How to Speed up Your Website With Redis Caching

Redis is an open-source tool - a widely used choice for data management and storage through additional caching, thanks to which you can increase the performance of your website.

Redis supports many different types of data structures (Strings, Hashes, Lists, Sets, etc.).

WordPress recently started recommending the use of the so-called "object cache". And Redis offers exactly that.

We at Jump Hosting offer our customers who use the services - Shared Hosting, WordPress Hosting, and eShop Hosting - the possibility to use Redis in the cPanel via the Redis cache manager by Hosting Jump menu.

To use this function, you must log in to your cPanel account. There you will see the function in the Tools section - developed by Jump:

Redis Cache Manager by Jump.BG

And here you will find practical tips, ideas and instructions on how to use Redis with the help of the functions we have developed in cPanel:

How to Start or Stop Redis

Redis is not started by default and you must run through this procedure. This will also generate the necessary data for later use. When you open the cPanel menu, you will see this text:

To activate Redis via your cPanel account in Jump.BG

You must press the "Activate" button and wait about 1-2 minutes for the instance to start.

Activating Redis in the PHP module

Also, check whether the PHP module "Redis" itself is activated in cPanel -> Select PHP Version/Select PHP Version “for the PHP version you are using:

Redis Integration Into the Website

As soon as the process is active, you must integrate Redis caching into the website. To do this, you need to enter data that you can see in the Redis module in the cPanel:

As you can see on the screenshot, this also shows how many MB of memory the instance is using.

Empty Redis Cache

It is always recommended to do this from the website, but we have made it possible to do this from the cPanel as well. All you have to do is click on the "Empty cache" button in the cPanel menu:

Deactivating a Redis Instance

A Redis instance can be deactivated again via the Redis menu in the cPanel. To stop the Redis instance, you must click on the "Deactivate" button.

How to Use Redis on Multiple Sites in One Hosting Account

The Redis instance in your hosting account is shared by all the websites it contains. If you use it for more than one website, you need to set different database numbers (from 1 to 15). This will prevent the cache of one of your websites from being displayed for another website.

We hope that the information we have provided will be useful to you and help you to increase the loading speed of your website and thus improve the user experience, which is becoming an increasingly important factor in search engine rankings and user retention.

When you use Redis in your hosting account, you get a fast and powerful tool for working with data that can significantly improve your online project.
