Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache web servers that is used to cache the output code of script apps. It is very useful for scripts with large source code and can boost such a site up to three times. PHP sites are dynamic and whenever a visitor opens a page, the script connects to a database to retrieve some content, and then the code is parsed and compiled before it is displayed to the guest. If the output code doesn't change however, which is the case with sites which display the very same content at all times, these actions result in unneeded reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the previously compiled code and delivers it each time visitors browse a website, so the database does not need to be accessed and the program code doesn't have to be parsed and compiled over and over again, which in turn reduces the site loading time. The module could be very useful for informational Internet sites, blogs, portfolios, and many others.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Hosting

You can use APC with each hosting plan that we provide since it's already set up on our advanced cloud platform and activating it will take you just a couple of clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. As our system is rather flexible, you will be able to run Internet sites with various requirements and decide whether they will use APC or not. For example, you can allow APC only for a single release of PHP or you could do the latter for several of the versions that run on our platform. You may also select if all websites using a certain PHP version will use APC or if the latter will be active just for selected sites and not for all sites in the website hosting account. The last option is useful when you'd like to employ a different web accelerator for several of your sites. These customizations are done with ease by using a php.ini file in selected domain or subdomain folders.

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 shall be created. If you want 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 operational within a few minutes. As you may need to use some other web accelerators for selected Internet sites, our leading-edge platform will allow you to customize the software environment in 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 instance, a Drupal-based Internet site could work with APC using PHP 5.4 and a WordPress website can function without APC using PHP 5.6. What is needed to do that is a php.ini file with several lines in it, so you'll be able to run websites with different requirements in the exact same account.
