Memcached is an object caching system, which has been gaining popularity lately because of its effectiveness. It’s used to cache queries and responses between a database and the app that uses it, which can enhance the overall performance of your Internet site and reduce the produced load drastically. Anytime a page on an app-driven website is visited, the application connects to the database and "asks" what information should be shown, and then pulls it. With Memcached, these steps are skipped, since the platform has already cached the content that should show up on a particular web page. In case any data is updated, the Memcached content is updated too, so the site visitors will never see outdated data. The Memcached platform is an ideal choice for any Internet site that has a lot of viewers, since it will make it open much faster and will enhance the overall user experience.
Memcached in Hosting
You can make use of the Memcached distributed memory caching system with all hosting offered by us. It’s offered as an upgrade, which you can activate with only a few clicks via your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. It requires an extension, which is already installed on our cloud website hosting platform, so you can begin using the Memcached caching system as soon as you add it. The upgrade is divided into two parts, which will offer you more flexibility depending on the sites that you want to use it for. The first one indicates the number of the Internet sites that will use Memcached, or the so-called ‘instances’, whereas the second one is related to the system memory, in other words – to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can get more system memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you have ordered, the more content will be cached, which may be a very good idea for heavy-traffic websites with large-sized databases and numerous visitors. In this way, you can enhance the performance of any script-based website hosted on our cloud servers without effort.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers
Memcached is available free of charge with all dedicated servers offered by us and the sole requirement is that the server must be ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You can use the distributed memory object caching system for any database-powered website, including those that are based on widely used web apps – for example, a WordPress personal weblog or a Joomla-driven community web portal. Each dedicated machine comes with a different amount of system memory that the Memcached caching system can use, but the minimum you will get is 3 GB, which is sufficient enough to increase the load speed of very popular websites seriously, as this memory will be dedicated to storing the cached info. The system will begin caching content as soon as it’s activated, so soon thereafter, you will distinguish the improved overall performance of your websites and the decreased load. A lot of sites use the Memcached caching system to enhance their efficiency, among them popular ones like Wikipedia and Reddit.
