Memcached is a commonly used distributed memory caching platform, which can increase the speed and the performance of your websites greatly in case they use an API or a database. This is achieved by caching the calls to the API/database and the responses that are delivered, so when a client 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 procedure will be executed much quicker. This is valid for all kinds of database-driven applications and not only for web shops, since every time a particular page is visited, the app sends a request to its database to fetch the content that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your site open noticeably faster, but it will also produce much less server load. If any data in the database is updated, the cached responses will also be ‘refreshed’, so the users won’t see any out-of-date info.
Memcached in Cloud Web Hosting
The Memcached caching system comes as an optional upgrade with each Linux cloud web hosting that we are offering and you’ll be able to start using it the moment you activate it, since the extension that it requires in order to perform correctly is already present on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform. You can order the upgrade through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with every shared hosting package and a brand-new section where you can manage Memcached will appear. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts – the instances and the memory, so as to give you more freedom. The first one shows the number of the sites which can use the Memcached caching system, while the second one, which is offered in increments of 16 megabytes, determines the total size of the content that can be cached by the system. A popular Internet site with a large database may require more memory so as to take an even bigger advantage of the Memcached caching system, so if you want to upgrade this feature, you’ll be able to do it at any given moment with several clicks of the mouse.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can add the Memcached content caching platform to any of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we’re offering and use its full capacity for any script-driven site hosted by us. The upgrade is accessible through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can choose two features – the number of instances and the system memory. These things define how many websites can use the Memcached platform and how much system memory it will use to cache your data. You can choose them independently, since one instance is not tied to a particular amount of memory, so you can use plenty of memory for one traffic-intensive website, for instance. This upgrade is available in increments of 16 megabytes and you can get as much memory as you wish. The Memcached platform can be used with any script-powered site regardless of its type, including those based on popular Internet applications like Joomla, Drupal or WordPress, and a lot of companies such as Wikipedia and Zynga are already using it to boost the speed of their sites.
Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting
You can make use of the full potential of Memcached with each and every dedicated server that we’re offering in case you select Hepsia as your Control Panel. A special section in it is dedicated to the object caching system and you can start using Memcached for any website hosted on the dedicated server with just several mouse clicks. You can increase the overall performance of any website, irrespective of what script-driven software application you are using or how heavy the Internet site is, since the minimum amount of system memory that Memcached will be able to employ is three gigabytes and this amount increases tremendously with the more powerful servers. Soon after the system is enabled, it will begin caching content anytime somebody visits your website, so, as soon as enough data has been stored, you will distinguish the reduced server load and the optimized overall performance of the Internet site. Memcached is used by lots of sites, including popular portals such as Reddit, Wikipedia and Zynga, which shows the effectiveness of the Memcached caching system.
