APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module that caches the output code of database-driven script software apps. Dynamic PHP Internet sites save their content within a database that is accessed whenever a visitor opens a page. The content which needs to be shown is gathered and the code is parsed and compiled prior to it being delivered to the site visitor. These actions take some processing time and require reading and writing on the web server for each page which is opened. While this cannot be avoided for Internet sites with regularly changing content material, there're a lot of sites which present the same content on a lot of of their pages all of the time - blogs, informational portals, hotel and restaurant Internet sites, etc. APC is really useful for this type of Internet sites since it caches the already compiled code and displays it any time visitors browse the cached webpages, so the code doesn't have to be parsed and compiled again. Not only will this lower the server load, but it will also increase the speed of any website many times.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Shared Website Hosting

APC is pre-installed on our outstanding cloud platform, so you'll be able to use it for your applications whatever the shared website hosting package that you select when you register. The module can be activated through the Hepsia internet hosting Control Panel that is used to control the shared accounts and just a few minutes later it'll boost your Internet sites because it'll begin caching their program code. If you would like to run sites with various system requirements or employ different web accelerators for any of them, you'll be able to customize the software environment by putting a php.ini file in the desired domain folder. This way, you can enable or disable APC not just for a specific site without affecting the remaining sites in the account, but also for a particular version of PHP because our platform supports multiple versions at the same time.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting

APC is provided with all semi-dedicated hosting packages as it's pre-installed on the cloud hosting platform where your account shall be created. In case you'd like to use this module, you can enable it with just a single click from your Hepsia Control Panel and it will be fully operational within a couple of minutes.

For example, a Drupal-based website can work with APC employing PHP 5.4 and a WordPress site could work without APC employing PHP 5.6. What is needed to do the latter is a php.ini file with a few lines in it, so you'll be able to run Internet sites with different requirements from the very same account.
