Memcached is a commonly used object caching platform, which can accelerate the loading speed and the performance of your sites substantially in case they use an API or a database. This is achieved by caching the requests to the database/API and the replies that are delivered, so when a visitor conducts a search for a certain product on your site, for example, the database will not have to be accessed to return the results and the entire operation will be carried out significantly faster. That goes for all types of database-powered apps and not only for online shopping portals, as anytime a specific page is opened, the app sends a database query to get the content that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your website open significantly faster, but it will also produce much less server load. If any data in the database is modified, the cached replies will also be ‘refreshed’, so the users won’t see any outdated info.
Memcached in Cloud Hosting
Memcached is available as an optional upgrade with each cloud hosting plan offered by us and if you would like to use it for any script-driven site that you host on our leading-edge cloud website hosting platform, you’ll be able to enable it in several simple steps through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. In the meantime, you’ll get the option to upgrade two different things – the instances and the system memory. The first one is related to the number of the websites that can use the Memcached distributed memory object caching system at the same time, so if you need it for several websites, you can get a handful of instances. The second one refers to the maximum amount of memory that Memcached will be allowed to use in order to cache info, so for lots of websites (or for one busy site), you’d better order more memory for improved performance. The memory is offered in increments of 16 MB and more memory can be added at any moment. With the Memcached caching system, each script-driven website hosted on our cloud servers will load extremely fast.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you decide to host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to take advantage of Memcached easily, since the content caching platform’s activation requires a couple of clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The required PHP extension is already installed on our servers, so you can start using the Memcached caching platform as soon as you add it to your account. You will be able to select how many Internet sites can use it and how much info can be cached, i.e. there’re two different features that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the system memory. You can get more of both, so if one of your websites becomes extremely popular, for example, you can always get more memory. Our system is very flexible in this regard and we don’t bind a given number of instances to a pre-defined amount of system memory. You can take advantage of the Memcached caching platform to improve the speed of any script-powered Internet site, including those based on popular web applications, such as WordPress or Joomla.
Memcached in VPS Hosting
If you buy a virtual private server from us, you will be able to use Memcached at no additional fee, as the distributed memory object caching platform is offered with all VPS servers that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Even if you own resource-heavy sites, you can enhance their overall performance without effort and the lowered load on the Virtual Private Server will permit you to continue using your current VPS hosting package instead of migrating to a more powerful one. The amount of system memory that the Memcached platform can use to store info depends on the package that you’re using, but even with a less powerful one, you’ll have at least several hundred MB, which is considerably more than what you’d get with a shared package, so the website performance boost will be enormous. You can take advantage of the Memcached platform with any database-driven web app, irrespective of whether you have developed it yourself or you are using a ready-to-use one such as OpenCart, WordPress or Joomla.
Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting
When you acquire any of our Linux dedicated web hosting and if you choose Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel on the order page, you’ll get the Memcached data caching platform by default and you can use it with any Internet site that you host on the server without upgrading or installing anything. It will start storing data as people access your Internet site, so you’ll see the result of using it soon thereafter. The minimum amount of memory that will be available to the Memcached caching platform is 3 gigabytes and normally, the more powerful the dedicated package, the more system memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will allow you to use the platform for multiple sites or for a very popular website without weakening its efficiency. The Memcached caching platform will allow you to optimize the load speed of any database-powered website very quickly – a Joomla portal, a WordPress weblog, an OpenCart e-store, etc., and to boost the overall performance of your server.
