Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache servers that is employed to cache the output code of script apps. It is very effective for scripts with large source code and can boost such a website as much as 3 times. PHP websites are dynamic and any time a user accesses some webpage, the script links to a database to retrieve some content, then the code is parsed and compiled before it's displayed to the guest. In case the output code does not change however, which is the case with sites that show the exact same content at all times, such actions trigger unnecessary reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the previously compiled code and delivers it each time visitors browse an Internet site, so the database doesn't have to be accessed and the code doesn't have to be parsed and compiled continuously, which consequently lowers the Internet site loading time. The module can be very helpful for informational websites, blogs, portfolios, etc.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Website Hosting

APC is pre-installed on our outstanding cloud platform, so you will be able to use it for your applications regardless of the website hosting package that you select when you sign up. The module can be activated from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel which is used to maintain the shared accounts and only a few minutes later it'll speed up your sites since it will begin caching their program code. If you wish to run sites with various system requirements or take advantage of different web accelerators for some of them, you will be able to customize the software environment by putting a php.ini file in the desired domain folder. Thus, you can enable or disable APC not only for a certain site without affecting the other sites in the account, but also for a certain version of PHP as our platform supports multiple versions simultaneously.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting

APC is set up on the state-of-the-art cloud web hosting platform where all semi-dedicated hosting accounts are made, so you could employ it regardless of the plan you pick. Activating the module is done from the Hepsia Control Panel and takes only a mouse click, so you won't need any skills or previous experience to be able to take advantage of it. Since you will be able to employ different versions of PHP simultaneously, you could modify the software environment for each and every website that you host in the account if needed. A php.ini file with several lines in it placed in a domain folder will permit you to set what version of PHP this site will use and if APC has to be on or off for it. These settings will have priority over the ones for the account as a whole, so you could run different scripts and employ different web accelerators for websites that are in the same account.
