Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache servers that is employed to cache the output code of script applications. It is very useful for scripts with large source code and could boost such an Internet site up to 3 times. PHP sites are dynamic and each time a website visitor opens a webpage, the script links to a database in order to get some content, then the code is parsed and compiled before it's shown to the website visitor. In case the output code doesn't change however, which is the case with websites that display the same content at all times, such actions trigger unneeded reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the already compiled code and delivers it whenever visitors browse an Internet site, so the database does not have to be accessed and the program code does not need to be parsed and compiled continuously, that consequently minimizes the website loading time. The module could be pretty useful for informational sites, blogs, portfolios, and many others.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Website Hosting

APC is pre-installed on our outstanding cloud platform, so you will be able to use it for your applications regardless of the website hosting plan that you select when you join us. The module can be activated through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel which is used to manage the shared accounts and just several minutes later it'll speed up your websites since it will begin caching their code. In case you want to run Internet sites with different system requirements or use specific web accelerators for some of them, you could customize the software environment by putting a php.ini file in the preferred domain folder. In this way, you can enable or disable APC not just for a certain Internet site without affecting the other sites in the account, but also for a certain version of PHP since our platform supports multiple versions simultaneously.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can use APC with all our semi-dedicated hosting packages and activating the framework is performed with a mouse click inside the Hepsia Control Panel, so even when you lack prior experience, you will be able to use it in order to quicken your sites. As the cloud hosting platform where the semi-dedicated accounts are made supports multiple PHP releases, you will have freedom with regards to the scripts and web accelerators you can employ. It will take you just a click to activate APC for one or several PHP versions and by using a php.ini file inside the domain/subdomain folders where you need settings which are not the same as the ones for the account in general, you'll be able to set what PHP release will be used and whether APC has to be enabled or not. This way, one site could use APC and PHP 5.3, for example, while another one can use some different accelerator and PHP 5.5.
