Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache servers which is employed to cache the output code of script applications. It is very useful for scripts with large source code and can speed up such an Internet site as much as three times. PHP websites are dynamic and each time a user opens a page, the script links to a database to retrieve some content, and then the code is parsed and compiled prior to it being shown to the guest. If the output code doesn't change however, that's the case with sites which show the very same content at all times, these actions result in unnecessary reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the already compiled 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 have to be parsed and compiled repeatedly, which in turn decreases the website loading time. The module could be pretty effective for informational Internet sites, blogs, portfolios, and so on.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Shared Website Hosting
APC is pre-installed on our cutting-edge cloud platform, which means that you will be able to use it for your web applications regardless of the shared website hosting
package that you select when you register. The module can be activated through the Hepsia internet hosting Control Panel that is used to manage the shared accounts and just several minutes later it will boost your Internet sites since it'll begin caching their code. If you want to run websites with different system requirements or use different web accelerators for any of them, you will be able to customize the software environment by putting a php.ini file inside the preferred domain folder. In this way, you could enable or disable APC not only for a certain Internet site without affecting the other Internet sites in the account, but also for a particular version of PHP since our platform supports multiple versions simultaneously.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can take full advantage of APC with our semi-dedicated server
plans and activating this framework is done with a mouse click from the Hepsia Control Panel, so even when you don't have any prior experience, you will be able to use it in order to boost your websites. As the cloud internet hosting platform where the semi-dedicated accounts are created supports multiple PHP versions, you'll have freedom regarding the scripts and web accelerators you can use. It will take you just a click to allow APC for one or a couple of PHP releases and by using a php.ini file in the domain/subdomain folders where you need settings that are different from the ones for the account in general, you can set what PHP version will be used and whether APC has to be allowed or not. In this way, one site could use APC and PHP 5.3, for instance, whereas another one can use a different accelerator and PHP 5.5.
