Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache web servers which is used to cache the output code of script applications. It is very useful for scripts with large source code and could boost such a site as much as three times. PHP websites are dynamic and whenever a website visitor opens a web page, the script connects to a database to get some content, after that the code is parsed and compiled before it's shown to the guest. If the output code doesn't change however, which is the case with sites which display the same content all the time, such actions result in needless reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the already compiled program code and delivers it whenever visitors browse a website, so the database does not have to be accessed and the code doesn't have to be parsed and compiled again and again, that in turn minimizes the website loading time. The module can be pretty useful for informational websites, blogs, portfolios, and so on.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Website Hosting

APC is pre-installed on our cutting-edge cloud platform, so you will be able to use it for your applications regardless of the website hosting plan that you pick when you join us. The module can be activated from the Hepsia internet hosting Control Panel that is used to manage the shared accounts and just a couple of minutes later it'll speed up your Internet sites because it'll start caching their program code. In case you wish to run sites with various system requirements or employ specific web accelerators for any of them, you can customize the software environment by placing a php.ini file inside the preferred domain folder. Thus, you could enable or disable APC not just for a particular Internet site without affecting the other websites in the account, but also for a particular version of PHP as our platform is compatible with multiple versions simultaneously.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can take full advantage of APC with our semi-dedicated hosting solutions and activating this framework is performed with a mouse click from the Hepsia Control Panel, so even if you have no prior experience, you can use it to accelerate your Internet sites. As the cloud hosting platform where the semi-dedicated accounts are made supports multiple PHP versions, you will have freedom with regards to the scripts and web accelerators you'll be able to employ. It will take you just a click to allow APC for one or several PHP releases and by using a php.ini file in the domain/subdomain folders where you need settings that are different from the ones for the account in general, you'll be able to set what PHP version will be used and whether APC has to be enabled or not. In this way, one site may use APC and PHP 5.3, for instance, while another one could use another accelerator and PHP 5.5.
