APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module that caches the output code of database-driven script software apps. Dynamic PHP Internet sites hold their content within a database which is accessed whenever a visitor loads a webpage. The content that needs to be displayed is gathered and the code is parsed and compiled before it's delivered to the visitor. All of these actions take some processing time and require reading and writing on the hosting server for every single page which is loaded. While this can't be avoided for websites with constantly changing content, there are numerous sites that feature the exact same content on many of their pages at all times - blogs, informational portals, hotel and restaurant Internet sites, and many others. APC is quite useful for this type of Internet sites as it caches the previously compiled code and shows it each time visitors browse the cached webpages, so the code does not need to be parsed and compiled all over again. This will not only lower the server load, but it'll also increase the speed of any site several times.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Hosting

APC is available with each hosting package that we offer and you can activate it with just a click through your Hepsia Control Panel if you would like to use it for your web applications. Several minutes later the framework will be working and you will experience the faster loading speed of your database-driven sites. As we offer different releases of PHP that can also be selected from Hepsia, you'll even be able to to employ APC for scripts that need different versions of PHP inside the very same account. Our leading-edge cloud Internet hosting platform is very flexible, so in case you use some other web accelerator for any Internet site and it interferes with APC, you'll be able to activate or deactivate the latter for a selected site only by using a php.ini file created in the domain or subdomain folder.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting

APC is provided with all semi-dedicated hosting plans as it's pre-installed on the cloud hosting platform where your account will be created. In case you wish to use this module, you can enable 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 some other web accelerators for selected Internet sites, our advanced platform will permit you to customize the software environment inside your account. You can activate APC for different releases of PHP or use it just for some websites and not for others. For instance, a Drupal-based site can work with APC employing PHP 5.4 and a WordPress website can work without APC employing PHP 5.6. All it takes to do the latter is a php.ini file with a few lines in it, so you can run websites with different requirements inside the exact same account.
