APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module that caches the output code of database-driven script applications. Dynamic PHP websites keep their content within a database which is accessed whenever a visitor loads a webpage. The content that needs to be displayed is gathered and the code is parsed and compiled before it's delivered to the visitor. All these actions need some processing time and involve reading and writing on the web server for each and every page which is loaded. While this cannot be avoided for Internet sites with regularly changing content, there're numerous Internet sites that present the very same content on a lot of of their webpages at all times - blogs, info portals, hotel and restaurant sites, etc. APC is quite useful for this type of Internet sites since it caches the previously compiled code and shows it every time visitors browse the cached webpages, so the code does not have to be parsed and compiled repeatedly. This will not only greatly reduce the server load, but it will also raise the speed of any website several times.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Shared Website Hosting

APC is available with each and every shared website hosting solution that we offer and you could activate it with only a click from your Hepsia Control Panel if you'd like to use it for your web apps. A couple of minutes later the framework will be working and you will be able to take advantage of the faster loading speed of your database-driven websites. As we provide different versions of PHP that can also be selected from Hepsia, you will even be able to employ APC for scripts that require different versions of PHP within the very same account. Our leading-edge cloud Internet hosting platform is very adaptable, so if you use another web accelerator for any website and it disrupts APC, you'll be able to activate or deactivate the latter for a specific site only by using a php.ini file created in the domain or subdomain folder.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Servers

APC is provided with all semi-dedicated server plans as it is pre-installed on the cloud hosting platform where your account will be created. In case you would like to use this module, you will be able to activate it with just a single click in your Hepsia Control Panel and it'll be fully operational in a couple of minutes. As you may want to use some other web accelerators for selected Internet sites, our cutting-edge platform will permit you to customize the software environment inside your account. You will be able to activate APC for different releases of PHP or use it just for some sites and not for others. For example, a Drupal-based site can work with APC using PHP 5.4 and a WordPress website can function without APC employing PHP 5.6. What is needed to do the aforementioned is a php.ini file with a few lines in it, so you will be able to run Internet sites with different requirements in the same account.
