APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module that caches the output code of database-driven script apps. Dynamic PHP websites store their content within a database that is accessed whenever a visitor loads a webpage. The content which should be shown is gathered and the code is parsed and compiled prior to it being delivered to the website visitor. These actions take some processing time and require reading and writing on the hosting server for every single page that is loaded. While this can't be avoided for Internet sites with regularly changing content material, there are many Internet sites which present the exact same content on many of their webpages at all times - blogs, informational portals, hotel and restaurant sites, etc. APC is exceptionally useful for this kind of websites as it caches the already compiled code and shows it every time visitors browse the cached pages, so the code does not need to be parsed and compiled repeatedly. This will not only decrease the server load, but it will also boost the speed of any website several times.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Shared Web Hosting

You can use APC with each and every shared web hosting package that we provide since it is already present on our advanced cloud platform and activating it will take you only a few clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. As our platform is really flexible, you will be able to run sites with different requirements and decide if they will use APC or not. For instance, you can allow APC only for a single version of PHP or you could do this for several of the releases running on our platform. You can also choose if all Internet sites using a given PHP version will use APC or if the latter will be active just for selected sites and not for all sites in the hosting account. The last option is useful when you intend to employ a different web accelerator for several of your sites. These customizations are carried out effortlessly by using a php.ini file in selected domain or subdomain folders.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can use APC for each script application that is run on your new semi-dedicated hosting since the module is already installed on the cloud hosting platform where the account will be created. Activating or deactivating APC for the whole account requires a click inside the Hepsia Control Panel, but if needed, you can use the module just for specific Internet sites. This is possible on account of the versatility of our cloud platform - different versions of PHP run on it at the same time, so with a php.ini file placed in a website folder, you'll be able to pick what release will be used for this specific website and whether APC should be enabled or disabled. Employing such a file allows you to use settings which are different from the standard ones for your account, so you can take full advantage of APC for many scripts where the module can make a difference and not for others where you can use a different kind of web accelerator.
