Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache servers which is employed to cache the output code of script apps. It is very useful for scripts with large source code and can speed up such an Internet site up to 3 times. PHP websites are dynamic and every time a website visitor accesses some webpage, the script connects to a database to get some content, and then the code is parsed and compiled before it's displayed to the website visitor. If the output code doesn't change however, which is the case with sites which show identical content at all times, such actions trigger unnecessary reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the already compiled code and delivers it each time visitors browse a website, so the database doesn't 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 can be quite effective for informational sites, blogs, portfolios, and many others.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Hosting

APC is provided with every single cloud hosting plan that we offer and you could activate it with only a click through your Hepsia Control Panel if you wish to use it for your applications. A few minutes later the framework will be active and you'll experience the quicker loading speed of your database-driven Internet sites. Since we offer different versions of PHP which can also be selected through Hepsia, you will even be able to use APC for scripts that need different versions of PHP in the same account. Our next generation cloud Internet hosting platform is extremely flexible, so if you use some other web accelerator for any Internet site and it disturbs APC, you could activate or deactivate the aforementioned 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

You’ll be able to use APC for every script application which is run on your new semi-dedicated hosting since the module is pre-installed on the cloud hosting platform where the account will be created. Activating or deactivating APC for the entire account requires one click in the Hepsia Control Panel, but if necessary, you could use the module just for particular sites. This is possible as a result of the flexibility of our cloud platform - several versions of PHP run on it simultaneously, so with a php.ini file placed in a website folder, you'll be able to pick what version will be used for this particular Internet site and whether APC has to be enabled or disabled. Using such a file enables you to use settings which are different from the ones for your account, so you can take full advantage of APC for some scripts where the module will make a difference and not for others where you can use another kind of web accelerator.
