Memcached is a distributed memory caching system, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years due to its efficiency. It is used to cache queries and responses between a database and the application that is using it, which can enhance the performance of your site and lessen the generated load significantly. Every time a page on an application-powered site is opened, the app connects to the database and "asks" what info should be displayed, and then drags it. With Memcached, these steps are skipped, as the platform has already cached all the content that should show up on a certain webpage. In case any data is updated, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the users will never see old data. Memcached is a perfect choice for any site that attracts plenty of viewers, as it will make it faster than light and will improve the user experience.
Memcached in Shared Web Hosting
Memcached is available as an optional upgrade with each and every shared web hosting package offered by our company and if you want to use it for any script-based site that you host on our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform, you’ll be able to add it in a couple of easy steps via your Hepsia Control Panel. In the meantime, you’ll be given the option to upgrade two separate things – the instances and the system memory. The first one refers to the number of the sites that can use the Memcached distributed memory object caching system simultaneously, so if you need it for several sites, you can order a handful of instances. The second one has to do with the maximum amount of memory that Memcached will be allowed to use to cache info, so for a lot of sites (or for one large-scale site), you’d better order more memory for better results. The memory is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be added every time you need it. With the Memcached caching system, each script-based website hosted on our servers will load extra-fast.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers
You can use the full potential of Memcached with every dedicated server that we’re offering in case you select Hepsia as your hosting Control Panel. A section in it is dedicated to the distributed memory caching system and you can begin using Memcached for any site hosted on the dedicated machine with just several clicks of the mouse. You can improve the performance of any website, no matter what script-driven app you’re using or how heavy the website is, since the minimum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to employ is 3 GB and this amount increases considerably with the more powerful servers. Soon after the caching system is activated, it will start caching data each time someone accesses your website, so, once enough info has been cached, you will detect the lowered load on your server and the optimized performance of the website. The Memcached system is used by a lot of websites, among them famous portals like Wikipedia, Zynga and Reddit, which is an evidence of the efficiency of the caching system.
