APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module which caches the output code of database-driven script software applications. Dynamic PHP websites keep their content within a database that is accessed whenever a visitor loads a page. The content which needs to be viewed is gathered and the code is parsed and compiled before it is delivered to the visitor. These actions need some processing time and require reading and writing on the server for every single page that is accessed. While this cannot be avoided for Internet sites with regularly changing content material, there are numerous Internet sites which have the exact same content on a lot of of their webpages constantly - blogs, informational portals, hotel and restaurant websites, etc. APC is extremely useful for this kind of Internet sites since it caches the already compiled code and shows it every time visitors browse the cached webpages, so the code doesn't have to be parsed and compiled again. This will not only greatly reduce the server load, but it will also boost the speed of any site a few times.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Web Hosting
APC is pre-installed on our outstanding cloud platform, so you'll be able to use it for your applications irrespective of the web hosting solution that you choose when you sign up. The module can be activated through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel which is used to take care of the shared accounts and only a few minutes later it'll boost your sites because it will start caching their code. If you would like to run sites with different system requirements or employ specific web accelerators for some of them, you could customize the software environment by putting a php.ini file in the preferred domain folder. Thus, you can enable or disable APC not only for a particular site without affecting the other sites in the account, but also for a particular version of PHP as our platform is compatible with multiple versions at the same time.
