Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache servers that is employed to cache the output code of script applications. It is very effective for scripts with large source code and could boost such a site as much as 3 times. PHP sites are dynamic and every time a user accesses some webpage, the script hooks up to a database to get some content, after that the code is parsed and compiled before it is shown to the guest. In case the output code does not change however, that is the case with websites which show identical content at all times, these actions result in excessive reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the already compiled code and delivers it every time visitors browse a website, so the database does not need to be accessed and the program code doesn't have to be parsed and compiled repeatedly, that consequently lowers the site loading time. The module can be really efficient for informational Internet sites, blogs, portfolios, etc.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Web Hosting

You can use APC with every single cloud web hosting plan that we provide as it's already set up on our advanced cloud platform and activating it will take you only a few clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. As our system is extremely flexible, you will be able to run sites with various system requirements and decide if they will work with APC or not. For instance, you could enable APC only for a single release of PHP or you could do this for several of the versions running on the platform. It's also possible to select if all Internet sites working with a particular PHP version will use APC or whether the latter will be active only for selected websites and not for all websites in the website hosting account. The last option is useful when you would like to employ a different web accelerator for several of your sites. These customizations are done with ease through a php.ini file in selected domain or subdomain folders.

APC is provided with all semi-dedicated server packages as it's pre-installed on the cloud hosting platform where your account shall be created.
