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 effective for scripts with large source code and can speed up such a site up to three times. PHP websites are dynamic and each time a website visitor opens a webpage, the script connects to a database in order to get some content, then the code is parsed and compiled before it's displayed to the guest. If the output code doesn't change however, that's the case with Internet sites which display the very same content at all times, such actions trigger unnecessary reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the already compiled program code and delivers it each time visitors browse an Internet site, so the database doesn't need to be accessed and the code doesn't need to be parsed and compiled repeatedly, which consequently reduces the website loading time. The module can be rather helpful for informational Internet sites, blogs, portfolios, etc.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Website Hosting
APC is pre-installed on our state-of-the-art cloud platform, which means that you can use it for your applications whatever the website hosting package that you choose when you sign up. The module can be activated from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel which is used to take care of the shared accounts and just a couple of minutes later it'll speed up your Internet sites since it will start caching their code. In case you need to run websites with different system requirements or take advantage of different web accelerators for some of them, you will be able to customize the software environment by placing a php.ini file in the desired domain folder. Thus, you can enable or disable APC not just for a specific website without affecting the remaining Internet sites in the account, but also for a specific version of PHP since our platform is compatible with multiple versions at the same time.
