Discover what Memcached is and how come a lot more people utilize it for their databases.
Memcached is a famous memory caching system, which can boost the speed and the performance of your Internet sites significantly in case they use a database or an API. This is achieved by caching the requests to the database/API and the replies that are returned, so if a customer searches for some product on your website, for example, the database won’t have to be accessed to return the results and the entire operation will be carried out much faster. This goes for all sorts of database-driven applications and not only for Internet shops, since anytime a web page is opened, the application sends a request to its database to get the data that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your website open noticeably faster, but it will also generate much less load. If any content in the database is edited, the cached replies will also be updated, so the visitors will not see any outdated info.
Memcached in Shared Website Hosting
Memcached is available as an upgrade with each and every shared website hosting
package offered by us and in case you would like to use it for any script-driven site that you host on our avant-garde cloud platform, you will be able to add it in a couple of simple steps through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. During the process, you’ll be given the option to upgrade two different things – the instances and the memory. The first one has to do with the number of the Internet sites that can use the Memcached data caching system at the same time, so if you need it for several websites, you can order a number of instances. The second one has to do with the total amount of memory that the system will be able to use to cache data, so for a lot of sites (or for one single large site), you’d better order more memory for better results. The memory is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be ordered at any time. With the Memcached caching system, every script-powered site hosted on our servers will open much faster.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can add the Memcached distributed memory object caching platform to any of the semi-dedicated plans
offered by our company and make use of its full potential for any script-powered Internet site hosted by us. The upgrade is offered through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can select two things – the number of instances and the system memory. These things show the number of the websites that can use the Memcached caching platform and the amount of system memory that it will use to cache your content. You can select them independently, since one instance is not bound to a specific amount of system memory, so you can use plenty of memory for one traffic-heavy Internet site, for instance. This feature comes in increments of 16 MB and you can get as much memory as you want. The platform can be used with any script-powered website irrespective of its type, including those that are based on popular software applications like WordPress, Joomla™
, and plenty of companies like Wikipedia and Zynga are already using it to optimize the overall performance of their sites.
Memcached in VPS Servers
You will get Memcached with each of the VPS server
packages that we are offering when you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel and you will be able to activate the distributed memory caching platform through the Control Panel section with the exact same name. The setup takes a few mouse clicks and you will detect the difference in the overall performance of your websites almost momentarily. The amount of memory that the Memcached caching platform can employ to store content depends on the particular Virtual Private Server package that you’ve picked, but in any case it will not be less than several hundred megabytes, which is quite enough even for multiple traffic-heavy websites. You can use Memcached with websites based on Joomla™
, WordPress or any other Internet app and reduce the load on your Virtual Private Server, which will permit you to continue using the current Virtual Private Server plan instead of moving to a more powerful one, as you simply won’t need it. The Memcached platform is already being used by popular websites such as Wikipedia, Reddit and Zynga, which is a proof of its efficiency.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers
Each dedicated server
ordered with our Hepsia Control Panel comes with Memcached already installed by default, so you can start using this distributed memory object caching system once the dedicated server is fully functional, without the need to activate or upgrade anything. The amount of system memory that Memcached can use depends on the dedicated server that you’ve chosen, but since our servers are astonishingly powerful and due to the fact that it’s likely that you will host resource-demanding sites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the caching system can use is three gigabytes. This will enable you to optimize the overall performance of very heavy sites effortlessly and you’ll detect the difference shortly after the Memcached caching system starts caching database requests. You can make use of the Memcached system with any database-powered website, including those that are based on famous CMSs like WordPress and Joomla™
