Memcached is a famous caching platform, which can enhance the loading speed and the overall performance of your sites drastically in case they use a database or an API. This is achieved by caching the calls to the database/API and the replies that are delivered, so when a user conducts a search for a particular product on your site, for instance, the database won’t have to be accessed to return the results and the whole procedure will be performed much quicker. That goes for all types of database-powered apps and not only for Internet shops, as every time a given web page is visited, the app sends a query 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 produce much less load. If any content in the database is changed, the cached responses will also be updated, so the visitors won’t see any out-of-date info.
Memcached in Website Hosting
You can use the Memcached memory caching system with all Linux website hosting packages that we’re offering. It’s offered as an upgrade, which you can enable with just a couple of mouse clicks via your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. It needs a PHP extension, which is already installed on our cloud platform, so you can start using the Memcached caching system the moment you order it. The upgrade is separated into two parts, which will offer you more versatility depending on the websites that you would like to use it for. The first one indicates the number of the websites that will use the Memcached caching system, or the ‘instances’, while the second one refers to the memory, i.e. to how much content the system will be able to cache. You can get more memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you have ordered, the more data will be cached, which may be a good idea for busy websites with large-sized databases and many simultaneous visitors. Thus, you can optimize the overall performance of every script-based website hosted on our servers without efforts.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you decide to host your sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you will be able to take advantage of Memcached effortlessly, since the content caching platform’s activation requires several mouse clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. The PHP extension that it requires is pre-installed on our semi-dedicated servers, so you can start using Memcached as soon as you add it to your semi-dedicated server account. You’ll be able to select how many websites can use it and how much data it will cache, i.e. there’re two different upgradable features – the instances and the amount of system memory. You can add more of both, so if one of your sites becomes very busy, for instance, you can always get more memory. Our system is stunningly flexible in this regard and we don’t tie a given number of instances to a pre-defined amount of system memory. You can employ the Memcached caching platform to improve the speed of any script-powered website, including those based on famous applications, such as Joomla or WordPress.
Memcached in VPS
Memcached comes by default with all Linux VPS packages ordered with our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel. The PHP extension it requires so as to perform correctly is compiled when the server is set up, so you can begin using the object caching platform as soon as your new server is completely functional. The system memory that the Memcached caching platform can employ depends on the given Virtual Private Server plan, but even with the lower-end ones, you’ll get several hundred megabytes that will be at your disposal exclusively for this platform. This will allow you to accelerate the performance of multiple websites hosted on the Virtual Private Server simultaneously and to reduce the load on the virtual machine even if you’ve got resource-intensive script-powered portals with lots of viewers. Memcached can be used with any script – Mambo, Joomla or Drupal, or a custom one, and you’ll detect the better performance soon after you start using it.
Memcached in Dedicated Hosting
If you acquire any of our Linux dedicated hosting and if you select Hepsia as your website hosting Control Panel during the order process, you will get the Memcached caching platform by default and you can activate it for any website that you host on the dedicated machine without upgrading or installing anything. It will begin storing content as people visit your website, so you will see the result of using it soon after that. The minimum amount of system memory that will be available to the caching platform is 3 gigabytes and normally, the more powerful the dedicate server package, the more system memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will permit you to take advantage of the caching platform for multiple sites or for a very busy site without compromising its effectiveness. Memcached will allow you to accelerate the speed of any database-driven site in no time – a Joomla portal, a WordPress personal weblog, an OpenCart web shop, etcetera, and to improve the overall performance of your dedicated machine.
