Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache servers that is used to cache the output code of script apps. It is very effective for scripts with large source code and will boost such a site up to 3 times. PHP sites are dynamic and every time a visitor accesses some webpage, the script connects to a database in order to get some content, then the code is parsed and compiled prior to it being shown to the website visitor. If the output code doesn't change however, that's the case with websites that show the same content all the time, these actions trigger needless reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the previously compiled program code and delivers it any time visitors browse a website, so the database does not have to be accessed and the code does not need to be parsed and compiled continuously, that consequently decreases the website loading time. The module can be quite helpful for informational sites, blogs, portfolios, and many others.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Hosting

APC is provided with every single cloud hosting plan that we offer and you could enable it with only a click through your Hepsia Control Panel if you wish to use it for your web applications. Several minutes later the framework will be working and you will experience the faster loading speed of your database-driven Internet sites. As we offer different releases of PHP that could also be selected from Hepsia, you will even be able to employ APC for scripts that need different versions of PHP inside the same account. Our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform is very adaptable, so in case you use some other web accelerator for any Internet site and it disrupts APC, you could activate or deactivate the aforementioned for a selected site only by using a php.ini file created in the domain or subdomain folder.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Servers

APC is set up on the amazing cloud Internet hosting platform where all semi-dedicated server accounts are made, so you'll be able to use it regardless of the plan you get. Enabling the module is done from the Hepsia Control Panel and takes only a mouse click, so you will not need any skills or prior experience to be able to take advantage of it. As you will be able to employ different versions of PHP simultaneously, you could customize the software environment for each Internet site you host in the account if necessary. A php.ini file with a couple of lines in it placed in a domain folder will enable you to set what version of PHP this site will use and whether APC needs to be on or off for it. These settings will have priority over those for the account as a whole, so you can run different scripts and employ various web accelerators for sites which are in the same account.
