Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache servers which is used to cache the output code of script apps. It is very efficient for scripts with large source code and could accelerate such a site as much as 3 times. PHP websites are dynamic and each time a user opens a web page, the script connects to a database to get some content, and then the code is parsed and compiled prior to it being displayed to the site visitor. If the output code does not change however, that is the case with Internet sites which show the exact same content all of the time, these actions trigger needless reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the previously compiled program code and delivers it any time visitors browse an Internet site, so the database does not have to be accessed and the program code doesn't need to be parsed and compiled over and over again, that consequently decreases the Internet site loading time. The module can be pretty effective for informational Internet sites, blogs, portfolios, etc.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Hosting

You can use APC with each and every cloud hosting package that we provide since it is already present on our advanced cloud platform and activating it will take you just a few clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. Since our system is extremely flexible, you can run sites with various system requirements and decide whether they will use APC or not. For example, you could activate APC only for one release of PHP or you could do the latter for several of the versions running on the platform. In addition, you can select if all websites working with a certain PHP version will use APC or whether the latter will be active only for selected websites and not for all sites in the hosting account. The last option is useful when you'd like to employ a different web accelerator for several of your Internet sites. These customizations are done without any difficulty through a php.ini file in selected domain or subdomain folders.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can take full advantage of APC with all our semi-dedicated hosting plans and activating the framework is done with a click in the Hepsia Control Panel, so even if you lack prior experience, you'll be able to use it to boost your websites. As the cloud hosting platform where the semi-dedicated accounts are made supports multiple PHP versions, you'll have freedom regarding the scripts and web accelerators you could employ. It will take you only a click to activate APC for one or several PHP releases and by using a php.ini file inside the domain/subdomain folders where you need settings which are not the same as the ones for the account as a whole, you could set what PHP version will be used and whether APC needs to be enabled or not. In this way, one site may use APC and PHP 5.3, for example, while another one may use a different accelerator and PHP 5.5.
