APC, which is short for Alternative PHP Cache, is a framework used for caching the compiled source code of a given script application, which can boost a database-driven Internet site several times. Any time a PHP web page is accessed, the script pulls the website content which should be loaded from a database, parses and compiles the code, and then the result is shown to the website visitor. While this is necessary for websites with constantly changing content, it is a total waste of processing time and resources for a site which doesn't change, for instance an informational portal that shows the exact same content on a regular basis. When the pages for such an Internet site are compiled, APC caches them and delivers them each time a website visitor accesses them. Since this saves the time to obtain content from the database and to parse and compile the code, your website will load considerably faster. APC is very efficient especially for scripts with large source code.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Website Hosting
APC is pre-installed on our next generation cloud platform, which means that you will be able to use it for your web applications regardless of the cloud website hosting plan that you choose when you join us. The module can be activated from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel which is used to maintain the shared accounts and only a few minutes later it'll speed up your sites since it will start caching their code. In case you need to run Internet sites with different system requirements or take advantage of different web accelerators for some of them, you will be able to customize the software environment by placing a php.ini file in the preferred domain folder. This way, you can enable or disable APC not just for a specific 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.
