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 useful for scripts with large source code and will boost such a site up to three times. PHP websites are dynamic and whenever a user accesses a web page, the script hooks up to a database to get some content, then the code is parsed and compiled before it's shown to the website visitor. If the output code doesn't change however, which is the case with sites that show the exact same content all of the time, such actions result in excessive reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the already compiled program code and delivers it every time visitors browse an Internet site, so the database doesn't have to be accessed and the code doesn't have to be parsed and compiled continuously, which consequently lowers the Internet site loading time. The module can be extremely useful for informational Internet sites, blogs, portfolios, and so on.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Hosting

APC is pre-installed on our cutting-edge cloud platform, therefore you'll be able to use it for your web applications irrespective of the cloud hosting plan that you choose when you join us. The module can be activated from the Hepsia internet hosting Control Panel which is used to maintain the shared accounts and only several minutes later it'll boost your websites as it'll start caching their program code. If you want to run websites with various system requirements or employ specific web accelerators for some of them, you could customize the software environment by putting a php.ini file inside the preferred domain folder. This way, you could enable or disable APC not just for a specific Internet site without affecting the other websites in the account, but also for a particular version of PHP because our platform is compatible with multiple versions simultaneously.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting

APC is available with all semi-dedicated hosting packages as it is pre-installed on the cloud hosting platform where your account will be created. In case you wish to use this module, you will be able to enable it with just a single click inside your Hepsia Control Panel and it'll be fully functional in a couple of minutes. Since you may want to use other web accelerators for selected Internet sites, our outstanding platform will permit you to customize the software environment inside your account. You can activate APC for different releases of PHP or use it only for some Internet sites and not for others. For example, a Drupal-based site can work with APC employing PHP 5.4 and a WordPress website could work without APC using PHP 5.6. What is needed to do the latter is a php.ini file with a few lines in it, so you could run sites with different requirements inside the exact same account.
