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 accelerate such an Internet site as much as 3 times. PHP sites are dynamic and each time a website visitor accesses some page, the script links to a database to get some content, then the code is parsed and compiled before it's shown to the guest. In case the output code doesn't change however, which is the case with Internet sites which show identical content at all times, such actions trigger unneeded reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the already compiled program code and delivers it whenever visitors browse a site, so the database doesn't need to be accessed and the program code doesn't need to be parsed and compiled continuously, that consequently minimizes the site loading time. The module could be very efficient for informational sites, blogs, portfolios, etcetera.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Web Hosting

You will be able to employ APC for your web apps with any of the web hosting packages that we provide as it is pre-installed on our cloud website hosting platform. Enabling it will take only a mouse click inside the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with our shared solutions and several minutes later it'll start caching the code of your software applications. Our platform is really flexible, so you will be able to use several configurations in accordance with the system requirements of the scripts. For example, you'll be able to activate APC for a couple of releases of PHP for the entire account and set the version that each site will use, or you can have the very same version of PHP, but activate or deactivate APC only for specified websites. You can do this by putting a php.ini file with a line of code inside the domain or subdomain folder where you require the customized configuration.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Servers

APC is set up on the innovative cloud web hosting platform where all semi-dedicated server accounts are made, so you will be able to use it irrespective of the package you pick. Enabling the module is performed from the Hepsia Control Panel and takes only a mouse click, so you will not need any skills or earlier experience to be able to take full advantage of it. Since you will be able to employ several releases of PHP at once, you will be able to modify the software environment for each and every Internet site you host in the account if required. A php.ini file with a couple of lines in it placed in a domain folder will permit you to set what release of PHP this specific Internet site will use and whether APC has to be on or off for it. These settings will have priority over those for the account as a whole, so you can run different scripts and employ different web accelerators for sites which are in the same account.
