APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module that caches the output code of database-driven script applications. Dynamic PHP websites keep their content in a database that is accessed whenever a visitor opens a webpage. The content which should be displayed is retrieved and the code is parsed and compiled before it is delivered to the visitor. These actions take some processing time and include reading and writing on the hosting server for each and every page which is accessed. While this cannot be avoided for Internet sites with regularly changing content material, there are many sites which have the same content on a lot of of their pages all the time - blogs, informational portals, hotel and restaurant websites, etcetera. APC is extremely useful for such websites since it caches the already compiled code and displays it every time visitors browse the cached pages, so the code does not have to be parsed and compiled repeatedly. Not only will this minimize the server load, but it'll also raise the speed of any Internet site a few times.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Website Hosting

You can use APC with each and every cloud website hosting package that we provide since it is already set up on our advanced cloud platform and enabling it will take you just a couple of clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. Since our system is extremely flexible, you can run websites with various requirements and decide if they will use APC or not. For instance, you can enable APC only for a single version of PHP or you could do this for several of the versions running on the platform. It's also possible to decide if all Internet sites using a certain PHP version will use APC or whether the latter will be active only for selected Internet sites and not for all sites in the web hosting account. The last option is useful if you would like to employ a different web accelerator for some of your Internet sites. These customizations are carried out without any difficulty through a php.ini file in selected domain or subdomain folders.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting

APC is provided with all semi-dedicated hosting solutions because it's pre-installed on the cloud 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'll be fully operational within a few minutes. As you may want to use alternative web accelerators for selected sites, our advanced platform will permit you to customize the software environment inside your account. You'll be able to activate APC for different versions of PHP or use it only for some sites and not for others. For example, a Drupal-based Internet site can function with APC employing PHP 5.4 and a WordPress site can work without APC employing PHP 5.6. All it takes to do the aforementioned 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 same account.
