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 useful for scripts with large source code and could boost such a site as much as 3 times. PHP sites are dynamic and whenever a user accesses some web page, the script hooks up to a database to retrieve some content, then the code is parsed and compiled prior to it being shown to the guest. If the output code doesn't change however, that is the case with websites that display identical content all of the time, such actions result in unnecessary reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the already compiled code and delivers it each time visitors browse an Internet site, so the database doesn't have to be accessed and the code does not have to be parsed and compiled continuously, that consequently reduces the site loading time. The module could be extremely efficient for informational Internet sites, blogs, portfolios, and so on.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Website Hosting

You can use APC with each and every cloud website hosting plan that we provide because it is already present on our advanced cloud platform and enabling it will take you only a couple of clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. Since our system is extremely flexible, you can run Internet sites with different system requirements and decide whether they will work with APC or not. For instance, you can enable APC only for one release of PHP or you can do this for several of the versions that run on the platform. In addition, you can choose if all websites using a given PHP version will use APC or whether the latter will be enabled just for selected sites and not for all sites in the website hosting account. The last option is useful when you'd like to employ a different web accelerator for several of your Internet sites. These customizations are carried out with ease via a php.ini file in selected domain or subdomain folders.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Servers

APC is installed on the amazing cloud web hosting platform where all semi-dedicated server accounts are made, so you'll be able to employ it regardless of the package you choose. Activating the module is performed through the Hepsia Control Panel and takes just a mouse click, so you will not need any skills or earlier experience to be able to take full advantage of it. Since you will be able to work with different releases of PHP at the same time, you could customize the software environment for each Internet site which you host in the account if required. A php.ini file with a few lines in it placed in a domain folder will permit you to set what release of PHP this specific website will use and if APC needs to be on or off for it. These settings will have priority over the ones for the account as a whole, so you can run different scripts and employ various web accelerators for Internet sites that are in the same account.
