Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache web servers that is employed to cache the output code of script apps. It is very useful for scripts with large source code and will speed up such a website up to three times. PHP websites are dynamic and any time a visitor accesses some page, the script connects to a database in order to get some content, then the code is parsed and compiled before it's shown to the website visitor. If the output code doesn't change however, that's the case with Internet sites that display the exact same content all the time, such actions trigger unnecessary reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the previously compiled program code and delivers it whenever visitors browse a website, so the database doesn't need to be accessed and the program code does not have to be parsed and compiled repeatedly, which in turn minimizes the website loading time. The module can be extremely effective for informational sites, blogs, portfolios, and many others.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Hosting

You will be able to use APC for your web apps with any of the cloud hosting packages that we offer as it's pre-installed on our cloud web hosting platform. Enabling it will take just a single click inside the Hepsia Control Panel which is provided with our shared solutions and a couple of minutes later it'll begin caching the program code of your applications. Our platform is quite flexible, so you will be able to use different configurations based on the system requirements of your scripts. For instance, you could activate APC for a couple of releases of PHP for the whole account and pick the version that each website can use, or you could have the exact same version of PHP, but activate or deactivate APC only for specified sites. You can do this by putting a php.ini file with a line of code within the domain or subdomain folder where you require the customized setup.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Servers

APC is provided with all semi-dedicated server packages as it is pre-installed on the cloud website hosting platform where your account will be created. If you'd like to use this module, you can activate it with a single click inside your Hepsia Control Panel and it'll be fully operational in a couple of minutes. Since you may need to use other web accelerators for selected Internet sites, our outstanding platform will allow you to customize the software environment in your account. You'll be able to activate APC for different versions of PHP or use it only for some sites and not for others. For example, a Drupal-based site could work with APC employing PHP 5.4 and a WordPress site can work without APC employing PHP 5.6. All it takes to do the aforementioned is a php.ini file with a few lines in it, so you will be able to run websites with different requirements inside the exact same account.
