Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache servers which is employed to cache the output code of script applications. It is very effective for scripts with large source code and could speed up such an Internet site up to three times. PHP sites are dynamic and whenever a user accesses a webpage, the script links to a database in order to retrieve some content, and then the code is parsed and compiled prior to it being displayed to the site visitor. If the output code doesn't change however, that 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 code and delivers it any time visitors browse a website, so the database doesn't need to be accessed and the program code does not have to be parsed and compiled again and again, which in turn minimizes the site loading time. The module could be pretty helpful for informational websites, blogs, portfolios, etcetera.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Hosting

APC is pre-installed on our outstanding cloud platform, which means that you will be able to use it for your applications whatever the cloud hosting package that you select when you register. The module can be enabled from your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel which is used to take care of the shared accounts and just several minutes later it will speed up your Internet sites since it will start caching their program code. If you would like to run sites with different system requirements or use specific web accelerators for any of them, you could customize the software environment by putting a php.ini file inside the preferred domain folder. Thus, you can enable or disable APC not only for a specific site without affecting the other sites in the account, but also for a certain version of PHP as our platform supports multiple versions simultaneously.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting

APC is available with all semi-dedicated hosting packages because it is pre-installed on the cloud hosting platform where your account shall be created. In case you want to use this module, you can enable it with a single click from your Hepsia Control Panel and it will be fully operational in a few minutes. As you may want to use alternative web accelerators for selected sites, our leading-edge platform will allow you to customize the software environment inside your account. You can activate APC for different versions of PHP or use it just for some websites and not for others. For instance, a Drupal-based website can work with APC employing PHP 5.4 and a WordPress site can function without APC employing PHP 5.6. What is needed to do that is a php.ini file with a couple of lines in it, so you can run sites with different requirements from the very same account.
