Memcached is a popular content caching system, which can accelerate the speed and the overall performance of your sites tremendously if they use a database or an API. This is achieved by caching the requests to the API/database and the replies that are returned, so when a client conducts a search for a specific product on your website, for instance, the database won’t have to be accessed to show the results and the whole procedure will be executed noticeably quicker. That goes for all types of database-powered applications and not only for e-shops, as anytime a particular page is opened, the app sends a request to its database to fetch the data that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your site load noticeably faster, but it will also generate much less server load. If any content in the database is updated, the cached replies will also be ‘refreshed’, so the users won’t see any outdated information.
Memcached in Shared Website Hosting
Memcached is available as an upgrade with each shared website hosting account that we offer and if you’d like to use it for any script-powered Internet site that you host on our avant-garde cloud website hosting platform, you’ll be able to order it in several simple steps via your Hepsia Control Panel. During the process, you will be given the option to upgrade two different features – the number of instances and the system memory. The first one refers to the number of the Internet sites that can use the Memcached caching system at the same time, so if you need it for several Internet sites, you can order a handful of instances. The second one has to do with the maximum amount of memory that the system will be permitted to use in order to cache content, so for lots of websites (or for one busy site), you’d better get more memory for better results. The memory is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be ordered every time you need it. With Memcached, each script-driven website hosted on our servers will open lightning-fast.
Memcached in Dedicated Servers Hosting
You can unlock the full potential of Memcached with each dedicated server offered by our company in case you choose Hepsia as your Control Panel. A section in it is dedicated to the object caching system and you can start using Memcached for any website hosted on the dedicated machine with just several clicks. You can optimize the performance of any website, regardless of what script-based web app you rely on or how popular the site is, since the minimum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to employ is three gigabytes and this amount grows immensely with the higher-end servers. Shortly after the caching system is enabled, it will start caching information every time someone browses your site, so, once enough content has been cached, you’ll perceive the reduced load on the dedicated server and the improved overall performance of the site. The Memcached caching system is being used by plenty of sites, among them famous portals like Zynga, Wikipedia and Reddit, which proves the effectiveness of the caching system.
