Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache servers that is used to cache the output code of script applications. It is very effective for scripts with large source code and could boost such an Internet site up to three times. PHP websites are dynamic and any time a user accesses a page, the script connects to a database to retrieve some content, after that the code is parsed and compiled before it's shown to the guest. If the output code doesn't change however, that's the case with sites which display identical content all the time, these actions result in needless reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the previously compiled code and delivers it whenever visitors browse a site, so the database doesn't have to be accessed and the code does not need to be parsed and compiled again and again, which consequently lowers the site loading time. The module could be pretty useful for informational Internet sites, blogs, portfolios, and so on.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Shared Web Hosting

You can use APC with every single shared web hosting package that we provide since it's already present on our advanced cloud platform and activating it will take you just a couple of clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. Since our system is really flexible, you will be able to run Internet sites with different system requirements and decide if they will use APC or not. For example, you can enable APC only for a single version of PHP or you could do the latter for several of the versions running on the platform. You can also select if all Internet sites using a specific PHP version will use APC or if the latter will be active only for selected websites and not for all sites in the hosting account. The aforementioned option is useful when you would like to employ a different web accelerator for some of your sites. These customizations are performed without any difficulty via a php.ini file in selected domain or subdomain folders.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can take advantage of APC with our semi-dedicated hosting solutions and activating this framework is done with a click inside the Hepsia Control Panel, so even when you lack prior experience, you could use it to quicken your websites. As the cloud hosting platform where the semi-dedicated accounts are set up is compatible with multiple PHP versions, you'll have flexibility with regards to the scripts and web accelerators you can use. It will take you only a click to activate 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 should be allowed or not. In this way, one Internet site can use APC and PHP 5.3, for instance, and another one can use a different accelerator and PHP 5.5.
