Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache web servers that is used to cache the output code of script apps. It is very effective for scripts with large source code and will accelerate such a website up to 3 times. PHP sites are dynamic and any time a visitor opens some page, the script hooks up to a database to get some content, then the code is parsed and compiled before it is shown to the site visitor. In case the output code doesn't change however, that's the case with websites that display the same content all of the time, these actions result in unnecessary 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 doesn't have to be accessed and the program code does not have to be parsed and compiled repeatedly, which in turn decreases the Internet site loading time. The module can be extremely useful for informational sites, blogs, portfolios, etcetera.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Web Hosting
APC is pre-installed on our advanced cloud platform, which means that you will be able to use it for your applications irrespective of the cloud web hosting
package that you pick when you sign up. The module can be enabled from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is used to maintain the shared accounts and only a couple of minutes later it'll boost your sites since it'll start caching their program code. In case you would like to run sites with various system requirements or employ different web accelerators for some of them, you could customize the software environment by placing a php.ini file in the desired domain folder. Thus, you can enable or disable APC not just for a particular Internet site without affecting the remaining websites in the account, but also for a certain version of PHP because our platform supports multiple versions simultaneously.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting
APC is provided with all semi-dedicated hosting
solutions as it is pre-installed on the cloud website hosting platform where your account will be created. In case you'd like to use this module, you will be able to activate it with a single click from your Hepsia Control Panel and it'll be fully functional within a few minutes. Since you may want to use alternative web accelerators for selected sites, our leading-edge platform will enable you to customize the software environment in your account. You'll be able to activate APC for different releases of PHP or use it just for some websites and not for others. For instance, a Drupal™
-based site can function with APC using PHP 5.4 and a WordPress site can work without APC using PHP 5.6. What is needed to do the aforementioned is a php.ini file with a couple of lines in it, so you will be able to run sites with various requirements in the exact same account.
