Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache servers that is used to cache the output code of script applications. It is very useful for scripts with large source code and can accelerate such a site as much as 3 times. PHP websites are dynamic and each time a visitor opens some page, the script hooks up to a database to get some content, after that the code is parsed and compiled before it is displayed to the visitor. If the output code does not change however, that is the case with Internet sites that display the same content at all times, these actions result in 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 program code does not need to be parsed and compiled repeatedly, that consequently reduces the site loading time. The module can be very helpful for informational websites, blogs, portfolios, and so on.

A couple of minutes later the framework will be working and you will be able to take advantage of the considerably faster loading speed of your database-driven websites. As we offer different versions of PHP that could also be selected through Hepsia, you will even be able to employ APC for scripts that require different versions of PHP in the very same account. Our cutting-edge cloud Internet hosting platform is very adaptable, so if you use some other web accelerator for any website and it interferes with APC, you will be able to activate or deactivate the aforementioned for a selected site only by using a php.ini file created in the domain or subdomain folder.

APC is provided with all semi-dedicated server solutions because it is pre-installed on the cloud website hosting platform where your account shall be created. If you wish to use this module, you can enable it with just a single click inside your Hepsia Control Panel and it will be fully functional within a couple of minutes.

For instance, a Drupal-based Internet site can function with APC employing PHP 5.4 and a WordPress website can work without APC employing PHP 5.6. All it takes to do that is a php.ini file with a few lines in it, so you'll be able to run Internet sites with different requirements from the same account.
