Memcached is a commonly used content caching system, which can boost the speed and the performance of your sites substantially if they use an API or a database. This is achieved by caching the calls to the database/API and the responses that are returned, so if someone conducts a search for some product on your Internet site, for instance, the database will not have to be accessed to display the results and the whole task will be executed significantly faster. That goes for all sorts of database-powered applications and not only for web shops, since anytime a given web page is opened, the app sends a database query to fetch the data that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your site load noticeably faster, but it will also generate much less load. If any data in the database is edited, the cached responses will also be updated, so the site visitors won’t see any out-of-date info.
Memcached in Shared Hosting
Memcached is offered as an optional upgrade with each shared hosting
account offered by us and in case you want to use it for any script-based site that you host on our advanced cloud platform, you’ll be able to order it in a few simple steps via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. In the meantime, you’ll be given the option to upgrade two separate features – the number of instances and the system memory. The first one refers to the number of the sites that can use the Memcached content caching system at the same time, 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 permitted to use in order to cache information, so for numerous sites (or for one frequently visited site), you should get more memory for better performance. The memory comes in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be ordered at any time. With Memcached, every script-powered site hosted on our servers will load blazing-fast.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can get the Memcached content caching system as an optional upgrade with all our Linux semi-dedicated hosting
and since it works with any script-driven software app, you can use it for each site that you host on our servers, irrespective of what app you have used – Mambo, Joomla™
or WordPress, a custom-developed application, etc. You can order the upgrade through the respective section of the Hepsia Control Panel from which you manage your semi-dedicated server account, and you can select two separate things – the number of instances and the amount of memory that they will use. In other words, these things determine the number of the websites that will use the Memcached caching system and how much system memory the system will be able to use to store your content. The two features are ordered independently for more freedom and one instance does not come with a fixed amount of memory. You can make use of the Memcached system with any kind of site and both you and your website visitors will quickly spot the difference in the overall performance.
Memcached in VPS
Memcached comes as standard with all Linux VPS
that are ordered with our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel. The PHP extension it requires so as to work properly is compiled when the VPS is configured, so you can begin using the memory caching platform once your new Virtual Private Server is fully ready. The memory that Memcached can employ depends on the particular plan, but even with the less powerful ones, you will get several hundred megabytes that will be at your disposal for this platform exclusively. This will permit you to enhance the performance of multiple websites hosted on the virtual server simultaneously and to decrease the load even if you have data-rich script-based sites with numerous visitors. The Memcached platform can be used with any script – Joomla™
, Mambo or Drupal™
, or a custom-made script, and you’ll observe the faster overall performance shortly after you start using it.
Memcached in Dedicated Hosting
Each dedicated server
that is ordered with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel comes with Memcached pre-installed by default, so you can start using the content caching system as soon as the dedicated server is fully ready, without the need to activate or upgrade anything. The amount of system memory that Memcached can employ depends on the server that you have picked, but as our servers are quite powerful and considering the fact that it is likely that you’ll host resource-intensive Internet sites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the caching system can use is 3 GB. This will permit you to enhance the performance of extremely heavy sites without efforts and you’ll distinguish the difference soon after the Memcached caching system begins caching database queries. You can take advantage of the Memcached system with any database-driven web portal, including those that are based on widely used Content Management Systems such as Joomla™
