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 effective for scripts with large source code and could speed up such a site up to 3 times. PHP websites are dynamic and whenever a visitor opens some web page, the script links to a database to retrieve 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 is the case with websites which show identical content at all times, such actions trigger needless reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the previously compiled program code and delivers it any time visitors browse a site, so the database does not need to be accessed and the code does not need to be parsed and compiled continuously, which consequently decreases the Internet site loading time. The module could be quite effective for informational Internet sites, blogs, portfolios, etc.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Website Hosting

APC is pre-installed on our next generation cloud platform, so you can use it for your applications regardless of the cloud website hosting plan that you select when you join us. The module can be enabled from your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel that is used to manage the shared accounts and only a couple of minutes later it'll speed up your websites as it'll begin caching their program code. In case you would like to run websites with different system requirements or take advantage of different web accelerators for some of them, you could customize the software environment by putting a php.ini file inside the preferred domain folder. Thus, you could enable or disable APC not just for a specific site without affecting the other sites in the account, but also for a specific version of PHP because our platform is compatible with multiple versions simultaneously.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting

APC is available with all semi-dedicated hosting packages as it is pre-installed on the cloud website hosting platform where your account shall 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 functional in a few minutes.

You will be able to activate APC for different releases of PHP or use it just for some Internet sites and not for others. For instance, a Drupal-based website could work with APC employing PHP 5.4 and a WordPress site could work without APC employing PHP 5.6. All it takes to do the aforementioned is a php.ini file with a few lines in it, so you could run sites with different requirements from the exact same account.
