Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache web servers that is employed to cache the output code of script apps. It is very useful for scripts with large source code and can accelerate such a site as much as three times. PHP sites are dynamic and every time a user accesses some web page, the script links to a database in order to get some content, and then the code is parsed and compiled prior to it being shown to the guest. If the output code doesn't change however, that's the case with sites which show the very same content at all times, such actions trigger excessive reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the previously compiled program code and delivers it every 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 continuously, that in turn decreases the site loading time. The module can be very efficient for informational websites, blogs, portfolios, etcetera.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Web Hosting
APC is pre-installed on our state-of-the-art cloud platform, which means that you'll be able to use it for your applications whatever the cloud web hosting package that you choose when you sign up. The module can be enabled from your Hepsia internet hosting Control Panel that is used to take care of the shared accounts and just several minutes later it'll speed up your sites because it'll start caching their code. If you wish to run websites with various system requirements or employ specific web accelerators for some of them, you'll be able to customize the software environment by putting a php.ini file inside the preferred domain folder. This way, you can enable or disable APC not just for a particular website without affecting the other sites in the account, but also for a specific version of PHP because our platform is compatible with multiple versions simultaneously.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Servers
APC is installed on the amazing cloud hosting platform where all semi-dedicated server accounts are made, so you'll be able to use it whatever the package you select. Activating the module is performed through the Hepsia Control Panel and takes only a mouse click, so you will not need any skills or previous experience in order to take full advantage of it. As you'll be able to work with different versions of PHP simultaneously, you'll be able to modify the software environment for each and every Internet site you host in the account if necessary. A php.ini file with a few lines in it placed in a domain folder will allow you to set what version of PHP this site will use and whether APC needs to be on or off for it. These settings will have priority over those for the account in general, so you can run various scripts and employ different web accelerators for Internet sites which are in the same account.
