Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache web servers which is employed to cache the output code of script apps. It is very effective for scripts with large source code and could boost such a site up to three times. PHP websites are dynamic and any time a website visitor opens a page, the script connects to a database to retrieve some content, after that the code is parsed and compiled before it's shown to the site visitor. In case the output code does not change however, that's the case with Internet sites which show identical content all of the time, these actions result in unneeded reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the previously compiled program code and delivers it every time visitors browse a website, so the database doesn't need to be accessed and the code doesn't need to be parsed and compiled repeatedly, which in turn lowers the site loading time. The module can be extremely useful for informational Internet sites, blogs, portfolios, etc.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Shared Hosting

APC is pre-installed on our advanced cloud platform, so you can use it for your applications whatever the shared hosting solution that you select when you join us. The module can be enabled from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is used to maintain the shared accounts and just a few minutes later it will speed up your websites because it'll begin caching their program code. If you wish to run sites with various system requirements or employ different web accelerators for any of them, you could customize the software environment by placing a php.ini file inside the preferred domain folder. Thus, you can enable or disable APC not only for a certain site without affecting the other websites in the account, but also for a specific version of PHP because our platform is compatible with multiple versions simultaneously.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Servers

You’ll be able to use APC for every script application which is run on your new semi-dedicated server as the module is pre-installed on the cloud hosting platform where the account will be created. Activating or deactivating APC for the account takes a single click in the Hepsia Control Panel, but if needed, you can use the module just for particular Internet sites. This is possible on account of the versatility of our cloud platform - multiple releases of PHP run on it at the same time, so with a php.ini file placed in a website folder, you will be able to select what release will be used for this particular site and whether APC needs to be enabled or disabled. Employing such a file allows you to use settings which are different from the standard ones for your account, so you will be able to take full advantage of APC for many scripts where the module will make a difference and not for others where you may employ a different kind of web accelerator.
