Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache servers that is used to cache the output code of script applications. It is very efficient for scripts with large source code and could accelerate such a website as much as three times. PHP websites are dynamic and each time a visitor opens some web page, the script links to a database in order to get some content, after that the code is parsed and compiled before it's shown to the site visitor. If the output code does not change however, that's the case with Internet sites that show the very same content at all times, such actions result in unneeded reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the already compiled program code and delivers it any time visitors browse a site, so the database doesn't have to be accessed and the program code does not have to be parsed and compiled continuously, which in turn lowers the website loading time. The module can be quite useful for informational sites, blogs, portfolios, etc.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Hosting

APC is pre-installed on our leading-edge cloud platform, so you will be able to use it for your web applications regardless of the cloud hosting package that you choose when you register. The module can be activated from your Hepsia internet hosting Control Panel which is used to control the shared accounts and only a few minutes later it will speed up your sites because it'll start caching their code. In case you need to run websites with various system requirements or take advantage of different web accelerators for any of them, you'll be able to customize the software environment by placing a php.ini file inside the preferred domain folder. Thus, you can enable or disable APC not only for a particular Internet site without affecting the remaining sites in the account, but also for a particular version of PHP since our platform supports multiple versions at the same time.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Servers

APC is set up on the amazing cloud hosting platform where all semi-dedicated server accounts are made, so you'll be able to use it irrespective of the plan you choose. Activating the module is done from the Hepsia Control Panel and takes just a click, so you won't need any skills or prior experience to be able to take advantage of it. As you'll be able to use several versions of PHP at the same time, you'll be able to customize the software environment for each and every Internet site that you host in the account if needed. A php.ini file with a few lines in it placed in a domain folder will enable you to set what release of PHP this site will use and if APC should be on or off for it. These settings will have priority over the ones for the account as a whole, so you could run different scripts and use various web accelerators for sites which are in the same account.
