Memcached is a widespread caching platform, which can enhance the speed and the overall performance of your Internet sites immensely if they use an API or a database. This is accomplished by caching the requests to the API/database and the responses that are returned, so when a client conducts a search for a given product on your site, for example, the database will not have to be accessed to return the results and the entire operation will be executed notably quicker. That goes for all kinds of database-driven applications and not only for online shopping portals, as every time a specific page is accessed, the application sends a database request to fetch the data that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your site load much faster, but it will also create much less load. If any content in the database is edited, the cached replies will also be ‘refreshed’, so the users won’t see any outdated information.
Memcached in Cloud Hosting
The Memcached distributed memory object caching system comes as an optional upgrade with each and every cloud hosting plan offered by our company and you will be able to start using it the moment you order it, as the PHP extension that it needs so as to function properly is already installed on our advanced cloud web hosting platform. You can order the upgrade from the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with each and every hosting package and a brand new Control Panel section where you can manage Memcached will appear. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts – the number of instances and the memory, so as to give you more flexibility. The first one shows the number of the websites which can use the Memcached caching system, whereas the second one, which is available in increments of 16 megabytes, defines the total size of the content that the system can cache. A heavy-traffic website with a very large database may require more memory so as to take an even greater advantage of the Memcached caching system, so if you wish to upgrade this service, you’ll be able to do it at any moment with several clicks of the mouse.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can get the Memcached memory caching system as an optional upgrade with each of our semi-dedicated hosting plans and since it works with any script-powered software application, you can use it for every site that you host on our semi-dedicated servers, no matter what application you have used – Mambo, Joomla or WordPress, a custom-built app, etc. You can add the upgrade through the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel from which you administer your semi-dedicated server account, and you can choose two different features – the instances and the amount of memory that they will use. To put it in simple terms, these things define how many sites will use the Memcached system and the total amount of memory that the system will be able to use in order to cache your data. The two features are ordered independently for more flexibility and one instance does not come bundled with a particular amount of memory. You can take full advantage of Memcached with any sort of site and both you and your website visitors will swiftly see the difference in the overall performance.
Memcached in VPS Servers
If you obtain a VPS server from our company, you will be able to use Memcached at no extra cost, as the platform is available with all Virtual Private Servers that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Even if you run traffic-consuming Internet sites, you’ll be able to accelerate their overall performance effortlessly and the lowered server load will permit you to keep using your current Virtual Private Server package instead of upgrading to a more powerful one. The amount of memory that the Memcached caching platform can use to store info depends on the plan that you are using, but even with a less powerful one, you’ll have at least several hundred megabytes, which is significantly more than what you’d get with a shared hosting plan, so the website performance boost will be tremendous. You can take advantage of Memcached with any database-powered app, no matter if you’ve developed it yourself or you are using a ready-for-use one like Joomla, OpenCart or WordPress.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers
Any dedicated server that is 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 dedicated server is up and running, without having to activate or upgrade anything. The amount of memory that Memcached can employ depends on the very server that you’ve selected, but since our servers are incredibly powerful and due to the fact that it’s likely that you’ll host resource-hungry sites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the system can use will be 3 GB. This will enable you to increase the performance of extremely heavy websites without effort and you will distinguish the difference soon after Memcached begins caching database calls. You can take full advantage of the caching system with any database-driven web portal, including those that are based on widely used Content Management Systems such as Joomla and WordPress.
