Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache servers which is used to cache the output code of script apps. It is very effective for scripts with large source code and will speed up such a site as much as three times. PHP sites are dynamic and every time a user accesses some web page, the script connects to a database in order to retrieve some content, then the code is parsed and compiled before it is displayed to the guest. In case the output code doesn't change however, that's the case with websites which show the exact same content at all times, these actions result in unneeded reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the already compiled code and delivers it each time visitors browse a site, so the database doesn't have to be accessed and the code doesn't need to be parsed and compiled again and again, which in turn reduces the website loading time. The module can be extremely effective for informational sites, blogs, portfolios, and many others.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Shared Hosting

APC is pre-installed on our next generation cloud platform, therefore you'll be able to use it for your applications irrespective of the shared hosting plan that you pick when you sign up. The module can be activated from your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel that is used to control the shared accounts and only a few minutes later it will boost your websites because it'll begin caching their code. If you wish to run websites with various system requirements or take advantage of different web accelerators for any of them, you can customize the software environment by placing a php.ini file in the preferred domain folder. Thus, you could enable or disable APC not only for a certain website without affecting the remaining sites in the account, but also for a certain version of PHP as our platform is compatible with multiple versions at the same time.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Servers

APC is provided with all semi-dedicated server packages as it's pre-installed on the cloud website hosting platform where your account shall be created. In case you want to use this module, you can activate it with just a single click from your Hepsia Control Panel and it'll be fully operational within a couple of minutes. As you may want to use alternative web accelerators for selected websites, our advanced platform will enable you to personalize the software environment inside your account. You can activate APC for different versions of PHP or use it just for some sites and not for others. For example, a Drupal-based website can function with APC employing PHP 5.4 and a WordPress site could work without APC using PHP 5.6. All it takes to do the latter is a php.ini file with several lines in it, so you will be able to run Internet sites with different requirements in the very same account.
