This is an extremely effective caching solution for dynamic websites powered by CMS like Joomla, WordPress and Magento. Dynamic Cache is NGINX-powered and its purpose is to cache resources even if they are dynamically generated.
If you are running a WordPress site, your images will be static and the content of a post/page will be stored in the database. That means when a user loads your website, WordPress will need to query the database to get the content. Dynamic Cache can solve this issue by storing the entire page when it is loaded for the first time. Next time a user loads the same page, the output will be served directly from the server’s memory which is much faster.
In order to enable this cache option, you will need to upload a plugin developed by SiteGround on your website.
This is a popular caching system that is used by many database-powered sites like YouTube, Facebook, Wikipedia and many others. It speeds up database and API calls by caching the results from the queries into the RAM.
