APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module which caches the output code of database-driven script applications. Dynamic PHP Internet sites save their content within a database which is accessed whenever a visitor opens a page. The content that should be viewed is retrieved and the code is parsed and compiled before it is delivered to the website visitor. These actions need some processing time and require reading and writing on the hosting server for every single page which is opened. While this cannot be avoided for websites with constantly changing content material, there are numerous websites that have the same content on a lot of of their pages all the time - blogs, informational portals, hotel and restaurant websites, etcetera. APC is very useful for such websites as it caches the previously compiled code and shows it when visitors browse the cached webpages, so the code doesn't have to be parsed and compiled all over again. Not only will this greatly reduce the server load, but it'll also boost the speed of any site several times.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Hosting

APC is pre-installed on our cutting-edge cloud platform, which means that you can use it for your applications regardless of the cloud hosting solution that you select when you sign up. The module can be enabled through the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel which is used to handle the shared accounts and just several minutes later it will speed up your websites as it'll start caching their code. If you need to run sites with various system requirements or use different web accelerators for some of them, you'll be able to customize the software environment by placing a php.ini file in the preferred domain folder. In this way, you can enable or disable APC not only for a particular Internet site without affecting the remaining websites in the account, but also for a particular version of PHP because our platform is compatible with multiple versions at the same time.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Servers

APC is provided with all semi-dedicated server packages because it's pre-installed on the cloud hosting platform where your account shall be created. If you want to use this module, you'll be able to activate it with just a single click in your Hepsia Control Panel and it will be fully functional within a couple of minutes. Since you may want to use alternative web accelerators for selected sites, our advanced platform will allow you to customize the software environment inside your account. You'll be able to activate APC for different releases of PHP or use it just for some sites and not for others. For instance, a Drupal-based site can function with APC using PHP 5.4 and a WordPress site can function without APC employing PHP 5.6. What is needed to do that is a php.ini file with a few lines in it, so you will be able to run websites with various requirements inside the same account.
