APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module that caches the output code of database-driven script software applications. Dynamic PHP Internet sites hold their content inside a database that is accessed whenever a visitor opens a webpage. The content that needs to be shown is retrieved and the code is parsed and compiled prior to it being delivered to the site visitor. These actions need some processing time and require reading and writing on the server for each page that is accessed. While this can't be avoided for sites with regularly changing content material, there're numerous Internet sites that present the very same content on a number of of their pages at all times - blogs, info portals, hotel and restaurant sites, etc. APC is quite useful for this kind of websites since it caches the already compiled code and shows it every time visitors browse the cached pages, so the code does not need to be parsed and compiled all over again. Not only will this decrease the server load, but it will also raise the speed of any Internet site several times.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Web Hosting

APC is pre-installed on our advanced cloud platform, which means that you'll be able to use it for your web applications whatever the cloud web hosting plan that you pick when you register. The module can be activated through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is used to control the shared accounts and only several minutes later it will speed up your Internet sites as it'll begin caching their code. In case you wish to run Internet sites with different system requirements or employ specific web accelerators for some of them, you'll be able to customize the software environment by putting a php.ini file in the desired domain folder. Thus, you can enable or disable APC not only for a certain Internet site without affecting the other sites in the account, but also for a certain version of PHP as our platform supports multiple versions simultaneously.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting

APC is available with all semi-dedicated hosting packages since it's pre-installed on the cloud website hosting platform where your account will be created. If you'd like 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 functional within a couple of minutes. Since you may want to use some other web accelerators for selected websites, our leading-edge platform will allow you to customize the software environment in your account. You can activate APC for different releases of PHP or use it just for some Internet sites and not for others. For instance, a Drupal-based site can function with APC using PHP 5.4 and a WordPress website can function without APC using PHP 5.6. What is needed to do the latter is a php.ini file with several lines in it, so you can run websites with various requirements from the very same account.
