Memcached is a widespread content caching platform, which can enhance the speed and the overall performance of your Internet sites significantly if they use an API or a database. This is achieved by caching the calls to the API/database and the responses that are returned, so if a customer searches for a particular product on your site, for instance, the database won’t have to be accessed to return the results and the whole procedure will be executed considerably quicker. That goes for all sorts of database-powered apps and not only for online shopping portals, since every time a particular page is opened, the app connects to its database to get the content that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your site open much faster, but it will also produce much less load. If any data in the database is edited, the cached responses will also be ‘refreshed’, so the users won’t see any out-of-date info.
Memcached in Website Hosting
If you host script-based sites in a website hosting account with us, you’ll be able to add the Memcached memory caching system to your shared hosting package with just a few clicks of the mouse through your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available momentarily and, since the needed extension is pre-installed on our advanced cloud hosting platform, you can begin using it right away. To give you more flexibility, we offer two different upgrades related to the number of instances (i.e. how many Internet sites will use Memcached) and to the amount of memory that Memcached will use. The latter is available in increments of 16 megabytes and you can add memory whenever you want. Naturally, the more memory the Memcached caching system is permitted to use, the more data it will cache, so in case you have a large-sized site with a lot of data, you may need more memory so as to be able to take full advantage of the power that Memcached can offer you.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can add the Memcached distributed memory object caching platform to any of the Linux semi-dedicated services that we are offering and use its full potential for any script-driven Internet site hosted on our servers. The upgrade is offered through the Hepsia Control Panel and you can select two things – the number of instances and the memory. These things define how many sites can use the Memcached platform and the amount of memory that it will use to cache your information. You can select them independently, since a given instance is not bound to a particular amount of memory, so you can use a lot of memory for one popular site, for example. This upgrade comes in increments of 16 MB and you can get as much memory as you need. The Memcached platform can be used with any script-driven website regardless of its nature, including those based on popular software applications like Joomla, Drupal or WordPress, and plenty of companies like Wikipedia and Zynga are already using it to accelerate the performance of their websites.
Memcached in VPS Hosting
If you order a virtual private server from us, you’ll be able to use Memcached at no extra cost, as the caching platform is offered with all Virtual Private Servers ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. Even if you manage data-loaded sites, you can enhance their performance with no effort and the reduced load will allow you to continue using your current Virtual Private Server hosting package instead of moving to a more powerful one. The amount of system memory that Memcached can use to cache content depends on the package that you are using, but even with a low-end one, you will have no less than several hundred megabytes, which is considerably more than what you’d get with a shared plan, so the website performance boost will be incredible. You can use the Memcached platform with any database-powered app, regardless of whether you’ve created it on your own or you’re using a ready-made one like WordPress, OpenCart or Joomla.
Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting
If you purchase one of our dedicated web hosting and if you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel on the order form, you’ll get Memcached by default and you can enable it for any site that you host on your server without upgrading or installing anything. It will begin caching info as people visit your website, so you’ll notice the result of using it soon after that. The minimum amount of system memory that will be available to the Memcached caching platform is three gigabytes and naturally, the more powerful the dedicate server plan, 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 an extremely heavy website without weakening its effectiveness. Memcached will permit you to improve the loading speed of any database-powered site very quickly – a Joomla portal, a WordPress online diary, an OpenCart e-store, etc., and to optimize the performance of your server.
