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 efficient for scripts with large source code and will speed up such an Internet site up to 3 times. PHP websites are dynamic and every time a user accesses some webpage, the script links to a database to get some content, after that the code is parsed and compiled prior to it being shown to the visitor. In case the output code doesn't change however, that's the case with Internet sites that show the very same content all of the time, these actions trigger unnecessary reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the already compiled code and delivers it each time visitors browse a site, so the database doesn't have to be accessed and the program code does not have to be parsed and compiled continuously, that consequently reduces the website loading time. The module could be quite useful for informational websites, blogs, portfolios, etcetera.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Shared Web Hosting

APC is pre-installed on our leading-edge cloud platform, therefore you'll be able to use it for your applications regardless of the shared web hosting plan that you select when you register. The module can be activated through the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel that is used to control the shared accounts and just several minutes later it'll boost your websites since it'll begin caching their code. If you want to run sites with various system requirements or use specific web accelerators for some of them, you could customize the software environment by placing a php.ini file in the desired domain folder. In this way, you can enable or disable APC not just for a particular site without affecting the remaining Internet sites in the account, but also for a specific version of PHP since our platform is compatible with multiple versions at the same time.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting

APC is provided with all semi-dedicated hosting packages because it's pre-installed on the cloud hosting platform where your account will be created. In case you'd like to use this module, you can activate it with a single click inside your Hepsia Control Panel and it'll be fully functional within a few minutes. As you may want to use other web accelerators for selected websites, our leading-edge platform will enable you to customize the software environment inside your account. You can activate APC for different releases of PHP or use it only for some Internet sites and not for others. For example, a Drupal-based site can function with APC employing PHP 5.4 and a WordPress website can function without APC using PHP 5.6. What is needed to do the aforementioned is a php.ini file with a few lines in it, so you'll be able to run websites with various requirements inside the same account.
