Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache web servers which 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 up to 3 times. PHP sites are dynamic and whenever a website visitor accesses a page, the script hooks up 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 doesn't change however, that is the case with sites which display the same content at all times, such actions trigger unnecessary 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 does not need to be parsed and compiled repeatedly, which in turn minimizes the website loading time. The module could be rather efficient for informational websites, blogs, portfolios, and so on.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Shared Website Hosting
APC is available with each shared website hosting plan that we offer and you can activate it with only a click from your Hepsia Control Panel if you would like to use it for your applications. Several minutes later the framework will be active and you will experience the considerably faster loading speed of your database-driven websites. Since we offer different versions of PHP which can also be selected through Hepsia, you'll even be able to to employ APC for scripts that require different versions of PHP within the very same account. Our state-of-the-art cloud hosting platform is extremely flexible, so in case you use another web accelerator for any Internet site and it interferes with APC, you will be able to activate or deactivate the aforementioned for a selected site only by using a php.ini file created in the domain or subdomain folder.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Servers
APC is provided with all semi-dedicated server solutions since it's pre-installed on the cloud website hosting platform where your account shall be created. If you want to use this module, you can enable it with just a single click inside your Hepsia Control Panel and it'll be fully functional within a few minutes. Since you may want to use some other web accelerators for selected sites, our state-of-the-art platform will permit you to customize the software environment inside your account. You will be able to activate APC for different releases of PHP or use it only for some websites and not for others. For example, a Drupal-based site could work with APC employing PHP 5.4 and a WordPress site can work without APC using PHP 5.6. What is needed to do the latter is a php.ini file with a few lines in it, so you'll be able to run websites with various requirements in the same account.
