APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module that caches the output code of database-driven script apps. Dynamic PHP websites keep their content in a database which is accessed whenever a visitor loads a page. The content that has to be viewed is gathered and the code is parsed and compiled prior to it being delivered to the site visitor. All these actions take some processing time and include reading and writing on the web server for each page which is opened. While this can't be avoided for sites with regularly changing content material, there are various websites which have the very same content on a lot of of their pages all of the time - blogs, info portals, hotel and restaurant websites, etc. APC is extremely useful for such Internet sites as it caches the already compiled code and displays it any time visitors browse the cached webpages, so the code doesn't need to be parsed and compiled repeatedly. This will not only decrease the server load, but it'll also raise the speed of any Internet site a few times.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Shared Hosting

APC is pre-installed on our state-of-the-art cloud platform, therefore you'll be able to use it for your web applications irrespective of the shared hosting solution that you select when you sign up. The module can be enabled from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is used to take care of the shared accounts and just a couple of minutes later it will boost your sites since it'll start caching their program code. In case you wish to run sites with various system requirements or use different web accelerators for any of them, you will be able to customize the software environment by putting a php.ini file inside the preferred domain folder. Thus, you could enable or disable APC not just for a certain Internet site without affecting the remaining sites in the account, but also for a certain version of PHP as our platform is compatible with multiple versions simultaneously.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting

APC is installed on the state-of-the-art cloud hosting platform where all semi-dedicated hosting accounts are made, so you could employ it regardless of the plan you choose. Enabling the module is performed from the Hepsia Control Panel and takes only a mouse click, so you will not need any skills or earlier experience to take full advantage of it. Since you will be able to work with several releases of PHP at the same time, you will be able to modify the software environment for each website you host in the account if required. A php.ini file with a few lines in it placed in a domain folder will enable you to set what version of PHP this Internet site will use and if APC should be on or off for it. These settings will have priority over the ones for the account in general, so you could run different scripts and take advantage of various web accelerators for websites that are in the same account.
