More and more users work with Memcached to increase database performance. What is Memcached?
Memcached is a commonly used content caching platform, which can accelerate the speed and the performance of your Internet sites drastically if they use a database or an API. This is achieved by caching the requests to the API/database and the responses that are returned, so if somebody searches for a particular product on your website, for example, the database will not have to be accessed to return the results and the whole task will be executed much faster. That goes for all sorts of database-driven apps and not only for Internet shops, as anytime a page is opened, the application sends a database request to fetch the data that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your site load much faster, but it will also generate much less load. If any content in the database is edited, the cached responses will also be ‘refreshed’, so the site visitors won’t see any out-of-date information.
Memcached in Cloud Website Hosting
The Memcached distributed memory object caching system is offered as an optional upgrade with every cloud website hosting
that we’re offering and you will be able to begin using it once you enable it, since the extension that it requires so as to function properly is already installed on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform. You can order the upgrade via the Hepsia Control Panel, which is offered with each and every hosting plan and a brand-new section where you can administer Memcached will appear. The upgrade is separated into two parts – the instances and the memory, so as to give you more freedom. The first one shows the number of the websites that can use the Memcached caching system, while the second, which comes in increments of 16 megabytes, specifies the total size of the content that the system can cache. A regularly visited website with a large-size database may require more memory so as to take an even greater advantage of the Memcached caching system, so in case you’d like to upgrade this service, you will be able to do it at any given time with a few clicks.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can get the Memcached distributed memory object caching system as an optional upgrade with all our semi-dedicated hosting services
and since it works with any script-based web application, you can use it for each Internet site that you host on our platform, regardless of what application you have used – WordPress, Mambo or Joomla™
, a custom-developed one, etc. You can request the upgrade via the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel from which you administer your semi-dedicated server account, and you can select two different features – the number of instances and the amount of memory that they will use. To put it in simple terms, these things indicate how many websites will use the Memcached system and the amount of system memory that the system will be able to use in order to cache your info. The two features are offered separately for more freedom and one instance does not come with a particular amount of memory. You can take full advantage of Memcached with any kind of site and both you and the site visitors will swiftly spot the difference in the overall performance.
Memcached in VPS
If you obtain a virtual private server
from us, you’ll be able to use Memcached at no extra cost, as the caching platform is available with all Virtual Private Servers ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. Even if you have content-loaded sites, you can increase their performance effortlessly and the decreased load on the server will enable you to continue using your current VPS plan rather than upgrading to a more powerful one. The amount of system memory that the Memcached platform can use to store data depends on the plan that you’re using, but even with a lower-end one, you will get at least several hundred megabytes, which is significantly more than the amount of memory you’d get with a shared web hosting plan, so the website performance boost will be tremendous. You can take advantage of Memcached with any database-driven application, irrespective of whether you have set it up yourself or you are using a ready-for-use one like WordPress, Joomla™
Memcached in Dedicated Hosting
You can unleash the full potential of Memcached with every dedicated server
offered by us if you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. A special section in it is dedicated to the object caching system and you can begin using Memcached for any website hosted on the dedicated server with only a couple of clicks. You can increase the performance of any Internet site, regardless of what script-based application you’re using or how popular the Internet site is, as the minimum amount of system memory that Memcached will be able to use is 3 GB and this amount rises immensely with the more powerful servers. Soon after the caching system is activated, it will begin caching info anytime someone opens your website, so, as soon as sufficient information has been stored, you’ll distinguish the reduced load on your server and the optimized performance of the website. The Memcached caching system is being used by numerous websites, including famous portals such as Wikipedia, Zynga and Reddit, which proves the effectiveness of the Memcached caching system.
