Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache servers that is used to cache the output code of script apps. It is very useful for scripts with large source code and could boost such an Internet site up to three times. PHP websites are dynamic and each time a website visitor opens a page, the script links to a database in order to retrieve some content, and then the code is parsed and compiled before it is displayed to the guest. If the output code does not change however, that's the case with Internet sites that show the exact same content all of the time, these actions result in unneeded reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the previously compiled program code and delivers it whenever visitors browse an Internet site, so the database does not need to be accessed and the program code does not have to be parsed and compiled continuously, that in turn decreases the website loading time. The module could be pretty useful for informational websites, blogs, portfolios, etc.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Web Hosting
APC is available with each and every cloud web hosting
plan that we offer and you could activate it with just a click through your Hepsia Control Panel if you would like to use it for your web applications. A couple of minutes later the framework will be working and you will notice the quicker loading speed of your database-driven sites. Since we provide different releases of PHP that can also be selected from Hepsia, you'll even be able to to employ APC for scripts which need different versions of PHP in the same account. Our next generation cloud web hosting platform is very flexible, so if you use an alternative web accelerator for any website and it disturbs APC, you'll be able to activate or deactivate the latter 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 use APC with our semi-dedicated hosting
solutions and activating this framework is done with a mouse click in the Hepsia Control Panel, so even when you don't have any prior experience, you'll be able to use it to boost your Internet sites. As the cloud internet hosting platform where the semi-dedicated accounts are made supports multiple PHP releases, you'll have freedom with regards to the scripts and web accelerators you could employ. It will take you just a click to allow APC for one or a couple of PHP versions and by using a php.ini file inside the domain/subdomain folders where you need settings that are not the same as the ones for the account in general, you will be able to set what PHP version will be used and whether APC has to be enabled or not. In this way, one Internet site could use APC and PHP 5.3, for instance, while another one may use some different accelerator and PHP 5.5.
