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 will speed up such an Internet site up to three times. PHP sites are dynamic and every time a website visitor opens a page, the script links to a database in order to retrieve some content, after that the code is parsed and compiled before it is shown to the website visitor. In case the output code does not change however, that is the case with sites that show the exact same content all the time, these actions trigger needless reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the previously compiled program code and delivers it any time visitors browse a site, so the database doesn't need to be accessed and the program code doesn't need to be parsed and compiled over and over again, that consequently reduces the website loading time. The module could be pretty effective for informational sites, blogs, portfolios, etcetera.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Web Hosting
You can use APC for your web apps with all of the web hosting packages that we provide as it's pre-installed on our cloud website hosting platform. Activating it will take just a click in the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with our shared plans and a few minutes later it will begin caching the program code of your software apps. Our platform is rather flexible, so you will be able to use different configurations determined by the system requirements of the scripts. For instance, you can activate APC for several releases of PHP for the entire account and pick the version that each site can use, or you could have the exact same version of PHP, but enable or disable APC only for particular Internet sites. You can do this by putting a php.ini file with a line of program code within the domain or subdomain folder where you require the custom setup.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You’ll be able to use APC for each and every script application that is run on your new semi-dedicated hosting because the module is pre-installed on the cloud hosting platform where the account will be made. Activating or deactivating APC for the account requires one click inside the Hepsia Control Panel, but if necessary, you can use the module only for certain sites. This is possible due to the versatility of our cloud platform - different releases of PHP run on it concurrently, so with a php.ini file placed in a site folder, you can pick what release will be used for this particular 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 the account, so you can take advantage of APC for a lot of scripts where the module makes a difference and not for others where you could use another type of web accelerator.
