Memcached is a distributed memory object caching system, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years owing to its efficiency. It is used to cache calls and responses between a database and the application that is using it, which can accelerate the performance of your Internet site and reduce the created load immensely. Anytime a page on an app-powered site is accessed, the app connects to the database and "asks" what information should be shown, and then drags it. With Memcached, these steps are omitted, as the platform has already cached the content that should be displayed on a given web page. If any content is updated, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ too, so the visitors will never end up seeing old content. Memcached is an ideal option for any website that entices a lot of viewers, since it will speed it up and will improve the user experience.
Memcached in Cloud Hosting
When you host script-driven websites in a cloud hosting account with our company, you can add the Memcached caching system to your shared hosting package with just a couple of clicks of the mouse through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantaneously and, since the required PHP extension is pre-installed on our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform, you can start using it right away. To give you more flexibility, we offer two different upgrades related to the number of instances (in other words – how many sites will use Memcached) and to the system memory that the Memcached caching system will use. The latter comes in increments of 16 megabytes and you can add memory whenever you like. Logically, the more memory the Memcached caching system is permitted to use, the more content it will cache, so in case you run a popular website with a lot of data, you may require more memory in order to be able to take advantage of the power that Memcached can give you.
Memcached in Dedicated Web Hosting
Each dedicated server that’s ordered with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel comes with Memcached already installed by default, so you can begin using this object caching system the moment your dedicated server is completely operational, without the need to upgrade or install anything. The amount of memory that Memcached can employ depends on the very server that you’ve chosen, but as our servers are rather powerful and due to the fact that it’s likely that you’ll host resource-demanding sites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the caching system can use is three gigabytes. This will enable you to boost the performance of extremely busy Internet sites effortlessly and you will distinguish the difference shortly after the Memcached caching system begins caching database calls. You can take full advantage of the Memcached system with any database-driven website, including those that are based on widely used CMSs such as Joomla and WordPress.
