APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module which caches the output code of database-driven script apps. Dynamic PHP websites keep their content within a database which is accessed whenever a visitor loads a webpage. The content which has to be viewed is retrieved and the code is parsed and compiled before it's delivered to the visitor. All these actions need some processing time and require reading and writing on the web server for each page that is accessed. While this can't be avoided for Internet sites with regularly changing content material, there are a lot of Internet sites which have the very same content on many of their pages constantly - blogs, informational portals, hotel and restaurant Internet sites, etc. APC is extremely useful for this kind of sites as it caches the previously compiled code and shows it whenever visitors browse the cached webpages, so the code doesn't have to be parsed and compiled repeatedly. This will not only reduce the server load, but it will also raise the speed of any site several times.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Shared Web Hosting

You can use APC with every single shared web hosting plan that we offer as it is already installed on our advanced cloud platform and enabling it will take you just a couple of clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. Since our system is rather flexible, you'll be able to run websites with different system requirements and decide if they will use APC or not. For instance, you could activate APC only for one version of PHP or you could do the latter for several of the releases running on the platform. It's also possible to select if all Internet sites using a specific PHP version will use APC or whether the latter will be enabled just for selected Internet sites and not for all Internet sites in the web hosting account. The aforementioned option is useful if you intend to employ a different web accelerator for several of your Internet sites. These customizations are performed with ease by using a php.ini file in selected domain or subdomain folders.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting

APC is available with all semi-dedicated hosting packages because it's pre-installed on the cloud website hosting platform where your account will be created. If you want to use this module, you can enable it with just a single click inside your Hepsia Control Panel and it will be fully operational in a few minutes. Since you may need to use other web accelerators for selected websites, our leading-edge platform will enable you to personalize the software environment inside your account. You can activate APC for different releases of PHP or use it only for some Internet sites and not for others. For example, a Drupal-based Internet site can function with APC using PHP 5.4 and a WordPress site could work without APC using PHP 5.6. What is needed to do the aforementioned is a php.ini file with a few lines in it, so you can run Internet sites with various requirements from the very same account.
