Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache web servers that is used to cache the output code of script applications. It is very efficient for scripts with large source code and will speed up such a website as much as three times. PHP sites are dynamic and every time a user opens some page, the script links to a database in order to get some content, after that the code is parsed and compiled before it's shown to the visitor. In case the output code doesn't change however, that's the case with Internet sites that display identical content at all times, such actions result in needless reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the already compiled program code and delivers it every time visitors browse a website, so the database does not have to be accessed and the program code doesn't have to be parsed and compiled over and over again, that consequently lowers the Internet site loading time. The module could be pretty helpful for informational websites, blogs, portfolios, etcetera.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Web Hosting

You can use APC with each and every web hosting plan that we offer since it's already set up on our advanced cloud platform and activating it will take you only a few clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. As our platform is quite flexible, you'll be able to run Internet sites with different requirements and decide if they will use APC or not. For example, you can enable APC only for a single release of PHP or you can do this for several of the versions that run on our platform. In addition, you can select if all Internet sites using a given PHP version will use APC or if the latter will be active just for selected Internet sites and not for all websites in the website hosting account. The last option is useful if you'd like to employ a different web accelerator for several of your Internet sites. These customizations are carried out without difficulty via a php.ini file in selected domain or subdomain folders.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Servers

APC is set up on the innovative cloud web hosting platform where all semi-dedicated server accounts are made, so you'll be able to employ it regardless of the package you pick. Activating the module is done through the Hepsia Control Panel and takes just a mouse click, so you won't need any skills or earlier experience to be able to take full advantage of it. Since you'll be able to use different versions of PHP at once, you'll be able to customize the software environment for each Internet site that you host in the account if necessary. A php.ini file with a few lines in it placed in a domain folder will enable you to set what version of PHP this Internet site will use and if APC has to be on or off for it. These settings will have priority over the ones 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.
