APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module which caches the output code of database-driven script applications. Dynamic PHP Internet sites store their content within a database that is accessed whenever a visitor loads a webpage. The content that should be displayed is gathered and the code is parsed and compiled before it is delivered to the visitor. All these actions need some processing time and require reading and writing on the hosting server for every single page which is loaded. While this can't be avoided for Internet sites with constantly changing content, there are numerous sites that present the same content on a lot of of their pages at all times - blogs, info portals, hotel and restaurant sites, etcetera. APC is extremely useful for such sites because it caches the previously compiled code and shows it any time visitors browse the cached pages, so the code does not need to be parsed and compiled all over again. Not only will this minimize the server load, but it'll also raise the speed of any Internet site many times.

APC is provided with each hosting plan that we offer and you could activate it with only a click through your Hepsia Control Panel if you wish to use it for your web applications. A few minutes later the framework will be working and you'll be able to take advantage of the considerably quicker loading speed of your database-driven websites. As we offer different versions of PHP which could also be selected through Hepsia, you'll even be able to to employ APC for scripts that require different versions of PHP inside the very same account. Our high tech cloud web hosting platform is extremely adaptable, so if you use a different web accelerator for any website and it interferes with APC, you could activate or deactivate the latter for a selected site only by using a php.ini file generated in the domain or subdomain folder.
