Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache web servers which is used to cache the output code of script apps. It is very useful for scripts with large source code and will accelerate such a site up to 3 times. PHP sites are dynamic and each time a user opens a webpage, the script links to a database in order to retrieve some content, then the code is parsed and compiled prior to it being displayed to the website visitor. If the output code doesn't change however, that is the case with Internet sites which show identical content at all times, these actions trigger unnecessary reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the already compiled code and delivers it whenever visitors browse a site, so the database doesn't have to be accessed and the code does not have to be parsed and compiled repeatedly, which consequently reduces the Internet site loading time. The module could be very efficient for informational Internet sites, blogs, portfolios, and many others.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Web Hosting
APC is pre-installed on our outstanding cloud platform, therefore you can use it for your web applications whatever the cloud web hosting solution that you pick when you join us. The module can be enabled from your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel that is used to handle the shared accounts and just several minutes later it will boost your websites since it will start caching their code. In case you would like to run websites with various system requirements or employ specific web accelerators for some of them, you'll be able to customize the software environment by putting a php.ini file in the desired domain folder. In this way, you can enable or disable APC not only for a particular Internet site without affecting the remaining websites in the account, but also for a particular version of PHP as our platform is compatible with multiple versions at the same time.
