Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache web servers that is employed to cache the output code of script apps. It is very useful for scripts with large source code and will speed up such an Internet site as much as three times. PHP websites are dynamic and whenever a visitor opens some webpage, the script links to a database in order to get some content, and then the code is parsed and compiled before it is shown to the visitor. If the output code does not change however, that is the case with sites that display the same content at all times, these actions result in unneeded reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the already compiled code and delivers it whenever visitors browse an Internet site, so the database doesn't have to be accessed and the code does not need to be parsed and compiled repeatedly, that consequently minimizes the site loading time. The module can be rather effective for informational Internet sites, blogs, portfolios, and so on.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Website Hosting

APC is pre-installed on our next generation cloud platform, so you can use it for your web applications whatever the cloud website hosting package that you choose when you register. The module can be enabled from your Hepsia internet hosting Control Panel that is used to control the shared accounts and just a few minutes later it will speed up your sites since it will start caching their program code. In case you want to run sites with different system requirements or use specific web accelerators for some of them, you can customize the software environment by placing a php.ini file in the preferred domain folder. Thus, you could enable or disable APC not just for a particular Internet site without affecting the other websites in the account, but also for a particular version of PHP because our platform is compatible with multiple versions simultaneously.
