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 could boost such an Internet site as much as three times. PHP websites are dynamic and whenever a visitor accesses some webpage, the script links to a database to retrieve some content, and then the code is parsed and compiled before it's displayed to the site visitor. If the output code doesn't change however, that's the case with Internet sites that display identical content all the time, such actions trigger unnecessary reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the already compiled program code and delivers it any time visitors browse an Internet site, so the database doesn't need to be accessed and the program code doesn't need to be parsed and compiled over and over again, that in turn reduces the site loading time. The module can be quite helpful for informational sites, blogs, portfolios, etcetera.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Shared Web Hosting
You can use APC with each and every shared web hosting
plan that we provide as it is already present on our advanced cloud platform and activating it will take you just a few clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. Since our platform is quite flexible, you can run Internet sites with different system requirements and decide if they will use APC or not. For example, you can enable APC only for a single version of PHP or you can do the latter for several of the releases that run on our platform. You can also select if all sites working with a certain PHP version will use APC or whether the latter will be enabled only for selected Internet sites and not for all Internet sites in the hosting account. The aforementioned option is useful if you would like to employ a different web accelerator for some of your sites. These customizations are carried out effortlessly through a php.ini file in selected domain or subdomain folders.
