APC (PHP Opcode Cache)
Find out what APC (PHP Opcode Cache) is and how it could impact the PHP performance inside your web hosting account.
APC, which is short for Alternative PHP Cache, is a framework used for caching the compiled source code of a given script app, that can boost a database-driven Internet site several times. Every time a PHP webpage is opened, the script pulls the site content which needs to be loaded from a database, parses and compiles the program code, then the result is shown to the site visitor. While this is necessary for websites with regularly changing content, it's a total waste of processing time and system resources for a website that does not change, for example an informational portal which displays the very same content all the time. When the webpages for such a website are compiled, APC caches them and delivers them whenever a website visitor loads them. Since this saves the time to request content from the database and to parse and compile the code, your Internet site will load considerably quicker. APC is really helpful particularly for scripts with large source code.

package that you choose when you register. The module can be activated from the Hepsia internet hosting Control Panel that is used to maintain the shared accounts and only a couple of minutes later it'll speed up your websites because it will begin caching their code. In case you need to run websites with various system requirements or take advantage of specific web accelerators for any of them, you will be able to customize the software environment by putting a php.ini file in the desired domain folder.
