Memcached is a widely used distributed memory object caching platform, which can accelerate the loading speed and the performance of your Internet sites greatly if they use an API or a database. This is accomplished by caching the requests to the database/API and the responses that are delivered, so when a customer searches for some product on your Internet site, for instance, the database won’t have to be accessed to display the results and the entire operation will be carried out noticeably quicker. This is valid for all sorts of database-powered apps and not only for online shopping portals, since anytime a given page is accessed, the app sends a database query to get the data that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your website open considerably faster, but it will also generate much less load. If any data in the database is modified, the cached responses will also be updated, so the visitors will not see any out-of-date info.
Memcached in Cloud Hosting
You can use the Memcached content caching system with all cloud hosting that we are offering. It is offered as an optional upgrade, which you can get with only a few clicks of the mouse through your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. It requires an extension, which is already installed on our cloud web hosting platform, so you can begin using the Memcached caching system the moment you order it. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts, which will offer you more versatility depending on the Internet sites that you’d like to use it for. The first part determines the number of the Internet sites that will use the Memcached caching system, or the so-called ‘instances’, whereas the second one is related 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 have added, the more data will be cached, which may be a rather good idea for high-traffic websites with very large databases and numerous simultaneous visitors. Thus, you can increase the loading speed of any script-based Internet site hosted on our cloud servers without any efforts.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can get Memcached as an upgrade with all our semi-dedicated servers and since it works with any script-powered application, you can use it for every site that you host on our semi-dedicated servers, irrespective of what app you have used – Mambo, WordPress or Joomla, a custom-developed application, etc. You can add the upgrade from the respective section of the Hepsia Control Panel from which you administer your semi-dedicated server account, and you can select two separate features – the number of instances and the amount of memory that they will use. To put it simply, these things show the number of the Internet sites that will use the Memcached caching system and how much memory the system will be able to use to store your information. The two things are ordered independently for more freedom and one instance does not come with a fixed amount of memory. You can take advantage of the Memcached system with any type of site and both you and your site visitors will quickly perceive the difference in the overall performance.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers
Memcached comes for free with all dedicated servers that we are offering and the one and only requirement is that the dedicated server must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can use the distributed memory object caching system for any database-driven Internet site, including those that are based on famous web-based applications – for example, a WordPress online journal or a Joomla-powered community website. Each dedicated server comes with a certain amount of system memory that the Memcached system can use, but the minimum you will get is three gigabytes, which is quite enough to improve the loading speed of extremely heavy sites substantially, as this very memory will be dedicated to storing the cached content. The system will begin caching content once it’s activated, so soon thereafter, you’ll note the enhanced performance of your Internet sites and the lowered load on your dedicated server. Lots of sites use the Memcached system to boost their efficacy, including popular ones like Wikipedia and Reddit.
