Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache web servers which is employed to cache the output code of script applications. It is very efficient for scripts with large source code and can accelerate such an Internet site up to 3 times. PHP sites are dynamic and each time a user accesses a webpage, the script hooks up to a database to get some content, after that the code is parsed and compiled prior to it being shown to the site visitor. If the output code doesn't change however, that's the case with sites that show the very same content all the time, these actions result in needless 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 have to be accessed and the program code doesn't need to be parsed and compiled over and over again, which in turn lowers the Internet site loading time. The module could be extremely helpful for informational websites, blogs, portfolios, and so on.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Website Hosting

You can use APC for your web applications with all of the cloud website hosting plans that we provide because it is pre-installed on our cloud web hosting platform. Activating it will take just a click inside the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with our shared solutions and several minutes later it will begin caching the code of your software apps. Our platform is extremely flexible, so you will be able to use different configurations based on the system requirements of your scripts. For example, you can activate APC for a couple of versions of PHP for the entire account and pick the version that each site can use, or you could have the very same version of PHP, but enable or disable APC just for specific sites. You can do this by placing a php.ini file with a line of code inside the domain or subdomain folder where you need the custom configuration.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting

APC is available with all semi-dedicated hosting solutions as it is pre-installed on the cloud website hosting platform where your account will be created. In case you wish to use this module, you can enable it with a single click in your Hepsia Control Panel and it will be fully functional in a couple of minutes. As you may need to use alternative web accelerators for selected sites, our advanced platform will permit you to personalize the software environment in your account. You will be able to activate APC for different versions of PHP or use it only for some websites and not for others. For example, a Drupal-based site could work with APC employing PHP 5.4 and a WordPress website can work 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 will be able to run websites with different requirements in the very same account.
