Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache servers that is used to cache the output code of script apps. It is very useful for scripts with large source code and could speed up such a website as much as 3 times. PHP websites are dynamic and every time a visitor opens some webpage, the script links to a database in order to retrieve some content, and then the code is parsed and compiled before it is shown to the guest. In case the output code does not change however, which is the case with websites which show the exact same content at all times, these actions trigger excessive reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the previously compiled program code and delivers it whenever visitors browse a site, so the database doesn't need to be accessed and the code doesn't need to be parsed and compiled over and over again, which consequently reduces the Internet site loading time. The module could be really helpful for informational websites, blogs, portfolios, etc.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Hosting

APC is provided with each hosting package that we offer and you could activate it with just a click from your Hepsia Control Panel if you want to use it for your applications. A few minutes later the framework will be active and you will be able to take advantage of the quicker loading speed of your database-driven websites. Since we offer several versions of PHP that can also be selected from Hepsia, you'll even be able to to employ APC for scripts which need different versions of PHP within the very same account. Our high tech cloud Internet hosting platform is very flexible, so in case you use some other web accelerator for any Internet site and it disrupts APC, you will be able to activate or deactivate the aforementioned for a particular site only by using a php.ini file created in the domain or subdomain folder.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to use APC for every script application which runs on your new semi-dedicated hosting since the module is already installed on the cloud hosting platform where the account will be generated. Activating or deactivating APC for the account requires a click inside the Hepsia Control Panel, but if necessary, you can use the module only for particular websites. This is possible due to the versatility of our cloud platform - different versions of PHP run on it concurrently, so with a php.ini file placed in a site folder, you can pick what release will be used for this specific Internet site and whether APC needs to be enabled or disabled. Using such a file allows you to use settings that are different from the ones for your account, so you will be able to take full advantage of APC for many scripts where the module makes a difference and not for others where you may employ some other type of web accelerator.
