APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module which caches the output code of database-driven script software applications. Dynamic PHP websites keep their content inside a database that is accessed whenever a visitor opens a page. The content which should be viewed is retrieved and the code is parsed and compiled before it's delivered to the visitor. These actions take some processing time and involve reading and writing on the server for each page that is accessed. While this can't be avoided for websites with regularly changing content material, there are various sites that feature the same content on many of their webpages all the time - blogs, informational portals, hotel and restaurant sites, etcetera. APC is very useful for such websites because it caches the already compiled code and shows it each time visitors browse the cached webpages, so the code doesn't need to be parsed and compiled repeatedly. This will not only decrease the server load, but it'll also boost the speed of any Internet site several times.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Shared Hosting

APC is available with every single shared hosting package that we offer and you can enable it with only a click from your Hepsia Control Panel if you would like to use it for your applications. A couple of minutes later the framework will be active and you'll notice the considerably quicker loading speed of your database-driven websites. Since we provide different releases of PHP that can also be selected from Hepsia, you will even be able to employ APC for scripts which need different versions of PHP inside the very same account. Our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform is very adaptable, so in case you use some other web accelerator for any Internet site and it disturbs APC, you'll be able to activate or deactivate the aforementioned for a specific site only by using a php.ini file created in the domain or subdomain folder.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Servers

APC is available with all semi-dedicated server plans 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 can activate it with just a single click in your Hepsia Control Panel and it'll be fully operational within a couple of minutes. As you may need to use alternative web accelerators for selected sites, our state-of-the-art platform will permit you to personalize the software environment in your account. You'll be able to activate APC for different releases of PHP or use it only for some websites and not for others. For example, a Drupal-based Internet site can function with APC employing PHP 5.4 and a WordPress site can work without APC using PHP 5.6. All it takes to do the aforementioned is a php.ini file with a few lines in it, so you could run Internet sites with various requirements inside the same account.
