Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache web servers which is employed to cache the output code of script applications. It is very useful for scripts with large source code and could boost such a site as much as 3 times. PHP websites are dynamic and any time a visitor accesses a page, the script links to a database to get some content, then the code is parsed and compiled before it's displayed to the guest. In case the output code does not change however, which is the case with Internet sites that display the exact same content at all times, such actions trigger excessive reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the previously compiled code and delivers it each time visitors browse an Internet site, so the database doesn't need to be accessed and the code does not have to be parsed and compiled continuously, that consequently decreases the Internet site loading time. The module could be really effective for informational sites, blogs, portfolios, and many others.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Shared Hosting

You will be able to employ APC for your web apps with all of the shared hosting plans that we provide because it's pre-installed on our cloud web hosting platform. Activating it will take only a single click inside the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with our shared solutions and several minutes later it will begin caching the program code of your software apps. Our platform is rather flexible, so you will be able to use different configurations depending on the system requirements of your scripts. For instance, you will be able to activate APC for a couple of releases of PHP for the entire account and select the version that each website can use, or you can have the very same version of PHP, but activate or deactivate APC just for specified sites. You can do this by putting a php.ini file with a line of program code in the domain or subdomain folder where you need the custom configuration.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting

APC is provided with all semi-dedicated hosting plans because it's pre-installed on the cloud hosting platform where your account shall be created. If you wish to use this module, you will be able to enable it with just a single click in your Hepsia Control Panel and it'll be fully functional within a couple of minutes. Since you may need to use some other web accelerators for selected sites, our cutting-edge platform will enable you to customize the software environment in your account. You can activate APC for different versions of PHP or use it just for some Internet sites and not for others. For instance, a Drupal-based website can function with APC using PHP 5.4 and a WordPress site can 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 can run websites with different requirements from the same account.
