Memcached is an object caching platform, which has been gaining popularity lately owing to its efficiency. It’s used to cache queries and responses between a database and the application that is using it, which can increase the performance of your website and lessen the generated load greatly. Every time a page on an app-powered website is accessed, the application connects to the database and "asks" what info should be shown, and then fetches it. With Memcached, these steps are omitted, as the platform has already cached the content that should show up on a specific page. In case any data is changed, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ too, so the users will never end up seeing out-of-date content. The Memcached platform is a perfect choice for any Internet site that attracts a lot of viewers, since it will make it lightning-fast and will improve the user experience.
Memcached in Web Hosting
You can take advantage of the Memcached memory caching system with all web hosting that we offer. It’s offered as an upgrade, which you can activate with just a few clicks of the mouse via your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. It requires an extension, which is already installed on our cloud web hosting platform, so you can start using Memcached as soon as you order it. The upgrade is separated into two parts, which will offer you more freedom depending on the Internet sites that you wish to use it for. The first part indicates the number of the websites that will use Memcached, or the ‘instances’, while the second one refers to the memory, in other words – to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can add more memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you have, the more data will be cached, which may be an exceptionally good idea for high-demand websites with very large databases and lots of simultaneous visitors. Thus, you can optimize the performance of any script-driven site hosted on our cloud servers with no effort.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers
Memcached is available free of charge with all dedicated servers that we are offering and the sole requirement is that the dedicated server must be ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel. You can use the caching system for any database-powered website, including those that are based on widely used web apps – for instance, a WordPress personal weblog or a Joomla-powered community website. Each server comes with a particular amount of memory that the Memcached system can employ, but the minimum amount you’ll get is three gigabytes, which is sufficient enough to boost the speed of extremely popular sites noticeably, since this memory will be dedicated to storing the cached content. The Memcached system will start storing data as soon as it’s activated, so soon after that, you’ll notice the enhanced performance of your sites and the reduced load on the server. Numerous Internet sites use Memcached to enhance their effectiveness, among them popular ones such as Wikipedia and Reddit.
