Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache web servers that is used to cache the output code of script apps. It is very efficient for scripts with large source code and could speed up such a website up to 3 times. PHP websites are dynamic and any time a website visitor opens some webpage, the script hooks up to a database in order to get some content, then the code is parsed and compiled before it's displayed to the visitor. In case the output code doesn't change however, that's the case with sites which display the same content all of the time, these actions trigger unnecessary reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the already compiled code and delivers it each time visitors browse a website, so the database does not need to be accessed and the program code does not have to be parsed and compiled repeatedly, that consequently minimizes the website loading time. The module could be very effective for informational websites, blogs, portfolios, and many others.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Website Hosting

APC is pre-installed on our state-of-the-art cloud platform, therefore you will be able to use it for your applications regardless of the website hosting plan that you pick when you sign up. The module can be enabled from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is used to handle the shared accounts and just a couple of minutes later it will speed up your Internet sites as it will begin caching their code. If you wish to run websites with various system requirements or take advantage of different web accelerators for any of them, you could customize the software environment by placing a php.ini file in the preferred domain folder. Thus, you can enable or disable APC not only for a particular Internet site without affecting the other websites in the account, but also for a specific version of PHP because our platform supports multiple versions at the same time.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Servers

APC is installed on the amazing cloud web hosting platform where all semi-dedicated server accounts are made, so you'll be able to employ it irrespective of the package you choose. Enabling the module is done from the Hepsia Control Panel and takes just a click, so you will not need any skills or earlier experience in order to take full advantage of it. As you'll be able to employ different versions of PHP at once, you will be able to customize the software environment for every single site that you host in the account if needed. A php.ini file with several lines in it placed in a domain folder will permit you to set what release of PHP this particular site will use and if APC should be on or off for it. These settings will have priority over those for the account as a whole, so you can run different scripts and take advantage of various web accelerators for Internet sites which are in the same account.
