APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module that caches the output code of database-driven script software applications. Dynamic PHP sites store their content within a database that is accessed whenever a visitor opens a page. The content that should be displayed is gathered and the code is parsed and compiled before it's delivered to the website visitor. All of these actions take some processing time and require reading and writing on the server for each and every page which is opened. While this cannot be avoided for Internet sites with constantly changing content material, there are numerous Internet sites which present the very same content on a lot of of their pages all of the time - blogs, informational portals, hotel and restaurant Internet sites, etc. APC is extremely useful for this type of sites because it caches the already compiled code and displays it every time visitors browse the cached webpages, so the code does not have to be parsed and compiled repeatedly. Not only will this decrease the server load, but it'll also boost the speed of any website many times.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Hosting

APC is available with every single hosting solution that we offer and you can enable it with just a click through your Hepsia Control Panel if you'd like to use it for your web applications. Several minutes later the framework will be working and you will notice the quicker loading speed of your database-driven sites. As we offer different versions of PHP that could also be selected through Hepsia, you will even be able to employ APC for scripts which require different versions of PHP in the very same account. Our state-of-the-art cloud hosting platform is extremely flexible, so if you use a different web accelerator for any website 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 generated in the domain or subdomain folder.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting

APC is provided with all semi-dedicated hosting packages since it's pre-installed on the cloud website hosting platform where your account will be created. In case you want to use this module, you can enable it with a single click inside your Hepsia Control Panel and it will be fully operational within a few minutes. As you may want to use some other web accelerators for selected Internet sites, our outstanding platform will allow you to customize the software environment inside your account. You will be able to activate APC for different versions of PHP or use it only for some websites and not for others. For instance, a Drupal-based Internet site could work with APC using PHP 5.4 and a WordPress site could work without APC using PHP 5.6. What is needed to do the latter is a php.ini file with a couple of lines in it, so you'll be able to run sites with different requirements from the very same account.
