APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module which caches the output code of database-driven script apps. Dynamic PHP sites keep their content in a database which is accessed whenever a visitor opens a webpage. The content which needs to be shown is retrieved and the code is parsed and compiled before it's delivered to the website visitor. All of these actions take some processing time and require reading and writing on the hosting server for each page that is opened. While this can't be avoided for websites with constantly changing content, there're various websites that present the exact same content on a lot of of their webpages all the time - blogs, info portals, hotel and restaurant Internet sites, etcetera. APC is extremely useful for this type of sites because it caches the previously compiled code and shows it any time visitors browse the cached webpages, so the code does not need to be parsed and compiled repeatedly. This will not only minimize the server load, but it'll also boost the speed of any website many times.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Shared Web Hosting

You can use APC with every single shared web hosting package that we offer because it's already present on our advanced cloud platform and enabling it will take you just a couple of clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. Since our system is extremely flexible, you'll be able to run websites with different system requirements and decide whether they will work with APC or not. For example, you could allow APC only for a single release of PHP or you can do this for several of the versions that run on the platform. You may also choose if all sites working with a certain PHP version will use APC or if the latter will be enabled only for selected sites and not for all Internet sites in the hosting account. The aforementioned option is useful if you'd like to employ a different web accelerator for some of your sites. These customizations are carried out with ease by using a php.ini file in selected domain or subdomain folders.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting

APC is set up on the innovative cloud Internet hosting platform where all semi-dedicated hosting accounts are created, so you'll be able to use it irrespective of the package you get. Activating the module is performed from the Hepsia Control Panel and takes just a click, so you won't need any skills or prior experience to take full advantage of it. Since you will be able to use different versions of PHP at once, you'll be able to customize the software environment for each and every website which you host in the account if required. A php.ini file with a few lines in it placed in a domain folder will allow you to set what version of PHP this specific site will use and whether APC has to 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 employ different web accelerators for sites which are in the same account.
