Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache servers which is used to cache the output code of script apps. It is very efficient for scripts with large source code and will accelerate such a website as much as three times. PHP websites are dynamic and each time a visitor accesses a web page, the script connects to a database to get some content, and then the code is parsed and compiled before it's shown to the visitor. If the output code doesn't change however, that's the case with sites which show the exact same content all the time, such actions trigger unneeded reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the previously compiled program code and delivers it every time visitors browse a site, so the database does not need to be accessed and the code does not have to be parsed and compiled repeatedly, which in turn lowers the site loading time. The module could be very effective for informational Internet sites, blogs, portfolios, etc.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Web Hosting

You can use APC with each cloud web hosting package that we offer because it's already set up on our advanced cloud platform and enabling it will take you just a couple of clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. As our system is rather flexible, you will be able to run websites with various requirements and decide if they will use APC or not. For example, you could activate APC only for one release of PHP or you could do this for several of the releases running on our platform. In addition, you can choose if all Internet sites working with a certain PHP version will use APC or whether the latter will be active just for selected sites and not for all websites in the hosting account. The aforementioned option is useful if you need to employ a different web accelerator for several of your websites. These customizations are carried out with ease by using a php.ini file in selected domain or subdomain folders.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Servers

APC is provided with all semi-dedicated server solutions since it is pre-installed on the cloud website hosting platform where your account shall be created. If you'd like to use this module, you'll be able to enable it with a single click inside your Hepsia Control Panel and it will be fully operational in a couple of minutes. As you may need to use other web accelerators for selected websites, our cutting-edge platform will permit you to customize the software environment in your account. You'll be able to activate APC for different releases of PHP or use it only for some sites and not for others. For example, a Drupal-based Internet site can function with APC using PHP 5.4 and a WordPress website can work without APC employing PHP 5.6. What is needed to do that is a php.ini file with a couple of lines in it, so you could run Internet sites with different requirements inside the very same account.
