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 efficient for scripts with large source code and could boost such an Internet site up to 3 times. PHP sites are dynamic and each time a user opens some webpage, the script links to a database to get some content, and then the code is parsed and compiled before it is displayed to the website visitor. If the output code doesn't change however, which is the case with websites which display identical content all of the time, these actions trigger excessive reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the previously compiled code and delivers it each time visitors browse a website, so the database does not need to be accessed and the program code does not need to be parsed and compiled repeatedly, that consequently minimizes the website loading time. The module can be very efficient for informational Internet sites, blogs, portfolios, etc.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Website Hosting

You can use APC with each website hosting plan that we provide because it's already set up on our advanced cloud platform and activating it will take you only a couple of clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. As our system is extremely flexible, you can run Internet sites with various requirements and decide whether they will work with APC or not. For example, you could enable APC only for a single version of PHP or you could do the latter for several of the versions running on our platform. In addition, you can select if all sites using a particular PHP version will use APC or if the latter will be active only for selected sites and not for all Internet sites in the hosting account. The aforementioned option is useful if you wish to employ a different web accelerator for some of your Internet sites. These customizations are performed effortlessly via a php.ini file in selected domain or subdomain folders.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting

APC is set up on the amazing cloud Internet hosting platform where all semi-dedicated hosting accounts are created, so you'll be able to employ it irrespective of the plan you pick. Activating the module is done through the Hepsia Control Panel and takes just a mouse click, so you will not need any skills or previous experience in order to take full advantage of it. As you'll be able to use several versions of PHP simultaneously, you will be able to customize the software environment for each and every site that you host in the account if needed. A php.ini file with several lines in it placed in a domain folder will permit you to set what release of PHP this website will use and if APC should be on or off for it. These settings will have priority over the ones for the account in general, so you can run various scripts and employ different web accelerators for Internet sites that are in the same account.
