Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache web servers which is employed to cache the output code of script apps. It is very effective for scripts with large source code and can boost such a website up to three times. PHP websites are dynamic and any time a user accesses some web page, the script hooks up to a database to get 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, which is the case with Internet sites that display the very same content all the time, such actions trigger excessive reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the previously compiled program code and delivers it any time visitors browse a website, so the database doesn't need to be accessed and the program code does not need to be parsed and compiled continuously, which consequently minimizes the site loading time. The module can be very efficient for informational sites, blogs, portfolios, and many others.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Shared Hosting
APC is provided with each and every shared hosting plan that we offer and you can activate it with just a click from your Hepsia Control Panel if you'd like to use it for your web apps. A couple of minutes later the framework will be active and you will be able to take advantage of the faster loading speed of your database-driven websites. As we provide several releases of PHP which can also be selected through Hepsia, you will even be able to use APC for scripts that need different versions of PHP within the very same account. Our high tech cloud hosting platform is very flexible, so in case you use an alternative web accelerator for any website and it disturbs APC, you'll be able to activate or deactivate the latter for a selected site only by using a php.ini file generated in the domain or subdomain folder.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can take advantage of APC with all of our semi-dedicated hosting solutions and activating the framework is done with a click from the Hepsia Control Panel, so even when you don't have any previous experience, you'll be able to use it in order to accelerate your Internet sites. As the cloud hosting platform where the semi-dedicated accounts are made is compatible with multiple PHP versions, you'll have flexibility regarding the scripts and web accelerators you will be able to employ. It will take you just a click to allow APC for one or several PHP versions and by using a php.ini file inside the domain/subdomain folders where you need settings that are not the same as the ones for the account as a whole, you could set what PHP release will be used and whether APC should be enabled or not. This way, one website can use APC and PHP 5.3, for instance, while another one may use some other accelerator and PHP 5.5.
