APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module that caches the output code of database-driven script software apps. Dynamic PHP sites store their content in a database which is accessed whenever a visitor opens a webpage. The content that should be viewed is retrieved and the code is parsed and compiled before it is delivered to the site visitor. All of these actions need some processing time and require reading and writing on the web server for every single page that is loaded. While this can't be avoided for Internet sites with constantly changing content material, there are a lot of Internet sites that feature the very same content on a number of of their webpages all the time - blogs, informational portals, hotel and restaurant sites, and many others. APC is exceptionally useful for such websites as it caches the already compiled code and shows it each time visitors browse the cached pages, so the code doesn't need to be parsed and compiled repeatedly. Not only will this greatly reduce the server load, but it'll also raise the speed of any Internet site a few times.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Shared Website Hosting

APC is pre-installed on our next generation cloud platform, which means that you will be able to use it for your web applications regardless of the shared website hosting plan that you pick when you join us. The module can be enabled from your Hepsia internet hosting Control Panel that is used to handle the shared accounts and just a few minutes later it will speed up your sites because it will begin caching their program code. If you need to run Internet sites with different system requirements or use different web accelerators for some of them, you will be able to customize the software environment by placing a php.ini file in the desired domain folder. This way, you could enable or disable APC not only for a particular site without affecting the remaining Internet sites in the account, but also for a certain version of PHP as our platform is compatible with multiple versions at the same time.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting

APC is provided with all semi-dedicated hosting plans as it's pre-installed on the cloud website hosting platform where your account shall be created. In case you would like to use this module, you will be able to enable it with a single click in your Hepsia Control Panel and it will be fully operational within a couple of minutes. Since you may need to use alternative web accelerators for selected sites, our leading-edge platform will allow you to personalize the software environment in your account. You'll be able to activate APC for different versions of PHP or use it just for some websites and not for others. For instance, a Drupal-based Internet site can function with APC using PHP 5.4 and a WordPress site can function without APC employing PHP 5.6. All it takes to do the latter is a php.ini file with a couple of lines in it, so you could run sites with various requirements inside the same account.
