Memcached is a famous data caching platform, which can improve the loading speed and the overall performance of your sites greatly if they use an API or a database. This is achieved by caching the requests to the API/database and the responses that are returned, so if someone searches for a certain product on your site, for example, the database won’t have to be accessed to show the results and the whole procedure will be performed noticeably faster. This is valid for all sorts of database-driven apps and not only for web shops, as anytime a given web page is opened, the application sends a request to its database to fetch the data that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your website open considerably faster, but it will also create much less load. If any content in the database is modified, the cached responses will also be ‘refreshed’, so the users will not see any out-of-date info.
Memcached in Shared Hosting
You can take advantage of the Memcached object caching system with all shared hosting that we are offering. It is available as an upgrade, which you can acquire with only a few clicks via your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. It needs a PHP extension, which is already installed on our cloud website hosting platform, so you can begin using Memcached the moment you order it. The upgrade is divided into two parts, which will give you more versatility depending on the websites that you’d like to use it for. The first one concerns the number of the Internet sites that will use the Memcached caching system, or the ‘instances’, whereas the second one refers to the memory, i.e. to how much content the system will be able to cache. You can order more system memory in increments of 16 MB and the more memory you’ve added, the more data will be cached, which may be a very good idea for high-demand websites with large databases and plenty of concurrent visitors. Thus, you can improve the speed of every script-driven site hosted on our cloud servers without any effort.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can get the Memcached distributed memory caching system as an optional upgrade with each of oursemi-dedicated hosting and since it works with any script-driven web application, you can use it for any Internet site that you host on our semi-dedicated servers, irrespective of what app you have used – WordPress, Joomla or Mambo, a custom-created one, etc. You can order the upgrade from the respective section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel from which you administer your semi-dedicated server account, and you can choose two separate features – the number of instances and the amount of memory that they will use. Basically, these things specify how many Internet sites will use the Memcached system and the amount of system memory that the system will be able to use to cache your info. The two things are ordered independently for more flexibility and one instance does not come with a particular amount of memory. You can use Memcached with any sort of site and both you and your website visitors will quickly detect the difference in the overall performance.
Memcached in VPS Hosting
When you order a virtual private server from us, you’ll be able to use Memcached at no extra cost, as the memory caching platform is available with all servers that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. Even if you’ve got resource-consuming sites, you’ll be able to enhance their overall performance without effort and the lowered load on your server will allow you to keep your current Virtual Private Server package rather than migrating to a more powerful one. The amount of system memory that Memcached can use to cache data depends on the package that you are using, but even with a lower-end one, you will have at least several hundred MB, which is considerably more than the amount of memory you’d get with a shared plan, so the website performance boost will be substantial. You can use Memcached with any database-powered app, no matter if you have set it up yourself or you’re using a ready-made one like WordPress, OpenCart or Joomla.
