APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module which caches the output code of database-driven script apps. Dynamic PHP Internet sites hold their content inside a database that is accessed whenever a visitor loads a webpage. The content which needs to be displayed is retrieved and the code is parsed and compiled before it's delivered to the visitor. All these actions need some processing time and involve reading and writing on the server for every single page which is accessed. While this can't be avoided for Internet sites with constantly changing content material, there are numerous Internet sites which feature the very same content on many of their pages all the time - blogs, informational portals, hotel and restaurant Internet sites, etc. APC is really useful for this kind of Internet sites since it caches the already compiled code and displays it whenever visitors browse the cached webpages, so the code doesn't need to be parsed and compiled repeatedly. Not only will this lower the server load, but it'll also increase the speed of any website several times.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Web Hosting

APC is provided with each and every web hosting plan that we offer and you can enable it with just a click from your Hepsia Control Panel if you'd like to use it for your web apps. Several minutes later the framework will be active and you'll be able to take advantage of the faster loading speed of your database-driven sites. As we offer different releases of PHP that can also be selected from Hepsia, you'll even be able to to employ APC for scripts that require different versions of PHP within the very same account. Our leading-edge cloud Internet hosting platform is very flexible, so in case you use another web accelerator for any website and it disrupts APC, you could activate or deactivate the latter for a selected site only by using a php.ini file generated in the domain or subdomain folder.
