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 useful for scripts with large source code and can accelerate such a website up to three times. PHP websites are dynamic and each time a website visitor accesses a page, the script hooks up to a database in order to get some content, after that the code is parsed and compiled before it's shown to the website visitor. If the output code does not change however, that is the case with sites that show the very same content all of the time, such actions trigger unnecessary reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the already compiled program code and delivers it any time visitors browse an Internet site, so the database does not need to be accessed and the code does not have to be parsed and compiled repeatedly, that consequently decreases the Internet site loading time. The module could be really helpful for informational Internet sites, blogs, portfolios, and so on.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Shared Website Hosting

APC is provided with each shared website hosting package that we offer and you could enable it with only a click from your Hepsia Control Panel if you'd like to use it for your web applications. A couple of minutes later the framework will be working and you will be able to take advantage of the faster loading speed of your database-driven websites. Since we offer different versions of PHP that could also be selected from Hepsia, you'll even be able to to use APC for scripts which need different versions of PHP in the very same account. Our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform is extremely adaptable, so in case you use a different web accelerator for any Internet site and it interferes with APC, you could activate or deactivate the aforementioned for a particular 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 installed on the innovative cloud web hosting platform where all semi-dedicated server accounts are made, so you'll be able to employ it whatever the package you get. Enabling the module is done through the Hepsia Control Panel and takes only a click, so you won't need any skills or prior experience in order to take advantage of it. Since you'll be able to use different versions of PHP at once, you could modify the software environment for each website which you host in the account if required. A php.ini file with several lines in it placed in a domain folder will allow you to set what release of PHP this Internet site will use and whether APC should be on or off for it. These settings will have priority over the ones for the account as a whole, so you can run different scripts and use different web accelerators for Internet sites that are in the same account.
