Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache servers that is used 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 three times. PHP websites are dynamic and each time a visitor accesses some webpage, the script hooks up to a database in order to get some content, after that the code is parsed and compiled prior to it being displayed to the visitor. In case the output code doesn't 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 already compiled program code and delivers it whenever visitors browse a website, so the database doesn't need to be accessed and the code does not have to be parsed and compiled again and again, that in turn minimizes the Internet site loading time. The module can be very effective for informational Internet sites, blogs, portfolios, and so on.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Hosting
APC is pre-installed on our cutting-edge cloud platform, which means that you can use it for your web applications regardless of the hosting plan that you select when you join us. The module can be enabled through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel which is used to control the shared accounts and just a few minutes later it'll boost your websites because it will start caching their code. If you would like to run Internet sites with various system requirements or employ specific web accelerators for some of them, you can customize the software environment by placing a php.ini file inside the desired domain folder. Thus, you can enable or disable APC not only for a specific Internet site without affecting the other websites in the account, but also for a particular version of PHP since our platform is compatible with multiple versions simultaneously.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can take full advantage of APC with all of our semi-dedicated hosting packages and activating the framework is done with a mouse click in the Hepsia Control Panel, so even if you lack prior experience, you could use it to quicken your Internet sites. As the cloud internet hosting platform where the semi-dedicated accounts are created supports multiple PHP releases, you'll have flexibility regarding the scripts and web accelerators you will be able to use. It will take you just a click to activate APC for one or several PHP versions 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 will be able to set what PHP release will be used and whether APC should be allowed or not. In this way, one Internet site may use APC and PHP 5.3, for example, while another one may use some different accelerator and PHP 5.5.
