Redis Web Hosting for WordPress websites
Redis is an in memory data store that can enhance the performance and scalability of your WordPress. Using Redis in combination with WordPress can provide several benefits to busy and popular websites.
- Faster Page Load Times: Redis can be used as an object cache for WordPress, storing frequently accessed data (such as database queries, rendered pages, or frequently used PHP objects) in memory. This reduces the need to fetch data from the database, resulting in faster page load times.
- Improved User Experience: Following on from faster page load times and reduced server load translate to a better user experience. Visitors are more likely to stay engaged with your site and convert to customers if it loads quickly and reliably.
- Reduced Database Load: WordPress relies heavily on its database to store and retrieve content, settings, and user data. Redis offloads some of this data in turn reducing the load on the database server, which can improve overall site performance and reduce the risk of potential database issues.
- Persistent Object Caching: Redis can be configured to persist cached data to disk, allowing you to maintain cache data even if you need to restart the Redis server.
- Flexible Cache Invalidation: Redis provides various mechanisms to set expiration times for cached data or to manually invalidate specific cache entries. This flexibility allows you to control when and how cached data is refreshed, ensuring that users always see up to date content.
Redis with WordPress can greatly enhance the performance and user experience of your website, particularly if you expect high traffic or have complex caching needs. All of Purely.Website’s web hosting packages support the use of Redis and start from £1 per month.
