Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache servers which is used to cache the output code of script applications. It is very efficient for scripts with large source code and can speed up such a site up to three times. PHP sites are dynamic and any time a user accesses some webpage, the script connects to a database in order to get some content, after that the code is parsed and compiled before it is shown to the visitor. If the output code doesn't change however, that's the case with sites that display the very same content all the time, such actions trigger excessive 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 have to be accessed and the code does not have to be parsed and compiled again and again, which consequently lowers the site loading time. The module could be extremely useful for informational websites, blogs, portfolios, and many others.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Shared Web Hosting
APC is pre-installed on our cutting-edge cloud platform, which means that you will be able to use it for your web applications irrespective of the shared web hosting package that you choose when you sign up. The module can be activated from the Hepsia internet hosting Control Panel that is used to control the shared accounts and only a few minutes later it'll boost your websites as it'll begin caching their program code. If you need to run websites with various system requirements or use different web accelerators for any of them, you can customize the software environment by placing a php.ini file in the desired domain folder. In this way, you can enable or disable APC not only for a certain website without affecting the remaining Internet sites in the account, but also for a certain version of PHP because our platform is compatible with multiple versions simultaneously.
