Memcached is a famous caching platform, which can enhance the loading speed and the overall performance of your Internet sites tremendously if they use a database or an API. This is accomplished by caching the requests to the database/API and the replies that are returned, so if a customer conducts a search for a certain product on your website, for example, the database won’t have to be accessed to return the results and the entire operation will be performed noticeably faster. This is valid for all sorts of database-driven applications and not only for online stores, since every time a web page is accessed, the application connects to its database to fetch the content that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your site open considerably faster, but it will also generate much less server load. If any content in the database is modified, the cached replies will also be updated, so the users won’t see any old information.
Memcached in Cloud Hosting
You can take advantage of the Memcached distributed memory object caching system with all cloud hosting that we are offering. It’s offered as an upgrade, which you can add with just a couple of clicks of the mouse from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It requires an extension, which is already installed on our cloud platform, so you can begin using Memcached as soon as you add it. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts, which will give you more freedom depending on the Internet sites that you’d like to use it for. The first one shows the number of the websites that will use the Memcached caching system, or the ‘instances’, while the second one refers to the system memory, i.e. to how much content the system will be able to cache. You can order more memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you have added, the more data will be cached, which may be a good idea for frequently visited websites with large-sized databases and many visitors. Thus, you can boost the speed of every script-powered Internet site hosted on our cloud servers without efforts.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can get the Memcached caching system as an upgrade with all our semi-dedicated services and since it works with any script-driven web application, you can use it for any website that you host on our platform, irrespective of what app you have used – Joomla, WordPress or Mambo, a custom-built one, etc. You can order the upgrade via the respective section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel from which you administer your semi-dedicated server account, and you can select two different things – the instances and the amount of system memory that they will use. In other words, these things show the number of the Internet sites that will use Memcached and the total amount of memory that the system will be able to use to store your data. The two features are offered separately for more flexibility and one instance does not come bundled with a particular amount of memory. You can make use of Memcached with any sort of site and both you and your visitors will swiftly see the difference in the performance.
Memcached in VPS
When you order a virtual private server from our company, you will be able to use Memcached at no extra charge, as the platform is available with all Virtual Private Servers that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. Even if you own resource-demanding sites, you will be able to boost their overall performance without any effort and the lowered load on your server will allow you to continue using your current VPS package instead of upgrading to a more powerful one. The amount of system memory that Memcached can use to cache information depends on the plan that you are using, but even with a low-end one, you will have at least several hundred megabytes, which is significantly more than the amount of memory you’d get with a shared hosting package, so the website performance boost will be serious. You can take advantage of the Memcached platform with any database-powered application, no matter if you’ve set it up yourself or you’re using a ready-to-use one such as OpenCart, Joomla or WordPress.
Memcached in Dedicated Hosting
Each dedicated server that’s ordered with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel comes with Memcached already installed by default, so you can start using the caching system once your server is fully operational, without needing to upgrade or install anything. The amount of memory that Memcached can employ depends on the dedicated server that you have picked, but as our servers are quite powerful and considering the fact that it is likely that you will host resource-heavy sites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the system can use will be 3 gigabytes. This will enable you to boost the performance of extremely heavy websites without effort and you’ll see the difference soon after the Memcached system begins caching database requests. You can make use of the system with any database-driven web portal, including those that are based on widely used Content Management Systems such as Joomla and WordPress.
