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 could speed up such a site as much as 3 times. PHP websites are dynamic and every time a website visitor accesses a web page, the script links to a database to get some content, then the code is parsed and compiled before it is shown to the guest. If the output code does not change however, that is the case with websites which show identical content at all times, these actions result in needless reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the already compiled 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 have to be parsed and compiled again and again, which consequently minimizes the website loading time. The module can be really useful for informational websites, blogs, portfolios, etcetera.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Hosting

APC is pre-installed on our state-of-the-art cloud platform, which means that you will be able to use it for your applications regardless of the cloud hosting solution that you pick when you register. The module can be activated through the Hepsia internet hosting Control Panel that is used to manage the shared accounts and only a couple of minutes later it'll speed up your Internet sites because it will start caching their program code. If you wish to run websites with various system requirements or use specific web accelerators for some of them, you can customize the software environment by putting a php.ini file in the desired domain folder. Thus, you can enable or disable APC not just for a certain Internet site without affecting the other websites in the account, but also for a specific version of PHP as our platform is compatible with multiple versions simultaneously.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Servers

APC is provided with all semi-dedicated server packages as it is pre-installed on the cloud hosting platform where your account shall be created. In case you want to use this module, you will be able to enable it with a single click inside your Hepsia Control Panel and it'll be fully functional in a couple of minutes. Since you may need to use other web accelerators for selected websites, our outstanding platform will allow you to customize the software environment inside your account. You'll 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 can function with APC employing PHP 5.4 and a WordPress website can work without APC employing PHP 5.6. What is needed to do that is a php.ini file with several lines in it, so you could run Internet sites with different requirements from the very same account.
