Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache web servers which is used to cache the output code of script apps. It is very efficient for scripts with large source code and can boost such a website as much as 3 times. PHP sites are dynamic and any time a user accesses some web page, the script connects to a database in order to get some content, then the code is parsed and compiled before it is displayed to the guest. In case the output code doesn't change however, that's the case with Internet sites which display identical content all the time, these actions trigger unneeded reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the already compiled program code and delivers it every 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 again and again, that in turn lowers the website loading time. The module can be quite effective for informational Internet sites, blogs, portfolios, etc.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Shared Web Hosting

APC is pre-installed on our next generation cloud platform, therefore you can use it for your web applications whatever the shared web hosting solution that you pick when you register. The module can be activated through the Hepsia internet hosting Control Panel that is used to take care of the shared accounts and just a few minutes later it will speed up your sites as it will begin caching their program code. In case you wish to run websites with various system requirements or take advantage of different web accelerators for any of them, you could customize the software environment by placing a php.ini file inside the preferred domain folder. In this way, you could enable or disable APC not just for a particular site without affecting the remaining websites in the account, but also for a specific version of PHP as our platform supports multiple versions simultaneously.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting

APC is provided with all semi-dedicated hosting solutions because it's pre-installed on the cloud hosting platform where your account will be created. In case you would like to use this module, you can enable it with a single click inside your Hepsia Control Panel and it will be fully functional within a couple of minutes. Since you may need to use alternative web accelerators for selected Internet sites, our cutting-edge platform will permit you to customize the software environment inside your account.

For instance, a Drupal-based Internet site could work with APC using PHP 5.4 and a WordPress site could work without APC using PHP 5.6. All it takes to do that is a php.ini file with a couple of lines in it, so you could run Internet sites with different requirements in the exact same account.
