Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache web servers which is employed to cache the output code of script apps. It is very useful for scripts with large source code and can speed up such a website up to three times. PHP websites are dynamic and every time a visitor accesses a page, the script connects to a database to retrieve some content, then the code is parsed and compiled before it's shown to the site visitor. If the output code does not change however, which is the case with websites which display the exact same content at all times, such actions trigger unnecessary reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the previously compiled program code and delivers it any time visitors browse an Internet site, so the database does not need to be accessed and the code does not need to be parsed and compiled continuously, which consequently decreases the website loading time. The module could be extremely efficient for informational sites, blogs, portfolios, etcetera.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Website Hosting

APC is pre-installed on our leading-edge cloud platform, therefore you will be able to use it for your applications irrespective of the cloud website hosting package that you pick when you join us. The module can be enabled from your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel that is used to manage the shared accounts and just a few minutes later it'll speed up your sites because it will begin caching their code. If you want to run sites with different system requirements or use specific web accelerators for any of them, you could customize the software environment by putting a php.ini file inside the desired domain folder. Thus, you can enable or disable APC not just for a specific Internet site without affecting the remaining websites in the account, but also for a certain version of PHP because our platform is compatible with multiple versions simultaneously.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Servers

APC is available with all semi-dedicated server packages as it is pre-installed on the cloud hosting platform where your account shall be created. In case you would like to use this module, you'll be able to enable it with a single click inside your Hepsia Control Panel and it will be fully functional within a few minutes. Since you may want to use other web accelerators for selected websites, our outstanding platform will permit 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 Internet sites and not for others. For example, a Drupal-based website can function with APC employing PHP 5.4 and a WordPress site can work without APC employing PHP 5.6. All it takes to do the aforementioned is a php.ini file with a couple of lines in it, so you could run Internet sites with different requirements from the very same account.
