APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module which caches the output code of database-driven script software applications. Dynamic PHP websites keep their content in a database which is accessed whenever a visitor opens a webpage. The content that needs to be displayed is gathered and the code is parsed and compiled before it's delivered to the visitor. All of these actions take some processing time and include reading and writing on the server for each and every page which is loaded. While this cannot be avoided for websites with regularly changing content material, there are various sites which present the very same content on many of their pages at all times - blogs, informational portals, hotel and restaurant sites, etcetera. APC is exceptionally useful for this kind of websites because it caches the previously compiled code and shows it when visitors browse the cached webpages, so the code doesn't have to be parsed and compiled all over again. Not only will this reduce the server load, but it'll also increase the speed of any site a few times.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Shared Hosting
APC is available with every single shared hosting plan that we offer and you could activate it with only a click from your Hepsia Control Panel if you wish to use it for your web applications. Several minutes later the framework will be active and you will be able to take advantage of the faster loading speed of your database-driven websites. Since we provide several releases of PHP which could also be selected from Hepsia, you will even be able to employ APC for scripts which require different versions of PHP in the same account. Our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform is very adaptable, so in case you use a different web accelerator for any website and it interferes with APC, you will be able to activate or deactivate the aforementioned for a specific site only by using a php.ini file generated in the domain or subdomain folder.
