Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache servers which is employed to cache the output code of script applications. It is very efficient for scripts with large source code and can speed up such an Internet site as much as 3 times. PHP websites are dynamic and each time a user accesses some webpage, the script connects to a database in order to get some content, after that the code is parsed and compiled before it's displayed to the site visitor. In case the output code does not change however, that is the case with Internet sites which show the same content all of the time, such actions result in unneeded reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the previously compiled program code and delivers it every time visitors browse an Internet site, so the database does not need to be accessed and the code does not need to be parsed and compiled again and again, that in turn decreases the website loading time. The module could be rather helpful for informational sites, blogs, portfolios, and many others.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Shared Web Hosting

APC is available with each and every shared web hosting solution that we offer and you can enable it with just a click through your Hepsia Control Panel if you'd like to use it for your applications. A few minutes later the framework will be active and you will experience the considerably faster loading speed of your database-driven sites. As we offer several versions of PHP which could also be selected through Hepsia, you'll even be able to to use APC for scripts that need different versions of PHP within the same account. Our next generation cloud Internet hosting platform is extremely adaptable, so in case you use an alternative web accelerator for any website and it interferes with APC, you'll be able to activate or deactivate the latter for a specific site only by using a php.ini file created in the domain or subdomain folder.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting

APC is provided with all semi-dedicated hosting solutions since it is pre-installed on the cloud hosting platform where your account will be created. If you'd like to use this module, you'll be able to enable it with a single click in your Hepsia Control Panel and it'll be fully operational in a few minutes. Since you may need to use alternative web accelerators for selected websites, our cutting-edge platform will enable you to customize the software environment inside your account. You'll be able to activate APC for different releases of PHP or use it only for some websites and not for others. For example, a Drupal-based site can work with APC using PHP 5.4 and a WordPress site can function without APC using PHP 5.6. What is needed to do the aforementioned is a php.ini file with several lines in it, so you'll be able to run Internet sites with various requirements in the very same account.
