Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache servers which is used to cache the output code of script apps. It is very efficient for scripts with large source code and could accelerate such an Internet site up to three times. PHP websites are dynamic and every time a website visitor opens some page, the script links to a database to get some content, then the code is parsed and compiled before it's shown to the website visitor. If the output code does not change however, that's the case with websites which display the same content all of the time, these actions trigger excessive reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the already compiled code and delivers it whenever visitors browse a site, so the database doesn't have to be accessed and the code does not need to be parsed and compiled repeatedly, that consequently lowers the Internet site loading time. The module can be very efficient for informational sites, blogs, portfolios, and so on.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Shared Website Hosting
APC is provided with each and every shared website hosting package that we offer and you could enable it with only a click through your Hepsia Control Panel if you wish to use it for your web apps. Several minutes later the framework will be working and you'll be able to take advantage of the faster loading speed of your database-driven Internet sites. As we provide several versions of PHP which could also be selected from Hepsia, you will even be able to use APC for scripts which require different versions of PHP in the same account. Our state-of-the-art cloud Internet hosting platform is extremely flexible, so in case you use some other web accelerator for any website and it disturbs APC, you could activate or deactivate the aforementioned for a specific site only by using a php.ini file generated in the domain or subdomain folder.
