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 effective for scripts with large source code and can accelerate such a website as much as three times. PHP sites are dynamic and each time a website visitor opens a webpage, the script hooks up to a database to get some content, then the code is parsed and compiled before it's displayed to the visitor. In case the output code doesn't change however, that's the case with websites which show the exact same content all of the time, such actions result in needless reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the already compiled code and delivers it any time visitors browse a website, so the database doesn't need to be accessed and the program code does not need to be parsed and compiled over and over again, which in turn lowers the site loading time. The module could be rather helpful for informational websites, blogs, portfolios, etc.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Shared Hosting

APC is provided with each shared hosting solution that we offer and you can activate it with just a click from your Hepsia Control Panel if you want to use it for your web applications. Several minutes later the framework will be working and you will be able to take advantage of the faster loading speed of your database-driven websites. Since we offer several versions of PHP which can also be selected through Hepsia, you will even be able to use APC for scripts that require different versions of PHP in the same account. Our next generation cloud hosting platform is very flexible, so if you use an alternative web accelerator for any website and it disrupts APC, you'll be able to activate or deactivate the latter 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

APC is provided with all semi-dedicated hosting solutions since it's pre-installed on the cloud website hosting platform where your account will be created. If you would like to use this module, you can enable it with just a single click from your Hepsia Control Panel and it'll be fully operational within a couple of minutes. As you may need to use other web accelerators for selected websites, our outstanding platform will allow you to personalize the software environment in your account. You can activate APC for different releases of PHP or use it only for some sites and not for others. For instance, a Drupal-based site can work with APC using PHP 5.4 and a WordPress website can function without APC using PHP 5.6. All it takes to do the aforementioned is a php.ini file with a couple of lines in it, so you'll be able to run Internet sites with different requirements from the exact same account.
