Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache servers that is employed to cache the output code of script apps. It is very effective for scripts with large source code and could speed up such an Internet site up to 3 times. PHP sites are dynamic and whenever a visitor opens some page, the script connects to a database to get some content, after that the code is parsed and compiled before it's shown to the site visitor. In case the output code does not change however, that is the case with Internet sites that show identical content all of the time, these actions trigger 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 does not have to be accessed and the code doesn't need to be parsed and compiled continuously, which consequently minimizes the site loading time. The module could be rather helpful for informational websites, blogs, portfolios, and so on.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Hosting

APC is pre-installed on our leading-edge cloud platform, which means that you will be able to use it for your applications whatever the cloud hosting solution that you select when you join us. The module can be activated through the Hepsia internet hosting Control Panel that is used to manage the shared accounts and only several minutes later it'll speed up your websites since it'll start caching their code. If you need to run Internet sites with various system requirements or employ specific web accelerators for any of them, you could customize the software environment by placing a php.ini file inside the desired domain folder. Thus, you can enable or disable APC not just for a particular website without affecting the other Internet sites in the account, but also for a specific version of PHP as our platform is compatible with multiple versions at the same time.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting

APC is available with all semi-dedicated hosting plans because it's pre-installed on the cloud hosting platform where your account will be created. If you would like to use this module, you can activate it with just a single click in your Hepsia Control Panel and it will be fully operational in a few minutes. As you may need to use alternative web accelerators for selected websites, our advanced platform will enable you to personalize the software environment in your account. You will be able to activate APC for different versions of PHP or use it only for some Internet sites and not for others. For example, a Drupal-based site could work with APC employing PHP 5.4 and a WordPress website could work without APC using PHP 5.6. All it takes to do that 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 same account.
