APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module that caches the output code of database-driven script software apps. Dynamic PHP Internet sites save their content within a database which is accessed whenever a visitor opens a page. The content which needs to be shown is retrieved and the code is parsed and compiled before it is delivered to the website visitor. These actions take some processing time and include reading and writing on the server for each page which is loaded. While this cannot be avoided for Internet sites with constantly changing content, there are a lot of websites that present the very same content on a lot of of their pages constantly - blogs, info portals, hotel and restaurant Internet sites, etcetera. APC is extremely useful for such websites as it caches the previously compiled code and displays it whenever visitors browse the cached webpages, so the code doesn't need to be parsed and compiled all over again. This will not only minimize the server load, but it'll also boost the speed of any site several times.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Shared Hosting

APC is pre-installed on our cutting-edge cloud platform, so you'll be able to use it for your web applications regardless of the shared hosting package that you select when you join us. The module can be enabled from your Hepsia internet hosting Control Panel which is used to take care of the shared accounts and only a few minutes later it'll speed up your Internet sites because it will begin caching their code. In case you wish to run sites with various system requirements or employ specific web accelerators for any of them, you could customize the software environment by putting a php.ini file in the desired domain folder. Thus, you could enable or disable APC not just for a certain Internet site without affecting the remaining Internet sites in the account, but also for a particular 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 provided with all semi-dedicated hosting packages because it is pre-installed on the cloud website hosting platform where your account shall be created. In case you want to use this module, you can enable it with just a single click inside your Hepsia Control Panel and it'll be fully functional within a few minutes. As you may need to use some other web accelerators for selected Internet sites, our cutting-edge platform will allow 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 websites and not for others. For example, a Drupal-based site can function with APC using PHP 5.4 and a WordPress website could work without APC using PHP 5.6. What is needed to do the latter is a php.ini file with several lines in it, so you could run websites with different requirements in the very same account.
