Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache web servers which is used to cache the output code of script apps. It is very useful for scripts with large source code and can speed up such an Internet site up to three times. PHP sites are dynamic and every time a visitor opens some page, the script hooks up to a database to get some content, and then the code is parsed and compiled prior to it being shown to the guest. If the output code doesn't change however, that is the case with sites which show the very same content all the time, such actions result in unneeded reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the previously compiled program code and delivers it each time visitors browse an Internet site, so the database doesn't have to be accessed and the code does not need to be parsed and compiled continuously, which in turn reduces the Internet site loading time. The module could be really effective for informational Internet sites, blogs, portfolios, etcetera.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Hosting
APC is pre-installed on our cutting-edge cloud platform, therefore you can use it for your web applications regardless of the cloud hosting solution that you pick when you sign up. The module can be activated from the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel which is used to take care of the shared accounts and just a few minutes later it will speed up your Internet sites as it will begin caching their code. In case you would like to run websites with different system requirements or employ specific web accelerators for some of them, you could customize the software environment by placing a php.ini file in the preferred domain folder. This way, you could enable or disable APC not only for a specific site without affecting the remaining Internet sites in the account, but also for a particular version of PHP as our platform supports multiple versions at the same time.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting
APC is set up on the amazing cloud Internet hosting platform where all semi-dedicated hosting accounts are created, so you could employ it irrespective of the package you get. Enabling the module is done from the Hepsia Control Panel and takes just a click, so you will not need any skills or earlier experience to be able to take advantage of it. As you'll be able to work with different releases of PHP simultaneously, you'll be able to modify the software environment for each and every Internet site which you host in the account if required. A php.ini file with a couple of lines in it placed in a domain folder will permit you to set what release of PHP this website will use and if APC should be on or off for it. These settings will have priority over the ones for the account in general, so you could run different scripts and take advantage of various web accelerators for websites that are in the same account.
