APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module that caches the output code of database-driven script software applications. Dynamic PHP sites save their content in a database which is accessed whenever a visitor loads a webpage. The content that has to be displayed is retrieved and the code is parsed and compiled before it is delivered to the visitor. These actions need some processing time and require reading and writing on the web server for each and every page that is loaded. While this cannot be avoided for sites with constantly changing content material, there're numerous Internet sites which feature the very same content on a lot of of their webpages constantly - blogs, informational portals, hotel and restaurant sites, etcetera. APC is exceptionally useful for such websites as it caches the already compiled code and displays it every time visitors browse the cached pages, so the code does not need to be parsed and compiled all over again. This will not only lower the server load, but it'll also increase the speed of any website several times.

Our platform is extremely flexible, so you will be able to use different configurations in accordance with the system requirements of your scripts. For instance, you could activate APC for several versions of PHP for the entire account and select the version that each site can use, or you could have the 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 program code in the domain or subdomain folder where you require the customized setup.
