Memcached is a widespread caching system, which can improve the speed and the overall performance of your sites substantially if they use a database or an API. This is accomplished by caching the requests to the API/database and the replies that are returned, so when someone searches for a specific product on your Internet site, for instance, the database will not have to be accessed to display the results and the whole operation will be executed much quicker. This goes for all kinds of database-powered applications and not only for online stores, as every time a particular web page is accessed, the app connects to its database to fetch the content that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your site open noticeably faster, but it will also produce much less server load. If any data in the database is changed, the cached responses will also be updated, so the users will not see any old info.
Memcached in Hosting
Memcached is available as an optional upgrade with each and every hosting plan that we’re offering and in case you would like to use it for any script-based site that you host on our advanced 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 will get the option to upgrade two different features – the number of instances and the memory. The first one is related to the number of the Internet sites that can use the Memcached object caching system simultaneously, so if you need it for several sites, you can order a handful of instances. The second one has to do with the maximum amount of memory that the system will be allowed to use to cache information, so for multiple websites (or for one single resource-requiring site), you’d better get more memory for better results. The memory comes in increments of 16 MB and more memory can be added at any time. With Memcached, any script-driven Internet site hosted on our servers will open incredibly fast.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can get the Memcached object caching system as an upgrade with all our semi-dedicated plans and since it works with any script-powered app, you can use it for every Internet site that you host on our platform, irrespective of what application you have used – Joomla, Mambo or WordPress, a custom-developed one, etc. You can order the upgrade through the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel from which you manage your semi-dedicated server account, and you can select two separate features – the instances and the amount of system memory that they will use. To put it in simple terms, these things show the number of the websites that will use Memcached and the maximum amount of system memory that the system will be able to use in order to cache your info. The two things are offered independently for more flexibility and one instance does not come bundled with a fixed amount of system memory. You can use the Memcached system with any type of website and both you and your website visitors will swiftly spot the difference in the overall performance.
Memcached in VPS Servers
Memcached is available as standard with all VPS hosting plans ordered with our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel. The extension it requires in order to work properly is compiled when the server is configured, so you can start using the content caching platform once your brand new VPS is ready. The memory that the Memcached caching platform can use depends on the given VPS plan, but even with the low-end ones, you will get several hundred megabytes that will be at your disposal exclusively for this platform. This will permit you to improve the performance of multiple websites hosted on the VPS server at the same time and to decrease the load even if you’ve got traffic-consuming script-driven online portals with numerous visitors. The platform can be used with any script – Mambo, Drupal or Joomla, or a custom one, and you will notice the better performance shortly after you start using it.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers
Any dedicated server ordered with our Hepsia Control Panel comes with Memcached already installed by default, so you can begin using the content caching system as soon as the dedicated server is assembled, without needing to activate or upgrade anything. The amount of system memory that Memcached can use depends on the very server that you’ve chosen, but since our servers are remarkably powerful and due to the fact that it is likely that you’ll host resource-heavy sites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the caching system can use is 3 GB. This will allow you to increase the overall performance of very large websites effortlessly and you will detect the difference soon after the Memcached caching system begins caching database calls. You can make use of the system with any database-powered portal, including those based on famous CMSs like WordPress and Joomla.
