Memcached is a famous data caching system, which can increase the speed and the overall performance of your Internet sites significantly if they use a database or an API. This is achieved by caching the calls to the database/API and the responses that are delivered, so when somebody searches for some product on your Internet site, for example, the database will not have to be accessed to display the results and the whole operation will be performed much faster. That goes for all kinds of database-powered applications and not only for web stores, since every time a web page is opened, the application sends a request to its database to fetch the content that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your site load much faster, but it will also produce 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 If any data in the database is modified, the cached responses will also be updated, so the visitors won’t see any out-of-date information.
Memcached in Shared Website Hosting
Memcached is available as an optional upgrade with each and every shared website hosting plan that we are offering and in case you’d like to use it for any script-powered site that you host on our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform, you will be able to enable it in several simple steps through your Hepsia Control Panel. In the meantime, you will get the option to upgrade two separate features – the number of instances and the system memory. The first one has to do with the number of the websites that can use the Memcached distributed memory object caching system at the same time, so if you need it for several Internet sites, you can order a number of instances. The second one has to do with the total amount of memory that Memcached will be able to use to cache content, so for a lot of sites (or for one single popular site), you should order more memory for improved performance. The memory is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be ordered at any moment. With Memcached, each script-powered site hosted on our servers will open unbelievably fast.
Memcached in VPS Hosting
You will get Memcached with each of the virtual private server packages offered by us if you select Hepsia as your Control Panel and you’ll be able to activate the caching platform via the section with the same name. The setup requires a couple of clicks and you will detect the difference in the performance of your websites almost momentarily. The amount of memory that Memcached can use to cache information depends on the given Virtual Private Server plan that you have selected, but at any rate it won’t be less than several hundred MB, which is quite enough even for multiple data-loaded sites. You can use Memcached with websites based on WordPress, Joomla or any other Internet app and lower the load on your VPS server, which will enable you to continue using the current VPS hosting plan rather than switching to a more powerful one, as you simply won’t need it. The Memcached platform is already being used by popular websites such as Wikipedia, Zynga and Reddit, which is a proof of its efficacy.
Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting
Memcached comes for free with all dedicated web hosting that we are offering and the sole requirement is that the dedicated server must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can use the distributed memory object caching system for any database-powered website, including those that are based on widely used software applications – for instance, a WordPress personal weblog or a Joomla-driven community website. Each server comes with a given amount of memory that the Memcached system can employ, but the minimum you will get is 3 gigabytes, which is sufficient enough to accelerate extremely busy sites enormously, as this memory will be dedicated to storing the cached information. The Memcached system will begin caching data as soon as it’s activated, so shortly thereafter, you will note the optimized overall performance of your sites and the lowered load on your dedicated machine. Lots of Internet sites use the Memcached caching system to boost their effectiveness, among them famous ones like Reddit and Wikipedia.
