Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache web servers that is used to cache the output code of script applications. It is very useful for scripts with large source code and will boost such an Internet site up to 3 times. PHP websites are dynamic and each time a visitor opens a web page, the script links to a database to retrieve some content, then the code is parsed and compiled before it is displayed to the website visitor. If the output code does not change however, which is the case with sites that show identical content all the time, these actions trigger unneeded reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the previously compiled code and delivers it any time visitors browse a site, so the database does not have to be accessed and the program code doesn't have to be parsed and compiled continuously, that consequently minimizes the website loading time. The module could be very useful for informational Internet sites, blogs, portfolios, etcetera.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Hosting

APC is provided with each and every cloud hosting solution that we offer and you could activate it with only a click from your Hepsia Control Panel if you would like to use it for your web applications. A couple of minutes later the framework will be active and you'll notice the quicker loading speed of your database-driven websites. Since we provide several versions of PHP which could also be selected from Hepsia, you will even be able to use APC for scripts that need different versions of PHP in the very same account. Our high tech cloud web hosting platform is very flexible, so in case you use a different web accelerator for any Internet site and it disrupts APC, you'll be able to activate or deactivate the aforementioned for a selected 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 innovative cloud Internet hosting platform where all semi-dedicated server accounts are made, so you'll be able to use it regardless of the package you pick. Activating the module is performed from the Hepsia Control Panel and takes only a click, so you won't need any skills or prior experience to take advantage of it. Since you will be able to employ different releases of PHP at the same time, you could modify the software environment for each Internet site that you host in the account if required. A php.ini file with several lines in it placed in a domain folder will permit you to set what version of PHP this website will use and if APC needs to be on or off for it. These settings will have priority over those for the account in general, so you could run various scripts and use different web accelerators for sites which are in the same account.
