APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module that caches the output code of database-driven script applications. Dynamic PHP sites keep their content within a database which is accessed whenever a visitor opens a page. The content that should be viewed is retrieved and the code is parsed and compiled before it is delivered to the visitor. All of these actions take some processing time and include reading and writing on the web server for each page that is opened. While this cannot be avoided for Internet sites with constantly changing content material, there are numerous websites which feature the exact same content on a lot of of their webpages all the time - blogs, info portals, hotel and restaurant Internet sites, etc. APC is quite useful for this type of websites as it caches the previously compiled code and displays it any time visitors browse the cached webpages, so the code does not need to be parsed and compiled again. Not only will this minimize the server load, but it'll also increase the speed of any site several times.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Website Hosting

APC is pre-installed on our advanced cloud platform, so you'll be able to use it for your applications regardless of the cloud website hosting plan that you choose when you register. The module can be activated through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel which is used to control the shared accounts and only a few minutes later it'll speed up your websites as it will begin caching their code. If you would like to run websites with different system requirements or employ different web accelerators for some of them, you can customize the software environment by putting a php.ini file inside the desired domain folder. This way, you could enable or disable APC not only for a particular site without affecting the remaining Internet sites 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 Servers

APC is available with all semi-dedicated server solutions since it's pre-installed on the cloud hosting platform where your account shall be created. If you would like to use this module, you'll be able to activate it with a single click inside your Hepsia Control Panel and it'll be fully operational within a couple of minutes. Since you may need to use some other web accelerators for selected Internet sites, our advanced platform will allow you to personalize the software environment inside your account. You'll be able to activate APC for different versions of PHP or use it only for some websites and not for others. For example, a Drupal-based website can function with APC employing PHP 5.4 and a WordPress website could work without APC employing PHP 5.6. What is needed to do the aforementioned is a php.ini file with a couple of lines in it, so you will be able to run sites with various requirements in the same account.
