APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module that caches the output code of database-driven script software apps. Dynamic PHP sites save their content inside a database which is accessed whenever a visitor opens a webpage. The content that should be viewed is gathered and the code is parsed and compiled before it's delivered to the website visitor. All of these actions take some processing time and require reading and writing on the web server for every single page that is opened. While this can't be avoided for sites with constantly changing content material, there are a lot of Internet sites which feature the same content on many of their pages constantly - blogs, informational portals, hotel and restaurant Internet sites, and many others. APC is really useful for this kind of sites since it caches the previously compiled code and displays it each time visitors browse the cached pages, so the code does not need to be parsed and compiled all over again. Not only will this lower the server load, but it will also boost the speed of any site several times.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Website Hosting

APC is pre-installed on our cutting-edge cloud platform, so you can use it for your applications regardless of the website hosting solution that you pick when you register. The module can be activated through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel which is used to control the shared accounts and only several minutes later it'll speed up your sites because it'll start caching their program code. In case you need to run Internet sites with different system requirements or use different web accelerators for some of them, you will be able to customize the software environment by placing a php.ini file in the preferred domain folder. Thus, you can enable or disable APC not just for a certain website without affecting the other websites in the account, but also for a certain version of PHP because 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 is pre-installed on the cloud website hosting platform where your account shall be created. If you'd like to use this module, you can activate it with just a single click inside your Hepsia Control Panel and it will be fully functional in a few minutes. Since you may need to use other web accelerators for selected Internet sites, our leading-edge platform will allow you to customize the software environment inside your account. You'll be able to activate APC for different releases of PHP or use it only for some websites and not for others. For example, a Drupal-based website could work with APC using PHP 5.4 and a WordPress website can function without APC using PHP 5.6. All it takes to do that is a php.ini file with several lines in it, so you can run Internet sites with different requirements from the very same account.
