Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache web servers which is employed to cache the output code of script apps. It is very useful for scripts with large source code and can boost such an Internet site up to three times. PHP websites are dynamic and any time a website visitor accesses a page, the script hooks up to a database to get some content, then the code is parsed and compiled before it's displayed to the guest. If the output code doesn't change however, that's the case with Internet sites that show the exact same content all the time, these actions trigger unneeded reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the already compiled code and delivers it each time visitors browse an Internet site, so the database doesn't need to be accessed and the code doesn't need to be parsed and compiled repeatedly, that consequently reduces the website loading time. The module could be rather efficient for informational Internet sites, blogs, portfolios, and many others.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Web Hosting
You can use APC with each and every cloud web hosting plan that we offer as it's already present on our advanced cloud platform and activating it will take you only a couple of clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. As our platform is quite flexible, you will be able to run Internet sites with different requirements and decide if they will use APC or not. For instance, you could activate APC only for a single release of PHP or you could do the latter for several of the versions running on our platform. You can also select if all Internet sites using a particular PHP version will use APC or whether the latter will be active just for selected websites and not for all Internet sites in the hosting account. The last option is useful when you intend to employ a different web accelerator for several of your websites. These customizations are done with ease by using a php.ini file in selected domain or subdomain folders.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting
APC is available with all semi-dedicated hosting plans since it is pre-installed on the cloud hosting platform where your account will be created. In case you'd like to use this module, you will be able to activate it with a single click from your Hepsia Control Panel and it'll be fully operational within a couple of minutes. Since you may want to use some other web accelerators for selected sites, our outstanding platform will enable you to customize the software environment inside your account. You'll be able to activate APC for different releases of PHP or use it just for some Internet sites and not for others. For example, a Drupal-based Internet site can 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 aforementioned is a php.ini file with a couple of lines in it, so you could run websites with various requirements in the very same account.
