Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache servers that is employed to cache the output code of script applications. It is very effective for scripts with large source code and will accelerate such a website as much as three times. PHP websites are dynamic and each time a visitor accesses some webpage, the script links to a database to get some content, after that the code is parsed and compiled prior to it being displayed to the site visitor. In case the output code doesn't change however, which is the case with sites that show the exact same content all the time, these actions trigger unneeded reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the previously compiled program code and delivers it every time visitors browse a website, so the database does not need to be accessed and the code does not need to be parsed and compiled over and over again, which in turn minimizes the site loading time. The module can be extremely efficient for informational Internet sites, blogs, portfolios, and many others.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Shared Hosting

APC is pre-installed on our leading-edge cloud platform, which means that you will be able to use it for your web applications regardless of the shared hosting plan that you choose when you sign up. The module can be activated from the Hepsia internet hosting Control Panel which is used to maintain the shared accounts and only a few minutes later it'll boost your sites as it will start caching their code. In case you would like to run websites with different system requirements or take advantage of different web accelerators for any of them, you will be able to customize the software environment by placing a php.ini file in the preferred domain folder. In this way, you could enable or disable APC not only for a specific website without affecting the other websites in the account, but also for a specific version of PHP since our platform is compatible with multiple versions simultaneously.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting

APC is set up on the state-of-the-art cloud Internet hosting platform where all semi-dedicated hosting accounts are made, so you will be able to employ it irrespective of the package you get. Enabling the module is performed through the Hepsia Control Panel and takes only a mouse click, so you will not need any skills or prior experience to be able to take advantage of it. Since you will be able to use different releases of PHP simultaneously, you could customize the software environment for each and every site which you host in the account if necessary. A php.ini file with several lines in it placed in a domain folder will permit you to set what release of PHP this specific Internet site will use and if APC needs to be on or off for it. These settings will have priority over the ones for the account in general, so you could run various scripts and take advantage of different web accelerators for sites which are in the same account.
