APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module which caches the output code of database-driven script apps. Dynamic PHP Internet sites store their content inside a database which is accessed whenever a visitor opens a page. The content that needs to be displayed is gathered and the code is parsed and compiled before it is delivered to the visitor. These actions need some processing time and include reading and writing on the hosting server for each page which is opened. While this cannot be avoided for Internet sites with constantly changing content, there're many Internet sites which have the exact same content on a lot of of their pages all the time - blogs, info portals, hotel and restaurant websites, and many others. APC is quite useful for this kind of Internet sites as it caches the already compiled code and displays it each time visitors browse the cached webpages, so the code doesn't need to be parsed and compiled repeatedly. Not only will this decrease the server load, but it will also raise the speed of any site many times.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Shared Hosting

You can use APC with every single shared hosting package that we offer as it's already set up on our advanced cloud platform and enabling it will take you only a few clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. Since our system is extremely flexible, you will be able to run sites with different system requirements and decide whether they will use APC or not. For example, you can allow APC only for one release of PHP or you can do this for several of the versions running on the platform. You can also choose if all Internet sites using a certain PHP version will use APC or whether the latter will be active just for selected websites and not for all websites 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 done effortlessly by using a php.ini file in selected domain or subdomain folders.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting

APC is available with all semi-dedicated hosting packages as it is pre-installed on the cloud hosting platform where your account will be created. If you would like to use this module, you will be able to enable it with a single click from your Hepsia Control Panel and it'll be fully operational within a few minutes. As you may need to use some other web accelerators for selected sites, our cutting-edge platform will enable you to customize the software environment inside your account. You'll be able to activate APC for different versions of PHP or use it only for some Internet sites and not for others. For example, a Drupal-based website could work with APC using PHP 5.4 and a WordPress website could work without APC employing PHP 5.6. What is needed to do the latter is a php.ini file with a few lines in it, so you could run websites with different requirements inside the same account.
