Memcached is a widely used caching system, which can enhance the loading speed and the performance of your websites greatly if they use a database or an API. This is accomplished by caching the requests to the API/database and the responses that are delivered, so when a client searches for a particular product on your site, for example, the database won’t have to be accessed to show the results and the whole task will be performed noticeably quicker. This is valid for all sorts of database-powered applications and not only for online stores, since anytime a given web page is visited, the application sends a database query to get the data that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your site load noticeably faster, but it will also create much less load. If any data in the database is updated, the cached responses will also be updated, so the visitors will not see any old info.
Memcached in Cloud Hosting
If you host script-driven websites in a cloud hosting account with us, you’ll be able to add the Memcached content caching system to your plan with only a couple of clicks via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantly and, since the extension required for it is pre-installed on our innovative cloud hosting platform, you can begin using it right away. To give you more flexibility, we offer two different upgrades related to the number of instances (in other words – how many sites will use Memcached) and to the 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 need. Logically, the more memory the Memcached caching system is permitted to use, the more data it will cache, so if you have a resource-demanding site with a lot of content, you may need more memory to be able to take advantage of the power that Memcached can offer you.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can add the Memcached data caching platform to any of the semi-dedicated hosting plans offered by us and make use of its full capacity for any script-powered website hosted by us. The upgrade is offered through the Hepsia Control Panel and you can choose two things – the instances and the memory. These things indicate how many websites can use Memcached and how much memory it will use to cache your content. You can choose them separately, since a given instance is not linked to a specific amount of system memory, so you can use a lot of memory for a single resource-requiring site, for instance. This upgrade is available in increments of 16 MB and you can order as much memory as you wish. The Memcached platform can be used with any script-driven site irrespective of its nature, including those that are based on widely used apps like Joomla, WordPress or Drupal, and plenty of companies such as Zynga and Wikipedia are already using it to boost the loading speed of their sites.
Memcached in VPS Servers
When you purchase a VPS server from us, you will be able to use Memcached at no additional charge, as the content caching platform is available with all Virtual Private Servers ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. Even if you own resource-heavy sites, you will be able to optimize their overall performance without effort and the reduced load on your virtual server will allow you to continue using your current VPS hosting plan rather than switching to a more powerful one. The amount of system memory that Memcached can use to cache data depends on the package that you are using, but even with a lower-end one, you will have no less than several hundred MB, which is significantly more than what you’d get with a shared web hosting plan, so the website performance boost will be noticeable. You can take advantage of the Memcached platform with any database-powered web application, regardless of whether you’ve set it up on your own or you’re using a ready-to-use one such as WordPress, OpenCart or Joomla.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers
Any dedicated server ordered with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel comes with Memcached already installed by default, so you can start using the memory caching system as soon as the server is fully operational, without needing to install or upgrade anything. The amount of memory that Memcached can employ depends on the server that you’ve selected, but since our servers are extremely powerful and given the fact that it’s likely that you will host resource-hungry websites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the system can use is three gigabytes. This will allow you to boost the performance of very busy sites without effort and you will distinguish the difference shortly after Memcached starts caching database requests. You can use the caching system with any database-powered web portal, including those based on popular Content Management Systems like WordPress and Joomla.
