APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module that caches the output code of database-driven script apps. Dynamic PHP Internet sites save their content in a database which is accessed whenever a visitor loads a page. The content which needs to be shown is gathered and the code is parsed and compiled before it's delivered to the visitor. These actions take some processing time and involve reading and writing on the web server for each and every page that is loaded. While this can't be avoided for sites with regularly changing content material, there are various Internet sites that present the same content on many of their webpages at all times - blogs, info portals, hotel and restaurant sites, and many others. APC is quite useful for such websites since it caches the previously compiled code and shows it any time visitors browse the cached webpages, so the code doesn't have to be parsed and compiled repeatedly. This will not only greatly reduce the server load, but it'll also boost the speed of any Internet site a few times.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Shared Hosting

APC is available with each and every shared hosting solution that we offer and you can enable it with only a click from your Hepsia Control Panel if you'd like to use it for your web apps. Several minutes later the framework will be active and you will experience the considerably faster loading speed of your database-driven websites. As we provide several versions of PHP which can also be selected through Hepsia, you'll even be able to to use APC for scripts that require different versions of PHP inside the very same account. Our high tech cloud web hosting platform is very adaptable, so if you use another web accelerator for any website and it disturbs 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 provided with all semi-dedicated hosting packages because it is pre-installed on the cloud website hosting platform where your account will be created. In case you'd like to use this module, you'll be able to activate it with a single click in your Hepsia Control Panel and it will be fully functional in a couple of minutes. As you may want to use some other web accelerators for selected websites, our leading-edge platform will allow you to customize the software environment inside your account. You'll 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 employing PHP 5.4 and a WordPress site could 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 can run websites with various requirements from the same account.
