APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module that caches the output code of database-driven script applications. Dynamic PHP sites hold their content within a database which is accessed whenever a visitor opens a webpage. The content that should be shown is retrieved and the code is parsed and compiled before it's delivered to the website visitor. These actions need some processing time and include reading and writing on the hosting server for every single page which is loaded. While this can't be avoided for websites with constantly changing content material, there are many websites which have the very same content on a lot of of their webpages all of the time - blogs, info portals, hotel and restaurant sites, etc. APC is extremely useful for such Internet sites as it caches the already compiled code and displays it each time visitors browse the cached pages, so the code does not need to be parsed and compiled again. This will not only lower the server load, but it will also boost the speed of any Internet site many times.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Web Hosting

APC is provided with each and every web hosting solution that we offer and you could enable it with only a click from your Hepsia Control Panel if you would like to use it for your web apps. A few minutes later the framework will be active and you'll notice the faster loading speed of your database-driven sites. As we provide several versions of PHP which could also be selected through Hepsia, you will even be able to employ APC for scripts which need different versions of PHP within the same account. Our next generation cloud hosting platform is very flexible, so in case you use a different web accelerator for any website and it interferes with APC, you will be able to activate or deactivate the aforementioned for a particular site only by using a php.ini file generated in the domain or subdomain folder.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting

APC is available with all semi-dedicated hosting plans since it is pre-installed on the cloud hosting platform where your account shall be created. If you would like to use this module, you can enable it with just a single click from your Hepsia Control Panel and it will be fully operational within a few minutes. As you may need to use other web accelerators for selected websites, our leading-edge platform will allow you to customize the software environment inside your account. You can activate APC for different releases of PHP or use it just for some Internet sites and not for others. For instance, a Drupal-based Internet site could work with APC using PHP 5.4 and a WordPress website can work without APC using PHP 5.6. All it takes to do the latter is a php.ini file with several lines in it, so you could run websites with various requirements in the same account.
