Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache web servers which is employed to cache the output code of script applications. It is very effective for scripts with large source code and will boost such a website up to 3 times. PHP sites are dynamic and every time a user accesses some webpage, the script connects to a database to get some content, then the code is parsed and compiled before it's displayed to the website visitor. In case the output code does not change however, that is the case with Internet sites that show the very same content all the time, these actions result in unnecessary 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 have to be accessed and the program code doesn't need to be parsed and compiled repeatedly, which in turn lowers the site loading time. The module could be extremely useful for informational Internet sites, blogs, portfolios, and many others.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Web Hosting

You can use APC with each and every cloud web hosting package that we provide because it is already present on our advanced cloud platform and enabling it will take you just a couple of clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. As our system is quite flexible, you'll be able to run Internet sites with various requirements and decide if they will use APC or not. For instance, you can activate APC only for a single version of PHP or you could do the latter for several of the versions that run on the platform. It's also possible to decide if all Internet sites working with a certain PHP version will use APC or whether the latter will be enabled just for selected sites and not for all Internet sites in the hosting account. The aforementioned option is useful if you need to employ a different web accelerator for several of your Internet sites. These customizations are carried out without any difficulty via a php.ini file in selected domain or subdomain folders.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Servers

APC is available with all semi-dedicated server solutions as it's pre-installed on the cloud website hosting platform where your account shall be created. If you want to use this module, you will be able to enable it with a single click in your Hepsia Control Panel and it'll be fully functional within a few minutes. As you may want to use alternative web accelerators for selected Internet sites, our advanced platform will enable you to personalize the software environment inside your account. You can activate APC for different releases of PHP or use it only for some Internet sites and not for others. For example, a Drupal-based website can work with APC employing PHP 5.4 and a WordPress site 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 can run sites with various requirements from the same account.
