APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module which caches the output code of database-driven script applications. Dynamic PHP websites hold their content within a database that is accessed whenever a visitor loads a page. The content which should be shown 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 and every page which is accessed. While this cannot be avoided for Internet sites with regularly changing content, there are various sites which present the very same content on a number of of their webpages all of the time - blogs, informational portals, hotel and restaurant Internet sites, and many others. APC is exceptionally useful for this kind of Internet sites because it caches the previously compiled code and displays it when visitors browse the cached pages, so the code doesn't need to be parsed and compiled all over again. Not only will this greatly reduce the server load, but it will also raise the speed of any website many times.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Web Hosting

You can use APC with each web hosting package that we provide because it's already present on our advanced cloud platform and activating it will take you only a few clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. As our system is quite flexible, you'll be able to run sites with various system requirements and decide whether they will work with APC or not. For example, you could allow APC only for a single version of PHP or you can do this for several of the releases running on the platform. You may also select if all Internet sites working with a particular PHP version will use APC or whether the latter will be enabled only for selected sites and not for all websites in the web hosting account. The last option is useful when you want to employ a different web accelerator for some of your Internet sites. These customizations are performed effortlessly via a php.ini file in selected domain or subdomain folders.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting

APC is provided with all semi-dedicated hosting packages because it is pre-installed on the cloud hosting platform where your account will be created.

As you may want to use other web accelerators for selected websites, our leading-edge platform will enable you to customize the software environment inside your account. You will be able to activate APC for different releases of PHP or use it only for some Internet sites and not for others. For instance, a Drupal-based website can work with APC employing PHP 5.4 and a WordPress website can work without APC employing PHP 5.6. What is needed to do the aforementioned is a php.ini file with a couple of lines in it, so you can run Internet sites with various requirements inside the exact same account.
