APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module which caches the output code of database-driven script apps. Dynamic PHP websites hold their content in a database which is accessed whenever a visitor loads a page. The content that has to be displayed is retrieved and the code is parsed and compiled prior to it being delivered to the visitor. All of these actions need some processing time and include reading and writing on the server for each and every page that is opened. While this can't be avoided for Internet sites with regularly changing content material, there're many sites that offer the exact same content on a number of of their pages all of the time - blogs, informational portals, hotel and restaurant sites, etcetera. APC is really useful for this kind of Internet sites as it caches the previously compiled code and displays it every time visitors browse the cached pages, so the code doesn't need to be parsed and compiled again. Not only will this minimize the server load, but it'll also boost the speed of any Internet site many times.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Website Hosting
APC is pre-installed on our outstanding cloud platform, therefore you will be able to use it for your web applications irrespective of the cloud website hosting package that you pick when you join us. The module can be activated through the Hepsia internet hosting Control Panel that is used to control the shared accounts and just a few minutes later it will boost your sites as it will begin caching their code. If you want to run websites with different system requirements or employ specific web accelerators for any of them, you will be able to customize the software environment by putting a php.ini file inside the desired domain folder. Thus, you could enable or disable APC not just for a certain site without affecting the remaining Internet sites in the account, but also for a certain version of PHP since our platform is compatible with multiple versions at the same time.
