Memcached is a commonly used memory caching platform, which can increase the speed and the performance of your websites considerably if 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 when a client conducts a search for a given product on your website, for instance, the database will not have to be accessed to return the results and the whole task will be executed significantly quicker. This goes for all kinds of database-driven apps and not only for online stores, since anytime a web page is opened, the application sends a request to its database to fetch the data that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your website open noticeably faster, but it will also generate much less load. If any content in the database is updated, the cached replies will also be ‘refreshed’, so the visitors won’t see any outdated information.
Memcached in Web Hosting
Memcached is offered as an upgrade with each web hosting package that we’re offering and if you want to use it for any script-powered Internet site that you host on our advanced cloud website hosting platform, you will be able to order it in a couple of easy steps through your Hepsia Control Panel. During the process, you’ll get the option to upgrade two separate things – the number of instances and the system memory. The first one refers to the number of the websites that can use the Memcached object caching system at the same time, so if you need it for several Internet sites, you can get a handful of instances. The second one has to do with the total amount of memory that Memcached will be allowed to use in order to cache content, so for a lot of websites (or for one busy site), you may want to get more memory for better results. The memory comes in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be added at any point. With the Memcached caching system, every script-powered Internet site hosted on our cloud servers will open lightning-fast.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can get the Memcached caching system as an optional upgrade with all our Linux semi-dedicated service and since it works with any script-powered application, you can use it for every site that you host on our platform, irrespective of what application you have used – Mambo, Joomla or WordPress, a custom one, etc. You can add the upgrade from the respective section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel from which you administer your semi-dedicated account, and you can choose two different things – the instances and the amount of system memory that they will use. In simple terms, these things indicate how many Internet sites will use Memcached and how much memory the system will be able to use in order to store your info. The two things are offered separately for more flexibility and one instance does not come with a pre-defined amount of memory. You can use Memcached with any type of website and both you and your website visitors will swiftly spot the difference in the performance.
Memcached in VPS Servers
Memcached comes as standard with all VPS servers ordered with our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel. The PHP extension it needs so as to perform properly is compiled when the virtual server is set up, so you can start using the caching platform as soon as your brand-new Virtual Private Server is fully ready. The memory that the Memcached platform can use depends on the particular Virtual Private Server plan, but even with the low-end plans, several hundred megabytes will be at your disposal only for this platform. This will permit you to optimize the overall performance of numerous sites hosted on the virtual server at the same time and to decrease the load even if you run heavy script-driven online portals with multiple visitors. The caching platform can be used with any script – Mambo, Joomla or Drupal, or a custom-built one, and you will see the better overall performance soon after you begin using it.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers
Each dedicated server ordered with our Hepsia Control Panel comes with Memcached pre-installed by default, so you can start using this distributed memory object caching system as soon as the dedicated server is set up, without having to activate or upgrade anything. The amount of system memory that Memcached can use depends on the dedicated server that you’ve chosen, but since our servers are very powerful and due to the fact that it is likely that you will host resource-demanding Internet sites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the caching system can use is three gigabytes. This will enable you to enhance the overall performance of very heavy sites with no effort and you’ll notice the difference soon after the Memcached caching system begins caching database calls. You can take advantage of the system with any database-powered portal, including those based on widely used CMSs like Joomla and WordPress.
