Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache servers that is employed to cache the output code of script applications. It is very efficient for scripts with large source code and will boost such an Internet site as much as 3 times. PHP websites are dynamic and whenever a website visitor accesses some page, the script connects to a database to get some content, then the code is parsed and compiled before it's shown to the website visitor. If the output code does not change however, that's the case with sites that show the very same content all the time, these actions trigger unneeded reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the already compiled program code and delivers it whenever visitors browse a website, so the database doesn't have to be accessed and the code doesn't have to be parsed and compiled repeatedly, which in turn reduces the Internet site loading time. The module could be extremely helpful for informational Internet sites, blogs, portfolios, and so on.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Hosting
APC is pre-installed on our next generation cloud platform, so you'll be able to use it for your applications irrespective of the cloud hosting package that you pick when you join us. The module can be activated through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is used to control the shared accounts and only a couple of minutes later it'll boost your sites as it will begin caching their program code. If you would like to run sites with different system requirements or use different web accelerators for some of them, you can customize the software environment by putting a php.ini file inside the desired domain folder. Thus, you could enable or disable APC not only for a specific site without affecting the other sites in the account, but also for a specific version of PHP since our platform supports multiple versions simultaneously.
