APC, which is short for Alternative PHP Cache, is a framework used for caching the compiled source code of a script application, which can boost a database-driven site several times. Each time a PHP webpage is accessed, the script pulls the website content that needs to be loaded from a database, parses and compiles the code, and the result is shown to the website visitor. While this is necessary for websites with routinely changing content, it's a waste of processing time and resources for a website which doesn't change, such as an informational portal which displays the exact same content all the time. When the webpages for such an Internet site are compiled, APC caches them and delivers them every time a visitor loads them. As this saves the time to obtain content from the database and to parse and compile the code, your website will load a lot faster. APC is really efficient in particular for scripts with massive source code.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Website Hosting
APC is pre-installed on our outstanding cloud platform, which means that you will be able to use it for your web applications regardless of the cloud website hosting solution that you choose when you register. The module can be enabled from the Hepsia internet hosting Control Panel which is used to manage the shared accounts and just several minutes later it'll boost your sites since it'll begin caching their program code. If you want to run websites with various system requirements or employ different web accelerators for any of them, you'll be able to customize the software environment by putting a php.ini file inside the preferred domain folder. Thus, you can enable or disable APC not just for a particular website without affecting the remaining Internet sites in the account, but also for a certain version of PHP as our platform is compatible with multiple versions at the same time.
