Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache web servers that is used to cache the output code of script apps. It is very efficient for scripts with large source code and can boost such an Internet site as much as three times. PHP sites are dynamic and every time a website visitor opens a web page, the script hooks up to a database to retrieve some content, after that the code is parsed and compiled before it is shown to the visitor. In case the output code does not change however, that is the case with sites that show the same content all the time, such actions trigger needless reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the already compiled code and delivers it whenever visitors browse an Internet site, so the database does not need to be accessed and the code doesn't have to be parsed and compiled again and again, which consequently decreases the site loading time. The module can be quite useful for informational sites, blogs, portfolios, etcetera.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Shared Website Hosting
You will be able to use APC for your web applications with all of the shared website hosting plans that we provide because it is pre-installed on our cloud web hosting platform. Turning it on will take only a click in the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with our shared plans and a couple of minutes later it will begin caching the code of your applications. Our platform is extremely flexible, so you will be able to use several configurations depending on the system requirements of your scripts. For instance, you could activate APC for a couple of versions of PHP for the whole account and set the version that each site can use, or you can have the exact same version of PHP, but activate or deactivate APC only for specific Internet sites. You can do this by putting a php.ini file with a line of code inside the domain or subdomain folder where you require the custom configuration.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can take full advantage of APC with our semi-dedicated hosting solutions and activating this framework is done with a click in the Hepsia Control Panel, so even when you have no prior experience, you will be able to use it to boost your Internet sites. As the cloud internet hosting platform where the semi-dedicated accounts are set up is compatible with multiple PHP releases, you'll have freedom with regards to the scripts and web accelerators you'll be able to employ. It will take you just a click to allow APC for one or a couple of PHP releases and by using a php.ini file in the domain/subdomain folders where you need settings that are not the same as the ones for the account in general, you'll be able to set what PHP release will be used and whether APC needs to be enabled or not. This way, one website can use APC and PHP 5.3, for example, while another one may use some other accelerator and PHP 5.5.
