Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache web servers that is employed to cache the output code of script applications. It is very effective for scripts with large source code and will boost such a website as much as 3 times. PHP websites are dynamic and any time a visitor accesses a page, the script connects to a database in order to retrieve some content, after that the code is parsed and compiled before it's shown to the site visitor. In case the output code doesn't change however, that is the case with websites that show the exact same content all the time, such actions result in excessive reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the previously compiled code and delivers it whenever visitors browse an Internet site, so the database does not need to be accessed and the program code does not have to be parsed and compiled continuously, that consequently decreases the website loading time. The module could be extremely useful for informational Internet sites, blogs, portfolios, etc.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Hosting

You can use APC with each and every cloud hosting package that we provide because it's already installed on our advanced cloud platform and enabling it will take you just a few clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. As our system is rather flexible, you'll be able to run websites with various requirements and decide whether they will work with APC or not. For example, you can enable APC only for a single release of PHP or you can do the latter for several of the versions running on the platform. You may also select if all Internet sites working with a certain PHP version will use APC or whether the latter will be active only for selected websites and not for all Internet sites in the web hosting account. The last option is useful when you need to employ a different web accelerator for some of your websites. These customizations are carried out without difficulty by using a php.ini file in selected domain or subdomain folders.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can take full advantage of APC with our semi-dedicated server solutions and activating this framework is done with a click in the Hepsia Control Panel, so even when you don't have any previous experience, you will be able to use it in order to boost your websites. As the cloud hosting platform where the semi-dedicated accounts are created is compatible with multiple PHP releases, you'll have freedom regarding the scripts and web accelerators you can employ. It will take you only a click to allow APC for one or a couple of PHP releases and by using a php.ini file inside the domain/subdomain folders where you need settings that are different from the ones for the account as a whole, you can set what PHP release will be used and whether APC has to be allowed or not. In this way, one website can use APC and PHP 5.3, for instance, while another one can use another accelerator and PHP 5.5.
