Memcached is a commonly used data caching system, which can increase the speed and the performance of your Internet sites considerably if they use a database or an API. This is accomplished by caching the requests to the API/database and the replies that are delivered, so when a user conducts a search for some product on your website, for example, the database won’t have to be accessed to return the results and the entire operation will be completed significantly faster. That goes for all kinds of database-powered apps and not only for online shops, since every time a page is accessed, the application sends a database request to get the content that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your website open significantly faster, but it will also create much less server load. If any data in the database is updated, the cached replies will also be updated, so the website visitors won’t see any out-of-date info.
Memcached in Cloud Web Hosting
Memcached comes as an optional upgrade with each cloud web hosting package that we are offering and in case you’d like to use it for any script-driven site that you host on our advanced cloud web hosting platform, you’ll be able to order it in a few simple steps through your Hepsia Control Panel. In the meantime, you will be offered the option to upgrade two different things – the number of instances and the memory. The first one refers to the number of the websites that can use the Memcached data caching system simultaneously, so if you need it for several Internet sites, you can order 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 numerous sites (or for one single traffic-intensive site), you should order more memory for better performance. The memory comes in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be added at any moment. With Memcached, every script-driven site hosted on our servers will load blazing-fast.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you buy one of our semi-dedicated server packages, you will find Memcached as an optional feature in the Upgrades section of the Hepsia Control Panel, so if you’d like to use it for any of the websites hosted in your semi-dedicated server hosting account, you can enable it with just a few clicks of the mouse. The data caching platform is ideal for any script-powered app such as WordPress, Joomla, or even a custom-made application, and depending on your requirements, you’ll be able to select two different features – how many Internet sites will use the Memcached caching platform, i.e. the number of instances; and how much information will be stored, i.e. the amount of system memory that the platform will employ. The two things are not bound to each other, so if you own a traffic-intensive site with a lot of data, you can order one instance and a large amount of memory. Memcached will boost the overall performance of your Internet sites soon after you activate it and both you and your visitors will enjoy better loading times.
Memcached in VPS Servers
Memcached is available as standard with all VPS servers ordered with our custom Hepsia Control Panel. The extension it needs to perform properly is compiled when the VPS is configured, so you can begin using the memory caching platform the moment your brand-new Virtual Private Server is completely operational. The memory that the Memcached platform can employ depends on the given VPS plan, but even with the lower-end plans, several hundred megabytes will be at your disposal only for this platform. This will allow you to accelerate the overall performance of multiple sites hosted on the Virtual Private Server simultaneously and to lower the load even if you manage large script-based sites with many visitors. The Memcached caching platform can be used with any script – Drupal, Mambo or Joomla, or a custom one, and you’ll detect the faster performance soon after you start using it.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers
Memcached comes free of charge with all Linux dedicated servers that we are offering and the sole requirement is that the dedicated machine must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. You can use the distributed memory object caching system for any database-powered site, including those that are based on widely used web apps – for instance, a WordPress personal weblog or a Joomla-driven community site. Each dedicated machine is tied to a certain amount of system memory that the Memcached caching system can use, but the minimum you’ll get is 3 gigabytes, which is quite enough to increase the speed of very heavy sites substantially, since this very memory will be dedicated to storing the cached content. The Memcached system will start storing info as soon as it is enabled, so shortly after that, you will see the enhanced performance of your sites and the lowered load on the dedicated machine. Numerous Internet sites use the Memcached caching system to improve their effectiveness, among them popular ones such as Wikipedia and Reddit.
