Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache servers that is used to cache the output code of script apps. It is very useful for scripts with large source code and can boost such a website up to three times. PHP sites are dynamic and every time a website visitor accesses some webpage, the script connects to a database in order to retrieve some content, after that 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 display the same content at all times, these actions result in unneeded reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the already compiled program code and delivers it each time visitors browse a site, so the database doesn't have to be accessed and the code doesn't have to be parsed and compiled repeatedly, that consequently lowers the Internet site loading time. The module can be rather useful for informational sites, blogs, portfolios, and many others.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Shared Hosting
You can employ APC for your web apps with any of the shared hosting plans that we provide since it's pre-installed on our cloud web hosting platform. Enabling it will take just a mouse click in the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with our shared plans and several minutes later it will start caching the program code of your software apps. Our platform is very flexible, so you'll be able to use several configurations determined by the system requirements of your scripts. For example, you'll be able to activate APC for several releases of PHP for the entire account and choose the version that each Internet site will use, or you can have the same version of PHP, but enable or disable APC only for particular sites. You can do this by putting a php.ini file with a line of program code in the domain or subdomain folder where you require the custom setup.
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 pick. Enabling the module is performed from the Hepsia Control Panel and takes only a click, so you will not need any skills or prior experience to be able to take full advantage of it. As you'll be able to employ different releases of PHP at once, you could customize the software environment for each Internet site that you host in the account if necessary. A php.ini file with a few lines in it placed in a domain folder will enable you to set what release of PHP this website will use and if APC needs to be on or off for it. These settings will have priority over the ones for the account as a whole, so you can run various scripts and employ various web accelerators for websites that are in the same account.
