APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module which caches the output code of database-driven script software apps. Dynamic PHP Internet sites hold their content inside a database that is accessed whenever a visitor loads a webpage. The content which should be shown is gathered and the code is parsed and compiled before it is delivered to the visitor. All of these actions take some processing time and include reading and writing on the hosting server for each page that is loaded. While this can't be avoided for sites with regularly changing content material, there're many websites which offer the very same content on many of their pages all the time - blogs, informational portals, hotel and restaurant websites, etc. APC is very useful for this kind of websites since it caches the previously compiled code and displays it whenever visitors browse the cached pages, so the code doesn't need to be parsed and compiled repeatedly. Not only will this decrease the server load, but it will also increase the speed of any website many times.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Web Hosting

APC is pre-installed on our leading-edge cloud platform, which means that you can use it for your applications irrespective of the web hosting plan that you choose when you register. The module can be enabled from the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel which is used to maintain the shared accounts and just a couple of minutes later it'll speed up your websites since it will start caching their code. In case you wish to run sites with various system requirements or take advantage of specific web accelerators for any of them, you could customize the software environment by putting a php.ini file in the desired domain folder. This way, you could enable or disable APC not only for a certain site without affecting the other websites 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 Servers

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