Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache servers which is employed to cache the output code of script applications. It is very effective for scripts with large source code and could boost such a website up to three times. PHP websites are dynamic and whenever a website visitor opens a web page, the script links to a database to retrieve some content, after that the code is parsed and compiled before it is displayed to the visitor. If the output code doesn't change however, that's the case with Internet sites that show the same content at all times, these actions trigger unnecessary reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the already compiled code and delivers it each time visitors browse a website, so the database does not have to be accessed and the code doesn't need to be parsed and compiled again and again, that consequently lowers the Internet site loading time. The module can be pretty helpful for informational sites, blogs, portfolios, and so on.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Shared Hosting

APC is provided with each shared hosting plan that we offer and you could activate it with just a click through your Hepsia Control Panel if you wish to use it for your web applications. A couple of minutes later the framework will be working and you will notice the considerably quicker loading speed of your database-driven websites. Since we provide several releases of PHP that can also be selected from Hepsia, you will even be able to use APC for scripts which require different versions of PHP in the very same account. Our next generation cloud web hosting platform is extremely flexible, so in case you use an alternative web accelerator for any website and it disturbs APC, you will be able to activate or deactivate the aforementioned for a particular site only by using a php.ini file created in the domain or subdomain folder.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can use APC for every script application which is run on your new semi-dedicated hosting because the module is already installed on the cloud hosting platform where the account will be made. Activating or deactivating APC for the whole account takes one click from the Hepsia Control Panel, but if necessary, you can use the module only for certain websites. This is possible due to the versatility of our cloud platform - several releases of PHP run on it at the same time, so with a php.ini file placed in a website folder, you'll be able to select what release will be used for this particular website and whether APC should be enabled or disabled. Using such a file permits you to use settings which are different from the ones for the account, so you could take full advantage of APC for many scripts where the module makes a difference and not for others where you may take advantage of a different kind of web accelerator.
