Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache web servers which is used to cache the output code of script applications. It is very useful for scripts with large source code and will boost such a website up to three times. PHP sites are dynamic and each time a visitor accesses a web page, the script links to a database to retrieve some content, then the code is parsed and compiled before it is shown to the visitor. If the output code does not change however, which is the case with Internet sites which show the same content all the time, such actions trigger unnecessary reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the previously compiled program code and delivers it whenever visitors browse a site, so the database does not have to be accessed and the code does not have to be parsed and compiled continuously, that in turn lowers the website loading time. The module could be pretty effective for informational Internet sites, blogs, portfolios, etc.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Shared Website Hosting
APC is provided with each and every shared website hosting
plan that we offer and you could enable it with only a click through your Hepsia Control Panel if you would like to use it for your web apps. A few minutes later the framework will be active and you'll notice the considerably faster loading speed of your database-driven Internet sites. As we offer different releases of PHP that can also be selected from Hepsia, you'll even be able to to use APC for scripts that require different versions of PHP inside the very same account. Our advanced cloud Internet hosting platform is very flexible, so if you use some other web accelerator for any Internet site and it disturbs APC, you'll be able to activate or deactivate the latter for a specific site only by using a php.ini file generated in the domain or subdomain folder.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting
APC is set up on the amazing cloud web hosting platform where all semi-dedicated hosting
accounts are created, so you will be able to employ it regardless of the plan you choose. Enabling the module is done through the Hepsia Control Panel and takes only a mouse click, so you will not need any skills or previous experience in order to take full advantage of it. As you'll be able to work with several releases of PHP simultaneously, you could modify the software environment for every single Internet site you host in the account if needed. A php.ini file with a few lines in it placed in a domain folder will allow you to set what release of PHP this specific site will use and if APC should be on or off for it. These settings will have priority over those for the account as a whole, so you could run various scripts and take advantage of various web accelerators for Internet sites which are in the same account.
