Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache web servers which is used to cache the output code of script apps. It is very efficient for scripts with large source code and will accelerate such a website as much as three times. PHP websites are dynamic and whenever a visitor opens a webpage, the script hooks up to a database in order to retrieve some content, and then the code is parsed and compiled before it's shown to the guest. If the output code does not change however, which is the case with sites that display the very same content at all times, such actions trigger excessive reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the previously compiled code and delivers it whenever visitors browse a site, so the database doesn't need to be accessed and the code does not have to be parsed and compiled over and over again, that consequently minimizes the Internet site loading time. The module could be extremely efficient for informational websites, blogs, portfolios, and many others.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Hosting

APC is available with each hosting package that we offer and you could enable it with only a click from your Hepsia Control Panel if you would like to use it for your web apps. A few minutes later the framework will be active and you will experience the quicker loading speed of your database-driven Internet sites. As we provide different releases of PHP that could also be selected through Hepsia, you'll even be able to to use APC for scripts which require different versions of PHP inside the very same account. Our advanced cloud web hosting platform is extremely adaptable, so in case you use another web accelerator for any website and it interferes with APC, you could activate or deactivate the aforementioned for a particular site only by using a php.ini file created in the domain or subdomain folder.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Servers

APC is set up on the amazing cloud Internet hosting platform where all semi-dedicated server accounts are created, so you will be able to employ it regardless of the package you select. Enabling the module is done through the Hepsia Control Panel and takes just a click, so you will not need any skills or previous experience in order to take advantage of it. Since you'll be able to work with different releases of PHP concurrently, you will be able to modify the software environment for each and every website you host in the account if required. A php.ini file with several lines in it placed in a domain folder will enable you to set what version of PHP this site will use and if APC should be on or off for it. These settings will have priority over the ones for the account in general, so you can run different scripts and use various web accelerators for Internet sites that are in the same account.
