Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache web servers that is used to cache the output code of script applications. It is very effective for scripts with large source code and could boost such an Internet site as much as 3 times. PHP websites are dynamic and each time a website visitor accesses a 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 guest. If the output code does not change however, which is the case with Internet sites which show the 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 program code does not need to be parsed and compiled continuously, which consequently lowers the site loading time. The module could be extremely helpful for informational websites, blogs, portfolios, etc.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Web Hosting

APC is pre-installed on our next generation cloud platform, so you'll be able to use it for your applications whatever the web hosting plan that you select when you join us. The module can be enabled from the Hepsia internet hosting Control Panel which is used to maintain the shared accounts and only a couple of minutes later it'll boost your Internet sites as it will start caching their code. In case you would like to run sites with different system requirements or take advantage of different web accelerators for some of them, you'll be able to customize the software environment by putting a php.ini file in the desired domain folder. Thus, you can enable or disable APC not just for a certain site without affecting the other sites in the account, but also for a certain version of PHP because our platform supports multiple versions at the same time.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting

APC is provided with all semi-dedicated hosting plans because 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 activate it with just a single click in your Hepsia Control Panel and it'll be fully functional in a couple of minutes. As you may want to use other web accelerators for selected Internet sites, our advanced platform will enable you to customize the software environment in your account. You'll be able to activate APC for different versions of PHP or use it just for some websites and not for others. For instance, a Drupal-based Internet site can work with APC employing PHP 5.4 and a WordPress site could work without APC employing PHP 5.6. What is needed to do the aforementioned is a php.ini file with a couple of lines in it, so you'll be able to run Internet sites with different requirements from the exact same account.
