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 in a database which is accessed whenever a visitor loads a page. The content which has to be shown is gathered and the code is parsed and compiled prior to it being delivered to the website visitor. These actions need some processing time and involve reading and writing on the web server for each and every page which is loaded. While this cannot be avoided for websites with constantly changing content material, there're a lot of websites which present the same content on a number of of their webpages all the time - blogs, info portals, hotel and restaurant websites, etcetera. APC is very useful for such sites since it caches the previously compiled code and shows it any time visitors browse the cached webpages, so the code doesn't have to be parsed and compiled again. This will not only decrease the server load, but it will also increase the speed of any site a few times.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Web Hosting

APC is pre-installed on our state-of-the-art cloud platform, therefore you will be able to use it for your web applications regardless of the cloud web hosting solution that you pick when you register. The module can be enabled from the Hepsia internet hosting Control Panel which is used to handle the shared accounts and only a couple of minutes later it will boost your Internet sites since it'll begin caching their code. If you would like to run websites with various system requirements or take advantage of specific web accelerators for some of them, you'll be able to customize the software environment by placing a php.ini file inside the preferred domain folder. This way, you can enable or disable APC not only for a particular site without affecting the other websites in the account, but also for a particular version of PHP as our platform supports multiple versions at the same time.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting

APC is available with all semi-dedicated hosting packages 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 will be able to activate it with a single click in your Hepsia Control Panel and it'll be fully operational in a couple of minutes. As you may need to use some other web accelerators for selected Internet sites, our advanced platform will permit you to customize the software environment in your account. You will be able to activate APC for different versions of PHP or use it just for some websites and not for others. For instance, a Drupal-based site can work with APC using PHP 5.4 and a WordPress site could work without APC using PHP 5.6. All it takes to do that is a php.ini file with a couple of lines in it, so you will be able to run Internet sites with various requirements inside the same account.
