Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache servers that is used to cache the output code of script apps. It is very useful for scripts with large source code and will boost such a site up to three times. PHP sites are dynamic and every time a website visitor opens a page, the script hooks up to a database to retrieve some content, and then the code is parsed and compiled before it is shown to the visitor. In case the output code doesn't change however, that's the case with sites that show the very same content at all times, these actions result in unnecessary reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the previously compiled program code and delivers it each time visitors browse an Internet site, so the database doesn't need to be accessed and the program code does not have to be parsed and compiled again and again, that in turn reduces the website loading time. The module could be really effective for informational sites, blogs, portfolios, etc.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Shared Web Hosting
APC is available with every single shared web hosting plan that we offer and you could activate it with just a click through your Hepsia Control Panel if you would like to use it for your applications. A few minutes later the framework will be active and you will notice the faster loading speed of your database-driven sites. As we provide several versions of PHP that can also be selected from Hepsia, you will even be able to employ APC for scripts that require different versions of PHP inside the same account. Our next generation cloud web hosting platform is very flexible, so if you use a different web accelerator for any Internet site and it disturbs APC, you will be able to activate or deactivate the latter for a certain site only by using a php.ini file created in the domain or subdomain folder.
