Memcached is a popular distributed memory caching platform, which can increase the loading speed and the overall performance of your websites greatly in case they use an API or a database. This is achieved by caching the calls to the database/API and the replies that are delivered, so if a client conducts a search for a particular product on your website, for example, the database won’t have to be accessed to return the results and the entire task will be executed much faster. This goes for all types of database-driven apps and not only for e-stores, as anytime a web page is visited, the application sends a request to its database to fetch the content that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your website load much faster, but it will also generate much less server load. If any content in the database is modified, the cached replies will also be ‘refreshed’, so the visitors won’t see any out-of-date info.
Memcached in Cloud Hosting
Memcached is offered as an optional upgrade with each and every cloud hosting package that we offer and if you’d like to use it for any script-driven site that you host on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform, you’ll be able to add it in a few easy steps via your Hepsia Control Panel. During the process, you’ll be given the option to upgrade two separate things – the instances and the system memory. The first one is related to the number of the Internet sites that can use the Memcached memory caching system at the same time, so if you need it for several sites, you can order a number of instances. The second one has to do with the maximum amount of memory that the system will be allowed to use in order to cache content, so for a lot of sites (or for one busy site), you’d better order more memory for better results. The memory is offered in increments of 16 MB and more memory can be added every time you need it. With the Memcached caching system, every script-driven website hosted on our servers will open incredibly fast.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you get one of our semi-dedicated server packages, you will find Memcached as an optional feature in the Upgrades part of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so if you wish to use it for any of the sites hosted in your semi-dedicated account, you can activate it with only a couple of mouse clicks. The distributed memory object caching platform is ideal for any script-powered web app such as Joomla, WordPress, or even a custom-built one, and based on your demands, you will be able to choose two different things – how many websites will use the Memcached caching platform, in other words – the number of instances; and how much information will be stored, in other words – the amount of memory that the platform will use. The two features are not tied to each other, so if you run a frequently visited website with a lot of data, you can get one instance and a larger amount of system memory. The Memcached caching platform will improve the overall performance of your websites shortly after you enable it and both you and your website visitors will enjoy better loading speeds.
Memcached in VPS Servers
Memcached is offered by default with each VPS server offered by us provided that you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel, so you won’t have to pay any extra money to be able to make the most of the power of this distributed memory object caching system. The more powerful VPS package you select, the more system memory Memcached will have for data storage purposes, but you will have at least several hundred megabytes at all times, which is much more than the amount of memory you’d get with a shared hosting plan. This will allow you to use the Memcached caching system for lots of websites, regardless of how busy they are, which in turn means that you can use a less powerful plan for them without overloading your Virtual Private Server. The caching system is suitable for script-driven applications such as OpenCart, Joomla, WordPress or Mambo, and you can use it even with a custom-built app. Soon after you activate the Memcached system, it will start storing info and you will distinguish the optimized performance of your websites.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers
If you get one of our Linux dedicated servers and if you choose Hepsia as your web hosting Control Panel on the order form, you’ll get the Memcached object caching platform by default and you can set it up for any site that you host on your dedicated server without installing or upgrading anything. It will begin caching information as people visit your website, so you will see the results of using it soon after that. The minimum amount of memory that will be available to the Memcached caching platform is 3 GB and normally, the more powerful the dedicated package, the more system memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will allow you to use the platform for lots of sites or for a very busy site without compromising its effectiveness. Memcached will allow you to boost the loading speed of any database-powered Internet site in no time – a Joomla portal, a WordPress blog, an OpenCart e-shop, etc., and to boost the overall performance of your server.
