APC, which stands for Alternative PHP Cache, is a framework used for caching the compiled source code of a given script app, that can boost a database-driven Internet site several times. Each time a PHP webpage is accessed, the script pulls the content that needs to be loaded from a database, parses and compiles the program code, and the result is displayed to the site visitor. While this is necessary for Internet sites with regularly changing content, it is a waste of processing time and resources for a website which does not change, like an informational portal which displays identical content on a regular basis. When the pages for such a website are compiled, APC caches them and delivers them any time a website visitor opens them. As this saves the time to request content from the database and to parse and compile the program code, the Internet site will load significantly quicker. APC is really efficient especially for scripts with larger source code.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Shared Web Hosting
APC is available with each and every shared web hosting package that we offer and you could enable it with only a click through your Hepsia Control Panel if you wish to use it for your applications. A couple of minutes later the framework will be working and you will notice the quicker loading speed of your database-driven Internet sites. As we provide different versions of PHP which could also be selected from Hepsia, you'll even be able to to employ APC for scripts that require different versions of PHP within the very same account. Our high tech cloud hosting platform is very flexible, so if you use a different web accelerator for any website and it disturbs APC, you'll be able to activate or deactivate the latter for a specific site only by using a php.ini file generated in the domain or subdomain folder.
