Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache web servers that is employed to cache the output code of script apps. It is very efficient for scripts with large source code and could accelerate such an Internet site up to 3 times. PHP sites are dynamic and every time a user accesses some webpage, the script connects to a database to get some content, and then the code is parsed and compiled prior to it being shown to the visitor. In case the output code does not change however, that is the case with Internet sites that display the very same content all of the time, such 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 a website, so the database doesn't have to be accessed and the program code does not need to be parsed and compiled over and over again, which consequently decreases the website loading time. The module could be rather helpful for informational websites, blogs, portfolios, etc.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Shared Hosting

APC is available with each and every shared hosting solution that we offer and you could enable it with only a click from your Hepsia Control Panel if you want to use it for your web apps. Several minutes later the framework will be working and you'll experience the quicker loading speed of your database-driven websites. As we offer different versions of PHP that could also be selected through Hepsia, you will even be able to employ APC for scripts that need different versions of PHP inside the very same account. Our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform is extremely flexible, so in case you use another web accelerator for any website and it disrupts APC, you will be able to activate or deactivate the latter for a particular site only by using a php.ini file created in the domain or subdomain folder.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to use APC for each script application which is run on your new semi-dedicated hosting since the module is already installed on the cloud hosting platform where the account will be generated. Activating or deactivating APC for the entire account takes one click from the Hepsia Control Panel, but if needed, you could use the module only for particular websites. This is possible as a result of the versatility of our cloud platform - multiple releases of PHP run on it concurrently, so with a php.ini file placed in a website folder, you can choose what version will be used for this specific Internet site and whether APC should be enabled or disabled. Using such a file enables you to use settings that are different from the ones for your account, so you could take full advantage of APC for some scripts where the module makes a difference and not for others where you may use some other kind of web accelerator.
