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 effective for scripts with large source code and can boost such an Internet site as much as 3 times. PHP sites are dynamic and whenever a user opens a page, the script connects to a database to retrieve some content, after that the code is parsed and compiled prior to it being displayed to the site visitor. In case the output code does not change however, which is the case with websites which display identical content all of the time, these actions result in unneeded reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the already compiled code and delivers it any time visitors browse an Internet site, so the database doesn't have to be accessed and the program code does not need to be parsed and compiled over and over again, which in turn lowers the Internet site loading time. The module can be rather efficient for informational Internet sites, blogs, portfolios, and many others.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Web Hosting

APC is available with each and every web hosting plan that we offer and you could enable it with only a click through your Hepsia Control Panel if you'd like to use it for your applications. Several minutes later the framework will be working and you will experience the faster loading speed of your database-driven sites. Since we offer different versions of PHP that could also be selected from Hepsia, you will even be able to use APC for scripts that require different versions of PHP inside the very same account. Our state-of-the-art cloud hosting platform is very flexible, so in case you use another web accelerator for any Internet site and it interferes with APC, you'll be able to activate or deactivate the latter for a selected site only by using a php.ini file generated in the domain or subdomain folder.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting

APC is set up on the innovative cloud hosting platform where all semi-dedicated hosting accounts are created, so you'll be able to use it regardless of the plan you select. Activating the module is performed through the Hepsia Control Panel and takes only a click, so you will not need any skills or earlier experience to take advantage of it. Since you will be able to employ several releases of PHP concurrently, you will be able to customize the software environment for each Internet site which you host in the account if necessary. A php.ini file with a few lines in it placed in a domain folder will allow you to set what version of PHP this specific Internet site will use and if APC needs to be on or off for it. These settings will have priority over those for the account as a whole, so you can run different scripts and take advantage of different web accelerators for Internet sites that are in the same account.
