Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache servers which is employed to cache the output code of script apps. It is very efficient for scripts with large source code and will accelerate such a website up to three times. PHP websites are dynamic and whenever a website visitor opens a web page, the script connects to a database to get some content, then the code is parsed and compiled before it's displayed to the site visitor. In case the output code doesn't change however, that is the case with websites which display identical content all the time, these actions trigger needless reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the previously compiled program code and delivers it whenever visitors browse a site, so the database does not need to be accessed and the program code does not have to be parsed and compiled again and again, which consequently decreases the Internet site loading time. The module could be extremely useful for informational Internet sites, blogs, portfolios, etc.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Web Hosting

APC is pre-installed on our outstanding cloud platform, so you can use it for your web applications whatever the web hosting solution that you select when you sign up. The module can be enabled from your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel that is used to manage the shared accounts and just several minutes later it will speed up your websites as it'll begin caching their code. If you need to run Internet sites with various system requirements or take advantage of different web accelerators for any of them, you could customize the software environment by putting a php.ini file inside the desired domain folder. This way, you can enable or disable APC not just for a specific website without affecting the other websites in the account, but also for a particular version of PHP since our platform is compatible with multiple versions simultaneously.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can use APC for each and every script application which runs on your new semi-dedicated hosting since the module is already installed on the cloud hosting platform where the account will be generated. Activating or deactivating APC for the entire account requires one click from the Hepsia Control Panel, but if needed, you could use the module just for particular sites. This is possible as a result of the versatility of our cloud platform - multiple releases of PHP run on it concurrently, so with a php.ini file placed in a website folder, you'll be able to pick what version will be used for this specific website and whether APC should be enabled or disabled. Using such a file allows you to use settings that are different from the standard ones for the account, so you could take advantage of APC for some scripts where the module can make a difference and not for others where you could employ some other kind of web accelerator.
