APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module which caches the output code of database-driven script software applications. Dynamic PHP websites store their content within a database which is accessed whenever a visitor opens a page. The content that has to be viewed is retrieved and the code is parsed and compiled before it's delivered to the website visitor. These actions take some processing time and include reading and writing on the hosting server for every single page that is loaded. While this can't be avoided for sites with constantly changing content material, there are a lot of sites that feature the very same content on a lot of of their pages constantly - blogs, info portals, hotel and restaurant websites, etcetera. APC is very useful for this kind of sites because it caches the already compiled code and shows it whenever visitors browse the cached webpages, so the code doesn't have to be parsed and compiled all over again. Not only will this decrease the server load, but it will also increase the speed of any website several times.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Website Hosting
APC is provided with every single cloud website hosting solution that we offer and you could activate it with only a click through your Hepsia Control Panel if you'd like to use it for your web apps. A few minutes later the framework will be active and you will notice the faster loading speed of your database-driven Internet sites. Since we offer several versions of PHP that can also be selected from Hepsia, you'll even be able to to employ APC for scripts which require different versions of PHP within the same account. Our cutting-edge cloud Internet hosting platform is extremely flexible, so in case you use a different web accelerator for any Internet site and it interferes with APC, you could activate or deactivate the latter for a specific site only by using a php.ini file generated in the domain or subdomain folder.
