Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache servers which is used to cache the output code of script applications. It is very useful for scripts with large source code and will accelerate such a website as much as 3 times. PHP sites are dynamic and each time a visitor opens a page, the script links to a database to get some content, after that the code is parsed and compiled prior to it being shown to the site visitor. In case the output code doesn't change however, that is the case with sites that display the very same content all the time, these actions trigger unneeded reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the previously compiled program code and delivers it any time visitors browse a website, so the database doesn't have to be accessed and the program code does not have to be parsed and compiled continuously, which consequently minimizes the website loading time. The module can be extremely helpful for informational sites, blogs, portfolios, etc.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Shared Web Hosting
APC is provided with every single shared web hosting solution that we offer and you can enable it with only a click through your Hepsia Control Panel if you would like to use it for your applications. Several minutes later the framework will be working and you'll experience the considerably faster loading speed of your database-driven sites. As we offer different versions of PHP that could also be selected through Hepsia, you will even be able to employ APC for scripts which need different versions of PHP inside the same account. Our state-of-the-art cloud Internet hosting platform is extremely flexible, so in case you use some other web accelerator for any website and it disrupts APC, you could activate or deactivate the aforementioned for a specific site only by using a php.ini file generated in the domain or subdomain folder.

APC is available with all semi-dedicated hosting solutions since it is pre-installed on the cloud hosting platform where your account will be created. In case you wish to use this module, you can activate it with just a single click inside your Hepsia Control Panel and it'll be fully functional within a few minutes.
