Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache web servers that is employed to cache the output code of script applications. It is very efficient for scripts with large source code and will boost such an Internet site as much as 3 times. PHP sites are dynamic and whenever a user opens some page, the script links to a database to retrieve some content, and then the code is parsed and compiled before it is shown to the guest. If the output code doesn't change however, which is the case with sites which display the very same content all the time, such actions result in unneeded reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the already compiled program code and delivers it every time visitors browse a website, so the database does not need to be accessed and the code does not need to be parsed and compiled again and again, which in turn reduces the website loading time. The module can be extremely effective for informational Internet sites, blogs, portfolios, etc.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Hosting

You will be able to employ APC for your web apps with all of the hosting plans that we provide because it's pre-installed on our cloud web hosting platform. Turning it on will take only a click in the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with our shared plans and a couple of minutes later it will begin caching the program code of your software applications. Our platform is quite flexible, so you'll be able to use several configurations based on the system requirements of the scripts. For instance, you can activate APC for a couple of versions of PHP for the entire account and choose the version that each website will use, or you could have the same version of PHP, but enable or disable APC only for specific Internet sites. This is done by putting a php.ini file with a line of code within the domain or subdomain folder where you require the customized configuration.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting

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