APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module which caches the output code of database-driven script software apps. Dynamic PHP sites store their content inside a database that is accessed whenever a visitor loads a webpage. The content that needs to be shown is retrieved and the code is parsed and compiled prior to it being delivered to the website visitor. All of these actions need some processing time and involve reading and writing on the hosting server for each and every page which is loaded. While this can't be avoided for Internet sites with regularly changing content material, there're various websites which feature the very same content on a number of of their webpages constantly - blogs, informational portals, hotel and restaurant sites, and many others. APC is extremely useful for this kind of sites since it caches the previously compiled code and displays it any time visitors browse the cached webpages, so the code does not have to be parsed and compiled all over again. Not only will this lower the server load, but it will also raise the speed of any Internet site a few times.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Web Hosting

You can use APC for your web applications with any of the web hosting plans that we offer since it is pre-installed on our cloud website hosting platform. Enabling it will take just a mouse click inside the Hepsia Control Panel which is provided with our shared plans and a few minutes later it will start caching the program code of your apps. Our platform is quite flexible, so you will be able to use different configurations determined by the system requirements of the scripts. For example, you'll be able to activate APC for several versions of PHP for the entire account and set the version that each website will use, or you can have the exact same version of PHP, but activate or deactivate APC only for specified Internet sites. This is done by putting a php.ini file with a line of code inside the domain or subdomain folder where you need the custom configuration.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Servers

APC is available with all semi-dedicated server plans since it's pre-installed on the cloud website hosting platform where your account will be created. If you want to use this module, you will be able to activate it with a single click in your Hepsia Control Panel and it will be fully functional in a few minutes. As you may want to use some other web accelerators for selected Internet sites, our outstanding platform will enable you to personalize the software environment inside your account. You'll be able to activate APC for different releases of PHP or use it only for some sites and not for others. For instance, a Drupal-based website can function with APC using PHP 5.4 and a WordPress site can function without APC using PHP 5.6. All it takes to do the aforementioned is a php.ini file with a few lines in it, so you'll be able to run sites with various requirements inside the very same account.
