APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module which caches the output code of database-driven script apps. Dynamic PHP Internet sites keep their content within a database that is accessed whenever a visitor opens a webpage. The content that needs to be displayed is retrieved and the code is parsed and compiled prior to it being delivered to the site visitor. These actions need some processing time and include reading and writing on the web server for each and every page which is opened. While this can't be avoided for websites with regularly changing content, there are a lot of websites that present the very same content on a number of of their pages constantly - blogs, informational portals, hotel and restaurant websites, etcetera. APC is exceptionally useful for such sites as it caches the already compiled code and displays it any time visitors browse the cached pages, so the code doesn't need to be parsed and compiled repeatedly. This will not only reduce the server load, but it'll also raise the speed of any Internet site a few times.

APC is available with every single shared hosting solution that we offer and you can activate it with just a click from your Hepsia Control Panel if you'd like to use it for your web apps. A couple of minutes later the framework will be active and you will be able to take advantage of the considerably faster loading speed of your database-driven Internet sites. Since we provide several versions of PHP that could also be selected from Hepsia, you will even be able to employ APC for scripts which require different versions of PHP within the very same account. Our state-of-the-art cloud Internet hosting platform is extremely flexible, so in case you use an alternative web accelerator for any Internet site and it interferes with APC, you'll be able to activate or deactivate the latter for a selected site only by using a php.ini file generated in the domain or subdomain folder.
