APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module that caches the output code of database-driven script software applications. Dynamic PHP sites hold their content inside a database which is accessed whenever a visitor opens a page. The content which has to be displayed is retrieved and the code is parsed and compiled before it's delivered to the website visitor. These actions need some processing time and require reading and writing on the server for every single page that is opened. While this cannot be avoided for Internet sites with regularly changing content material, there're numerous Internet sites which feature the same content on a lot of of their pages constantly - blogs, info portals, hotel and restaurant Internet sites, etcetera. APC is really useful for this type of sites as it caches the already compiled code and displays it any time visitors browse the cached pages, so the code does not have to be parsed and compiled again. This will not only decrease the server load, but it will also boost the speed of any site several times.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Shared Website Hosting

You can use APC with each and every shared website hosting plan that we offer since it's already installed on our advanced cloud platform and activating it will take you just a couple of clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. Since our platform is really flexible, you will be able to run sites with various system requirements and decide whether they will work with APC or not. For example, you can enable APC only for one release of PHP or you can do the latter for several of the versions running on our platform. It's also possible to choose if all websites working with a particular PHP version will use APC or whether the latter will be active only for selected websites and not for all sites in the hosting account. The aforementioned option is useful when you need to employ a different web accelerator for some of your sites. These customizations are performed without difficulty through a php.ini file in selected domain or subdomain folders.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting

APC is provided with all semi-dedicated hosting solutions because it's pre-installed on the cloud hosting platform where your account will be created. In case you want to use this module, you can activate it with just a single click inside your Hepsia Control Panel and it will be fully functional within a couple of minutes. As you may need to use some other web accelerators for selected websites, our advanced platform will allow 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 websites and not for others. For instance, a Drupal-based website can function with APC using PHP 5.4 and a WordPress website can function without APC employing PHP 5.6. What is needed to do the latter is a php.ini file with a few lines in it, so you'll be able to run sites with various requirements in the exact same account.
