Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache servers which is employed to cache the output code of script applications. It is very useful for scripts with large source code and can accelerate such a website as much as 3 times. PHP sites are dynamic and any time a visitor accesses a page, the script hooks up to a database in order to get some content, after that the code is parsed and compiled before it's displayed to the website visitor. If the output code doesn't change however, that's the case with sites that show the very same content all the time, these actions trigger excessive reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the previously compiled code and delivers it each time visitors browse a site, so the database doesn't have to be accessed and the program code doesn't need to be parsed and compiled continuously, that consequently decreases the Internet site loading time. The module could be extremely helpful for informational Internet sites, blogs, portfolios, and many others.

The module can be enabled from the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel that is used to manage the shared accounts and just several minutes later it will boost your websites since it'll start caching their program code. In case you wish to run websites with various system requirements or take advantage of different web accelerators for any of them, you could customize the software environment by placing a php.ini file in the preferred domain folder.
