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 effective for scripts with large source code and will accelerate such a website up to 3 times. PHP websites are dynamic and whenever a website visitor accesses some web page, the script links to a database in order to get some content, and then the code is parsed and compiled before it's shown to the website visitor. In case the output code doesn't change however, that is the case with Internet sites that show the exact same content at all times, such actions result in unnecessary reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the already compiled program code and delivers it each time visitors browse an Internet site, so the database doesn't need to be accessed and the code doesn't have to be parsed and compiled continuously, which consequently reduces the site loading time. The module can be quite efficient for informational Internet sites, blogs, portfolios, etcetera.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Hosting

You can use APC with every single cloud 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 in your Hepsia Control Panel. As our system is extremely flexible, you will be able to run websites with different requirements and decide if they will use APC or not. For example, you can activate APC only for a single release of PHP or you can do this for several of the releases that run on our platform. You may also choose if all Internet sites using a certain PHP version will use APC or if the latter will be enabled only for selected sites and not for all sites in the web hosting account. The aforementioned option is useful if you want to employ a different web accelerator for several of your sites. These customizations are performed effortlessly through a php.ini file in selected domain or subdomain folders.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Servers

APC is installed on the innovative cloud hosting platform where all semi-dedicated server accounts are made, so you'll be able to employ it regardless of the package you choose. Enabling the module is performed from the Hepsia Control Panel and takes just 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 use different releases of PHP at the same time, you could modify the software environment for every single website which you host in the account if necessary. A php.ini file with several lines in it placed in a domain folder will enable you to set what release of PHP this Internet site will use and whether APC has to be on or off for it. These settings will have priority over the ones for the account in general, so you can run various scripts and use various web accelerators for websites which are in the same account.
