Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache web servers that is employed to cache the output code of script apps. It is very efficient for scripts with large source code and could boost such an Internet site up to three times. PHP websites are dynamic and each time a visitor opens a page, the script connects to a database to get some content, then the code is parsed and compiled before it is shown to the site visitor. In case the output code does not change however, that is the case with sites which show the exact same content all of the time, such actions trigger unnecessary reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the previously compiled code and delivers it whenever visitors browse an Internet site, so the database doesn't have to be accessed and the program code doesn't have to be parsed and compiled continuously, that in turn lowers the website loading time. The module could be very effective for informational Internet sites, blogs, portfolios, and so on.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Hosting
APC is pre-installed on our state-of-the-art cloud platform, therefore you'll be able to use it for your applications regardless of the hosting package that you select when you sign up. The module can be activated from your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel that is used to manage the shared accounts and just several minutes later it'll speed up your Internet sites since it'll start caching their code. In case you would like to run sites with various system requirements or take advantage of different web accelerators for some of them, you could customize the software environment by placing a php.ini file inside the preferred domain folder. Thus, you could enable or disable APC not just for a specific website without affecting the remaining Internet sites in the account, but also for a particular version of PHP since our platform supports multiple versions at the same time.
