Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache web servers that is used to cache the output code of script applications. It is very effective for scripts with large source code and will speed up such a site as much as 3 times. PHP sites are dynamic and each time a visitor accesses a page, the script connects to a database to get some content, and then the code is parsed and compiled before it is displayed to the guest. If the output code doesn't change however, that's the case with Internet sites that show identical 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 any time visitors browse an Internet site, so the database does not have to be accessed and the program code does not have to be parsed and compiled repeatedly, which consequently reduces the website loading time. The module can be very effective for informational sites, blogs, portfolios, and so on.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Shared Website Hosting

APC is pre-installed on our outstanding cloud platform, which means that you'll be able to use it for your applications regardless of the shared website hosting solution that you choose when you join us. The module can be enabled through the Hepsia internet hosting Control Panel that is used to handle the shared accounts and just a few minutes later it'll speed up your sites since it will start caching their code. In case you want to run Internet sites with different system requirements or employ different web accelerators for any of them, you'll be able to customize the software environment by putting a php.ini file in the preferred domain folder. In this way, you can enable or disable APC not only for a certain website without affecting the remaining sites in the account, but also for a specific version of PHP as our platform is compatible with multiple versions at the same time.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can take full advantage of APC with all our semi-dedicated server solutions and activating this framework is performed with a click in the Hepsia Control Panel, so even if you have no prior experience, you can use it in order to quicken your sites. As the cloud internet hosting platform where the semi-dedicated accounts are created supports multiple PHP releases, you will have freedom regarding the scripts and web accelerators you'll be able to employ. It will take you only a click to enable APC for one or a couple of 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 in general, you'll be able to set what PHP release will be used and whether APC should be enabled or not. This way, one website may use APC and PHP 5.3, for instance, while another one may use some other accelerator and PHP 5.5.
