Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache web servers that is employed to cache the output code of script applications. It is very efficient for scripts with large source code and will boost such a site up to three times. PHP websites are dynamic and whenever a website visitor accesses some web page, the script connects to a database to retrieve some content, after that the code is parsed and compiled before it is displayed to the guest. If the output code does not change however, that is the case with Internet sites that show identical content all of the time, such actions result in unneeded reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the already compiled code and delivers it every time visitors browse a website, so the database doesn't need to be accessed and the code doesn't have to be parsed and compiled again and again, that in turn lowers the website loading time. The module could be really useful for informational Internet sites, blogs, portfolios, and many others.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Web Hosting
You can use APC with each and every cloud web hosting package that we offer since it is already present on our advanced cloud platform and activating it will take you just a few clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. As our system is extremely flexible, you will be able to run sites with different requirements and decide whether they will use APC or not. For example, you can enable APC only for one release of PHP or you can do the latter for several of the versions running on the platform. It's also possible to select if all websites working with a specific PHP version will use APC or if the latter will be active just for selected sites and not for all websites in the website hosting account. The last option is useful when you'd like to employ a different web accelerator for several of your websites. These customizations are performed without difficulty through a php.ini file in selected domain or subdomain folders.
