APC, which means Alternative PHP Cache, is a framework used for caching the compiled source code of a given script app, which can boost a database-driven site several times. Every time a PHP web page is accessed, the script pulls the site content which should be shown from a database, parses and compiles the code, and the result is shown to the site visitor. While this is necessary for sites with constantly changing content, it's a waste of processing time and system resources for an Internet site that doesn't change, such as an informational portal that displays the very same content on a regular basis. As soon as the webpages for such an Internet site are compiled, APC caches them and delivers them each time a user accesses them. As this saves the time to obtain content from the database and to parse and compile the code, your website will load much faster. APC is really efficient especially for scripts with large source code.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Hosting
APC is available with each and every hosting solution that we offer and you can enable it with only a click through your Hepsia Control Panel if you wish to use it for your web applications. A couple of minutes later the framework will be active and you will experience the quicker loading speed of your database-driven websites. As we provide several versions of PHP which can also be selected through Hepsia, you will even be able to employ APC for scripts that require different versions of PHP in the very same account. Our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform is very adaptable, so in case you use some other web accelerator for any Internet site and it disturbs APC, you could activate or deactivate the latter for a certain site only by using a php.ini file created in the domain or subdomain folder.
