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 can speed up such a website up to three times. PHP websites are dynamic and each time a user opens a web page, the script connects to a database to retrieve some content, and then the code is parsed and compiled before it's shown to the visitor. If the output code doesn't change however, that's the case with Internet sites that display the very same content all of the time, such actions trigger unneeded reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the previously compiled code and delivers it each time visitors browse an Internet site, so the database doesn't have to be accessed and the program code does not have to be parsed and compiled continuously, that consequently decreases the website loading time. The module can be very useful for informational sites, blogs, portfolios, and many others.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Hosting

APC is pre-installed on our cutting-edge cloud platform, so you'll be able to use it for your applications irrespective of the cloud hosting plan that you pick when you join us. The module can be enabled from the Hepsia internet hosting Control Panel that is used to control the shared accounts and just a couple of minutes later it'll boost your websites because it will start caching their code. In case you would like to run Internet sites with different system requirements or use different web accelerators for any of them, you could customize the software environment by placing a php.ini file in the desired domain folder. Thus, you can enable or disable APC not just for a particular Internet site without affecting the remaining Internet sites in the account, but also for a particular version of PHP because our platform is compatible with multiple versions at the same time.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Servers

APC is installed on the state-of-the-art cloud hosting platform where all semi-dedicated server accounts are created, so you will be able to employ it regardless of the package you pick. Enabling the module is done from the Hepsia Control Panel and takes just a click, so you won't need any skills or prior experience to take advantage of it. As you will be able to employ several releases of PHP at the same time, you'll be able to customize the software environment for each website that you host in the account if required. A php.ini file with several lines in it placed in a domain folder will permit you to set what release of PHP this website will use and whether APC needs to be on or off for it. These settings will have priority over the ones for the account as a whole, so you could run different scripts and take advantage of various web accelerators for Internet sites which are in the same account.
