APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module which caches the output code of database-driven script software apps. Dynamic PHP Internet sites save their content within a database that is accessed whenever a visitor opens a webpage. The content which has to be shown is gathered and the code is parsed and compiled before it is delivered to the visitor. All of these actions take some processing time and involve reading and writing on the web server for every single page which is loaded. While this cannot be avoided for sites with regularly changing content material, there are various websites that present the very same content on many of their webpages at all times - blogs, info portals, hotel and restaurant Internet sites, and many others. APC is quite useful for this type of sites as it caches the already compiled code and shows it each time visitors browse the cached pages, so the code does not need to be parsed and compiled repeatedly. This will not only lower the server load, but it will also boost the speed of any Internet site a few times.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Hosting

APC is pre-installed on our state-of-the-art cloud platform, so you will be able to use it for your web applications regardless of the hosting solution that you select when you join us. The module can be enabled through the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel that is used to maintain the shared accounts and only a couple of minutes later it'll boost your Internet sites since it'll begin caching their program code. In case you need to run sites with various system requirements or employ specific web accelerators for some of them, you could customize the software environment by placing a php.ini file inside the desired domain folder. In this way, you could enable or disable APC not only for a certain Internet site without affecting the other websites in the account, but also for a specific version of PHP since our platform is compatible with multiple versions simultaneously.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Servers

APC is available with all semi-dedicated server solutions as it's pre-installed on the cloud hosting platform where your account shall be created. If you'd like to use this module, you will be able to enable it with a single click from your Hepsia Control Panel and it will be fully operational within a few minutes. Since you may want to use alternative web accelerators for selected sites, our cutting-edge platform will allow you to personalize the software environment in your account. You will be able to activate APC for different releases of PHP or use it only for some Internet sites and not for others. For instance, a Drupal-based website can work with APC employing PHP 5.4 and a WordPress site can work without APC using 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 websites with various requirements inside the very same account.
