APC (PHP Opcode Cache)
Find out what APC (PHP Opcode Cache) is and how it can influence the PHP performance within your hosting account.
Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache servers that is employed to cache the output code of script apps. It is very effective for scripts with large source code and can speed up such a website up to three times. PHP sites are dynamic and any time a visitor opens a webpage, the script hooks up to a database to get some content, and then the code is parsed and compiled before it's shown to the site visitor. If the output code does not change however, that is the case with Internet sites that show the very same content all the time, such actions trigger unneeded reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the already compiled code and delivers it any time visitors browse an Internet site, so the database doesn't have to be accessed and the program code does not have to be parsed and compiled continuously, that in turn lowers the site loading time. The module could be quite helpful for informational sites, blogs, portfolios, and so on.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Web Hosting
APC is available with each and every web hosting package that we offer and you could enable it with only a click through your Hepsia Control Panel if you'd like to use it for your web applications. A couple of minutes later the framework will be active and you will be able to take advantage of the quicker loading speed of your database-driven Internet sites. As we provide several versions of PHP which can also be selected through Hepsia, you'll even be able to to use APC for scripts which need different versions of PHP in the very same account. Our next generation cloud hosting platform is extremely flexible, so in case you use some other web accelerator for any website and it disrupts APC, you'll be able to activate or deactivate the aforementioned for a certain site only by using a php.ini file generated in the domain or subdomain folder.
