Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache servers that is employed to cache the output code of script applications. It is very useful for scripts with large source code and will accelerate such an Internet site as much as three times. PHP websites are dynamic and whenever a website visitor accesses some page, the script connects to a database to retrieve some content, after that the code is parsed and compiled before it is shown to the website visitor. In case the output code doesn't change however, that is the case with Internet sites that display identical content all the time, such actions result in needless 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 need to be accessed and the program code does not need to be parsed and compiled again and again, which in turn lowers the site loading time. The module could be really helpful for informational websites, blogs, portfolios, etc.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Hosting
APC is available with every single cloud hosting package that we offer and you could activate it with only a click from your Hepsia Control Panel if you wish to use it for your web applications. A couple of minutes later the framework will be active and you will be able to take advantage of the quicker loading speed of your database-driven Internet sites. As we provide several versions of PHP which can also be selected from Hepsia, you'll even be able to to employ APC for scripts which need different versions of PHP within the same account. Our advanced cloud web hosting platform is extremely flexible, so if you use an alternative web accelerator for any website and it disturbs APC, you will be able to activate or deactivate the aforementioned for a specific site only by using a php.ini file created in the domain or subdomain folder.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You’ll be able to use APC for every single script application that is run on your new semi-dedicated hosting since the module is already installed on the cloud hosting platform where the account will be created. Activating or deactivating APC for the whole account requires a click in the Hepsia Control Panel, but if necessary, you can use the module only for certain Internet sites. This is possible on account of the flexibility of our cloud platform - different releases of PHP run on it simultaneously, so with a php.ini file placed in a site folder, you can choose what release will be used for this specific website and whether APC should be enabled or disabled. Employing such a file enables you to use settings which are different from the ones for the account, so you'll be able to take full advantage of APC for some scripts where the module will make a difference and not for others where you can take advantage of another kind of web accelerator.
