Discover what Memcached is and exactly why many people utilize it for their databases.
Memcached is a commonly used object caching platform, which can boost the loading speed and the overall performance of your Internet sites immensely in case 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 when a visitor conducts a search for some product on your website, for instance, the database won’t have to be accessed to display the results and the entire procedure will be carried out considerably quicker. This goes for all kinds of database-powered apps and not only for online shops, as every time a particular web page is visited, the application sends a request to its database to fetch the content that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your site load much faster, but it will also create much less load. If any data in the database is modified, the cached replies will also be ‘refreshed’, so the users won’t see any outdated information.
Memcached in Cloud Web Hosting
You can use the Memcached object caching system with all Linux cloud web hosting
that we’re offering. It’s offered as an upgrade, which you can add with only a few clicks of the mouse through your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. It needs a PHP extension, which is already installed on our cloud website hosting platform, so you can start using the Memcached caching system once you order it. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts, which will give you more freedom depending on the websites that you would like to use it for. The first part indicates the number of the sites that will use Memcached, or the ‘instances’, while the second one is related to the memory, in other words – to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can add more memory in increments of 16 MB and the more memory you have, the more content will be cached, which may be a really good idea for high-demand sites with large-size databases and plenty of simultaneous visitors. In this way, you can increase the overall performance of every script-based Internet site hosted on our cloud servers with no effort.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you decide to host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server
account, you will be able to take advantage of Memcached with ease, as the object caching platform’s activation requires a few clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia Control Panel. The extension that it requires is already installed on our servers, so you can begin using the Memcached platform the moment you add it to your account. You’ll be able to choose how many websites can use it and how much info can be cached, i.e. there are two separate upgradable features – the instances and the amount of memory. You can get more of both, so if one of your sites becomes very popular, for instance, you can always order more memory. Our system is incredibly flexible in this regard and we don’t tie a given number of instances to a fixed amount of memory. You can use the Memcached platform to speed up any script-driven website, including those that are based on popular software apps, such as Joomla™
Memcached in VPS Servers
Memcached comes as standard with all Linux VPS servers
that are ordered with our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel. The extension it requires so as to work properly is compiled when the Virtual Private Server is set up, so you can start using the data caching platform once your new virtual server is ready. The system memory that the Memcached platform can use depends on the given plan, but even with the less powerful plans, you will get several hundred megabytes that will be at your disposal for this platform exclusively. This will permit you to boost the overall performance of multiple sites hosted on the VPS at the same time and to lower the load even if you’ve got traffic-intensive script-powered portals with numerous users. The caching platform can be used with any script – Mambo, Joomla™
, or a custom-developed one, and you will observe the better performance shortly after you begin using it.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers
When you order any of our dedicated service
and if you pick Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel during the signup process, you will get the Memcached memory caching platform by default and you can use it with any site that you host on the server without upgrading or installing anything. It will begin storing data as people open your site, so you’ll see the results of using it soon after that. The minimum amount of memory that will be available to the Memcached platform is 3 gigabytes and normally, the more powerful the dedicate server package, the more memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will permit you to use the platform for a large number of sites or for a very busy Internet site without compromising its effectiveness. Memcached will enable you to optimize the loading speed of any database-driven website very quickly – a Joomla™
portal, a WordPress personal blog, an OpenCart web store, etcetera, and to optimize the overall performance of your server.
