APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module which caches the output code of database-driven script software applications. Dynamic PHP Internet sites store their content within a database that is accessed whenever a visitor loads a webpage. The content that needs to be viewed is retrieved and the code is parsed and compiled before it's delivered to the visitor. These actions need some processing time and involve reading and writing on the server for each and every page which is accessed. While this can't be avoided for websites with constantly changing content material, there are various Internet sites which present the exact same content on a lot of of their webpages all of the time - blogs, info portals, hotel and restaurant websites, etcetera. APC is extremely useful for this type of sites since it caches the already compiled code and displays it when visitors browse the cached webpages, so the code doesn't need to be parsed and compiled again. This will not only minimize the server load, but it'll also increase the speed of any Internet site several times.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Hosting

You can use APC with each and every cloud hosting package that we provide as it is already present on our advanced cloud platform and enabling it will take you just a few clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. As our system is rather flexible, you can run sites with different requirements and decide if they will work with APC or not. For instance, you could activate APC only for a single release of PHP or you could do the latter for several of the versions that run on the platform. It's also possible to select if all Internet sites working with a given PHP version will use APC or if the latter will be enabled only for selected sites and not for all websites in the hosting account. The last option is useful when you wish to employ a different web accelerator for some of your websites. These customizations are performed effortlessly by using a php.ini file in selected domain or subdomain folders.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting

APC is available with all semi-dedicated hosting plans because it's pre-installed on the cloud website hosting platform where your account will be created. If you would like to use this module, you'll be able to enable it with just a single click in your Hepsia Control Panel and it will be fully operational in a couple of minutes. As you may want to use other web accelerators for selected sites, our state-of-the-art platform will allow you to personalize the software environment inside your account. You can activate APC for different versions of PHP or use it just for some sites and not for others. For instance, a Drupal-based website could work with APC employing PHP 5.4 and a WordPress site can work without APC employing PHP 5.6. What is needed to do that is a php.ini file with a few lines in it, so you'll be able to run websites with various requirements inside the same account.
