Memcached is a widely used caching platform, which can boost the speed and the performance of your websites greatly in case they use an API or a database. This is accomplished by caching the calls to the database/API and the responses that are returned, so if a customer conducts a search for some product on your site, for instance, the database won’t have to be accessed to show the results and the whole operation will be carried out considerably faster. That goes for all types of database-driven apps and not only for online shopping portals, since every time a particular web page is accessed, the application connects to its database to fetch the data that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your site load noticeably faster, but it will also produce much less load. If any data in the database is edited, the cached responses will also be updated, so the users will not see any out-of-date info.
Memcached in Website Hosting
Memcached is available as an optional upgrade with each website hosting package offered by us and in case you wish to use it for any script-based Internet site that you host on our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform, you’ll be able to activate it in a couple of simple steps through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. During the process, you’ll be given the option to upgrade two different features – the number of instances and the memory. The first one is related to the number of the websites that can use the Memcached content caching system at the same time, so if you need it for several sites, you can order a number of instances. The second one refers to the maximum amount of memory that Memcached will be allowed to use in order to cache data, so for a lot of websites (or for one resource-intensive site), you may want to order more memory for improved performance. The memory comes in increments of 16 MB and more memory can be ordered every time you need it. With Memcached, each script-driven Internet site hosted on our servers will load much faster.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you decide to host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server account, you can take advantage of Memcached with ease, as the memory caching platform’s setup takes a few clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia Control Panel. The extension that it requires is already installed on our semi-dedicated servers, so you can start using Memcached the moment you add it to your account. You’ll be able to select how many sites can use it and how much info it will cache, i.e. there’re two separate upgradable features – the number of instances and the system memory. You can order more of both, so if one of your Internet sites becomes very busy, for instance, you can always add more memory to it. Our system is incredibly flexible in this regard and we don’t bind a specific number of instances to a fixed amount of memory. You can employ the Memcached caching platform to accelerate any script-powered Internet site, including those that are based on famous software applications, such as WordPress or Joomla.
