APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module which caches the output code of database-driven script software applications. Dynamic PHP websites save their content inside a database which is accessed whenever a visitor opens a webpage. The content that needs to be viewed is gathered and the code is parsed and compiled prior to it being delivered to the visitor. All of these actions need some processing time and include reading and writing on the hosting server for each and every page which is opened. While this cannot be avoided for sites with constantly changing content, there're various Internet sites that have the same content on a lot of of their webpages all the time - blogs, info portals, hotel and restaurant Internet sites, and many others. APC is very useful for such websites since it caches the already compiled code and displays it any time visitors browse the cached pages, so the code does not have to be parsed and compiled repeatedly. This will not only lower the server load, but it'll also increase the speed of any Internet site many times.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Web Hosting

APC is pre-installed on our advanced cloud platform, so you'll be able to use it for your web applications regardless of the web hosting solution that you pick when you sign up. 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 sites since it'll begin caching their program code. If you want to run websites with various system requirements or take advantage of specific web accelerators for some of them, you will be able to customize the software environment by putting a php.ini file inside the desired domain folder. This way, you can enable or disable APC not just for a certain Internet site without affecting the remaining Internet sites in the account, but also for a certain version of PHP as 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 solutions since it is pre-installed on the cloud hosting platform where your account will be created. In case you would like to use this module, you can activate it with just a single click inside your Hepsia Control Panel and it'll be fully operational within a couple of minutes. As you may need to use some other web accelerators for selected websites, our advanced platform will enable you to personalize the software environment inside your account. You will be able to activate APC for different releases of PHP or use it just for some Internet sites and not for others. For example, a Drupal-based site can work with APC using PHP 5.4 and a WordPress site can work without APC employing PHP 5.6. All it takes to do the aforementioned is a php.ini file with a few lines in it, so you can run websites with different requirements in the same account.
