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 efficient for scripts with large source code and will boost such a site up to 3 times. PHP websites are dynamic and whenever a website visitor opens a web page, the script hooks up to a database to get some content, and then the code is parsed and compiled prior to it being shown to the visitor. If the output code doesn't change however, which is the case with Internet sites which display the same content all the time, such actions trigger unneeded reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the previously compiled program code and delivers it any time visitors browse an Internet site, so the database doesn't have to be accessed and the code doesn't have to be parsed and compiled repeatedly, which in turn lowers the Internet site loading time. The module could be really effective for informational sites, blogs, portfolios, etc.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Website Hosting

APC is pre-installed on our next generation cloud platform, so you'll be able to use it for your applications regardless of the website hosting solution that you choose when you join us. The module can be activated from your Hepsia internet hosting Control Panel that is used to maintain the shared accounts and only several minutes later it will speed up your Internet sites because it'll begin caching their code. In case you would like to run websites with various system requirements or take advantage of specific web accelerators for any of them, you'll be able to customize the software environment by putting a php.ini file in the desired domain folder. In this way, you can enable or disable APC not only for a certain Internet site without affecting the other sites in the account, but also for a particular version of PHP because our platform supports multiple versions simultaneously.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Servers

APC is installed on the innovative cloud web hosting platform where all semi-dedicated server accounts are made, so you could use it regardless of the package you select. Activating the module is done through the Hepsia Control Panel and takes only a click, so you won't need any skills or earlier experience to be able to take advantage of it. As you will be able to work with different versions of PHP at once, you will be able to modify the software environment for each Internet site which you host in the account if required. A php.ini file with a few lines in it placed in a domain folder will permit you to set what release of PHP this specific site will use and whether APC has to be on or off for it. These settings will have priority over the ones for the account in general, so you can run various scripts and take advantage of various web accelerators for sites that are in the same account.
