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 can accelerate such a website up to three times. PHP sites are dynamic and every time a visitor opens a page, the script links to a database to get some content, then the code is parsed and compiled before it is shown to the site visitor. If the output code doesn't change however, which is the case with websites that display the same content all the time, such actions trigger needless reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the previously compiled 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 need to be parsed and compiled continuously, which in turn decreases the Internet site loading time. The module can be pretty useful for informational sites, blogs, portfolios, and so on.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Hosting

You can use APC with each and every cloud hosting plan that we provide as it is already installed on our advanced cloud platform and activating it will take you just a couple of clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. As our system is rather flexible, you will be able to run websites with various system requirements and decide if they will use APC or not. For example, you could allow APC only for a single release of PHP or you could do the latter for several of the releases running on our platform. You may also decide if all sites using a particular PHP version will use APC or whether the latter will be active just for selected sites and not for all websites in the web hosting account. The aforementioned option is useful when you would like to employ a different web accelerator for several of your sites. These customizations are carried out with ease through a php.ini file in selected domain or subdomain folders.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting

APC is installed on the state-of-the-art cloud hosting platform where all semi-dedicated hosting accounts are made, so you'll be able to employ it whatever the plan you pick. Activating the module is done through the Hepsia Control Panel and takes just a mouse click, so you won't need any skills or earlier experience in order to take advantage of it. Since you'll be able to work with different releases of PHP at the same time, you will be able to customize the software environment for each and every Internet site you host in the account if necessary. A php.ini file with a few lines in it placed in a domain folder will allow you to set what version of PHP this website will use and whether APC needs to be on or off for it. These settings will have priority over the ones for the account in general, so you can run different scripts and employ various web accelerators for Internet sites that are in the same account.
