Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache web servers that is employed to cache the output code of script apps. It is very efficient for scripts with large source code and could accelerate such a site as much as three times. PHP sites are dynamic and whenever a visitor opens a page, the script links to a database to get some content, then the code is parsed and compiled before it is shown to the site visitor. If the output code does not change however, that is the case with websites which display the exact same content at all times, these actions result in unneeded reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the previously compiled program code and delivers it every time visitors browse a site, so the database does not need to be accessed and the code does not have to be parsed and compiled continuously, which consequently reduces the website loading time. The module can be extremely efficient for informational Internet sites, blogs, portfolios, etc.

APC is available with each and every cloud hosting package that we offer and you could enable it with just a click through your Hepsia Control Panel if you'd like to use it for your web apps. Several minutes later the framework will be active and you'll experience the faster loading speed of your database-driven sites. As we offer different versions of PHP which can also be selected through Hepsia, you'll even be able to to use APC for scripts that need different versions of PHP inside the same account. Our leading-edge cloud hosting platform is extremely flexible, so in case you use some other web accelerator for any website and it interferes with APC, you will be able to activate or deactivate the aforementioned 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
You can take advantage of APC with our semi-dedicated hosting plans and activating the framework is performed with a mouse click from the Hepsia Control Panel, so even if you have no previous experience, you will be able to use it in order to quicken your websites. As the cloud internet hosting platform where the semi-dedicated accounts are created supports multiple PHP releases, you'll have freedom regarding the scripts and web accelerators you'll be able to use. It will take you just a click to allow APC for one or a couple of PHP releases and by using a php.ini file in the domain/subdomain folders where you need settings which are not the same as the ones for the account in general, you'll be able to set what PHP version will be used and whether APC should be enabled or not. This way, one Internet site could use APC and PHP 5.3, for example, while another one could use some other accelerator and PHP 5.5.
