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 effective for scripts with large source code and can speed up such a site as much as three times. PHP sites are dynamic and any time a website visitor accesses a 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 website visitor. In case the output code doesn't change however, that is the case with websites that show the exact same content at all times, such actions trigger unneeded reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the previously compiled program code and delivers it each time visitors browse a website, so the database doesn't need to be accessed and the code does not need to be parsed and compiled again and again, which in turn minimizes the Internet site loading time. The module could be very useful for informational websites, blogs, portfolios, and many others.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Website Hosting
APC is available with every single cloud website hosting package that we offer and you can activate it with only a click through your Hepsia Control Panel if you want to use it for your applications. A few minutes later the framework will be active and you will notice the quicker loading speed of your database-driven Internet sites. As we offer several releases of PHP which could also be selected through Hepsia, you will even be able to employ APC for scripts which require different versions of PHP within the same account. Our state-of-the-art cloud hosting platform is very flexible, so in case you use a different web accelerator for any Internet site and it disrupts APC, you will be able to activate or deactivate the latter for a specific site only by using a php.ini file created in the domain or subdomain folder.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting
APC is installed on the innovative cloud hosting platform where all semi-dedicated hosting accounts are created, so you'll be able to use it whatever the plan you pick. Activating the module is performed from the Hepsia Control Panel and takes just a mouse click, so you won't need any skills or earlier experience in order to take advantage of it. As you will be able to use several releases of PHP simultaneously, you will be able to customize the software environment for each site that you host in the account if needed. A php.ini file with a few lines in it placed in a domain folder will allow you to set what version of PHP this particular site will use and if APC has to be on or off for it. These settings will have priority over the ones for the account in general, so you could run various scripts and take advantage of various web accelerators for Internet sites that are in the same account.
