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 speed up such an Internet site up to three times. PHP sites are dynamic and each time a user accesses some webpage, the script links to a database in order to get some content, after that the code is parsed and compiled before it's displayed to the visitor. If the output code does not change however, which is the case with sites that display identical content all the time, such actions trigger unneeded 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 over and over again, which in turn decreases the website loading time. The module can be rather helpful for informational Internet sites, blogs, portfolios, and many others.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Shared Website Hosting

You can use APC with every single shared website hosting plan that we offer because it is already installed on our advanced cloud platform and enabling it will take you just a couple of clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. As our platform is quite flexible, you will be able to run sites with different system requirements and decide whether they will work with APC or not. For instance, you can activate APC only for one version of PHP or you could do the latter for several of the releases running on our platform. You may also choose if all Internet sites using a certain PHP version will use APC or whether the latter will be enabled only for selected sites and not for all sites in the hosting account. The aforementioned option is useful when you need to employ a different web accelerator for several of your websites. These customizations are done without difficulty by using a php.ini file in selected domain or subdomain folders.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting

APC is provided with all semi-dedicated hosting packages because it is pre-installed on the cloud website hosting platform where your account will be created. If you'd like to use this module, you will be able to enable it with a single click from your Hepsia Control Panel and it will be fully operational in a couple of minutes. As you may want to use alternative web accelerators for selected sites, our cutting-edge platform will allow you to personalize the software environment in your account. You will be able to activate APC for different releases of PHP or use it just for some Internet sites and not for others. For instance, a Drupal-based Internet site could work with APC employing PHP 5.4 and a WordPress website can work without APC employing PHP 5.6. All it takes to do the latter is a php.ini file with several lines in it, so you can run Internet sites with various requirements inside the exact same account.
