APC, or Alternative PHP Cache, is a PHP module that caches the output code of database-driven script apps. Dynamic PHP sites hold their content in a database which is accessed whenever a visitor opens a page. The content that should be shown is gathered and the code is parsed and compiled prior to it being delivered to the site visitor. All of these actions need some processing time and involve reading and writing on the web server for each and every page that is opened. While this can't be avoided for Internet sites with regularly changing content, there are many sites that have the same content on a lot of of their webpages at all times - blogs, info portals, hotel and restaurant sites, and many others. APC is quite useful for such Internet sites as it caches the already compiled code and shows it whenever visitors browse the cached pages, so the code doesn't have to be parsed and compiled all over again. This will not only decrease the server load, but it'll also boost the speed of any site a few times.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Cloud Web Hosting

APC is pre-installed on our cutting-edge cloud platform, which means that you will be able to use it for your applications whatever the cloud web hosting solution that you pick when you join us. The module can be activated from your Hepsia internet 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 will start caching their program code. In case you wish to run websites with various system requirements or employ different web accelerators for some of them, you could 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 other Internet sites in the account, but also for a particular version of PHP since our platform is compatible with multiple versions simultaneously.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to use APC for each script application which is run on your new semi-dedicated hosting as the module is already installed on the cloud hosting platform where the account will be generated. Activating or deactivating APC for the account takes one click inside the Hepsia Control Panel, but if necessary, you can use the module just for particular sites. This is possible on account of the flexibility of our cloud platform - several releases of PHP run on it simultaneously, so with a php.ini file placed in a website folder, you can choose what release will be used for this particular Internet site 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 will be able to take advantage of APC for many scripts where the module can make a difference and not for others where you can employ some other kind of web accelerator.
