Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache servers which is employed to cache the output code of script applications. It is very efficient for scripts with large source code and could speed up such a website as much as three times. PHP sites are dynamic and each time a website visitor accesses some web page, the script links to a database to get some content, then the code is parsed and compiled prior to it being shown to the site visitor. If the output code does not change however, which is the case with sites which show the exact same content at all times, these actions result in needless reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the already compiled code and delivers it each time visitors browse an Internet site, so the database doesn't need to be accessed and the code doesn't have to be parsed and compiled again and again, that consequently reduces the site loading time. The module could be extremely helpful for informational Internet sites, blogs, portfolios, etcetera.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Shared Website Hosting
APC is provided with each shared website hosting
plan that we offer and you can enable it with only a click through your Hepsia Control Panel if you wish to use it for your web applications. A couple of minutes later the framework will be working and you will notice the considerably quicker loading speed of your database-driven sites. As we offer several versions of PHP which can also be selected through Hepsia, you will even be able to employ APC for scripts which need different versions of PHP within the very same account. Our high tech cloud hosting platform is extremely flexible, so if you use a different web accelerator for any website and it disrupts APC, you could activate or deactivate the aforementioned for a particular site only by using a php.ini file created in the domain or subdomain folder.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can use APC for each and every script application which runs on your new semi-dedicated server
since the module is already installed on the cloud hosting platform where the account will be created. Activating or deactivating APC for the account requires a single click from the Hepsia Control Panel, but if needed, you could use the module only for particular Internet sites. This is possible because of the flexibility of our cloud platform - multiple releases of PHP run on it at the same time, so with a php.ini file placed in a site folder, you'll be able to pick what version will be used for this particular site and whether APC needs to be enabled or disabled. Employing such a file enables you to use settings which are different from the ones for your account, so you'll be able to take advantage of APC for many scripts where the module can make a difference and not for others where you can take advantage of a different kind of web accelerator.
