Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache servers which is used to cache the output code of script apps. It is very effective for scripts with large source code and will speed up such a website as much as three times. PHP websites are dynamic and any time a website visitor accesses some webpage, the script connects to a database to retrieve some content, and then the code is parsed and compiled before it is displayed to the visitor. If the output code doesn't change however, that's the case with websites which display the exact same content at all times, these actions trigger needless reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the already compiled code and delivers it any time visitors browse a site, so the database doesn't have to be accessed and the program code doesn't have to be parsed and compiled over and over again, that in turn decreases the Internet site loading time. The module could be rather useful for informational websites, blogs, portfolios, and many others.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Hosting
APC is available with every single hosting solution that we offer and you could activate it with only a click from your Hepsia Control Panel if you want to use it for your applications. Several minutes later the framework will be active and you'll be able to take advantage of the faster loading speed of your database-driven websites. Since we offer several releases of PHP which can also be selected from Hepsia, you will even be able to employ APC for scripts that need different versions of PHP inside the very same account. Our next generation cloud Internet hosting platform is extremely flexible, so if you use a different web accelerator for any website and it disrupts APC, you will be able to activate or deactivate the latter for a certain site only by using a php.ini file generated in the domain or subdomain folder.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting
APC is set up on the innovative cloud web hosting platform where all semi-dedicated hosting accounts are created, so you could employ it regardless of the plan you select. Activating the module is done from the Hepsia Control Panel and takes only a click, so you will not need any skills or earlier experience to be able to take advantage of it. As you will be able to employ several releases of PHP at once, you could modify the software environment for each site which you host in the account if required. A php.ini file with several lines in it placed in a domain folder will allow you to set what version of PHP this particular website will use and whether APC should be on or off for it. These settings will have priority over those for the account in general, so you could run different scripts and take advantage of various web accelerators for websites which are in the same account.
