APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module that caches the output code of database-driven script applications. Dynamic PHP websites hold their content in a database that is accessed whenever a visitor opens a page. The content which needs to be shown is gathered and the code is parsed and compiled before it's delivered to the visitor. All of these actions take some processing time and require reading and writing on the web server for every single page that is accessed. While this cannot be avoided for Internet sites with constantly changing content material, there are numerous websites that offer the same content on a number of of their webpages constantly - blogs, informational portals, hotel and restaurant sites, etcetera. APC is very useful for such sites since it caches the previously compiled code and displays it any time visitors browse the cached pages, so the code does not have to be parsed and compiled all over again. This will not only minimize the server load, but it'll also raise the speed of any site a few times.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Hosting

You can use APC with every single cloud hosting plan that we provide since it's already present on our advanced cloud platform and activating it will take you only a few clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. As our system is quite flexible, you'll be able to run websites with various requirements and decide whether they will work with APC or not. For instance, you can enable APC only for a single release of PHP or you can do this for several of the releases that run on our platform. You may also decide if all Internet sites using a specific PHP version will use APC or if the latter will be active only for selected websites and not for all websites in the hosting account. The last option is useful when you would like to employ a different web accelerator for several of your Internet sites. These customizations are carried out with ease through a php.ini file in selected domain or subdomain folders.
