Memcached is a famous memory caching platform, which can improve the loading speed and the overall performance of your websites drastically if they use a database or an API. This is accomplished by caching the calls to the database/API and the replies that are returned, so if a visitor searches for some product on your website, for example, the database will not have to be accessed to display the results and the entire operation will be carried out much quicker. This goes for all types of database-driven applications and not only for shopping portals, since every time a specific web page is opened, the application sends a database request to get the content that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your site open noticeably faster, but it will also produce much less load. If any content in the database is edited, the cached replies will also be ‘refreshed’, so the site visitors won’t see any out-of-date information.
Memcached in Cloud Web Hosting
Memcached comes as an optional upgrade with each and every Linux cloud web hosting that we’re offering and you can start using it as soon as you order it, since the extension that it requires so as to perform correctly is already installed on our innovative cloud hosting platform. You can request the upgrade from the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with each and every plan and a new section where you can administer Memcached will appear. The upgrade is separated into two parts – the instances and the amount of system memory, so as to offer you more versatility. The first one shows the number of the sites which can use Memcached, whereas the second, which comes in increments of 16 megabytes, specifies the total size of the content that can be cached by the system. A traffic-heavy website with a very large database may need more memory so as to take an even bigger advantage of the Memcached caching system, so if you would like to upgrade this service, you’ll be able to do it at any point with a couple of clicks.
Memcached in VPS Web Hosting
When you acquire a virtual private server from us, you will be able to use Memcached at no additional fee, as the data caching platform is offered with all servers that are ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Even if you’ve got large sites, you can improve their overall performance without efforts and the lowered load on your virtual machine will enable you to keep using your current VPS plan instead of migrating to a more powerful one. The amount of memory that the Memcached caching platform can use to cache data depends on the plan that you are using, but even with a less powerful one, you’ll have at least several hundred MB, which is considerably more than what you’d get with a shared web hosting package, so the website performance boost will be tremendous. You can take advantage of Memcached with any database-driven app, irrespective of whether you’ve created it on your own or you are using a ready-made one like Joomla, WordPress or OpenCart.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting
Memcached comes for free with all Linux dedicated servers hosting that we’re offering and the one and only condition is that the dedicated server must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. You can use the memory caching system for any database-powered website, including those that are based on famous applications – for example, a WordPress personal journal or a Joomla-powered community web portal. Each dedicated machine is tied to a given amount of system memory that Memcached can use, but the minimum amount you’ll get is 3 gigabytes, which is sufficient enough to improve the loading speed of very busy websites noticeably, as this memory will be dedicated to storing the cached information. The Memcached system will begin caching data as soon as it is activated, so shortly after that, you’ll observe the improved overall performance of your Internet sites and the lowered load on the dedicated server. Many websites use the Memcached caching system to boost their efficacy, including famous ones like Reddit and Wikipedia.
