APC, which stands for Alternative PHP Cache, is a framework used for caching the compiled source code of a given script application, which could speed up a database-driven Internet site several times. Each time a PHP web page is opened, the script pulls the content that needs to be displayed from a database, parses and compiles the program code, then the result is shown to the site visitor. While this is necessary for sites with routinely changing content, it's a total waste of processing time and resources for a website which does not change, such as an informational portal that displays the very same content all the time. As soon as the pages for such an Internet site are compiled, APC caches them and delivers them each time a visitor loads them. Since this saves the time to collect content from the database and to parse and compile the program code, your website will load considerably quicker. APC is very useful particularly for scripts with large source code.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Hosting
APC is pre-installed on our cutting-edge cloud platform, which means that you'll be able to use it for your applications irrespective of the cloud hosting package that you pick when you sign up. The module can be activated from your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel which is used to handle the shared accounts and only a couple of minutes later it will boost your websites since it'll begin caching their code. In case you wish to run Internet sites with various system requirements or take advantage of specific web accelerators for some of them, you'll be able to customize the software environment by putting a php.ini file inside the desired domain folder. In this way, you could enable or disable APC not only for a particular website without affecting the remaining Internet sites in the account, but also for a particular version of PHP as our platform is compatible with multiple versions at the same time.
