APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module that caches the output code of database-driven script software apps. Dynamic PHP websites keep their content in a database which is accessed whenever a visitor opens a webpage. The content which should be viewed is retrieved and the code is parsed and compiled before it is delivered to the visitor. All of these actions take some processing time and include reading and writing on the web server for each page which is accessed. While this can't be avoided for websites with constantly changing content, there are various websites that have the exact same content on a number of of their pages constantly - blogs, informational portals, hotel and restaurant Internet sites, etc. APC is really useful for this kind of Internet sites since it caches the already compiled code and displays it whenever visitors browse the cached pages, so the code does not need to be parsed and compiled again. This will not only decrease the server load, but it will also boost the speed of any site several times.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Shared Hosting
APC is available with every single shared hosting package that we offer and you could activate it with just a click from your Hepsia Control Panel if you want to use it for your web applications. Several minutes later the framework will be working and you'll experience the considerably quicker loading speed of your database-driven Internet sites. As we offer several releases of PHP that can also be selected through Hepsia, you will even be able to use APC for scripts which need different versions of PHP within the very same account. Our cutting-edge cloud Internet hosting platform is very adaptable, so if you use another web accelerator for any website and it interferes with APC, you could activate or deactivate the latter for a certain site only by using a php.ini file created in the domain or subdomain folder.
