Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache web servers that is employed to cache the output code of script applications. It is very efficient for scripts with large source code and will accelerate such an Internet site as much as 3 times. PHP sites are dynamic and whenever a website visitor accesses a web page, the script connects to a database in order to get some content, then the code is parsed and compiled prior to it being displayed to the visitor. In case the output code does not change however, that's the case with Internet sites which display the same content at all times, such actions result in unneeded reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the already compiled code and delivers it every time visitors browse an Internet site, so the database does not have to be accessed and the program code does not have to be parsed and compiled continuously, which in turn minimizes the site loading time. The module can be pretty effective for informational websites, blogs, portfolios, and many others.

APC is pre-installed on our outstanding cloud platform, therefore you will be able to use it for your web applications whatever the cloud website hosting package that you choose when you register. The module can be enabled through the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel that is used to control the shared accounts and only a couple of minutes later it'll boost your Internet sites since it'll begin caching their program code. In case you would like to run sites with various system requirements or take advantage of specific web accelerators for any of them, you'll be able to customize the software environment by putting a php.ini file inside the preferred domain folder. This way, you can enable or disable APC not just for a specific Internet site without affecting the remaining sites in the account, but also for a particular version of PHP since our platform supports multiple versions at the same time.

As the cloud internet hosting platform where the semi-dedicated accounts are created is compatible with multiple PHP versions, you will have freedom regarding the scripts and web accelerators you'll be able to use. It will take you only a click to allow APC for one or a couple of PHP releases and by using a php.ini file inside the domain/subdomain folders where you need settings which are different from the ones for the account in general, you could set what PHP release will be used and whether APC should be enabled or not. This way, one website can use APC and PHP 5.3, for example, and another one may use some different accelerator and PHP 5.5.
