Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache servers which is employed to cache the output code of script apps. It is very useful for scripts with large source code and could boost such an Internet site up to three times. PHP websites are dynamic and every time a website visitor accesses a page, the script hooks up to a database in order to get some content, then the code is parsed and compiled before it is shown to the guest. In case the output code does not change however, which is the case with websites that display the same content all the time, these actions result in excessive reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the already compiled code and delivers it every time visitors browse a site, so the database does not have to be accessed and the code does not have to be parsed and compiled repeatedly, which in turn minimizes the site loading time. The module can be very effective for informational Internet sites, blogs, portfolios, and many others.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Website Hosting

APC is pre-installed on our cutting-edge cloud platform, which means that you can use it for your applications whatever the cloud website hosting plan that you pick when you sign up. The module can be enabled from your Hepsia internet hosting Control Panel which is used to handle the shared accounts and only several minutes later it will boost your Internet sites since it will start caching their code. In case you would like to run sites with different system requirements or use different web accelerators for some of them, you can customize the software environment by putting a php.ini file in the desired domain folder. This way, you could enable or disable APC not just for a certain site without affecting the remaining Internet sites 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 set up on the amazing cloud web hosting platform where all semi-dedicated server accounts are made, so you'll be able to employ it irrespective of the plan you pick. Activating the module is performed through the Hepsia Control Panel and takes just a click, so you will not need any skills or prior experience to be able to take full advantage of it. As you'll be able to use several releases of PHP at once, you'll be able to customize the software environment for each Internet site you host in the account if necessary. A php.ini file with a couple of lines in it placed in a domain folder will permit you to set what version of PHP this website will use and if APC has to be on or off for it. These settings will have priority over those for the account in general, so you can run different scripts and employ different web accelerators for sites which are in the same account.
