Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache servers that is used to cache the output code of script applications. It is very useful for scripts with large source code and could speed up such a website up to three times. PHP sites are dynamic and each time a user opens some webpage, the script links to a database in order to get some content, after that the code is parsed and compiled prior to it being displayed to the guest. In case the output code does not change however, that's the case with Internet sites which display the very same content all of the time, such actions result in unneeded reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the previously compiled program code and delivers it every time visitors browse a website, so the database does not have to be accessed and the code does not need to be parsed and compiled continuously, that in turn lowers the Internet site loading time. The module could be very effective for informational sites, blogs, portfolios, and so on.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Hosting
APC is pre-installed on our leading-edge cloud platform, which means that you can use it for your applications whatever the cloud hosting package that you choose when you join us. The module can be enabled from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel which is used to manage the shared accounts and just a few minutes later it'll speed up your websites since it'll start caching their code. If you need to run websites with various system requirements or use different web accelerators for any of them, you could customize the software environment by putting a php.ini file inside the preferred domain folder. Thus, you can enable or disable APC not just for a specific Internet site without affecting the remaining websites in the account, but also for a certain version of PHP because our platform supports multiple versions simultaneously.
