APC (PHP Opcode Cache)
Find out what the phrase ‘APC’ means, what exactly APC is able to do PHP performance-wise and the way to enable it for your account.
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 can speed up such a site up to 3 times. PHP websites are dynamic and any time a website visitor opens a page, the script connects to a database to retrieve some content, and then the code is parsed and compiled prior to it being shown to the guest. If the output code doesn't change however, which is the case with sites which display the exact same content all the time, these actions trigger needless reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the previously compiled code and delivers it every time visitors browse an Internet site, so the database does not have to be accessed and the code doesn't have to be parsed and compiled repeatedly, that consequently reduces the website loading time. The module could be rather effective for informational sites, blogs, portfolios, etcetera.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Shared Hosting
You can use APC with each and every shared hosting package that we provide since it's already installed on our advanced cloud platform and activating it will take you just a couple of clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. As our platform is quite flexible, you can run websites with different system requirements and decide if they will use APC or not. For example, you can activate APC only for a single version of PHP or you could do the latter for several of the versions that run on the platform. You may also decide if all Internet sites working with a given PHP version will use APC or whether the latter will be enabled just for selected Internet sites and not for all websites in the hosting account. The last option is useful when you'd like to employ a different web accelerator for some of your Internet sites. These customizations are carried out without any difficulty via a php.ini file in selected domain or subdomain folders.
