Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache web servers which is employed to cache the output code of script apps. It is very efficient for scripts with large source code and will boost such a website up to 3 times. PHP websites are dynamic and each time a website visitor accesses some web page, the script hooks up to a database to get some content, after that the code is parsed and compiled prior to it being shown to the website visitor. If the output code does not change however, which is the case with Internet sites which show the very same content all the time, such actions result in unneeded reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the previously compiled program code and delivers it every time visitors browse a website, so the database does not have to be accessed and the code doesn't need to be parsed and compiled again and again, that consequently minimizes the Internet site loading time. The module can be rather helpful for informational sites, blogs, portfolios, etc.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Shared Hosting
You can use APC with each and every shared hosting
plan that we offer since it's already installed on our advanced cloud platform and activating it will take you just a few clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. As our system is quite flexible, you will be able to run sites with different 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 could do this for several of the releases running on our platform. You can also choose if all sites working with a particular PHP version will use APC or if the latter will be active only for selected Internet sites and not for all Internet sites in the hosting account. The last option is useful if you'd like to employ a different web accelerator for some of your sites. These customizations are carried out 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. If you wish to use this module, you can activate it with just a single click inside your Hepsia Control Panel and it will be fully operational within a few minutes. As you may need to use other web accelerators for selected sites, our cutting-edge platform will allow you to customize the software environment inside your account. You can activate APC for different releases of PHP or use it just for some Internet sites and not for others. For instance, a Drupal™
-based site can function with APC using PHP 5.4 and a WordPress website could work without APC employing PHP 5.6. All it takes to do the aforementioned is a php.ini file with a few lines in it, so you can run websites with various requirements inside the same account.
