Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache web servers which is used to cache the output code of script apps. It is very effective for scripts with large source code and will boost such an Internet site up to three times. PHP sites are dynamic and every time a user accesses a web page, the script links to a database in order to retrieve some content, then the code is parsed and compiled prior to it being displayed to the guest. If the output code does not change however, that's the case with websites which show the exact same content at all times, such actions result in excessive reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the already compiled program code and delivers it whenever visitors browse a site, so the database doesn't have to be accessed and the code doesn't need to be parsed and compiled repeatedly, that consequently lowers the Internet site loading time. The module could be very helpful for informational sites, blogs, portfolios, and many others.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Shared Hosting

You can use APC with each shared hosting package that we provide since it is already present on our advanced cloud platform and activating it will take you only a few clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. As our platform is extremely flexible, you will be able to run Internet sites with various requirements and decide whether they will use APC or not. For instance, you can allow APC only for a single version of PHP or you can do this for several of the releases that run on the platform. You can also decide if all websites using a given PHP version will use APC or whether the latter will be enabled just for selected sites and not for all Internet sites in the hosting account. The last option is useful if you'd like to employ a different web accelerator for several of your sites. These customizations are performed with ease by using a php.ini file in selected domain or subdomain folders.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can take full advantage of APC with all our semi-dedicated hosting solutions and activating this framework is done with a mouse click inside the Hepsia Control Panel, so even when you lack prior experience, you'll be able to use it to boost your Internet sites. As the cloud internet hosting platform where the semi-dedicated accounts are set up supports multiple PHP releases, you will have freedom with regards to the scripts and web accelerators you will be able to employ. It will take you only a click to allow APC for one or several PHP releases and by using a php.ini file in the domain/subdomain folders where you need settings that are different from the ones for the account in general, you will be able to set what PHP release will be used and whether APC has to be enabled or not. In this way, one site can use APC and PHP 5.3, for instance, while another one can use another accelerator and PHP 5.5.
