APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module that caches the output code of database-driven script apps. Dynamic PHP sites keep their content in a database that is accessed whenever a visitor loads a page. The content that has to be displayed is gathered and the code is parsed and compiled prior to it being delivered to the site visitor. All these actions need some processing time and require reading and writing on the web server for each page that is opened. While this can't be avoided for websites with constantly changing content material, there are numerous websites that have the very same content on many of their pages constantly - blogs, informational portals, hotel and restaurant Internet sites, and many others. APC is very useful for this kind of sites since it caches the already compiled code and displays it whenever visitors browse the cached webpages, so the code does not need to be parsed and compiled again. Not only will this decrease the server load, but it will also raise the speed of any website several times.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Hosting

You can use APC with each and every cloud hosting package that we provide as it is already installed on our advanced cloud platform and activating it will take you only a few clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. Since our platform is quite flexible, you'll be able to run Internet sites with different requirements and decide if they will use APC or not. For example, you can enable APC only for a single release of PHP or you could do the latter for several of the versions that run on our platform. It's also possible to select if all Internet sites using a particular PHP version will use APC or whether the latter will be enabled only for selected websites and not for all sites in the web hosting account. The last option is useful if you'd like to employ a different web accelerator for several of your websites. These customizations are carried out effortlessly through 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 packages as it is pre-installed on the cloud website hosting platform where your account will be created. If you'd like to use this module, you can enable it with just a single click inside your Hepsia Control Panel and it will be fully operational within a couple of minutes. Since you may want to use some other web accelerators for selected websites, our advanced platform will allow you to personalize the software environment in your account. You'll be able to activate APC for different versions of PHP or use it only for some sites and not for others. For instance, a Drupal-based site can function with APC using PHP 5.4 and a WordPress website could work without APC employing PHP 5.6. All it takes to do that is a php.ini file with several lines in it, so you could run websites with different requirements inside the same account.
