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 efficient for scripts with large source code and will speed up such a site up to three times. PHP websites are dynamic and any time a user opens some web page, the script links to a database to get some content, after that the code is parsed and compiled prior to it being displayed to the guest. If the output code does not change however, that's the case with websites which show identical content all of the time, such actions trigger needless reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the previously compiled code and delivers it whenever visitors browse a website, so the database does not need to be accessed and the code doesn't have to be parsed and compiled repeatedly, that consequently minimizes the website loading time. The module could be quite useful for informational Internet sites, blogs, portfolios, etcetera.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Hosting

You can use APC with each cloud hosting plan that we provide since it is already present on our advanced cloud platform and enabling it will take you only a couple of clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. Since our system is rather flexible, you will be able to run websites with different requirements and decide if they will use APC or not. For instance, you can activate APC only for a single release of PHP or you can do this for several of the releases that run on the platform. You may also select if all sites using a certain PHP version will use APC or if the latter will be active just for selected sites and not for all websites in the website hosting account. The last option is useful if you intend to employ a different web accelerator for some of your sites. These customizations are done without difficulty via a php.ini file in selected domain or subdomain folders.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting

APC is provided with all semi-dedicated hosting plans since it's pre-installed on the cloud website hosting platform where your account shall be created. In case you would like to use this module, you'll be able to enable it with just a single click in your Hepsia Control Panel and it will be fully functional within a couple of minutes. As you may want to use alternative web accelerators for selected websites, our state-of-the-art platform will permit you to personalize the software environment inside your account. You'll be able to activate APC for different versions of PHP or use it just for some websites and not for others. For instance, a Drupal-based Internet site could work with APC using PHP 5.4 and a WordPress website can work without APC using PHP 5.6. What is needed to do the latter is a php.ini file with several lines in it, so you could run websites with different requirements in the very same account.
