Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache servers which is used to cache the output code of script applications. It is very efficient for scripts with large source code and will accelerate such an Internet site as much as 3 times. PHP sites are dynamic and every time a user opens a webpage, 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. In case the output code doesn't change however, that's the case with Internet sites that show the exact same content all of the time, such actions result in unnecessary 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 continuously, which in turn minimizes the website loading time. The module can be pretty effective for informational sites, blogs, portfolios, etcetera.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Website Hosting

APC is pre-installed on our next generation cloud platform, so you'll be able to use it for your applications irrespective of the cloud website hosting package that you choose when you join us. The module can be activated through the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel which is used to control the shared accounts and only a few minutes later it'll speed up your sites because it will begin caching their program code. In case you want to run websites with various system requirements or take advantage of specific web accelerators for some of them, you can customize the software environment by placing a php.ini file inside the desired domain folder. Thus, you can enable or disable APC not just for a certain Internet site without affecting the remaining sites in the account, but also for a specific version of PHP because our platform supports multiple versions at the same time.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Servers

APC is provided with all semi-dedicated server plans as it's pre-installed on the cloud hosting platform where your account shall be created. In case you wish to use this module, you can activate it with a single click inside your Hepsia Control Panel and it'll be fully operational in a couple of minutes. Since you may want to use alternative web accelerators for selected sites, our leading-edge platform will allow you to customize the software environment inside your account. You'll be able to activate APC for different versions of PHP or use it just for some Internet sites and not for others. For instance, a Drupal-based site could work with APC using PHP 5.4 and a WordPress website can function without APC using PHP 5.6. What is needed to do the latter is a php.ini file with a few lines in it, so you'll be able to run websites with different requirements in the very same account.
