Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache servers which is used to cache the output code of script applications. It is very useful for scripts with large source code and could boost such a site up to three times. PHP websites are dynamic and each time a website visitor opens a webpage, the script hooks up to a database to retrieve some content, after that the code is parsed and compiled before it's shown to the guest. If the output code doesn't change however, that's the case with sites that display the exact same content at all times, these actions result in needless reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the previously compiled program code and delivers it whenever visitors browse a site, so the database doesn't have to be accessed and the code does not have to be parsed and compiled repeatedly, which consequently lowers the Internet site loading time. The module could be really helpful for informational websites, blogs, portfolios, and many others.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Website Hosting

APC is pre-installed on our next generation cloud platform, therefore you'll be able to use it for your web applications regardless of the cloud website hosting solution that you pick when you sign up. The module can be enabled from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is used to handle the shared accounts and only several minutes later it will boost your websites since it'll begin caching their code. If you wish to run sites with different system requirements or employ specific web accelerators for some of them, you'll be able to customize the software environment by placing a php.ini file in the preferred domain folder. This way, you can enable or disable APC not just for a specific site without affecting the other Internet sites in the account, but also for a specific version of PHP because our platform supports multiple versions simultaneously.
