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 efficient for scripts with large source code and could accelerate such a site up to three times. PHP websites are dynamic and whenever a user opens some page, the script connects to a database in order to retrieve some content, after that the code is parsed and compiled prior to it being shown to the website visitor. If the output code does not change however, that is the case with sites that show the same content at all times, these actions trigger unnecessary reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the previously compiled code and delivers it whenever visitors browse an Internet site, so the database doesn't need to be accessed and the program code doesn't need to be parsed and compiled repeatedly, which consequently reduces the site loading time. The module can be very effective for informational Internet sites, blogs, portfolios, etcetera.
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 set up on our advanced cloud platform and activating it will take you just a few clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. Since our system is extremely flexible, you'll be able to run websites with various system requirements and decide whether they will work with APC or not. For instance, you could allow APC only for a single version of PHP or you could do the latter for several of the releases that run on the platform. You may also decide if all Internet sites working with a given PHP version will use APC or if the latter will be active just for selected sites and not for all sites in the web hosting account. The aforementioned option is useful when you need to employ a different web accelerator for some of your Internet sites. These customizations are carried out without difficulty by using a php.ini file in selected domain or subdomain folders.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting
APC is provided with all semi-dedicated hosting packages because it's pre-installed on the cloud website hosting platform where your account shall be created. If you want to use this module, you will be able to activate it with just a single click inside your Hepsia Control Panel and it will be fully operational in a few minutes. As you may want to use some other web accelerators for selected websites, our outstanding platform will permit you to personalize the software environment in your account. You can activate APC for different releases of PHP or use it only for some websites and not for others. For example, a Drupal-based site could work with APC using PHP 5.4 and a WordPress website can work without APC using PHP 5.6. All it takes to do that is a php.ini file with a few lines in it, so you could run sites with different requirements from the same account.
