APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module which caches the output code of database-driven script apps. Dynamic PHP sites store their content in a database that is accessed whenever a visitor loads a page. The content that has to be viewed is gathered and the code is parsed and compiled prior to it being delivered to the website visitor. All of these actions need some processing time and require reading and writing on the server for every single page which is opened. While this cannot be avoided for sites with constantly changing content material, there are numerous sites that feature the very same content on many of their webpages all the time - blogs, info portals, hotel and restaurant Internet sites, and many others. APC is extremely useful for this type of sites because it caches the previously compiled code and displays it whenever visitors browse the cached webpages, so the code does not have to be parsed and compiled all over again. Not only will this decrease the server load, but it'll also boost the speed of any site many times.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Hosting

APC is pre-installed on our outstanding cloud platform, therefore you can use it for your web applications regardless of the cloud hosting solution that you select when you sign up. The module can be enabled through the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel that is used to manage the shared accounts and just a few minutes later it will boost your Internet sites since it will start caching their program code. If you wish to run websites with different system requirements or use different web accelerators for any of them, you could customize the software environment by placing a php.ini file inside the preferred domain folder. In this way, you could enable or disable APC not just for a certain site without affecting the remaining Internet sites in the account, but also for a specific version of PHP since our platform is compatible with multiple versions at the same time.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting

APC is available with all semi-dedicated hosting plans since it is pre-installed on the cloud website hosting platform where your account shall be created. If you want to use this module, you'll be able to enable it with a single click inside your Hepsia Control Panel and it will be fully operational in a few minutes. Since you may need to use other web accelerators for selected sites, our outstanding platform will allow you to personalize the software environment inside your account. You will be able to activate APC for different versions of PHP or use it only for some sites and not for others. For example, a Drupal-based site can function with APC using PHP 5.4 and a WordPress site can work without APC using PHP 5.6. All it takes to do that is a php.ini file with a couple of lines in it, so you will be able to run Internet sites with different requirements from the same account.
