Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache servers which is used to cache the output code of script apps. It is very efficient for scripts with large source code and can speed up such an Internet site as much as three times. PHP websites are dynamic and whenever a website visitor accesses some webpage, the script hooks up to a database to retrieve some content, after that the code is parsed and compiled before it's shown to the site visitor. If the output code doesn't change however, that's the case with websites that display the exact same content all of the time, these actions result in unneeded reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the already compiled program code and delivers it each time visitors browse an Internet site, so the database does not have to be accessed and the code does not need to be parsed and compiled over and over again, which in turn lowers the website loading time. The module could be really useful for informational websites, blogs, portfolios, and many others.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Shared Web Hosting

APC is pre-installed on our next generation cloud platform, so you can use it for your web applications whatever the shared web hosting solution that you choose when you sign up. The module can be enabled from your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel which is used to maintain the shared accounts and just a few minutes later it'll speed up your sites as it will start caching their code. In case you would like to run Internet sites with various system requirements or use different web accelerators for some of them, you could customize the software environment by putting a php.ini file inside the preferred domain folder. In this way, you can enable or disable APC not only for a certain site without affecting the other Internet sites in the account, but also for a specific version of PHP since our platform is compatible with multiple versions at the same time.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Servers

APC is set up on the amazing cloud web hosting platform where all semi-dedicated server accounts are made, so you'll be able to use it regardless of the plan you get. Activating the module is done from the Hepsia Control Panel and takes only a click, so you will not need any skills or earlier experience in order to take full advantage of it. Since you will be able to use several versions of PHP at the same time, you could customize the software environment for each and every website that you host in the account if necessary. A php.ini file with a few lines in it placed in a domain folder will enable you to set what version of PHP this website will use and whether APC has to be on or off for it. These settings will have priority over those for the account in general, so you can run various scripts and use different web accelerators for websites which are in the same account.
