Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache web servers that is employed to cache the output code of script apps. It is very effective for scripts with large source code and will boost such a site up to three times. PHP websites are dynamic and every time a user accesses some web page, the script hooks up to a database in order to get some content, then the code is parsed and compiled before it is shown to the website visitor. If the output code doesn't change however, which is the case with websites which show the exact same content all the time, these actions trigger needless reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the already compiled program code and delivers it each 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, which in turn minimizes the Internet site loading time. The module could be extremely efficient for informational Internet sites, blogs, portfolios, and so on.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Shared Website Hosting

APC is pre-installed on our cutting-edge cloud platform, which means that you can use it for your web applications whatever the shared website hosting package that you pick when you register. The module can be activated through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel which is used to manage the shared accounts and just several minutes later it will boost your sites as it'll begin caching their program code. In case you would like to run sites with various system requirements or take advantage of different web accelerators for any of them, you'll be able to customize the software environment by placing a php.ini file inside the desired domain folder. Thus, you can enable or disable APC not just for a specific website without affecting the other sites in the account, but also for a certain version of PHP as our platform supports multiple versions at the same time.
