Memcached is a famous object caching system, which can boost the loading speed and the overall performance of your sites drastically if they use an API or a database. This is achieved by caching the requests to the database/API and the responses that are returned, so if someone searches for a particular product on your Internet site, for instance, the database won’t have to be accessed to display the results and the whole operation will be performed much faster. This is valid for all kinds of database-powered apps and not only for e-commerce portals, since anytime a specific web page is opened, the app sends a database request to fetch the data that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your site load noticeably faster, but it will also generate much less load. If any content in the database is changed, the cached replies will also be updated, so the users will not see any outdated info.
Memcached in Website Hosting
The Memcached distributed memory caching system is available as an optional upgrade with each and every website hosting service offered by our company and you’ll be able to start using it as soon as you enable it, since the PHP extension that it needs so as to function correctly is already available on our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform. You can request the upgrade from the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with each shared hosting package and a new section where you can administer Memcached will show up. The upgrade is separated into two parts – the instances and the amount of memory, so as to give you more flexibility. The first one shows the number of the websites which can use Memcached, whereas the second, which comes in increments of 16 MB, specifies the maximum size of the content that the system can cache. A traffic-heavy Internet site with a large-sized database may require more memory in order to take an even bigger advantage of Memcached, so if you’d like to upgrade this service, you will be able to do it at any point with a couple of clicks of the mouse.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can add Memcached to any of the Linux semi-dedicated services that we’re offering and make use of its full potential for any script-powered website hosted on our servers. The upgrade is accessible through the Hepsia Control Panel and you can select two features – the instances and the amount of system memory. These things determine how many websites can use the Memcached caching platform and the amount of system memory that it will use to cache your content. You can select them independently, since one instance is not bound to a fixed amount of memory, so you can use a lot of memory for one resource-demanding site, for instance. This feature comes in increments of 16 megabytes and you can get as much memory as you need. The platform can be used with any script-powered site irrespective of its type, including those based on widespread web apps like WordPress, Joomla or Drupal, and lots of companies such as Wikipedia and Zynga are already using it to improve the overall performance of their sites.
Memcached in VPS Hosting
You’ll get Memcached with each of the virtual private server packages offered by our company when you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel and you will be able to activate the distributed memory object caching platform via the Control Panel section with the same name. The configuration requires several clicks of the mouse and you will see the difference in the overall performance of your sites almost momentarily. The amount of system memory that the Memcached caching platform can use to store info depends on the given Virtual Private Server hosting plan that you have picked, but at any rate it won’t be less than several hundred megabytes, which is more than enough even for multiple intense-traffic sites. You can use Memcached with Internet sites powered by WordPress, Joomla or any other app and decrease the load on your server, which will allow you to keep using the current VPS hosting plan rather than switching to a more powerful one, since you will simply not need it. The Memcached platform is already being used by popular websites like Reddit, Wikipedia and Zynga, which confirms its efficacy.
Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting
You can unleash the full potential of Memcached with each and every dedicated server offered by our company in case you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. A special Control Panel section is dedicated to the distributed memory object caching system and you can begin using Memcached for any Internet site hosted on the machine with only several mouse clicks. You can accelerate the overall performance of any Internet site, regardless of what script-based web application you rely on or how heavy the site is, as the minimum amount of system memory that Memcached will be able to use is 3 gigabytes and this amount increases immensely with the more powerful dedicated servers. Shortly after the system is activated, it will begin caching info every time someone opens your website, so, once enough content has been cached, you’ll distinguish the decreased load on the server and the improved overall performance of your website. Memcached is used by numerous websites, including famous portals like Wikipedia, Zynga and Reddit, which confirms the effectiveness of the caching system.
