Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache servers which is employed to cache the output code of script applications. It is very useful for scripts with large source code and can speed up such a website up to 3 times. PHP sites are dynamic and any time a website visitor opens a web page, the script hooks up to a database in order to get some content, after that the code is parsed and compiled before it's shown to the website visitor. In case the output code doesn't change however, that is the case with Internet sites which show the exact same content all the time, such actions trigger unnecessary reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the previously compiled program code and delivers it every time visitors browse a site, so the database doesn't have to be accessed and the code does not have to be parsed and compiled again and again, which in turn lowers the site loading time. The module could be extremely efficient for informational Internet sites, blogs, portfolios, and many others.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Shared Hosting
APC is available with every single shared hosting plan that we offer and you could enable it with just a click through your Hepsia Control Panel if you would like to use it for your web applications. A couple of minutes later the framework will be active and you'll notice the considerably faster loading speed of your database-driven Internet sites. Since we offer different releases of PHP which could also be selected through Hepsia, you will even be able to use APC for scripts that need different versions of PHP in the very same account. Our next generation cloud hosting platform is extremely adaptable, so in case you use an alternative web accelerator for any Internet site and it interferes with APC, you could activate or deactivate the latter for a selected site only by using a php.ini file created in the domain or subdomain folder.
