Memcached is a popular distributed memory object caching platform, which can enhance the speed and the performance of your sites substantially in case they use an API or a database. This is accomplished by caching the calls to the database/API and the responses that are returned, so when somebody conducts a search for a specific product on your website, for instance, the database will not have to be accessed to show the results and the entire procedure will be completed notably quicker. This is valid for all types of database-driven applications and not only for e-commerce portals, since anytime a specific page is accessed, the app connects to its database to fetch the content that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your site open significantly faster, but it will also generate much less server load. If any data in the database is updated, the cached responses will also be updated, so the visitors will not see any outdated info.
Memcached in Shared Hosting
When you host script-based websites in a shared hosting account with us, you will be able to add the Memcached object caching system to your web hosting package with only a few clicks through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available immediately and, since the PHP extension needed for it is already installed on our avant-garde cloud hosting platform, you can begin using it straight away. To give you more versatility, we offer two separate upgrades related to the number of instances (in other words – how many websites will use Memcached) and to the system memory that the Memcached caching system will use. The latter is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and you can add memory as many times as you want. Logically, the more memory Memcached is permitted to use, the more data it will cache, so if you own a traffic-hungry site with lots of content, you may require more memory so as to be able to make the most of the power that Memcached can give you.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you choose to host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you can take advantage of Memcached with ease, as the platform’s setup takes several mouse clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. The extension that is required is already installed on our servers, so you can begin using the Memcached platform as soon as you add it to your semi-dedicated server account. You’ll be able to choose how many websites can use it and how much content it will cache, i.e. there are two separate upgradable features – the number of instances and the amount of system memory. You can order more of both, so if one of your sites becomes very popular, for instance, you can always get more memory. Our system is pretty flexible in this regard and we don’t bind a specific number of instances to a fixed amount of system memory. You can employ the Memcached platform to boost the loading speed of any script-driven Internet site, including those that are based on famous web-based applications, such as Joomla or WordPress.
Memcached in VPS Servers
Memcached is included by default with each and every VPS server that we’re offering on the condition that you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel, so you will not need to pay any extra money to be able to use the full power of this object caching system. The more powerful VPS package you select, the more memory Memcached will have for information caching purposes, but you will have no less than several hundred MB at all times, which is much more than the amount of memory you would get with a shared package. This will allow you to use the Memcached system for numerous Internet sites, regardless of how heavy they are, which in turn goes to say that you can use a lower-end package for them without overloading the VPS server. The caching system is perfect for script-powered web applications like OpenCart, WordPress, Joomla or Mambo, and you can utilize it even with a custom-created app. Shortly after you enable Memcached, it will start storing information and you will observe the optimized overall performance of your sites.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers
You can take advantage of the full potential of Memcached with each dedicated server offered by our company if you select Hepsia as your Control Panel. A special Control Panel section is dedicated to the distributed memory caching system and you can begin using Memcached for any website hosted on the dedicated machine with just several mouse clicks. You can increase the overall performance of any Internet site, no matter what script-powered software application you’re using or how large the Internet site is, as the minimum amount of system memory that Memcached will be able to employ is three gigabytes and this amount grows seriously with the higher-end servers. Soon after the caching system is activated, it will begin caching content each time somebody browses your website, so, as soon as enough information has been stored, you will see the decreased load on the dedicated machine and the enhanced overall performance of your Internet site. Memcached is used by many sites, including famous portals like Zynga, Wikipedia and Reddit, which verifies the effectiveness of the caching system.
