APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module that caches the output code of database-driven script apps. Dynamic PHP Internet sites store their content inside a database that is accessed whenever a visitor loads a webpage. The content which has to be shown is retrieved and the code is parsed and compiled before it is delivered to the website visitor. These actions take some processing time and require reading and writing on the web server for every single page which is loaded. While this can't be avoided for websites with regularly changing content, there are many sites that have the very same content on many of their pages at all times - blogs, info portals, hotel and restaurant Internet sites, etc. APC is really useful for this kind of sites since it caches the previously compiled code and shows it every time visitors browse the cached webpages, so the code does not have to be parsed and compiled all over again. This will not only lower the server load, but it'll also increase the speed of any website many times.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Web Hosting
APC is provided with every single cloud web hosting package that we offer and you can activate it with just a click from your Hepsia Control Panel if you would like to use it for your web apps. A couple of minutes later the framework will be active and you will experience the considerably quicker loading speed of your database-driven Internet sites. As we offer different versions of PHP which could also be selected through Hepsia, you'll even be able to to use APC for scripts that require different versions of PHP inside the very same account. Our next generation cloud hosting platform is extremely adaptable, so if you use some other web accelerator for any website and it disturbs APC, you will be able to activate or deactivate the latter for a specific site only by using a php.ini file created in the domain or subdomain folder.
