Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache servers which is employed to cache the output code of script apps. It is very effective for scripts with large source code and will boost such an Internet site up to three times. PHP sites are dynamic and whenever a visitor opens some web page, the script connects to a database in order to get some content, after that the code is parsed and compiled before it is shown to the visitor. In case the output code does not change however, that's the case with sites which display the same content all of the time, such actions result in unneeded reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the already compiled program code and delivers it whenever visitors browse a site, so the database doesn't have to be accessed and the program code doesn't have to be parsed and compiled continuously, that consequently decreases the website loading time. The module can be extremely efficient for informational websites, blogs, portfolios, etc.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Web Hosting
You can use APC with each cloud web hosting package that we provide because it's already installed on our advanced cloud platform and enabling it will take you only a couple of clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. Since our platform is really flexible, you'll be able to run websites with different system requirements and decide if they will use APC or not. For instance, you can activate APC only for one version of PHP or you can do this for several of the versions running on the platform. You can also choose if all websites working with a specific PHP version will use APC or whether the latter will be active just for selected websites and not for all sites in the hosting account. The aforementioned option is useful when you would like to employ a different web accelerator for several of your websites. These customizations are done without difficulty by using a php.ini file in selected domain or subdomain folders.
