APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module which caches the output code of database-driven script software applications. Dynamic PHP Internet sites save their content within a database which is accessed whenever a visitor opens a page. The content which needs to be displayed is gathered and the code is parsed and compiled prior to it being delivered to the website visitor. All these actions take some processing time and include reading and writing on the web server for each page which is opened. While this can't be avoided for websites with regularly changing content, there are a lot of sites that present the very same content on a number of of their pages all of the time - blogs, informational portals, hotel and restaurant Internet sites, etc. APC is very useful for this kind of websites because it caches the previously compiled code and displays it whenever visitors browse the cached pages, so the code doesn't need to be parsed and compiled repeatedly. This will not only greatly reduce the server load, but it'll also raise the speed of any Internet site many times.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Web Hosting
APC is provided with each cloud web hosting plan that we offer and you can enable it with only a click from your Hepsia Control Panel if you wish to use it for your web apps. A couple of minutes later the framework will be active and you'll experience the considerably faster loading speed of your database-driven websites. Since we provide different releases of PHP that could also be selected through Hepsia, you will even be able to employ APC for scripts that need different versions of PHP inside the very same account. Our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform is very adaptable, so if you use a different web accelerator for any website and it disturbs APC, you could activate or deactivate the latter for a selected site only by using a php.ini file generated in the domain or subdomain folder.
