APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module which caches the output code of database-driven script applications. Dynamic PHP Internet sites store their content inside a database which is accessed whenever a visitor loads a webpage. The content that should be displayed is retrieved and the code is parsed and compiled prior to it being delivered to the visitor. All of these actions need some processing time and include reading and writing on the web server for each page which is accessed. While this can't be avoided for Internet sites with regularly changing content material, there're a lot of websites which feature the very same content on a lot of of their webpages all of the time - blogs, informational portals, hotel and restaurant sites, etc. APC is quite useful for such websites as it caches the previously compiled code and shows it every time visitors browse the cached webpages, so the code doesn't need to be parsed and compiled all over again. This will not only decrease the server load, but it will also boost the speed of any website a few times.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Shared Web Hosting
APC is provided with each and every shared web hosting solution that we offer and you could enable it with only a click from your Hepsia Control Panel if you'd like to use it for your web applications. A few minutes later the framework will be active and you'll notice the faster loading speed of your database-driven sites. As we offer several releases of PHP which could also be selected from Hepsia, you'll even be able to to use APC for scripts that need different versions of PHP in the same account. Our leading-edge cloud hosting platform is very flexible, so if you use some other web accelerator for any Internet site and it interferes with APC, you'll be able to activate or deactivate the aforementioned for a specific site only by using a php.ini file created in the domain or subdomain folder.
