APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module that caches the output code of database-driven script software apps. Dynamic PHP Internet sites hold their content in a database which is accessed whenever a visitor opens a page. The content that needs to be viewed is gathered and the code is parsed and compiled before it's delivered to the website visitor. All of these actions need some processing time and involve reading and writing on the web server for each page which is opened. While this can't be avoided for websites with regularly changing content material, there're many websites which have the very same content on many of their webpages at all times - blogs, informational portals, hotel and restaurant websites, etcetera. APC is exceptionally useful for this kind of Internet sites because it caches the already compiled code and shows it when visitors browse the cached pages, so the code does not need to be parsed and compiled again. Not only will this minimize the server load, but it will also increase the speed of any website many times.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Shared Hosting
APC is provided with every single shared hosting package that we offer and you could activate it with only a click from your Hepsia Control Panel if you would like to use it for your web applications. A couple of minutes later the framework will be working and you'll be able to take advantage of the faster loading speed of your database-driven websites. Since we provide different releases of PHP which could also be selected from Hepsia, you will even be able to use APC for scripts which need different versions of PHP within the same account. Our state-of-the-art cloud Internet hosting platform is extremely adaptable, so if you use a different web accelerator for any website and it disturbs APC, you'll be able to activate or deactivate the aforementioned for a particular site only by using a php.ini file created in the domain or subdomain folder.
