Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache servers which is employed to cache the output code of script apps. It is very useful for scripts with large source code and could speed up such an Internet site up to three times. PHP websites are dynamic and whenever a user opens a web page, the script hooks up to a database in order to retrieve some content, after that the code is parsed and compiled before it is displayed to the site visitor. In case the output code doesn't change however, which is the case with Internet sites that 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 code doesn't have to be parsed and compiled over and over again, that in turn reduces the Internet site loading time. The module can be very useful for informational sites, blogs, portfolios, etc.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Hosting

APC is pre-installed on our next generation cloud platform, so you will be able to use it for your web applications whatever the hosting solution that you select when you sign up. The module can be enabled from your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel which is used to take care of the shared accounts and only a couple of minutes later it'll boost your Internet sites since it will start caching their program code. In case you wish to run websites with different system requirements or take advantage of specific web accelerators for some of them, you could customize the software environment by putting a php.ini file in the preferred domain folder. In this way, you could enable or disable APC not only for a certain website without affecting the other websites in the account, but also for a certain version of PHP as our platform supports multiple versions simultaneously.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can use APC with all our semi-dedicated hosting solutions and activating the framework is done with a mouse click from the Hepsia Control Panel, so even when you lack prior experience, you could use it to boost your Internet sites. As the cloud internet hosting platform where the semi-dedicated accounts are set up supports multiple PHP versions, you'll have freedom regarding the scripts and web accelerators you can employ. It will take you just a click to allow APC for one or several PHP releases and by using a php.ini file inside the domain/subdomain folders where you need settings which are not the same as the ones for the account in general, you'll be able to set what PHP version will be used and whether APC has to be allowed or not. In this way, one site may use APC and PHP 5.3, for instance, while another one may use a different accelerator and PHP 5.5.
