Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache servers which is used to cache the output code of script apps. It is very useful for scripts with large source code and can boost such a website up to three times. PHP sites are dynamic and whenever a user accesses some web page, the script hooks up to a database to retrieve some content, then the code is parsed and compiled prior to it being shown to the site visitor. If the output code doesn't change however, which is the case with Internet sites that show the exact same content at all times, these actions result in excessive reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the already compiled program code and delivers it whenever visitors browse a website, so the database doesn't have to be accessed and the program code doesn't need to be parsed and compiled again and again, which consequently minimizes the Internet site loading time. The module could be quite useful for informational Internet sites, blogs, portfolios, and many others.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Shared Hosting

APC is pre-installed on our next generation cloud platform, therefore you'll be able to use it for your web applications irrespective of the shared hosting package that you select when you register. The module can be enabled from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel which is used to control the shared accounts and just a couple of minutes later it will boost your Internet sites because it will begin caching their program code. If you want to run Internet sites with different system requirements or use specific web accelerators for any of them, you could customize the software environment by putting a php.ini file inside the preferred domain folder. Thus, you could enable or disable APC not just for a certain Internet site without affecting the other Internet sites in the account, but also for a particular version of PHP since our platform supports multiple versions simultaneously.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting

APC is available with all semi-dedicated hosting packages as it is pre-installed on the cloud hosting platform where your account will be created. If you'd like to use this module, you can activate it with just a single click from your Hepsia Control Panel and it will be fully operational in a couple of minutes. Since you may want to use other web accelerators for selected Internet sites, our cutting-edge platform will permit you to personalize the software environment in your account. You will be able to activate APC for different versions of PHP or use it just for some sites and not for others. For instance, a Drupal-based site could work with APC using PHP 5.4 and a WordPress site can function without APC using PHP 5.6. All it takes to do the latter is a php.ini file with a couple of lines in it, so you'll be able to run websites with different requirements inside the same account.
