Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache web servers which is employed to cache the output code of script applications. It is very effective for scripts with large source code and will accelerate such a site up to three times. PHP sites are dynamic and whenever a visitor accesses a webpage, the script links to a database in order to get some content, then the code is parsed and compiled before it is shown to the guest. In case the output code does not change however, that's the case with Internet sites that display the very same content at all times, such actions trigger excessive reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the previously compiled program code and delivers it every time visitors browse an Internet site, so the database does not have to be accessed and the program code does not have to be parsed and compiled continuously, which in turn lowers the site loading time. The module could be rather effective for informational Internet sites, blogs, portfolios, and so on.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Web Hosting

You can use APC with each and every web hosting plan that we offer since it is already set up on our advanced cloud platform and enabling it will take you only a few clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. As our system is quite flexible, you will be able to run sites with various requirements and decide whether they will work with APC or not. For example, you could activate APC only for a single version of PHP or you could do the latter for several of the releases running on the platform. You may also decide if all sites using a particular PHP version will use APC or whether the latter will be enabled only for selected websites and not for all websites in the hosting account. The last option is useful when you wish to employ a different web accelerator for some of your websites. These customizations are carried out without difficulty by using a php.ini file in selected domain or subdomain folders.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting

APC is set up on the amazing cloud web hosting platform where all semi-dedicated hosting accounts are made, so you'll be able to use it irrespective of the package you pick. Activating the module is done from the Hepsia Control Panel and takes just a mouse click, so you will not need any skills or earlier experience to take full advantage of it. Since you'll be able to employ different versions of PHP at the same time, you'll be able to modify the software environment for every single site you host in the account if required. A php.ini file with a couple of lines in it placed in a domain folder will enable you to set what release of PHP this Internet site will use and if APC needs 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 which are in the same account.
