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 efficient for scripts with large source code and could boost such an Internet site as much as 3 times. PHP sites are dynamic and every time a visitor opens a web page, the script connects to a database to retrieve some content, and then the code is parsed and compiled before it is displayed to the website visitor. In case the output code doesn't change however, that's the case with websites that show the same content at all times, such actions result in unnecessary reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the previously compiled program code and delivers it every time visitors browse a website, so the database doesn't have to be accessed and the program code doesn't have to be parsed and compiled repeatedly, which in turn reduces the site loading time. The module could be extremely useful for informational sites, blogs, portfolios, and so on.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Shared Web Hosting
APC is pre-installed on our leading-edge cloud platform, so you can use it for your applications whatever the shared web hosting solution that you select when you join us. The module can be activated through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel which is used to handle the shared accounts and just a few minutes later it'll boost your sites as it'll begin caching their code. In case you want to run websites with different system requirements or use different web accelerators for any of them, you can customize the software environment by placing a php.ini file in the desired domain folder. In this way, you can enable or disable APC not only for a specific website without affecting the remaining websites in the account, but also for a certain version of PHP because our platform is compatible with multiple versions at the same time.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting
APC is available with all semi-dedicated hosting solutions because it is pre-installed on the cloud website hosting platform where your account will be created. If you want to use this module, you can activate it with just a single click inside your Hepsia Control Panel and it'll be fully operational in a couple of minutes. Since you may need to use other web accelerators for selected sites, our cutting-edge platform will enable you to customize the software environment inside your account. You'll be able to activate APC for different versions of PHP or use it only for some Internet sites and not for others. For instance, a Drupal-based Internet site could work with APC employing PHP 5.4 and a WordPress website can work without APC using PHP 5.6. All it takes to do the latter is a php.ini file with several lines in it, so you'll be able to run websites with different requirements from the exact same account.
