Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache web servers which is employed to cache the output code of script applications. It is very efficient for scripts with large source code and could boost such a site as much as three times. PHP websites are dynamic and every time a website visitor opens a web page, the script connects to a database to get some content, after that the code is parsed and compiled before it's shown to the site visitor. In case the output code does not change however, that is the case with sites that display identical content all the time, such actions trigger unneeded reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the already compiled program code and delivers it any time visitors browse a site, so the database does not need to be accessed and the program code doesn't have to be parsed and compiled over and over again, which in turn decreases the website loading time. The module could be extremely useful for informational websites, blogs, portfolios, and so on.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Shared Web Hosting
APC is provided with each and every shared web hosting plan that we offer and you could activate it with only a click from your Hepsia Control Panel if you wish to use it for your web applications. A couple of minutes later the framework will be working and you'll notice the considerably faster loading speed of your database-driven Internet sites. Since we provide different releases of PHP which could also be selected from Hepsia, you'll even be able to to employ APC for scripts which require different versions of PHP in the very same account. Our high tech cloud web hosting platform is very adaptable, so in case you use some other web accelerator for any Internet site and it interferes with 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 Hosting
You can take advantage of APC with all of our semi-dedicated hosting packages and activating this framework is done with a mouse click from the Hepsia Control Panel, so even if you lack prior experience, you will be able to use it in order to boost your sites. As the cloud internet hosting platform where the semi-dedicated accounts are created is compatible with multiple PHP releases, you will have flexibility with regards to the scripts and web accelerators you can employ. It will take you only a click to allow APC for one or a couple of PHP releases and by using a php.ini file inside the domain/subdomain folders where you need settings that are not the same as the ones for the account in general, you can set what PHP version will be used and whether APC needs to be enabled or not. This way, one website could use APC and PHP 5.3, for instance, and another one could use another accelerator and PHP 5.5.
