Memcached is a commonly used content caching system, which can increase the loading speed and the overall performance of your websites substantially in case they use a database or an API. This is accomplished by caching the calls to the database/API and the responses that are returned, so if someone conducts a search for a specific product on your Internet site, for example, the database will not have to be accessed to display the results and the entire task will be executed considerably faster. This is valid for all sorts of database-driven applications and not only for online shops, since every time a particular page is visited, the application sends a database request to fetch the content that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your site open considerably faster, but it will also create much less server load. If any content in the database is updated, the cached responses will also be ‘refreshed’, so the visitors will not see any outdated info.
Memcached in Shared Web Hosting
Memcached is available as an upgrade with each and every shared web hosting
package that we are offering and in case you wish to use it for any script-driven Internet site that you host on our advanced cloud platform, you will be able to enable it in a couple of simple steps via your Hepsia Control Panel. In the meantime, you will be given the option to upgrade two different things – the number of instances and the system memory. The first one is related to the number of the Internet sites that can use the Memcached object caching system simultaneously, so if you need it for several sites, you can order a handful of instances. The second one has to do with the total amount of memory that Memcached will be able to use to cache information, so for multiple sites (or for one single resource-hungry site), you may want to order more memory for improved performance. The memory comes in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be added at any moment. With the Memcached caching system, any script-based site hosted on our cloud servers will open blazing-fast.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you acquire any of our semi-dedicated server
packages, you’ll find Memcached as an optional upgrade in the Upgrades section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so if you want to use it for any of the Internet sites hosted in your semi-dedicated account, you can add it with only a couple of clicks of the mouse. The distributed memory caching platform is ideal for any script-based app such as Joomla™
, WordPress, or even a custom-developed application, and based on your needs, you’ll be able to choose two different things – how many sites will use Memcached, i.e. the number of instances; and how much content will be stored, in other words – the amount of system memory that the platform will use. The two things are not bound to each other, so if you own a popular Internet site with lots of data, you can order one instance and a larger amount of memory. The Memcached caching platform will boost the performance of your Internet sites soon after you enable it and both you and your visitors will enjoy much faster loading speeds.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers
You can take advantage of the full potential of Memcached with each dedicated server
that we are offering if you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. A special Control Panel section is dedicated to the distributed memory caching system and you can start using Memcached for any Internet site hosted on the server with only several clicks of the mouse. You can boost the performance of any site, no matter what script-driven web application you’re using or how busy the Internet site is, since the minimum amount of system memory that Memcached will be able to use is three gigabytes and this amount increases considerably with the more powerful dedicated servers. Shortly after the system is enabled, it will start caching content each time somebody accesses your website, so, as soon as enough information has been cached, you will perceive the decreased load on the dedicated machine and the optimized performance of the Internet site. The Memcached system is used by numerous websites, including famous portals such as Reddit, Wikipedia and Zynga, which demonstrates the effectiveness of the Memcached caching system.
