Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache web servers that is used to cache the output code of script apps. It is very efficient for scripts with large source code and could speed up such a website up to three times. PHP sites are dynamic and every time a user opens some web page, the script connects to a database in order to retrieve some content, after that the code is parsed and compiled before it's displayed to the website visitor. In case the output code does not change however, that's the case with websites which show identical content at all times, such actions trigger needless reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the already compiled program code and delivers it every time visitors browse an Internet site, so the database doesn't have to be accessed and the code doesn't have to be parsed and compiled repeatedly, which in turn decreases the site loading time. The module could be extremely helpful for informational Internet sites, blogs, portfolios, and so on.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Shared Website Hosting

APC is pre-installed on our next generation cloud platform, which means that you'll be able to use it for your web applications regardless of the shared website hosting plan that you pick when you join us. The module can be enabled from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel which is used to take care of the shared accounts and just a few minutes later it will speed up your Internet sites because it'll begin caching their program code. In case you want to run websites with different system requirements or employ specific web accelerators for any of them, you can customize the software environment by placing a php.ini file in the desired domain folder. This way, you could enable or disable APC not just for a specific site without affecting the other Internet sites in the account, but also for a particular version of PHP since our platform is compatible with multiple versions simultaneously.
