Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache servers which is used to cache the output code of script apps. It is very useful for scripts with large source code and could boost such an Internet site up to three times. PHP websites are dynamic and any time a user opens a webpage, the script connects to a database to get some content, then the code is parsed and compiled before it is displayed to the visitor. In case the output code doesn't change however, which is the case with Internet sites that display the exact same content all the time, these actions trigger needless reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the previously compiled code and delivers it any time visitors browse an Internet site, so the database does not need to be accessed and the code doesn't need to be parsed and compiled over and over again, which in turn lowers the website loading time. The module can be very effective for informational Internet sites, blogs, portfolios, etcetera.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Hosting

APC is available with each and every hosting solution that we offer and you can activate it with just a click through your Hepsia Control Panel if you wish to use it for your web apps. A couple of minutes later the framework will be active and you'll notice the considerably faster loading speed of your database-driven websites. Since we provide different releases of PHP which could also be selected through Hepsia, you will even be able to use APC for scripts that require different versions of PHP within the same account. Our high tech cloud hosting platform is extremely flexible, so if you use another web accelerator for any Internet site and it disrupts APC, you will be able to activate or deactivate the latter for a specific site only by using a php.ini file generated in the domain or subdomain folder.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Servers

APC is installed on the amazing cloud hosting platform where all semi-dedicated server accounts are made, so you will be able to employ it irrespective of the plan you pick. Enabling the module is done from the Hepsia Control Panel and takes just a click, so you will not need any skills or prior experience in order to take full advantage of it. As you'll be able to work with different releases of PHP concurrently, you'll be able to modify the software environment for each site that you host in the account if needed. A php.ini file with several lines in it placed in a domain folder will enable you to set what version of PHP this specific website will use and whether APC has to be on or off for it. These settings will have priority over those for the account in general, so you could run various scripts and employ different web accelerators for Internet sites that are in the same account.
