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 effective for scripts with large source code and will speed up such a website up to 3 times. PHP websites are dynamic and whenever a user accesses some webpage, the script hooks up to a database in order to retrieve some content, after that the code is parsed and compiled before it's shown to the site visitor. In case the output code doesn't change however, that's the case with sites that show the same content all the time, these actions result in needless reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the previously compiled program code and delivers it whenever visitors browse an Internet site, so the database doesn't have to be accessed and the program code doesn't need to be parsed and compiled over and over again, that in turn lowers the Internet site loading time. The module can be rather useful for informational Internet sites, blogs, portfolios, and many others.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Website Hosting

You can use APC with each cloud website hosting package that we offer because it is already present on our advanced cloud platform and enabling it will take you only a couple of clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. Since our platform is rather flexible, you can run sites with different requirements and decide whether they will use APC or not. For instance, you could allow APC only for one release of PHP or you could do the latter for several of the releases that run on the platform. You can also decide if all websites using a given PHP version will use APC or if the latter will be active just for selected websites and not for all sites in the web hosting account. The last option is useful when you need to employ a different web accelerator for some of your websites. These customizations are performed effortlessly through a php.ini file in selected domain or subdomain folders.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Servers

APC is available with all semi-dedicated server solutions 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'll be able to enable it with a single click from your Hepsia Control Panel and it'll be fully functional in a few minutes. Since you may need to use other web accelerators for selected websites, our cutting-edge platform will allow you to personalize the software environment inside your account. You'll be able to activate APC for different versions of PHP or use it just for some websites and not for others. For instance, a Drupal-based Internet site could work with APC using PHP 5.4 and a WordPress website can function without APC employing PHP 5.6. All it takes to do the latter is a php.ini file with a couple of lines in it, so you can run websites with various requirements from the very same account.
