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 efficient for scripts with large source code and could boost such a website up to three times. PHP sites are dynamic and any time a 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 shown to the site visitor. In case the output code does not change however, that's the case with sites which display identical content at all times, such actions result in needless reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the previously compiled program code and delivers it every time visitors browse a site, so the database doesn't have to be accessed and the program code does not need to be parsed and compiled again and again, which consequently decreases the site loading time. The module could be quite helpful for informational websites, blogs, portfolios, and many others.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Web Hosting

APC is provided with each web hosting package that we offer and you could activate it with only a click through your Hepsia Control Panel if you wish to use it for your applications. Several minutes later the framework will be working and you will notice the faster loading speed of your database-driven sites. Since we offer several releases of PHP that can also be selected through Hepsia, you'll even be able to to employ APC for scripts that require different versions of PHP within the same account. Our advanced cloud web hosting platform is extremely adaptable, so if you use an alternative web accelerator for any Internet site and it disturbs APC, you could activate or deactivate the latter for a specific site only by using a php.ini file generated 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 pre-installed on the cloud hosting platform where the account will be generated. Activating or deactivating APC for the account requires a single click from the Hepsia Control Panel, but if needed, you can use the module just for particular Internet sites. This is possible due to the versatility of our cloud platform - different versions of PHP run on it concurrently, so with a php.ini file placed in a website folder, you will be able to select what release will be used for this specific website and whether APC has to be enabled or disabled. Using such a file enables you to use settings which are different from the standard ones for the account, so you could take full advantage of APC for many scripts where the module will make a difference and not for others where you may take advantage of another type of web accelerator.
