Memcached is a famous distributed memory caching platform, which can enhance the loading speed and the overall performance of your Internet sites drastically in case they use a database or an API. This is accomplished by caching the requests to the database/API and the replies that are returned, so when a customer searches for a given product on your site, for example, the database will not have to be accessed to show the results and the whole procedure will be completed significantly quicker. This is valid for all kinds of database-driven applications and not only for online shopping portals, since anytime a specific page is opened, the application sends a database request to get the content that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your website open noticeably faster, but it will also create much less load. If any content in the database is changed, the cached replies will also be ‘refreshed’, so the site visitors won’t see any out-of-date information.
Memcached in Shared Hosting
You can take advantage of the Memcached object caching system with all Linux shared packages offered by our company. It is available as an optional upgrade, which you can order with only a few clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It needs an extension, which is already installed on our cloud hosting platform, so you can begin using Memcached as soon as you order it. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts, which will give you more freedom depending on the Internet sites that you’d like to use it for. The first part shows the number of the websites 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 get more memory in increments of 16 MB and the more memory you’ve got, the more data will be cached, which may be a quite good idea for popular sites with large databases and plenty of concurrent visitors. In this way, you can supercharge the overall performance of any script-powered Internet site hosted on our cloud servers without any efforts.
Memcached in VPS
Memcached is offered by default with every virtual private server that we are offering on the condition that you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel, so you will not have to pay anything extra to be able to use the full potential of this data caching system. The more powerful Virtual Private Server package you select, the more memory Memcached will have for information caching purposes, but you will have at least several hundred MB at all times, which is much more than the amount of memory you’d get with a shared hosting plan. This will allow you to use the Memcached caching system for numerous Internet sites, no matter how heavy they are, which in turn goes to say that you can use a low-end package for them without overloading the virtual machine. The caching system is excellent for script-powered web applications like Joomla, WordPress, OpenCart or Mambo, and you can utilize it even with a custom-created app. Shortly after you activate the Memcached caching system, it will start caching content and you will perceive the optimized overall performance of your websites.
