Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache web servers which is employed to cache the output code of script apps. It is very useful for scripts with large source code and can boost such a website up to 3 times. PHP sites are dynamic and whenever a visitor opens a page, the script hooks up to a database in order to retrieve some content, after that the code is parsed and compiled before it is displayed to the website visitor. If the output code doesn't change however, that is the case with websites that show identical content at all times, such actions result in unneeded reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the already compiled code and delivers it every time visitors browse a site, so the database doesn't need to be accessed and the program code doesn't have to be parsed and compiled continuously, which in turn decreases the site loading time. The module could be very efficient for informational websites, blogs, portfolios, and so on.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Hosting

APC is pre-installed on our cutting-edge cloud platform, which means that you can use it for your applications regardless of the cloud hosting package that you select when you register. The module can be enabled through the Hepsia internet hosting Control Panel which is used to manage the shared accounts and just several minutes later it will speed up your Internet sites because it will start caching their code. In case you wish to run Internet sites with various system requirements or use different web accelerators for some of them, you could customize the software environment by putting a php.ini file in the preferred domain folder. This way, you can enable or disable APC not only for a certain site without affecting the remaining Internet sites in the account, but also for a specific version of PHP because our platform is compatible with multiple versions at the same time.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can take full advantage of APC with all of our semi-dedicated server packages and activating this framework is performed with a click inside the Hepsia Control Panel, so even when you have no prior experience, you could use it to quicken your Internet sites. As the cloud internet hosting platform where the semi-dedicated accounts are set up supports multiple PHP versions, you'll have flexibility with regards to the scripts and web accelerators you will be able to use. It will take you only a click to activate APC for one or a couple of PHP releases and by using a php.ini file in the domain/subdomain folders where you need settings which are not the same as the ones for the account as a whole, you could set what PHP release will be used and whether APC has to be allowed or not. This way, one website could use APC and PHP 5.3, for example, whereas another one can use some other accelerator and PHP 5.5.
