Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache web servers that is employed to cache the output code of script apps. It is very useful for scripts with large source code and can boost such a website as much as three times. PHP sites are dynamic and each time a user opens some web page, the script connects to a database to retrieve some content, after that the code is parsed and compiled before it is displayed to the website visitor. In case the output code doesn't change however, that's the case with sites that display the exact same content all of the time, these actions trigger unneeded reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the already compiled program code and delivers it every time visitors browse a site, so the database does not have to be accessed and the code doesn't need to be parsed and compiled repeatedly, that in turn minimizes the site loading time. The module could be quite helpful for informational sites, blogs, portfolios, and many others.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Hosting
APC is pre-installed on our cutting-edge cloud platform, which means that you'll be able to use it for your web applications irrespective of the hosting package that you choose when you join us. The module can be enabled from the Hepsia internet hosting Control Panel which is used to handle the shared accounts and only a couple of minutes later it'll speed up your Internet sites as it will start caching their code. If you need to run Internet sites with different system requirements or use different web accelerators for any of them, you can customize the software environment by placing a php.ini file inside the preferred domain folder. In this way, you can enable or disable APC not only for a certain website without affecting the remaining sites in the account, but also for a particular version of PHP since our platform is compatible with multiple versions at the same time.

For example, a Drupal-based site can work with APC employing PHP 5.4 and a WordPress site can function without APC employing PHP 5.6. All it takes to do the aforementioned is a php.ini file with a couple of lines in it, so you can run websites with different requirements from the same account.
