Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache servers which is used to cache the output code of script apps. It is very effective for scripts with large source code and could boost such an Internet site up to three times. PHP websites are dynamic and any time a user accesses a web page, the script connects to a database to get some content, and then the code is parsed and compiled prior to it being displayed to the guest. If the output code does not change however, which is the case with sites that display the exact same content at all times, such actions trigger unnecessary reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the already compiled code and delivers it any time visitors browse a site, so the database doesn't need to be accessed and the program code does not need to be parsed and compiled continuously, which consequently decreases the Internet site loading time. The module could be rather useful for informational sites, blogs, portfolios, and many others.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Website Hosting
APC is pre-installed on our state-of-the-art cloud platform, so you'll be able to use it for your applications regardless of the website hosting package that you pick when you register. The module can be activated from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is used to take care of the shared accounts and just a couple of minutes later it will speed up your Internet sites as it will start caching their program code. If you need to run sites with different system requirements or use specific web accelerators for some of them, you can customize the software environment by putting a php.ini file in the preferred domain folder. In this way, 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 certain version of PHP because our platform is compatible with multiple versions simultaneously.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Servers
APC is available with all semi-dedicated server solutions since it's pre-installed on the cloud hosting platform where your account will be created. In case you wish to use this module, you'll be able to enable it with a single click from your Hepsia Control Panel and it will be fully functional within a few minutes. Since you may need to use other web accelerators for selected sites, our state-of-the-art platform will allow you to personalize the software environment inside your account. You will be able to activate APC for different releases of PHP or use it only for some sites and not for others. For instance, a Drupal-based site can function with APC using PHP 5.4 and a WordPress website could work without APC using PHP 5.6. All it takes to do that is a php.ini file with a few lines in it, so you'll be able to run Internet sites with different requirements in the exact same account.
