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 useful for scripts with large source code and will boost such an Internet site as much as 3 times. PHP sites are dynamic and whenever a visitor accesses a webpage, the script connects to a database in order to retrieve some content, then the code is parsed and compiled before it's shown to the site visitor. If the output code doesn't change however, that's the case with Internet sites which display the same content all the time, these actions trigger excessive reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the previously compiled code and delivers it every time visitors browse a site, so the database does not need to be accessed and the program code does not have to be parsed and compiled again and again, which in turn minimizes the website loading time. The module could be rather useful for informational websites, blogs, portfolios, etcetera.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Servers

APC is installed on the state-of-the-art cloud hosting platform where all semi-dedicated server accounts are made, so you will be able to use it regardless of the plan you select. Activating 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 in order to take full advantage of it. As you'll be able to work with several releases of PHP simultaneously, you could customize the software environment for each and every website you host in the account if required. A php.ini file with several lines in it placed in a domain folder will permit you to set what version of PHP this particular site will use and whether APC has to be on or off for it. These settings will have priority over those for the account in general, so you could run different scripts and employ different web accelerators for websites that are in the same account.
