Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache servers that is employed to cache the output code of script apps. It is very effective for scripts with large source code and can speed up such a website as much as three times. PHP websites are dynamic and any time a website visitor opens some web page, the script connects to a database to get some content, and then the code is parsed and compiled prior to it being displayed to the website visitor. In case the output code doesn't change however, which is the case with Internet sites which show identical content at all times, such actions result in needless reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the already compiled code and delivers it any time visitors browse a site, so the database does not have to be accessed and the program code does not have to be parsed and compiled continuously, that in turn decreases the website loading time. The module can be extremely efficient for informational sites, blogs, portfolios, and many others.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Hosting

You can use APC with each hosting package that we provide as it is already present on our advanced cloud platform and activating it will take you only a couple of clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. As our platform is extremely flexible, you'll be able to run Internet sites with different system requirements and decide if they will work with APC or not. For example, you could allow APC only for one version of PHP or you could do the latter for several of the versions that run on our platform. You can also choose if all websites using a particular PHP version will use APC or if the latter will be enabled just for selected websites and not for all websites in the hosting account. The aforementioned option is useful if you'd like to employ a different web accelerator for several of your sites. These customizations are carried out effortlessly through a php.ini file in selected domain or subdomain folders.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can use APC with our semi-dedicated server packages and activating this framework is performed with a click inside the Hepsia Control Panel, so even if you lack previous experience, you can use it in order to quicken your websites. As the cloud hosting platform where the semi-dedicated accounts are created is compatible with multiple PHP releases, you will have flexibility regarding the scripts and web accelerators you'll be able to employ. It will take you just a click to activate APC for one or a couple of PHP versions and by using a php.ini file in the domain/subdomain folders where you need settings which are not the same as the ones for the account in general, you could set what PHP release will be used and whether APC should be enabled or not. In this way, one Internet site may use APC and PHP 5.3, for example, whereas another one can use a different accelerator and PHP 5.5.
