APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module which caches the output code of database-driven script applications. Dynamic PHP sites keep their content within a database which is accessed whenever a visitor loads a page. The content that should be displayed is retrieved and the code is parsed and compiled before it's delivered to the website visitor. All of these actions take some processing time and involve reading and writing on the web server for every single page that is loaded. While this can't be avoided for Internet sites with constantly changing content, there're various websites which offer the very same content on many of their webpages at all times - blogs, informational portals, hotel and restaurant sites, and many others. APC is really useful for such sites as it caches the already compiled code and shows it each time visitors browse the cached webpages, so the code doesn't need to be parsed and compiled repeatedly. This will not only minimize the server load, but it will also raise the speed of any website a few times.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Hosting

APC is pre-installed on our outstanding cloud platform, so you'll be able to use it for your applications irrespective of the cloud hosting plan that you pick 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 just a few minutes later it'll boost your Internet sites because it will start caching their code. If you need to run Internet sites with various system requirements or use specific web accelerators for any of them, you will be able to customize the software environment by putting a php.ini file inside the preferred domain folder. This way, you can enable or disable APC not only for a particular site without affecting the other websites in the account, but also for a certain version of PHP since our platform supports multiple versions at the same time.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting

APC is available with all semi-dedicated hosting packages as it's pre-installed on the cloud website hosting platform where your account will be created. If you'd like to use this module, you can activate it with a single click from your Hepsia Control Panel and it will be fully functional in a few minutes. Since you may need to use alternative web accelerators for selected sites, our outstanding platform will allow you to customize the software environment inside your account. You will be able to activate APC for different versions of PHP or use it just for some Internet sites and not for others. For example, a Drupal-based site can work with APC employing PHP 5.4 and a WordPress site can work without APC using PHP 5.6. What is needed to do that is a php.ini file with several lines in it, so you will be able to run websites with various requirements from the exact same account.
