APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module that caches the output code of database-driven script software apps. Dynamic PHP websites hold their content within a database that is accessed whenever a visitor loads a webpage. The content that should be viewed is gathered and the code is parsed and compiled before it's delivered to the website visitor. All of these actions need some processing time and include reading and writing on the web server for each and every page which is loaded. While this can't be avoided for Internet sites with constantly changing content, there are many websites that feature the very same content on a lot of of their webpages all of the time - blogs, informational portals, hotel and restaurant sites, and many others. APC is extremely useful for this type of sites as it caches the previously compiled code and shows it any time visitors browse the cached pages, so the code does not have to be parsed and compiled all over again. Not only will this minimize the server load, but it'll also raise the speed of any Internet site many times.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Shared Website Hosting

APC is pre-installed on our state-of-the-art cloud platform, therefore you will be able to use it for your applications regardless of the shared website hosting package that you choose when you register. The module can be enabled through the Hepsia internet hosting Control Panel which is used to take care of the shared accounts and just a few minutes later it'll speed up your Internet sites because it'll start caching their code. If you would like to run sites with different system requirements or take advantage of specific web accelerators for any of them, you could customize the software environment by putting a php.ini file inside the desired domain folder. In this way, you could enable or disable APC not just for a particular site without affecting the remaining websites in the account, but also for a certain version of PHP because our platform is compatible with multiple versions simultaneously.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can take advantage of APC with our semi-dedicated hosting solutions and activating the framework is performed with a click in the Hepsia Control Panel, so even if you lack prior experience, you can use it to boost your Internet sites. As the cloud internet 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 can use. It will take you only a click to activate APC for one or several PHP versions and by using a php.ini file inside the domain/subdomain folders where you need settings which are different from the ones for the account as a whole, you can set what PHP version will be used and whether APC needs to be allowed or not. This way, one site can use APC and PHP 5.3, for instance, and another one may use some different accelerator and PHP 5.5.
