With its remarkable and continued services throughout the years as a web hosting company, Siteground has reached further than ever in faster content delivery, website capabilities of handling millions of requests on a per minute basis, and powerful & efficient technology to give its users the right kind of accessibility and quality each customer deserves. A new addition to the Siteground team is the Siteground SuperCacher. The SuperCacher is an optimization tool developed by Siteground exclusively for its customers. It focuses on boosting website loading speed and significantly increasing the number of hits a website can handle.
SuperCacher uses a caching system to aid in the optimization process. Specifically, it uses 4 different caching options including an alternative for the entire caching system. To learn more about these caching options, I’ll explain how each option works.
This is a much more complex system than the Static cache system. It focuses on dynamic content, meaning, the whole web pages are cached. For websites such as WordPress, Joomla, or Drupal, this is a perfect optimization tool for the dynamic content found in each of these websites. With the entire pages/articles of your website stored in the RAM server memory, only the first visitor will have to load the entire content of the database. The rest that follow will have access directly from the RAM server, which is significantly faster.
The Memchache system focuses highly on query databases making it perfect for websites such as Facebook, YouTube, Wikipedia, etc. These websites receive a continually high number of visitors daily. And with the number of inputs in each website, it generates a lot of memory and space. One visitor may type several queries on the search bar followed by a succeeding amount of visitors. What Memcache does is, it stores all these query databases in the RAM server that the next time the same query is needed, this data will be taken directly from the RAM instead of the website’s database to avoid slower processing time.
The HHVM option is accessible only for Dedicated or Cloud Hosting accounts. HHVM uses Just-in-time (JIT) approach to further improve the speed of processing PHP files. How the JIT approach works is by reading the byte codes in many sections and compiles all of these dynamically into a machine language that allows a program to run faster. Instead of using a PHP version to run your files, HHVM processes your PHP files at twice the speed.

How To Enable SuperCacher
Now that you’ve understood how each cache system works, I’m sure there’s one particular cache system you’re interested in using for your website. To enable the SuperCacher, simply click on the SuperCacher icon on your cPanel and a screen will pop up showing the available caching options as mentioned above. Simply choose which caching option to use since they will be separated in different tabs. Once you’ve chosen the desired cache system, under that specific tab is an On/Off button you can freely choose to decide when you want to use it.
Siteground has truly surpassed the evolution of a web hosting company in several different ways that make it a spectacular company of trust, reliability, and performance. With such a wide range of caching options designed for its unique and specific purposes, SuperCacher invites its users to the next step of technological innovation and optimization.
