APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module which caches the output code of database-driven script software applications. Dynamic PHP Internet sites store their content inside a database which is accessed whenever a visitor loads a webpage. The content which needs to be shown is retrieved and the code is parsed and compiled before it is delivered to the visitor. These actions need some processing time and require reading and writing on the web server for every single page which is accessed. While this can't be avoided for websites with constantly changing content material, there're numerous Internet sites that feature the very same content on a number of of their pages all of the time - blogs, info portals, hotel and restaurant websites, etc. APC is extremely useful for such sites since it caches the already compiled code and shows it any time visitors browse the cached webpages, so the code does not have to be parsed and compiled all over again. This will not only decrease the server load, but it will also increase the speed of any Internet site many times.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Shared Website Hosting

You can use APC with each shared website hosting plan that we provide since it's already set up on our advanced cloud platform and activating it will take you only a few clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. Since our platform is extremely flexible, you can run Internet sites with various system requirements and decide if they will work with APC or not. For instance, you could allow APC only for one version of PHP or you could do the latter for several of the releases running on our platform. In addition, you can choose if all websites working with a certain PHP version will use APC or if the latter will be enabled just for selected websites and not for all websites in the web hosting account. The aforementioned option is useful when you need to employ a different web accelerator for several of your Internet sites. These customizations are carried out without any difficulty 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 hosting platform where your account shall be created. If you wish to use this module, you can activate it with just a single click inside your Hepsia Control Panel and it'll be fully operational in a few minutes. Since you may want to use some other web accelerators for selected Internet sites, our outstanding platform will permit you to customize the software environment inside your account. You can activate APC for different versions of PHP or use it just for some Internet sites and not for others. For instance, a Drupal-based website can function with APC employing PHP 5.4 and a WordPress site could work without APC using PHP 5.6. What is needed to do the latter is a php.ini file with a couple of lines in it, so you will be able to run websites with different requirements in the very same account.
