Memcached is a popular caching system, which can boost the loading speed and the overall performance of your Internet sites significantly 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 if somebody searches for some product on your site, for example, the database will not have to be accessed to display the results and the whole procedure will be executed much faster. That goes for all types of database-driven apps and not only for web stores, since anytime a particular page is visited, the application connects to its database to get the content that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your website open noticeably faster, but it will also create much less load. If any data in the database is modified, the cached replies will also be updated, so the website visitors won’t see any old information.
Memcached in Cloud Web Hosting
You can use the Memcached data caching system with all cloud web hosting that we are offering. It’s offered as an upgrade, which you can obtain with only a few clicks through your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. It needs an extension, which is already installed on our cloud hosting platform, so you can begin using Memcached the moment you order it. The upgrade is divided into two parts, which will offer you more versatility depending on the Internet sites that you would like to use it for. The first part indicates the number of the sites that will use the Memcached caching system, or the so-called ‘instances’, whereas the second one refers to the system memory, in other words – to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can add more memory in increments of 16 MB and the more memory you’ve got, the more content will be cached, which may be a quite good idea for traffic-heavy websites with large-size databases and lots of concurrent visitors. In this way, you can enhance the loading speed of any script-based site hosted on our cloud servers without any efforts.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you decide to host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you’ll be able to take advantage of Memcached easily, as the distributed memory object caching platform’s activation takes a few mouse clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. The required extension is pre-installed on our servers, so you can start using Memcached the moment you add it to your account. You’ll be able to choose how many websites can use it and how much info it will cache, i.e. there’re two different features that can be upgraded – the instances and the system memory. You can order more of both, so if one of your Internet sites becomes very busy, for example, you can always order more memory. Our system is truly flexible in this regard and we don’t bind a specific number of instances to a pre-defined amount of memory. You can use Memcached to accelerate any script-powered site, including those that are based on popular web-based apps, such as WordPress or Joomla.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers
Each dedicated server that’s ordered with our Hepsia Control Panel comes with Memcached pre-installed by default, so you can start using the data caching system as soon as your server is completely operational, without having to upgrade or activate anything. The amount of memory that Memcached can use depends on the server that you have picked, but since our servers are incredibly powerful and considering the fact that it’s likely that you’ll host resource-demanding Internet sites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the system can use will be 3 gigabytes. This will permit you to improve the overall performance of very popular Internet sites effortlessly and you’ll notice the difference shortly after the Memcached system starts caching database requests. You can take full advantage of the Memcached caching system with any database-powered web portal, including those that are based on widely used Content Management Systems like WordPress and Joomla.
