Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache servers that is employed to cache the output code of script apps. It is very efficient for scripts with large source code and could speed up such an Internet site up to 3 times. PHP websites are dynamic and whenever a visitor accesses some web page, the script links to a database in order to retrieve some content, after that the code is parsed and compiled before it's displayed to the site visitor. If the output code does not change however, which is the case with sites that display identical content all of the time, these actions trigger unnecessary reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the previously compiled code and delivers it every time visitors browse a website, so the database does not have to be accessed and the program code doesn't have to be parsed and compiled over and over again, that in turn decreases the Internet site loading time. The module could be very useful for informational websites, blogs, portfolios, and many others.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Shared Web Hosting

APC is available with every single shared web hosting solution that we offer and you can activate it with just a click through your Hepsia Control Panel if you would like to use it for your applications. A few minutes later the framework will be active and you will notice the faster loading speed of your database-driven sites. Since we provide several versions of PHP that could also be selected from Hepsia, you will even be able to employ APC for scripts that need different versions of PHP within the very same account. Our next generation cloud web hosting platform is very flexible, so if you use a different web accelerator for any website and it disturbs APC, you will be able to activate or deactivate the latter for a particular site only by using a php.ini file created in the domain or subdomain folder.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Servers

APC is available with all semi-dedicated server packages because it's pre-installed on the cloud hosting platform where your account shall be created. In case you would like to use this module, you can enable it with just a single click from your Hepsia Control Panel and it will be fully functional within a few minutes. As you may want to use other web accelerators for selected sites, our leading-edge platform will permit you to personalize the software environment in your account. You can activate APC for different releases of PHP or use it just for some websites and not for others. For instance, a Drupal-based site can work with APC employing PHP 5.4 and a WordPress website can function without APC using PHP 5.6. What is needed to do the aforementioned is a php.ini file with several lines in it, so you can run Internet sites with various requirements from the exact same account.
