Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache servers which is employed to cache the output code of script applications. It is very effective for scripts with large source code and will boost such a website as much as three times. PHP websites are dynamic and any time a website visitor opens a page, the script links to a database to get some content, then the code is parsed and compiled prior to it being shown to the guest. If the output code doesn't change however, that's the case with Internet sites that show the exact same content all the time, such actions trigger unneeded reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the previously compiled code and delivers it each time visitors browse an Internet site, so the database does not have to be accessed and the code does not need to be parsed and compiled over and over again, which consequently lowers the website loading time. The module could be quite helpful for informational Internet sites, blogs, portfolios, and many others.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Shared Website Hosting
You can use APC with every single shared website hosting plan that we provide since it's already installed on our advanced cloud platform and enabling it will take you just a couple of clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. Since our platform is rather flexible, you'll be able to run sites with various system requirements and decide if they will work with APC or not. For instance, you can enable APC only for a single release of PHP or you can do this for several of the versions running on the platform. You may also decide if all Internet sites working with a specific PHP version will use APC or whether the latter will be enabled only for selected websites and not for all sites in the website hosting account. The last option is useful if you wish to employ a different web accelerator for several of your websites. These customizations are carried out effortlessly through a php.ini file in selected domain or subdomain folders.
