Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache web servers which is used to cache the output code of script applications. It is very effective for scripts with large source code and will boost such an Internet site up to 3 times. PHP sites are dynamic and every time a visitor opens a page, the script connects to a database in order to retrieve some content, and then the code is parsed and compiled prior to it being shown to the site visitor. If the output code doesn't change however, that is the case with sites which show the very same content all of the time, these actions trigger unneeded reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the previously compiled code and delivers it whenever visitors browse a site, so the database doesn't need to be accessed and the code does not need to be parsed and compiled continuously, which in turn lowers the Internet site loading time. The module could be quite useful for informational websites, blogs, portfolios, and so on.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Website Hosting

APC is available with each and every website hosting package that we offer and you could enable it with only a click from your Hepsia Control Panel if you wish to use it for your web apps. A couple of minutes later the framework will be active and you'll be able to take advantage of the considerably faster loading speed of your database-driven sites. As we provide different releases of PHP which could also be selected through Hepsia, you will even be able to employ APC for scripts that require different versions of PHP within the very same account. Our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform is very flexible, so in case you use a different web accelerator for any website and it interferes with APC, you will be able to activate or deactivate the latter for a certain site only by using a php.ini file generated in the domain or subdomain folder.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Servers

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