APC (PHP Opcode Cache)
What exactly does the acronym 'APC' imply? Just why is the existence of APC inside your account essential as far as your PHP-based web sites are involved? How to turn on this feature?
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 will boost such an Internet site as much as 3 times. PHP sites are dynamic and every time a user opens a web page, the script connects to a database to retrieve some content, after that the code is parsed and compiled before it is shown to the guest. In case the output code doesn't change however, that is the case with sites that display the exact same content all of the time, these actions result in needless reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the already compiled program code and delivers it whenever visitors browse a website, so the database does not need to be accessed and the program code does not have to be parsed and compiled continuously, which in turn decreases the Internet site loading time. The module can be extremely useful for informational websites, blogs, portfolios, and many others.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Shared Web Hosting
You can use APC with each shared web hosting package that we provide as it is already present on our advanced cloud platform and enabling it will take you just a couple of clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. Since our system is rather flexible, you will be able to run Internet sites with different requirements and decide if they will work with APC or not. For example, you can enable APC only for a single release of PHP or you can do the latter for several of the versions that run on the platform. You can also choose if all sites working with a specific PHP version will use APC or if the latter will be enabled just for selected Internet sites and not for all Internet sites in the web hosting account. The aforementioned option is useful when you would like to employ a different web accelerator for several of your websites. These customizations are carried out without any difficulty by using a php.ini file in selected domain or subdomain folders.
