APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module that caches the output code of database-driven script apps. Dynamic PHP websites store their content in a database that is accessed whenever a visitor loads a webpage. The content which should be viewed is gathered and the code is parsed and compiled before it is delivered to the website visitor. All of these actions take some processing time and require reading and writing on the web server for each and every page that is loaded. While this can't be avoided for Internet sites with regularly changing content material, there are various sites that feature the exact same content on a lot of of their pages all the time - blogs, info portals, hotel and restaurant sites, etc. APC is extremely useful for this type of Internet sites since it caches the previously compiled code and shows it each time visitors browse the cached webpages, so the code doesn't have to be parsed and compiled repeatedly. Not only will this lower the server load, but it'll also boost the speed of any website several times.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Shared Web Hosting
APC is pre-installed on our cutting-edge cloud platform, therefore you'll be able to use it for your web applications regardless of the shared web hosting solution that you select when you sign up. The module can be activated from your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel which is used to manage the shared accounts and just a couple of minutes later it'll boost your websites as it'll start caching their code. In case you need to run Internet sites with various system requirements or take advantage of specific web accelerators for any of them, you'll be able to customize the software environment by putting a php.ini file inside the desired domain folder. Thus, you could enable or disable APC not just for a particular site without affecting the remaining websites in the account, but also for a specific version of PHP since our platform is compatible with multiple versions at the same time.
