APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module that caches the output code of database-driven script apps. Dynamic PHP Internet sites keep their content in a database which is accessed whenever a visitor opens a page. The content that needs to be viewed is retrieved and the code is parsed and compiled prior to it being delivered to the website visitor. All these actions need some processing time and require reading and writing on the hosting server for each and every page which is loaded. While this cannot be avoided for sites with constantly changing content, there're numerous Internet sites that offer the very same content on many of their webpages at all times - blogs, info portals, hotel and restaurant websites, etcetera. APC is really useful for such websites as it caches the already compiled code and displays it when visitors browse the cached webpages, so the code doesn't need to be parsed and compiled repeatedly. Not only will this greatly reduce the server load, but it will also boost the speed of any Internet site many times.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Web Hosting
APC is provided with each web hosting plan that we offer and you could enable it with just a click from your Hepsia Control Panel if you wish to use it for your applications. Several minutes later the framework will be active and you'll be able to take advantage of the considerably faster loading speed of your database-driven websites. Since we provide several versions of PHP that could also be selected through Hepsia, you'll even be able to to use APC for scripts which need different versions of PHP inside the very same account. Our next generation cloud web hosting platform is very flexible, so if you use some other web accelerator for any website and it disrupts APC, you could activate or deactivate the latter for a selected site only by using a php.ini file created in the domain or subdomain folder.
