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 can accelerate such a website up to three times. PHP sites are dynamic and any time a website visitor opens a webpage, the script links to a database to get some content, and then the code is parsed and compiled before it is shown to the guest. If the output code does not change however, that's the case with websites that show the same content all the time, these actions result in unneeded reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the previously compiled program code and delivers it any time visitors browse a website, so the database doesn't need to be accessed and the code doesn't need to be parsed and compiled again and again, which in turn minimizes the website loading time. The module can be extremely helpful for informational websites, blogs, portfolios, and many others.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Hosting

APC is pre-installed on our cutting-edge cloud platform, which means that you will be able to use it for your applications irrespective of the hosting package that you choose when you join us. The module can be enabled through the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel that is used to manage the shared accounts and just several minutes later it'll speed up your sites because it'll start caching their program code. If you need to run sites with different system requirements or employ different web accelerators for any of them, you could customize the software environment by placing a php.ini file inside the desired domain folder. This way, you could enable or disable APC not just for a certain site without affecting the remaining websites in the account, but also for a specific version of PHP since our platform supports multiple versions simultaneously.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Servers

APC is provided with all semi-dedicated server plans since it is pre-installed on the cloud hosting platform where your account shall be created. If you'd like to use this module, you will be able to activate it with just a single click from your Hepsia Control Panel and it'll be fully operational within a couple of minutes. As you may need to use some other web accelerators for selected Internet sites, our outstanding platform will enable you to personalize the software environment inside your account. You'll be able to activate APC for different versions of PHP or use it just for some websites and not for others. For example, a Drupal-based website could work with APC employing PHP 5.4 and a WordPress website can function without APC using PHP 5.6. All it takes to do that is a php.ini file with a couple of lines in it, so you could run sites with various requirements inside the very same account.
