Memcached is a widely used data caching platform, which can enhance the speed and the performance of your Internet sites drastically in case they use an API or a database. This is accomplished by caching the requests to the API/database and the replies that are delivered, so when a visitor conducts a search for a given product on your Internet site, for instance, the database won’t have to be accessed to display the results and the entire task will be completed noticeably quicker. This is valid for all kinds of database-powered apps and not only for web stores, since every time a specific page is accessed, the application sends a database request to get the content that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your website load noticeably faster, but it will also generate much less load. If any data in the database is updated, the cached replies will also be updated, so the website visitors won’t see any outdated information.
Memcached in Shared Website Hosting
Memcached is available as an upgrade with each and every shared website hosting plan that we are offering and in case you would like to use it for any script-powered site that you host on our avant-garde cloud web hosting platform, you’ll be able to order it in a few easy steps through your Hepsia Control Panel. In the meantime, you’ll be offered the option to upgrade two separate things – the number of instances and the system memory. The first one has to do with the number of the sites that can use the Memcached caching system simultaneously, so if you need it for several Internet sites, you can get a handful of instances. The second one refers to the maximum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to use in order to cache content, so for lots of sites (or for one single large site), you should get more memory for better performance. The memory comes in increments of 16 MB and more memory can be ordered at any time. With the Memcached caching system, each script-powered site hosted on our servers will load extra-fast.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can add the Memcached content caching platform to any of the semi-dedicated hosting offered by us and make use of its full capacity for any script-driven site hosted on our servers. The upgrade is accessible through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can choose two things – the instances and the system memory. These things determine how many websites can use the Memcached caching platform and how much memory it will use to store your info. You can select them separately, since a given instance is not bound to a specific amount of memory, so you can use a lot of memory for a single resource-intensive website, for instance. This feature is offered in increments of 16 MB and you can get as much memory as you wish. The Memcached platform can be used with any script-driven site irrespective of its type, including those that are based on widespread Internet applications like Drupal, WordPress or Joomla, and plenty of companies such as Wikipedia and Zynga are already using it to increase the loading speed of their sites.
Memcached in VPS
You’ll get Memcached with each of the virtual private server packages offered by us when you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel and you will be able to activate the caching platform through the Control Panel section with the very same name. The activation requires a couple of clicks and you’ll see the difference in the performance of your Internet sites almost instantly. The amount of memory that the Memcached platform can take advantage of to store data depends on the given Virtual Private Server plan that you have chosen, but at any rate it will not be less than several hundred MB, which is more than enough even for several intense-traffic sites. You can use the Memcached platform with websites powered by WordPress, Joomla or any other app and decrease the load on your VPS server, which will enable you to keep using the current VPS plan instead of migrating to a more powerful one, since you simply won’t need it. Memcached is already being used by famous websites such as Reddit, Zynga and Wikipedia, which is a confirmation of its efficacy.
Memcached in Dedicated Hosting
You can unleash the full potential of Memcached with each and every dedicated server that we offer in case you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. A special section in it is dedicated to the distributed memory caching system and you can start using Memcached for any site hosted on the dedicated machine with only a few clicks. You can increase the overall performance of any website, no matter what script-powered application you’re using or how busy the website is, as the minimum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to employ is 3 GB and this amount grows substantially with the more powerful servers. Soon after the caching system is enabled, it will begin caching data each time someone visits your website, so, once sufficient info has been stored, you will distinguish the decreased load on the dedicated server and the improved overall performance of your Internet site. The Memcached system is used by a lot of sites, including popular portals like Zynga, Wikipedia and Reddit, which is an evidence of the efficiency of the caching system.
