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 that is accessed whenever a visitor opens a page. The content that should be displayed is retrieved and the code is parsed and compiled before it's delivered to the website visitor. All these actions take some processing time and include reading and writing on the server for each page which is opened. While this cannot be avoided for Internet sites with constantly changing content material, there are various sites which have the exact same content on many of their webpages constantly - blogs, info portals, hotel and restaurant websites, etcetera. APC is extremely useful for this type of Internet sites as it caches the previously compiled code and displays it every time visitors browse the cached pages, so the code doesn't have to be parsed and compiled again. Not only will this reduce the server load, but it'll also raise the speed of any Internet site many times.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Web Hosting

APC is pre-installed on our leading-edge cloud platform, so you can use it for your web applications whatever the cloud web hosting solution that you pick when you join us. The module can be activated through the Hepsia internet hosting Control Panel that is used to take care of the shared accounts and only a couple of minutes later it will speed up your websites as it'll begin caching their code. If you would like to run websites with various 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 desired domain folder. In this way, you can enable or disable APC not only for a specific site without affecting the other Internet sites in the account, but also for a particular version of PHP because our platform supports multiple versions at the same time.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Servers

APC is provided with all semi-dedicated server plans since it is pre-installed on the cloud hosting platform where your account will be created. If you'd like to use this module, you will be able to activate it with just a single click from your Hepsia Control Panel and it will be fully operational within a few minutes. As you may want to use other web accelerators for selected sites, our cutting-edge platform will permit you to personalize the software environment in 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 could work with APC using PHP 5.4 and a WordPress site could work without APC using PHP 5.6. All it takes to do the latter is a php.ini file with a couple of lines in it, so you will be able to run Internet sites with different requirements from the very same account.
