APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module which caches the output code of database-driven script apps. Dynamic PHP websites hold their content within a database that is accessed whenever a visitor opens a page. The content which should be displayed is gathered and the code is parsed and compiled before it is delivered to the website visitor. These actions need some processing time and involve reading and writing on the server for each page which is accessed. While this can't be avoided for websites with regularly changing content material, there are numerous sites that have the exact same content on a number of of their webpages all of the time - blogs, informational portals, hotel and restaurant Internet sites, etcetera. APC is quite useful for this type of sites as it caches the previously compiled code and displays it every time visitors browse the cached pages, so the code doesn't need to be parsed and compiled all over again. This will not only reduce the server load, but it'll also increase the speed of any website many times.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Hosting

You can use APC with each cloud hosting package that we provide because 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 platform is really flexible, you can run websites with various system requirements and decide whether they will work with APC or not. For instance, you can activate APC only for one release of PHP or you could do the latter for several of the releases that run on the platform. You can also choose if all Internet sites using a certain PHP version will use APC or if the latter will be active only for selected sites and not for all sites in the hosting account. The aforementioned option is useful if you would like to employ a different web accelerator for some of your websites. These customizations are performed without any difficulty 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 as it's pre-installed on the cloud website hosting platform where your account shall be created. If you would like to use this module, you can activate it with just a single click in your Hepsia Control Panel and it'll be fully operational within a few minutes. As you may need to use alternative web accelerators for selected Internet sites, our leading-edge platform will allow you to personalize the software environment inside your account. You'll be able to activate APC for different releases of PHP or use it only for some Internet sites and not for others. For example, a Drupal-based Internet site could work with APC employing PHP 5.4 and a WordPress site can function without APC using PHP 5.6. All it takes to do that is a php.ini file with several lines in it, so you could run Internet sites with different requirements from the same account.
