Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache servers which is used 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 as much as 3 times. PHP websites are dynamic and every time a visitor accesses a page, the script connects to a database in order to retrieve some content, after that the code is parsed and compiled prior to it being displayed to the guest. In case the output code does not change however, that is the case with Internet sites which display the same content all of the time, these actions trigger excessive reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the already compiled program code and delivers it any time visitors browse a site, so the database does not have to be accessed and the code does not have to be parsed and compiled again and again, which consequently minimizes the Internet site loading time. The module could be extremely effective for informational Internet sites, blogs, portfolios, etcetera.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Shared Hosting
APC is available with every single shared hosting
package that we offer and you could activate it with just a click from your Hepsia Control Panel if you want to use it for your applications. Several minutes later the framework will be working and you'll experience the faster loading speed of your database-driven websites. Since we provide several releases of PHP which can also be selected through Hepsia, you will even be able to employ APC for scripts that need different versions of PHP inside the same account. Our leading-edge cloud Internet hosting platform is extremely adaptable, so in case you use an alternative web accelerator for any website and it disturbs APC, you'll be able to activate or deactivate the latter for a selected site only by using a php.ini file generated in the domain or subdomain folder.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You will be able to use APC for every script application that is run on your new semi-dedicated hosting
because the module is pre-installed on the cloud hosting platform where the account will be generated. Activating or deactivating APC for the account takes a single click from the Hepsia Control Panel, but if needed, you could use the module just for particular Internet sites. This is possible due to the versatility of our cloud platform - several versions of PHP run on it at the same time, so with a php.ini file placed in a site folder, you'll be able to pick what version will be used for this particular site and whether APC needs to be enabled or disabled. Employing such a file permits you to use settings which are different from the standard ones for your account, so you'll be able to take full advantage of APC for many scripts where the module makes a difference and not for others where you may use another type of web accelerator.
