Memcached is a commonly used memory caching system, which can improve the speed and the performance of your sites tremendously in case they use an API or a database. This is accomplished by caching the calls to the API/database and the responses that are returned, so if somebody conducts a search for a particular product on your Internet site, for instance, the database will not have to be accessed to show the results and the entire procedure will be performed noticeably faster. This goes for all kinds of database-driven applications and not only for e-commerce portals, as anytime a particular web page is visited, the app sends a database query to get the data that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your website open significantly faster, but it will also create much less load. If any data in the database is modified, the cached replies will also be updated, so the site visitors won’t see any out-of-date information.
Memcached in Cloud Website Hosting
Memcached comes as an upgrade with each and every cloud website hosting account that we are offering and if you wish to use it for any script-powered Internet site that you host on our avant-garde cloud web hosting platform, you will be able to enable it in several easy steps through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. In the meantime, you will get the option to upgrade two separate things – the instances and the system memory. The first one has to do with the number of the sites that can use the Memcached content caching system at the same time, so if you need it for several Internet sites, you can get a number of instances. The second one has to do with the maximum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to use in order to cache data, so for lots of websites (or for one traffic-heavy site), you may want to get more memory for improved performance. The memory comes in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be ordered at any moment. With the Memcached caching system, each script-driven website hosted on our cloud servers will open blazing-fast.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can get the Memcached content caching system as an upgrade with all our semi-dedicated hosting plans and since it works with any script-powered software app, you can use it for any website that you host on our semi-dedicated servers, regardless of what app you have used – Joomla, Mambo or WordPress, a custom-created application, etc. You can request the upgrade through the respective section of the Hepsia Control Panel from which you manage your semi-dedicated account, and you can choose two different features – the instances and the amount of memory that they will use. To put it simply, these things specify the number of the websites that will use Memcached and the total amount of system memory that the system will be able to use to cache your content. The two things are ordered separately for more flexibility and one instance does not come with a fixed amount of system memory. You can take advantage of Memcached with any sort of website and both you and the visitors will swiftly distinguish the difference in the overall performance.
Memcached in VPS Servers
Memcached is available as standard with all VPS plans that are ordered with our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel. The extension it requires in order to work correctly is compiled when the VPS is configured, so you can start using the data caching platform as soon as your brand new VPS is fully operational. The memory that Memcached can employ depends on the particular plan, but even with the less powerful ones, you’ll get several hundred megabytes that will be at your disposal only for this platform. This will allow you to enhance the performance of multiple websites hosted on the virtual server simultaneously and to lower the load even if you manage resource-intensive script-driven web pages with plenty of viewers. The caching platform can be used with any script – Mambo, Joomla or Drupal, or a custom-built script, and you’ll detect the better overall performance shortly after you begin using it.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers
Any dedicated server that is ordered with our Hepsia Control Panel comes with Memcached pre-installed by default, so you can start using this distributed memory caching system the moment the server is up and running, without needing to install or upgrade anything. The amount of system memory that Memcached can employ depends on the server that you have selected, but since our servers are exceptionally powerful and given the fact that it’s likely that you will host resource-consuming sites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the caching system can use is 3 GB. This will allow you to accelerate the performance of extremely large websites with ease and you will detect the difference shortly after the Memcached caching system starts caching database requests. You can make the most of the caching system with any database-driven site, including those based on popular CMSs such as Joomla and WordPress.
