Memcached is a commonly used distributed memory caching system, which can increase the loading speed and the overall performance of your Internet sites significantly if they use an API or a database. This is accomplished by caching the calls to the API/database and the replies that are returned, so if a visitor conducts a search for a particular product on your site, for example, the database won’t have to be accessed to show the results and the entire procedure will be carried out significantly faster. This goes for all types of database-driven apps and not only for online shopping portals, since anytime a specific web page is accessed, the application sends a request to its database to fetch the content that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your site load considerably faster, but it will also create much less load. If any data in the database is modified, the cached responses will also be ‘refreshed’, so the website visitors will not see any outdated information.
Memcached in Website Hosting
Memcached is available as an optional upgrade with each website hosting
package that we’re offering and in case you want to use it for any script-based Internet site that you host on our advanced cloud platform, you’ll be able to activate it in a few simple steps through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. In the meantime, you will get the option to upgrade two different features – the number of instances and the system memory. The first one refers to the number of the sites that can use Memcached simultaneously, so if you need it for several Internet sites, you can get a number of instances. The second one has to do with the maximum amount of memory that the system will be able to use in order to cache info, so for numerous websites (or for one single resource-intensive site), you’d better order more memory for improved performance. The memory is available in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be added at any moment. With Memcached, each script-powered website hosted on our servers will load much faster.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can add the Memcached data caching platform to any of the semi-dedicated servers
that we offer and use its full potential for any script-driven website hosted on our servers. The upgrade is offered through the Hepsia Control Panel and you can select two features – the number of instances and the system memory. These things indicate how many websites can use Memcached and the amount of memory that it will use to cache your data. You can select them separately, since a given instance is not tied to a particular amount of system memory, so you can use a lot of memory for a single resource-demanding Internet site, for instance. This feature is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and you can get as much memory as you need. The platform can be used with any script-driven website regardless of its type, including those that are based on popular web applications like Joomla™
, WordPress or Drupal™
, and many companies such as Wikipedia and Zynga are already using it to increase the overall performance of their websites.
Memcached in VPS Servers
You’ll get Memcached with any of the VPS server
packages offered by us if you select Hepsia as your Control Panel and you’ll be able to activate the distributed memory caching platform through the section with the very same name. The configuration takes a few mouse clicks and you will detect the difference in the overall performance of your sites almost instantaneously. The amount of memory that the Memcached caching platform can use to cache data depends on the particular VPS package that you’ve chosen, but in any case it will not be less than several hundred megabytes, which is more than enough even for multiple popular sites. You can use the Memcached platform with sites driven by Joomla™
, WordPress or any other application and decrease the load on your VPS server, which will permit you to keep using the current package rather than switching to a more powerful one, as you will simply not need it. Memcached is already being used by popular websites such as Reddit, Wikipedia and Zynga, which is a confirmation of its efficiency.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers
You can unleash the full potential of Memcached with every dedicated server
that we offer in case you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. A special Control Panel section is dedicated to the distributed memory caching system and you can start using Memcached for any site hosted on the server with just a couple of clicks of the mouse. You can boost the performance of any site, regardless of what script-driven web app you are using or how popular the website is, as the minimum amount of system memory that Memcached will be able to employ is 3 GB and this amount rises significantly with the more powerful servers. Soon after the caching system is activated, it will start caching info every time somebody visits your website, so, once sufficient info has been cached, you will perceive the reduced load on the server and the enhanced performance of your Internet site. Memcached is being used by a lot of websites, among them famous portals such as Reddit, Zynga and Wikipedia, which shows the effectiveness of the Memcached system.
