APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module that caches the output code of database-driven script software apps. Dynamic PHP sites keep their content in a database which is accessed whenever a visitor loads a webpage. The content which should be displayed is gathered and the code is parsed and compiled prior to it being delivered to the site visitor. All of these actions take some processing time and involve reading and writing on the web server for each and every page which is loaded. While this can't be avoided for websites with regularly changing content material, there are numerous Internet sites which have the exact same content on a lot of of their webpages at all times - blogs, info portals, hotel and restaurant Internet sites, and many others. APC is extremely useful for such sites since it caches the already compiled code and displays it any time visitors browse the cached webpages, so the code does not have to be parsed and compiled again. This will not only reduce the server load, but it will also boost the speed of any Internet site many times.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Website Hosting

You can use APC with each cloud website hosting package that we provide as it is already present on our advanced cloud platform and enabling it will take you only a few clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. As our system is rather flexible, you can run Internet sites with various system requirements and decide if they will use APC or not. For instance, you could activate APC only for a single version of PHP or you could do this for several of the versions that run on our platform. In addition, you can choose if all sites working with a specific PHP version will use APC or if the latter will be active only for selected Internet sites and not for all websites in the website 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 with ease by using a php.ini file in selected domain or subdomain folders.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Servers

APC is available with all semi-dedicated server packages because it's pre-installed on the cloud hosting platform where your account shall be created. In case you want to use this module, you will be able to activate it with just a single click from your Hepsia Control Panel and it will be fully functional in a few minutes. As you may need to use other web accelerators for selected Internet sites, our cutting-edge 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 example, a Drupal-based Internet site could work with APC employing PHP 5.4 and a WordPress website could work without APC using PHP 5.6. What is needed to do that is a php.ini file with a few lines in it, so you can run sites with various requirements from the very same account.
