A large number of users work with Memcached so as to increase database performance. What actually is Memcached?
Memcached is a commonly used caching platform, which can increase the speed and the overall performance of your websites significantly if they use a database or an API. This is achieved by caching the requests to the API/database and the replies that are returned, so when someone conducts a search for a certain product on your website, for instance, the database won’t have to be accessed to return the results and the whole task will be executed noticeably quicker. This goes for all sorts of database-driven applications and not only for online shopping portals, since anytime a particular web page is visited, the app connects to its database to get the content that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your site open considerably faster, but it will also generate much less server load. If any content in the database is edited, the cached responses will also be ‘refreshed’, so the website visitors will not see any out-of-date info.
Memcached in Shared Web Hosting
When you host script-driven websites in a shared web hosting
account with us, you can add the Memcached caching system to your shared hosting package with just a few clicks through your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantaneously and, since the extension required for it is already installed on our advanced cloud hosting platform, you can begin using it straight away. To give you more versatility, we offer two different upgrades related to the number of instances (in other words – how many Internet sites will use Memcached) and to the amount of memory that Memcached will use. The latter is available in increments of 16 MB and you can add memory whenever you like. Naturally, the more memory the Memcached caching system is permitted to use, the more data it will cache, so in case you manage a large-sized website with lots of data, you may require more memory in order to be able to make the most of the power that Memcached can give you.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you choose to host your websites in a semi-dedicated server
account, you will be able to take advantage of Memcached effortlessly, as the distributed memory object caching platform’s setup takes several clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The extension that it requires is already installed on our servers, so you can start using the Memcached platform the moment you add it to your semi-dedicated server account. You’ll be able to select how many websites can use it and how much data can be cached, i.e. there are two different upgradable features – the number of instances and the system memory. You can order more of both, so if one of your Internet sites becomes very busy, for example, you can always get more memory. Our system is unbelievably flexible in this regard and we don’t bind a given number of instances to a pre-defined amount of memory. You can take advantage of the Memcached platform to improve the speed of any script-powered Internet site, including those based on famous web applications, such as Joomla™
Memcached in VPS Hosting
Memcached is included by default with each and every virtual private server
that we’re offering as long as you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel, so you will not need to pay any extra money to be able to make the most of the full power of this distributed memory caching system. The more powerful Virtual Private Server plan you choose, the more memory Memcached will have for information caching purposes, but you’ll have no less than several hundred MB all the time, which is much more than what you’d get with a shared package. This will enable you to use the Memcached caching system for many Internet sites, no matter how popular they are, which in turn goes to say that you can use a lower-end plan for them without overloading the Virtual Private Server. The caching system is ideal for script-based applications like Joomla™
, WordPress, OpenCart or Mambo, and you can utilize it even with a custom-developed app. Shortly after you activate the Memcached caching system, it will start caching information and you’ll note the optimized performance of your sites.
Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting
If you acquire one of our Linux dedicated web hosting
and if you pick Hepsia as your website hosting Control Panel during the signup process, you’ll get the Memcached distributed memory caching platform by default and you can use it with any website that you host on your server without upgrading or installing anything. It will begin storing data as users visit your site, so you will notice the result of using it soon thereafter. The minimum amount of memory that will be available to the Memcached platform is 3 gigabytes and normally, the more powerful the package, the more system memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will enable you to use the caching platform for multiple Internet sites or for a very large site without compromising its efficacy. The Memcached platform will enable you to accelerate the loading speed of any database-driven Internet site in no time – a Joomla™
portal, a WordPress personal weblog, an OpenCart web shop, etcetera, and to improve the overall performance of your dedicated server.
