APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module which caches the output code of database-driven script applications. Dynamic PHP websites hold their content in a database that is accessed whenever a visitor loads a page. The content which should be displayed is retrieved and the code is parsed and compiled before it's delivered to the site visitor. These actions take some processing time and involve reading and writing on the server for every single page that is loaded. While this can't be avoided for sites with constantly changing content material, there're many sites which have the same content on many of their pages all of the time - blogs, info portals, hotel and restaurant Internet sites, etc. APC is exceptionally useful for such websites because it caches the already compiled code and displays it each time visitors browse the cached webpages, so the code does not need to be parsed and compiled all over again. This will not only decrease the server load, but it will also raise the speed of any site many times.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Hosting
APC is provided with every single hosting solution that we offer and you can enable it with only a click from your Hepsia Control Panel if you wish to use it for your applications. A few minutes later the framework will be working and you'll be able to take advantage of the quicker loading speed of your database-driven sites. As we offer several releases of PHP that can also be selected from Hepsia, you will even be able to employ APC for scripts which require different versions of PHP inside the very same account. Our state-of-the-art cloud web hosting platform is very flexible, so if you use some other web accelerator for any website and it interferes with APC, you will be able to activate or deactivate the latter for a certain site only by using a php.ini file generated in the domain or subdomain folder.
