APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module which caches the output code of database-driven script applications. Dynamic PHP websites save their content inside a database that is accessed whenever a visitor opens a page. The content that should be displayed is retrieved and the code is parsed and compiled before it's delivered to the website visitor. All these actions take some processing time and involve reading and writing on the hosting server for each and every page that is accessed. While this cannot be avoided for sites with constantly changing content, there are many Internet sites which offer the very same content on many of their pages constantly - blogs, info portals, hotel and restaurant websites, etcetera. APC is exceptionally useful for this kind of sites as it caches the already compiled code and displays it every time visitors browse the cached webpages, so the code doesn't need to be parsed and compiled repeatedly. This will not only lower the server load, but it will also boost the speed of any site many times.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Hosting

APC is pre-installed on our next generation cloud platform, so you'll be able to use it for your web applications regardless of the cloud hosting solution that you pick when you sign up. The module can be activated from your Hepsia internet hosting Control Panel that is used to manage the shared accounts and only a couple of minutes later it'll speed up your Internet sites since it'll begin caching their program code. If you need to run websites with different system requirements or take advantage of specific web accelerators for any of them, you can customize the software environment by placing a php.ini file in the preferred domain folder. This way, you can enable or disable APC not only for a particular website without affecting the other sites in the account, but also for a specific version of PHP because our platform supports multiple versions at the same time.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Servers

APC is installed on the amazing cloud web hosting platform where all semi-dedicated server accounts are made, so you will be able to use it whatever the plan you get. Enabling the module is performed from the Hepsia Control Panel and takes only a click, so you will not need any skills or previous experience in order to take full advantage of it. As you will be able to employ different versions of PHP at the same time, you will be able to modify the software environment for each and every website you host in the account if needed. A php.ini file with a couple of lines in it placed in a domain folder will allow you to set what version of PHP this specific website will use and if APC needs to be on or off for it. These settings will have priority over the ones for the account as a whole, so you can run various scripts and employ different web accelerators for websites which are in the same account.
