Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache servers that is employed to cache the output code of script apps. It is very efficient for scripts with large source code and will boost such a site as much as three times. PHP sites are dynamic and whenever a visitor opens a page, the script connects to a database in order to get some content, after that the code is parsed and compiled prior to it being displayed to the guest. In case the output code doesn't change however, that's the case with websites that display the exact same content all of the time, such actions result in needless reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the already compiled code and delivers it any time visitors browse an Internet site, so the database doesn't need to be accessed and the code does not have to be parsed and compiled repeatedly, that in turn minimizes the Internet site loading time. The module can be extremely useful for informational Internet sites, blogs, portfolios, and many others.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Hosting
You can use APC with each cloud hosting plan that we provide because it is already installed on our advanced cloud platform and enabling it will take you only a few clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. As our platform is extremely flexible, you can run websites with various requirements and decide if they will work with APC or not. For example, you can allow APC only for one release of PHP or you can do this for several of the versions that run on our platform. You can also decide if all websites using a given PHP version will use APC or if the latter will be active only for selected websites and not for all Internet sites in the hosting account. The aforementioned option is useful if you need to employ a different web accelerator for several of your Internet sites. These customizations are carried out with ease through a php.ini file in selected domain or subdomain folders.
