Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache web servers which is employed to cache the output code of script applications. It is very efficient for scripts with large source code and can boost such an Internet site as much as 3 times. PHP websites are dynamic and every time a user opens some webpage, the script links to a database in order to get some content, after that the code is parsed and compiled before it is displayed to the guest. If the output code does not change however, that's the case with Internet sites which display the same content all of the time, such actions result in needless 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 doesn't need to be accessed and the program code does not need to be parsed and compiled over and over again, that consequently lowers the site loading time. The module could be very useful for informational websites, blogs, portfolios, and many others.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Hosting

You can use APC with each cloud hosting package that we offer as it is already present on our advanced cloud platform and activating it will take you just a couple of clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. Since our platform is extremely flexible, you'll be able to run Internet sites with different requirements and decide whether they will use APC or not. For example, you could enable APC only for one version of PHP or you could do the latter for several of the releases that run on our platform. You may also select if all Internet sites using a given PHP version will use APC or if the latter will be active only for selected Internet sites and not for all sites in the hosting account. The last option is useful when you need to employ a different web accelerator for some of your Internet sites. These customizations are performed with ease through a php.ini file in selected domain or subdomain folders.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can use 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 don't have any previous experience, you can use it in order to accelerate your Internet sites. As the cloud internet hosting platform where the semi-dedicated accounts are made supports multiple PHP releases, you will have flexibility regarding the scripts and web accelerators you will be able to use. 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 in the domain/subdomain folders where you need settings which are not the same as the ones for the account in general, you could set what PHP release will be used and whether APC needs to be allowed or not. This way, one Internet site could use APC and PHP 5.3, for instance, whereas another one could use another accelerator and PHP 5.5.
