Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache servers which is employed to cache the output code of script apps. It is very effective for scripts with large source code and can boost such an Internet site up to three times. PHP websites are dynamic and each time a user accesses some web page, the script connects to a database to get some content, and then the code is parsed and compiled before it is displayed to the site visitor. If the output code does not change however, that's the case with websites which display identical content at all times, such actions result in excessive reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the already compiled code and delivers it each time visitors browse an Internet site, so the database doesn't have to be accessed and the program code does not have to be parsed and compiled continuously, which in turn lowers the Internet site loading time. The module could be pretty helpful for informational Internet sites, blogs, portfolios, etcetera.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Website Hosting
You can employ APC for your web apps with all of the cloud website hosting
packages that we offer as it's pre-installed on our cloud web hosting platform. Turning it on will take only a click in the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with our shared solutions and several minutes later it'll begin caching the program code of your applications. Our platform is extremely flexible, so you'll be able to use different configurations in accordance with the system requirements of your scripts. For instance, you could activate APC for several versions of PHP for the entire account and choose the version that each website will use, or you can have the same version of PHP, but enable or disable APC just for specific Internet sites. This is done by putting a php.ini file with a line of code inside the domain or subdomain folder where you need the custom configuration.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting
APC is installed on the innovative cloud web hosting platform where all semi-dedicated hosting
accounts are made, so you will be able to employ it irrespective of the package you get. Enabling the module is performed through the Hepsia Control Panel and takes just a mouse click, so you will not need any skills or prior experience to be able to take full advantage of it. As you will be able to use several releases of PHP simultaneously, you will be able to customize the software environment for every single website which you host in the account if required. A php.ini file with a few lines in it placed in a domain folder will allow you to set what release of PHP this particular Internet site will use and if APC has to be on or off for it. These settings will have priority over those for the account as a whole, so you can run different scripts and use different web accelerators for websites which are in the same account.
