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 useful for scripts with large source code and could speed up such a website as much as three times. PHP sites are dynamic and whenever a user accesses some web page, the script connects to a database to retrieve some content, after that the code is parsed and compiled before it is displayed to the site visitor. In case the output code does not change however, which is the case with websites which display the very same content all the time, these actions trigger unnecessary reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the already compiled code and delivers it each time visitors browse a site, so the database doesn't have to be accessed and the code doesn't need to be parsed and compiled again and again, that consequently lowers the website loading time. The module could be quite useful for informational Internet sites, blogs, portfolios, and many others.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Website Hosting

You can use APC with every single cloud website hosting package that we offer because it is already present on our advanced cloud platform and enabling it will take you only a few clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. As our platform is extremely flexible, you'll be able to run sites with different requirements and decide whether they will use APC or not. For instance, you can activate APC only for one release of PHP or you can do this for several of the versions that run on the platform. You may also decide if all Internet sites using a given PHP version will use APC or if the latter will be enabled just for selected sites and not for all Internet sites in the web hosting account. The last option is useful when you'd like to employ a different web accelerator for some of your sites. These customizations are carried out with ease via a php.ini file in selected domain or subdomain folders.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Servers

APC is set up on the amazing cloud hosting platform where all semi-dedicated server accounts are created, so you will be able to employ it regardless of the package you choose. Activating the module is performed through the Hepsia Control Panel and takes only a click, so you will not need any skills or previous experience in order to take advantage of it. Since you will be able to work with different releases of PHP concurrently, you will be able to customize the software environment for each Internet site you host in the account if needed. A php.ini file with a couple of lines in it placed in a domain folder will permit you to set what release of PHP this particular site will use and whether APC should be on or off for it. These settings will have priority over the ones for the account in general, so you can run different scripts and use different web accelerators for websites that are in the same account.
