Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache servers that is employed to cache the output code of script applications. It is very efficient for scripts with large source code and could speed up such an Internet site as much as three times. PHP sites are dynamic and every time a visitor opens some web page, the script links to a database in order to get some content, after that the code is parsed and compiled before it is displayed to the website visitor. If the output code does not change however, that's the case with Internet sites which show identical content all of the time, such actions result in excessive reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the previously compiled program code and delivers it any time visitors browse a website, so the database does not have to be accessed and the code doesn't have to be parsed and compiled repeatedly, that in turn reduces the website loading time. The module could be quite efficient for informational sites, blogs, portfolios, etc.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Hosting

APC is available with every single hosting plan that we offer and you could activate it with only a click from your Hepsia Control Panel if you'd like to use it for your web applications. Several minutes later the framework will be active and you will experience the quicker loading speed of your database-driven sites. As we offer different versions of PHP that could also be selected from Hepsia, you will even be able to employ APC for scripts that require different versions of PHP within the very same account. Our state-of-the-art cloud Internet hosting platform is extremely flexible, so if you use an alternative web accelerator for any Internet site and it interferes with APC, you'll be able to activate or deactivate the aforementioned for a specific 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 installed on the amazing cloud Internet hosting platform where all semi-dedicated hosting accounts are made, so you'll be able to employ it whatever the plan you select. Enabling the module is performed through the Hepsia Control Panel and takes just a click, so you will not need any skills or previous experience to be able to take full advantage of it. Since you'll be able to work with several versions of PHP at once, you will be able to customize the software environment for every single Internet site which you host in the account if required. A php.ini file with several lines in it placed in a domain folder will enable you to set what version of PHP this Internet site will use and if APC should be on or off for it. These settings will have priority over those for the account as a whole, so you can run various scripts and take advantage of various web accelerators for Internet sites which are in the same account.
