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 within a database which is accessed whenever a visitor opens a webpage. The content that needs to be displayed is gathered and the code is parsed and compiled prior to it being delivered to the website visitor. These actions take some processing time and require reading and writing on the server for each and every page that is accessed. While this cannot be avoided for Internet sites with regularly changing content material, there're many Internet sites that feature the same content on many of their pages all the time - blogs, info portals, hotel and restaurant Internet sites, and many others. APC is really useful for this kind of websites since it caches the previously compiled code and shows it whenever visitors browse the cached pages, so the code does not need to be parsed and compiled all over again. This will not only lower the server load, but it will also raise the speed of any Internet site many times.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Hosting
APC is provided with every single hosting plan that we offer and you can activate it with only a click from your Hepsia Control Panel if you would like to use it for your web apps. Several minutes later the framework will be active and you will experience the faster loading speed of your database-driven websites. Since we offer several releases of PHP that can also be selected through Hepsia, you will even be able to employ APC for scripts which need different versions of PHP within the same account. Our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform is extremely adaptable, so if you use another web accelerator for any Internet site and it disrupts APC, you will be able to activate or deactivate the latter for a specific site only by using a php.ini file generated in the domain or subdomain folder.
