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 can boost such an Internet site as much as 3 times. PHP sites are dynamic and any time a user opens a page, the script connects to a database to get some content, then the code is parsed and compiled before it is displayed to the guest. In case the output code does not change however, which is the case with websites which show the same content all the time, these actions result in unnecessary reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the previously compiled program code and delivers it any time visitors browse a site, so the database doesn't have to be accessed and the program code doesn't need to be parsed and compiled over and over again, that in turn reduces the website loading time. The module could be quite effective for informational websites, blogs, portfolios, etc.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Hosting

APC is available with each hosting package that we offer and you can activate it with only a click from your Hepsia Control Panel if you wish to use it for your web apps. A couple of minutes later the framework will be active and you will notice the faster loading speed of your database-driven sites. Since we provide different releases of PHP which can also be selected through Hepsia, you will even be able to employ APC for scripts that require different versions of PHP within the same account. Our high tech cloud web hosting platform is extremely flexible, so if you use another web accelerator for any website and it interferes with APC, you'll be able to activate or deactivate the latter for a specific site only by using a php.ini file generated in the domain or subdomain folder.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting

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