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 useful for scripts with large source code and will accelerate such an Internet site up to three times. PHP websites are dynamic and whenever a visitor accesses some webpage, the script hooks up to a database to retrieve some content, and then the code is parsed and compiled before it's shown to the guest. In case the output code does not change however, which is the case with websites that show the very same content at all times, these actions result in unnecessary reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the already compiled program code and delivers it every time visitors browse a site, so the database doesn't need to be accessed and the program code does not need to be parsed and compiled over and over again, that consequently minimizes the site loading time. The module could be really effective for informational sites, blogs, portfolios, and many others.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Website Hosting
APC is pre-installed on our cutting-edge cloud platform, so you'll be able to use it for your web applications regardless of the cloud website hosting solution that you select when you register. The module can be activated through the Hepsia internet hosting Control Panel which is used to take care of the shared accounts and just a couple of minutes later it will speed up your sites as it'll start caching their program code. In case you wish to run sites with various system requirements or employ specific web accelerators for any of them, you will be able to customize the software environment by placing a php.ini file in the preferred domain folder. This way, you can enable or disable APC not just for a specific Internet site without affecting the remaining Internet sites in the account, but also for a particular version of PHP since our platform is compatible with multiple versions simultaneously.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Servers
APC is set up on the state-of-the-art cloud hosting platform where all semi-dedicated server accounts are created, so you'll be able to use it whatever the plan you select. Enabling the module is performed from the Hepsia Control Panel and takes only a click, so you won't need any skills or earlier experience to take full advantage of it. As you will be able to use several releases of PHP at the same time, you'll be able to modify the software environment for every single site which you host in the account if needed. A php.ini file with a couple of lines in it placed in a domain folder will allow you to set what release of PHP this Internet site will use and if APC needs to be on or off for it. These settings will have priority over the ones for the account as a whole, so you could run various scripts and employ different web accelerators for Internet sites which are in the same account.
