Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache servers that is used to cache the output code of script applications. It is very effective for scripts with large source code and will boost such a site up to three times. PHP websites are dynamic and every time a visitor opens a web page, the script hooks up to a database to get some content, after that the code is parsed and compiled prior to it being displayed to the visitor. If the output code doesn't change however, that is the case with Internet sites which show identical content all of the time, such actions result in needless reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the previously compiled program code and delivers it whenever visitors browse a site, so the database does not have to be accessed and the code doesn't need to be parsed and compiled over and over again, that in turn lowers the website loading time. The module could be extremely useful for informational Internet sites, blogs, portfolios, and many others.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Shared Website Hosting

APC is pre-installed on our outstanding cloud platform, so you will be able to use it for your applications regardless of the shared website hosting plan that you choose when you sign up. The module can be enabled from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel which is used to take care of the shared accounts and just a couple of minutes later it will boost your Internet sites because it will begin caching their code. In case you need to run sites with different system requirements or use specific web accelerators for some of them, you will be able to customize the software environment by putting a php.ini file inside the preferred domain folder. This way, you could enable or disable APC not just for a certain site without affecting the other sites in the account, but also for a specific version of PHP since our platform is compatible with multiple versions simultaneously.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Servers

APC is available with all semi-dedicated server solutions because it's pre-installed on the cloud website hosting platform where your account will be created. If you wish to use this module, you will be able to activate it with just a single click in your Hepsia Control Panel and it'll be fully functional within a few minutes. As you may need to use alternative web accelerators for selected websites, our outstanding platform will permit you to personalize the software environment inside your account. You will be able to activate APC for different versions of PHP or use it just for some websites and not for others. For instance, a Drupal-based Internet site can work with APC using PHP 5.4 and a WordPress site can work without APC using PHP 5.6. What is needed to do that is a php.ini file with several lines in it, so you could run sites with various requirements inside the exact same account.
