APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module that caches the output code of database-driven script software apps. Dynamic PHP websites save their content inside a database which is accessed whenever a visitor loads a page. The content which needs to be viewed is gathered and the code is parsed and compiled before it is delivered to the visitor. All these actions take some processing time and require reading and writing on the hosting server for each and every page that is loaded. While this can't be avoided for websites with regularly changing content material, there're a lot of websites which have the very same content on a lot of of their pages all the time - blogs, info portals, hotel and restaurant sites, and many others. APC is very useful for such sites as it caches the already compiled code and shows it every time visitors browse the cached webpages, so the code does not have to be parsed and compiled again. This will not only minimize the server load, but it'll also boost the speed of any Internet site many times.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Shared Hosting

You can use APC with every single shared hosting package that we provide since it is already present on our advanced cloud platform and activating it will take you only a few clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. As our system is rather flexible, you'll be able to run websites with various system requirements and decide if they will work with APC or not. For instance, you can activate APC only for one version of PHP or you can do this for several of the versions that run on our platform. You can also decide if all Internet sites working with a particular PHP version will use APC or whether the latter will be active only for selected websites and not for all sites in the web hosting account. The aforementioned option is useful if you intend to employ a different web accelerator for several of your Internet sites. These customizations are performed effortlessly via a php.ini file in selected domain or subdomain folders.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can take advantage of APC with our semi-dedicated server plans and activating this framework is done with a mouse click inside the Hepsia Control Panel, so even if you have no prior experience, you'll be able to use it to quicken your Internet sites. As the cloud hosting platform where the semi-dedicated accounts are made is compatible with multiple PHP versions, you will have freedom with regards to the scripts and web accelerators you will be able to use. It will take you just a click to activate APC for one or a couple of PHP releases and by using a php.ini file in the domain/subdomain folders where you need settings which are different from the ones for the account as a whole, you will be able to set what PHP release will be used and whether APC has to be allowed or not. In this way, one Internet site may use APC and PHP 5.3, for instance, and another one may use a different accelerator and PHP 5.5.
