APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module which caches the output code of database-driven script apps. Dynamic PHP websites store their content inside a database which is accessed whenever a visitor opens a webpage. The content that should be viewed is gathered and the code is parsed and compiled before it's delivered to the site visitor. These actions take some processing time and include reading and writing on the server for each page that is opened. While this cannot be avoided for sites with regularly changing content material, there're various Internet sites which have the exact same content on many of their pages all of the time - blogs, info portals, hotel and restaurant websites, and many others. APC is really useful for such sites since it caches the previously compiled code and displays it whenever visitors browse the cached webpages, so the code doesn't need to be parsed and compiled again. Not only will this decrease the server load, but it will also increase the speed of any Internet site a few times.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Web Hosting

You can use APC for your web applications with any of the cloud web hosting packages that we offer because it's pre-installed on our cloud website hosting platform. Turning it on will take only a click inside the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with our shared plans and a couple of minutes later it'll start caching the code of your software applications. Our platform is rather flexible, so you'll be able to use several configurations determined by the system requirements of the scripts. For instance, you will be able to activate APC for a couple of releases of PHP for the entire account and set the version that each website will use, or you could have the same version of PHP, but enable or disable APC just for specific websites. 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 Servers

APC is available with all semi-dedicated server solutions since it's pre-installed on the cloud website hosting platform where your account will be created. In case you'd like to use this module, you will be able to enable it with a single click in your Hepsia Control Panel and it'll be fully operational within a few minutes. Since you may want to use alternative web accelerators for selected Internet sites, our advanced platform will permit you to customize the software environment in your account. You'll be able to activate APC for different releases of PHP or use it only for some sites and not for others. For example, a Drupal-based website could work with APC employing PHP 5.4 and a WordPress site can 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'll be able to run websites with various requirements inside the exact same account.
