Find out what Memcached is and exactly why many people use it for their databases.
Memcached is a widespread caching platform, which can enhance the loading speed and the performance of your sites greatly if they use a database or an API. This is achieved by caching the requests to the API/database and the replies that are delivered, so if a user conducts a search for a particular product on your Internet site, for example, the database will not have to be accessed to show the results and the whole operation will be executed much faster. This is valid for all types of database-powered apps and not only for web stores, as every time a web page is opened, the app connects to its database to get the data that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your website load noticeably faster, but it will also produce much less load. If any content in the database is updated, the cached responses will also be ‘refreshed’, so the visitors will not see any out-of-date info.
Memcached in Shared Web Hosting
You can take advantage of the Memcached caching system with all Linux shared web hosting packages
offered by us. It’s available as an upgrade, which you can enable with only a couple of mouse clicks from your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. It needs an extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud website hosting platform, so you can begin using the Memcached caching system once you order it. The upgrade is separated into two parts, which will give you more versatility depending on the sites that you want to use it for. The first part determines the number of the sites that will use Memcached, or the so-called ‘instances’, whereas the second one is related to the memory, i.e. to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can order more memory in increments of 16 MB and the more memory you have added, the more data will be cached, which may be a rather good idea for busy sites with large-sized databases and lots of visitors. Thus, you can boost the speed of every script-based Internet site hosted on our cloud servers without any effort.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can add Memcached to any of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages
that we are offering and make use of its full potential for any script-driven site hosted on our servers. The upgrade is offered through the Hepsia Control Panel and you can choose two things – the number of instances and the memory. These things determine the number of the sites that can use the Memcached caching platform and how much memory it will use to cache your info. You can select them independently, since one instance is not linked to a fixed amount of memory, so you can use plenty of memory for a single frequently visited Internet site, for instance. This upgrade is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order as much memory as you wish. The Memcached platform can be used with any script-driven site irrespective of its type, including those based on widespread software apps like WordPress, Joomla™
, and many companies like Zynga and Wikipedia are already using it to boost the overall performance of their sites.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting
You can unlock the full potential of Memcached with every dedicated server
offered by our company if you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel. A section in it is dedicated to the memory caching system and you can start using Memcached for any website hosted on the machine with just a few mouse clicks. You can boost the overall performance of any site, irrespective of what script-driven web app you rely on or how large the Internet site is, as the minimum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to use is three gigabytes and this amount grows substantially with the more powerful servers. Soon after the system is activated, it will start caching info each time someone opens your website, so, once sufficient info has been stored, you’ll perceive the decreased load on the dedicated server and the improved overall performance of your Internet site. The Memcached system is used by plenty of sites, among them famous portals such as Reddit, Zynga and Wikipedia, which proves the efficiency of the Memcached system.
