Memcached is a popular caching system, which can improve the loading speed and the overall performance of your sites immensely in case they use a database or an API. This is accomplished by caching the requests to the database/API and the replies that are delivered, so if someone searches for a given product on your website, for instance, the database will not have to be accessed to return the results and the whole procedure will be carried out much faster. That goes for all kinds of database-driven apps and not only for e-shops, as anytime a page is visited, the app connects to its database to fetch the content that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your site open considerably faster, but it will also produce much less server load. If any content in the database is modified, the cached replies will also be updated, so the users will not see any outdated info.
Memcached in Hosting
You can take advantage of the Memcached distributed memory object caching system with all Linux hosting service offered by our company. It is offered as an optional upgrade, which you can get with only a few clicks of the mouse via your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. It requires a PHP extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud website hosting platform, so you can start using the Memcached caching system as soon as you order it. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts, which will give you more freedom depending on the Internet sites that you wish to use it for. The first part reveals the number of the sites that will use the Memcached caching system, or the ‘instances’, whereas the second one is related to the system memory, i.e. to how much content the system will be able to cache. You can add more memory in increments of 16 MB and the more memory you have, the more content will be cached, which may be a quite good idea for popular sites with large databases and lots of users. Thus, you can increase the performance of any script-powered Internet site hosted on our cloud servers without any efforts.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can add the Memcached object caching platform to any of the Linux semi-dedicated servers offered by our company and make use of its full capacity for any script-driven site hosted by us. The upgrade is available through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can select two features – the instances and the memory. These things define the number of the sites that can use the Memcached platform and how much memory it will use to cache your content. You can choose them independently, since a given instance is not bound to a specific amount of memory, so you can use plenty of memory for a single busy Internet site, for example. This upgrade 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 website regardless of its nature, including those based on widespread software applications like Joomla, Drupal or WordPress, and many companies such as Zynga and Wikipedia are already using it to improve the speed of their sites.
Memcached in VPS Servers
You’ll get Memcached with each of the VPS server packages offered by us in case you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel and you will be able to activate the distributed memory caching platform through the section with the exact same name. The activation takes a few clicks and you will see the difference in the overall performance of your Internet sites almost instantly. The amount of system memory that the Memcached caching platform can use to cache content depends on the given Virtual Private Server package that you’ve chosen, but at any rate it will not be less than several hundred MB, which is more than enough even for multiple data-loaded Internet sites. You can use Memcached with websites based on Joomla, WordPress or any other application and lower the load on your VPS server, which will permit you to continue using the current package rather than switching to a more powerful one, as you will simply not need it. Memcached is already being used by popular websites such as Reddit, Zynga and Wikipedia, which is a confirmation of its effectiveness.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers
When you order any of our Linux dedicated servers and if you select Hepsia as your website hosting Control Panel during the signup procedure, you’ll get the Memcached object caching platform by default and you can activate it for each site that you host on the dedicated server without upgrading or installing anything. It will begin storing info as users open your website, so you will detect the effect of using it shortly thereafter. The minimum amount of system memory that will be available to the caching platform is 3 gigabytes and normally, the more powerful the dedicate server plan, the more memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will enable you to use the caching platform for plenty of Internet sites or for a very popular site without compromising its efficacy. The Memcached platform will enable you to improve the speed of any database-powered Internet site very quickly – a Joomla portal, a WordPress online diary, an OpenCart web shop, etcetera, and to boost the overall performance of your server.
