Memcached is a widespread object caching system, which can improve the speed and the performance of your sites greatly in case they use an API or a database. This is achieved by caching the calls to the database/API and the replies that are delivered, so if a visitor searches for a given product on your site, for instance, the database won’t have to be accessed to show the results and the whole procedure will be performed significantly quicker. That goes for all kinds of database-powered applications and not only for e-stores, since every time a given web page is accessed, the app sends a request to its database to fetch the content that should be displayed. 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 If any data in the database is modified, the cached replies will also be updated, so the site visitors won’t see any outdated info.
Memcached in Cloud Web Hosting
The Memcached distributed memory object caching system is offered as an optional upgrade with each cloud web hosting that we offer and you will be able to begin using it the moment you enable it, as the extension that it needs in order to work properly is already present on our advanced cloud hosting platform. You can request the upgrade from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is available with each and every shared hosting plan and a brand-new Control Panel section where you can manage Memcached will appear. The upgrade is separated into two parts – the instances and the amount of system memory, so as to offer you more flexibility. The first one refers to the number of the sites that can use the Memcached caching system, whereas the second, which is offered in increments of 16 MB, specifies the total size of the content that the system can cache. A popular website with a very large database may require more memory in order to take an even bigger advantage of Memcached, so in case you need to upgrade this feature, you’ll be able to do it at any point with several clicks.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you obtain 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 server hosting account, you can activate it with just a few clicks of the mouse. The caching platform is suitable for any script-driven application such as Joomla, WordPress, or even an in-house built application, and based on your necessities, you will be able to select two separate things – how many websites will use Memcached, in other words – the number of instances; and how much info will be cached, in other words – the amount of memory that the platform will use. The two features are not bound to each other, so if you own a traffic-consuming website with lots of data, you can get one instance and a large amount of system memory. Memcached will optimize the performance of your Internet sites soon after you enable it and both you and your website visitors will enjoy faster load speeds.
Memcached in VPS Hosting
Memcached is included by default with each and every virtual private server that we’re offering if you select Hepsia as your Control Panel, so you will not need to pay any extra money to be able to use the full power of this distributed memory caching system. The more powerful plan you select, the more memory Memcached will have for content caching purposes, but you will have at least several hundred MB all the time, which is much more than the amount of memory you’d get with a shared hosting package. This will allow you to use the Memcached system for many Internet sites, regardless of how heavy they are, which in turn goes to say that you can use a less powerful plan for them without overloading the Virtual Private Server. The Memcached caching system is suitable for script-based software apps such as Joomla, WordPress, OpenCart or Mambo, and you can use it even with a custom-developed app. Shortly after you activate the Memcached caching system, it will start storing information and you will perceive the improved performance of your websites.
Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting
If you buy any of our Linux dedicated hosting services and if you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel on the order page, you will get the Memcached distributed memory caching platform by default and you can use it with each website that you host on your dedicated machine without installing or upgrading anything. It will start storing content as people visit your website, so you will notice the effects of using it soon after that. The minimum amount of memory that will be available to the Memcached caching platform is 3 GB and naturally, the more powerful the dedicated package, the more system memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will permit you to take advantage of the platform for numerous sites or for a very busy Internet site without compromising its efficiency. Memcached will allow you to optimize the speed of any database-driven site in no time – a Joomla portal, a WordPress personal weblog, an OpenCart web shop, etc., and to enhance the overall performance of your dedicated server.
