More and more users use Memcached to raise database performance. What actually is Memcached?
Memcached is a famous distributed memory caching system, which can enhance the speed and the performance of your Internet sites considerably in case they use a database or an API. This is achieved by caching the calls to the API/database and the responses that are delivered, so when a user searches for a particular product on your site, for instance, the database won’t have to be accessed to return the results and the entire operation will be executed noticeably faster. This goes for all sorts of database-powered applications and not only for shopping portals, as every time a particular web page is accessed, the app sends a query to its database to fetch the data that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your website open considerably faster, but it will also produce much less load. If any data in the database is modified, the cached replies will also be updated, so the visitors will not see any outdated information.
Memcached in Cloud Hosting
Memcached comes as an upgrade with each cloud hosting
package offered by our company and if you wish to use it for any script-based Internet site that you host on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform, you will be able to order it in a couple of simple steps through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. In the meantime, you will be offered the option to upgrade two different features – the instances and the memory. The first one is related to the number of the websites that can use the Memcached distributed memory caching system at the same time, so if you need it for several Internet sites, you can order a number of instances. The second one refers to the total amount of memory that the system will be able to use to cache content, so for many websites (or for one single large site), you should order more memory for better performance. The memory comes in increments of 16 MB and more memory can be ordered at any time. With Memcached, every script-powered website hosted on our servers will load unbelievably fast.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you choose to host your sites in a semi-dedicated server
account, you will be able to take advantage of Memcached easily, as the distributed memory object caching platform’s setup requires a few clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. The PHP extension that it requires is pre-installed on our semi-dedicated servers, so you can begin using the Memcached platform as soon as you add it to your account. You will be able to choose how many sites can use it and how much information it will cache, in other words – there’re two separate features that can be upgraded – the number of instances and the amount of memory. You can add more of both, so if one of your websites becomes very busy, for instance, you can always add more memory to it. Our system is unbelievably flexible in this regard and we do not tie a particular number of instances to a fixed amount of memory. You can use the Memcached platform to speed up any script-powered Internet site, including those that are based on famous web-based apps, such as Joomla™
Memcached in VPS Servers
You will get Memcached with each of the VPS server
plans that we offer when you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel and you will be able to activate the platform via the section with the very same name. The configuration takes a couple of clicks and you will see the difference in the overall performance of your sites almost momentarily. The amount of memory that Memcached can use to store information depends on the given Virtual Private Server hosting plan that you’ve chosen, but in any case it will be at least several hundred MB, which is more than enough even for several regularly visited Internet sites. You can use the Memcached platform with websites based on WordPress, Joomla™
or any other Internet application and decrease the load on your virtual machine, which will permit you to continue using the current Virtual Private Server hosting plan instead of migrating to a more powerful one, since you will simply not need it. The Memcached platform is already being used by famous websites like Zynga, Wikipedia and Reddit, which demonstrates its effectiveness.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers
You can make use of the full potential of Memcached with each dedicated server
that we offer if you pick Hepsia as your Control Panel. A special section in it is dedicated to the caching system and you can start using Memcached for any website hosted on the dedicated server with just several mouse clicks. You can enhance the overall performance of any site, no matter what script-based application you rely on or how large the website is, since the minimum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to employ is 3 GB and this amount grows immensely with the more powerful dedicated servers. Shortly after the system is enabled, it will begin caching data every time somebody visits your website, so, once enough data has been stored, you will distinguish the reduced load on your dedicated machine and the enhanced overall performance of your Internet site. Memcached is being used by numerous websites, among them famous portals like Zynga, Wikipedia and Reddit, which confirms the effectiveness of the Memcached system.
