More and more users use Memcached so as to raise database performance. What actually is Memcached?
Memcached is a widely used distributed memory caching system, which can increase the speed and the performance of your Internet sites considerably if they use a database or an API. This is achieved by caching the calls to the database/API and the responses that are returned, so if a visitor conducts a search for a given product on your Internet site, for instance, the database won’t have to be accessed to show the results and the whole procedure will be completed significantly quicker. This goes for all sorts of database-driven applications and not only for web stores, since every time a specific page is opened, the application sends a database query to get the content that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your site load much faster, but it will also produce much less load. If any content in the database is updated, the cached responses will also be updated, so the visitors will not see any out-of-date info.
Memcached in Web Hosting
You can make use of Memcached with all web hosting
that we offer. It is offered as an upgrade, which you can order with just a few clicks of the mouse from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It needs an extension, which is already installed on our cloud web hosting platform, so you can begin using Memcached as soon as you add it. The upgrade is separated into two parts, which will give you more freedom depending on the Internet sites that you would like to use it for. The first part shows the number of the sites that will use the Memcached caching system, or the ‘instances’, whereas the second one refers to the system memory, in other words – to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can add more system memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you’ve added, the more content will be cached, which may be a rather good idea for busy websites with very large databases and a lot of concurrent visitors. Thus, you can increase the performance of every script-powered site hosted on our servers without any efforts.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you acquire any of our semi-dedicated server
packages, you’ll find Memcached as an optional upgrade in the Upgrades section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, so if you want to use it for any of the websites hosted in the semi-dedicated server hosting account, you can activate it with just a couple of clicks of the mouse. The distributed memory object caching platform is suitable for any script-driven web app such as WordPress, Joomla™
, or even a tailor-made one, and depending on your requirements, you will be able to select two different features – how many Internet sites will use the Memcached caching platform, in other words – the number of instances; and how much information will be stored, in other words – the amount of system memory that the platform will employ. The two things are not bound to each other, so if you have a busy Internet site with lots of data, you can get one instance and a larger amount of memory. The Memcached platform will increase the overall performance of your sites shortly after you activate it and both you and your visitors will enjoy much better loading speeds.
Memcached in VPS Servers
Memcached is offered by default with every VPS server
that we’re offering provided that you select Hepsia as your Control Panel, so you will not have to pay anything extra to be able to make the most of the full capacity of this object caching system. The more powerful plan you pick, the more memory Memcached will have for information storage purposes, but you will have at least several hundred megabytes at all times, which is much more than the amount of memory you would get with a shared package. This will permit you to use Memcached for lots of Internet sites, regardless of how popular they are, which in turn goes to say that you can use a low-end package for them without overloading your VPS server. The Memcached caching system is ideal for script-powered software applications like OpenCart, Joomla™
, WordPress or Mambo, and you can use it even with a custom app. Shortly after you enable Memcached, it will begin caching info and you will notice the enhanced performance of your websites.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers
Each dedicated server
ordered with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel comes with Memcached already installed by default, so you can begin using this distributed memory caching system once the server is fully functional, without needing to upgrade or activate anything. The amount of system memory that Memcached can employ depends on the server that you’ve selected, but as our servers are extremely powerful and due to the fact that it is likely that you’ll host resource-intensive websites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the caching system can use will be three gigabytes. This will permit you to enhance the overall performance of very large websites without any effort and you’ll distinguish the difference shortly after Memcached starts caching database requests. You can make the most of the caching system with any database-driven portal, including those based on widely used CMSs like WordPress and Joomla™
