades related to the number of instances (i.e. how many sites will use Memcached) and to the system memory that the Memcached caching system will use. The latter comes in increments of 16 megabytes and you can add as much memory as you wish. Naturally, the more memory the Memcached caching system is allowed to use, the more data it will cache, so in case you have a traffic-consuming site with lots of content, you may need more memory so as to be able to take advantage of the power that Memcached can offer you.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can get the Memcached distributed memory caching system as an upgrade with all our semi-dedicated servers and since it works with any script-driven app, you can use it for every site that you host on our platform, regardless of what application you have used – Joomla, WordPress or Mambo, a custom-built one, etc. You can order the upgrade from the respective section of the Hepsia Control Panel from which you manage your semi-dedicated account, and you can select two separate things – the number of instances and the amount of memory that they will use. To put it simply, these things determine the number of the Internet sites that will use the Memcached caching system and the total amount of system memory that the system will be able to use in order to cache your info. The two things are ordered separately for more flexibility and one instance does not come with a particular amount of system memory. You can make full use of Memcached with any type of website and both you and your site visitors will swiftly detect the difference in the performance.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers
Memcached comes for free with all dedicated servers offered by us and the only requirement is that the dedicated server must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. You can use the content caching system for any database-powered website, including those based on popular software applications – for instance, a WordPress weblog or a Joomla-powered community portal. Each server is tied to a specific amount of memory that the Memcached caching system can employ, but the minimum amount you’ll get is 3 gigabytes, which is quite enough to speed up extremely large websites seriously, since this very memory will be dedicated to storing the cached info. The Memcached system will start storing content the moment it’s activated, so shortly after that, you’ll detect the enhanced overall performance of your websites and the decreased load on your dedicated server. Lots of sites use the Memcached system to improve their efficacy, including popular ones such as Wikipedia and Reddit.
