APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module which caches the output code of database-driven script apps. Dynamic PHP sites save their content within a database which is accessed whenever a visitor loads a webpage. The content which should be viewed is retrieved and the code is parsed and compiled before it's delivered to the visitor. All these actions need some processing time and include reading and writing on the server for each page that is accessed. While this can't be avoided for Internet sites with constantly changing content material, there're numerous Internet sites that offer the very same content on a lot of of their pages all the time - blogs, informational portals, hotel and restaurant Internet sites, etc. APC is very useful for this type of sites as it caches the previously compiled code and shows it any time visitors browse the cached pages, so the code does not have to be parsed and compiled repeatedly. This will not only reduce the server load, but it'll 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'll be able to use it for your web applications regardless of the web hosting package that you choose when you register. The module can be activated through the Hepsia internet hosting Control Panel that is used to maintain the shared accounts and just a couple of minutes later it will boost your sites because it'll start caching their program code. In case you need to run Internet sites with different system requirements or take advantage of specific web accelerators for any of them, you will be able to customize the software environment by putting a php.ini file in the preferred domain folder. This way, you can enable or disable APC not only for a specific website without affecting the remaining Internet sites in the account, but also for a certain 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 packages as it is pre-installed on the cloud hosting platform where your account will be created. In case you want to use this module, you'll be able to enable it with just a single click from your Hepsia Control Panel and it'll be fully functional in a few minutes. Since you may want to use alternative web accelerators for selected Internet sites, our state-of-the-art platform will permit you to personalize the software environment in your account. You will be able to activate APC for different releases of PHP or use it only for some Internet sites and not for others. For example, a Drupal-based Internet site could work with APC using PHP 5.4 and a WordPress website can function without APC using PHP 5.6. All it takes to do that is a php.ini file with a few lines in it, so you'll be able to run sites with various requirements from the exact same account.
