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 in a database that is accessed whenever a visitor opens a webpage. The content which needs to be shown is gathered and the code is parsed and compiled before it's delivered to the site visitor. All these actions take some processing time and involve reading and writing on the web server for each page that is loaded. While this cannot be avoided for sites with regularly changing content material, there're many websites that offer the very same content on a number of of their webpages constantly - blogs, informational portals, hotel and restaurant websites, etcetera. APC is really useful for such sites as it caches the already compiled code and displays it when visitors browse the cached pages, so the code does not have to be parsed and compiled repeatedly. This will not only decrease the server load, but it will also increase the speed of any website many times.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Hosting

You can use APC with each and every hosting package that we offer since it is already present on our advanced cloud platform and activating it will take you only a couple of clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. As our system is really flexible, you'll be able to run websites with various requirements and decide if they will work with APC or not. For instance, you can activate APC only for a single release of PHP or you could do the latter for several of the releases running on the platform. In addition, you can choose if all Internet sites working with a certain PHP version will use APC or whether the latter will be enabled just for selected Internet sites and not for all websites in the website hosting account. The aforementioned option is useful if you want to employ a different web accelerator for some of your sites. These customizations are done with ease by using a php.ini file in selected domain or subdomain folders.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting

APC is provided with all semi-dedicated hosting plans because it is pre-installed on the cloud website hosting platform where your account will be created. If you wish to use this module, you'll be able to activate it with just a single click in your Hepsia Control Panel and it will be fully operational in a few minutes. As you may need to use some other web accelerators for selected websites, our cutting-edge 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 Internet sites and not for others. For example, a Drupal-based Internet site can function with APC employing 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 few lines in it, so you will be able to run websites with various requirements inside the very same account.
