APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module that caches the output code of database-driven script apps. Dynamic PHP Internet sites keep their content in a database which is accessed whenever a visitor loads a page. The content which should be displayed is retrieved and the code is parsed and compiled before it is delivered to the website visitor. All of these actions take some processing time and involve reading and writing on the server for each page which is opened. While this can't be avoided for Internet sites with constantly changing content, there're a lot of sites which have the very same content on many of their webpages all the time - blogs, informational portals, hotel and restaurant sites, etc. APC is really useful for such websites since it caches the already compiled code and displays it each time visitors browse the cached pages, so the code doesn't have to be parsed and compiled all over again. Not only will this decrease the server load, but it'll also raise the speed of any website several times.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Website Hosting

You can use APC with every single website hosting package that we provide because it is already present on our advanced cloud platform and enabling it will take you only a couple of clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. As our system is quite flexible, you'll be able to run sites with different requirements and decide if they will work with APC or not. For example, you can enable APC only for one version of PHP or you can do the latter for several of the versions running on our platform. In addition, you can decide if all websites working with a given PHP version will use APC or whether the latter will be active just for selected sites and not for all websites in the website hosting account. The aforementioned option is useful if you want to employ a different web accelerator for several of your sites. These customizations are carried out effortlessly by using a php.ini file in selected domain or subdomain folders.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting

APC is set up on the state-of-the-art cloud Internet hosting platform where all semi-dedicated hosting accounts are created, so you will be able to employ it regardless of the package you select. Enabling the module is done through the Hepsia Control Panel and takes only a click, so you will not need any skills or previous experience to take full advantage of it. As you'll be able to work with several versions of PHP simultaneously, you'll be able to modify the software environment for every single Internet site that you host in the account if necessary. A php.ini file with a couple of lines in it placed in a domain folder will enable you to set what version of PHP this Internet site will use and if APC should be on or off for it. These settings will have priority over those for the account in general, so you could run various scripts and employ various web accelerators for sites that are in the same account.
