Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache servers which is used to cache the output code of script apps. It is very efficient for scripts with large source code and could speed up such a website as much as three times. PHP websites are dynamic and any time a visitor opens a web page, the script links to a database to get some content, after that the code is parsed and compiled before it is displayed to the visitor. If the output code doesn't change however, that's the case with websites that show the same content at all times, such actions trigger excessive reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the previously compiled program code and delivers it each time visitors browse a website, so the database doesn't need to be accessed and the program code doesn't need to be parsed and compiled continuously, that in turn lowers the Internet site loading time. The module can be very effective for informational websites, blogs, portfolios, and so on.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Website Hosting
APC is pre-installed on our leading-edge cloud platform, therefore you'll be able to use it for your applications irrespective of the cloud website hosting solution that you select when you sign up. The module can be enabled from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is used to manage the shared accounts and just a few minutes later it'll speed up your Internet sites as it'll begin caching their code. In case you want to run Internet sites with different system requirements or take advantage of different web accelerators for any of them, you will be able to customize the software environment by placing a php.ini file inside the preferred domain folder. This way, you could enable or disable APC not only for a certain website without affecting the other Internet sites in the account, but also for a particular version of PHP because our platform is compatible with multiple versions simultaneously.
