Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache web servers that is employed to cache the output code of script apps. It is very efficient for scripts with large source code and could accelerate such a site as much as 3 times. PHP sites are dynamic and every time a user opens a web page, the script hooks up to a database in order to retrieve some content, then the code is parsed and compiled before it's displayed to the website visitor. If the output code doesn't change however, that's the case with websites that display the exact same content all of the time, these actions result in unneeded reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the previously compiled program code and delivers it any time visitors browse a website, so the database does not need to be accessed and the program code doesn't need to be parsed and compiled repeatedly, which in turn lowers the website loading time. The module can be really effective for informational websites, blogs, portfolios, etcetera.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Website Hosting

APC is pre-installed on our leading-edge cloud platform, so you will be able to use it for your applications irrespective of the website hosting package that you choose when you sign up. The module can be enabled from the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel which is used to control the shared accounts and just several minutes later it will speed up your sites because it will begin caching their program code. In case you want to run Internet sites with various system requirements or take advantage of specific web accelerators for some of them, you can customize the software environment by placing a php.ini file in the preferred domain folder. This way, you can enable or disable APC not only for a particular website without affecting the remaining websites in the account, but also for a particular version of PHP because our platform supports multiple versions simultaneously.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Servers

APC is provided with all semi-dedicated server solutions since it is pre-installed on the cloud hosting platform where your account will be created. If you'd like to use this module, you can activate it with just a single click from your Hepsia Control Panel and it'll be fully operational within a couple of minutes. Since you may need to use alternative web accelerators for selected websites, our cutting-edge platform will enable you to customize the software environment in your account. You will be able to activate APC for different releases of PHP or use it only for some sites and not for others. For instance, a Drupal-based website can function with APC employing PHP 5.4 and a WordPress site can function without APC using PHP 5.6. What is needed to do the aforementioned is a php.ini file with a few lines in it, so you will be able to run sites with various requirements in the very same account.
