APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module that caches the output code of database-driven script apps. Dynamic PHP websites save their content inside a database that is accessed whenever a visitor opens a webpage. The content that should be displayed is retrieved and the code is parsed and compiled before it is delivered to the visitor. These actions take some processing time and include reading and writing on the web server for each and every page which is loaded. While this cannot be avoided for sites with regularly changing content material, there are many websites that feature the very same content on a number of of their pages at all times - blogs, informational portals, hotel and restaurant websites, etcetera. APC is extremely useful for this type of Internet sites since it caches the previously compiled code and displays it whenever visitors browse the cached webpages, so the code doesn't need to be parsed and compiled again. Not only will this lower the server load, but it'll also boost the speed of any site several times.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Shared Web Hosting
APC is pre-installed on our cutting-edge cloud platform, therefore you'll be able to use it for your applications regardless of the shared web hosting solution that you choose when you join us. The module can be enabled from your Hepsia internet hosting Control Panel which is used to take care of the shared accounts and just a couple of minutes later it'll boost your sites as it will start caching their code. In case you wish to run sites with various system requirements or employ different web accelerators for some of them, you will be able to customize the software environment by putting a php.ini file in the preferred domain folder. This way, you could enable or disable APC not only for a particular site without affecting the remaining sites in the account, but also for a specific version of PHP because our platform supports multiple versions simultaneously.
