Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache web servers which is employed to cache the output code of script applications. It is very useful for scripts with large source code and can speed up such an Internet site as much as 3 times. PHP websites are dynamic and any time a visitor accesses a web page, the script connects to a database in order to get some content, and then the code is parsed and compiled before it's shown to the guest. If the output code doesn't change however, that is the case with websites that display the same content all the time, such actions result in unneeded reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the previously compiled program code and delivers it every time visitors browse an Internet site, so the database doesn't have to be accessed and the code doesn't need to be parsed and compiled over and over again, which in turn decreases the website loading time. The module can be pretty effective for informational Internet sites, blogs, portfolios, etcetera.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Web Hosting

You can use APC with each web hosting plan that we offer because it is already present on our advanced cloud platform and enabling it will take you only a couple of clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. As our platform is really flexible, you can run sites with different system requirements and decide whether they will use APC or not. For instance, you can allow APC only for one release of PHP or you can do this for several of the releases that run on the platform. You can also decide if all Internet sites using a specific PHP version will use APC or whether the latter will be enabled just for selected Internet sites and not for all Internet sites in the web hosting account. The aforementioned option is useful if you'd like to employ a different web accelerator for some of your websites. These customizations are carried out effortlessly by using a php.ini file in selected domain or subdomain folders.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Servers

APC is available with all semi-dedicated server solutions as it's pre-installed on the cloud hosting platform where your account will be created. In case you wish to use this module, you'll be able to activate it with just a single click in your Hepsia Control Panel and it'll be fully functional within a few minutes. Since you may want to use some other web accelerators for selected Internet sites, our cutting-edge platform will enable you to personalize the software environment inside your account. You will be able to activate APC for different versions of PHP or use it only for some websites and not for others. For example, a Drupal-based site can work with APC employing PHP 5.4 and a WordPress site can function without APC employing PHP 5.6. All it takes to do the aforementioned is a php.ini file with several lines in it, so you can run Internet sites with different requirements from the same account.
