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 effective for scripts with large source code and can boost such an Internet site as much as three times. PHP sites are dynamic and each time a user accesses a webpage, the script hooks up to a database to get some content, and then the code is parsed and compiled before it's displayed to the guest. In case the output code does not change however, which is the case with Internet sites which show the very same content all the time, such 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 doesn't have to be accessed and the code doesn't have to be parsed and compiled repeatedly, which consequently reduces the site loading time. The module can be quite effective for informational Internet sites, blogs, portfolios, etcetera.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Shared Website Hosting

You will be able to employ APC for your web applications with all of the shared website hosting packages that we offer because it is pre-installed on our cloud web hosting platform. Activating it will take just a mouse click inside the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with our shared plans and several minutes later it'll start caching the program code of your software applications. Our platform is rather flexible, so you will be able to use different configurations depending on the system requirements of the scripts. For example, you'll be able to activate APC for several releases of PHP for the whole account and pick the version that each Internet site can use, or you can have the same version of PHP, but enable or disable APC just for specified websites. You can do this by putting a php.ini file with a line of program code inside the domain or subdomain folder where you require the custom setup.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can take full advantage of APC with all our semi-dedicated server solutions and activating the framework is performed with a click from the Hepsia Control Panel, so even when you don't have any previous experience, you can use it to boost your Internet sites. As the cloud hosting platform where the semi-dedicated accounts are made is compatible with multiple PHP releases, you will have flexibility regarding the scripts and web accelerators you could employ. It will take you just a click to activate APC for one or a couple of PHP versions and by using a php.ini file in the domain/subdomain folders where you need settings which are not the same as the ones for the account in general, you could set what PHP release will be used and whether APC should be allowed or not. In this way, one Internet site can use APC and PHP 5.3, for example, whereas another one could use some other accelerator and PHP 5.5.
