APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module which caches the output code of database-driven script apps. Dynamic PHP sites keep their content within a database that is accessed whenever a visitor loads a webpage. The content that should be displayed is retrieved and the code is parsed and compiled before it is delivered to the site visitor. These actions need some processing time and involve reading and writing on the web server for each page that is loaded. While this can't be avoided for websites with constantly changing content, there're a lot of Internet sites that offer the very same content on a lot of of their pages constantly - blogs, informational portals, hotel and restaurant Internet sites, etcetera. APC is exceptionally useful for this kind of Internet sites since it caches the already compiled code and shows it every time visitors browse the cached webpages, so the code doesn't need to be parsed and compiled all over again. This will not only minimize the server load, but it'll also raise the speed of any website several times.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Web Hosting

You'll be able to employ APC for your web applications with all of the cloud web hosting plans that we provide since it's pre-installed on our cloud website hosting platform. Enabling it will take just a single click inside the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with our shared plans and several minutes later it will begin caching the code of your applications. Our platform is very flexible, so you'll be able to use several configurations based on the system requirements of your scripts. For example, you'll be able to activate APC for several versions of PHP for the entire account and specify the version that each site can use, or you could have the very same version of PHP, but activate or deactivate APC only for specified sites. You can do this by putting a php.ini file with a line of code inside the domain or subdomain folder where you require the customized configuration.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting

APC is available with all semi-dedicated hosting plans 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 just a single click inside your Hepsia Control Panel and it will be fully functional in a few minutes. Since you may want to use other web accelerators for selected websites, our outstanding platform will enable you to personalize 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 instance, a Drupal-based Internet site could work with APC employing PHP 5.4 and a WordPress site can work without APC using PHP 5.6. What is needed to do the aforementioned is a php.ini file with a few lines in it, so you will be able to run sites with various requirements in the same account.
