Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache servers that is used to cache the output code of script applications. It is very efficient for scripts with large source code and could boost such a site up to three times. PHP websites are dynamic and every time a visitor opens a webpage, the script links to a database in order to get some content, then the code is parsed and compiled before it's shown to the guest. If the output code does not change however, which is the case with sites which show the exact same content all of the time, such actions result in unnecessary reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the previously compiled code and delivers it whenever visitors browse a website, so the database does not need to be accessed and the program code doesn't need to be parsed and compiled continuously, that in turn lowers the website loading time. The module could be extremely efficient for informational websites, blogs, portfolios, etc.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Hosting

You can use APC with every single cloud hosting package that we provide as it is already set up on our advanced cloud platform and enabling it will take you only a couple of clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. As our system is extremely flexible, you can run sites with different requirements and decide whether they will work with APC or not. For example, you could activate APC only for one release of PHP or you can do the latter for several of the versions running on our platform. You may also choose if all websites using a particular PHP version will use APC or whether the latter will be active just for selected Internet sites and not for all websites in the web hosting account. The aforementioned option is useful when you'd like to employ a different web accelerator for some of your websites. These customizations are performed with ease via 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 solutions as it is pre-installed on the cloud website hosting platform where your account shall be created. If you want to use this module, you can enable it with a single click inside your Hepsia Control Panel and it'll be fully functional within a few minutes. Since you may need to use alternative web accelerators for selected Internet sites, our outstanding platform will enable you to customize the software environment inside your account. You can activate APC for different releases of PHP or use it just for some websites and not for others. For example, a Drupal-based Internet site can 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 could run Internet sites with different requirements from the exact same account.
