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 useful for scripts with large source code and will boost such a site as much as three times. PHP sites are dynamic and whenever a website visitor opens a page, the script hooks up to a database in order to retrieve some content, and then the code is parsed and compiled before it's shown to the website visitor. In case the output code doesn't change however, that's the case with sites that show identical content at all times, these actions trigger unnecessary reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the previously compiled code and delivers it every time 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 repeatedly, which consequently reduces the site loading time. The module could be extremely useful for informational Internet sites, blogs, portfolios, and many others.

Enabling it will take only a mouse click inside the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with our shared solutions and several minutes later it will start caching the program code of your software applications. Our platform is extremely flexible, so you'll be able to use several configurations based on the system requirements of the scripts. For instance, you will be able to activate APC for several releases of PHP for the entire account and set the version that each site can use, or you can have the very same version of PHP, but enable or disable APC just for particular websites. You can do this by placing a php.ini file with a line of code inside the domain or subdomain folder where you require the customized setup.
