Memcached is a commonly used distributed memory object caching system, which can boost the speed and the overall performance of your Internet sites tremendously in case they use a database or an API. This is accomplished by caching the requests to the database/API and the responses that are returned, so when a client searches for a specific 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 executed noticeably quicker. This is valid for all types of database-powered applications and not only for e-stores, as every time a particular web page is accessed, the application connects to its database to fetch the content that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your site load significantly faster, but it will also produce much less load. If any content in the database is updated, the cached responses will also be updated, so the visitors won’t see any old information.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you purchase any of our semi-dedicated server packages, you will find Memcached as an optional upgrade in the Upgrades section of your Hepsia Control Panel, so if you would like to use it for any of the websites hosted in your semi-dedicated server hosting account, you can activate it with only a couple of clicks of the mouse. The caching platform is suitable for any script-based software app such as WordPress, Joomla, or even a custom-made one, and based on your necessities, you’ll be able to choose two separate features – how many Internet sites will use the Memcached caching platform, i.e. the number of instances; and how much content will be cached, in other words – the amount of memory that the platform will use. The two things are not tied to each other, so if you own a traffic-hungry Internet site with lots of content, you can order one instance and a large amount of system memory. The Memcached caching platform will increase the performance of your Internet sites shortly after you activate it and both you and your visitors will enjoy better loading times.
Memcached in VPS Hosting
Memcached comes by default with all VPS hosting ordered with our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel. The extension it needs so as to function properly is compiled when the server is configured, so you can start using the data caching platform the moment your brand new Virtual Private Server is fully ready. The memory that the Memcached caching platform can employ depends on the particular plan, but even with the low-end plans, you’ll get several hundred megabytes that will be at your disposal for this platform exclusively. This will permit you to optimize the overall performance of numerous websites hosted on the VPS server at the same time and to reduce the load on the virtual machine even if you own resource-hungry script-driven portals with multiple viewers. The Memcached platform can be used with any script – Joomla, Drupal or Mambo, or a custom-made script, and you’ll observe the better overall performance soon after you begin using it.
Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting
Memcached is available for free with all dedicated hosting services 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 content caching system for any database-powered Internet site, including those based on famous web-based apps – for instance, a WordPress personal diary or a Joomla-driven social network. Each dedicated machine is tied to a particular amount of system memory that the Memcached caching system can employ, but the minimum amount you’ll get is 3 gigabytes, which is sufficient enough to accelerate the speed of very busy sites noticeably, since this memory will be dedicated to storing the cached info. The Memcached system will begin caching content once it is enabled, so soon thereafter, you will distinguish the optimized overall performance of your Internet sites and the lowered load on the dedicated machine. Lots of sites use the Memcached system to boost their effectiveness, including popular ones such as Wikipedia and Reddit.
