APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module that caches the output code of database-driven script software apps. Dynamic PHP Internet sites store their content within a database which is accessed whenever a visitor loads a page. The content that has to be displayed 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 web server for each and every page which is accessed. While this can't be avoided for Internet sites with constantly changing content, there are numerous websites which have the same content on a lot of of their webpages at all times - blogs, informational portals, hotel and restaurant websites, etc. APC is very useful for such sites because it caches the already compiled code and shows it every time visitors browse the cached webpages, so the code doesn't have to be parsed and compiled repeatedly. Not only will this reduce the server load, but it will also raise the speed of any Internet site many times.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Shared Website Hosting

You can use APC with each and every shared website hosting plan that we offer as it is already present on our advanced cloud platform and enabling it will take you only a few clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. Since our platform is really flexible, you can run sites with various requirements and decide whether they will work with APC or not. For instance, you could enable APC only for one version of PHP or you could do this for several of the versions that run on the platform. It's also possible to select if all websites using a given PHP version will use APC or whether the latter will be active just for selected Internet sites and not for all Internet sites in the web hosting account. The last option is useful if you would like to employ a different web accelerator for several of your Internet sites. These customizations are performed without any difficulty via a php.ini file in selected domain or subdomain folders.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can use APC with our semi-dedicated server solutions and activating the framework is performed with a click inside the Hepsia Control Panel, so even if you have no prior experience, you will be able to use it to boost your sites. As the cloud hosting platform where the semi-dedicated accounts are created is compatible with multiple PHP versions, you will have freedom regarding the scripts and web accelerators you will be able to employ. It will take you only a click to allow APC for one or several PHP versions and by using a php.ini file inside the domain/subdomain folders where you need settings which are not the same as the ones for the account in general, you will be able to set what PHP version will be used and whether APC has to be allowed or not. This way, one Internet site can use APC and PHP 5.3, for instance, and another one could use some other accelerator and PHP 5.5.
