Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache servers that is employed to cache the output code of script apps. It is very useful for scripts with large source code and could boost such a website as much as 3 times. PHP sites are dynamic and any time a user opens a webpage, the script hooks up to a database to get some content, then the code is parsed and compiled prior to it being displayed to the site visitor. In case the output code does not change however, that's the case with websites that display the very same content all the time, such actions result in unneeded reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the already compiled code and delivers it whenever visitors browse a site, so the database doesn't need to be accessed and the program code does not have to be parsed and compiled continuously, which in turn minimizes the website loading time. The module can be very useful for informational sites, blogs, portfolios, and so on.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Web Hosting
APC is available with every single cloud web hosting plan that we offer and you can activate it with just a click through your Hepsia Control Panel if you'd like to use it for your applications. A few minutes later the framework will be active and you will experience the quicker loading speed of your database-driven websites. Since we offer several versions of PHP that can also be selected from Hepsia, you will even be able to use APC for scripts which need different versions of PHP inside the same account. Our leading-edge cloud hosting platform is extremely adaptable, so if you use an alternative web accelerator for any Internet site and it disrupts APC, you'll be able to activate or deactivate the aforementioned for a selected site only by using a php.ini file created in the domain or subdomain folder.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can use APC for every single script application that is run on your new semi-dedicated hosting since the module is already installed on the cloud hosting platform where the account will be made. Activating or deactivating APC for the whole account requires one click in the Hepsia Control Panel, but if needed, you can use the module just for certain Internet sites. This is possible because of the flexibility of our cloud platform - multiple releases of PHP run on it simultaneously, so with a php.ini file placed in a website folder, you can pick what release will be used for this specific site and whether APC has to be enabled or disabled. Employing such a file enables you to use settings which are different from the standard ones for your account, so you will be able to take advantage of APC for some scripts where the module makes a difference and not for others where you could use a different type of web accelerator.
