Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache servers that is used to cache the output code of script apps. It is very useful for scripts with large source code and will accelerate such a site as much as 3 times. PHP websites are dynamic and whenever a website visitor accesses a webpage, the script hooks up to a database in order to get some content, after that the code is parsed and compiled before it's displayed to the guest. If the output code does not change however, that's the case with websites that display the very same content at all times, these actions result in unnecessary reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the previously compiled program code and delivers it each time visitors browse a website, so the database doesn't have to be accessed and the program code doesn't need to be parsed and compiled repeatedly, which consequently reduces the Internet site loading time. The module can be rather useful for informational Internet 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 web applications whatever the website hosting plan that you select when you sign up. The module can be enabled from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel which is used to manage the shared accounts and just several minutes later it will boost your websites as it'll start caching their program code. In case you want to run Internet sites with various system requirements or take advantage of different web accelerators for any of them, you will be able to customize the software environment by placing a php.ini file inside the desired domain folder. In this way, you could enable or disable APC not only for a particular Internet site without affecting the remaining websites in the account, but also for a particular version of PHP as our platform is compatible with multiple versions simultaneously.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting
APC is provided with all semi-dedicated hosting plans because it's pre-installed on the cloud website hosting platform where your account will be created. If you want to use this module, you can activate it with a single click from your Hepsia Control Panel and it will be fully functional in a few minutes. As you may need to use other web accelerators for selected websites, our state-of-the-art 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 only for some sites and not for others. For example, a Drupal-based site can function with APC using PHP 5.4 and a WordPress site can work without APC employing PHP 5.6. What is needed to do the aforementioned is a php.ini file with a few lines in it, so you will be able to run websites with different requirements inside the exact same account.
