Memcached is a commonly used content caching platform, which can accelerate the loading speed and the overall performance of your Internet sites tremendously in case they use a database or an API. This is accomplished by caching the calls to the database/API and the replies that are returned, so when a client conducts a search for some product on your site, for instance, the database will not have to be accessed to return the results and the entire procedure will be executed noticeably quicker. This is valid for all sorts of database-powered apps and not only for shopping portals, since anytime a given page is visited, the application connects to its database to fetch the content that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your website load considerably faster, but it will also create much less server load. If any content in the database is edited, the cached responses will also be updated, so the site visitors will not see any out-of-date information.
Memcached in Shared Website Hosting
Memcached is offered as an upgrade with each and every shared website hosting package that we offer and if you would like to use it for any script-driven website that you host on our advanced cloud platform, you will be able to add it in a few easy steps through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. In the meantime, you’ll be offered the option to upgrade two different things – the number of instances and the system memory. The first one is related to the number of the websites that can use the Memcached distributed memory object caching system simultaneously, so if you need it for several websites, you can get a number of instances. The second one refers to the maximum amount of memory that the system will be permitted to use in order to cache data, so for multiple sites (or for one single traffic-intensive site), you may want to order more memory for better performance. The memory comes in increments of 16 MB and more memory can be ordered at any moment. With the Memcached caching system, every script-based site hosted on our cloud servers will open amazingly fast.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you decide to host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to take advantage of Memcached with ease, as the platform’s activation takes a couple of mouse clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The required PHP extension is pre-installed on our semi-dedicated servers, so you can start using Memcached the moment you add it to your semi-dedicated server account. You’ll be able to choose how many sites can use it and how much data can be cached, in other words – there are two different upgradable features – the number of instances and the amount of memory. You can order more of both, so if one of your Internet sites becomes very busy, for example, you can always order more memory. Our system is very flexible in this regard and we do not tie a particular number of instances to a pre-defined amount of system memory. You can take advantage of the Memcached platform to increase the speed of any script-driven website, including those based on popular web applications, such as WordPress or Joomla.
Memcached in VPS
When you order a virtual private server from our company, you’ll be able to use Memcached at no extra charge, as the memory caching platform is offered with all virtual servers ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. Even if you’ve got large-size Internet sites, you will be able to increase their performance without any effort and the decreased load on your VPS will allow you to keep using your current VPS hosting plan instead of upgrading to a more powerful one. The amount of system memory that Memcached can use to store information depends on the package that you’re using, but even with a lower-end one, you will have at least several hundred megabytes, which is significantly more than the amount of memory you’d get with a shared plan, so the website performance boost will be considerable. You can take advantage of Memcached with any database-powered web application, irrespective of whether you have set it up yourself or you are using a ready-for-use one such as Joomla, WordPress or OpenCart.
Memcached in Dedicated Hosting
If you purchase any of our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages and if you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel on the order page, you will get the Memcached platform by default and you can activate it for any Internet site that you host on the server without installing or upgrading anything. It will start caching content as users access your site, so you will notice the results of using it soon thereafter. The minimum amount of system memory that will be available to the platform is 3 gigabytes and naturally, the more powerful the dedicate server package, the more memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will permit you to take advantage of the platform for a lot of sites or for a very large website without weakening its effectiveness. The Memcached caching platform will allow you to enhance the speed of any database-driven site in no time – a Joomla portal, a WordPress weblog, an OpenCart e-store, etc., and to boost the performance of your dedicated machine.
