APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module that caches the output code of database-driven script software apps. Dynamic PHP Internet sites store their content within a database that is accessed whenever a visitor opens a page. 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 need some processing time and involve reading and writing on the server for each page which is opened. While this cannot be avoided for Internet sites with regularly changing content, there're various Internet sites which feature the very same content on many of their webpages at all times - blogs, info portals, hotel and restaurant sites, etcetera. APC is exceptionally useful for this type of Internet sites since it caches the already compiled code and shows it every time visitors browse the cached webpages, so the code doesn't have to be parsed and compiled again. This will not only reduce the server load, but it will also boost the speed of any site several times.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Shared Website Hosting
You can use APC with every single shared website hosting package that we offer because it's already installed on our advanced cloud platform and activating it will take you just a few clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. As our system is extremely flexible, you'll be able to run Internet sites with various system requirements and decide whether they will work with APC or not. For instance, you can enable APC only for a single release of PHP or you can do the latter for several of the releases running on our platform. You may also choose if all sites working with a certain PHP version will use APC or if the latter will be active just for selected sites and not for all Internet sites in the website hosting account. The last option is useful when you would like to employ a different web accelerator for some of your sites. These customizations are done without difficulty by using a php.ini file in selected domain or subdomain folders.
