Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache servers which is employed to cache the output code of script apps. It is very useful for scripts with large source code and could accelerate such a site as much as three times. PHP websites are dynamic and every time a user opens some webpage, the script links to a database in order to retrieve some content, and then the code is parsed and compiled before it is displayed to the site visitor. If the output code doesn't change however, that's the case with websites that display identical content at all times, these actions trigger unneeded reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the already compiled program code and delivers it each time visitors browse a website, so the database does not need to be accessed and the program code doesn't have to be parsed and compiled over and over again, which consequently decreases the Internet site loading time. The module can be quite helpful for informational sites, blogs, portfolios, and many others.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Hosting

APC is pre-installed on our outstanding cloud platform, therefore you can use it for your web applications irrespective of the hosting plan that you select when you join us. The module can be activated from your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel which is used to manage the shared accounts and just several minutes later it will boost your websites because it'll begin caching their code. If you need to run websites with different system requirements or employ specific web accelerators for any of them, you could customize the software environment by putting a php.ini file inside the preferred domain folder. In this way, you can enable or disable APC not just for a certain Internet site without affecting the other Internet sites in the account, but also for a particular version of PHP since our platform supports multiple versions at the same time.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Servers

APC is provided with all semi-dedicated server plans since it is pre-installed on the cloud website hosting platform where your account will be created. If you wish to use this module, you'll be able to enable it with a single click inside your Hepsia Control Panel and it'll be fully operational within a couple of minutes. As you may want to use alternative web accelerators for selected websites, our outstanding 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 sites and not for others. For example, a Drupal-based Internet site can function with APC employing PHP 5.4 and a WordPress site can function without APC using PHP 5.6. All it takes to do that is a php.ini file with a couple of lines in it, so you could run Internet sites with various requirements from the exact same account.
