Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache web servers that is used to cache the output code of script apps. It is very useful for scripts with large source code and will accelerate such a website up to 3 times. PHP websites are dynamic and whenever a visitor accesses a web page, the script connects to a database in order to get some content, after that the code is parsed and compiled before it is displayed to the website visitor. If the output code doesn't change however, that is the case with websites that display the very same content at all times, these actions trigger needless reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the already compiled program code and delivers it each time visitors browse an Internet site, so the database does not have to be accessed and the program code doesn't need to be parsed and compiled over and over again, that consequently reduces the website loading time. The module can be pretty effective for informational websites, blogs, portfolios, etc.

A few minutes later the framework will be working and you'll notice the faster loading speed of your database-driven websites. Since we provide several versions of PHP that can also be selected through Hepsia, you will even be able to employ APC for scripts that need different versions of PHP inside the same account. Our leading-edge cloud Internet hosting platform is very flexible, so in case you use some other web accelerator for any Internet site and it disturbs APC, you will be able to activate or deactivate the aforementioned for a selected site only by using a php.ini file created in the domain or subdomain folder.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting

APC is provided with all semi-dedicated hosting solutions because it is pre-installed on the cloud hosting platform where your account will be created. If you would like to use this module, you'll be able to activate it with a single click inside your Hepsia Control Panel and it will be fully operational within a couple of minutes.
