Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache servers that is employed to cache the output code of script applications. It is very effective for scripts with large source code and can boost such an Internet site up to 3 times. PHP websites are dynamic and every time a visitor accesses a web page, the script connects to a database in order to get some content, and then the code is parsed and compiled prior to it being shown to the website visitor. In case the output code does not change however, that's the case with sites that display the same content all the time, such actions result in unneeded reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the already compiled code and delivers it every time visitors browse an Internet site, so the database doesn't need to be accessed and the code doesn't need to be parsed and compiled continuously, which consequently lowers the site loading time. The module can be really helpful for informational sites, blogs, portfolios, and so on.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Shared Hosting

APC is pre-installed on our next generation cloud platform, which means that you'll be able to use it for your applications regardless of the shared hosting solution that you select when you register. The module can be activated from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is used to take care of the shared accounts and only a few minutes later it will boost your websites as it'll begin caching their code. In case you need to run sites with various system requirements or use different web accelerators for some of them, you will be able to 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 specific site without affecting the remaining websites in the account, but also for a specific version of PHP since our platform is compatible with multiple versions at the same time.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting

APC is available with all semi-dedicated hosting packages because it's pre-installed on the cloud hosting platform where your account shall be created. In case you'd like to use this module, you can enable it with just a single click in your Hepsia Control Panel and it'll be fully functional within a few minutes. Since you may want to use other web accelerators for selected Internet sites, our advanced platform will enable you to personalize the software environment in your account. You'll be able to activate APC for different releases of PHP or use it only for some Internet sites and not for others. For instance, a Drupal-based website can work with APC employing PHP 5.4 and a WordPress website could work without APC using PHP 5.6. What is needed to do that is a php.ini file with a few lines in it, so you will be able to run sites with different requirements from the very same account.
