Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache servers that is used to cache the output code of script apps. It is very efficient for scripts with large source code and could boost such a site as much as three times. PHP sites are dynamic and any time a user accesses some page, the script hooks up to a database in order to get some content, and then the code is parsed and compiled prior to it being displayed to the website visitor. In case the output code does not change however, that is the case with websites which display the exact same content all of the time, these actions result in unneeded reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the already compiled code and delivers it any 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, that consequently minimizes the Internet site loading time. The module could be extremely helpful for informational websites, blogs, portfolios, and so on.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Web Hosting

APC is pre-installed on our advanced cloud platform, therefore you can use it for your web applications irrespective of the cloud web hosting plan that you pick when you sign up. The module can be enabled from your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel that is used to handle the shared accounts and just a few minutes later it'll speed up your websites because it will start caching their code. If you wish to run websites with various system requirements or take advantage of 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 could enable or disable APC not just for a particular website without affecting the remaining Internet sites in the account, but also for a particular version of PHP since our platform supports multiple versions at the same time.
