APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module that caches the output code of database-driven script software apps. Dynamic PHP sites store their content within a database that is accessed whenever a visitor opens a webpage. The content which has to be displayed is retrieved and the code is parsed and compiled before it is delivered to the site visitor. All of these actions need some processing time and require reading and writing on the server for every single page which is opened. While this cannot be avoided for websites with regularly changing content, there're a lot of sites which feature the exact same content on a lot of of their pages all the time - blogs, informational portals, hotel and restaurant sites, etcetera. APC is exceptionally useful for this kind of websites since it caches the already compiled code and displays it each time visitors browse the cached webpages, so the code does not have to be parsed and compiled repeatedly. This will not only minimize the server load, but it will also increase the speed of any Internet site many times.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Shared Hosting

You can use APC with every single shared hosting package that we provide because it is already present on our advanced cloud platform and activating it will take you only a few clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. As our platform is really flexible, you'll be able to run sites with different system requirements and decide whether they will use APC or not. For example, you could allow APC only for one version of PHP or you can do the latter for several of the versions running on the platform. You can also select if all Internet sites using a specific PHP version will use APC or if the latter will be active only for selected sites and not for all sites in the website hosting account. The last option is useful when you need to employ a different web accelerator for several of your Internet sites. These customizations are performed without any difficulty via 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 packages as 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 will be able to 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 advanced platform will allow you to customize the software environment in 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 could work with APC using PHP 5.4 and a WordPress site could work without APC employing PHP 5.6. All it takes to do the latter is a php.ini file with a couple of lines in it, so you can run Internet sites with various requirements inside the very same account.
