Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache web servers that is employed to cache the output code of script apps. It is very useful for scripts with large source code and can boost such an Internet site as much as 3 times. PHP sites are dynamic and every time a visitor opens a webpage, the script hooks up to a database in order to retrieve some content, then the code is parsed and compiled before it is shown to the visitor. If the output code doesn't change however, which is the case with sites that show the same content at all times, such actions trigger unnecessary reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the previously compiled code and delivers it whenever visitors browse a website, so the database doesn't need to be accessed and the code does not have to be parsed and compiled continuously, that consequently lowers the website loading time. The module can be really efficient for informational Internet sites, blogs, portfolios, etc.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Web Hosting

APC is pre-installed on our next generation cloud platform, therefore you will be able to use it for your web applications regardless of the cloud web hosting solution that you choose when you sign up. The module can be enabled through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is used to take care of the shared accounts and only a few minutes later it will speed up your websites as it will begin caching their program code. In case you wish to run Internet sites with different system requirements or use different web accelerators for any of them, you could customize the software environment by placing a php.ini file inside the desired domain folder. Thus, you could enable or disable APC not just for a certain Internet site without affecting the other websites in the account, but also for a certain version of PHP as our platform supports multiple versions simultaneously.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting

APC is available with all semi-dedicated hosting packages since it's pre-installed on the cloud website hosting platform where your account will be created. In case you wish to use this module, you'll be able to activate it with a single click in your Hepsia Control Panel and it'll be fully operational within a couple of minutes. As you may need to use other web accelerators for selected websites, our state-of-the-art platform will permit you to customize the software environment inside your account. You will be able to activate APC for different releases of PHP or use it only for some Internet sites and not for others. For instance, a Drupal-based Internet site can function with APC using PHP 5.4 and a WordPress site can function without APC employing PHP 5.6. All it takes to do the latter is a php.ini file with a couple of lines in it, so you will be able to run Internet sites with various requirements inside the exact same account.
