Memcached is a popular content caching platform, which can boost the speed and the performance of your Internet sites greatly if they use an API or a database. This is accomplished by caching the calls to the API/database and the replies that are returned, so if a client conducts a search for a given product on your website, for instance, the database won’t have to be accessed to show the results and the entire operation will be completed noticeably faster. That goes for all types of database-driven apps and not only for e-stores, since every time a web page is accessed, the app sends a query to its database to get the data that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your website open significantly faster, but it will also generate much less load. If any data in the database is changed, the cached replies will also be ‘refreshed’, so the website visitors will not see any outdated information.
Memcached in Web Hosting
If you host script-driven sites in a web hosting account with us, you can add the Memcached content caching system to your shared web hosting package with only a few mouse clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantly and, since the required extension is pre-installed on our advanced cloud platform, you can begin using it straight away. To give you more flexibility, we offer two different upgrades related to the number of instances (in other words – how many Internet sites will use Memcached) and to the amount of system memory that the Memcached caching system will use. The latter comes in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order as much memory as you need. Logically, the more memory Memcached is allowed to use, the more content it will cache, so if you’ve got a large-size site with lots of data, you may need more memory to be able to make full use of the power that Memcached can offer you.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you decide to host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to take advantage of Memcached effortlessly, as the object caching platform’s setup requires a few clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The required extension is pre-installed on our semi-dedicated servers, so you can start using the Memcached caching platform the moment you add it to your account. You’ll be able to select how many Internet sites can use it and how much content can be cached, in other words – there are two different upgradable features – the number of instances and the amount of memory. You can add more of both, so if one of your Internet sites becomes very popular, for instance, you can always get more memory. Our system is unbelievably flexible in this regard and we don’t bind a given number of instances to a fixed amount of memory. You can use Memcached to boost the speed of any script-powered Internet site, including those that are based on popular web-based applications, such as Joomla or WordPress.
Memcached in VPS Servers
Memcached is included by default with each and every VPS server that we’re offering as long as you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel, so you will not need to pay any extra cash to be able to make the most of the full power of this caching system. The more powerful VPS plan you pick, the more system memory Memcached will have for content caching purposes, but you will have no less than several hundred megabytes all the time, which is much more than the amount of memory you’d get with a shared plan. This will permit you to use the Memcached caching system for multiple websites, regardless of how large they are, which in turn means that you can use a less powerful package for them without overloading your virtual machine. The Memcached caching system is ideal for script-powered applications like Joomla, OpenCart, WordPress or Mambo, and you can utilize it even with a custom-made app. Soon after you activate the Memcached system, it will start storing info and you’ll note the enhanced performance of your websites.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers
When you buy any of our dedicated web hosting plans and if you select Hepsia as your website hosting Control Panel during the signup procedure, you will get Memcached by default and you can enable it for each Internet site that you host on your dedicated machine without upgrading or installing anything. It will begin caching content as users visit your Internet site, so you will see the effect of using it shortly thereafter. The minimum amount of system memory that will be available to the caching platform is three gigabytes and normally, the more powerful the plan, the more memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will allow you to take advantage of the caching platform for a lot of websites or for an extremely popular website without compromising its efficacy. The Memcached caching platform will enable you to accelerate the load speed of any database-powered website very quickly – a Joomla portal, a WordPress personal journal, an OpenCart e-shop, etcetera, and to improve the performance of your dedicated machine.
