Memcached is a content caching platform, which has been gaining popularity in recent years owing to its efficiency. It’s used to cache queries and responses between a database and the app that uses it, which can accelerate the performance of your Internet site and decrease the produced load drastically. Anytime a web page on an app-driven Internet site is visited, the application connects to the database and "asks" what information should be shown, and then pulls it. With Memcached, these steps are omitted, since the platform has already cached the content that should be shown on a specific page. If any content is updated, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the website visitors will never end up seeing old content. The platform is an ideal option for every website that draws numerous viewers, as it will accelerate it and will enhance the user experience.
Memcached in Hosting
The Memcached distributed memory object caching system comes as an optional upgrade with each Linux hosting that we offer and you’ll be able to begin using it once you add it, as the extension that it requires so as to function properly is already present on our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform. You can request the upgrade from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with each shared hosting package and a new section where you can manage Memcached will appear. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts – the instances and the memory, so as to offer you more freedom. The first one shows the number of the websites which can use Memcached, while the second, which is offered in increments of 16 megabytes, determines the maximum size of the content that can be cached by the system. A traffic-intensive Internet site with a large database may require more memory to take an even bigger advantage of the Memcached caching system, so if you need to upgrade this service, you’ll be able to do it at any time with several mouse clicks.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting
Any dedicated server that is ordered with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel comes with Memcached already installed by default, so you can begin using this data caching system the moment the dedicated server is completely functional, without having to install or upgrade anything. The amount of memory that Memcached can employ depends on the very server that you have chosen, but since our servers are extremely powerful and due to the fact that it is likely that you will host resource-hungry websites on them, the minimum amount of memory that the caching system can use is three gigabytes. This will permit you to optimize the performance of very busy websites without effort and you’ll observe the difference soon after Memcached starts caching database requests. You can take advantage of the caching system with any database-driven online portal, including those that are based on widely used Content Management Systems like Joomla and WordPress.
