Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache servers that is employed to cache the output code of script applications. It is very effective for scripts with large source code and will accelerate such a website up to 3 times. PHP websites are dynamic and each time a website visitor accesses some web page, the script connects to a database to get some content, then the code is parsed and compiled before it's displayed to the site visitor. If the output code doesn't change however, that's the case with websites that show identical 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 each time visitors browse a site, so the database does not need to be accessed and the program code doesn't have to be parsed and compiled over and over again, which in turn reduces the website loading time. The module could be quite effective for informational websites, blogs, portfolios, etcetera.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Website Hosting

You can use APC with every single cloud website hosting package that we offer as it's already set up on our advanced cloud platform and activating it will take you just a couple of clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. Since our platform is really flexible, you can run sites with different requirements and decide if they will work with APC or not. For instance, you can allow APC only for a single release of PHP or you could do the latter for several of the releases running on our platform. You can also select if all websites using a certain PHP version will use APC or whether the latter will be active only for selected sites and not for all sites in the website hosting account. The aforementioned option is useful when you intend to employ a different web accelerator for several of your sites. These customizations are carried out effortlessly through a php.ini file in selected domain or subdomain folders.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can take full advantage of APC with all our semi-dedicated hosting packages and activating the framework is performed with a mouse click from the Hepsia Control Panel, so even if you don't have any previous experience, you'll be able to use it to quicken your sites. As the cloud internet hosting platform where the semi-dedicated accounts are made is compatible with multiple PHP releases, you will have freedom with regards to the scripts and web accelerators you can employ. It will take you just a click to allow APC for one or several PHP releases and by using a php.ini file inside the domain/subdomain folders where you need settings which are different from the ones for the account in general, you can set what PHP release will be used and whether APC has to be enabled or not. In this way, one Internet site could use APC and PHP 5.3, for example, whereas another one can use some different accelerator and PHP 5.5.
