Memcached is a commonly used data caching system, which can increase the speed and the performance of your sites tremendously if they use a database or an API. This is achieved by caching the calls to the API/database and the replies that are delivered, so when someone conducts a search for a given product on your website, for example, the database won’t have to be accessed to return the results and the whole procedure will be carried out considerably quicker. This is valid for all sorts of database-driven apps and not only for Internet shops, since every time a particular page is opened, the app connects to its database to fetch the data that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your site load considerably faster, but it will also produce much less server load. If any content in the database is edited, the cached replies will also be ‘refreshed’, so the website visitors will not see any outdated information.
Memcached in Hosting
Memcached is offered as an optional upgrade with each hosting plan offered by us and in case you wish to use it for any script-based website that you host on our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform, you’ll be able to enable it in a few simple steps through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. During the process, you’ll be offered the option to upgrade two different things – the instances and the memory. The first one is related to the number of the sites that can use the Memcached object caching system simultaneously, so if you need it for several websites, you can order a handful of instances. The second one refers to the maximum amount of memory that the system will be allowed to use to cache information, so for a lot of websites (or for one single busy site), you’d better get more memory for better results. The memory is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be ordered at any moment. With the Memcached caching system, any script-powered Internet site hosted on our cloud servers will load unbelievably fast.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can add the Memcached caching platform to any of the semi-dedicated servers offered by us and make use of its full potential for any script-powered website hosted by us. The upgrade is accessible through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can select two features – the number of instances and the system memory. These things indicate how many websites can use the Memcached caching platform and the amount of memory that it will use to store your info. You can select them independently, since a given instance is not tied to a fixed amount of memory, so you can use lots of memory for a single large-sized site, for instance. This feature comes in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order as much memory as you need. The Memcached platform can be used with any script-driven site irrespective of its nature, including those based on widespread web-based apps like WordPress, Drupal or Joomla, and plenty of companies like Zynga and Wikipedia are already using it to improve the performance of their sites.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers
When you order one of our dedicated servers and if you pick Hepsia as your web hosting Control Panel during the signup process, you will get the Memcached caching platform by default and you can enable it for each Internet site that you host on the dedicated server without upgrading or installing anything. It will begin storing information as users open your site, so you will see the result of using it shortly thereafter. The minimum amount of memory that will be available to the Memcached caching 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 enable you to use the platform for a large number of sites or for a very busy website without weakening its efficacy. The Memcached caching platform will allow you to optimize the loading speed of any database-powered Internet site in no time – a Joomla portal, a WordPress personal weblog, an OpenCart web shop, etcetera, and to optimize the performance of your dedicated machine.
