Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache web servers which is used to cache the output code of script applications. It is very efficient for scripts with large source code and will accelerate such a website as much as 3 times. PHP websites are dynamic and any time a website visitor opens some web page, the script hooks up to a database to retrieve some content, after that the code is parsed and compiled prior to it being shown to the visitor. If the output code does not change however, that is the case with websites that display the very same content all of the time, these actions result in unnecessary reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the previously compiled program code and delivers it any time visitors browse a website, so the database doesn't need to be accessed and the code doesn't need to be parsed and compiled continuously, that in turn reduces the site loading time. The module could be really efficient for informational Internet sites, blogs, portfolios, and many others.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Hosting

You can use APC with each and every cloud hosting package that we provide because it is already present on our advanced cloud platform and activating it will take you only a couple of clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. As our platform is rather flexible, you'll be able to run sites with different requirements and decide if they will use APC or not. For example, you could allow APC only for one version of PHP or you can do the latter for several of the versions running on the platform. It's also possible to choose if all websites working with a particular PHP version will use APC or if the latter will be active only for selected sites and not for all sites in the hosting account. The aforementioned option is useful when you would like to employ a different web accelerator for some of your sites. 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 Servers

APC is provided with all semi-dedicated server packages because it's pre-installed on the cloud website hosting platform where your account will be created. In case you wish to use this module, you can activate it with a single click from your Hepsia Control Panel and it will be fully operational within a few minutes. As you may need to use alternative web accelerators for selected sites, our state-of-the-art platform will allow you to customize the software environment in your account. You can activate APC for different versions of PHP or use it only for some websites and not for others. For example, a Drupal-based site can work with APC using PHP 5.4 and a WordPress website can function without APC employing PHP 5.6. What is needed to do the latter is a php.ini file with several lines in it, so you will be able to run Internet sites with various requirements inside the exact same account.
