Memcached is a commonly used object caching platform, which can boost the speed and the overall performance of your Internet sites immensely if they use an API or a database. This is accomplished by caching the requests to the database/API and the replies that are delivered, so if a visitor searches for a specific product on your site, for instance, the database won’t have to be accessed to return the results and the entire task will be completed considerably faster. This is valid for all kinds of database-powered apps and not only for online stores, as anytime a particular web page is visited, the application sends a query to its database to fetch the data that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your website open noticeably faster, but it will also generate much less server load. If any data in the database is edited, the cached replies will also be updated, so the website visitors will not see any outdated info.
Memcached in Shared Hosting
If you host script-based websites in a shared hosting account with us, you will be able to add the Memcached distributed memory object caching system to your hosting package with just a couple of mouse clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantly and, since the needed PHP extension is pre-installed on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform, you can start using it straight away. To give you more flexibility, we offer two separate upgrades related to the number of instances (i.e. how many Internet sites will use Memcached) and to the amount of system memory that the Memcached caching system will use. The latter is offered in increments of 16 MB and you can add memory as many times as you want. Naturally, the more memory Memcached is allowed to use, the more data it will cache, so if you have a resource-intensive site with lots of data, 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 add Memcached to any of the semi-dedicated hosting service offered by us and make use of its full potential for any script-powered site hosted by us. The upgrade is accessible through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can select two features – the instances and the system memory. These things determine how many sites can use the Memcached platform and the amount of memory that it will use to store your data. You can select them independently, since one instance is not bound to a specific amount of memory, so you can use a lot of memory for one resource-heavy website, for instance. This feature comes in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order as much memory as you want. The platform can be used with any script-powered website regardless of its nature, including those that are based on popular software apps like Drupal, Joomla or WordPress, and a lot of companies such as Zynga and Wikipedia are already using it to improve the overall performance of their websites.
Memcached in VPS Servers
When you acquire a VPS server from our company, you will be able to use Memcached at no additional price, as the content caching platform is offered with all virtual servers that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. Even if you run traffic-hungry sites, you’ll be able to increase their performance without efforts and the decreased load on your virtual machine will enable you to continue using your current VPS package instead of migrating to a more powerful one. The amount of memory that Memcached can use to store content depends on the package that you’re using, but even with a less powerful one, you’ll get at least several hundred megabytes, which is significantly more than what you’d get with a shared package, so the website performance boost will be tremendous. You can use the Memcached platform with any database-powered web application, regardless of whether you’ve developed it yourself or you’re using a ready-made one like Joomla, WordPress or OpenCart.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers
You can use the full potential of Memcached with each and every dedicated server that we offer if you select Hepsia as your Control Panel. A special Control Panel section is dedicated to the memory caching system and you can start using Memcached for any Internet site hosted on the server with just a few clicks. You can optimize the performance of any website, regardless of what script-based software application you rely on or how busy the Internet site is, since the minimum amount of system memory that Memcached will be able to use is three gigabytes and this amount increases considerably with the more powerful servers. Soon after the system is enabled, it will start caching data anytime somebody accesses your site, so, once enough info has been stored, you’ll perceive the reduced load on your server and the improved overall performance of the website. The Memcached system is being used by lots of websites, including famous portals like Reddit, Wikipedia and Zynga, which is a proof of the efficiency of the Memcached caching system.
