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 useful for scripts with large source code and will boost such an Internet site as much as 3 times. PHP websites are dynamic and whenever a user accesses some web page, the script hooks up to a database to retrieve some content, then the code is parsed and compiled before it is shown to the visitor. If the output code does not change however, which is the case with websites which show the very same content at all times, such actions trigger unnecessary reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the previously compiled program code and delivers it any time visitors browse a site, so the database doesn't have to be accessed and the program code doesn't have to be parsed and compiled continuously, which consequently minimizes the Internet site loading time. The module could be pretty helpful for informational websites, blogs, portfolios, etcetera.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Website Hosting

APC is available with each and every website hosting package that we offer and you could activate it with only a click through your Hepsia Control Panel if you would like to use it for your applications. A couple of minutes later the framework will be active and you'll be able to take advantage of the considerably quicker loading speed of your database-driven websites. As we provide different releases of PHP that could also be selected through Hepsia, you will even be able to employ APC for scripts that need different versions of PHP within the same account. Our advanced cloud hosting platform is very flexible, so if you use an alternative web accelerator for any Internet site and it disturbs APC, you'll be able to activate or deactivate the latter for a certain site only by using a php.ini file created in the domain or subdomain folder.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can use APC with all of our semi-dedicated server solutions and activating the framework is done with a mouse click in the Hepsia Control Panel, so even when you lack previous experience, you can use it to accelerate your sites. As the cloud hosting platform where the semi-dedicated accounts are set up is compatible with multiple PHP releases, you'll have flexibility regarding the scripts and web accelerators you could employ. It will take you only a click to enable APC for one or a couple of PHP versions and by using a php.ini file inside the domain/subdomain folders where you need settings that are different from the ones for the account as a whole, you could set what PHP version will be used and whether APC has to be enabled or not. This way, one Internet site can use APC and PHP 5.3, for example, and another one can use a different accelerator and PHP 5.5.
