APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module which caches the output code of database-driven script apps. Dynamic PHP sites store their content inside a database that is accessed whenever a visitor opens a webpage. The content which should be shown is retrieved and the code is parsed and compiled before it is delivered to the website visitor. These actions need some processing time and involve reading and writing on the server for every single page which is accessed. While this cannot be avoided for sites with constantly changing content, there're a lot of sites which feature the very same content on many of their webpages at all times - blogs, info portals, hotel and restaurant Internet sites, etcetera. APC is really useful for such websites as it caches the previously compiled code and displays it any time visitors browse the cached webpages, so the code does not need to be parsed and compiled again. This will not only reduce the server load, but it'll also increase the speed of any site several times.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Shared Hosting

APC is available with each shared hosting package that we offer and you could activate it with just a click through your Hepsia Control Panel if you wish to use it for your web apps. A few minutes later the framework will be active and you'll notice the quicker loading speed of your database-driven websites. As we provide different releases of PHP that could also be selected from Hepsia, you will even be able to employ APC for scripts that require different versions of PHP in the very same account. Our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform is extremely flexible, so in case you use a different web accelerator for any website and it disrupts APC, you could activate or deactivate the aforementioned for a selected 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 as it is pre-installed on the cloud website hosting platform where your account shall be created. In case you want to use this module, you can activate it with just a single click from your Hepsia Control Panel and it will be fully functional in a few minutes. Since you may need to use some other web accelerators for selected websites, our leading-edge platform will allow you to customize the software environment in your account. You'll be able to activate APC for different versions 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 employing PHP 5.4 and a WordPress site can function without APC using PHP 5.6. All it takes to do the latter is a php.ini file with a few lines in it, so you will be able to run Internet sites with various requirements from the very same account.
