Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache web servers that is used to cache the output code of script applications. It is very effective for scripts with large source code and could accelerate such an Internet site as much as 3 times. PHP sites are dynamic and any time a visitor opens some page, the script connects to a database in order to get some content, after that the code is parsed and compiled before it is shown to the visitor. In case the output code does not change however, which is the case with sites which display the very same content all of the time, such actions trigger unneeded reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the previously compiled program code and delivers it each time visitors browse a website, so the database doesn't need to be accessed and the code doesn't need to be parsed and compiled continuously, that consequently minimizes the website loading time. The module can be pretty efficient for informational websites, blogs, portfolios, and so on.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Web Hosting

You can use APC with each and every web hosting plan that we offer as it's already present on our advanced cloud platform and enabling it will take you just a couple of clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. As our platform is really flexible, you'll be able to run websites with various system requirements and decide whether they will use APC or not. For example, you could enable APC only for a single version of PHP or you can do the latter for several of the versions running on the platform. You may also choose if all sites using a specific PHP version will use APC or if the latter will be enabled just for selected websites and not for all sites in the web hosting account. The aforementioned option is useful if you need to employ a different web accelerator for some of your Internet sites. These customizations are done effortlessly via a php.ini file in selected domain or subdomain folders.

Since you may want to use some other web accelerators for selected sites, our state-of-the-art platform will allow you to customize the software environment inside your account. You can activate APC for different versions of PHP or use it only for some Internet sites and not for others. For instance, a Drupal-based Internet site can work with APC using PHP 5.4 and a WordPress site can work without APC using PHP 5.6. All it takes to do the aforementioned is a php.ini file with a few lines in it, so you can run Internet sites with various requirements from the same account.
