Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache servers that is employed to cache the output code of script apps. It is very effective for scripts with large source code and can accelerate such a website up to 3 times. PHP websites are dynamic and whenever a website visitor accesses some page, the script hooks up to a database to retrieve some content, and then the code is parsed and compiled before it's displayed to the website visitor. In case the output code does not change however, that's the case with sites that display the very same content all of the time, such actions result in unnecessary reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the already compiled code and delivers it whenever visitors browse an Internet site, so the database does not have to be accessed and the code doesn't need to be parsed and compiled over and over again, that in turn lowers the Internet site loading time. The module could be quite effective for informational Internet sites, blogs, portfolios, and many others.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Web Hosting
You can use APC with each cloud web hosting plan that we provide since it's already present on our advanced cloud platform and activating it will take you only a few clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. Since our platform is extremely flexible, you'll be able to run sites with various system requirements and decide if they will use APC or not. For instance, you could activate APC only for a single release of PHP or you can do this for several of the versions that run on the platform. You can also decide if all sites using a given PHP version will use APC or if the latter will be enabled just for selected Internet sites and not for all Internet sites in the hosting account. The aforementioned option is useful if you wish to employ a different web accelerator for some of your sites. These customizations are carried out without any difficulty by using a php.ini file in selected domain or subdomain folders.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can use APC with all of our semi-dedicated hosting plans and activating the framework is done with a click inside the Hepsia Control Panel, so even when you have no prior experience, you could use it to quicken your Internet sites. As the cloud hosting platform where the semi-dedicated accounts are created is compatible with multiple PHP releases, you will have freedom regarding the scripts and web accelerators you'll be able to use. It will take you just a click to activate APC for one or a couple of PHP releases and by using a php.ini file in the domain/subdomain folders where you need settings that are not the same as the ones for the account as a whole, you could set what PHP release will be used and whether APC should be enabled or not. In this way, one site may use APC and PHP 5.3, for example, while another one may use some different accelerator and PHP 5.5.
